I have two thoughts on this.

1) Officials do oft swallow their whistles when it comes to infractions against McDavid. It began in earnest two seasons ago, and he (and Oilers nation) are getting sick of it. A penalty is a penalty, and skilled players (and their teams) shouldn’t be punished by the officials because of said skill. Call the (frank)ing infractions.

2) “Unintentional hit to the head?” Bullpoop. I was there and I had pretty damn good view of the entire sequence. The hit and resulting contact with Leddy’s head was intentional. McDavid eased up some when he saw that he was gonna get Leddy in the noggin, but he sure as (frank) didn’t avoid it.
2 games is too little IMO. Personally, I’d rather if any intentional head contact was a mandatory 5 game suspension, regardless of whether it’s a first offence or not. McDavid got off easy, and Oilers media need to take off their homer glasses and pull the pity dicks outa their mouths.

Ho-Sang 4G-5A-9Pts in last three games. I realize no one can explain this kid, but I sure as (frank) cant either. To me it's almost like he half asses it when he gets sent down instead of working his ass off to get brought back up. There is no question he'd be up with numbers like this (or even a third the pts). Not sure where this is coming from, but we sure could use a right winger right about now...

I’d be all for moving bailey for the right piece but from gm perspective he is great contract for his production. Especially is a salary cap world.

My vote is to move Nelson. Having his contract year and we know what this guy will do when he gets his money. Move Nelson , a prospect and a 1st and land Ryan getzlaf. Then we are in business

Just when you totally want to write JHS off, figures he puts up these numbers. No idea if we will see if as an Islander again or if someone wants to trade for him?

Good thing you aren't an official, because you swallow a hell of a lot more than just whistles.

No. No he is not. I couldn’t be convinced to TAKE him for a 3rd.

Ek has us not in on Stone, but in on Dzingel (his nickname must be berries, no?). So I guess there's still hope for Stone

EK now has Dzingel and Tampa. They better not make another big splash.
