    Although Brent Burns would have been nice in Edmonton I didn’t think it was ever going to be a fit due to age and contract and cap restraints . That’s a whopper of a contract and I’d be a little worried for about the last three years but he is an absolute stud right now playing at the top of his game and almost no D I’d rather have.

    By the halfway point of the season McDavid will pull away from the pack proving to be the best player in the league. It will be him and Price for the Hart. Talbot has mostly played awesome. Lucic is back on pace after a 4 point night and Edmonton’s depth at forward , size and their defense is a key to why they are first in their division.
    Oh ya and how’s that Russell doing!! Analytics my a$$!!
