A quick look at Cooper Marody

Back in March, the Oilers acquired Cooper Marody from the Philadelphia Flyers for a 3rd round pick in 2019, and a lot of us were left to wonder who did we add and what the Oilers saw in him. In his three games with the Condors, we didn’t learn much outside of him being able to be productive in a small sample size, but we can still take a few things away from his season. As soon as Cooper hit the town of Bakersfield he was running. The 21-year-old netted three points in his three games with

The good, the bad, & the unsustainable of Edmonton Oilers' winger Ty Rattie

2017-18 Edmonton Oilers in review Ty Rattie “Small sample size.” Let’s get those words out there right up front in case I forget to mention it later. It applies in spades to the case of Ty Rattie and his abbreviated time as a member of the Edmonton Oilers. Rattie was one of a group of small bets GM Peter Chiarelli made last July of free-agent “tweeners”, guys that been around North American pro ranks for a few years without ever finding a foothold in the NHL.

Forecasting Ty Rattie’s 2018-19

Forecasting Ty Rattie’s 2018-19

First line winger? Third line grinder? Something else? It’s been just about one year since the Oilers acquired Ty Rattie. Signed as an unrestricted free agent during last year’s free agent frenzy, he’s a player who could be anywhere in Edmonton’s lineup come opening night. He could also be in Bakersfield if something really wacky happens between now and October. I don’t know anyone who had Ty Rattie suiting up for any NHL games this past season. Prior to the 2017-18 season th

Laughable trade speculation around Leon Draisaitl, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Cam Talbot

It’s the silly season of nonsense and rampant boosterism in the National Hockey League, where trade speculators in Toronto and New York try to outdo one another in devaluing Edmonton Oilers hockey players and propose bizarre trade scenarios. Exhibit A is Larry Brooks of the New York Post, who has been around hockey a long time, who writes: “(New York Rangers GM Jeff) Gorton is believed to have talked with Edmonton, and might be willing to accept Milan Lucic and his five-year, $30 million co
