    That was true for so many years...until a few years ago.

    There, but for a lucky draft pick a couple of years ago, go the Oilers.

    On the Oiler-related front:

    Kevin Lowe and Ken Holland are the newest members of the Hockey Hall of Fame. They go in with Jerome Iginla, Doug Wilson, Marian Hossa, and Kim St. Pierre.

    Congrats to them all.

    Team placeholder wins the draft lottery and now the 8 losers of the qualifying round will have 12.5% chances of drafting Alexis Lafreniere.

    Wow.

    Will be a wonderful consolation prize for any of those teams.

    I dunno. With the Covid shatshow in the States, I think any restart will eventually face a stop again, especially once a team gets it.

    Yeah, if half a team needs to quarantine for 2 weeks, that's the length of an entire playoff series.

    If the league is smart, they start looking at their strategies for the 20-21 season and write this one off.

    Ultimately this thing either comes to Canada solely or it gets shutdown along the way...

    Yeah Vegas really f*cked themselves over.
    The fact that they can take advantage of the exchange rate probably is better for the clubs anyway and we could sure use the multiplier effects of that money coming into YEG.

    Do Edmonton players have to stay in the hotel? Or can they go home?

    I think EVERYONE has to stay in the hotel. Although there were initial rumors that host teams would not play in their city so as not to confer an advantage (i.e. west teams would play in the east hub and vice versa), but given the changes happen to the plan almost by the minute, I think that plan got doused a while ago.

    I think a lot of the advantage is gone if they have to stay in the hotel. I think it is an advantage if they always get their home dressing room.

    Speaking of rebranding, the launch of Seattle's new NHL team looks to be a hit. I think Seattle Kraken was an excellent choice.

    So you can't go wrong naming a team after something fictitious. Like an Eskimoose?

    It's pretty awesome. I thought that with a name like that the logo might be more badass. But it is still quite well done.
