Welcome, Nation, to a fresh episode of Oilersnation Radio that’s ready for your earholes just in time for the weekend. How exciting is that? This week, we welcomed Brock Seguin from Daily Faceoff to talk a little fantasy hockey, Ken Holland, the Stanley Cup Finals, and a whole lot more.
According to our own Jason Gregor, the Edmonton Oilers have parted ways with assistant coaches Trent Yawney and Manny Viveiros.
All month I’ve been looking at potential trade targets for the GM Ken Holland to look at this offseason and now, it’s time to give you the fourth and final group of teams that I think will be very active this summer. These teams all suffered very disappointing seasons in 2018/19 and I think their…
All kinds of 2019 Draft info; Marner willing to explore offer sheets; pressing Oiler questions remain; Canucks new jersey’s have leaked; grading the Flames coach and GM; Kadri, Voynov and more in this week’s Nation Roundup brought to you by Sumo Jerky.
It’s Thursday, which means I’ve scoured the web for some piping hot (and reliable) rumours from around the NHL to breakdown. This week, I’m focusing on some the potential destination of a big name and a nixed trade involving another high-end player and how those two pieces of news affect the Oilers.

“Can you give me 10 minutes, I just have a gator in my pond” That what’s the voice on the other end said when I dialled him up in Naples, Florida, for what I thought was going to be a 15-20 chat about Rob Schremp’s life now, and brief NHL career from the past.
It’s Wednesday because Dusty is heading to Calgary *spits* and so we’re live instead of Thursday.
Yesterday, Dave Tippett was announced as the 16th head coach in the history of the Edmonton Oilers. It will also be his 16th year as an NHL head coach, having spent seven years (six seasons due to lockout) in Dallas and eight years with the Coyotes organization. He signed a three-year deal, but he and…
Do you love wasting time and listening to me ramble about the Oilers? Of course you do. As always, I spent a few minutes to start of my Wednesday morning on air with the boys at The Locker Room to talk a little bit about the Oilers and a lot about life.

I have the sign-off.” Of everything he said Tuesday, that snippet from Edmonton Oilers’ GM and POHO Ken Holland, in conversation with Bob Stauffer and Reid Wilkins of 630 CHED, about trusting new coaching hire Dave Tippett to select his own coaching staff without interference sticks with me.
This morning, the Oilers took care of a little bit of housekeeping as they re-signed forward, Joseph Gambardella, to a two-year, two-way contract extension with a $700K AAV at the NHL level.
