I'm not sure if what I saw on the ice at Rexall Place today was an exhibition of frustration or a sign there's still some fight left in the Edmonton Oilers, or maybe both, but I didn't mind the display of nastiness a bit.

Magunis Paajarvi has speed to burn and some defensive acumen in his game. Can he parlay those things into becoming a valuable role player on this Oilers team?

It’s a question I get once at least once a week, and lately it feels more like a daily or even hourly occurrence: should Shawn Horcoff be the captain of the Edmonton Oilers?

We’re nearing the end of the 2011-12 season now. The Oilers have a pair of games left on the schedule and will close out the season on Saturday against the Vancouver Canucks. From a team perspective, there isn’t much left to see; on the individual level there are the usual battles with guys trying to stay with the team or in the league. Jordan Eberle and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins will be putting the final touches on campaigns that have them in the running for the Lady Byng and the Calder, respectively.
The latter point is the one I want to highlight this morning.

I have to admit that when Dustin Penner was traded for a first round pick and Colten Teubert last year, I assumed Teubert was a toss in. I looked him up on the Internet and wasn't really impressed with what I saw.
