Oilers a Stanley Cup Dark Horse?

Trying not to put the carriage in front of the horse, but the Edmonton Oilers are heating up just at the right time and might be the team you don’t want to face in the playoffs. The Oilers are also 6-3-1 in their last 10 games (.650 win percentage) and are tied for second place in the Pacific Division with 89 points. During a recent four-game winning streak Edmonton outscored...

Oilers Postgame: Procrastination Pays Off!

Final Score: Oilers 7 – Avalanche 4 Being a University student, I am well aware of the procrastination method. It involves taking your sweet time to get started on the paper, and ultimately waiting until the final night before you even get started. After a frantic last ditch effort to get it all done, somehow, someway, the thing gets written. And sometimes, that paper turns out...

Big Future for Award Winner Ethan Bear

The Edmonton Oilers got a steal of a selection when they took Ethan Bear in the fifth round of the 2015 NHL Entry Draft at #124 overall. A right-handed defenseman, Bear was drafted for his defensive awareness, but since then has taken giant offensive leaps forward for the WHL’s Seattle Thunderbirds.

Oilers Postgame: Bowling Shoe Ugly

Final Score: Ducks 4 – Oilers 3 Now seriously, what the heck was that? Just brutal. For the first 20 minutes, the Oilers came out and played forceful and inspired hockey, working that excellent play into the production of 2 goals. If not for a less than stellar period for Cam Talbot, the Oilers, on the back of one helluva goal by McDavid, could have been up 1 or maybe even 2...
