Jordan Eberle is having a very strong rookie season, and given the current state of the Edmonton Oilers and the alarming number of useful players currently sitting out with injuries, he represents one of the team’s few bright spots. How does his 20-year old season compare to those who have gone before him? What other players produced in the same range offensively while at the same age?

The NHL Entry draft is still 3 months away. For Edmonton Oiler scouts, that's a good thing.

Tonight is like a playoff game for Oiler fans. Win and the Oilers can unofficially,
scratch that, OFFICIALLY, eliminate the Calgary Flames from playoff contention. The past two seasons have been excruciatingly tough to stomach, yet Rexall Place has been sold out every night. I know the Oilers are understaffed and are playing with three 3rd lines and a 4th line tonight, but the players must recognize what a win would mean to the fans.
A true Oiler fan despises the Flames.
You loathe them.
They disgust you.
Adhor sits at the edge of your tongue when you see a Flames jersey, and for the love of hockey the Oilers better SHOW UP tonight.

Magnus Pääjärvi is a very impressive young player. Size, blazing speed and exceptional attention to defensive detail for a man his age. As his rookie season nears an end, there is one question we should ask about him: is he going to score enough to be a long term option for the top 2 lines?

For weary Edmonton Oiler fans, the CHL post-season has arrived just in time. An extremely large number of Oiler prospects will be playing in the post-season in hopes of winning league championships and ultimately the Memorial Cup.
