The NHL renamed its divisions and conferences for the new season, but changing names didn’t change the fact the Oilers were no longer even a shadow of the team that won the 1990 Stanley Cup and would be lousy again in missing the playoffs for the second season in a row.

One year ago, David Musil had just completed his first NHL cup of coffee. Playing well after his first NHL recall, Musil picked up an assist (his second in three games), played 19 minutes and posted a solid showing. One year later? Another solid AHL season is wrapping up, but no time in the NHL for the young defender. What does his future look like?

Connor McDavid’s first NHL season is over and while the NHL awards voters may opt to give the Calder to Artemi Panarin (who incidentally doesn’t consider himself a rookie and has been a professional since McDavid was 12), the fact remains that McDavid has lived up to all of the hype that preceded his entrance into the NHL. He is a genius, a virtuoso on the ice. This is no more apparent than looking at the effect he had on his linemates.

Oscar Klefbom was the Oilers best defenceman for the first 30 games of the season. The Oilers were 13-15-2 with him in the lineup, and they were 18-28-6 without him. They need him healthy and in the lineup next season.
I spoke to Klefbom yesterday on my show and he discussed his "nightmare" season, the need for a specially fitted skate and what his prognosis looks like for next season.
