Tyler Pitlick played for the Oklahoma City tonight, scoring a goal and adding an assist in the Barons game against Rochester. He's 2-2-4 in his last five games, and should be close to ready for callup.

Somehow or other we find ourselves in Nashville, home of the Predators, Shea Weber and apple pie moonshine. You could call apple pie moonshine a predator too as when we were all drinking it out of mason jars last night at 230 in the morning it succeeded in killing my night in spectacular fashion.

The Edmonton Oilers traded away Ryan Martindale today. Martindale was the 61st overall pick in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, a big centre with good hands who, if all had gone well, might have been a perfect fit as the second line pivot in Edmonton.
All didn’t go well, and it’s a move that’s going to feed into the perception that the Oilers have done a poor job of converting important, non-first overall picks into value. Is that perception accurate?

When Craig Mactavish took over as Oilers GM he said the Oilers needed to be harder to play against. Move by move he is slowly grinding this Oiler team in that direction.

It is time for the Oilers to stop the distractions.
They need to stop believing that a consistent rotation of head coaches, 4th liners and 3rd pairing defenders will help them become a winner. The organization and some pundits also need to stop expecting goalies to cover up all the weaknesses in front of them.
It hasn't worked so far, and it won't work moving forward.
