Jason Gregor and Robin Brownlee have already told us they believe Ales Hemsky is headed out of town, and Jim Matheson has been telling us 83 is in play for a long time. If all three say it, does that make it true?

I doubt Nashville GM David Poile has taken leave of his financial senses to a point where he'll put Shea Weber on the trade block now, but if he did, should Edmonton GM Craig MacTavish offer a package of players including Ryan Nugent-Hopkins or Taylor Hall to get in on the action?

For the most part, the Edmonton Oilers’ forward line combinations at their first full Olympic practice were what one would expect. The first overall picks were kept together, as they had been before the Olympic break. The bottom-nine skaters were exactly the same too, except for one switch: Ales Hemsky took David Perron’s role as second line left wing, while Perron took Hemsky’s spot on the checking line.

There is no doubt it will be difficult to go from watching Canada's team of all-stars dominate the rest of the world, to watching the Oilers try and salvage another lost season. However, Oilers fans are a resilient bunch and the final 22 games should carry more importance, than previous years in shaping the future of this team.

One thing about Craig MacTavish: when it comes to making trades, he's not a stay-at-home. Since the season began, no GM has been more active in trying to make his team better.
