Morning, folks. Friday’s upon us, so let’s keep it y-front and get right to it.

Just keep this kind of stuff in mind whenever someone says it’s the fans’ fault that players don’t want to come here. That it’s the fans’ fault for having the audacity to prefer the Oilers be a few notches above total shit year after year, and that it’s definitely not these nationally platformed media men with HHOF credentials pulling this kind of shit in pressers.

Before you go, check out Sunil’s latest as he tries to identify the best candidates for roles in what will be a revamped Oilers PK group in 2021-22.

We’re heading into #Top5 territory in this year’s Top 25 Under 25. Stay tuned through the weekend as, well frankly, we’re running out of time and need to run them through the weekend.

See you Monday.
