Next 10 need to be better

The Oilers are off to a rough 3-7 start, but when I looked at the schedule at the beginning of the season I expected a rough ride early on. Their seven losses came against teams who are all currently top-ten in the NHL standings. The Oilers weren’t going to go from a cellar-dweller to a…

THE TRADE

Craig MacTavish has taken a lot of heat for his transactions in recent months—most fans can list off the errors in seconds. Far beyond the Nikitin, Purcell and Ference deals, way back in the woods among the depth moves, lies a fascinating trade with an amazing story to tell.

We’ll probably see some sort of cap increase next year, but even so…

Nurse recalled… Reinhart to IR

The Oilers have recalled Darnell Nurse and put Griffin Reinhart on injured reserve. Justin Schultz did not make the trip to Minnesota, so the Oilers have a spot on the backend, and I believe they need Nurse’s speed.

TOP 100 OILERS: IGOR ULANOV (93)

View image | gettyimages.com There is little statistical justification, advanced or otherwise, for having Igor Ulanov on this list of Top 100 Oilers, so those of you who lean heavily on such details can take a gulp of Sprite and roll your eyes. I’m putting him in the No. 93 slot because I don’t want…
