OILERS RECALL OSCAR KLEFBOM

The Edmonton Oilers recalled defenseman Oscar Klefbom today, as they placed Benoit Pouliot on the IR. ALL Oilers transactions at this point are going to be followed closely with an eye to the big trade. Klefbom has played very well in OKC this year (9GP, 1-7-8 +10) but has been uneven in his NHL time (2GP, 0-0-0 -2). It has been assumed that Klefbom would be a big part of Edmonton’s future blue, so a trade seems unlikely. During his short NHL career, Klefbom has been paired most often with Justin Schultz.

Enforcers don’t deter cheap shots, Edmonton Oilers edition

One of the Edmonton Oilers’ (many) dilemmas this season is what to do with heavyweight enforcer Luke Gazdic. In previous eras, that wouldn’t even be a question; the Oilers would be playing Gazdic every night and be glad to have him. But times are changing, as teams move away from single-purpose enforcers and the prominence of fighting in the game continues to decline. The age of the enforcer is not yet over, but it is rapidly nearing its end and in these transitional years the presence of single-purpose players like Gazdic (who despite his exceptional speed lacks the necessary defensive awareness/ability with the puck to play a regular shift in the NHL) is a hot point for the Oilers and

Follow me on Twitter @ToddCordell Late Tuesday night reports came out from TSN's Aaron Ward and Blue Jackets beat writer Aaron Portzline that the Oilers and Blue Jackets were involved in trade discussions, presumably centering around David Perron and Artem Anisimov. As I wrote at the time, on first glance a potential deal between the two sides makes a lot of sense. With Ryan Johansen, Brando...

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
