Benoit Pouliot took a seat last night as the Oilers looked to different men to spark the team and get back into the Win column. Pouliot has been a divisive player during his time in Edmonton, and really over his entire career. He’s known both for his 5v5 offense and for his innate ability to get penalized in the offensive zone, but what’s going on with him this year?

For most of this century, the Edmonton Oilers have had a terrible time in the procurement department. Early on, the club was drafting players the coach didn't seem to value (Jani Rita, Rob Schremp) and still later the drafting department stopped producing players who could dominate in the AHL. Add that to management's tendency to flush men like Jason Chimera and Kyle Brodziak just as they were ready to establish themselves, and it made for a vexing situation. Are there signs things could be getting better? (Photo of Anton Slepyshev by Mark Williams, all rights reserved).

If you Google the NWHL, its Wikipedia page comes up with (2015 - ) beside its name. If you Google the NHL, there’s no date beside it. This could mean absolutely nothing, but considering Friday’s events regarding the NWHL, it seems to be an eery reminder that the National Women’s Hockey League seemingly has an expiry date attached to it. While I realize this topic lacks the Oilers, I also think that the downfall of the first professional women’s hockey league that promised to pay its players is a topic that all hockey fans should be concerned about.

We love HOME games; have Liquor Depot delivery in under an hour. Click, pick, sit back and watch the game.
The Edmonton Oilers play the Dallas Stars tonight and can declare victory if they don't get scored on first. After a blazing start, the Oildrop have given it all back and stand at 9-8-1 for the season. They are still in a good spot, owing to the turtle race that is the Pacific Division. A win today and close the books on a 1-2-0 week and look ahead to Chicago, Colorado and Arizona twice in the next week.
