Three. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins is a seriously underrated and underappreciated player.

The Oilers have had 2934087 1st overall picks on their roster in the last 14 years. Okay, that might be a slight exaggeration on my part, but that's how it feels.


Funny you should ask...

Deadspin is a hollow echo of its former self, but this is as fun and relentlessly scathing as it gets.

Kinda shocked they haven't traded him for dumb character guys yet, but good on em, I suppose.

What's up in Alberta? Why is every early playoff exit met with a call for truculence and pugnacity? If that's the case then they should have kept Lucic.....how about better D and goaltending!

I follow a number of Canadian sportswriters, analytics experts, and even a few journalists and political pundits. Unless I read a lot of what they’re saying wrong, Alberta is their version of Texas. Very conservative (and their Premier, Jason Kenney, has no friends among the people I follow). It might be a bit of a leap, but there’s plenty of overlap between sports fans who embrace old-school ideals and conservatives who embrace old-school ideas.

There are huge exceptions of course. Brian Burke (who of course is American and not from Alberta, so this might be a bad example) is as old-school and brazenly disdainful of things like analytics as you can get in sports, yet he’s refreshingly progressive with his politics.

Oilers bring RW Adam Cracknell back from China on a juiced up two-way contract. He's old, but I thought he deserved a shot in Montreal the year he lit up Laval. But I get it, he's had enough chances to, err, crack the lineup.

Back just in time to be a centerpiece expansion pickup for the Kraknel. I mean, Kraken.

Hopefully no long-term effects for Connor. McCovid? Too easy?

Like the Oil statement that he's in voluntary self-quarantine. Voluntary? Ok there. You get a positive diagnosis, you stay the fuck home.

I thought of it but didn't write it. So yes, too easy. :lol:

Oilers don't qualify Anathasiou after doling out 2 2nds for him. Better than doubling down on a mistake, I suppose.

They also got Puljujarvi back for 2 years at a nice contract.

So far I don't quite understand what Ken Holland is doing. But he's a far smarter man than I so, I guess we'll see...
