The All-Star weekend is over, so we can get back to talking about things that matter... Like the All-Star weekend in hindsight!

It’s been duly noted since the Edmonton Oilers started calling Rogers Place home that the swank new downtown barn doesn’t have the rowdy and raucous vibe old Rexall Place did, spawning the unflattering nickname The Library.
It’s also been pointed out the new rink, for all its bells and whistles and high-tech guts, has lousy ice. That makes it a wash with the old joint, whose reputation for having maybe the best ice in the NHL lasted at least a decade past when it actually was that good.

Happy 'we're-in-a-playoff-spot-on-a-Monday-late-January' to all of you! I promise to work turning days like these into civic holidays so we can all sit at home in our undies, but there's still a ways to go. Until then, let's all kill some time together whilst learning about the Oilers we love and arguing with the strangers we hate. Allow the Mailbag to dust off a few minutes of company time and get you closer to going home. As always, I need questions for the Mailbag so email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or hit me up on Twitter at @jsbmbaggedmilk. Enough of me - let's learn something.

Jesse Puljujarvi continues to flourish in Bakersfield, and the Condors enjoyed a nice run this week. Action across the prospect universe. Let's have a look.

This is Eddie Shore, as a member of the Melville Millionaires. Shore was born in Fort Qu'Appelle, Saskatchewan about 114 years ago. A brilliant, rugged and effective player, he became known as 'The Edmonton Express' and by 1926 was an emerging star for the Boston Bruins of the NHL. This weekend, folks are arguing about the top 100 players of all-time, and whether Connor McDavid is the fastest man alive (he is), I would like to go in another direction: Let's talk about us.
