MUSIL!

David Musil has played in Edmonton colors before, and will play for the Oilers soon. For now, he’s trading in his Giants uniform for an Oil King set. David Musil is a huge upgrade for the OK Blue.

DUBNYK TALKS CBA, LUONGO AND NEEDING TO PLAY

While Justin Schultz is one of the biggest benefactors of this lockout, Devan Dubnyk might be one of the biggest losers. He just signed a two-year extension with the hopes he’d have the opportunity to prove he can be a #1 goalie. The lockout has been a massive roadblock in those plans thus far, and…

Oilers Point Projections: The Rest

It’s time for our third and final piece of looking at different statistical ways to project how many points each of the Oilers will score.

There’s a problem down at the Plante

The Oklahoma City Barons beat Texas 4-2 on Sunday. They did it without Alex Plante, who for the third time in seven games sat in the press box and watched. For a Plante, a first round draft pick, third year professional, and a guy with NHL games under his belt each year he’s been a…
