Morning, folks!

We’re getting to that point in the suspended season where the Oilers news has slowed down to a trickle. It’s still coming, but, slower, and there’s less of it. But we press on.

Oilers GM Ken Holland sat down with The Athletic to talk about his time as a night man at a dairy factory, among other things.

The NHL’s leading scorer, Leon Draisaitl, sat down (virtually) with Darren Dreger to talk trophies.

Yesterday, marked the three-year anniversary of noted shitheel Ryan Kesler interfering with Cam Talbot’s pad in Anaheim. What a pile of used needles.

With nothing but time to think about this and that, might it be a good opportunity for the NHL to rework its Salary Cap?

I told ya. It’s brief today.
