Nicholson Proves Not Right Man for the Job, Again

As the Edmonton Oilers work their way out of the playoff picture and try to usher in a new season, new era and potentially right the ship under the current regime, the folks at the top of the food chain are proving over and over again that they might not be the best men to lead the charge. Nicholson Misstepped Out of the Gate Fans are frustrated. Understandably so. Another season without playoffs is not where the team wanted to be; but, is perhaps where the team should have expected...

Predators’ History with College Free Agents

It’s the time of the year when the college hockey season is coming an end and that means several things when it comes to NHL teams. For collegiate players who have been drafted, it means they have the opportunity to sign with the team that drafted them, potentially joining that team for the remainder of the regular season. However, for college players who either haven’t been drafted or have been drafted but never signed and just completed their senior season, they become unrestricted free agents...

Canucks News & Rumors: Benning, Biega, Pettersson & Bure

It’s a difficult part of the season for the Vancouver Canucks, one way or another. The team has all but been eliminated from the playoffs, yet they went into Dallas and Chicago took two overtime wins from the Stars (in a shootout) and the Blackhawks (when Bo Horvat scored 16 seconds into overtime). Most fans might suggest that it’s a time when the Canucks should be losing, but this is a team that seems to win when it should be losing and loses when it should be winning. There is a slight cha...

The Edmonton Oilers Are Close To Missing The Playoffs Again

from Terry Jones of the Edmonton Sun, What we’re dealing with now is a certified, verified, fully accredited, official ‘Death March’. It’s ‘Tragic Number’ time. That’s the opposite of ‘Magic Number’ time. After the Tuesday debacle in St. Louis in which the Blues chased Mikko Koskinen early in the second period and had a 4-0 lead at the same time the Oilers had registered their fifth shot on goal of the game en route to 7-2 drubbing, Edmonton’s ‘Tragic Number became six. Th...

St. Louis Blues: Evaluating Craig Berube

When the St. Louis Blues decided to fire former head coach Mike Yeo and replace him with his assistant, Craig Berube, it seemed like the season was already lost, and it was only Nov. 20. Now, four months later, the Blues are solidly in a playoff spot, and the new coach is understandably getting a lot of the credit. Most recently, he earned a place atop NBC Sports’ NHL head coach power ranking. The national media is singing Berube’s praises, but has he fully earned it? Let’s take a look at th...

Coyotes Weekly: Still in the Playoff Hunt

With less than three weeks to go, and with the Arizona Coyotes still firmly entrenched in a tight race for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference, there’s no doubt that, over the next few weeks, every game (and point) matters. There are only nine games remaining, and only 18 more points can be gathered, giving the Coyotes a 96-point maximum for this season. Six wins in those nine games will give Arizona 90 points – would that be enough to qualify for the Stanley Cup playoffs? Can they ...

The Edmonton Oilers Drop A Game To The St. Louis Blues

from Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal, Lights out now, we can put that playoff storyline to bed. It’s never good reading when you’re down 4-zip after 31 minutes, you’re being pummelled 25-6 on the shot-clock, and you can easily fit the shooters into 140 characters in one tweet — Connor McDavid, Leon Draisaitl, Zack Kassian, Kyle Brodziak, Ty Rattie and Joe Gambardella — but that’s the Edmonton Oilers lot in life when Ken Hitchcock says; “The team’s running on fumes.” What the ...

Oilers Season Seat Event Didn’t Help Sway Fans

Sabres’ Season Filled With Streaks

The Buffalo Sabres’ 2018-19 season will likely be remembered as a collection of streaks. Some lasting a month, some a few games and some as little as 27 seconds. Unfortunately, most of them should be forgotten. Buffalo Sabres goalie Carter Hutton had eight straight wins in November, but this season he’s also had five streaks of three or more straight losses.

Revisiting David Poile’s Drafts – 1998

The Nashville Predators have been an NHL franchise since the 1998-99 season after the city was granted an expansion team in June 1997. In their 20 seasons of existence, there has been one constant: general manager David Poile, who’s served that role since the franchise’s inception. Therefore, he’s been the architect of every team that’s suited up, from the inaugural roster through the 2018-19 rendition. That means he’s been the decision-maker in a lot of drafts and has made a lot of picks, 178 t...

Edmonton Oilers Final Run: 3 Good, 3 Bad, 3 Worse

With only twelve games left in the NHL season for the Edmonton Oilers and the team eight points back of a wild-card spot in the Western Conference, the playoffs aren’t looking very likely.

Whatever happens with the last few games in March, there is some good and bad to take from the season and this final stretch run. What you choose to focus on as an Oilers fan is ...
