G40: Oilers @ Coyotes - Shocked The Oilers Can't Score + Pulj on The Block

January 2, 2019 - 3:05 PM ET

Follow @SMaloughney Edmonton is amazing… (flips over cue-card) ly bad at scoring goals. Yesterday Ryan Rishaug reported this little snippet which caused some to raise their eyebrows. RNH McDavid and Draisaitl just left the ice, Hitchcock kept everyone else out to keep doing drills.— Ryan...

A Thought On A Friday - Oilers and Leafs as Trading Partners

January 4, 2019 - 12:22 PM ET

Follow @SMaloughney Edmonton has doesn't play again until tomorrow so in the meantime I hope you all enjoy the end of your work week and ponder this. There have been some rumblings as of late that Edmonton might be looking at Toronto for opportunities to improve their forward depth. The Leafs a...

G41: Oilers @ Kings - Draisaitl's An All-Star

January 5, 2019 - 5:15 PM ET

Follow @SMaloughney There are three things in life that are certain; death, taxes, and people complaining about the All-Star rosters. At the end of the day the All-Star Game is a promotional event that is for kids, and for the NHL to make more money off their most marketable players. Having s...

G42: Oilers @ Ducks - Just Over Halfway Done

January 6, 2019 - 5:25 PM ET

Follow @SMaloughney We are officially over the halfway mark of the season and the likelihood of the Oilers have a miraculous second half of the season looks bleak at best. The injury to Klefbom took a massive toll on this team but by no means should the loss of a single player cripple an entire tea...

Not Just Bad Puck Luck

January 9, 2019 - 4:02 PM ET

Apologies for not getting a blog up for you all yesterday, ended up having to be away from a computer for the day. Now onto last nights game. I saw a number of media outlets discussing how the Oilers lost due to some unfortunate puck luck. Yes there were some unfortunate bounces that resulted...

G44: Panthers @ Oilers - Who Is Part of The Decision Process?

January 10, 2019 - 6:59 PM ET

Tonight Brandon Manning will sit for the third straight game. The left shot defenceman, who is making 2.25 million dollars a year, until the end of next season will sit tonight. The defenceman most outlets called untradeable by Chicago will not be dressed tonight by Ken Hitchcock. The defenceman...

G45: Coyotes @ Oilers - Wild Card Spot Is The Only Option

January 12, 2019 - 3:51 PM ET

The gap between the top three teams in the Pacific division and everyone else is significant. In the Bettman era of loser points a gap of 4 points is significant to over; currently there is a 12 point gap between Vegas and the next Pacific team Anaheim. Edmonton's only hope of making the playo...

G46: Sabres @ Oilers - A Winnable Stretch Of Games

January 14, 2019 - 11:19 AM ET

Of the 45 games the Oilers have played thus far this season, 31 of those games have been against Western opponents; their record in those games is 14-15-2. Edmonton has faired slightly better against the few games it has played against the East, going 7-6-1 in 14 games. There are six teams Edmonto...

Everything is Awesome

January 15, 2019 - 11:26 AM ET

Last night the excellent Edmonton Oilers who are 4-6-0 in their last name absolutely dominated the Buffalo Sabres who are 3-6-1 in their last 10 games. The Oilers released a torrent of goals onto the unsuspecting Buffalo away team. Such a brilliant display must mean that Edmonton dominated the sho...

G47: Canucks @ Oilers - Enjoying The Successes

January 16, 2019 - 12:03 PM ET

Being an Oiler fan is a rough gig. The highs and lows of a season are as tall as Everest and go as deep as the Mariana's Trench. The ownership group has made a series of baffling trades and moves while failing to address the real problems that plague this team. With all of the being said, the...

Jakob Silvferberg Checks Plenty Of Boxes For Edmonton

January 17, 2019 - 12:49 PM ET

I have been a fan of Silfverberg's game for a few years now, and since the Oilers traded Jordan Eberle, I have always felt he could be a solid replacement. As always Sean Tierney does an excellent job of making stats palatable, so take a look at this graph below:...

More Trade Proposals Feat Jake Muzzin + Guests

January 18, 2019 - 12:59 PM ET

Follow @SMaloughney I've got a few different blogs in the works right now. Over the next week or two we are going to talk about whether or not Khaira should be looked at as a long term top 6 option, which goaltender between Koskinen and Talbot should be signed after this season and potential optio...

G48: Flames @ Oilers - The Flames Are The Better Team

January 19, 2019 - 2:32 PM ET

The last couple days of trade proposals has been a fun break from reality. Sadly there is no Jake Muzzin, Jakob Silfverberg, or Tyler Toffoli coming to the rescue of Edmonton. Help may however come in the form of Oscar Klefbom. Klefbom has been sidelined the last 16 games with a broken finger a...

G49: Hurricanes @ Oilers - Troubling Statements

January 20, 2019 - 4:34 PM ET

Before I get into today's game breakdown or discuss last night's loss to the Flames I wanted to pull up two quotes from two different Oilers players. The first is from Connor McDavid from before the Oilers/Flames game. "We're not a team that scores alot of goals. We're not gonna go out and wi...
