-Failure is the only option-

Is failure our only option? I found myself cheering for Tampa Bay last night as the Oilers finally grinded out a win for the first time this season. I want the Oilers to tank for McDavid. There you go, I said it! I want the Oilers to tank for Connor McDavid, the once in a generation talent who is comparable to Sidney Crosby. Ive realized two things this season, one is the that Connor McDavid is really good - I was watching his videos on youtube and dreaming about him centering a line with Hallsy and Ebs. Two, the Oilers are not a good team and they are going absolutely nowhere this season regardless of the rare victory last night. I heard people are already looking to move

BABY NUGE IS ALL GROWN UP!

There was a time when Ryan Nugent-Hopkins—despite his enormous skill—would look awkward or unable. He certainly could not push the river ala Taylor Hall, and many nights looked overwhelmed. Our 'baby Nuge' is all grown up folks, and he's real and spectacular.

RNH to the rescue, Oilers edge Bolts

On the strength of a two point effort from Taylor Hall and a late third period winner off the stick of Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, the Edmonton Oilers finally managed to put an end to their five game losing skid to start the 2014-15 season, edging Steven Stamkos and the Tampa Bay Lightning by a score of 3-2 over at Rexall Place on Monday night.

GOOD VIBRATIONS

Taylor Hall was flying last night, and Dallas Eakins went power v. power at home and had success. The Nuge, Hall and Ebs delivered and Edmonton won their first game of the season. Hall is now inside the league’s top 30 scorers and likely on his way to where he belongs—top 10 in scoring. What a sublime, beautiful talent. You want to see more from the offense, but they’re not going to get it until Leon hits juniors. I like his future, but as we’ve discussed here in the last many days the current level isn’t a happening thing. The Oilers need to make a move. Perron’s -8 is a concern but he’s getting more chances now (that hip seems to be better) and Nail

Jones: Can Oilers feast on the East?

It would take NHL expansion to Las Vegas, Seattle, Portland, Anchorage, Fairbanks, Victoria, Tacoma, Eureka, Everett, Spokane, Salem, Eugene, Sacramento, Oakland, Bakersfield, Stockton, Frezno, Modesto, Long Beach, San Diego and Tijuana and Honolulu to do it. But Edmonton would obviously be much better off in the Eastern Conference.

Ryan Garner: Victory! Oilers Finally Find the Win Column

The final seconds ticked off the clock and I didn’t know how to react. It had been such a long time, with wins so few and far between, I honestly didn’t know what to do at the end of the Edmonton Oilers’ 3-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning. How do you react? I’m accustomed to anger, frustration, and gentle cursing under my breath, mumbling to myself for a while before trailing off in...

Michael Stuart: Flatlined in Edmonton

You know Jon Cooper told his players not to take the Edmonton Oilers lightly. You know Jon Cooper told his players to remain focused on the task at hand. It didn’t seem to matter. The Tampa Bay Lightning were virtually invisible on Monday night, as the Oilers beat them by a score of 3-2 at Rexall Place. The Lightning’s first period struggles set the tone for their entire evening. They...

MacKinnon: Oilers hope to keep on rolling during long homestand

Do not fold, staple, spindle or mutilate the saying went, back in the days of data being physically imprinted on punch cards that gave instructions to computers. No punch cards are needed in the digital era, but no matter how Edmonton Oilers head coach Dallas Eakins programmed the game plan, his team had come up losers in five straight games to start this NHL season.

On this night, score a victory for RNH over Steve Stamkos

It should go into Ryan Nugent-Hopkins’ memory bank, not just the deposit that beat Ben Bishop for the game-winner Monday but being more noticeable than his centre counterpart Steve Stamkos for one head-to-head-night. It might not be the same story in mid January, just before the all-star break when the Oilers are in Tampa, but in this one RNH was pushing the pace and creating stuff from first shift to his goal with 3 1/2 minutes left. It was easily his best game of the season after he missed two because he twisted his back in Vancouver 10 days ago. While Stamkos, who was dazzling in Vancouver last Saturday with two goals and an assist in a 4-2 win, had a quiet night here by his lofty s

It's a Nugemas Miracle!

A late goal from Ryan Nugent-Hopkins leads the Oilers to their first win of the 2014/2015 season. The Oilers slunk into Rexall Place tonight needing a win (so so so bad) after going 0-4-1 to start the season. The faithful were getting restless, and Connor McDavid chatter was starting much too early in Oil Country. Also of note: Ben Scrivens was all class tonight as he sported a mask to raise mental health awareness. It's the first of four such masks he plans to wear over the course of the season, and all will go up for auction later on, with all proceeds going to mental health research. First Period: In Search of a Win 0:50 The Oilers’ top line is off to a great start, fighting for

Finally, there was some loud music in the Edmonton Oilers’ dressing room after a game. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, who was more noticeable on Monday than opposing centre Steve Stamkos, beat Tampa Bay goalie Ben Bishop for his first goal with 3-1/2 minutes left to give the Oilers their first win of the season 3-2 over the Lightning at Rexall Place.
