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.
The Oilers hold their destiny in their own hands. They don’t have to scoreboard watch or worry about anybody else losing. They’re in a playoff spot right now and simply playing well down the stretch will get them into the big dance come April.
Last night we all got to bear witness to just how incredible Connor McDavid is. His injury was detailed in incredible fashion in the documentary Whatever It Takes that aired Friday night.
It’s only happened five times before, but if the playoffs ended today the Edmonton Oilers would be squaring off against the Calgary Flames. The last time the two teams squared off was in 1991 when the Oilers took out the Flames in seven games.
The Oilers have put themselves in an excellent position at the All-Star break as they sit in a tie for fifth in the Western Conference. But, as well as they’ve played thus far, nothing is guaranteed. What Ken Holland does at the trade deadline will play a big role in what happens down the stretch…
We are officially just 32 days away from the NHL trade deadline! The Oilers are on their bye week but still sit just one point back of the top spot in the Pacific Division. I’ve been hesitant to say it so far this season, but I think it’s time to officially consider the Oilers ‘buyers’….

Like many of you, I consider Edmonton Oilers’ captain Connor McDavid the best player on the planet. For me, it’s not even close. Like many of you, I had absolutely no idea how serious the injury he suffered to his left knee in the final game of last season was until word began to trickle…
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…
Welcome to Oilersnation’s Deadline Targets series. Over the next few weeks heading into the trade deadline, I’ll be walking through the teams expected to unload at the deadline and the players who could be fits on the Oilers for their playoff push. Today, we have the Los Angeles Kings.
There’s an interesting case to be made for the Edmonton Oilers trading their first-round pick this year. The club is in a position as we embark on the all-star break that they haven’t been in a long time — that being one where they’re in a playoff spot.
