Which shooters and goalies are the Edmonton Oilers’ best shootout options?

No team in the NHL has participated in more shootouts this season than the Washington Capitals. Through five games, the club has gone to the skills competition three times, posting a 1-2-0 record. This is a continuation of a trend from last season that saw the Caps participate in the shootout an NHL-leading 21 times; they managed a 10-11 record. All this is in contrast to Edmonton, a team which went to just seven shootouts last year and has one in the books this season. But with Washington one of the league leaders in the category, it’s a good time to look at how the individuals on the Oilers’ roster have done over their careers. Because the samples tend to be small, I’ve compiled each

WWYDW: Nail Yakupov

Date: 2014-10-22

Nail Yakupov’s place in both the NHL and as a member of the Edmonton Oilers is one that’s been given a lot of scrutiny since even before he was drafted. Some talking heads like to rip the Oilers for selecting Yakupov rather than a defenceman at the 2012 Draft, and generally add that trading him for help elsewhere is a thoroughly logical move. Others don’t understand why taking the consensus No. 1 pick was so controversial and are leery of moving out a forward with his incredible offensive potential. In this week’s edition of What Would You Do Wednesday we look ahead and ask what should be done with Yakupov’s future.

Trade Partners – Edmonton Oilers and Philadelphia Flyers

With both the Edmonton Oilers and Philadelphia Flyers struggling to find their way, it should surprise no one to hear players from both teams making their rounds in the NHL trade rumour mill. While the chances of a Sean Couturier or Jordan Eberle being moved appear to be highly unlikely, the same can not be said for the likes of David Perron, Jeff Petry or Brayden and Luke Schenn.

Matt Henderson: G7 Oilers vs Capitals: Problems With Ice-Time

FORWARDS If a team is going to run all 4 lines there will be casualties when it comes to ice time. You cant play everybody all the time, however, it will be up to the coach to still make sure the team puts the players on the ice who will give the team the best chance to win. For the Oilers, that means Taylor Hall and his line will get the minutes. For others, not so much. The Edmonton Oilers...

CAPITALS AT OILERS G7 2014-15

Date: 2014-10-22

After the thrilling victory on Monday, Edmonton will be a fun city today. I spent 15 years driving around Edmonton during winning and losing streaks and it’s so much better when the W’s are fresh. The win against the Lightning had real appeal, quality goals, great stops, and an opponent who not only could have won but probably lost because of bad luck. Man it felt good to see it happen to the other guy. ESTIMATED LINEUPS Hall—Nuge—Eberle Purcell—Draisaitl—Perron Pouliot—Arcobello—Yakupov Hendricks—Gordon—Joensuu Marincin—Fayne Ference—Petry Nikitin—Schultz Scrivens (Bachman) Dallas Eakins may want to give the Nuge line some of those cherry ZS’s he&#

Significant trade interest in Edmonton Oilers winger Nail Yakupov?

Source: Oilers Nation
Date: 2014-10-22

Nail Yakupov’s name has been a fixture in the rumour mill for a long time now, possibly for longer than his NHL career, even; in the months before the Oilers selected him consensus wisdom held that Edmonton would love to have traded the first overall pick in a move down to add a defenceman. The latest entry in this long-running story comes from TVA’s Renaud Lavoie, a reporter based out of Montreal who is a pretty decent source for this sort of thing.

Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman says that “at some point Jeff Petry’s going to be traded”

Thanks to a rocky start to their season, the Edmonton Oilers have found themselves squarely at the centre of the NHL rumour mill. Trade speculation always tends to follow struggling teams, and the Oilers have been no exception. But according to Sportsnet analyst Elliotte Friedman, Edmonton’s largely been content to hunker down and try to outlast the problems plaguing the club. In an interview with Sportsnet 960 on Monday (h/t Chris Nichols), Friedman explained that the Oilers were a lot quieter than one might expect: The Oilers are making fewer calls about trades than you would think. They aren’t looking for a goalie; they feel this [Viktor] Fasth injury is not too long-term, maybe a wee

I like to joke that the most important thing I learned in college was where to park. University of Utah parking enforcement was more efficient than the Gestapo and only slightly less ruthless, writing up tickets for each and every infraction. Having grown up in meter-free Fort McMurray, I racked up parking tickets like Luke Gazdic gathers PIMs. Honestly, I probably spent more money on parking infr...
