Show us something, kid

Laurent Brossoit isn’t going to settle any arguments about whether he’s a bonafide long-term option in goal for the Edmonton Oilers behind Cam Talbot no matter what he does in the crease against the Buffalo Sabres tonight. That said, it’s about time he at least made a case that he deserves a longer look.

Three Thoughts: A Win!

I don’t know if that 8-3 loss to the St. Louis Blues on Tuesday represented rock bottom for the Edmonton Oilers in what’s been an unquestionably terrible start to the season, but it’s as close to it as I’ve seen since Dallas Eakins was strutting around behind the bench and getting pissy with Taylor Hall…

Can The Oilers Mirror the Flames?

Oilersnation is angry my friends, like an old man trying to send back soup at a deli. A 7-11-2 start is not what anyone expected. Even the most pessimistic fan didn’t expect the Oilers to be in 28th place at the 20-game mark. But here we are. I’m sure a comparison to their provincial rival…

Acquiring Defence: Edmonton vs. Toronto

Edmonton and Toronto were in similar positions after the 2014-15 season. Both franchises were coming off poor seasons, finishing in the bottom five of the standings, and needed major changes on defence. How did they rebuild their bluelines over the next three summers?
