Life, death, and contract holdouts

Warm summer nights start to cool off around the end of August here in Alberta. The grass will soon start to brown as leaves fall off the trees and the apples on the trees in your backyard will soon fall to the ground.

All About Aapeli Rasanen

Drafted as a late round pick in 2016, Aepeli Rasanen is a prospect that has flown under the radar a little bit with Oilers fans, but one that is still worth noting. While still a long-term project, there is potential for Rasanen to develop into a two-way center provided that he continues to work on his game…

Waiting on Joe

A lot of people have reached out to former NHLer Joe Murphy since the news broke that he is destitute and homeless and living on the streets of Kenora, Ont. I imagine a lot more people will do the same right across the country when his story goes national with the item, Finding Murph, running…

Linus Omark does it again

I believed in a lot of players during the Decade of Darkness who ultimately didn’t pan out. At the top of that list was Linus Omark. I was convinced the second member of H.O.P.E was going to be a star for the Oilers. It never happened, but he’s managed to carve out a niche as…

The Nielson Ratings (Part 2) – An Offseason Review

With the exception of a new deal for Darnell Nurse, it is safe to assume that over the last couple of days Oilers President of Hockey Operations Peter Chiarelli has put the final touches on his off-season. A PTO for Scottie Upshall and a one-year deal for Jakub Jerabek appear to have filled up the…

All About Filip Berglund

Drafted with the third-round pick that was acquired in the trade that sent Justin Schultz to Pittsburgh, Filip Berglund is definitely a defensive prospect of interest. With a blend of size and skill, Berglund is most often described as a defensive defenceman, but the hope is that there is still a two-way aspect to his…
