Oilers pick Ryan McLeod is bringing a complete game

Last season, the OHL’s Mississauga Steelheads won just two of their first 10 games, despite being a pre-season favorite to be a top team in the Eastern Conference. Despite a lot of talent, the vibe was off. The Steelheads rebounded enough to make the playoffs, but fell to Barrie in the first round. What a […] The post Oilers pick Ryan McLeod is bringing a complete game appeared first on TheHockeyNews.

180 by Summer

Expectations of this season for Oilers fans and observers varies wildly. Some believe the team will fall flat, finishing with fewer than 75 points.

But it’s amazing how winning can help quell any and all fan frustration. The Oilers played the Rangers to a hard fought 2-1 matinee game at Madison Square Gardens, but it wasn’t an easy victory by any means. Things could have gone much different

Edmonton Oilers right wing scoring from Rattie, Yamamoto and Puljujarvi has evaporated

In the preaseson, Ty Rattie scored seven goals to lead all NHL scorers, Kailer Yamamoto had six, to finish second, and Jesse Puljujarvi had four goals, tied for fifth overall. Three games into the year, not one of them has scored. Worse, Rattie has had just two Grade A scoring chance shots, with Puljujarvi a
