The Oilers continue to beef up their blueline, have yet to land a bottom six forward, just signed Steve MacIntyre and are willing to give Sheldon Souray away for nothing. The Oilers re-signed Jason Strudwick to a one-year deal, and they also signed D-man, Richard Petiot to a one-year deal. Petiot played in Rockford last year, […]
Tomorrow the free agent frenzy begins, and once again we will see some GMs lose their marbles and overpay a first liner, a 4th D-man or even a 3rd line plugger with the hopes that player will put his team over the top.
The Edmonton Oilers have declined to tender qualifying offers to restricted free agents Marc Pouliot and Ryan Potulny, meaning they’ll be free to shop their services to other teams July 1.
The most entertaining playoffs in recent memory wrapped up last night with the Chicago Blackhawks ending the longest active Stanley Cup drought with an exciting 4-3 OT victory.

Edmonton Oilers: 4 (SO) Los Angeles Kings: 3
Edmonton Oilers: 5 Colorado Avalanche: 4 (OT)
