The Oilers would love nothing more than to erase 2014 from their memories. It has been a terrible calender year for the Blue and Orange.
They've played 77 games.
They've won 24 of them.
They have totaled 59 of a possible 154 points.
It hasn't been pretty, but they will try to end 2014 on a good note; with back-to-back wins.

The question of what the Oil should do with Rookie Leon Draisaitl at the 40 game mark of the season has been a point of speculation for some time. On Tuesday Mark Spector felt comfortable stating that based on his information the Oilers would be sending the big German to the WHL by Saturday.

Today is the round robin match that everyone has been waiting for. Team Canada vs. Team Our Parents Immigrated from Canada. As a child of the 80s it seems odd to consider the US as Canada's chief hockey rival, but I can no longer trap myself in 1987 and continue to believe that the Russians are the greatest test for Canada.
This game preview could take the high road and talk about how great the US National Team Development Program is, and how I wish that Hockey Canada had something resembling anything close to that. We could talk about how this game could be a gold medal preview and features the two undefeated teams from Group A and a victory has the high stakes of a much easier path to the medal round, though losing to the Swiss or the Czechs would be unlikely for either of these teams.

Edmonton Oilers' fans are going to get a good look at the future this afternoon, as Team Canada meets Team USA at the World Juniors. For your viewing pleasure: Darnell, plus the 1-2 punch of Connor McDavid and Jack Eichel. All nationalism aside, it's going to be a barn burner!
