Now that Connor's back (and better), I'm not sure if I'm more concerned for the health status of the rest of the Oilers, or the health of the staff inside the walls of Nation HQ.

NHL Trade Rumours: Latest on Schultz, Ladd, Yandle, Reimer

The NHL business landscape can change quickly. Consider the events of the past three days. New York Rangers captain Ryan McDonagh gets punched in the head. The Minnesota Wild forget how to win a hockey game. Dustin Byfuglien, the most coveted potential trade chip on the back end, signs a five-year extension to remain ice fishing in Manitoba. And the Ottawa Senators asserted themselves as a buyer by taking on Dion Phaneuf‘s contract. Though few would mistake Big Buff with a butterfly, it is interesting to see how one transaction can have a ripple effect across the league. With less than three weeks remaining until the Feb. 29 trade deadline, we take a look at the latest rumours circula

Why Phaneuf trade will only help challenged Senators

Well, at least one Canadian team is going for it. While the Habs, Flames, Jets, Oilers and Canucks rub their foreheads raw over the possibility of doing something big to enhance their playoff chances, the Ottawa Senators actually did something substantial today, adding to the drama by doing it with the assistance of their provincial rivals from Toronto. Whatever the Sens saw in 23 minutes from Dion Phaneuf on Saturday night while they were laying a whipping on the Maple Leafs obviously appealed to them, as three days later the 30-year-old defenceman is now part of Ottawa’s effort to make a second half charge for a Stanley Cup playoff berth, just as they did last year. It’s a massive nine

Oilers coach hopes his team will be in road-trip salvage mode tonight against Devils

NEWARK, N.J. — Against the backdrop of Martin Brodeur sweater retirement night and with defenceman Justin Schultz in the press box, the Edmonton Oilers have one last chance to redeem themselves before heading back to Edmonton. They can still salvage a .500 road trip if they beat the New Jersey Devils tonight and, perhaps more importantly, wash away the bitter taste of 5-1 and 8-1 losses in Montreal and Brooklyn. “We haven’t gone .500 on a road trip in quite a while, so it would be big for our group,” said Oilers goaltender Cam Talbot. “We’ve been pretty solid at home, but it has to translate into road wins, too. We have to find a way to kick it up another notch. “They’re goin

Trade Rumour: Justin Schultz won't dress for the Oilers tonight, could be headed out of town

Could Justin Schultz be traded today? This morning Oilers play-by-play man Jack Michaels tweeted that Justin Schultz would not be in the Oilers lineup tonight when the team takes on the New Jersey Devils. After a pair of ugly losses over the weekend, games in which Schultz repeatedly looked awful, it was hardly surprising that Schultz would get a night off to watch the press box. There might be a little more to this though, as Renaud Lavoie is reporting, Schultz's omission from the Oilers lineup could be trade related. Hearing that #oilers Justin Schultz being scratch tonight vs #devils might be trade related. #tvasports — Renaud Lavoie (@renlavoietva) February 9, 2016 Why it

Twitter reaction: Dion Phaneuf trade sends hockey world into frenzy

Date: 2016-02-09

It’s Shrove Tuesday (aka Pancake Tuesday) and the Toronto Maple Leafs and Ottawa Senators served up a fat stack of “WOW!” to hockey fans as Dion Phaneuf now sees himself on the other side of the Battle of Ontario. In a nine-player swap, the Maple Leafs sent their captain plus forwards Matt Frattin, Casey Bailey, Ryan Rupert and defensive prospect Cody Donaghey to the Sens in exchange for forwards Colin Greening, Milan Michalek, Tobias Lindberg, defenceman Jared Cowen and a second-round pick in the 2017 NHL Draft. The last time the #Leafs traded a Captain (Doug Gilmour to the #NJDevils in 1997), Lou Lamoriello was the GM on the receiving end. — Sportsnet Stats (@SNstats) February

GDB 55.0: Honouring Brodeur

Date: 2016-02-09

Martin Brodeur will have his #30 jersey raised to the rafters tonight, and the Oilers will have the pleasure of watching the Devils honour the winningest goalie in NHL history.Brodeur only played the Oilers 18 times, finishing with nine wins, six losses, one overtime loss and two ties, which wasn't very much compared to how often he faced the New York Rangers (101), Philadelphia Flyers (92) and New York Islanders (91).I'm certain Oilers fans respect Brodeur's accomplishments, but the fact Justin Schultz is a healthy scratch tonight will garner much more chatter among the faithful of the Blue and Orange.
