Morning, folks. Happy over the hump day.

Edmonton takes to the ice tonight at Rogers Place, with the Vancouver Canucks next in line to take a beating.

With this being the second-to-last game in Edmonton’s preseason schedule, the calibre of both lineups is anyone’s guess. You could argue for dressing an opening night roster, but there are still cuts to be made and both teams are running out of runway in terms of gathering the information necessary to make them. Stay tuned.


It wouldn’t be a CB Podcast episode without the crew raining praise down on Jesse Puljujarvi!

Preston & Shona break down a few intriguing storylines surround Edmonton’s preseason to date including a look at Jesse Puljujarvi’s and Brendan Perlini’s fantastic showings as well as some less than fantastic showings from Kassian and Turris.

They also ponder whether there could be some changes inside the crease as the year goes on and give their ideal Oiler rosters for opening night!
