I get to vote on the Oilers best defenceman of the year award. I have voted on CFL all-stars, MVP's, NLL all-stars and individual awards as well as Oiler awards over the years and I take it seriously. I do some research, talk to players in the league and look up numerous different stats. I believe it is important to do some research and put in some effort when voting on these awards.
Even though the Oilers have had another horrendous season, I believe you owe it to the players to make an educated vote.
I have done my research and have made my vote, but I'm curious who Oilers fans would vote for.

Canada's management group for this year's World Hockey Championships have been named. The tournament will go in Minsk (Belarus) in May. Rob Blake is the GM this year, with Ron Hextall of the Philadelphia Flyers, Brad Treliving of the Phoenix Coyotes and Brad Pascall of Hockey Canada helping him out.
If called, will Taylor Hall go? Should he go?

The Oilers made a somewhat surprising announcement Wednesday afternoon, welcoming Finnish goalie Frans Tuohimaa to North America and assigning him to their AHL affiliate in Oklahoma City.

At his press availability on Wednesday, Dallas Eakins was lobbed a softball question about rookie defenceman Martin Marincin, who has been one of the few pleasant surprises on the team this season. Rather than extol the defender’s virtues, Eakins chose to focus on the challenge still ahead of the player.
