Jones: Oilers' Talbot confident he will shake early season funk

So what have they been pouring into the water bottles of the top National Hockey League goaltenders so far this season? It’s not just Cam Talbot of the Edmonton Oilers, who has been struggling so far this season. He has some high-class company. “I noticed that. I’m not the only one,” said Talbot. “I’m going through that right now. There’s Carey Price of the Montreal Canadiens and so many other players going through it right now, too.

Edmonton Oilers' numbers troll depths of NHL rankings

A National Hockey League team is what its record says it is after about 50 games — not just four like the Edmonton Oilers have played in early October — but there is still little for them to say something like ‘at least we’ve got this going well.’ “Yeah, I’d agree with that,” Oilers head coach Todd McLellan said Monday after practice, whose 1-3 team deserves every loss it has collected early in the season. “It’s like paying Peter to pay Paul in practice.

Draisaitl to Injured List

Since the beginning of the 2016-17 season (including playoffs), Leon Draisaitl has scored 96 points in 98 games. The big man was placed on IR today and the Edmonton Oilers are officially in a tough spot. Without Draisaitl, this Oilers team—already outmanned on defense with the absence of Andrej Sekera—will have the added difficulty of playing without a very dangerous offensive player.

Five red flags concerning the Edmonton Oilers, and one big green one

Draisaitl formally placed on injured reserve Edmonton Oilers’ 2017-18 season got off to a pitch-perfect start for the first 65 or so minutes. That was long enough for the Oil to shut down Calgary Flames 3-0 in the opener on a Connor McDavid hat trick, then jump to an early 1-0 lead at Vancouver when Kris Russell of all people got a bit of a gift.

Edmonton Oilers' Leon Draisaitl is skating but not with his teammates

Leon Draisaitl skated by himself before the Edmonton Oilers’ morning practice Monday at Rogers Place, a sliver of good news after he was diagnosed with a concussion after the Thanksgiving loss to the Winnipeg Jets. Draisaitl, who was placed on injured reserve Monday, isn’t yet well enough to practise, even with a no-contact jersey, but Oilers head coach Todd McLellan says the first-line right-winger may travel on the upcoming road trip. “Leon won’t play against Carolina

Calm Down Already

Alright, things aren’t good right now. I think it’s fair to say this start is concerning to everyone, even the really optimistic people. That said, we can afford to acknowledge the issues without scrambling for the ejector seat button. There are reasons to believe the team will push through this skid. Here are problems that...
