The Hart Debate: About Connor

I already wrote that I don’t think Connor McDavid should win the Hart Memorial Trophy this season based on factors I considered important in the years I voted with the PHWA. That’s not to be mistaken for saying he can’t win it because the Edmonton Oilers aren’t going to be in the playoffs, just that…


(Video) Yamamoto’s year in the Dub

The WHL just released a video on their official Twitter account comprised of Kailer Yamamoto highlights from this past season with the Spokane Chiefs and you should probably spend a few minutes watching.

On this day in history: Oilers clinch playoff spot

I don’t want to be THAT guy, but today’s an important day in Oilers history that probably needs to be brought up again. On this day in Oilers history, we broke a ten year drought and clinched a spot in the post season for the first time since 2006.

NHL Draft Lottery Odds Have Changed

The Edmonton Oilers are seasoned veterans of winning the draft lottery and they will be in consideration for the top pick yet again this year.

What is the Oilers’ biggest need?

The Edmonton Oilers have five games left and then the offseason begins. Roster moves don’t happen until June, but some coaches and general managers go, college free agents sign and the lottery balls are drawn to see who gets the first three picks in the draft.
