What are the Oilers getting with Anthony Stolarz?

On Friday night, the Oilers finally announced a move that had been rumoured for a few days. They sent veteran goaltender Cam Talbot to the Philadelphia Flyers in exchange for 25-year-old Anthony Stolarz. The Flyers selected Stolarz in the second round of the 2012 NHL Draft and he is currently in his fifth professional season. He strikes me as a goalie who is getting to the ‘make-or-break’ portion of his career. Stolarz has the physical makeup of a modern number one goalie. He’s listed at

Ken Hitchock’s Oilers future could depend on a more ‘positive’ tone

The lights go on, the roster is the roster and the results are becoming all too predictable. Edmonton lost 5-2 to the New York Islanders Saturday, t
