The Ballad of Marc Pouliot

In the months leading up to his draft, Marc Pouliot was flattened by Dion Phaneuf at the top prospects game. He would endure injuries great and small afterward, from mono to pubis and back again.

In October 2007, Craig MacTavish said “Pouliot has a ways to go, but it looks to me like he’ll get there. He thinks offensively with those kids. I saw some heady plays with the

WWYDW: Jersey Numbers

Nikita Gusev, arguably the best player playing outside of the NHL the past few seasons, is finally coming to North America. The Vegas Golden Knights couldn’t fit him under the cap so they sent him to the New Jersey Devils in exchange for a couple of draft picks.

Training Camp Battles

We’re going to see some interesting battles in Oilers camp this fall, and some of the youngsters could break through but get sent to Bakersfield until trades can be made in order to make room. One of the worries fans rightly have now surrounds making sure quality players don’t fall through the cracks. There are so many good defensemen who are prospects, can Dave Tippett gauge the group in what will be a three-week window? THE ATHLETIC! The Athletic Edmonton features a fabulous c
