Hemsky is one of my most respected Oilers. He knew what would happen to him but continually sacrificed to make the play. Was almost stabbed by a broken beer bottle attack back home one summer, still sports the scars. When the Edmonton media tried to write feel-good stories about the incident upon his return he refused, never speaking about it.

another guy zero people wanted to sign...

low risk roll of the dice, but unlikely to pay off as evidenced by zero interest league wide it seems.

One of the many glaring issues with Neal last year was that he was constantly behind the play. He could never find the right lanes or the right place to position himself at the right time to get a shot off. I'm having a hard time to imagine how he's all of a sudden going to be able to keep up with the fastest player in the league.

Neal is going to have to rely on McDavid to take a lap around the net in every single attack to even have time to position himself to recieve a pass. It's the exact problem that Lucic had when playing on McDavids wing, he couldn't get to the right place fast enough to be of any use.

Draisaitl is finding the spots and keeps up well with the play as he is a pretty good player himself, hence he's having success. Chiasson just goes straight to the net all the time and scored a lot of ugly goals that way last year. Neal does neither, in fact he was especially bad in front of the net last season, so it'll be interesting to see if he can find some way to be of any use at all on McDavids wing. My guess is no. Perhaps he can get something done with RNH, but that's one heck of a long shot.

Not to mention Neal couldn't shoot to save his life. Unless he gets his groove back, Connor will get pretty sick of feeding the sniper who can't get a shot off

Hard to put anything into a shot when you’re sucking wind through your mouth after skating 2 laps.

Calgary's new Central Library makes Time magazine's 100 Greatest Places list.
Edmonton's new library must have just missed?
As a matter of fact, Edmonton doesn't make the list at all.

Two locations in Canada. The Calgary Central Library and Canada's Wonderland (which opened the world's tallest vertical drop roller coaster this year).

Cool, thanks guys. Weird that they didn't put up more than one pic of each place when you click on them.

Also, looks like you get an introductory offer of 12 months of Time for $12. I may even do that, can't go wrong at $1 a month.

But wait ... there’s more. You’ll also get 200 free spam emails a day for the same low price of $1 a month.

Spam emails are the Edmonton of emails.
