The Hurricanes role into town tonight and the Oilers look to turn this thing into an actually Winning streak. After an excellent performance against the Tampa Bay Lightning they were thoroughly outplayed by the Capitals but still found a way to win. The 3rd period in particular was just the Oilers enduring wave after wave of Washington's attack. GOALTENDING There's no question that the Ben...

Martin Marincin, Jesse Joensuu hot for Edmonton Oilers, Taylor Hall, Mark Fayne, Jordan Eberle not.

When it comes to two-way play, Martin Marincin, Jesse Joensuu, Boyd Gordon, and Nikita Nikitin are off to strong starts with the Edmonton Oilers. Not so hot right now are Mark Arcobello, Jordan Eberle, Taylor Hall, Mark Fayne and Andrew Ference, at least if you go by individual scoring chances as rough proxy for two-way play*. The play of Joensuu and Gordon has been a bright light at forward. They have the tough task of taking a lot of defensive zone faceoffs, but still have good scoring chance differentials. Joensuu has had the best run of his Oilers career. He’s protecting the puck well, hitting, winning pucks on the boards and making generally sound defensive decisions, though it

HURRICANES AT OILERS G8 2014-15

Date: 2014-10-24

The Edmonton Oilers are 2-4-1 and have an excellent chance to win three in a row and settle down their season during this 7-game homestand. Carolina played the Flames last night, and they look ass (in the words of my son) in all areas. The Oilers should win this game handily. If they exit tonight 3-4-1, the club will be on pace to finish with 72 points—a disappointment, I had them pegged at 87—and return to “Tom Renney in year two” levels. As important, their overall possession numbers are stronger this fall and sustaining them through the year may end up being the best part of 2014-15. The corgi’s should be barking at the Hurricanes tonight. Leon is counting down to

Oilers fans were thrilled when Leon Draisaitl was selected in the first round (No. 3 overall) at the 2014 Entry Draft. A team that had been adding high picks since 2010 finally had their big man in the middle, and the German Draisaitl boasted impressive pedigree. Four months later, I don't think anyone questions his ability, but his NHL-readiness is an issue.

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins – Taking The Step?

Date: 2014-10-24

Over the summer we heard Craig MacTavish call Taylor Hall a star player. This is something that anyone who has ever paid attention to the Oilers knows already as a fact, this was simply just a statement by the GM that led into something a little bit bigger, a challenge. Our friend Lowetide posted a quote today from the summer that got me thinking, it was from the GM, and it went a little something like this… (Nuge and Eberle) have a lot of room for growth. … We need to see whether they’re going to be good players or whether they’re going to be star players This quote was a challenge in my mind to these guys back in the summer to take the next step. For Jordan Eberle, it’s y

After wrapping up a practice session that was sandwiched between the Edmonton Oilers second victory of the season and their next home game, there was plenty of discourse about the work that still has to be done. And rightly so, the team is just 2-4-1. But after slogging through the first five games without a victory, it was seemingly a little easier going about the tasks at hand after defeating the Tampa Bay Lightning and the Washington Capitals.
