Blackhawks crush Oilers

At the morning skate on Saturday, Edmonton Oilers coach Dallas Eakins cleared his throat for almost eight minutes (7:43) — the chapter and verse not loud enough so the media could hear his pointed words to his struggling players — but it was obvious it was a stern message, nevertheless. Eakins, wouldn’t repeat what he said, joking instead “you’ll have to read about it in my book.” But the beleaguered coach should have said “try to keep it under 10” or “try not to get me fired,” because whatever he told his team in the morning went in one ear and out the other once the puck was dropped against the Chicago Blackhawks, who hammered the

EDMONTON — Marian Hossa had a goal and three assists and Jonathan Toews added a pair of goals as the Chicago Blackhawks scored early and often in a 7-1 drubbing of the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday. Marcus Kruger, Kris Versteeg, Duncan Keith and Patrick Kane also scored for the Blackhawks (12-7-1), who have won three in a row and five of their last six. David Perron replied for the Oilers (6-13-2), who have lost six games in a row and seven straight on home ice. Edmonton has yet to win a game against Western Conference opponents, dropping to 0-10-1. The Blackhawks took complete control of the game in the early stages with two goals on their first two shots. Four minutes into the first pe

Status of Magnus Paajarvi

Status of Magnus Paajarvi     Last night while I was watching the Blues play the Bruins , I for some reason started thinking about Magnus Paajarvi and his situation with the Blues. So far this season he has been a healthy scratch and hasn’t seen a minute of ice time yet. I honestly do not see him playing for Blues this year unless a series of injuries occur. He really wasn’t that impressive last year, he did score a couple goals and brought some speed to the team but other than that he was a just another guy out there on the ice.  Let’s just say he is not a David Perron caliber player LOL.      The Oilers traded Magnus Paajarvi and a second round pi

Oilers LOSE again!

The Oilers lose again! 0-9-1 against the West   Im not the expert on winning and losing but im pretty sure you need to win more games in your own conference/division in order to have a winning record and making the playoffs. What is so different about the West game that the Oilers just cant seem to crack? They are now 0-9-1 against the Western conference and have an east team coming in on Friday night. I think people may be jumping the gun by saying "We'll get Friday's game" thinking that we are impeccable against the East. Overall we are 6-1-1 against the East. The problem is that we are located in the Western part of North America and we have to play more games against our own co

Have a gander at that picture above. That's what's going to cause change in this Oilers organization. Nothing else. Only empty seats have that power.I understand that people have paid for their tickets and they're not just going to waste them, especially season ticket holders who have often waited long periods to get their hands on some. So let's not get too far into the conversation about people skipping the games entirely. But the fans have to send a real message to management, ownership, and the hockey world in the best forum that they can: Rexall Place.So show up late. Skip the first period, or if you can stomach it, don't show up at all.I know what you're thinking: what if the Oilers li

Oilers desperate for deal, won’t move core pieces

Source: SportsNet
Date: 2014-11-23

The Edmonton Oilers are desperate to make a trade, but they remain uninterested in dealing their young core players, according to Sportsnet’s Damien Cox and Elliotte Friedman. The Oilers have gotten off to a slow start in 2014-15. They currently sit in last place in the Western Conference with just six wins and 14 points in 20 games. Edmonton could use help everywhere but the most logical position to upgrade would be on the back end, as the club has the worst goal differential in the conference (minus-19), and only the Dallas Stars have allowed more goals than Edmonton in their conference. The difficulty for Edmonton would be acquiring a substantial upgrade without dealing a core play

Oilers Gameday – Vs. Blackhawks

Date: 2014-11-23

Quick post tonight as I am travelling home today for the holiday on Thursday here in the States. Edmonton concludes their five game home-stand tonight by hosting the Chicago Blackhawks in the first meeting between the sides this season. Edmonton has lost all four at home so far, and have lost five in a row overall. Meanwhile, Chicago is coming off of a win earlier this week against the Calgary Flames. Edmonton lost their last game, a 2-0 decision against the New Jersey Devils. Game Notes: * Oiler forward Benoit Pouliot broke his foot blocking a shot last night and will miss five to six weeks with the injury. He’ll be placed on IR by the Oilers, likely on Sunday. * Defender Nikita Nikit

Oilers talk change, but repeat same mistakes

Rome is burning here in Edmonton and head coach Dallas Eakins stopped fiddling around with defenceman Nikita Nikitin, making him a healthy scratch just 21 games into his two-year, $9 million deal.   Tonight the Oilers host Chicago in the fifth and final game of a homestand that has produced but a single point thus far, an OT loss to Ottawa. Head coach Dallas Eakins had his entire team out for some power play work at Saturday morning skate after a 2-0 loss to New Jersey on Friday evening, but the roughly 15-minute practice was matched in length by an on-ice team meeting. After that, the entire team exited the Rexall Place ice en mass. More NHL on Sportsnet: Subscribe: Rogers GameCentre Live
