Last night the Oklahoma City Barons made Martin Marincin a scratch. It seemed at first it was a healthy scratch but Jim Matheson suggests he might be a little banged up. Nonetheless they took him out.* They won the game, though on the back of a great performance by Richard Bachman. I won’t be so bold as to say he didn’t deserve to be made a scratch because unlike when he was demoted from the Oilers I haven’t had the chance to see him play. What I will say is that Martin Marincin’s success needs to be a priority for the club.

The World Championships concluded on Sunday with Canada winning Gold for the first time since 2007. Canada dominated the tournament outscoring their opponents 66-15 on their way to a perfect 10-0 record.

Jason Spezza led the tournament with 14 points and was named an all-star. Jordan Eberle was second in scoring with 13 points, while Taylor Hall finished third with 12 points and was named an all-star. Hall's seven goals were third most in the tourney, Tyler Seguin (9) and Filip Forsberg (8) had more, but all of Hall's goals came at even strength. Seguin had five PP goals and Forsberg had two.

For the Oilers and their fans, the 2015 off-season just continues to get better.

Unless everybody has it absolutely wrong, Todd McLellan will be (or already is) the next coach of the Edmonton Oilers and his hiring could be made official as early as Tuesday. What I’m wondering is what his coaching staff will look like.
