An instant escape from reality may be exactly what the doctor has ordered right now for Edmonton Oilers. A pretty way to turn around in all the stars at the weekend and also next week if you ask me.
Fortunately, Edmonton retrieved Peter Chiarrel's era late on Tuesday night. So, the new midfielder Keith Gretzky has been charged with the return of this organization. For now at least.
It may be useful for some time on the beach, which is certain. You can only wonder what Connor McDavid actually thinks. The captain of the 22-year-old Oilers was extraordinary, but that's not really shocking. He is currently in line with career goals in goals (48), assists (73) and points (121) along with other categories of statistics. Despite all this noise this season, he will probably be back on the short list for the Hart Trophy. He's pretty good.
It is enough to dress McDavid every week when it comes to the Sportsnet Fantasy Hockey Pool. The only time you have to be cautious is when the Oilers has a light schedule. McDavid's four points are unjust, even in this world with 30 points.

I like that Edmonton will not bet his future for a possible short-term profit; smart way.
Now for your questions:
Rob Mitt – @bibbobolypse
What do you think of Oscar Clefbom? He is set to return from his post for a trauma with his finger during the week.
Not surprisingly, Oilers have fought hard without Klefbom in the squad (6-12-1). In 31 games, the 25-year-old was a half-point average (0.48). Pro-rated, this would put the SWEET in the line for his first 40-point campaign.
To answer your question, any routine McDavid or Leon Draisaitl exposure is great news for every player. I'm curious to see Clefboam being used by Ken Hitchcock, given that Darnell Nurse is an assailant while he was out of the squad.
Really, I think you can find better features than Klefbom's cable release. You just never know what to expect from the Oilers.

Dastin Brown or Wayne Simmonds?
A hard question. I bent down on Dustin Brown's side.
The former Kings captain proves that the resurgence last year was no accident. At the break the veteran has 12 goals and 29 points in 40 games. Besides, the extraordinary chemistry that he developed with Anes Koprit in time has not deviated much. This duo has been plentiful over the past two months.
When it comes to Simmons, it is very likely that he will be dealt with by rivals' fliers. This should be a precursor to its fantastic value. I'm curious to see who gets it. Nashville, Dallas and Colorado have a lot of meaning.
Simmons was struggling to find some level of consistency this season in Philadelphia. Another shot in the Stanley Cup should fire him. After all, he is in a negotiated season looking for the last big payday in his career.
Brown over Simmons.
Matthew Biro – @ Birdling83
Would you think Cory Perry was fantastic? What is the schedule for his potential return?
Stay Perry at once if you have the opportunity. It is important, however, to adjust your expectations. The 33-year-old recovered from a fairly serious knee injury, which cost him 51 games and a census. During training in the training camp the expectation was a five-month recovery process. This schedule would mean a potential return in the middle until the end of February, which is convenient enough around the deadline.
If the hard wing can come back to Ducks, he'll probably be on line with Ryan Getslaff. I think you can find some sneaky refusal to get perry.

Is it time to throw away Carter Hutton? (Potential substitutes: Kuemper, Howard, Koskinen, Anderson, Delia and Smith)
Let me point out that every goalkeeper has a rough section. Unfortunately for its owners, Hutton's free fall has spread since Buffalo's 10th victory.
Even with that I would definitely recommend playing for Hutton. There is only one way to go and that's up.
The numbers are not quite. At the end of his 12 starts the winner took only two victories, registering a pedestrian rather. The waiting week will help him.
Considering the list of replacement options, I will stay on Hutton and hope for the best. I still think swans have another hot show in them. Be smart.

How does Vincent Troucky return as Eugene Dadonov to the Cats?
In general, the return of Trocec is massive for panthers. It's unlikely, but we'll see if Florida has enough time to get back to the playoffs picture.
As for Dadonov, he is currently climbing on top with Alexander Barkov and red Frank Vatrano. This trio has been producing lately, so it's likely to stay together after the break.
Dadonov is currently on the same track as last year (28 goals, 27 assists, 65 points), maybe one touch more. It is as consistent as it comes. I love to own it.
Jason Eclanks – @RessealNinja
What to do with Evgeni Kuznetsov?
As Kuznetsov saw your twitter or something. The Russian foothold scored two assists in two matches before the break of all the stars.
Despite the recent struggles of Washington, I still support Kuznetsov's dossier with all my heart. He is a famous strong finisher, and it is imperative to remain a patient here. The capitals are long overdue.
Bleed The Blue and White – @ JaymeeKitch8
What do you think happens with Sergey Bobrovski? A good candidate for a low price?
As we approach the trading deadline on February 25, this may be the biggest situation that will follow. For some reason, my gut tells me it will trade for some reason. You get the feeling that things start to hit Columbus. This is certainly a difficult situation in which Blue Jackets General Manager Jarmo Kekalainen must join, especially with Columbus, firmly in the playoffs.
When it's okay, Bobrovsky is one of the best fantasy guards there. Yes, it is your "classic" "buy low" option right now, but I will continue with caution. This is an extremely unstable situation at the moment.
