Three Thoughts: On the way?

To understate, it’s been awhile since the Edmonton Oilers drafted and developed a goaltender who turned out to actually be worth the wait. That would be Devan Dubnyk, who was taken 14th overall in 2004, navigated the minefield that was Edmonton’s minor league maze, graduated to the Oilers’ crease on a bad team during the Decade of Darkness, was cut loose after one terrible season when the wheels fell off and then landed on his feet rather nicely in the blue paint with the Minnesota Wild.

McDavid visits Humboldt

There is a beautiful moment happening in the small town of Humboldt. In a town that is still reeling from the tragedy that took place with the Broncos, news has been surfacing over the last few hours that Connor McDavid has been spending some time in the community. In his usual understated fashion, McDavid’s visit was not at all publicized until word started to spread that he landed in the community spend time with some local kids. Clearly, McDavid did not want to make a big deal about this

Click the pic above to check out our merch!On Lowetide’s show yesterday he had an outstanding prospects scout by the name of Simon Boisvert on and they talked about some of the potential players that the Oilers could select from if they end up keeping the 1st round pick at the draft this year. Lowetide asked Boisvert for a few candidates that the Oilers might have a choice from and the first name that Boisvert said was Bode Wilde. Simon Boisvert had this to say about Wilde: I think he is a su

(Video) McDavid Mic’d Up

Making it’s rounds last night across the interwebs was a video of a compilation of the top “mic’d moments of 2017-18.” If you haven’t taken the time to watch it, I highly recommend. In a league of “lobotomized” twitter accounts and “cookie-cutter” interviews that we never really get to see the human side of things in, having something like this to watch is special. I took some time to cut down the video into the best parts, and low and behold, they were all of Connor McDavid,

The Ducks are bad and it makes me happy

I need to preface this article by saying that yes, I understand that the Oilers are not in the playoffs this year and the Ducks are. They earned more points than us in the regular season, I get it. BUT I don’t care what you say about me being a salty Oilers fan because that’s exactly what I am! I hate the Ducks with a burning passion, and I’m absolutely ecstatic that they’re about to be swept by the Sharks. In all honesty, I really thought the Ducks would be performing better in the pl

You Be The Boss: Oilers fans point finger at GM for lost season

You Be The Boss: Oilers fans point finger at GM for lost season

  Edmonton Oilers fans ponder disappointing season from upper bowl. The inescapable conclusion of this year’s ‘You Be The Boss’ survey is that the Edmonton Oilers bosses were to blame way more than the players. When it came to all but four of the players, the 2,450 respondents voted to ‘Keep Him’. But when it came to those not wearing skates, they voted to put the run on the general manager and most of the coaching staff. When Oilers Entertainment Group vice-chairman and chief exec

Shine a Light

The Edmonton Oilers have a chance to secure another brilliant diamond in the McDavid cluster with astute drafting at No. 9 or higher. Since 2010, the club has been (mostly) drafting in wonderful places in the first round. This time, it’s at the end of the top 10 before the lottery. If Peter Chiarelli is going to trade the pick for a RHD, one would think the acquired player would need to be under control for several years. Who could it be? THE ATHLETIC! Great offer! Includes a free 7-day trial

ONE GIF – Oilers Forwards Edition

Finally, the perfect piece for someone who doesn’t like to read. I’ve decided to sum up the 2017-18 season for every Oilers forward with only one GIF. One Will Ferrell GIF to be exact. There will be no explanation for the GIFs whatsoever because if I’ve done my job correctly, and I have, these should be pretty self-explanatory. Connor McDavid: 82GP: 41G, 67A – 108 points   Ryan Nugent-Hopkins: 62 GP: 24G, 24A – 48 points   Leon Draisaitl: 78GP: 25G, 45A – 70 points   Milan Lu

Plan C

Click the pic above to check out our merch!Last week was an interesting yet boring one in the land of the Edmonton Oilers. We sat through 3 excruciating press conferences which provided very little new information other than “still evaluating” and the promise of unveiling “a plan”. Let’s take a look at things… In 2016-17 the heavily favoured Chicago Blackhawks lost to the Nashville Predators in the first round of the NHL playoffs. Pekka Rinne shutout the Hawks twice in a row en rout
