On the bright side, we're one game closer to McDavid's return. Final Score: 4-2 Blackhawks

The Edmonton Oilers have all of their marquee names at the NHL level now, meaning the minors, juniors, college and Euro updates lack an impact player to track. The performances this week were compelling though, including a lot of offense from defensemen.

The 5-9-0 Oilers hit the road to hell this week, with stops in Chicago, Anaheim, Arizona and Los Angeles. By this time next week, we could be talking about the death of another season or a brand new day. Hold on!

I sit here, trying to remember a time before the Connor McDavid injury, and it all just seems like a blur. We were happy and prosperous and had dreams for the future. Now we live in a post-apocalyptic hellscape where nothing can grow and clans battle each other for control over gasoline and water. Actually, now that I think about it, that may just be the plot of Mad Max. Either way here's First Star, Worst Star.

The Edmonton Oilers recalled Darnell Nurse and Leon Draisaitl to the NHL during October, and now find themselves with a rather pedestrian prospect base among the 'bubbling under' set. No 'certain success' prospects in the AHL, no one in junior or in Europe who we can absolutely call a top-drawer prospect. That's a problem, and Peter Chiarelli needs to address the lack of top-end prospects in the system.
