More Oilers player reviews and previews, the impetus for signing Kailer Yamamoto, Jake DeBrusk (lol), and MORE! Happy weekend, everyone.

What do you call it when a guy who was on the cover of NHL 20, isn’t the best player in the league, and is only a couple of summers removed from a dicey case involving disorderly conduct gets on the NHL 22 cover?


Extremely dumb?


Typical NHL?

That’s about the extent of my outrage on this but, for me, it’s very typical NHL to get what should be an easy decision laughably wrong. I suppose it could be worse, though. They could have put Connor McDavid on the cover while actually using a picture of Andrew Ference.

Have a good weekend, everyone. Everyone except Ken Holland and Dave Tippett, of course.
