The Oilers have nothing sweet to add.

Unless it's an unused draft pick.

Everything else has Oiler stink on 'em.
Did ... did David Staples just end his tweet with "I Edmonton Journal"?

No, the 'I' is a pipe/vertical bar. It's on most QWERTY keyboards sharing the same key as the backslash.

Just heard Holland on TSN, says they need to add a goaltender and a top 6 forward. Guess he hasn't gotten as far as looking at that bottom 6 or that defence. Woof.

Well, I guess he's not wrong, just stopped a tad short. Maybe it's like one of those Christmas calendars where he names one desperately needed change every day until the season starts.

Well with the Oilers it's just like pick a hole to try to fill. There are so many to choose from.

"Top six" is more enticing to the fans and the neanderthal newspaper guys, so he gets brownie points for added offseason excitement where they get to speculate, even though realistically they don't have the chips to add a top 6 player outside of dealing one of their top 3 forwards or upcoming 1st rounder which he won't.

Their roster is 85-90% comprised of players that no one is actively seeking aside from the purpose of reaching the cap floor. Even though they will inevitably speculate that 2-3 fringe NHLers from their "depth" somehow equates to a good player coming back (and call it generous from the Oilers standpoint).

It also wouldn't' surprise me if Holland and his new bosses have deduced an NHL Domination plan that involves a powerhouse top-6 and a legendary goalie.

Adding depth, fixing defence, getting their top players help and finding someone to save pucks while near the cap already sounds like mission impossible - and we've all been curious as to how they're going to pull it off. Maybe, they don't plan on pulling off what you assume they'd be after at all.



When propaganda fills the seats, those only interested in money are on-board with any "plays with McDavid" that will sell a ticket; and when Lowe and Co. are running the show "score lots, ignore results and hope for a surprise in the playoffs" has been the marching orders from the Champions for a while now anyway... and they don't seem too worried that this hasn't worked out yet. Just haven't found the right mix of Hall of Famers quite yet and not enough people properly executing on their flawless vision. McDavid scores 8 and the goalie plays lights out and this all works perfectly. Anything less is the players fault.


Stupid Reider.

It's almost time for our annual check-in on how much Katz's son has grown over the last year. I think the kid might actually be older than some of the players they'll be drafting this year.

Matheson was talking about bringing Talbot back.

I can't imagine Talbot wants to go back to Edmonton.

Thoughts and prayers for Jim

Craig Morgan
@craigsmorgan
Per source, former Coyotes assistant coach Jim Playfair has agreed to a deal to join Dave Tippett’s staff as an assistant in Edmonton and coach the defense. Deal should be announced Thursday.

Gulutzan AND Playfair?

What's Bob Hartley up to these days? May as well go for the trifecta.

So now, I assume, the Oilers have 6 Norris trophy winners?
