I don’t know about you, but I found myself fixated on Nikita Nikitin as he lurched around the ice shift after shift for the Edmonton Oilers on the way to a 4-1 loss to the Winnipeg Jets at Rexall Place Monday. I was half-expecting a leg or an arm to fall off. Thankfully, no.

Everybody... tank your body. Everybody... tank. Your. Body right. Final Score: 4-1 Jets.

The Edmonton Oilers' 2014/2015 season has not been good (understatement of the year), but when you look at how they match up against western division opponents; it has been downright pathetic.
The Oilers are 5-25-10 against the west.
They've been outscored 138 to 80.
They've been outshot 1,230 to 1,068.
They are 3-15-1 at home.

When last we checked in on Leon Draisaitl he had just completed 15 games of his WHL stint. He was roughly half way through that season and while he was doing well, he was still just finding his way around a new team. The big Oiler prospect found himself playing for the Kelowna Rockets who are poised atop the WHL’s Western Conference Standings and second in the WHL only to the Brandon Wheat Kings. So how does he look now that the WHL regular season is over?
