The Edmonton Oilers are still in the playoff race as we approach Christmas, and that means we could see an active trade deadline. Peter Chiarelli could be selling off veterans, adding expiring contracts in specific areas, or making deals to bring in help for now and the future—ala Patrick Maroon. A good place to start?

Taylor Beck was recalled by the Edmonton Oilers this afternoon, the AHL's leading scorer getting another chance in the NHL. He is a big winger with skill and may get a real shot to show the Oilers what he can do. A team looking for a spark may get one from their minor league team—and that is how things are supposed to work. Photo by Mark Williams, all rights reserved.

Taylor Beck is scoring at a fantastic rate in Bakersfield these days—six points in three games this week. Anton Lander's California trip may be short based on his impressive offense since being sent down. Both men were leaders of another strong week for Oilers prospects across the worldwide prospect map. Let's have a look. Photo by Mark Williams, all rights reserved.

After spending months (!!!!) in first place, or close, the Edmonton Oilers are in a five-team race for three or four positions. For the diehard fan, a playoff race was the goal, but are you ready for a four-month playoff chase? This could be the stuff of legends.

There is a little break here in the next week for the Edmonton Oilers. The club plays tomorrow, and then Tuesday, before having several days before their next game Saturday. There is a small window of opportunity to tweak the roster, and based on usage by the coach, I think goal is a position of interest. Photo by Mark Williams, all rights reserved.
