Capilano Rehab Centre Injury Report – March 8, 2016

Here goes another week of writing bad news in the injury report. The only two things keeping me positive about all these injuries is the fact that our playoff hopes are essentially dead (meaning we don’t need a healthy roster for an early off-season), and Connor McDavid (for obvious reasons).


Capilano Rehab Centre Injury Report – March 1, 2016

We welcome the month of March into Oil Country with a big ol’ how-do-ya-do shoulder injury to Benoit Pouliot. After watching him slide into the boards head first against the Islanders the other day. I was surprised to see that he didn’t burst into flames after that crash. 


Capilano Rehab Centre Injury Report – February 23, 2016

Capilano Rehab Centre Injury Report – December 8, 2015

Throw a couple more injuries onto the pile this week, surprise, surprise. I don’t even remember what it’s like to have a healthy team anymore – it hasn’t happened all season. Good on the Oilers for hanging in there with all their injuries, though. There are a lot of people who would have given up as…


GDB -2.0: Canucks-lite Visit Rexall

The Oilers haven’t allowed a goal in just over 147 minutes. I know it is the preseason, but thus far we have seen a significant improvement in their defensive zone awareness. We haven’t seen glaring mistakes, or five-star turnovers, and that has to be considered progress.


The Roundup

New salary cap and it’s effect on teams, Mark Giordano’s asking price, a fight between two first overall picks, Bieksa, Lucic, Bozak, McDavid and all the draft and trade news you can handle in this week’s Roundup.
