Gerry Fleming is obviously very high on what he’s got when it comes to the perspective lineup of the Bakersfield Condors.

Yes, Marc-Andre Bergeron. While most fans of the Edmonton Oilers would just as soon forget Bergeron ever donned team silks at all, he gets the first spot in our list of the Top 100 Oilers of 1979-80 to 2014-15 in a series we’ll be running over the next 24 months or so. What, you wanted Bob Beers?

Sometime tomorrow (possibly Wednesday) the Edmonton Oilers will release their rookie camp roster for the Penticton trip. The list is bound to include Darnell Nurse and Connor McDavid (in photo by Connor Mah) and several other future NHL players. We've grown accustomed to a 'backwards season' in Edmonton, where the draft and rookie camps represent the highlight and the playoffs are a time for draft watches and some other city raising Stanley. It's been so long, and there's probably some blacktop to go before we see the playoffs in Edmonton. I've said it before and I'll say it now: This team HAS to turn north this season.

Connor McDavid is going to move into Taylor Hall's house when he arrives in Edmonton. For some fans this was a bit of a surprise, but when you take a step back it makes a lot of sense for the young phenom.
