Morning, folks!

Weird technical difficulties prevented me from getting anything up yesterday, but we’re back in the saddle today so let’s get right to it.

I’ve gotta be honest, folks, it’s a tough morning in terms of drumming up conversation, but maybe these will get the people going:

  • How is it that three of the ‘People’s Top 10 Pizzas’ are Panago, Pizza 73, and East Side Marios?! EAST SIDE MARIOS?!
  • Oscar Klefbom will need to be moved to LTIR. As far as I’m aware, the Oilers stand to get the most cap benefit if they put him on LTIR after the season starts, but that would require a fair bit of cap gymnastics and might mean Ethan Bear goes unsigned through training camp. It might make the most sense for them to LTIR Klefbom prior to camp to get Bear’s deal done.
  • Mikko Koskinen will not win a Vezina.
  • Call me old fashioned, but I’d rather they just brought back the blue and whites they wore in 2015/16 with the orange they wore in 2015/16. I don’t need another white with orange shoulders. Bring back their best colorways. I mean look at this thing:
