Good morning, folks.

Unfortunately, the biggest story even tangentially related to the Edmonton Oilers this morning is courtesy the Detroit Free Press, who have an update on former first overall pick of 1986 Joe Murphy.

Ken Holland sat down with TSN’s Tessa Bonhomme to chat chicken a few days back. Scroll down for the video below.

Lowetide, Gord bless him, published something yesterday.

The Journal and Sun still exist. Maybe they have some stories? One day.

Otherwise, the good stories in the Oily City are few and far between as August marches on.

And on.

And on.

In other news, our annual Top 25 Under 25 series gets going later this afternoon. Check back shortly after 1pm MST to see the results of our Fan Vote. Tomorrow, we’ll have our ‘just missed’ list - a look at the players we had 30-25. Stay tuned!
