Based on what’s happened so far in training camp, it sounds like Ben Eager has a pretty decent shot at re-establishing himself as an NHL player with Edmonton this year.

The Edmonton Oilers are over a week away from the beginning of their regular season, but their prospects are getting started in junior and Euro leagues. Early returns are very encouraging.

After a day off the Oilers were back working hard on and off the ice. As the morning group went through battle drills and line rushes, the 2nd unit (guys not playing tomorrow) were doing off-ice training. Pre and post-skate workouts aren't new to the players, many have done them in the past, but under Eakins it is much more regimented.

Last night in New Jersey marked the first time you saw two players in a National Hockey League game circumvent the new rule where a player cannot remove his own helmet prior to a fight. Instead Brett Gallant and Krys Barch politely removed each other’s before throwing punches.

Yesterday, gambling website Bovada set their over/under numbers for five of the Oilers’ best forwards. Where do they see those players landing?
