Predicting the Future Impact of Patrick Maroon

On Feb. 29, 2016, the Edmonton Oilers traded for Patrick Maroon as management quietly made what looks like one of the better Oilers trades in recent history. Acquired from the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for prospect Martin Gernat and a 2016 fourth-round pick, Maroon went from a team where he was a smaller fish in a big pond of forwards to an organization ready to give a gritty...

Connor Is Ready to Captain the Oilers in 2016-17

Throughout his incredibly short career to date, Connor McDavid has been shattering expectations.

Entering his second season in the NHL, Connor McDavid is once again facing enormous expectations which may even dwarf the ones he experienced last year. McDavid will turn 20 in January and is looking to prove himself after a 2015-16 season which saw him suffer a serious injury while still posting over a point-per-game pace with 47 points in 45 games. What does McDavid have to...

Just Who Is Drake Caggiula?

Back in May, the Edmonton Oilers signed NCAA free agent Drake Caggiula (pronounced Cajula) to a 2-yeal deal. Caggiula attracted a lot of attention from NHL teams after helping to lead North Dakota to the NCAA championship this year.

Oilers Sunday Night Links

As we approach the final stretch of August, it’s time to start taking a look at the roster and the possible training camp battles that lay ahead. The odds of another major move happening decrease everyday, and the group you see is likely the one you will get on October 12th.
