GDB 35.0: Turn the Ship Around (5pm MT, CBC)

Welcome, friends, to a fresh Saturday GDB as we all get ourselves set for the first matchup of the season between the Edmonton Oilers and the Toronto Maple Leafs. I don’t know about you guys, but there’s nothing more annoying in this physical universe that we occupy than when the Toronto Maple Leafs come to town. Not only are their fans ridiculous in almost every way, they’ve wasted more paper on unnecessary Cup parade plans over the years that I can’t help but feel like they’re dire

2019/20 Edmonton Oilers GM35: Maple Leafs @ Oilers – 3P2W Plus More Oilers Trade Ramblings

This season the information being passed along behind the scenes has been slow. I have a feeling that’s because the new management that’s running the Oilers has patched up the leaks. As well, there hasn’t been a need to use the media to gauge fan response to potential moves or to influence a transaction. That said, I was talking to one of my Western Conference sources and we had a good conversation, here are some of the things that came out of it, The Canucks are out on the Taylor Hall s

Comparing top-six production of Maple Leafs vs. Oilers

Comparing top-six production of Maple Leafs vs. Oilers

When the Edmonton Oilers visit the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday night, hockey fans will be watching a matchup brimming with comparisons. Two teams emerging from rebuilds (or so we hope, anyway); two teams with recent No. 1 overall draft picks leading the way; two teams top-heavy in scoring and in salary; two teams in search of depth scoring. Let’s focus on those last two points. Both the Maple Leafs and Oilers have been on the hunt for more depth scoring over the past few seasons, and att

2019-20 Game 35: Maple Leafs at Oilers

I wish I could drive you to the place where HNIC broadcast into my grandparents living room in the 1960s. It was in Maple Ridge, past Haney, and you turned left at Thornhill School. At the top of the hill, right turn and then one mile plus a little. You’d turn right into the driveway, the sawmill to the left (my bike was probably in the driveway), and pull to a stop right at the front door. There was an old pew you could sit on just outside that door, and if you sat down in that pew and looke

Oilers’ goaltending regression central to recent struggles

Oilers’ goaltending regression central to recent struggles

The Edmonton Oilers are still hanging on to playoff positioning — sitting second in the Pacific Division at the moment — but even if the wheels haven’t fallen off the bus yet, the lug nuts are stripped and a few have broken free. It was a wobbly ride to begin with, since the Oilers were essentially a ramshackle group hoping that heavy minutes for Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl could carry them through, but it worked for a bit. Starting off the season as a relatively low-event team that

GDB Game Notes: Toronto Maple Leafs @ Edmonton Oilers

Mired in their longest losing streak of the season, the Edmonton Oilers will look to get back on track when they host the Toronto Maple Leafs on Hockey Night in Canada on Saturday night. 1. This is uncharted territory for the 2019-20 Oilers. After tosing 6-5 to the Minnesota Wild on Thursday night, the team’s losing streak reached three games for the first time this season. The Oilers were the final team this season to not have a losing streak last for more than two games. Four other times h

To me, Auston Matthews doesn’t look happy. His team is 15-14-4, out of a playoff position and sits 22nd overall. How long before he asks for a trade to 19-11-4 Pacific Division-leading Arizona? Read More
