Both NHL stars strolled into Rexall Place with the requisite ballyhoo, but when all was said and done, neither Steve Stamkos of the Tampa Bay Lightning nor Alex Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals were able to steal the show this week. Two nights after the Edmonton Oilers neutralized Stamkos and scored a 3-2 win, the club registered a 3-2 decision over the Capitals on Wednesday.

What's Going Wrong with the Colorado Avalanche and Will It Be Fixed in 2014-15?

Seven games into the 2014-15 NHL season, all is not well for Denver’s hockey team. After a brilliant resurgence under first-year head coach Patrick Roy last season—one which won him the Jack Adams Award as the league’s best bench boss—the Colorado Avalanche now look a lot more like the 2012-13 team that won the right to draft Nathan MacKinnon first overall than 2013-14’s Central Division champions. With just one win in the team’s first six games heading into action on Tuesday, a home game against the perpetually weak Florida Panthers represented a chance for the team to get back on track. Instead, Florida won in overtime, which prompted Roy to question his

Have the Sedin Twins, Vancouver Canucks Rekindled the Magic in 2014-15?

It would be a mistake to read too much into the hot start the Sedin twins are having with new linemate Radim Vrbata in Vancouver. As a general rule, any happenings over such a short span of time should be taken with a heavy dose of salt. Still, looking at the numbers it’s hard not to be encouraged. Daniel Sedin’s eight points on the year represent a big uptick from the last half of 2013-14, when he didn’t manage that much production over the entire months of February, March and April. The improvement in Henrik Sedin’s game is almost as impressive; not only is his point production up, but his two goals through five games represent as many as he scored in the entire pos

Sending Leon Draisaitl To Junior?

Date: 2014-10-23

Through six games, the Edmonton Oilers have figured out most of their NHL roster. The one thing they have yet to figure out? Well it’s been the thing plaguing them since the early months of the summer, their center depth. The Oilers knew they had two guys they could trust in Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Boyd Gordon, but still had two open spots. They belonged to Mark Arcobello and Leon Draisaitl on opening night. Early on, the returns are good on Arcobello, who has provided Edmonton with solid two-way play, and some decent play-making. He isn’t a difference maker, but he’s found a way to put up some points in these early games, which is a really good sign. He’s played his

Hockey Canada president/CEO Tom Renney clarifies comments on ‘values,’ dismissal by Oilers

Tom Renney said Wednesday he disagreed with Oilers management over the appropriate ice time for the NHL club’s young stars, but emphatically stressed he was never asked to increase their ice time following injuries to those players. The Hockey Canada president and CEO was responding to a story by Gabriel Béland in La Presse that quoted him saying he lost his job as Oilers head coach in May 2012 over a clash of ‘values.’ The story made the internet rounds on Tuesday. The key quotation was as follows: In Edmonton, they wanted me to give more ice time to our young players, who had all undergone surgery. I reduced their ice time. But (the thinking) was we had to play them more

Tyler Bunz Looks Forward To Season With Wichita

The Edmonton Oilers had an interesting situation developing in net for their prospects this season. Signing Ty Rimmer to an AHL deal, the Oilers gave themselves seven total goaltenders signed, and only a limited number of spots to play them. Last season, the Oilers had the same situation, but Rimmer was already committed to playing for the Quad City Mallards of the then-CHL, allowing them to spread their goaltenders out among their affiliations. This season, the Oilers had to decide which goaltenders went where, and find another team for their extra goalie. The post Tyler Bunz Looks Forward To Season With Wichita appeared first on Tend The Farm ~.

TUMBLING DICE

In May of 2009, the Edmonton Oilers and Steve Tambellini had to decide between centermen Kyle Brodziak and Marc Pouliot. Why? Well, the plan was to have a tough guy on every line, be it J-F Jacques or Ryan Stone or Zack Stortini, and these centermen weren't gritty enough to be successful in the 2009 NHL. A choice would have to be made.

Two consecutive wins is usually not a big deal, but if the Oilers can win tonight many in Oilersnation will be tempted to follow in the footsteps of the enthusiastic Frank "the Tank." Wins haven't been plentiful in Edmonton for the previous eight seasons, so I can understand why people get excited after a win. People were honking their horns on Wayne Gretzky drive after Monday's win, so it is clear the citizens of Oilersnation needed a win, and are hoping for another.

The Oilers finally claimed their first victim of the season on Monday night, and enter tonight’s tilt looking for their first winning streak of the season. It’ll be game three of a seven game home-stand for the Oilers, and the first of two meetings between Edmonton and Washington on the season. The two faced each other twice early in the year last year, and have both changed quite a bit since then. The Caps will be without veteran center Brooks Laich, who was placed on the IR earlier this week. Forward Jay Beagle will be in the lineup after being activated, while youngster Tom Wilson will not after being assigned to the AHL’s Hershey Bears. Oilers forward Luke Gazdic is cur

Dallas, why doesn't Yakupov play more? This morning the subject of Nail Yakupov's ice time, or lack of, came up during Dallas Eakins media availability. Courtesy of Reid Wilkins here is his answer: My only thought going into the game is to win the hockey game. This is about our team. I know there's a lot of chatter out there about individuals ice time, this is about our team. The team. The team. The team every time. You guys can talk about guys ice times. We've got guys that are improved this year and playing less, we've got guys that are improved and playing more. There are situational things that happen on the ice, you guys can read whatever you want into it. I'm not talking about
