Yes, it’s far too early in the season to be saying that any of these individual contests are must-win games. It isn’t too early to say the Oilers need to find a way to get some wins. Either fortunately or unfortunately, the situation is much the same in Washington, a team that with a 1-4-0 record is actually a point back of Edmonton.

Nail Yakupov was a healthy scratch on Saturday night, and it appears some members of the family took it harder than others.

I understand that fans of the Edmonton Oilers don't particularly want their ranting and raving about Devan Dubnyk interrupted by a "look on the bright side" item right now. Fair enough.

It takes time for a team to adopt the style of play a new coach is putting in place. At times the players are stuck between being in the right place and being out of position, it can look like they are frozen. We have seen this for quite a few periods for the Oilers this season. The good news is that it will get better.

Last night in the Big Smoke, Dallas Eakins decided not to play Nail Yakupov. The first cut is the deepest, but what are the reasons behind the move? Was the move warranted? Was the move inspired by something real or imagined?
