This week the boys are joined by MULTIPLE SPECIAL GUESTS!!! First Kyla The Intern talks about her hatred of bikes, the legality of names on birth certificates, and scorching hot takes on peppers, before the boys play a bunk game of NHL trivia, Graphic Designer JoAnne recaps her Quebec trip and weighs in on the Phil Kessel Team USA snub before all the most pressing questions are answered in this weeks edition of Ask The Idiots.

Sup, Oilers Nation? I'm here to let you in on a little secret today:
Jordan Eberle isn't elite.
Wanna know another secret, though? It totally, absolutely does not matter.

You didn't have the day off either, huh? I guess that means it's Monday again. Fortunately, the Mailbag is here with 3000 words worth of company time killing wisdom that your brain will eager to soak up. Learning? On a Monday morning? That's right, my friends. At the Nation, we're not just about yellin' all things Oilers, we're also about learnin' you stuff and making 5pm roll around just a little bit faster. As always, I need questions for next week so keep them coming in through email or Twitter. Keep your questions Oilers related or maybe you want to learn about life. Either way, we've got you covered. Until then, enjoy the break from productivity.

NHL equivalencies are a great way to put a bunch of players outside the NHL into a single category for the purposes of estimating offense. It is not perfect, but does act as a reasonable guideline for fans to project prospects into the immediate future. This year's NHLEs have one major issue, but once again give us a solid look at Edmonton's top forward prospects.

On Friday, I looked at how Edmonton’s defencemen fared when played against the best opponents in the NHL last year. Immediately and repeatedly I was asked to show how newcomer Adam Larsson did in the same role.
The answer is that it’s complicated.
