The Oklahoma City Barons took eight days off so the Utica Comets could catch up. Tonight the quarterfinal gets underway and it should be an entertaining series for Oilers fans.

As tempting as it might be for the Edmonton Oilers to wait on Mike Babcock and throw the bank at him if he becomes available, if I’m Peter Chiarelli, I’m doing everything in my power to persuade Todd McLellan and Todd Nelson to be my coaching tandem next season.

It looks like Peter Chiarelli is doing his due diligence as reports circulate that Todd Nelson will be interviewed for the Head Coaching position at some point this weekend. I'm not going to lie, having all these "interviews" for positions within the Oilers organization seems so foreign to me. These are strange times, friends.

Jackson Houck was part of the Edmonton Oilers’ 2013 draft class, selected in the fourth round. Like several other 2013 picks, he must be signed to an entry-level contract this summer or he’ll re-enter the draft. His release from a tryout contract with the Oklahoma City Barons doesn’t seem like a positive sign on that count.
