When the Edmonton Oilers drafted Mitch Moroz with the 32nd overall pick this summer, they were reaching. They took a guy with just 25 points in the WHL as an 18-year old (the next WHL forward selected, Lukas Sutter, had more goals than Moroz had points).
For the pick to work out, Moroz needed to take the next step, and fast. He’s done the opposite so far this season; he’s standing still.

Privyet, homies! Steve Dangle again with Andrey Osadchenko doing highlights showing today's KHL action. Lots of guys you know playing and having an impact - Evgeni Malkin, Nikolai Kulemin, Mikhail Grabovski, Nail Yakupov, Ilya Kovalchuk, Karri Ramo, and more.

In all the excitement over the #1 overall picks every summer, we may have lost sight of something: a few of the Oiler draft picks who turned pro in the last few years will be RFA next summer.

1. OMG! Two games, no points! Jordan Eberle and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins have no points through the Oklahoma City Barons’ first two games… but it’s two games. The only people who have serious concerns about this are the folks who expected the young stars to cut through the AHL like a hot knife through butter and start racking up five-point games out of the gate. The AHL is a good league, and Nugent-Hopkins and Eberle didn’t get into any pre-season action. They’ll be fine.

What a glorious Monday. The Yankees are down 0-2, the Dolphins are tied for 1st in the AFC East, there is lots of hockey to watch and if you live in Oklahoma your hockey team will be getting better very soon.
