Jones: Oilers fail to show up again in loss to 'Canes

So far, the Edmonton Oilers have shown up for this season, other than the opening game, much beyond the extent that Henry Mack did for the Edmonton election for mayor. For the last week or so, it seems like all the Edmonton Oilers have done is practice. Then they took the ice Tuesday evening against the Carolina Hurricanes and looked like they were meeting up for the first time. The Oilers were running into each other, making passes to locations where no orange jerseys were in

Carolina Hurricanes storm to early lead over host Edmonton Oilers, coast to win

Is it too early to panic? Last October at this time, the Edmonton Oilers were 4-1. Now they’re 1-4, they’ve been outscored 19-8 since their season-opening 3-0 win over the Calgary Flames in the season-opener, given up seven power plays in 20 attempts in that time.

On Tuesday against Carolina, they fell 5-3, giving up g

Oilers players share blame for goalies' rough start

Cam Talbot took much of the heat as the Edmonton Oilers stumbled out of the gate this season, giving up 14 goals in a three-game losing streak, but there is plenty of guilt to go around. Seeing their goalies being lit up this season has the rest of the players in the dressing room wishing they were part of the solution instead of the problem. But they are a big part of the problem which was clearly evident in the first period against the Carolina Hurricanes. The Oilers were slo

Don’t Hit the Panic Button yet Oilers Fans

After an incredible 2016-17 season when the Edmonton Oilers came within a fingernail of the Western Conference Final, this is not the start everyone expected in 2017-18. The Oilers are a playoff-calibre team, no doubt about it. A poor start to the season is common for a lot of great teams and does not reflect true potential. What defines a good team is this: Are they able to bounce back quickly and turn things around? Sometimes a team cannot recover from a slump. That is where

Oilers’ Talbot Isn’t the Only Struggling Goalie in October

If you saw the 1-3-0 start to the season for the Edmonton Oilers, you’d think you were looking back to their decade of darkness. No, that’s the start the Oilers are off to in 2017-18. Edmonton’s been slow out of the gate this season despite being picked to win the Stanley Cup by multiple Las Vegas gambling lines. Games aren’t won in October though, and it’s no time to panic for the Oilers and their faithful just yet. In an attempt to spark their lineup, and give the other gu

Oil Kings Offense Struggles The Oil Kings need secondary scoring. In their first 10 games, they have not been able to create sustained offensive depth. The whole team has contributed in spurts, but the most productive – and consistent—Oil Kings have been Trey Fix-Wolansky, Brett Kemp, and Colton Kehler.
