WWYDW(TE): Fixing the power play

The Oilers have had a disappointing last few days, dropping back-to-back games against the Canucks and Blues, two teams you’d expect them to beat. I wouldn’t say Edmonton was thoroughly outplayed in either game but a big part of both losses was poor special teams.


Santa Letters: Part One

This is my first Christmas writing for the Nation and after getting my hands on a couple of Nation hoodies I’m really feeling like part of the family! I sat down with my own family and wrote letters to Santa last week, this week I’m going to sit down and write some letters to Santa…

The Drawing Board

For all the complaining in recent days about not getting a square deal from the officials, the real problem for the Edmonton Oilers in back-to-back losses to the Vancouver Canucks and the St. Louis Blues has been how ineffective their special teams have been.


If the Oilers become buyers…
