Was Edmonton's best deal of last summer the one Oilers GM Peter Chiarelli refused to make?

Oilers fans, bloggers and observers wanted the Subban trade. But not so much Chiarelli The best deal that Edmonton GM Peter Chiarelli ever made for the Oilers? Could it be the deal he never made? In the days leading up to the June 24-25 2016 National Hockey League entry draft, Chiarelli was trying desperately to acquire a top right-shot d-man. At the same time, the Montreal Canadiens were trying to move star d-man P.K. Subban before July 1, when the no-movement clause would kick in on a contract that will pay him $9 million per until 2022. It’s unclear now if the Oilers ever had a massive amount of interest in Subban, 27, who was instead dealt to Nashville for Shea Weber. It is clear,

Avry (find him here) wasn’t scared off by our first video, and he was gracious enough to join us for a second round with Edmonton’s self-proclaimed new #1 Taylor (and you can find him here)! In this episode of Odd Man Rush, we talk Taylor Hall (because yes), expansion team selections, and we do some reflecting on the first half of the season.

And don’t forget to vote for the winner of the Shootout! (Are you Team Hunter?) Check out our l

When Milan Lucic got down on the ice for some playful push-ups, then blistered a 102.7 mph slapper to take the hardest shot at the Edmonton Oilers Super Skills Sunday, it was the first time the big guy’s had a broad smile, individually, in awhile.

WEEKEND UPDATE

The Edmonton Oilers recalled Jordan Oesterle from Bakersfield today, that means someone (probably Adam Larsson) is going to be unavailable against Arizona and possibly beyond). The Condors were short a man before the recall, and that has caused a chain reaction through the system. Let's have a look at the recalls, the injuries and the numbers from this week among Oilers prospects.

When Milan Lucic got down on the ice for some playful push-ups, then blistered a 102.7 mph slapper to take the hardest shot at the Edmonton Oilers Super Skills Sunday, it was the first time the big guy’s had a broad smile, individually, in awhile. The Top Gun award was in stark contrast to Lucic’s clear frustration Saturday night when the left-winger, who’s gone 10 games without a goal and hasn’t scored even-strength in 17 games, slammed his stick on the boards as he left the ice during the Oilers 2-1 shootout win over the Calgary Flames. Nobody wears his heart on this sleeve like Lucic. His grin that can light up a hockey rink when things are going good for himself, but there’s a

Oilers Skills Competition 2017: Anthony Maroon Edition

DISCLAIMER: My brothers’ awesome present of Oilers Skills Competition tickets is the only reason I can write this post, so this post is officially sponsored by Topher and Max Flanagan. Thanks, guys!  This is what they got in return. Sorry, brothers. The 2017 Oilers Skills Competition provided some great times, with very few surprising results. Some of the Oilers definitely had more fun than others this afternoon; McDavid seemed maybe a little bit hungover during the intros, but Patrick Maroon was accompanied by his son Anthony (remember this?) who couldn’t have been happier. Joined by the Peewee AA Sherwood Park Jets, our Oilers were divided into the Orange and Blue teams and put

From the Cult of Hockey: Everybody wins at Rogers Place Sunday afternoon

Date: 2017-01-15

The Edmonton Oilers held their annual skills competition, at a sold-out Rogers Place Sunday afternoon. I’ve been to every one of these that the team has held, over the past ten years, and I must say that this one felt different. Very different. For one thing, the advantage to taking the family out to this event in the past has over the past decade been that you were guaranteed to not walk away disappointed.  There was no way the home team was going to lose. I’m only half-joking. A couple of seasons (especially in the deep, dark Dallas Eakins era), I genuinely felt as if it was good therapy for these young kids to just get out there, smile, have some fun, and hear your fans c

Connor McDavid fastest skater, Milan Lucic hardest shot

Maybe they should have told Connor McDavid he had to carry Joey Moss on his back for the fastest skater competition at the Edmonton Oilers Super Skills competition Sunday, because that was the only way he wasn’t going to win this contest. McDavid cruised around the Rogers Place ice in 13.382 seconds to beat Benoit Pouliot at 13.895 with J.J. Khaira, who missed Saturday’s game against the Calgary Flames with the flu, the third fastest at 13.941. “Pretty good time out there,” said McDavid, who will be the favourite at the NHL All-Star Game race in Los Angeles later this month, too. Six guys took part in the fastest skater with Anton Slepyshev, Drake  Caggiula – who was slowed as
