Morning, folks!

Another week in the books, and what a busy week it was! Oilers rumors popped up every day, we got word of Oscar Klefbom’s precarious future, we were reminded that prominent players still don’t want to waive their no-trade protections to come to Edmonton, our favorite little middle schooler is inching closer to a long-term extension, Jesse Puljujarvi’s rights were traded, we’re a less than a week from the NHL draft, IT’S ALL HAPPENING!

Or, it’s rumored to be happening, or something like that.

Anyway, it’ll be worth your time to pay attention to all things Edmonton Oilers over the next couple of days. Ken Holland’s got some extremely difficult decisions to make — and that was before losing his 1D long-term — and it could honestly go either way. Godspeed, little doodles.
