Morning, folks!

Long time, no links! Yours truly was on vacation and the gruelling travel day back meant catching up on sleep for the remainder of last week. But we’re back, and the links are back with me!

I’ll keep it short and sweet today, but suffice it to say I missed a lot. The Oilers made moves in what turned out to be the most exciting trade deadline round these parts it some time. The injury bug has more personally impacted my life than the coronavirus. Mike Smith is really proving me wrong of late. Leon Draisaitl’s nuts are goddamn gigantic. You know. You were there.

Edmonton hit the road yesterday en route to Nashville for a big game against the Predators tonight. Lineup information has yet to be released but don’t be surprised if the team sheet differs some from their win against Winnipeg.

Come back around for our typical GAMEDAY coverage with our PREVIEW and GAME THREAD to be released later today.

Otherwise? Good to be back. Let’s get that bread.
