Like it or not, we are going to be talking about the draft again in Edmonton this spring. Unless the Edmonton Oilers plan on going all 'Ralston Purina St. Louis Blues', they are very likely to be sitting front row, feature table. The good news? Some outstanding players are available.

A day after his return to the AHL, Griffin Reinhart is bound for the AHL. Going with him are defenceman Brad Hunt and winger Zack Kassian.

The Edmonton Oilers reach the All-Star break miles before the rest of the league, but no one is complaining. The injury list is long and includes some of the best roster players (not) available, and the callups are lacking in important (defensive) areas. Hurry sundown, bring the All-Star break, bring rest, healing and a better day. The first 50 games for the Oilers were rife with danger, heartbreak and disappointment, and they barely (seriously) saved their bacon.

Few people can divide a room in Oil country the way Nail Yakupov can. The former 1st Overall pick has been a lightning rod for criticism since he arrived in Edmonton and that hasn’t changed one bit. He’s earned a reputation as a weak defensive player and that’s been supported by number as well as by eye. Well, that is, it has up until this year.
