This morning, Edmonton Oiler players and fans begin their annual journey through training camp and pre-season. It is a bonding ritual that dates back decades and includes some of the very best players in the history of the game. Today, eyes that have followed great players, also rans and never-were's will follow Taylor Hall, Magnus Pääjärvi, Jordan Eberle, Tyler Pitlick and others. This year is believed to be more important than recent seasons. Why?

I was set to make my season predictions for the Edmonton Oilers today (not really), but in the spirit of not burying Pat Burns until he's stopped breathing, I'll hold off and ask a question: What's the hurry?

As training camp draws closer and the excitement level starts to build in the City, we can't help but pity Tom Renney.

Day one of training camp isn’t very exciting. The media stands around slugging coffee, eating muffins,debating the reasoning behind the training camp lines and wondering how a station can report Pat Burns has passed away, only to recant the report due to erroneous information. ***I'm not making light of Burns' health, rather how incredibly insensitive we've become as a society that people race to be the first to report someone has passed away. It's disgusting in my view.***

The Edmonton Oilers have not yet released their training camp roster. Steve Tambellini told the media that 64 men will be in camp. The list is about the same as last years (63), very young, full of tall trees (especially on the blue) and flush with boys from the Western league. This is a list you might want to pay close attention to--many of these kids are going to be around for a long, long time.
