Team Canada plays the Americans today in the latest battle with our friends to the south. The World Juniors have a special place in the hearts of this nation, partly because it's a preview of coming attractions (see photo). Edmonton Oiler fans have learned to pay special attention to the World Juniors over the years. It's a chance to see future Oilers and has been from the beginning.

I was glad when the Oilers brought Colin Fraser in. It was an acquisition that made sense on a few different levels. I’ll also be happy when they send him on down the line, something they should do at this year’s trade deadline if at all possible.

Colin McDonald looks like a "late bloomer." Drafted in 2003, he's now 26 years old and technically no longer Oiler property (he is signed to an AHL contract). Why bother talking about him? McDonald is tied for 2nd in AHL goal-scoring this season. He's on pace for 40, and headlines an exceptional group of Oilers prospects who are having impact seasons.

The Oilers lost a one-sided contest by a single goal, but much more importantly they lost Jordan Eberle midway through the contest to an ankle injury.

Back on December 5, the Oilers were turning some heads thanks to a nine game run in which they recorded six victories and 13 points. That run had given them a little bit of traction in the standings; they had climbed out of sole possession of 15th (tying Calgary) and sat just five points out of the playoffs.
More than 50% of Oilers Nation voted that the Oilers would go 0.500 or better over their next 20 games. Halfway through that stretch, how have they been?
