What’s Wrong with Kyle Turris?

Since the Nashville Predators acquired Kyle Turris in a Nov. 2017 trade, the move has been scrutinized in the year-plus since because he has struggled to stay healthy and hasn’t lived up to expectations when on the ice. With only 20 goals and 64 points in 111 regular-season games and three points in 13 playoff games as a Predator, he has been a letdown. Related: Turris Trade a Year Later Now in his age-29 season and year one of a six-year, $36-million deal, he and the Predators need to figure ou...

What the Oilers Need to Be Better Next Season

Edmonton Oilers fans have suffered through 11 out of the previous 12 seasons with their team out of the playoffs. The worst part about the now-done tenure of Peter Chiarelli is that he took over an Oilers roster with hope and scoring depth in need of some significant tweaking and left the team with very little flexibility, no scoring depth and still in need of major change. My summary of Chiarelli’s regime reviewed the dire roster outlook left by the previous general manager. We could spen...

Nugent-Hopkins Most Memorable Oilers Moments

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins arrived in Edmonton in the fall of 2011 as a baby-faced teenager with great promise. Now in his eighth NHL season, the still baby-faced Nugent-Hopkins is the longest-serving player on the roster and an extremely valuable member of the Edmonton Oilers. He has 14 goals and 38 points in 42 games this season, which puts him on-pace to surpass his career high of 56 points in 2013-14 and 2014-15. The Burnaby, British Columbia native has an astute hockey mind, excellent poise with t...

Brandon Tanev and Blake Wheeler also scored for the Jets (25-12-2), who snapped a two-game losing skid. Leon Draisaitl had a pair of goals and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins scored the other for the Oilers (18-18-3), who lost all five games of their recent homestand and have dropped six in a row overall.

Oilers Looking Ahead to Expansion Draft

The NHL announced on Dec. 4 what had been expected for months — Seattle will become the league’s 32nd team in 2021-22. This means there will also be another expansion draft. The Edmonton Oilers were fortunate to only lose Griffin Reinhart last summer, despite how bad it looked to give up a player that cost them a first and second-round pick. However, chances are the Oilers will likely lose a more valuable asset in the next expansion draft. Just like in 2017 when the Vegas Golden Knights jo...

3 Ways to Fix the Oilers Power Play

In the month of December, the Edmonton Oilers have only scored three power play goals on 33 attempts: two times versus the Colorado Avalanche and once against the mighty Winnipeg Jets. As it stands, their power play percentage stands at a woeful 9.1% and if it continues to plod away like this, the Oilers will drop out of the playoff race. We lost the game in the second period, we didn’t lose it in the third period and we lost it on special teams on the power play. – Head coach Ken Hitchcoc...

Nugent-Hopkins Not Realistic for Bruins

Trade speculation is part of the professional sports game, and this week the Boston Bruins are at the forefront. The Charlie Coyle talk has been going on for a few weeks now but this week, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins’ name was tossed into the mix. The first-overall pick from the 2011 NHL Draft and a key pivot on the Oilers’ roster makes a lot of sense for the B’s. He’s a strong offensive player with a strong two-way game and is young enough to fit in long-term. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Edmonton Oilers, Oct...

Oilers Options With Klefbom Out?

During the Edmonton Oilers 6-4 win over the Colorado Avalanche, Oscar Klefbom ran face-first into the injury bug again. A point-blank slap shot from Avs forward Sven Andrighetto seems to have caused some damage to Klefbom’s left hand. Jason Gregor has stated it’s broken fingers, and Oilers head coach Ken Hitchcock said the Swedish defender would be out “weeks, not days.” Hearing Klefbom has broken fingers…doctor will determine how serious. Where fracture is will determine if he requires surgery...

Hitchcock’s Line Combos Looking for Goals

A major theme of the early days since Ken Hitchcock replaced Todd McLellan as the Edmonton Oilers’ head coach is that ‘Hitch-Hockey’ has led to tighter team defense but the Oilers are failing to score enough five-on-five goals to win regularly. Is it true? A seven-goal explosion on Friday night against the Minnesota Wild and six more goals Tuesday against the Colorado Avalanche may have calmed some of the fears about the team’s ability to score, but more often than not with Hitchcock at th...

Are the Oilers Looking to Move Spooner Already?

Nobody is 100% certain why the Edmonton Oilers traded Ryan Strome to the New York Rangers for Ryan Spooner. My theory is that Todd McLellan wouldn’t use Strome on the wing, where he was originally slotted to play when he was acquired from the Islanders, and Oilers general manager Peter Chiarelli, in Billy Beane-like fashion, traded Strome for a more offensively inclined and faster Spooner. Was it a smart move? At this moment, it isn’t looking that way as Spooner only has one goal, but we should ...

Time for Oilers to Mortgage Some of the Future?

At the time of writing, the Edmonton Oilers are four points out of a wild-card spot as well as the top three in the Pacific Division. They’ve only played 23 games while the teams within reach of them (Anaheim, Vegas, and Vancouver) have played 25 or 26 games. Safe to say, it’s a good year to be playing in the Pacific. Does the Oilers Season Need Saving in November? I swear we deal with this same issue every season. November is a killer and has been for a few years now. If you don’t belie...

Edmonton Oilers Quarter-Season Grades: Forwards

With 21 games in the Edmonton Oilers 2018-19 NHL season in the rearview mirror, the team sits with a record of 10-10-1, good enough (or bad enough, depending on how you view things) for 21st in the standings. This after a wonderful start to the season on a tricky road trip through Europe and the Eastern Conference and then a disastrous run where the Oilers lost six of seven and head coach Todd McLellan became a casualty because of it. A quarter of the way through the season, Ken Hitchcock is now...

6 Things: Ken Hitchcock’s First Game as Oilers Coach

Ken Hitchcock was hired Tuesday morning, arrived in San Jose Tuesday afternoon and immediately got to work Tuesday evening coaching one half of the only game on the NHL schedule. Needless to say, a lot of eyes were on the new bench boss for the Edmonton Oilers in an effort to see just what this team might look like under his experienced — third-winningest coach in NHL history — eyes. Granted, there may be only so much a new coach can do with less than 24 hours to talk to the players, deliver his...
