It’s still absolutely ridiculous that Duncan Keith’s missing the first week of camp. It still reflects poorly on his leadership. Josh Archibald is almost certainly the Oiler who isn’t vaccinated, and Mike Smith apparently had to be convinced. Don’t forget, news broke yesterday that Alex Stalock is likely done for the sea

Penalty kill options up front

Something to watch for this upcoming season is how the Oilers coaching staff assembles the penalty killing units. As I wrote a couple weeks back, the Oilers lost some key defensemen with Larsson and Bear now skating with other teams and are taking a risk if they’re expecting Keith and Ceci to take on those minutes and have success. Things are just as interesting up front. Last season, nine forwards played at least ten minutes short-handed for the Oilers, with Archibald, Nugent-Hopkins, Kha
