Kellen Jones and the Quinnipiac Bobcats Beat Asiago, 7-0

Kellen Jones scored a brilliant goal when he found himself on a breakaway. Skating down the right wing, Jones pulled the back to his left before going to the backhand and banging the puck off the crossbar to give the Bobcats a 6-0 lead.

Whitney Among Top 25 Remaining Free Agents??

There's little doubt he will aim to prove Oilers brass wrong next season with whichever club is willing to give him a chance.

The passage followed the intro:

Whitney has had a tough time since suffering an ankle injury just after Christmas in 2010, and he was either a third-pairing defenseman or a scratch often in 2012-13.

NHL.com has Ryan Whitney listed among their top 25 remaining free agents. East coast sports writers obviously didn't stay up to watch any games last season.

Daniil Zharkov's KHL Debut

"I have to play against the best players in the world. I will make every effort to earn the trust of the coach, my teammates and the fans."

Daniil Zharkov on his debut season in the KHL. Zharkov was the fan's choice for the Kristians Pelss award, but needs a strong season to get back on a path to NHL employment.

The Oilers After 39 Games

It’s a four point improvement, but in terms of wins and losses the Oilers are actually in the exact same position as they were one season ago; the difference is entirely the result of four losses taking place after regulation rather than in 60 minutes. The Oilers slumped in the last half of 2011-12, while in 2013 there is no last half of the season to slump in. Ultimately, though, they’re at a pretty comparable place to where they were a year ago.

Henrik Sedin’s +24 is the most registered against the Oilers this year — he was on the ice for 34 shots for, and 10 against. The rest of the roster could have been playing dungeons and dragons, considering how effective that line was.

After scoring the tying goal, Yakupov refused to embrace any of his four teammates, instead soaking up the limelight himself while showboating and sliding down the ice like the second coming of Theo Fleury. He's a heck of a talent, but not much of a teammate.

That's a slightly modified quotation from Eric Francis' famous 2012 mittenstringery of the year nominated article. I wonder if anyone in the media will complain about his celebration... http://slam.canoe.ca/Slam/Hockey/Junior/WorldJunior/2012/01/04/19197661.html

With it looking like there is no hockey for the foreseeable future how about Copper N Blue does a top 25 Oilers of all time list? To make it more interesting, do this list as if it was 2027, so that Hall/Eberle/Yak/RNH have all finished their careers(meaning you have to predict what kind of career they will have). Do it in the format of the top 25 under 25, that should keep us busy for the next month.

Under Alberta law, a mediator must be appointed before an employer can legally lock out its employees. The NHLPA contends the league showed no willingness to work with the mediator it was assigned by the province on Aug. 21.

The NHLPA attempts to prevent the Oilers, Flames and Habs from being locked out.
