So Adam Oates didn’t play with Edmonton last night, as they tied Columbus 3-3.
It seems like they signed Oates ages ago. It’s only been like a week or so, though.
Coach Craig MacTavish says he should play soon, though. At least within the next four games.
The big hold-up is getting Oates in game form. He says his stamina still isn’t there.
Once he’s back in shape, he’ll be a real impact player for the Oilers, though. His experience will help the team and teach the young team at the same time.
If Oates ever actually starts playing in games.
