Because it’s the […]

Sekera nears return, and that’s big for the Oilers
nhlrealtalk.com

The Edmonton Oilers gambled that young defensemen could stem the tide while Andrej Sekera healed up from a torn ACL, and many would argue that management made the wrong decision in placing that bet in 2017-18.
