Omark Flight Risk?

Joanne Ireland has the story via twitter this afternoon/evening. Her latest tweets:That was quick. L Omark, who has played one AHL game since Oilers sent him to OK City, has already said he may not be long for farm team.Omark told PuckLife Magazine that Oilers "have a lot of young guys and they believe in them more than me I think."Omark does have a clause in his contract...

G 13 Oilers at Coyotes

In all the noise and commotion of the first dozen sorties, some Oilers have been lost in the flood a little. No sophomore slump, no need to worry. Perhaps though, later in the season, another gear. Number 11: He can be the best player on the ice, or the worst, and sometimes he is both on the same shift. He can be as thrilling as any player on the team or, without apparent reason...

Like most, Linus Omark would rather be in Sweden than Oklahoma

During his time in the Edmonton Oilers organization, Linus Omark has earned a reputation as a pretty candid guy. At the close of last year's training camp, for instance, when the Swedish forward found himself with the AHL's Oklahoma City Barons after being one of the Oilers' final cuts, he blamed "politics" for the demotion. Then, at the season's end, although...

Richard Cloutier: The Oilers Need Hemsky Back

I really do like Ryan Jones. Heart and soul guy who will try to do any job you ask of him. He' not Ales Hemsky, though. The Oilers might have lost their last game, but their win/loss record continues to look pretty impressive. Perhaps even more impressive than their record is the fact that they are winning games with perhaps their two best veteran players, Ales Hemsky and Ryan...

Bunz Impresses

In his pre-season look at the WHL's Eastern Conference, Guy Flaming slotted the Medicine Hat Tigers at number 6. It's still early, but the Tigers--a team that lost several impact prospects from a year ago--is pushing toward the top of the table. One of the major reasons is goaler phenom Tyler Bunz.Bunz and Emerson Etem are playing with a very young group of teammates (four...

Hemsky Close

Ales Hemsky "took a more active role" at practice but wasn't skating on any of the lines yesterday. The lines and pairings remain the same, as Cam Barker also remains outside the starting roster. For the Oilers, this might be an ideal time to get 83 back in the lineup, as there are some legit bumps and bruises and the team is coming off their first loss in some time...

Oilers D Barker expected to return vs. Coyotes

Edmonton Oilers defenseman Cam Barker is expected to return to the ice for Saturday's game against the Phoenix Coyotes. The third overall pick of the 2004 draft, Barker has been sidelined since Sunday with a shoulder injury. "It's getting better every day," Barker told the Edmonton Sun. "I've never injured my shoulder before, so it's kind of new to...

Richard Cloutier: We're Goin' Streaking!

I am a total optimist when it comes to people. Always want to think the best about them. The time has come I break my silence. Taylor Hall, you owe Keith Madsen a signed Oilers jersey. Not one of those cheap imitation ones either. One of those new retro-road ones, please. K, so here's the story behind my complaint: I've been plugging my nephew's band recently. As it...

Oilers-Coyotes Preview

The Edmonton Oilers' offensive production has dipped slightly from the last two seasons when the club finished at the bottom of the NHL standings. But with the league's top goaltending, Edmonton is among the NHL's best teams so far and off to its quickest start in 25 years. Former Phoenix Coyotes star Nikolai Khabibulin will likely make his first start in Arizona in...
