Letters Dec. 7: Should Connor McDavid boycott the Beijing Winter Olympics?

I would hope that Connor McDavid will boycott the Beijing Olympics and encourage all hockey players to do likewise. This is a great opportunity to call out China for all its human rights abusive laws. There is not a single reason to justify participating. China is nothing but an oppressive regime that the world needs to put in its place. The Olympic games are now and have been for some time the Political Olympic Games. With McDavid, Crosby participating they are justifying China’s human rights

Eyes On Niemeläinen

Eyes On Niemeläinen

Everyone loves a physical defenceman. | Photo by Andy Devlin/NHLI via Getty ImagesCould Niemeläinen remain in Edmonton once everyone on the blue line is healthy? Over the last several weeks, the Oiler defence has undergone plenty of changes. Until yesterday, the blue line was down four regulars. Edmonton has plugged in Philip Broberg, William Lagesson and Markus Niemeläinen, while Kris Russell has played all over the place and for all kinds of minutes. When everyone gets healthy on the

Edmonton Oilers not getting enough even-strength contributions

Considering the Vancouver Canucks, with eight wins in their first 25 games, just fired their GM Jim Benning and their coach Travis Green, the fan angst here over the 16-7 Edmonton Oilers’ troubling even-strength play and their ongoing slow starts seems the equivalent of picking lint off a suit jacket.

WWYDW(ME): Should The Oilers Claim Riley Nash?

14 years later and the Edmonton Oilers have an opportunity to get Riley Nash on their roster. The Winnipeg Jets have placed Nash, formerly a No. 21 overall draft pick of the Oilers, on waivers. Riley Nash (WIN) & Kevin Connauton (FLA) on waivers — Elliotte Friedman (@FriedgeHNIC) December 6, 2021 Nash was one of those Oilers Who Never Was, like Mathieu Lombardi or David Vyborny. The Oilers selected Nash in 2007 with one of the draft picks that came back from the Chris Pronger trade.

Philip Broberg, Markus Niemelainen and the Edmonton Oilers young defencemen

The Edmonton Oilers have been in a precarious spot this year with a stretch of games forcing them into playing some young defencemen. While Evan Bouchard won a spot on the roster outright and has arguably been the clubs best defenceman this year, the Oilers have needed to rely on some other young defencemen. Darnell Nurse missed seven games with a broken finger. Slater Koekkoek has missed the last eight with a lower-body injury. Duncan Keith has missed the last five with a back injury. Cody Ce
