Let's be honest here for a minute... you're at work and you're not doing anything work related. I, for one, salute you slackers and encourage you to do so. With that, here is another rendition of the Monday mailbag. I need questions for next week so if you've got one email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

It's been four years since the Edmonton Oilers invested a high second-round selection on Tyler Pitlick. He made his NHL debut last season, and showed some flashes of NHL ability. What are his chances of making the team this season? Have they improved over summer?

How many goals can we expect from the two, and how does the Oilers’ top-nine forward group compare to the best teams in the West in terms of projected goal-scoring?

The Edmonton Oilers are a team badly in need of secondary scoring. The top line is the marquee item, but would Dallas Eakins be better off breaking up the line and trying to find two units that work?

Nail Yakupov is the most interesting player on the Edmonton Oilers roster because he is still something of a mystery. He has high-end skill – his first overall selection in the 2012 Draft was no accident – and led all rookies in scoring in the lockout-shortened 2012-13 season. On the other hand, things went very, very, badly last season.
What should we expect from him in the goal-scoring department in 2014-15?
