Trading Down In The First Round

September 3, 2020 - 3:50 PM ET

Currently the Edmonton Oilers only have four selections in the 2020 NHL Draft. Their 2nd round selection this year was part of the trade which brought in Andreas Athanasiou and their fourth round selection was moved for Mike Green. Edmonton may or may not have their 3rd round selection as they can...

Some More Goalie Talk

September 7, 2020 - 2:23 PM ET

Apologies for not posting anything over the last couple of days. I haven't slept in days... doing research, interviewing as many people as possible, solving mathematical equations, all to come to one realization that I will share with you all right now. Are you all sitting at the edges of your sea...

September 8, 2020 - 2:37 PM ET

A Way Too Early Look At The Expansion Draft

September 10, 2020 - 6:57 PM ET

Jump ahead to the distant future of 2021. COVID19 is not only a thing of the past but the vaccine developed also increases your lifespan by ten years and has the extra added side effect of people becoming interested in that story where you caught a trout that was "this big." The Edmonton Oiler...

Are There Any More Bjugstad's Out There?

September 14, 2020 - 1:04 PM ET

Hello everyone and a happy Monday morning to you all. Apologies for a lack of weekend reading for you but real life decided to intervene... yes it will shock many of you to know that I do in fact have a real life. I digress. Over the weekend, another move was made by Penguins GM Jim Rutherfor...

Let's Talkarov About Askarov

September 16, 2020 - 3:41 PM ET

Follow @SMaloughney Edmonton is currently slated to select 14th overall in the 2020 Draft. A few blogs ago I misspoke when I stated that this draft class wasn't the best in recent history. Alexis Lafreniere, the dynamic winger is the consensus first overall selection in this draft. Looking at...

Prospect Profiles - Dawson Mercer and Seth Jarvis

September 18, 2020 - 1:18 PM ET

Follow @SMaloughney In my last blog I spoke about how the Edmonton Oilers should avoid selecting a potential longer term project like Yaroslav Askarov, instead focusing on one of the high ceiling forwards instead. The 2020 Draft is absolutely a forwards draft and aside from a couple of prolific...

September 21, 2020 - 8:14 PM ET

As if there was ever any doubt. The votes are in and the announcement is official. Not only did Leon Draisaitl win the Art Ross for the most points in the League, scoring 110 points in a shortened season but he has now been giving more hardware with the Ted Lindsay and Hart trophies. Leon Dra...

The Next Two Weeks Must Be Big For The Oilers

September 24, 2020 - 12:32 PM ET

Give me a Follow @SMaloughney Two weeks from today we will know which team hoisted the Stanley Cup, what happened at the NHL Draft, and how much cap space the Oilers will have going into Free Agency. I do not believe it is alarmist attitude to state that the Edmonton Oilers 20/21 season hangs on w...

In No Particular Order: Ryan, Wennberg, DeBrusk

September 28, 2020 - 11:47 AM ET

I've got a couple of buyouts to discuss with you all, as well as an intriguing trade rumour. Grab your second Monday coffee and let's get to it. BOBBY RYAN The Ottawa Senators have bought out 33 year old right winger, Bobby Ryan. Bobby Ryan would have made 7.5 million in actual salary both t...
