The Wheels of Justice?

It’s been five long days since the NHL Department of Player Safety handed down a two-game suspension for Connor McDavid’s hit on New York Islanders defenceman Nick Leddy. If you have been on a deserted island and haven’t seen the news/the hit, welcome back and have a look here for the announcement.


HOT TAKES – February Edition!

It’s time for another round of the hottest damn takes you are going to find on both the Oilers and the rest of the National Hockey League. Happy end of February everyone!


GDB Game Notes: Oilers @ Leafs: McDavid Returns

It feels odd to write Connor McDavid returns from suspension, but that is indeed what will unfold tonight in Toronto when the NHL’s third leading scorer returns to the Edmonton Oilers lineup. His teammates played quite well in his absence, picking up three of a possible four points, but under the most blatant Captain Obvious…


2019 Deadline Produces Nothing But A Rumour

Not sure how to feel after sitting through hours of trade deadline coverage and not getting a single trade involving the Oilers? Well, I’m in the same boat. At the very least I was expecting them to move out someone like Alex Petrovic for a late round draft pick. We didn’t even get that.

GDB 62.0 Wrap Up: Leon Draisaitl — so hot right now

It’s no surprise that Leon Draisaitl is an elite NHL forward.

The 50 goal mark is one that hasn’t been seen in Edmonton in decades —…


Inside the Nation: Deadline dud and the summer ahead

It’s Monday and how about that Trade deadline coverage? The Oilers did nothing but that won’t stop the consummate professional, Dustin Nielsen, from bringing you his hot takes and other thoughts from the weekend and today. What we talked about today: The Oilers did nothing! Chiasson wasn’t getting what the Oilers were asking for Did…
