This, that, and the other as the Oilers news slows to a trickle for the next few weeks and the playoffs march on.

Morning, folks.

Not really sure how to navigate these coming doldrums. Other fans are watching playoff games still, but I’m actively avoiding them because the hockey season ends when Edmonton’s ends for me. I don’t care to watch the teams who have figured it out. The whole conceit of playoff hockey, these manufactured overtimes and games in which the refs decide the game by not deciding the game, bothers me.

What I can offer this morning is that Dennis King joined Sunil for the latest episode of his podcast, and I’m looking forward to it. The last time Dennis was on it was like 90 minutes of pure gold, and my expectations are sky high going into the sequel. I’d recommend you check that one out for yourselves, too.

In the meantime, if you have some feature ideas you’d like to see between now and the offseason proper, let us know in the comments below! Otherwise, be safe, be well, and we’ll see you Monday.
