2017-2018 Oilers Season: You Want it Darker

2017-2018 Oilers Season: You Want it Darker

Billions of Losses That wasn’t fun. The Oilers entered the season as Stanley Cup favorites in many people’s eyes, and finished the season in 23rd place with a dismal 78 points. They couldn’t get wins when it mattered, they had trouble scoring goals, and the special teams were an even more special kind of awful. As many of you know, I love my analogies — This post will be littered with them. When I see things happen, I almost always relate it to just about everything else I’ve ever se

Oilers year end report card

My friends, it’s been a while since we’ve ranked the Oilers in an up-or-down style report card and with the season wrapped up, I wanted to get your thoughts on how everyone did. Obviously, if you’ve ever filled out one of these reports cards you’ll know that this isn’t the most scientific way to evaluate the players and coaches, but I still find it interesting to see how the list shakes out. Even though this is just a yay or nay style poll, I’m always interested in finding out who m

AHL Game 68: Reign at Condors

Jesse Puljujarvi was the most successful recall this season by the Edmonton Oilers. Fans got to see the big Finn, a surprising 20-year old defender and a veteran winger still trying to break into the show at age 25. It’s not close to where it needs to be but the Condors sent their best to the show. THE ATHLETIC! Great offer! Includes a free 7-day trial so you can try The Athletic on for size free and see if they enjoy the in-depth, ad-free coverage on the site. Offer is here. New Lowetid

Desperate times for a desperate man

The Oilers need to be careful not to blow things up this summer, Peter Chiarelli even said that at his year availability. They need to improve next year, no doubt about it, but they also have to be careful. They’re a team that will be tight up against the cap and with another expansion draft looming, they can’t sacrifice too much of their future for immediate results. That’s my thought process because I want the Oilers to have long-term success. I would much rather see the team set themse

At The Cult of Hockey: Coaching changes are imminent behind the Edmonton Oilers bench

At The Cult of Hockey: Coaching changes are imminent behind the Edmonton Oilers bench

Change is coming to the Edmonton Oilers coaching staff. I strongly believe that Todd Mclellan will be back behind the bench, to begin 2018-19, but that the men standing in suits around him will look very different. The first casualty is Assistant Coach Jim Johnson. While I am told by once source that in fact he has already been released from his current position, what I know for a fact is that Johnson was relieved of his duties on the Oilers PK, probably sometime around late January, early Febr

The Burger King Speaks

The Burger King Speaks

One day after Peter Chiarelli’s year-end press conference, organizational ghost and burger expert Bob Nicholson held a press conference of his own. It was revelatory insofar as it said nothing and yet said so much at the same time. The 2017-18 campaign was disappointing right from Game 2 through Game 82. There were flashes of brilliance (thanks Connor!), but for the most part the team was underwhelming. Fast forward to yesterday, when Bobby Nicks thought he was going to be able to equivocate
