G52: Oilers @ Flames - Need The Points

February 1, 2020 - 10:51 AM ET

Apologies, I am writing this on the road so this will be a bit of a condensed blog. Edmonton did exactly what they needed against the St Louis Blues and showed up to play a full game. After going up 2-0 with a beauty from Leon and a seeing eye shot from Caleb Jones the Blues started to push back....

G53: Oilers @ Coyotes - A Wager

February 4, 2020 - 2:58 PM ET

Before I get into this blog, I first wanted to say I've sent a little wager over to my fellow blogger James Tanner. The terms are simple. Whoever loses tonight's game has to write a post game wrap up blog that is pro-opposing team. With that said, let's get into some pre-game coverage. Edm...

A Deal Is A Deal

February 5, 2020 - 3:19 PM ET

The Edmonton Oilers, and therefore I lost fair and square last night to James Tanner and his Arizona Coyotes. With that said, here are my thoughts on last night's contest. After intense and emotional games against the Calgary Flames and St Louis Blues, the Edmonton Oilers may have expected to ro...

G54: Sharks @ Oilers - Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

February 6, 2020 - 1:21 PM ET

As the title suggests, at the bottom of this blog you will see a clip from the movie Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. My goal is to find a logical way to incorporate each of those words as a topic to cover in this game day blog. Wish me luck. TINKER Throughout this season the Oilers lineup has cha...

G55: Predators @ Oilers - Kick In The Pants

February 8, 2020 - 2:22 PM ET

In an 82 game schedule, teams are going to lose games and will also go on some losing skids. Tonight the Oilers are in danger of going on a three game losing streak, something they have only had happen once this entire season. From December 8th to December 14th, the Oilers went on a four game l...

Nothing Wrong With Benson Being Sent Down

February 9, 2020 - 5:03 PM ET

Today the Edmonton Oilers announced that winger Tyler Benson was sent back down to the Bakersfield Condors. Benson played just two games for Edmonton, registering a single shot, a hit, a giveaway and was on the ice for one goal against. He played just under 10 minutes in his first game against San...

Darnell Nurse Inks New Deal

February 10, 2020 - 12:01 PM ET

Over the past few weeks, people have been concerned with the reports on Darnell Nurse and his camp using Jacob Trouba's 8 million dollar a year contract as a starting point for negotiations. Agents typically start use the highest possible comparable they can and work their way down. There was no c...

G56: Blackhawks @ Oilers - McDavid Injured

February 11, 2020 - 2:05 PM ET

The information highway that is the internet and social media can be a brilliant tool when used correctly. Problems only arise when the need to release information outweighs the ability to hold off and ensure the information you are releasing is correct. As a blogger here on HockeyBuzz, my job i...

A few bits of information have dropped in the last 24 hours so to tide you over until what should be an exciting game between the Lightning and Oilers, here is another episode of In No Particular Order. SLEPYSHEV TO RETURN? Anton Slepyshev once once one of Edmonton's more NHL capable prospects...

G57: Oilers @ Lightning - Again and Again and Again

February 13, 2020 - 1:02 PM ET

Before I jump into the gameday blog stuff I wanted to repost something I brought up in my blog from yesterday for those who didn't see it. During tonight's game I will be tracking one Oilers player for the entire game, recording everything that occured while they were on the ice. I'll then post...

Player Tracker - Kailer Yamamoto vs Lightning

February 14, 2020 - 1:37 PM ET

You voted on it and I deliver. Here is a full breakdown of Kailer Yamamoto's game versus the Tampa Bay Lightning. There is a ton of reading here so for those who may not want to go through everything, I've bolded the shifts I felt were of note. As well, at the very end of the blog I provided a li...

G58 - Oilers @ Panthers - Kassian Gets 7

February 15, 2020 - 1:09 PM ET

Zack Kassian pulled an absolutely idiotic move against the Tampa Bay Lightning. After getting tangled up with Erik Cernak, as Kassian was trying to get back up he kicked Cernak in the chest. In case people forgot, Kassian has a blade attached to his foot. It doesn't matter if it was reactionary...

Leon Draisaitl Deserves The Hart

February 17, 2020 - 3:47 PM ET

At the end of the 2011-2012 season, Evgeni Malkin was awarded the Hart Memorial Trophy. Malkin's 109 point season (50-59-109) was the best in the league and the only player who broke the 100 point mark. Malkin did all of this while Sidney Crosby was out most of the season with a concussion and hel...

February 18, 2020 - 1:07 PM ET

After spending most of the season without injuries to any critical members of the team, the Edmonton Oilers continue to get all their bad luck in one big pile. The club announced on Tuesday that defenseman Oscar Klefbom will be out the next 2-3 weeks with a shoulder injury. Oscar played against th...

G60: Bruins @ Oilers - Bouchard Recalled

February 19, 2020 - 3:15 PM ET

There are few things in this world I hate. People who use the phrase "furthermore" in arguments because they think it makes them sound smart, people who changes lanes without signalling, and those horrifying individuals who when they buy something from a store and it doesn't have a price tag on it...

Ken Holland Presser Thoughts

February 20, 2020 - 3:08 PM ET

When it was announced that Ken Holland would speak with the media after practice on Thursday, fans collectively held their breath expecting the worst. Was this going to be an update on Connor McDavid, telling us he would be out another month? Luckily this was not the case and the whole press con...

G61: Wild @ Oilers - Don't Play Down

February 21, 2020 - 5:37 PM ET

Resilient might be the best single word to describe the 19/20 version of the Edmonton Oilers. Everything we have seen up to now has shown us that this is in fact a playoff team. They are not and should not be viewed as a contending team yet but we have seen enough to show us that this is a team th...

G62: Oilers @ Kings - McDavid Returns + Deadline Approaching

February 23, 2020 - 4:43 PM ET

After missing the past six games, Connor McDavid makes his triumphant return back into the Oilers lineup. Over this past stretch Edmonton has gone 3-2-1 without their captain and best player and with the exception of a lackluster performance (again) versus the Minnesota Wild, the Oilers played some...
