Now that Connor’s back (and better), I’m not sure if I’m more concerned for the health status of the rest of the Oilers, or the health of the staff inside the walls of Nation HQ.
Connor McDavid is officially in the nest. He won’t play with the Bakersfield Condors, but he will get into a series of practices and game-day skates just as he did on Tuesday ahead of the Condors game against the Manitoba Moose.
After the Oilers held their annual skills competition, Connor McDavid revealed that he will be spending the all-star break practicing with the Condors. He won’t be playing the game he loves, just practicing.
Throw a couple more injuries onto the pile this week, surprise, surprise. I don’t even remember what it’s like to have a healthy team anymore – it hasn’t happened all season.

Our western conference preview stops in Calgary to look at the rebuilding Flames. They lost their leading goal scorer, Mike Cammalleri to New Jersey, and once again the biggest concern will be goal scoring.
