Oilers midterm report card: Forwards

The Oilers are on their bye week right now, which is a good thing for the team and fans alike. I think we all need a bit of a break. 2017-18 hasn’t been kind to the Oilers as the team has failed to live up to the lofty expectations that stemmed from their breakout season…

Game Day Notes: Edmonton Oilers at Vegas Golden Knights

The Edmonton Oilers will roll into their bye week after tonight’s game against the Vegas Golden Knights. It’ll be the Oilers’ first trip to Vegas (for the purpose of playing the Golden Knights) ever before, but given the way the season has gone, there won’t be much reason for celebration in Sin City.

Predators 2, Oilers 1 post-game Oil Spills: A game of inches

Another day, another frustrating loss. The Oilers have just one win in five games in 2018 and the faint hope that they had built up around making an unlikely playoff run prior to the Christmas break has now completely dried up. The team didn’t play poorly, but they just weren’t good enough, which has been…

Trading Andrej Sekera for Brent Seabrook would be very bad

Brent Seabrook’s name is making its way through the streets of Edmonton today. First, it was reported that the 13-season veteran and three-time Stanley Cup champion of the Chicago Blackhawks would be a healthy scratch from Chicago’s lineup tonight. Second, Bob Stauffer mentioned the idea of a possible deal involving Andrej Sekera and Seabrook, with…

Game Day Notes: Edmonton Oilers at Nashville Predators

We were so close to a Nashville Predators and Edmonton Oilers Western Conference Final last spring. Heading into this season, that appeared to be an inevitability. Now it’s incredibly far away. The Predators have lived up to their billing as one of the teams to beat in the West, but Oilers have struggled mightily and…

Cody Franson is on waivers

Here we go again. It’s time to argue about Cody Franson, one of the NHL’s strangest enigmas. The Chicago Blackhawks placed Franson on waivers today. He was invited to the team’s training camp on a PTO in September and inked a one-year deal worth $1 million.

Eric Gryba draws the short straw in numbers game on the Oilers blueline

Prior to their game against the Chicago Blackhawks on Friday, the Oilers activated Oscar Klefbom from the Injured Reserve. It represented the first time all season that Edmonton had a fully healthy blueline. But it also meant that somebody had to go. After the Oilers grabbed Brandon Davidson off of waivers from the Montreal Canadiens,…
