Good morning, hope everyone is awake.
Luke Fox has his power rankings and we’re basically at the bottom. These rankings are obviously based on recent results so they should be just as easy to climb as they were to descend. (Sportsnet)
Elliotte Friedman’s 31 thoughts are in. Whatever sportsnet is paying the man, it’s not enough. He is the Connor McDavid of all hockey media. (Sportsnet)
I’ve heard a lot of people asking about how we’re going to replace Jordan Eberle this year. Lowetide runs some numbers and comes up with an optimistic answer. Take a look. (Lowetide)
Leon Draisaitl and Drake Caggiula will be going on the upcoming road trip. Jeff has the details. Personally I’m looking forward to Draisaitl helping the Oilers win and then the main-stream media pumping out “Is Draisaitl more important to the Oilers than McDavid?” click baits. Itt’l be fun, trust me. (Copper&Blue)
In our weekly video, we get an enraged Bruce Boudreau swearing at his Washington Capitals team during a losing streak. The Caps lost 10 straight on a streak that almost no one remembers because they were a very good team that won their division and made the playoffs easily. Let’s keep that in mind for obvious reasons.
That’s all for now. The Oilers are taking on the Chicago Blackhawks tonight and as always, we’ll have full coverage.
