How is it possible that Dallas Eakins changed his coaching style so much?On Tuesday against the Dallas Stars, Justin Schultz finally found himself stapled to the bench, his ice time slashed from what he's become used to. At long last, Nikita Nikitin was scratched against Chicago after a dreadful start to the year. It took Dallas Eakins a quarter of the season to see what most fans could see after a half-dozen games. Or did it?Eakins came to the Oilers from the Toronto Marlies, and in his time there he wasn't exactly known as a foolish man. Nor did he pull punches when players weren't up to snuff. When Nazem Kadri showed up to camp out of shape, Eakins publicly called him out, demanded better

How does a goalie coach help your team? I don't know the answer, so I tried to find the answer. Ron Tugnutt was drafted by the Quebec Nordiques in the 4th round of the 1986 NHL entry draft. He played in the NHL from 1988 to 2004 for Quebec, Edmonton, Anaheim, Montreal, Ottawa, Pittsburgh, Columbus and Dallas. He also spent time in the AHL.

Oilers Coaching & Front Office Turnover Since 2006

Date: 2014-11-26

Sorting through the wreckage of the last 9 years Off to their second-worst start in the 9 years since they made the NHL playoffs, the Edmonton Oilers fired their goaltending coach, reminding many of the time that Steve Tambellini blamed a trainer and two equipment men for his own failures.  It got us thinking about the churn the Oilers' front office and coaching staff has gone through since the team last made the playoffs.  Sure, Ken Lowe, Sparky Kulchisky and Barrie Stafford became a punchline at Steve Tambellini's expense, but they're just the tip of the iceberg. Since 2006, the Oilers have fired: 2 General Managers (Kevin Lowe, Steve Tambellini) 2 Assistant General Managers (Kevin

It’s important to point out that buying low and selling high is part of most fantasy hockey leagues, but the degree to which it occurs varies among these leagues. There are some leagues where fantasy owners won’t give today’s full value for a player, and there are some leagues where fantasy owners will give more than full value. Each league is different, and only the owners in the league will know how their league mates behave. Here are some players to buy low and sell high on. Buy Low David Perron – 2 goals, 11 assists, minus-9 rating; 965 PDO Perron scored 28 goals and tallied 57 points last year, both of which were career highs. Maybe he was due for a bit of regression, but he

David Perron isn’t the only former St. Louis Blues forward who could be on the move. Both the Winnipeg Jets and Chicago Blackhawks have interest in trading for Buffalo Sabres winger Chris Stewart, according to St. Louis reporter Andy Strickland: Andy Strickland on Twitter The 27-year-old Stewart has been the subject of trade rumours the moment he was dealt from St. Louis to Buffalo at the 2014 trade deadline, and he has done little to increase his market value. In 26 games with the Sabres, the Ontario native has registered one goal and one assist, while taking 18 minutes in penalties and posting a minus-14 rating.

They were hiding behind hay bales, They were planting in the full moon They had given all they had for something new But the light of day was on them, They could see the thrashers coming And the water shone like diamonds in the dew. (Neil Young) The team built with the Hall—Eberle—Nuge—Paajarvi cluster is not alive, and we can see the thrashers coming. By this time tomorrow, there’s every chance the Oilers will have their No. 2 center. A team that needs help everywhere but wing will address one need, hope for the best at G and D and we expect it’ll turn out the same. David Perron’s Oilers career is best reflected by the crossbar hit with 10 seconds to go: It should ha
