Oilers wise to steer clear of Josh Harding

There were more than a few Edmonton Oilers fans that were hoping to hear news of their club placing in a claim for Minnesota Wild netminder Josh Harding on Tuesday morning. Unfortunately for them, Craig MacTavish did not take the bait but to be perfectly honest, the Oilers general manager made the right call on taking a pass on the thirty year old native of Regina, Saskatchewan.

Justin Schultz is a mediocre offensive defenceman, but he’s not getting a lot of help

Oilers among NHL’s worst teams for offence from blueline Edmonton Oilers defenceman Justin Schultz is often a lightning rod for criticism, but there’s no denying the fact that he is by far the squad’s best offensive threat from the blueline. Replace “best” with “only” and you’re not too far removed from the truth. A year ago Schultz mustered 33 points in 74 games to rank in a 5-way tie for 38th in NHL scoring. Similarly his 12 powerplay points ranked him in an 8-way tie for 39th. Both rankings are outside the top 30 one might expect for the team’s top player in any league stat, and a far cry from the upper half of that top 30 where the el

Matt Henderson: G19 Oilers vs Canucks: This Is Spinal Tap

Coach Dallas Eakins spoke yesterday about turning up the volume in games. He wasn’t talking about fans getting louder, he was talking about the team showing more intensity, tenacity, and intelligence. It was about making better decisions with authority. In a statement I completely agree with he said that last year the volume was at roughly a “2” and they needed to get to “8” in order to...

Welcome to The Week In Review According To Me (TWIRATOME), a regular Monday feature that sometimes appears on Tuesday or Wednesday when I’m lazy or cranky, breaking down the week that was for the Edmonton Oilers. Most weeks might take on the feel of an autopsy, sifting through symptoms and clues to determine the cause of disaster, but all are worthy of examination before moving forward. What...

CANUCKS AT OILERS G19, 2014-15

Tonight at Rexall the Edmonton Oilers will once again attempt to beat a western conference team. It can’t be that tough, Buffalo did it last night! Coach Dallas Eakins spoke the other day about process and success with the process. He says it’s good, but it’s time to win games. Eakins:  “It’s time now. We’ve shown that we can play with teams. We’ve shown that we can out-play teams. We’ve showed that we can get both points and we have to turn the heat on now. It’s time to turn the heat up on ourselves, for the result.”  The Oilers are currently 16th in 5×5 Corsi (50.63) and for me that’s a major item in this season. One hopes for 35 wins and a st

Who says no to a ‘change of scenery’ goalie trade: the Edmonton Oilers or the Toronto Maple Leafs?

Date: 2014-11-19

It’s no secret that the Edmonton Oilers’ decision to go with two promising but unproven goaltenders in net has not worked out the way the team would like. Ben Scrivens has struggled in the starting role, going 4-7-1 with a 0.899 save percentage, while backup Viktor Fasth has been worse, posting a 2-3-1 line with a 0.885 save percentage. Meanwhile, Toronto Maple Leafs backup goaltender James Reimer has fallen on hard times, too. Long touted as a potential starter, Reimer allowed six goals on 25 shots against Nashville on Tuesday, dropping his record to 4-3-0 on the year and his save percentage to 0.898. Given that all three goalies have a track record of relative success but are strugglin

11/19/14 Replace Draisaitl With Anyone

Date: 2014-11-19

At the beginning of the season, the words on everybody's lips were "you can't send Draisaitl down because there's nobody who could take his place on the team". I like Draisaitl, just like everybody else, but right now he could be replaced by almost any actual NHL center.After Tuesday night's NHL games, Draisaitl is 111th in points by centers, 131st in points per 60 minutes of even strength ice time by centers with ten or more games played, he's losing the possession battle despite pillowy soft opponents and zone starts, and his ice time has steadily decreased since the end of October so that now he's playing less than ten minutes a night.I'm not trying to pile on the guy, but it's time to ma
