Can you believe it's finally the week of the Golden Bears and Oilers rookie game? Seriously! Go check your calendars to make sure I'm not dreaming - I'll wait here. Okay good. The problem with feeling all this excitement is that we have to wait all the way until Wednesday for Connor McDavid and the other rookies to suit up against the Bears at Rexall Place. Luckily the mailbag is here to help you kill a little bit of that time.

Edmonton Oilers forward Leon Draisaitl has stood out at the Young Stars tournament in Penticton this weekend. Though the pace of the game, even at this level, can occasionally leave him looking a step behind, there's no arguing with Draisaitl's consistent production, his size, or his high-end ability to protect and dish the puck.

We're back! After a long spring and summer without prospect updates, we're seeing some nice progression in the Okanagan and other hockey locales. Things will ratchet up heavily over the next two weeks but there's already lots to be excited about for Oilers fans.

I expected Edmonton Oilers’ GM Pete Chiarelli to intentionally set the bar low for Connor McDavid’s rookie season when he sat down with TSN’s Bob McKenzie in Penticton Saturday because, really, that’s the smart thing for him to do. He most certainly obliged.

Peter Chiarelli sat down with Bob McKenzie of TSN yesterday and among the subjects of conversation (as you'd expect) was the defense. Chiarelli's views are a fascinating look into a man trying to improve a defense with a lot of problems.
