The Edmonton Oilers have had a slow start to the 2013 NHL season and were set to face off against the Montreal Canadiens on Tuesday night. Prior to the game, Canadiens’ forward Lars Eller described the Oilers play “like a junior team sometimes”.
“They take a lot risks, a lot of chances.” Eller continued. “They’re a little all over the place. There’s not a lot of structure always in their game. It can really be anything. You don’t know.”
When asked about Eller’s comments following their game, Oilers head coach Dallas Eakins had this to say, “He may as well have sent me a fruit basket and a bottle of wine. It was a great gift.”
The Canadiens ended up losing the game 4-3 and Eller did not even record a point.
Does that make the Canadiens a junior team? I don’t think so.

Lars Eller wasn’t in the Canadiens dressing room Tuesday night following his team’s 4-3 loss to the Edmonton Oilers so he wasn’t available to clarify his comments of earlier in the day.
Eller had suggested that the Oilers “play a little bit like a junior team” and oh my did Edmonton coach Dallas Eakins and his team get some mileage out of that.

More tough injury news for the Edmonton Oilers — winger Taylor Hall will be out four weeks with a knee injury according to general manager Craig MacTavish.
Hall was hurt Saturday versus the Senators in Ottawa. For the 21-year-old it’s just the latest entry in an injury log that’s already fairly long for a player his age.
The Oilers (2-6-1) are also still without center Sam...
from Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal,
With the trading of the NHL’s best stache, Mike Brown, to San Jose — let us hope Brown packed more than one suit because the Sharks are on a five-game road trip, with four left, and the Oilers are just winding up a 12-day six-gamer — the Edmonton Oilers opened up a spot on their 50-man max reserve list....

The Edmonton Oilers finally got some good news in the form of a 3-1 victory at Ottawa on Saturday and a strong performance by goaltender Devan Dubnyk but the thrill of victory was suppressed due to Taylor Hall’s injury.
Hall injured his knee after an inadvertent knee-on-knee collision with the Senators’ Eric Gryba. Hall returned to Edmonton to be evaluated and the best-case...
Montreal Canadiens forward Brandon Prust will be out for the next four weeks with a shoulder injury, as per the team’s official Twitter account. Prust suffered the injury after crashing hard into the boards in the 3rd period in the team’s 2-1 loss to the Nashville Predators.
With forward Daniel Briere also leaving the game with a concussion, the team has recalled forwards Patrick...
This morning started off with the official announcement that Taylor Hall will miss the next 4 weeks with an ACL injury. If it rains it pours in Edmonton and the injury bug never seems to go away. The Oilers will now be forced to play without, arguably, their best player and certainly their top LW. Hallâs hit from Gryba looked concerning at the time, as it should when knees collide...
Already without Taylor Hall the Edmonton Oilers will close out their six-game road trip against the Montreal Canadiens without Ryan Smyth. And they may also be lining up without Jordan Eberle.
Eberle missed the last two days of practice while Smyth has returned to Edmonton with an unspecified injury. He did skate on Sunday.
That has opened the door for Tyler Pitlick who was recalled...
Injuries are mounting for the Montreal Canadiens.
The Edmonton Oilers are in no position to offer any sympathy.
With Danny Briere and Brandon Prust being added to the lengthy injury list, the Canadiens will try to rebound from their most recent result and beat the Oilers for the second time in less than two weeks Tuesday night.
Montreal (5-3-0) has eight players on injured reserve...
To add to the headaches for the Edmonton Oilers, who have started 2-6-1 and are currently languishing at the bottom of the Western Conference standings, they will have to play the next month with winger Taylor Hall.
Hall left Saturday afternoon's game against Ottawa after colliding with Senators defenseman Eric Gryba.
