Kailer Yamamoto is signed but now what?

On Wednesday afternoon, the Oilers announced that the team had re-signed Kailer Yamamoto to a two-year, $3.1 million contract extension and I was pumped to see it. I personally think Yamamoto is a big part of moving this ship forward and that’s why getting him done for two years was important, but as much as I was excited to see his new deal get done, I instantly became aware of how the clock is ticking on someone potentially making their way out. After signing Yamamoto for 2 years $3.1M Ca

Benson

Benson

The Edmonton Oilers signed Tyler Benson yesterday, and some were surprised. I think it’s a reflection of how general manager Ken Holland uses AHL talent. It’s new to Oilers fans, but the Red Wings have been using their minor league system aggressively for many years. Does Benson have an NHL chance with Edmonton? Everything you wanted to know about the MHL, and why the Oilers are shopping there every year at the draft. https://t.co/d9cCYjtvoL— Lowetide (@Lowetide) August 7, 2022 THE

Recapping free agency so far

Free agency began on July 13, rather than the usual July 1, which in my opinion is unfortunate as traditionally it allowed me to watch free agency like a hawk on a day off from work to see what moves the Edmonton Oilers would make or not make, and it was always exciting. Not this […] Recapping free agency so far - Oil On Whyte - Oil On Whyte - An Edmonton Oilers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Off the Top of My Head

If we’re finally doing this right, Saturday’s announcement that Michael Brind’Amour had stepped down as a member and chair of the Hockey Canada board of directors is just the first shoe to drop in the wake of the scandal that’s come to light about the 2018 sexual assault of a woman.

What would you add to the menu at Rogers Place?

Before we get into the article I must note that articles such as this are for fun. The last time I asked “What movie character is Connor McDavid” and some were confused at the point of the article. The point is simple: We’re getting into the dog days of the Oilers’ off-season and I feel these articles are a great way to involve Nation Citizens! Just a little bit of harmless fun. Now imagine this: OEG comes to you and says “we want you to build our menu at Rogers Place, here’s an in
