How interested should the Edmonton Oilers be in David Rundblad?

On Monday, the Chicago Blackhawks put defenceman David Rundblad on waivers. The 25-year-old rearguard has been with the organization for parts of three seasons, playing 63 games, putting up 16 points and managing a plus-14 rating along with decent underlying numbers. He never won over head coach Joel Quenneville, though. Rundblad fell out of favour…

A CHANCE WORTH TAKING?

So, the Edmonton Oilers traded goaltender Ben Scrivens, a young man who is the dictionary definition of a model citizen, to the Montreal Canadiens for forward Zack Kassian, who is without question something less than that. The Oilers traded a good guy for a bad guy. What are we to make of this?

The Christmas turkey has been consumed (well, mostly) and the…

GDB 36.0: CRAZY TALK

The last time Edmonton Oilers fans could talk playoffs without sounding like lunatics? 2006. Oh sure, there was that time Steve Tambellini added Ales Kotalik in a bizarre flurry of deadline deals, but the last time the Oilers were really in the conversation, Craig MacTavish didn’t feel there was much difference between Ty Conklin and…
