Morning, folks!

Well, we’re fully into this social distancing thing and, I’ve gotta tell ya, if it wasn’t for these links I might not know exactly what day it is. Consider it my public contribution to an increasingly private world.

So what’s the haps today? Well, over the weekend the Edmonton Oilers signed their second-round pick from the 2019-20 draft, Raphael Lavoie, to a 3-year ELC.

If the season doesn’t resume, what might that mean for the conditional draft pick included in the James Neal / Milan Lucic swap?

Ken Holland spoke to the Edmonton Sun about his scouting staff trying to stay busy before the NHL Draft, which as of right now is still scheduled to kick off in June. Of course, that’s likely to change, but until it’s important that his people keep their eyes open just in case.

Lowetide dove into the Bakersfield Condors, specifically the seasons of Evan Bouchard, Ryan McLeod, Dmitri Samorukov, and Kirill Maksimov.

Somehow, Peter Chiarelli’s words are still being analyzed.

Looking back at Connor McDavid’s first playoff goal from a unique angle.

A look at Alex Chiasson’s contribution to this year’s Edmonton Oilers team.

It’s a mouthful, but it’s a Monday. Don’t hesitate to pace yourself, I imagine the rest of the week to be a little slower, news-wise. Get yourselves read up, wash your hands and faces and, above all, if you’d like us to do any springboard or platform diving into a specific player, subject, tactic, or what have you: please do let us know in the comments.

Stay safe out there.
