Slow Starts are Exposing the Oilers

Everyone in Oilersnation knew this was coming. It has been discussed for weeks. I wrote about the Oilers’ poor starts in mid-November. It has been an issue since early November, and this weekend it cost them two games. They allowed a goal 49 seconds into the game in Seattle on Friday and last night the Los Angeles Kings scored 2:01 into the game. Very few teams can win consistently playing catchup, and the Oilers are no different. Playing catchup is not a recipe for success. In the past five

Weekend Takeaways: Canadian teams the talk of NHL on and off the ice

If the NHL’s Canadian teams were on a text thread together, you get the sense the messages being exchanged right now would be similar to what a group of 20-somethings might be sending each other on a foggy Monday morning: Basically, “that was a bit of a wild weekend.” From firings to fights to Connor McDavid getting the gate, the past few days offered a lot to sift through. Start with the Vancouver Canucks, who — after losing 4-1 to the Pittsburgh Penguins at home on Saturday — finall

The Oilers and the trade deadline

The Oilers and the trade deadline

Well, no one got hurt, so that’s a positive. The Oilers continued the sleep walk that has plagued the team in recent games, and the Los Angeles Kings had beaten and frustrated the home team before Connor McDavid took a major and left the game. Dave Tippett’s post-game avail was frank, honest and complete in describing a team that has played well at times during this injury-riddled period of weeks, but is running out of steam and losing form. What’s next? Well, I had the homestand

For now, here are my top 5 moments
