Posted
The Oilers are through 20 games and own a 7-11-2 record. They’re sitting in 14th in the Western Conference and need 87 points in their next 62 games in order to match their 103-point total from last season. Times are stressful in Edmonton. Just as Oilers fans thought the Decade of Darkness ...

As fun as it was to sleep in the back of our Toyota RAV4 in campgrounds, KOAs and national parks on both sides of the border, our October trip to Arizona showed us the limitations of this method of camping.For starters, we were refused entry to our ...

Posted
General disappointment indeed. Final Score: 6-3 After Thursday night’s disaster against the St. Louis Blues, Edmonton needed to respond with a much better effort. I mean, the bar to clear was pretty low as far as playing better than they did against the Blues but it was something that neede...

Game Day Notes: Edmonton Oilers at Dallas Stars

The major item today is a possible shakeup of the McDavid Line. Todd McLellan mentioned it as a possibility (via Reid Wilkins) and we’ll see. Jason Gregor wrote about exactly that yesterday. Edmonton has an early (EARLY) game today, perhaps the club will begin with the usual lines and then ...

Cammalleri, Jokinen and Pouliot
On the surface, the trade of Jussi Jokinen for Mike Cammalleri makes sense for both the Edmonton Oilers and the Los Angeles Kings. Both players are capable NHL forwards in the late stages of their careers. They were both recently bought out of their contracts following the 2016/17 season, and the...

I knew there were freshwater leeches and saltwater leeches and that they, unlike snakes, really were slimy to the touch. Her parents wanted her to be a doctor, of course; medical history tells us th...
