Old school Oilers autograph session draws large crowds to West Ed

Old school Oilers autograph session draws large crowds to West Ed

Fans lined up hours before the tables opened at West Edmonton Mall Monday for a rare chance to get Edmonton Oilers’ autographs. But it’s worth it, even when the team is a heart-breaker. “The oilers are like a family in this city you have to support them no matter what,” said Rainer Doberstein, who showed up with his friend Sean Deren at 2:30 a.m. They came in through a hotel entrance, got kicked out of the mall by security and then waited in the hotel until 5:30 a.m. Signing was schedul

Edmonton Oilers Rumors: Gagner, Sekera In. Talbot, Puljujarvi Out. Who’s Next?

What. A. Weekend! I was convinced that the Oilers were going to really make a go of it against Pittsburgh, Carolina, and the Islanders but man did they show me how wrong I really was. So much for getting rewarded for hard work eh? Those boys must be absolutely spent mentally. It’s come to the point to where they can’t even get a win when they do the right things… Well, no need to dwell on that. The Oilers have started the sell-off with a couple of deals. One that I expected very much and

The Edmonton Oilers place Peter Chiarelli acquisition Brandon Manning on waivers

This just in: The Edmonton Oilers have placed D Brandon Manning on waivers. The Oilers acquired Manning and spare tire F Robin Norell from Chicago back on December 30th, in exchange for F Drake Caggiula and (essentially) the contract of D Jason Garrison. The move today would serve to create a roster spot for veteran D-man Andrej Sekera. Sekera was re-called from his Bakersfield re-hab stint yesterday. It is my belief that Sekera will undergo a physical with team doctors tomorrow. That would be

Space Oddity

Space Oddity

As we slide out of winter (someday) and into spring, I’d like to use more of these off days to discuss the future. Today our subject is space, as in ‘roster’ space and what the Oilers might look like this fall. THE ATHLETIC! The Athletic Edmonton features a fabulous cluster of stories (some linked below, some on the site). Great perspective from a ridiculous group of writers and analysts. Proud to be part of the group. Outstanding offer is here. New Lowetide: Cam Talbot’s

Puljujarvi Fills a Devils’ Need, but Is He Worth It?

Puljujarvi Fills a Devils’ Need, but Is He Worth It?

It’s obvious the New Jersey Devils still have some rebuilding to do. They began that process when they traded Brian Boyle to the Nashville Predators for a second-round pick. It’s likely he won’t be the only one moved, as Marcus Johansson and Ben Lovejoy are both on expiring contracts. Even though the Devils will be sellers, they can still look to acquire talent. One name in the rumor mill is Jesse Puljujarvi’s, who’s struggled with the Edmonton Oilers. His time in Edmonton could be co

Oilers Prospect Update: Fifteen straight wins for the Condors

The water in Bakersfield is just fine from the looks of things. The young Oilers took their 15th straight win last night with a 2-1 OTW over the Ontario Reign. The number now sits at three more wins to break the record for the longest winning streak in AHL history. This week they will play the Coyotes affiliate Tucson Roadrunners on Saturday, then the Roadrunners again before hopefully eclipsing the mark set by the Norfolk Admirals against the Minnesota Wild affiliate Iowa Wild. Meanwhile, else
