Looking at Edmonton’s depth forward prospects, remembering NHL 94, Buffalo Sabres clean house, the infamous 1990 Draft, Carl Soderberg’s UFA profile, feds open to Canadian NHL hub, and MORE!

Morning, folks!

Jeff takes us back in time as part of SBN’s Video Review week with a look back at NHL 94.

Bruce McCurdy profiled the Oilers lesser known forward prospects and their 2019-20 seasons so far.

The Buffalo Sabres released GM Jason Botterill, their AHL coaching staff, and roughly half of their scouting staff yesterday. What’s next?

Oilers captain Connor McDavid already holds the record for the most expensive modern-day hockey card, with an autographed game patch card fetching over $55,000 USD at auction. Now, another card in the same series (number 97/99 in fact) might fetch twice that.

The 1990 NHL Draft featured first-round talent like Owen Nolan (1 OV), Jaromir Jagr (5 OV), and Martin Brodeur (20 OV), with HHOFer Sergei Zubov falling to the fifth round and Robert Lang and Peter Bondra falling to the seventh and eighth respectively. The Oilers had 11 picks that year, and not one of them played in the NHL.

Carl Soderberg’s name might not fill you with excitement, but The Athletic’s Young Willis thinks he might be an intriguing player for the Oilers this summer.

The Canadian Federal Government has expressed interest in working with the NHL if the league decides on a Canadian city to be an NHL hub.
