Oilers quick shots

- some fast notes and comments #Oilers #NHL #McDavid

- At the development camp, Darnell Nurse is beating up on everyone and everyone went nuts when McDavid stepped onto the ice.  See here:

- The players were at NAIT the other day learning how to cook. Drats likes spinach. Hugg ugg ugg.

- Connor McDavid signed a 3 year entry-level contract. It's now official official.  He has said many times he is thrilled to be in Edmonton and wants to play here for the rest of his life.  So to all those who wasted their breath saying he wouldn't, go shove a bag of pucks in your mouth you jealous jerks.

- He is apparently staying at Ryan Smyth's home for now. Sure beats when Hall and Ebs stayed in a hotel to start camp.  As I said, Smytty is the original Oilers Jesus, so in keeping with this Christian historical perspective, that makes McDavid St. Peter?

- Speaking of Peter, I saw Peter Chiarelli walk out of Earl's on Jasper Ave yesterday around 6pm. I think I was the only one who noticed.  Ironic since just before that I was checking to see if he signed Cody Franson or something.

- Assistant coach of the rafters, Rocky Thompson is now the head coach of the Windsor Spitfires, Hall's old team.

- I had a dream that the Community Rink at the new arena was open and had a sunroof that opened up.

- Rangers forward Marty St. Louis announced his retirement in Edmonton yesterday as he coaches his son's team at the Brick Invitational.  He looked relieved and happy.  What a career and good guy.

- I'll be at the development camp Saturday morning or more likely at the Billy Moore's Cup on Monday to watch this supposed McDavid character, but more so, Nurse and Draisaitl.
