The Real Life Podcast Ep. 401 – Kailer Yamamoto’s extension, coffee burns, and the boys #GetMontanasMessy

A fresh episode of the Real Life podcast on location at Montana’s? It happened and it was delicious. For the first time in Real Life history, the boys were on location at Montana’s on the south side to record a fresh episode of Real Life and #GetMontanasMessy. Sure, you may say that eating ribs while recording a podcast isn’t the best idea, but the boys were so excited to fill up on ribs that it was a challenge worth undertaking. Since the guys were at Montana’s to order some food, that

Where Can the Oilers’ Offence Improve?

The Edmonton Oilers scored 285 goals last season, the most the organization has scored since 1992. They averaged 3.48 goals/game in 2022 which tied them with Tampa Bay for seventh best in the NHL and had them behind Florida, Toronto, St. Louis, Colorado, Minnesota and Calgary. The offence was a strength last season, and should be again in 2022/2023 with Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl leading the charge. The majority of a team’s goals come from the forwards, so today we will look at the Oi

Edmonton Oilers player review and 2022-23 preview: Kris Russell

Welcome to the 2021-22 season review and 2022-23 season preview player-by-player! In this, and other articles, I’ll be, well, reviewing the Edmonton Oilers 2021-22 season and previewing the 2022-23 season. You can read about the analytics behind my analysis here. Kris Russell is approaching the 18th green. The 35-year-old’s career isn’t officially over, but to this point, the Oilers haven’t brought the unrestricted free agent back and no other teams are biting on him. He’s coming off

From the Top

While there’s still work to do for Edmonton Oilers’ president and general manager Ken Holland with the off-season now stretching into the first week of August, the ink he’s already managed to get done is impressive from where I sit. The signing of Kailer Yamamoto to a two-year deal with a $3.1 million AAV on the heels of a one-year contract worth $3 million for Jesse Puljujarvi is Holland’s latest work. Brett Kulak is back under contract for four seasons at $2.75 million per. Holland

Weekly Rumours – The Quiet Days

Things are pretty quiet around the league right now. We got the big Matthew Tkachuk trade a few weeks ago and since then, there’s basically been no news except a few teams and players settling to avoid arbitration. For the Oilers specifically, I applaud Ken Holland for avoiding arbitration with both Puljujarvi and Yamamoto. I really do think each player very well could have gotten more money from an arbitrator but Holland managed to solidify Puljujarvi’s cap hit and increase the possibility

Canada Perfect In Group Stage With Win Over Sweden

Canada wrapped up their group stage play with a 3-0 win over Sweden, which was their toughest test yet and one they handled nicely. The Canadians controlled most of the game, limiting the Swedes to only 18 through 60 minutes.  Initially, it felt like the hosts were on their way to another comfortable victory when Callum Ritchie scored only three and a half minutes into the game. Ritchie found some space in front of the net and hit the gap, firing the puck past the keeper to make it 1-0. His sh

Oilersnation’s 2022 Prospect Countdown – No. 12: Mike Kesselring

The blueline in Bakersfield is a point of interest in the Oilers’ organization right now. The Oilers have a handful of young defenders pushing for roles on the big-league club and there will be opportunities throughout the year, especially considering the Jay Woodcroft and Dave Manson coaching staff is comfortable operating with seven defenders in a lineup. The names in the mix are Markus Niemelainen, who impressed in his cup of coffee last season, Dmitri Samorukov, who’s waiver-eligible,
