This is a depiction (via War-on-Ice) of the Edmonton Oilers defense in 2015-16. Oscar Klefbom faced the toughest opposition and won the possession battle, but could not stay healthy. Andrej Sekera and Mark Fayne battled well facing tough opps too, and then after that we have a plethora of good with bad (and one brilliant—Brandon Davidson) options. What do the Oilers need? Where can Peter Chiarelli look?

In a series that begins today, we are going to re-visit a magical time—the late winter, spring and early summer of 2006. The first chapter opens as we approach the trade deadline. A top flight NHL team is hanging around the final playoff spot, badly in need of a goalie. GM Kevin Lowe casts about looking for a solution, and my goodness did he find one.

I’m a big fan of the move to sign undrafted free agent Drake Caggiula by the Oilers. Edmonton’s draft record after the first round has been questionable at best. Although there have been a few promising players taken late, the team hasn’t been able to produce depth forwards capable of pushing into the club’s bottom six.

Reports are circulating all over the Internet that the Edmonton Oilers have (or will be) signed college UFA Drake Caggiula to a two-year entry level contract.

There's a chance the Edmonton Oilers choose a player from the OHL at No 4 overall. I looked at three defensemen who offer strong resume's in the first look at the Ontario league, and now we take a good long look at five forwards who have been mentioned a time or two in discussions about that high draft pick.
