The NHL season is scarcely more than a week old but the rumour mill is already heating up and one of the teams at the center of it is Edmonton. Now, this is something we should maybe have expected considering the new GM didn’t get to scratch the itch of a “Bold Move” that he was so clearly trying to make in the off-season. Edmonton is loaded with talent up front and considerably weaker in al...

Hall says Oilers have to tune out wildly swinging mood of fans

Taylor Hall can understand fans’ frustration. Things were bad in Edmonton long before he showed up on the scene as the first piece of the rebuilding puzzle. But even Hall admits getting booed off the ice after the second period in the second home game of the season Monday seemed harsh. Good thing the Edmonton Oilers came back to beat the New Jersey Devils 5-4 in a shootout to...

Dave Bolland giving Maple Leafs good value

There was something in Dave Bolland’s eyes that told Jon MacWilliams the kid would be a pretty good hockey player. Bolland had been cut from other novice and minor atom AAA teams in the GTHL but when he played for the North York Rangers the head coach took him under his wing and helped him develop. “He wasn’t a very good skater but he had this look in his eyes” MacWilliams...

Arcobello trying to make most of opportunity with Edmonton Oilers

Being the opportunist that he is Mark Arcobello managed to turn a training camp audition into a spot in the Edmonton Oilers’ opening day lineup. He then parlayed that appearance at centre into another game. So even when Ryan Nugent-Hopkins was ready to return Arcobello was able to hold down a spot in the lineup which also meant the Oilers could then move Taylor Hall back to left...

Joffrey Lupul is latest forward to miss Maple Leafs practice

The Toronto Maple Leafs are already banged-up at forward and now they might have to play without Joffrey Lupul. Lupul did not practise Wednesday before the team was set to fly to Nashville to face the Predators. The winger was replaced on the second line by AHL call-up Josh Leivo. Lupul who missed the start of training camp with back spasms played 18:38 in the Leafs' loss to...

Oilers rally, beat Devils in shootout

The Edmonton Oilers certainly didn't take the easy route to their first win of the season. Jordan Eberle and David Perron scored in the shootout for the Oilers, who erased a three-goal deficit in the third period against goalie Martin Brodeur and beat the New Jersey Devils 5-4 on Monday night. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Andrew Ference, Perron, and Taylor Hall all scored their first...

Maple Leafs-Predators Preview

The short-handed Toronto Maple Leafs are expected to get at least one player back following their first loss of the season, but the status of their leading scorer is unknown. Joffrey Lupul is dealing with an injured calf but will travel with the Maple Leafs for Thursday night's game against the Nashville Predators. The Maple Leafs (3-1-0) are missing Mark Fraser, Nikolai Kulemin...

Leafs to start goalie Jonathan Bernier against Colorado Avalanche

Jonathan Bernier will start in goal Tuesday night when the Maple Leafs face the Colorado Avalanche and put their undefeated 3-0 record on the line. The Leafs — whose sterling record is tainted by an NHL-leading 50 turnovers so far — will be making a game-time decision on centre Jay McLement who was with his wife who went into labour. McLement one of the club’s most reliable...

Colin Dambrauskas: Leafs Not Deep Enough For Win Over Avs; Is Reimer Becoming Expendable?

Follow Colin on Twitter!: @ColinDJD The Toronto Maple Leafs took on a young Colorado Avalanche squad last night who handed them their first loss of the season. With a handful of regulars missing and a line made of Toronto Marlies players, the team simply didn’t look very good. With Nikolai Kulemin out with a broken ankle, David Clarkson serving another 7 games of his...

Avalanche remains unbeaten by beating Maple Leafs 2-1

Three games into its season the Avalanche already has accomplished something it didn't all of last season in a 48-game lockout-shortened year: win three in a row. Tuesday night in Toronto the Avs of 2013-14 accomplished something it has never done since moving to Denver: get out to a 3-0 start. Hard as it is to believe for a team with two Stanley Cups on its shelf since 1995...

Canadiens-Oilers Preview

After a disappointing start, the Edmonton Oilers collected their first two points in thrilling fashion last time out. They're hoping to have gotten their early-season nerves out of their system. Edmonton tries to build on its first win Thursday night when it hosts the Montreal Canadiens. While the Oilers (1-2-0) fell 5-4 to Winnipeg in their season opener and 6-2 at Vancouver...

Oilers rewrite tired script with comeback win over New Jersey Devils

The script is seven years old. Fans in Edmonton have seen it a hundred times before. The Oilers start slow. Lethargic second period. Mediocre goaltending. Come to life in the third period. Make a game of it. Make a late costly mistake. Lose. You can set your NHL entry draft by the tragic and well-worn storyline. And Monday at night against the New Jersey Devils they followed...
