Oilers PTO Targets Revealed!

Click the pic above to check out our merch!Plan the parade! The troops are coming! Today I was contacted by one of my sources with regards to the players that Edmonton is looking at offering PTOs to. They aren’t really huge surprises and if you’ve had your ear to the ground you probably know who they are already. But before we get into who those players are I have to tell you first that the information I receive is just as likely to fail to materialize than come true. Treat it like water co

Can Bruins Capitalize on Oilers’ Injury Trouble?

Can Bruins Capitalize on Oilers’ Injury Trouble?

Desperate times call for desperate measures. Desperate times could be exactly the phrase necessary to describe the situation the Edmonton Oilers are in following the news that defender Andrej Sekera would be out indefinitely with a torn Achilles tendon. With a defense that already looked porous without the 32-year-old Slovakian for much of the 2017-18 season, the Oilers are in a situation where they’re likely going to have to make a move to fill this whole sooner than later. Edmonton Oilers

Edmonton Oilers 2018 Top 25 Under 25: #16 Cooper Marody

The eventual return for Maroon As I’m sure we remember all too vividly, the Edmonton Oilers were really, really bad last season. Because they were so bad, they didn’t hold on to pending UFA Patrick Maroon for a non-existent playoff run, they instead shipped him to New Jersey in exchange for a 3rd round pick. At first I didn’t think that return was enough, but as the deadline passed, it sure looked like a slower rental market than typical deadlines. With that third pick, the Oilers looked

As per Wednesday tradition, I jumped on the 95.7 Cruz FM airwaves to talk to the boys at The Locker Room about all things Andrej Sekera and what’s next for the Edmonton Oilers. This week, as you’d expect, the major topic of conversation for this week’s appearance was surrounding the Andrej Sekera injury that came out yesterday. Not only did he suffer a devasting Achilles injury while training for the upcoming season, he also, as we all remember, was trying to come back from last season’

Oilers’ already-shaky blueline in deep trouble with Sekera sidelined indefinitely

Andrej Sekera can’t catch a break, and it appears neither can the Edmonton Oilers. After piecing together an excellent 2016-17 campaign, one in which he was roundly considered the best blueliner on what was seen as an up-and-coming Oilers squad, Sekera found himself sidelined throughout last summer and well into last season due to recovery from off-season ACL surgery. It wasn’t until late-December that Sekera was able to return, and after a facial injury, foot ailment and another knock to h

The Top 7 reasons why I'm not so worried about Andrej Sekera's latest injury woes

The Top 7 reasons why I'm not so worried about Andrej Sekera's latest injury woes

The Top 7 reasons why I’m not so worried about Andrej Sekera’s latest injury woes: Sekera already couldn’t be counted on this year. While Sekera was easily the Oil’s best d-man in 2016-17, it was rash to count on him being that player again. It was unlikely he could regain that kind of form. Yes, it can take more than a year for a player to bounce back from knee injury and major surgery, but Sekera is also 32, an age when the performance of NHLers often drops off due to age and injury.
