TEAM CANADA GAME DAY – UNITED STATES

Well it’s the game we’ve all been waiting for, the showdown for top spot in Group B and the bye in the medal round. Or at least it was supposed to be. Canada held up their part of the rivalry agreement, but apparently someone forgot to deliver the memo to the U.S. Instead, the New…

GDB 37.0: 2011 NOT A GREAT YEAR FOR OILER FANS

The 2011 calendar year has not been a great one for the Oilers or their fans. The Oilers only won 28 of the 82 games they’ve played so far, so the best part of today’s early morning tilt (MST time) is that it will end a dreadful "year" of Oilers hockey. They went 28-46-8 over…

HAPPY NEW YEAR: SAME OLD THING?

As 2011 draws to a close, should we really be surprised the Edmonton Oilers are fading fast in the Western Conference after a start to the season that had some fans convinced that happy days, and a playoff spot, were here again?

TEAM CANADA GAME DAY – DENMARK

  Canada plays for the second night in a row, but it should have no bearing on the outcome of this game. The Canadians are rolling right now with 13 goals for and only 1 against, the penalty kill is at 100% and they are getting goals from everyone. In the last game, expectations were…

ROAD TO NOWHERE

Tom Renney says he is hopeful his Edmonton Oilers can find a way to squeeze eight points from the team’s upcoming six-game road trip and stay within hailing distance of a playoff spot in the Western Conference. Whether Renney actually believes that is another matter.

The Long Winding Road Trip to a close team

Seven games, thirteen days, seven time changes and over 13,500 km to travel….OUCH. That works out to just a little less than flying from Edmonton to Vancouver 13 days in a row. That is the Oilers current road trip. Even though they came home for the Christmas break the game in Vancouver there remains another six…

TEAM CANADA GAME DAY – CZECH REPUBLIC

Canada started off the 2012 World Junior Championship with an impressive 8-1 win over Finland, and now draws the Czech Republic. Last night the Czech’s came off their own opening win, downing Denmark by a score of 7-0. The two teams meet for 29th time since 1977, with Canada holding the edge with a 14-6-8…

SO HONEST IT HURTS

Fans growing frustrated watching Ryan Whitney of the Edmonton Oilers struggle to bounce back from ankle surgery and find his game have nothing on the hobbled defenseman. He feels your pain, and then some.

Let it Bleed

Edmonton Oiler fans enjoyed an outstanding first game of the 10-11 season. Rookie Jordan Eberle scored the goal of the year and the Godless Flames fell in an epic moment of good vs. evil. This season, the team extended the feelgood through a dozen games before going back to the rebuild. With the Oilers grabbing…
