Edmonton Oilers: In defense of signing Bryzgalov

When it comes to large contracts, I think they have no place in sports. As appealing as it seems to a General Manager, locking up a star player for a long-term deal can be more dangerous than advantageous. If you ask the Philadelphia Flyers, I think they may agree on this point. After Ilya Bryzgalov had a strong career with the Phoenix Coyotes, even bringing them to the playoffs...

Kari Lehtonen: the Dallas Stars’ hidden gem

Oilers' top draft pick could be available for defense

On Thursday Oilers GM Craig MacTavish met with the media and discussed the state of the team and where it stands right now with the Oilers continuing to struggle. He's frustrated -- "pissed,"...

Lehtonen, Stars blank Oilers

With the Dallas getting outplayed by Edmonton in the first half of the game, Shawn Horcoff credited Kari Lehtonen for giving the Stars a chance to get going. Lehtonen stopped 22 shots for his 23rd career shutout as the Stars beat the struggling Oilers 3-0 on Wednesday night. "He's one of the best in the league and he gives us a chance to win like that every night,"...

Igor Larionov On The Play Of The Oilers

from Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal, Larionov feels wingers, not just Yakupov, but presumably Oiler kids Taylor Hall and Jordan Eberle maybe should get more leeway. He certainly believes wingers have to help out, “but they have to score too. You have to have a balance,” he said. “You can’t play 70 per cent defence and 30 per cent offence. There’s 17,000 people...

Nail Yakupov vents over lack of Oilers playing time

Nail Yakupov is frustrated with his role with the Edmonton Oilers, and he’s not keeping his thoughts to himself.

Larionov has stated he is making a trip to Edmonton this...

Linus Omark scores phenomenal game-winning goal in AHL

Edmonton Oilers prospect Linus Omark has been stuck playing in the AHL with the Oklahoma City Barons for most of his career.  Omark is small, skilled forward and the Oilers have plenty of those, so Omark continues to dazzle in the AHL.  The YouTube sensation absolutely shredded San Antonio Rampage forward/Florida Panthers prospect Drew Shore and then buried a gorgeous shot past...

Tyler Seguin Scores From Own Zone on One Knee to Clinch Win Over Oilers (Video)

This is a different kind of scoring touch. The Dallas Stars held a one goal lead over the Edmonton Oilers with seconds to go in their Wednesday tilt.  The Oilers were pressing with their young, explosive talent, but Dallas coach Lindy Ruff chose to counter with a young star of his own: Tyler Seguin.

Taylor Hall has empathy for Yakupov

Taylor Hall has been struggling sophomore, so he knows that Nail Yakupov’s troubles aren’t the end of the world. “Everyone goes through phases,” said Hall. “Last year he had a great year. This year he’s struggled a bit but at the same time it’s not like he’s not giving an effort and it’s not like he doesn’t try. It’s what, his 65th game? I was at the end of...

Larsen plays the role of comic book villain Two-Face for Oilers

The microcosm of the good and bad Edmonton Oilers’ free-wheeling loss Sunday to the Chicago Blackhawks was defenceman Philip Larsen, who had three assists but still finished minus-three. “Three points, but I was on for four of their goals,” said Larsen. With Justin Schultz having missed the last five games with a sore groin, Larsen slid into his spot on the first power-play...
