What the NWHL Salary Cuts Mean for Women in Hockey

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.

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.

Schedule and the Edmonton Oilers

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.

Edmonton Oilers Positivity Thread

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.
