GDB 9.0: HOME ICE ADVANTAGE -TOUGHEST TIMES

The Los Angeles Kings bring their own brand of crazy to Rexall tonight and Oilers players and fans are ready. We’ll probably see another epic battle between Taylor Hall and Drew Doughty, and that steaming pile of Dustin Brown will no doubt be on the job site on time and in ill humor.

First Star, Worst Star: October 25, 2015

It’s almost November, the Oilers haven’t been mathematically eliminated from the playoffs yet, it hasn’t come close to snowing and my pick to represent the west in the Stanley Cup finals, the Anaheim Ducks, are one of the worst teams in the league. Nothing makes sense right now, which means it’s time for First Star,…

GDB 8.0: HOME ICE ADVANTAGE – Capital Punishment

The Oilers are in an eerily similar position as last year as they try for their fourth consecutive victory. The Oilers lost their first five games (0-4-1) last season, before winning four straight to inject some hope within the team and fanbase. It was short-lived success and the Oilers proceeded to win only three of…
