Morning, folks!

Lowetide asks: what if Tyler Benson and Cooper Marody can’t catch (and supplant) Joakim Nygard?

With the NHL having missed over a month’s worth of Hockey Related Revenue — and with next year’s start date still somewhat tentative at this point — what will happen to the salary cap? To player contracts? To ticket prices?

Cam Tait profiled Colby Cave, as the hockey world — and the Oilers family — continues to mourn his tragic passing.

In Friedman’s latest 31 Thoughts he touches on how teams are preparing for the draft in these unprecedented times.

Ron MacLean’s got a new show, In Conversation, and he sat down with Louie and Jake DeBrusk to talk about a myriad of things, including Colby Cave.

Former Oilers draft pick Tyler Wright set to lead his first draft as Oilers Director of Amateur Scouting.

Jonathan Willis remembered the Oilers’ contentious introduction to the NHL, and how the incumbent Canadian teams — Montreal, Toronto, and Vancouver — wanted to keep them out.

The USA’s highest-profile epidemiologist, Dr. Anthony Fauci, suggested that summer leagues could return if they took significant steps to mitigate COVID-19 transmission.

We know it’s a weird time. We’re pulling for you. Stay home, stay safe, and we’ll see you on the other side.
