Morning, folks!

With dates set and the CBA extended, it’s time to start projecting playoff lines, pairings, and the starting goaltender for the qualifying round and beyond.

Ethan Bear was a revelation last season, but he remains without a contract today. With the cap staying flat, signing him to a contract with some term has become a trickier proposition.

Jesse Puljujarvi’s comparables so far hint toward a possible future with the Edmonton Oilers.

Olivier Rodrigue might be the Oilers best goaltending prospect right now.

Jujhar Khaira and Andreas Athanasiou joined the Oilers’ Phase 2 bubble yesterday.

Looking at every Edmonton Oilers prospect, ranked by how close they are to the NHL.
