The Edmonton Oilers recalled Anton Lander to the NHL today. Again. Another time. One of these times, Lander isn't going to run to the phone! Just kidding. We know Anton Lander very well, but what has he been doing down on the farm? In one phrase: flattening the competition.

When the Vegas Golden Knights make their selection from the Edmonton Oilers at this summer’s expansion draft, my guess is that it will be one of two players: Benoit Pouliot or Mark Fayne.
Superficially, neither is an ideal pick for Vegas, but Oilers GM Peter Chiarelli has the ability to make such a choice worthwhile for the Knights, and presumably he also has the motivation.
