Faceoff

Edmonton’s season divides neatly into two segments, at least chronologically. There was the very good opening, when the club went 7-1-0 and climbed to the top of its division. More recently, there’s been a very tough fall from that height, with the Oilers losing five straight and eight of their last 10.

However, breaking the season down into two streaks isn’t the only—or even the best—way to look at Edmonton’s performance so far. It’s far more interesting to look at who the Oilers win, and lose, against.

Alright, guys, I'm not going to lie to you, the Edmonton Oilers have looked like a hot pile of garbage the last few games and it's not a good look. They've gone 2-7-1 in their last ten games (even though it's felt more like 0-10) and we're not having much production from anybody. Benoit Pouliot is pointless in 11 games, Connor is scoreless in 11 games, and Nuge only has 2 points in seven games. This is only the beginning of the Oilers problems, but thankfully I'm not here to discuss problems. I'm here to discuss positives.

This is a picture right before Dave Hanson lived out most of your dreams and punched me square in the face. It was awesome, though. I even thanked him.

Anton Lander was placed on waivers today, the breaking news covered very well by Zach Laing. I wanted to have a quick discussion about Lander as a second-round draft pick—as in, has he delivered value for that selection? Let's have a look. (Photo by Rob Ferguson, all rights reserved)

It’s no surprise that Connor McDavid looked frustrated more than once against the Los Angeles Kings at Staples Center Thursday. A 4-2 loss to the Kings was the Oilers fifth straight defeat. McDavid, was held without a goal again, marking the 10 th consecutive game in which he’s failed to score.
