Magnus Paajarvi is basking in the warmth of Arizona with the rest of the Edmonton Oilers, but the big Swede's hands might as well be back here, where the deep freeze has busloads of brass monkeys heading south as fast as they can get out of town.

Sweet sassy mo-lassy. That right there is what you call a win.

Despite their best performance in a week, the Oilers couldn't hold on to a 3-0 lead and lost to Phoenix on Friday. Tonight they face a Ducks team that has lost four in a row, two in OT, so one losing streak will come to an end. The Ducks won all four meetings last season and outscored the Oilers 20-9.

I shudder to think what the Edmonton Oilers defence would look like without Ryan Whitney. Then again, the Anaheim Ducks would have an uglier back end than Terry Jones trundling up the press box stairs without Lubomir Visnovsky.

Some goals are easier than others. For NHL scouts, delivering multiple players of exceptional quality from one draft is something that may come along once or twice in a career. It's way too early to even be discussing it, but the Edmonton Oilers 2010 draft group keeps doing things to get noticed. It really has been an exceptional start to the season for the top 5 selections. Stand back, we don't know how big this thing is going to get in the next 5 years.
