Though far from panic, Oilers making no excuses for mediocre first quarter of season

Though far from panic, Oilers making no excuses for mediocre first quarter of season

EDMONTON — The number is 76.3 per cent. But let’s call it 75 per cent — three out of four — for the sake of conversation.  That is hockey’s U.S. Thanksgiving stat, updated and stretching back all the way to the 2005-06 season, excluding Covid and lockout years that began after the last Thursday in November.  Three-quarters of teams in a playoff spot on this date get a Round 1 series, and you’d better be within five or six points to be eligible for the other 25 per cent.  The Ed

Oilersnation Everyday: Not Good Enough

Last night, the Edmonton Oilers could not find a way by Ilya Sorokin after firing 49 shots at the New York Islanders. At the other end of the ice, they could not help out their goaltender, Jack Campbell, who was not at all at fault for last night’s loss. Edmonton is now 0-2-0 on their three-game road trip, with the New York Rangers next up on Saturday. Tyler Yaremchuk will cover everything that happened in last night’s loss in Long Island. Following 60 minutes of action yesterday, the Oiler

Happy Thanksgiving! No place at the big kids table for the Oilers.

Happy Thanksgiving!  No place at the big kids table for the Oilers.

Do people like me owe people like him an apology? | Sergei Belski-USA TODAY SportsI’ve been writing an article on American Thanksgiving for about half a decade now. Here is last years. It’s a nice measuring point on if we make the playoffs or not. For the Oiler’s, it has been 100% accurate every year I’ve done it. If we were in a playoff spot at Thanksgiving we make the dance. If we weren’t, we did not make the dance. Most years I’ve been a #firethemalltobesafe guy as my big

Frustration

The frustration Edmonton Oilers’ captain Connor McDavid felt was obvious for all to see as the TV camera zoomed in on him on the bench in the late stages of a 3-0 loss to the New York Islanders Wednesday. There was good reason for that. After a promising 7-3-0 record in their first 10 games to start the season, last night’s collar by the Islanders after a 5-2 loss to New Jersey Monday has the Oilers 3-7-0 in their last 10 games. They’re a .500 team as they face the New York Rangers Satur

Oilers still struggling defensively: 'Everyone's got to step up'

Oilers still struggling defensively: 'Everyone's got to step up'

Weeks after superstar Leon Draisaitl called out his club's lackluster defense, the Edmonton Oilers are still seeking answers. Draisaitl's comments followed a 5-4 loss to the Washington Capitals on Nov. 8. Since then, the Oilers have won three of their seven games while being outscored 25-16, and they were left scratching their heads again after a 3-0 defeat to the New York Islanders on Wednesday night. "We've got to be better," forward Ryan Nugent-Hopkins said, per The Athletic's Daniel Nugent

Oilers’ Puljujarvi Needs Major Reset with New Team

Is Jonathan Toews a Realistic Trade Target?

If the first five weeks of this season has shown us anything, it’s that the Edmonton Oilers are more than one piece away from their roster being ready to truly compete for the Stanley Cup. That’s a problem. It’s also a problem that Ken Holland will have to go find multiple pieces with basically no cap space. And I’ll stop you before we do the whole “keep Evander Kane on LTIR” song and dance. As of right now, that isn’t an option. So who are the pieces out there that the Oilers cou

Digging in the Dirt

Digging in the Dirt

The Edmonton Oilers lost 3-0 against the New York Islanders, but there were some good stories for the visitors. Jack Campbell played well, stopping 27 of 30. Zach Hyman was credited with 10 high-danger scoring chances, and Cody Ceci had an expected goal share (five-on-five) of 82 percent. The team is heading in a good direction. Need some wins. As the losses pile up, the pressure to make a deal increases. The Oilers history of early season deals made on the road is not inspiring. Clic

The Day After 20.0: It’s American Thanksgiving. How much trouble are the Oilers in?

The Day After is brought to you by NHL odds site Betway! Happy American Thanksgiving. The Oilers have a .500 points percentage and are out of the playoffs. Today’s a date that’s wildly accepted as a measuring stick when it comes to the NHL, and a day after dropping a 3-0 decision to the New York Islanders, things aren’t looking pretty. Last night was another tough one. It was a clunky, boring first period for both teams. Edmonton’s first shot on goal came 12 minutes into the game when

The Day After Highlights 20.0: Edmonton Oilers lose 3-0 to New York Islanders

The Day After is brought to you by NHL odds site Betway! I know this is the highlights article, but boy — there really wasn’t much in that way for the Oilers last night. They fell 3-0 to the New York Islanders in what was a frustrating loss. Edmonton outshot them 50-30, but it wasn’t enough. I hate to say it, but the Oilers got goalie’d. They got goalie’d. Jean-Gabriel Pageau scored two tallies in the second. He got his first shorthanded beating out Tyson Barrie and Ryan Nugent-Hopki

2 Teams That Could Acquire Oilers Defenseman Evan Bouchard

My position remains on Evan Bouchard being a player that should be traded, whether that be for draft picks or used in a package to grab a bigger player, Bouchard should be moved.
