I really think the Edmonton Oilers are going to demolish everyone this season. It's a star league and they have the biggest star of all. He could lead the Art Ross race by 30 points.


Has there ever been a player so good that he can overcome an incompetent front office? Even Sid the now-30-year-old Kid can't say that.

Interesting that Kailer Yamamoto is on the opening night roster while Jesse Puljujärvi is not. I also don't expect Ryan Nugent-Hopkins to be in Edmonton next season, though I'd be mildly surprised if he were dealt before the deadline.

Oilers make a deal to try and get some scoring depth on the right side (or any side for that matter): Mike Cammalleri heads to Edmonton in exchange for Jussi Jokinen.

If this trade had happened around 7 years ago it would be a bigger deal.

The really ominous thing is that the Oilers look poised to double down on The Boys on the Bus.

Coffey's in. Gretzky's in. Other Gretzky's in. Lowe and MacTavish never left. It's like they're going to learn all the wrong lessons from their foray outside the organization.

Watched the tail end of the Vegas/Edmonton game last night, a game the Oilers were out of pretty much the whole night. It's astounding to me how...invisible...Connor McDavid is right now. There's NO ONE on the back end even remotely dangerous with the puck or capable of really manning a breakout scheme, and McDavid is oftentimes sailing forward solo when the puck actually DOES land on his stick because no one can keep up with him. He's actually quite easy to neutralize if all you have to do is focus your efforts on making sure he never gets the puck. Just sad to watch.

I can imagine McD is pretty upset about how things have gone down this season. Last spring they looked like Cup contenders and it's all gone sideaways. I feel like this happened to Sid too, where his play sagged when the coach/team wasn't right.
