It’s Not Fine

Watching interim board chair Andrea Skinner defiantly insist before a Canadian Heritage standing committee Tuesday that CEO Scott Smith and his leadership team should not be removed as part of an overhaul of Hockey Canada was as staggering an example of ass-covering, arrogance, and denial as you’ll ever see. Skinner and former board chair Michael Brind’Amour spent about two hours testifying – if you consider being evasive in answering questions and arguing about the need for change in st

Baggedmilk on #theLOCKERROOM: Leon Draisaitl is a stud and Dylan Holloway could be The Answer

Happy Wednesday, Internet friends, and welcome to yet another chapter of your ol’ pal Baggedmilk’s adventures in radio. As I do every week, I jumped on the air with the boys on The Locker Room for a quick segment to talk about the Oilers while also offering my takes on anything else that’s going on in the world. To kick off this week’s segment, we got started with a conversation about Leon Draisaitl and whether he’s one of the top three players in the NHL. Generally, I don’t really

Oilers at Canucks, Game Seven 2022-23 Preseason

Oilers at Canucks, Game Seven 2022-23 Preseason

Many years ago, the Oilers drafted three young blue who were headed to (or drafted from) college hockey. They were about equal offensively, and there was a time when it was uncertain which player (if any) would win an NHL job. Things change in a hurry. The Hart Trophy is a big damn deal, important to get it right. If Connor McDavid wins the scoring title, and the Oilers finish at or near the top of the Pacific Division, bet on him in 2022-23. Here's why. https://t.co/PXR935t2Z2— Lowetid

Is Eight Pre-Season Games Too Many?

With pre-season well underway now, a big talking point around social media is the fact that the Oilers have eight pre-season games. For many, it feels like too much. I asked around social media earlier this week to get the opinions of Nation Citizens. Is there such a thing as too much hockey? Let’s see what you had to say! Instagram: Over on Instagram, theseven80 says we should have 15 pre-season games (!!!) but start on September 1st. I won’t lie, the idea sounds fun, however, I think afte

Rookie Holloway earning rave reviews with Oilers

Rookie Holloway earning rave reviews with Oilers

Dylan Holloway has turned the narrative from “if’ to “where.” The newly turned 21-year-old prospect has forced his way into top-nine consideration for the Edmonton Oilers less than two months after general manager Ken Holland declared the rookie had to win a regular role in the team’s lineup.  “He will be in Edmonton if he is in the lineup every night,” Holland told Bob Stauffer on Oilers Now in August. “I don’t want him to be the 13th or 14th forward. In my mind, Dylan Holl

Oilersnation Radio Pacific Division Preview: The Seattle Kraken

We continued our Pacific Division previews today with a stop out on the west coast to see what the Seattle Kraken are looking like ahead of their second season in the league. The teams radio Play-by-Play voice Everett Fitzhugh joined Tyler Yaremchuk for a chat about the team’s two young centremen, Matty Beniers and Shane Wright, and what else to expect from a team that looks very different than it did a year ago. In year one, they only put up 60 points but they should do much better than that

NHL Notebook: Jay Woodcroft longshot for Jack Adams Trophy, Barzal inks eight-year deal with Islanders and more

NHL.com is in the midst of releasing its trophy tracker with 15 of its writers filling out ballots. Jay Woodcroft was one of 10 NHL bench bosses to receive first place votes for the trophy, but was a distant seventh in overall voting. While there’s a number of good names on the list, I find it hard to believe he’s so low. He joined the Oilers partway through last season and down the stretch run, they posted a 26-8-3 record with the league’s third best winning percentage. Woodcroft landed

Oilersnation Everyday: Hollywood Puts on a Show, comparing Bouchard and Barrie and Tom Gazzola joins the show

Dylan “Hollywood” Holloway gave Tyler Yaremchuk plenty to talk about on the second episode of Oilersnation Everyday. The Oilers rookie forward fired home a hat trick in last night’s 7-2 preseason win over the Vancouver Canucks at Rogers Place. After such a great performance, has Holloway cemented his spot in the Oilers opening night lineup? Tyler was joined by Tom Gazzola and Holloway’s chances of cracking the NHL roster were the top topic of discussion. They also spoke about the Oilers
