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

The Edmonton Oilers held a season ticket seat holder breakfast event on Monday morning. By most of the accounts **, the event was appreciated. It also didn’t sway many from their decision not to renew their season seats for next year. With a number of fans looking at three percent increases on the prices of their seats from last season but the Edmonton Oilers a team that will now have to pretty much run the table in their last ten games to make the postseason, there is a strong appetite not to...

2011 NHL Entry Draft: Five Forgotten Picks

The 2011 NHL Entry Draft in St. Paul is notable for a number of reasons. First, it was the second of three straight drafts the Edmonton Oilers picked first overall, selecting Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. Second, it’s notable for being where True North Sports & Entertainment, which bought the Atlanta Thrashers a month earlier, revealed they would call their team the Jets and made their first-ever pick, selecting — controversially at the time — Mark Scheifele over Sean Couturier. Third, it’s notable for t...

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...

Draisaitl willing to trade his career-high goal total for an Oilers playoff spot

TORONTO — Leon Draisaitl's in the midst of a career season, but he would give it up if it meant his Edmonton Oilers were playoff bound.Draisaitl's power-play goal gave the Oilers an early lead before Edmonton was overwhelmed in a 6-2 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs on Wednesday night. That extended Draisaitl's point streak to eight games and brought his goal total up to 39, already 10 better than his previous scoring high in 2016-17, but the Oilers slipped further back in the Paci...

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...

Edmonton Oilers’ forward Leon Draisaitl has established himself as one of the most dangerous offensive weapons in the NHL.

Nugent-Hopkins Most Memorable Oilers Moments

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.

Edmonton Oilers and the 50 Shades of Extreme

If you’re an Edmonton Oilers fan, you probably feel and know well the swings that come with being an Edmonton Oilers fan. Either the “sky is falling” or the “team is on its way to finally contend for the Stanley Cup” but, not often, is there an in-between. These days, that feeling is even more present as the team is making “knee-jerk” trades, has lost six-of-seven games, suffering due to injuries and there are questions about management and whether or not the general manager can be trusted to ri...

Oilers Shuffling Deck Chairs, Trade for Alex Petrovic

With a five-game losing streak staring them square in the face, injuries starting to play a toll and still little to no scoring from the bottom half of the roster, the Edmonton Oilers, namely general manager Peter Chiarelli, needed to do something.

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...
