Oilers Vs. Coyotes – Game Recap

Date: 2014-10-02

The Oilers and Coyotes met at Rexall Place earlier tonight in a pre-season match-up that featured two division rivals prepping for the upcoming season. Both teams were missing key cogs, the Yotes missing Gagner, Yandle and Ekman-Larsson, and the Oilers missing Hall, Nugent-Hopkins and Fayne. The result? Two teams with a lot of players looking to make an impact and make the NHL roster. The Game: The Oilers opened the game by really controlling the first twenty minutes of play. Edmonton out-shot the Coyotes by a 17-8 margin, and the Oil got the best of the chances as well. That said, the Yotes opened the scoring 10:07 into the game as Mikkel Boedker beat Scrivens in tight off of a feed by Conn

New chance in Arizona for former Edmonton Oilers goalie Devan Dubnyk

Devan Dubnyk’s net worth last season was so low, he was ready for the loonie bin. He went from being the Edmonton Oilers’ No. 1 goalie to a band-aid in the crease in Nashville for a few short weeks then to being unceremoniously traded again for future considerations to the Montreal Canadiens, with whom he found himself fighting for playing time on the Habs’ farm team in Hamilton.

Drew Doughty is right. Corsi is indeed “crap” for rating individual players.

Here’s what the world’s best hockey player, Drew Doughty, told reporters on Tuesday about using Corsi (shots at net plus-minus) to rate ind. players: “Yeah. I think that Corsi thing is a bunch of crap, personally. That’s not to take away from Muzz being the top guy in the league, because you know Muzz is a really good player. He’s improved so much over the last few years. He’s just going to improve even more and become better. Me and Muzz have it in our minds that we’re going to be one of the best D-pairings in the league one day, so we’re going to work towards that.” Doughty is right in his assessment of Corsi. It’s a good stat to rate a team of players or a

Ideal Homes for the Best Players on the NHL Waiver Wire Ahead of 2014-15 Season

Date: 2014-10-01

Another day, another slew of fringe NHL players available on the waiver wire. It’s an interesting time for waivers, because there’s still a week to go before the start of the season, and the majority of teams aren’t down to their final cuts just yet. But as St. Louis Blues beat reporter Andy Strickland notes, that actually makes this time of year ideal for teams to try and slide guys through waivers: Strickland’s tweet was on the heels of the Blues’ decision to demote Chris Butler, who played all 82 games for Calgary last year and ranked high in our evaluation of Monday’s waiver wire. It’s an interesting comment, though, because once again the Blues

The pre-season rolls on tonight as Edmonton hosts Arizona, and former Oiler Sam Gagner, at Rexall Place. It’ll be the third of four pre-season tilts at the old barn, and the third to last game for Edmonton in training camp. Arizona has been travelling quite a bit this pre-season, and has spent some time in Western Canada in the past week. Edmonton enters this game just a day after trimming their roster by five players, all of whom were assigned to the Oklahoma City Barons of the AHL. The Last Game: Edmonton: The Oilers hosted Winnipeg on Monday night at Rexall Place and handled the Jets for forty minutes. Mark Fayne opened the scoring with a goal top-shelf thanks to a beautiful feed f
