The Morning Constitutional - March 26, 2013

A NEW SEGMENT?

Looks like it.

Instead of plying you with links exclusively over the weekend, we’re going to try and ply you with some daily links to satiate your puck cravings.  Enjoy them over breakfast, or anytime after breakfast.   It’s your cabana boat.

Edmonton Journal (Jim Matheson) : Edmonton Oilers Will Likely Make Their Pitch For Dan DeKeyser Likely Wednesday In Toronto – The Oilers appear to be hell-bent on acquiring 23 year old free agent college defenceman Dan DeKeyser, and they’ll pull out Justin Schultz and company to do their bidding this Wednesday.

Predlines (Jason Kirk)  Nashville Predators 3, Edmonton Oilers 2 – “Pekka Rinne stopped 23 of 25 shots tonight. Edmonton beat him once on the power play and once on a puck floated into the zone that bounced in off Shawn Horcoff’s skate. If that’s all that’s beating him, he’s looking like the Pekka Nashville fans know and love.”

Oilers Acumen : The Mess On Defence –  Who’s leaving come deadline day?  And why is that left side thinner than shaved lunch meat?

Copper and Blue (Derek Zona) – Who is better than Ryan Jones?  – Can the Oilers make an upgrade on Ryan Jones for the right price?

MC79:  Using Yak – No secret the Oilers have trouble scoring goals.  Why is Yakupov playing less in the third?
