Should Edmonton Oilers go nuclear to fix their lack of depth scoring?

  Should Edmonton Oilers go nuclear to fix their lack of depth scoring? If fans of the Edmonton Oilers know one thing, it’s that the team’s depth forwards aren’t scoring. How dire is the situation? Edmonton has eight wins in 12 games, so it’s not panic city. At the same time, the team has put up two stinker games out of the last three, games where aside from the team’s top attackers hardly anyone was getting anything done on offence. Simply put, Edmonton has a talent deficit. It needs to inject its bottom two lines and third defensive pairing with more speed and skill. Edmonton is starting to get out scored, and it’s been getting out chanced from the start of the year most games.

It won ' t happen ." Saquon Barkley takes ownership of his poor plays this season and dismisses the idea of sitting out for the rest of the season. Sitting Barkley over the final six games of the season in order to limit the toll on his body and ensure he's healthy for the future isn't something the Giants

Saquon Barkley won't be convinced that sitting out the remainder of the season to heal his injuries is the best option for him.

The star New York Giants running back underwent an X-ray for a shoulder injury following Sunday's loss to the New York Jets. Barkley tried to brush aside the ailment, even if it played a part in him recording just a single rushing yard in the game.

With the Giants 2-8 with six games left in a lost season, some would suggest it would be best for Barkley to heal up rather than take on more hits.

"The mindset of sitting me out and resting me for the rest of the season is beyond me. I do not agree with it. It won't happen," Barkley said Tuesday, according to ESPN's Jordan Raanan.

"I'm going to keep going until I can't go no more. That's the player I am and I'm going to do it for my teammates."

The Giants aren't considering sitting Barkley, either.

"Absolutely not," head coach Pat Shurmur said on Monday in regards to the idea of resting the 22-year-old.

Barkley, who missed three games earlier in the year with a high ankle sprain, won't use injuries as an excuse for his performance.

"What's not being myself? Yes, I do feel like myself," he said. "I would love to go for 100 yards every game. I would love to be doing the things I was doing last year. Trust me. I don't like the fact I was able to have one yard against a great team - respect to them - but I feel if you see me get into open space I was still making people miss."

Victory for trousers: Winnipeg's Grey Cup win means fan can wear pants again .
CALGARY — One of the first things Blue Bombers fan Chris Matthew will need to do after he finishes celebrating Winnipeg's Grey Cup win is shop for trousers. Matthew promised his friends in November 2001 that he would keep wearing shorts until the Bombers won a Canadian Football League championship. It didn't happen that year — they lost to Calgary — so he's been braving Manitoba's chill winters with half his legs uncovered for the last 18 years. That all changed on Sunday when Winnipeg beat the Hamilton Tiger-Cats 33-12.Matthew was in Calgary to cheer on his team and pulled on an old pair of grey camo sweat pants over his shorts after the win.
