It’s early, but Nail Yakupov has been impressive

The Nail Yakupov trade to the St. Louis Blues was a welcome surprise. The low-risk, high-reward move immediately gave Blues fans another story to follow in 2016-17 and so far it’s been a successful one. Through three games, Yakupov has looked like a legitimate offensive threat. He already has one goal and one assist on the season (he set up Magnus Paajarvi for a goal which is one...

Let’s Talk Talbot

The Oilers season has started and we’ve seen our share of both good and bad from the team through the first three games, however the biggest concern of the young season might just be the play of goaltender Cam Talbot. Goalie Cam has a reputation as a slow starter but with only two seasons as a bonified number one goalie it may be tough to brand him with that term this early. Coach...

Tuesday The Big Test For Oilers

Edmonton did something that not many people expected them to do at the start of the 2016-17 season. The team swept the Calgary Flames, a club many believe is playoff  bound this season, in a two-game set to open thing up.

Don’t Panic Over Oilers and Talbot. Yet.

Judging by the fans reaction on Twitter, you might have thought the Oilers lost a playoff game to put them on the brink of elimination rather than losing game three of the regular season. After two successful outings to open the year, in which Connor McDavid scored six points and the team looked different already, the Oilers played a real dud, leaving fans in a slight frenzy. The...

Connor McDavid – Be Not Afraid of Greatness

(Author’s Note: Consider this post a Monday Morning Pick-Me-Up. Sure, the Oilers lost, and it was awful but…) Connor McDavid is the best player in the NHL, and it’s not even close. He’s also 19 years old(!). Be not afraid of greatness, Oilers fans. In fact, get used to it, celebrate it, sit back and enjoy it, because hockey greatness has a home, and for the first time in...

McDavid: 'Tough to come into league unless you're Auston Matthews'

Hockey fans are still buzzing about Auston Matthews’ insane four-goal debut. After making the Senators look silly on multiple occasions, fans are wondering what’s next for Matthews as he continues in his first season in the NHL. For most rookies, life in the NHL looks like an adjustment. That hasn’t been the case for Matthews so far and many believe the best is yet to come...
