Zack Kassian Wants Edmonton to be ‘Last Stop’ in NHL Career

Zack Kassian is using a recently signed one-year deal with the Edmonton Oilers as an audition for a longer-term contract. A slimmed-down Kassian, who has been spending the off-season chilling on the beach and riding his Harley Davidson in Santa Monica, Calif., likes the direction the team is heading and, if possible, wouldn’t mind playing the rest of his career with the Oilers...

Oilers – Again – Left Off NBC, NBC Sports

The last time the Edmonton Oilers played on NBC in the United States? June, 2006. That’s right, the Oilers haven’t been on the big network in the States for over ten years now. When was the last time the Oilers played on NBC Sports Net? Trick question, the answer is never. The Oilers haven’t played on the network since it was re-branded. In fact, since the 2005-06 season, when...

Best and Worst of the Oilers Managment

Since 2006, The Edmonton Oilers have hired four general managers to right the ship from the constant mediocrity to down right awfulness. Join me down memory lane as I look at the best trade and the worst trade from Kevin Lowe, Steve Tambellini and Craig MacTavish.  In this article, I am only focusing on the trades. I feel like for Kevin Lowe for example, it would be tough to list...

Oscar Klefbom, Adam Larsson and the Edmonton Oilers

If both players manage to stay relatively healthy throughout their NHL careers, there is no question that the Edmonton Oilers will end up on the wrong end of the Taylor Hall for Adam Larsson swap. Trading away a 24-year-old proven driver and point producer for a guy who “could” one day turn into a legit top pairing defenceman,  is a deal that has potential disaster written all...

Will Edmonton’s growing defense be enough for a playoff spot?

The best-before date on “crucial season for the Oilers,” expired long ago, but the goal is still the same for 2016-17: get back to the post-season for the first time in, now, more than a decade. Milan Lucic has replaced Taylor Hall as a top-line winger, while Jesse Puljujarvi is the latest lottery pick to bring excellent skill as a potential top-six forward. But defense is going...

Now it has come out via a report that the NHL has gotten in on the fun as well. During the RoenickLife Podcast, Milan Lucic talked about how Wayne Gretzky gave him counsel when trying to...

Oilers trade Taylor Hall to New Jersey for Adam Larsson

The Edmonton Oilers have traded star forward Taylor Hall to the New Jersey Devils in a one-for-one deal for Adam Larsson, reports Bob McKenzie of TSN.ca.
