Our long national nightmare is almost over as our beloved game is returned from the depths of boredom. We’re in a really exciting time now with the trade deadline in sight and callups on the way. Oilers fans are all too familiar with this time of year but there are good things on the way. Todd Nelson says he expects Hall in the lineup tomorrow after leaving practice early today. #Oilers — Chris Wescott (@TheChrisWescott) January 26, 2015 It was all over twitter today, Hall’s tweak and the worry, but things seem to be fine now. We talked about him on the weekend, and the gap before and after the injury is very stark: Boxcars before injury: 11gp, 6-4-10 (.909) Boxcars after i

Matt Henderson: Should Oilers Bite On Richards?

Date: 2015-01-26

Today the LA Kings put Mike Richards on waivers. He is free to any team that places a claim on him. He is experienced, has pedigree, has won at pretty much every level (including 2 recent Stanley Cups), plays Center, has been a productive player in the past, and is known for playing the kind of game that the Oilers lack. But the Edmonton Oilers should not put a claim on Mike Richards. Mike...

We are finishing a stretch of five days without any NHL regular season games, yet there has been no shortage of NHL talk, much of it grumbling.Why are so many media people and some fans still complaining about the All Star game? It will never be a competitive game, and it shouldn't be. Save yourself, and, more importantly, us from having to be inundated with your repeated complaints, and simply don't watch it.I know the game isn't competitive, it is shinny with highly skilled players, so I choose not to watch. It sounded like Columbus did a fantastic job of hosting the event, and many kids got to see their hockey heros, which is what matters.

John Shannon confirmed the Oilers have no interest in the 29-year old Center on the Waiver Wire. Just this morning the hockey world was surprised to hear the news that two time Stanley Cup champion Mike Richards was placed on waivers. This afternoon John Shannon of sportsnet confirmed that the Oilers will not be making a claim on Richards. Strike the Oilers off the list of teams that might have interest in Mike Richards. A simple "No" was the answer to the question about MR. — John Shannon (@JSportsnet) January 26, 2015 Richards will likely clear waivers as he has a cap hit of $5.75 million until 2020 but teams may still have interest in him via the trade market. If there was

Most have college defender Noah Hanifin ranked at No. 3 overall but he's not delivering a lot of offense—certainly not at the level we associate with such a high draft pick. What's the story on Noah Hanifin?

Five teams that should target Mike Richards

In a surprise move Monday, the Los Angeles Kings placed centre Mike Richards on waivers. Richards is a proven winner with two Stanley Cups, an Olympic gold medal, a Calder Cup, a Memorial Cup and a world junior gold attached to his resume. It’s not often a player of his calibre hits the waiver wire. However, since winning his first Stanley Cup with the Kings in 2012, his production has tailed off and when you couple that with his hefty price tag, it’s not necessarily a guarantee a team will claim him. Sorry, this video is not available in your country/region.

Date: 2015-01-26

With the All-Star Schmooze & Snooze Fest safely in the rear view mirror, the NHL returns to serious business today. Doesn’t get much more serious than a team trying to come to grips with an eight-figure contract on a player that has outlived his usefulness. Such is the case with the Los Angeles Kings, who today placed centre Mike Richards on waivers. This is a serious player with an eye-popping track record. To quote his Wikipedia page: Mike Richards won his first Stanley Cup on June 11, 2012 and second on June 13, 2014 with the Los Angeles Kings. Richards has won a Memorial Cup (Kitchener Rangers – Jr A), World Juniors (Team Canada IIHF), Calder Cup (Philadelphia Phantoms),

The Montreal Canadiens are the lone Eastern Conference team, while the Winnipeg Jets, Vancouver Canucks and Calgary Flames are in the top eight in the West.

Rare photo of Jim Corsi without moustacheCorsi is dead. Or at least it's on life support and waiting for us all to say our goodbyes before the plug gets pulled. That's in one form or another what Ken Campbell of the Hockey News wrote on the heels of the NHL giving Sportvision's tracking technology a pilot run during the All-Star game. Is that true? Can the beat writers who labelled it all a fad breathe a sigh of relief?
