Were there specific teams this season that the Oilers’ exceptional trio of Taylor Hall, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Jordan Eberle struggled against or lit up? If so, is there a common trend in those teams – did bigger teams or faster teams, or particular matchups make the difference?

A source told me tomorrow afternoon Hockey Alberta will announce that beginning next season there will be no more checking in peewee.
The email I received said, "Effective immediately checking will be removed from peewee hockey."

When Paul MacLean was named head coach of the Ottawa Senators, many people felt he was put in place to take a lot of heat. The team seemed to be in rebuilding mode. Many young players would be in the lineup. Winning seasons did not seem to be right in the future.

The idea that Craig MacTavish and Scott Howson were huge parts of getting the Oilers into the mess that Steve Tambellini proved unable to extricate the team from is one that has a certain amount of resonance with Oilers fans. After all, MacTavish was the head coach of the team for many years, and Howson was the assistant general manager, so doesn’t handing the reins over to that duo just guarantee more of the same?
