The Backup Goalie Market

The list of needs for the Edmonton Oilers this summer is pretty much agreed upon by most who follow the team. They need one or two wingers, a right shot defenseman and maybe another depth forward. The other item that’s sometimes thrown on the list is a backup goalie that’s better than Al Montoya and…

RFA Profile: Drake Caggiula is still carving out a niche

Part of the reason Peter Chiarelli viewed Jordan Eberle as expendable, I think, was what appeared to be a glut of secondary scoring on the wings ready to take a step forward. One of those wingers expected to take on a bigger role on the team after the Eberle trade was Drake Caggiula, Edmonton’s big…

(Video) Friday Fights: Top 25 of 2017-18 (20th-16th)

The season is over now. The playoffs are on-going. The NHL hates fighting in the playoffs, when the only series that seemed to care about hating each other (Minnesota/Winnipeg) got heated, the NHL got penalty happy, handing out two games worth of penalties in the first period.

McDavid among the top selling NHL jerseys

The NHL released the list of their top-selling jerseys this morning and the Oilers’ captain, Connor McDavid, ranks among the league leaders in overall units sold. Surprised? Unlikely.

Ties that bind

Todd McLellan and Glen Gulutzan spent the last two seasons on opposite sides of the Battle of Alberta, but that didn’t stop them from picking up the telephone, having a chat and deciding they’d travel back to Saskatchewan, where they both have roots, together to see what they could do to help in the wake…

Fun Debates and a Big Thank You

April is a wonderful time to be a sports fan. You have hockey playoffs in the AJHL, WHL, AHL and NHL. You have NBA playoffs. MLB has begun, the NFL draft is next week, followed by the CFL draft, and the NHL will announce the finalists for player awards. There is no shortage of topics…

Happy 3rd Connorversary!

Can you believe that it’s already been three years since the Oilers won the privilege to draft Connor McDavid? It was three years ago today that the lottery gods gave us the nod and blessed our franchise with the best player to hit the NHL since Sidney Crosby, and I wanted to take a minute to…

WWYDW: The coaching staff

On Tuesday afternoon, the Calgary Flames announced that they were relieving Glen Gulutzan and his staff of their duties. After a disappointing season in which the Flames missed the playoffs despite going all-in in the off-season with the acquisitions of Mike Smith and Travis Hamonic, management decided the coaching staff deserved to take the fall…
