Good Morning and happy Monday. There are only two cures for the Monday blues: Lasagna, and a weekend’s worth of spicy hot links. This weekend featured one of the most exciting off-ice occurrences possible in the NHL, a one-for-one trade involving two actual top of the roster type players. Luckily for Oilers fans, it didn’t involve any of our guys.
Here’s what we’ve got for you:

In other Oilers (offseason equivalent of) news, Jim Matheson speculates what kind of package the Oilers might be able to put together to land Erik Karlsson in a trade. (Edmonton Journal) In case you’re wondering, that link is about the defenceman from Ottawa, not the forward from the Swedish national junior team of a few years ago, with the same name.
Enjoy your day, and, as always, keep your stick on the ice.
