The Oilers finally dispatched the Canucks last night, winning 3-2 which really doesn't show how the Canucks were rolled in the first two periods and only scored late in the third when the Oilers started to dial it back and play heavy defense. The Oilers could have had several more goals if it weren't for Arturs Silovs doing all he can.

But then who likes goalies named Arturs?

So the conference finals will be Oilers and Stars in the west and Panthers and Rangers in the east. The games will start up on Wednesday.

Meanwhile Canada will play Czechia at the World Championships today. It's on TSN at 10:20 a.m.

The Athletic Media Company - Staff Editor, NHL (Remote)
About the Role The Athletic seeks a Staff Editor for its National Hockey League desk. The candidate will be heavily involved in day-to-day coverage of National Hockey League, including editing and publishing of content, writing breaking news, and collaborating with writers and editors. The ideal candidate will be self-starting and energetic, able to edit any kind of story, and willing to work nights and weekends. This role will be remote for candidates located in the United States or Canada.

I post this mostly because I think it interesting they add a salary quote in the post of "annual base salary range for this role is $55,000.00 - $70,000.00 USD." If you convert that to CAD at the official Bank of Canada rate published Friday of 1.3615, that's about $75,000 to $95,000, or converted to an hourly rate at the 40/50 standard it's a range in CAD of $37.44 to $47.65/hour, though it sounds like in-season you will work much more than 40 hours/week.

Is that a good rate for an editor who has to "work nights, weekends, and holidays, as needed"? I don't know as it's not my industry, but I would be curious if any of our readers who have some media experience could share what they think about that pay point, or why it has so much variance in it.
