It’s been a long off-season and I can’t wait to see what the healthy Oilers squad can do.

There’s a lot of cynicism online as to the inactivity of the Oilers GM, and to a certain extent I share some of their views (specifically when it comes to the Center position). But in the end, a lot of players are due for their chance to show the Oilers what they can do.

The only bass ackwards thing about it is that it seems they’ve been handed the job without even having to tryout.

Why have training camp if Pouliot and Brule are slotted in for those positions?

Competition is the only way to push players to perform.

We need an established checking center.
