#MakeitFive Live Coverage

The NHL Draft Lottery may be a poor substitute for playoff hockey, but for the last decade it is pretty much all that fans of the Edmonton Oilers have had to cheer for. However, while the on-ice results have not been kind to Edmonton, the off-ice ones certainly have. Four times in the last six…

WHEN LUCK GETS ANGRY

I have promised myself this draft lottery day will never match last year (this video has been viewed over 100,000 times—I am in for over 50 myself) but the new rules mean there is grave danger as well as rich reward at 6pm our time. Everybody is talking about the lottery. Will Edmonton win? At…

2015-16 Oilers: The Taylor Hall Line

Taylor Hall entered the year as the Edmonton Oilers’ top line left wing, the anchor point for the club’s best forward unit. He remains at the top of the team’s depth chart, but by the end of the year his line had fallen into a secondary role, victims both of a late-season slump and of…

WHO SHOULD GO NO. 4?

The NHL draft lottery goes tomorrow—in less than 24 hours we will know where Edmonton is slotted among the lottery teams. If the tumblers click in the right order, the internet could be down for days! If the Oilers choose second or third, most fans will know the names of Patrik Laine and Jesse Puljujarvi….

The Best Goalie from the Past Decade

We were shooting the breeze at Nation HQ, and we started talking about all the goalies the Oilers have used since the 06 Cup run. After putting together the list I was blown away by the sheer volume of goaltenders that have come and gone since that magical run a decade ago. What I’m asking for today…

Thursday Trade Talk

Eh? Ehhhh? He doesn’t look half bad. ? from Scott Lewis. #Subban #Oilers #NHL A photo posted by OilersNation (@officialoilersnation) on Apr 22, 2016 at 9:30am PDT Every Thursday we will discuss different trade scenarios. Today’s topic is P.K Subban. Why would the Canadiens even considering trading him? Could he make his way to Edmonton?

I Want a Lottery Win and a Seat to Watch the World Burn

With the draft lottery, and impending lottery party, coming up on Saturday I got to thinking about how badly I want the Oilers to win again. I want them to win so bad that it’s starting to affect my life. I can’t stop thinking about it, but probably not for the reasons you’d expect.

TOP 100 OILERS: JARRET STOLL (69)

In an era when many people get a good chunk of their information from media outlets that seem as interested in celebrity as in actual news, Jarret Stoll has probably been as well-known these last few years for all the hot women’s he’s dated and for getting arrested for drug possession as he has for…

Condors Re-Sign Ryan Hamilton

Embed from Getty Images Ryan Hamilton returning to the Bakersfield Condors, and hence the Edmonton Oilers organization as a whole, is certainly the start of something. But is it the beginning of a status-quo off-season for the AHL farm team or is it the launching point for a summer of signings?

WWYDW: Would you have any interest in Brent Seabrook?

With Chicago’s early playoff exit and Edmonton’s continuing need for help on the right side, this week’s edition of What Would You Do Wednesday seemed like a good chance to…
