Dirt With Dirt

I started working in Edmonton in July of 2009 and it didn’t take long for me to get a taste of what the Battle of Alberta was all about. Let’s flash back to the beginning of the ’09 season: the Oilers faced the Flames on October 3rd and again six days later on the 9th,…

The Post All-Star Push

All-Star weekend has come and gone, a double dose of the Battle of Alberta is just around the corner, what a way to get back in the swing of things.

Mr. Holland’s Assets

The race in the Western Conference is ridiculously tight right now and with the trade deadline now just over a month away I’m very interested to see which team blinks first. If I was a betting man, I’d expect the Calgary Flames and Winnipeg Jets to be the most active of the four Canadian clubs…

Top Six Wish List

The Oilers have 13 games remaining prior the February 24th trade deadline and I’m sure things will heat up quite a bit between now and then.

Road Trip Recap

This five-game road trip for the Oilers certainly came to an eventful end in Calgary but don’t lose focus on what was a very positive five game roadie for the club. The Oil return home with a 3-1-1 record for seven of a possible ten points and are sitting in the top wild card spot,…

The Ex-Oiler Cup

On Monday morning, I’ll be flying to Switzerland to handle the play-by-play duties of the Spengler Cup for the second consecutive year. It was an honour to be given the opportunity last year and I’m excited to head back once again. The Spengler Cup is everything you’d imagine it to be, and more. I’ve been…

Oilers Top 10 Prospects: Winter 2019

The Edmonton Oilers pipeline has been steadily improving over the past couple of years but as we witnessed this week it is not yet to the point where GM Ken Holland will be open to moving significant pieces of the team’s future.

Blame the Keepers?

The Oilers have now allowed six goals in back to back games and while fans are still willing to be patient with Mikko Koskinen they are completely done with Mike Smith. Koskinen will most certainly start against the Leafs on Saturday and this club will need a huge effort from the big Finn.

Overtime Issues?

When Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl are going they are spectacular to watch in overtime but lately, they haven’t been able to find the finish. The Oilers have gone beyond regulation eight times so far this season winning twice in overtime and twice in the shootout while also coming out on the wrong end three…

Nielson’s Notes: Oilers-Senators Edition

The Edmonton Oilers have done a pretty darn good job bouncing back after losses so far this season but they’ve been equally as bad when it comes to getting 3the job done against weaker opponents. They have now left eight points on the board against the Wings, Wild, Kings and Senators, and I don’t care…

Nielson’s Notes: Oilers-Avalanche Edition

Don’t let a 4-1 loss ruin what as a pretty darn good road trip for the Edmonton Oilers. They come home with six of a possible ten points, and in my opinion, the six points they picked up were the most important ones available on the trip. Seven of ten would have been excellent but…
