The Oklahoma City Barons, the American Hockey League affiliate of the Edmonton Oilers, announced Thursday it will cease operations at the end of the 2014-15 season. The decision comes after the Barons were unable to complete a new affiliation agreement with the Oilers; the current deal expires at the end of the season. The Barons have been the Oilers’ AHL affiliate since the 2010-11 AHL season. “The players, coaches and fans of the OKC Barons have been outstanding partners to our organization as our development team affiliate,” Oilers Entertainment Group president and COO Patrick LaForge said in a press release. “We have enjoyed a solid working relationship with the City of O

Ferraro has a lot to say about the Oilers, it's not all positives, and it's not all wrong.

NHL Trade Rumors: Latest Buzz Surrounding Taylor Hall and More

Date: 2014-12-18

It’s not every day that a 23-year-old talent who is fresh off an 80-point season is on the trading block in the NHL as early as December, but that appears to possibly be the case for Taylor Hall and the Edmonton Oilers. Edmonton is a dreadful 7-19-6 and has no real hope of sniffing the postseason, so it comes as no surprise that it may want to shake up the roster. However, Hall is an asset that a number of contending teams would likely love to have on the left wing. With that in mind, here is a look at some of the latest rumors from around the NHL, including a glimpse into the Boston Bruins’ chances at landing Hall.   Taylor Hall Joe Haggerty of CSNNE.com passed along an up

Kellen & Connor Jones Returned To Bakersfield

Photo by Steven Christy After a brief, and I mean very brief, stint with the Oklahoma City Barons, the team has moved Kellen and Connor Jones back to Bakersfield of the ECHL. The twins will meet up with the Condors in Alaska. The call-up was a weird one. One that took place during a tumultuous time for the Oklahoma City Barons and Edmonton Oilers. Todd Nelson would be named the interim head coach of the Oilers, the twins would play a few games, and lost in the shuffle is likely how well they fared in AHL minutes. Nonethless, Kellen, the Oilers draft pick, would get at least two games (and play once without his brother) while Connor only logged time in one game. Kellen scored a pretty fantas

Why can’t the Oilers score goals? A few reasons: The power play is daft, the top line isn’t together and injuries have impacted most of the top end of the roster. The loss of Benoit Pouliot robbed the team of badly needed speed among the forward group (this isn’t Steve Kelly’s Oilers) and of course they simply don’t have enough centermen to cover all these good wingers (Edmonton has a few of them). OILERS SCORING LAST 10 GAMES Ryan Nugent-Hopkins 10, 3-3-6 Taylor Hall 10, 0-5-5 David Perron 10, 3-2-5 Teddy Purcell 10, 1-4-5 Jordan Eberle 10, 2-1-3 Jeff Petry 10, 2-1-3 Leon Draisaitl 10, 0-2-2 Justin Schultz 9, 0-2-2 Nail Yakupov 10, 1-0-1 Mark Arcobello 10, 1-0

NHL Power Rankings: Stocking Stuffer Edition

Despite their penchant for hot streaks (and, yes, cold dips too), we would not have predicted we’d ever bump the Toronto Maple Leafs all the way to the top three in our NHL Power Rankings this season. But when you respond to two ugly losses with a tear of 10-1-1 and cruise along smoothly while two other Canadian teams axe their head coaches and your sparkplug (Leo Komarov) gets sidelined with a concussion, it’s time to give it up. More impressive than the wins — shot clock be damned, of course — are the teams those wins have come against. Tampa Bay. Anaheim. Los Angeles. Detroit three times in a row. Of those 10 victories, only one (versus Dallas) came against a team
