And the winner is…

And the winner is…

I’ve got to admit I had difficulty working up much interest in Sunday night’s Emmy Awards, and that’s not intended as any kind of insult toward Schitt’s Creek, the brilliant Canadian comedy that dominated the show. I’m just not big on awards shows. Don’t love them. Don’t hate them.

NHL Rumors: Edmonton Oilers – First-Round Pick, Koivu, Puljujarvi, Ekman-Larsson, Goaltending and a Third-Line Centerman

Oilers first-round pick, Koivu, Puljujarvi and Ekman-Larsson Kurt Leavins of the Edmonton Journal: It’s unlikely that the Edmonton Oilers would straight-up trade their No. 14 puck unless they get another first-round pick in the deal. Trades will likely have to involve salary going both ways. Believe the Oilers could probably be able to get a first-round pick for one of the left-handed defensemen. Would the Oilers be interested in Mikko Koivu to help bring back/along Jesse Puljujarvi? Re-signi
