The Edmonton Oiler players are up and at it early this morning as medicals started at 7:30 a.m. The usual eye test, VO2 max and overall checkups will take close to 90 minutes. Then the players will do a plethora of photo shoots and promo campaigns before they hit the ice tomorrow morning at 11 a.m. at Rexall Place.

You are likely sick of waiting for the NHL to release the 2013 schedule, and so is friend of the Nation, loyal reader and proud Albertan Evangeline Lilly. Lilly hails from Fort Saskatchewan and when she isn't busy staring in movies, she will be in part two and three of the Hobbit, she likes to read the nation.*
Here is what we know about the Oilers schedule that should be released later today. Of course it is the NHL, so there is always a chance you might have to wait until tomorrow.

He’s no Roberto Luongo, but Ales Hemsky is no stranger to trade rumours. The lead-up to last season’s trade deadline featured his name prominently in proposed and rumoured deals; it caught many by surprise when the Oilers opted to re-sign him rather than trade him.
With NHL hockey on its way back, the rumours seem to have started again.

When Dumb and Dumber came out I must have watched it ten times. So many good scenes but the one I loved was where Lloyd says the line "so you're telling me there’s a chance!!" Classic. I think that every player that will still be on the Oklahoma City Barons when the NHL starts was thinking that when the end of the lockout was announced Sunday morning.
