Plenty has been said about how Nail Yakupov plays when he doesn’t have the puck, but what is he like when he’s got it on his stick? He was the Edmonton Oilers’ first overall pick in 2012 because he could score, not because he could check. He had 80 goals in 107 Ontario Hockey League games during his last two seasons with the Sarnia Sting.

Speaking of legends of the fall, was it just a year ago that October was the cruellest month for the Edmonton Oilers and Eskimos? Why yes, it certainly was, the Eskimos going 0-4 in October 2013, outscored 117-75 in those games on their way to a 4-14 nightmare Canadian Football League season.

Touching up on the Oilers and Connor McDavid

SHATTERED PUCK - SHATTERED DREAMS   I still cant believe how Connor McDavid assaulted a puck so badly that it shattered into 8 pieces. Its funny because this has never been seen before. I mean from Al Macinnis to Al Iafrate to Shea Weber and to Zdeno Chara - All grown men who can shoot the puck well over a 100 MPH. So how have they never shattered a puck before? Or maybe they have but it hasnt been documented, either way Connor McDavid is a really really special kid and whoever ends up with him (probably the 'Canes) will be set for decade(s) to come. This is a shattered dream in some sense for Oilers fans. We have seen the Oilers come back from the dead in the past 2 weeks and put

Marc-Olivier Roy turns 20 five days from now and should be dominating his final QMJHL season. At first glance, the boxcars don’t look exceptional, he’s below a point-per-game and doesn’t seem to be a feature player offensively. This follows a very quick exit from training camp. TRAINING CAMP CUTS 2013 AND 2014 Among first cuts 2013. Impressed in Penticton. Among first cuts 2014. He went far too gently into that good night for my liking. Disappointment. Full stop. FIRST GAMES 2013 AND 2014 2013-14 first 12 games: 2-12-14 2014-15 first 12 games: 4-6-10 It’s early, he’s on a new team and I think it’s reasonable to expect a period of adjustment. I’m

When he was at Edmonton Oilers training camp, rookie Iiro Pakarinen, who is one of the best American Hockey League players through the first month of play, didn’t blink an eye when asked how he’d take going to Oklahoma City to play for $70,000 when he maybe could have made three times that to play back in Finland.
