Morning, folks!

The NHL has been entertaining a variety of options in terms of resuming the season, with one such possibility involving playing games at neutral sites, like the arena complex in North Dakota.

Sportsnet created a short video highlighting the Oilers’ best moments of the now suspended season.

Want to feel old? It’s been a full decade since the debut of Oil Change.

In North Battleford, residents paid tribute to the late Colby Cave by lining the sides of Highway 16 with their cars yesterday as Cave’s family returned home.

Ken Holland’s job was made easier this season by the emergence — and legitimacy — of Ethan Bear and Caleb Jones.

A young man has started a petition for EA Sports to make Colby Cave the cover athlete for NHL 21. Click HERE for more information.

Connor McDavid remembers the night the Oilers won the lottery and the privilege to select him.

The NHL isn’t being told that resuming the season is not out of the question. I don’t know why, but I’m both disappointed and not at all surprised that the NHL is waiting for direction on this. There is no leadership here.

Speaking of drafts, Brian Burke recalled his combine interview with Nail Yakupov, calling it the worst of his life. I’ve never liked Brian Burke.
