Campbell Must Turn Around His Game for the Oilers
When it comes to the Edmonton Oilers, they are all offense all of the time. With guys like Connor McDavid, Leon Draisaitl, Evander Kane, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Zach Hyman, and Kailer Yamamoto, the puck will go in the net. The team’s offense has never really been a problem. It’s the goaltending that has hurt the Oilers. […]Read More
Time to Give Ken Holland His Roses
Not even a year ago, maybe not even six months ago, I was a Ken Holland critic, but now the time has come to give Ken Holland his flowers. Many have failed as Oilers G.M over the last 15 years, from Peter Chiarelli to Steve Tambellini, the man making the moves has continually disappointed fans […]Read More
Defense and Goaltending A Problem for the Oilers
When it comes to the Edmonton Oilers, the offense is never going to be a problem. It starts with Connor McDavid. McDavid, still just 25 years of age, leads the NHL with 73 points on 33 goals and 40 assists. McDavid is the game’s best offensive player and produces just about every single night. The […]Read More
Oilers Christmas Wishes? Nice Or Naughty?
Merry Christmas, Oilers fans. A holiday that will either distract you from how our team plays or a time to share your strong emotions with family members right beside you. I’ll be taking on the role of Santa Claus for this one. What do I have on my nice list, and what do I have […]Read More
This Week On Oilers Hockey: 11
A disappointing Oilers week this time around. A “scheduled” loss against a team they always get owned by, a “scheduled” win against a team they’ve started owning, and only one out of a possible four points against teams that are below them in the standings, one of them being the second last place team in […]Read More
Oilers: Here We Go Again?
It seems like a yearly occurrence, doesn’t it? The Oilers go through a rough patch and seemingly find themselves in a position where everyone forgets just how good they can be. As of now, they are going through it, as they’re precisely .500 in their record, Jack Campbell is having the worst start of his […]Read More
Is Dustin Schwartz Really The Problem?
As the Oilers have opened up the season with a goalie controversy only 16 games in, there has been quite a bit of finger-pointing at Dustin Schwartz. Mostly negative. Most are about how new Oiler Jack Campbell has started his season with abysmal numbers. Through 10 games this season, Jack Campbell has a record of […]Read More
This Week On Oilers Hockey: 5
The win against Pittsburgh was excellent, the loss against New Jersey resulted from a seven-second sleeper shift, and the loss against Dallas was just a no-show… That is the best way to describe this past week. I’ve talked about goaltending enough times in my last few articles. Let’s discuss secondary scoring or lack thereof. Derek […]Read More
This Week On Oilers Hockey: 3
Not the best week for the copper blue and orange, not how a fan would like to start the season with a six-game home stand, but there were some positives to look at. As funny as it is to keep seeing Brett Kulak trip on ice, leading to breakaways, it is impressive that he’s the […]Read More
Something To Prove For The Oilers
Finally, we have made it. The 2022-23 season is here, as the Oilers and Canucks gear up to play tonight. This is one of the best months in the hockey season; you finally get to see the new faces play in real games, and you see teams that could surprise and teams that may disappoint. […]Read More
