Well, folks, this is new.

Every other division in the ‘new’ NHL has been dealt at least one proper postponement and now, it seems, its the North Division’s turn. Edmonton’s three-game set against Montreal has been entirely postponed, meaning the Oilers won’t be in action again until Saturday night in Toronto.

So, that’s cool.

The Oilers went from ‘should be exhausted’ to ‘could be rusty’, going from a packed week to a pretty leisurely one in a matter of moments. Hopefully they get in a hard practice or two in the meantime to stay sharp, they’ve been cruising and you’d hate to see a few days off be a cause for complacency.

Meanwhile we’ll just keep trying to figure out what to do with our hands.


The third episode of our podcast dropped this afternoon. Join Preston, Shona and Corey once again as they go over topics like: the Oilers week that was, Puljujarvi’s general adorability, and possible extensions for some pending UFAs like Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Adam Larsson.
