Oilers Setting the Bar Too Low

The Edmonton Oilers are a better team than they were last season. Taking a look at the standings, it’s difficult to argue otherwise.

This season, it’s becoming increasingly evident...

Trading Matt Hendricks

Elliotte Friedman stirred up the old rumour mill last Saturday when he mentioned that the Oilers could be moving on from Matt Hendricks and Benoit Pouliot.

Fayne Out, Who Steps In?

Fayne took himself out of the game in the first period after re-aggravating a leg injury that has kept him out of action for much of the season. In his absence, the Oilers made a comeback in the second period, but, ultimately fell...

Law and Order EDM: The Case For Puljujarvi’s Demotion

Jordan Eberle. That’s the only name ahead of Jesse Puljujarvi on the RW depth chart, omitting Leon Draisaitl due to his natural centre position. With that being stated, it seems I would be taking crazy pills to suggest the Oilers need to send Jesse Puljujarvi down. I’ve been very open about my reasons for Puljujarvi needing a stint in the AHL, and that I really believe Puljujarvi...

Paul Maurice: Game plans won’t work trying to stop McDavid

At 19, Connor McDavid is already one of the best players in the NHL. With an unfair combination of speed and skill, the Edmonton captain leads the league with 31 points in just 24 games. McDavid has singlehandedly kept the Oilers from mediocrity. The coach of the Winnipeg Jets recognizes the young star’s talent. Speaking with Jets TV, Paul Maurice admitted there’s no way to...

WATCH: Kris Russell crushes Tyler Motte with a huge hit

Kris Russell isn’t exactly known for his checking. Listed at 5’10” and 170 pounds, the Edmonton defenseman made plenty of noise with his surprising hit on Chicago’s Tyler Motte.
