If you've been hanging around OilersNation for any length of time you know that I love doing photoshop contests. Not only do I dig seeing what you guys will come up with, but I also like the idea of giving stuff away for a contest that is always hilarious. You guys crush these things, and I'm excited about these things. This time around, we've stepped up the prizes and I promise you that you're going to want to be a part of this one. Whoever wins this contest is coming with us on the Nation trip to the outdoor game in Winnipeg thanks to our friends at AMA Travel.
I know you guys would normally be expecting the Mailbag right now, but we're giving that a break this week to make way for the pre-season roundtable (coming up tomorrow).

The Edmonton Oilers took a chance on Tyler Benson at the 2016 Entry Draft. What kind of chance? Clearly a first-round talent (Corey Pronman had him No. 18), Benson had some injury issues that hurt his draft number. Benson was hurt again before main NHL camp and was unable to showcase his ability for Oilers fans, but is now healthy and beginning a very important season for him. How is it going?

The Edmonton Oilers are getting closer to being a contender, but the team still needs AHL prospects and junior kids pushing up the depth chart. We are through preseason and it is very interesting to see who scored well, who is still around, and who didn't get much of a look. Here are 11 players who surprised—good and bad—in the last three weeks.

Ten more players were placed on waivers on Sunday, including a pair of established NHL forwards.

It’s clear with the team's recent transactions that the Oilers are determined to never again gift a player NHL minutes before he earns them. No more entitled freeloaders who don’t belong. No more allowing draft position to determine roster spots…unless it’s Jesse Puljujarvi. Then that’s exactly what might happen.
