I've always had a soft spot in my hard, old heart for Ryan Smyth, so I smiled today when the Edmonton Oilers announced he was the team's nominee for the 2014 Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy.

The Oilers wrap up their road schedule tonight in Phoenix. Only Buffalo has won fewer road games, 8, than the Oilers' 12. Florida's final five games are all at home, and if the Oilers do win tonight they will tie the Panthers with 13 road wins.
Regardless of what happens tonight, this won't be the worst road season in Edmonton history. In 1993/1994 the Oilers won a measly 8 of their 42 road games and in 2009/2010 they won 9, while in 1992/1993 they won 10. Hopefully one day in the next five years we are talking about competing for most wins, not fewest

Twenty-two games into 2013-14, Anton Lander remains stuck at one assist.
I can’t help thinking that’s going to kill his Oilers career, and possibly his NHL ambitions.

Another good effort, but moral victories don't count. Final Score: 3-2 Ducks.

For several months now, a conversation involving Sam Reinhart often ends up with the young man being compared to Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. Is that accurate?
