Is Mike Babcock the NHL's best bench boss?; what will it take for the Oilers to make the playoffs?; and more.
After a little break, we’re back taking your questions. Thanks to those who sent one (or more) in. Adam, what players do you think the Oilers must acquire or trade to become a playoff team again? Kyle Pazi, Edmonton Kyle, I don’t think you can point to one or two players and say they are the only thing Edmonton needs to break their current cycle and wind up in the playoffs.

Is Eric Lindros Hall of Fame material?; Why hasn't a Russian billionaire bought the Coyotes?; And more.
It’s Friday, it’s mailbag, it’s me. Thanks as always to everyone who took a moment to submit a question.
