Despite appearances, the Edmonton Oilers are relying far less on rookies this NHL season. The huge number of rookies from a year ago are still developing but at least the pace of new hires has slowed to a more normal rate. 11-12 Rookies (TOI)Ryan Nugent-Hopkins 658Corey Potter 549Anton Lander 395Lennart Petrell 282Colten Teubert 182Alex Plante 32Teemu Hartikainen 27Ryan O'Marra...
The Edmonton Oilers have recalled Gilbert Brule, Magnus Paajarvi and Ryan O'Marra from Oklahoma City. We can imply a few things from this transaction, including the fact that Teemu Hartikainen and Josh Green didn't impress enough in their latest cup of coffee. We await news today on Jordan Eberle's injury, and there's a chance Brule won't get through waivers.
Las Vegas in the olden days must have been something else. The NHL will be expanding soon, 2 more teams are required to make things work. Among the possible cities are Toronto 2.0, Quebec City, Las Vegas, Seattle, Kansas City. The old KC Scouts are in town tonight.Steve Tambellini could help this team by adding a veteran defenseman now. I understand the hope is that Ryan Whitney...
Edmonton Oil King and Edmonton Oilers’ prospect Kristians Pelss was named the Team Captain for his country, Latvia in the 2012 IIHF World Juniors Tournament. For Pelss, being the team captain, the only player drafted into the NHL, a player currently playing in Alberta, and one of the few players on the team that speaks English fluently made him a very popular man with the media...
We did this a couple of weeks ago but the Oilers road trip, injuries and zero talk about an Ales Hemsky extension get us here. The Oilers will be active from now to the deadline. Book it.INJURYThe road trip was a disaster on all levels, but losing RNH, Gilbert and Eberle is especially cruel. Edmonton sent down Teemu Hartikainen and Josh Green after the game and it's reasonable...
The Edmonton Oilers have finished last for the last two seasons and now with injuries mounting, the team has been in a bit of slide. Some are already expecting a third 30th place finish. It’s not as though the team has not been in games through their most recent roadtrip, but a loss by one goal is still a loss.
Just for fun, this is a comparison of the first half of this season...
The general manager of the Edmonton Oilers is "actively shopping" for an experienced defenseman, according to Eric Francis of the Calgary Sun. GM Steve Tambellini could try to swing a multi-player deal involving either winger Ales Hemsky or center Sam Gagner. The Carolina Hurricanes and Toronto Maple Leafs are rumored to be interested in dealing a blue-liner.There's...
Although they haven’t played a game since Saturday, the Edmonton Oilers have been busy. The team has recalled players from the farm team to fill in roster holes left by injured players and are clearly looking forward with their current roster, deciding who should stay and who should go ahead of the NHL trade deadline next month.

Anton Lander of the Edmonton Oilers got rocked by Steve Ott of the Dallas Stars on Saturday.
It was hard, fast, and a blind-sided hit. It even caused a ruckus between the two teams. And Oilers coach Tom Reeney says the hit to his player warrants a Shanaban.
Here’s what happened via the Score:
Ott received a two-minute penalty for the hit, and five for the fight.
The results are back, and better than expected for Oilers’ winger Jordan Eberle. Eberle who is the team points leader. Eberle is expected to miss 2-3 weeks in what is being referred to as a sprained knee.
“It’s never a good time for an injury, but I’m going to focus on getting healthy and getting back to the lineup as soon as I can.” Eberle told the Oilers. While the...
Thanks to the 101 injuries the Oilers currently have, this morning they called up from the minors Magnus Paajarvi and Ryan O'Marra. They also placed forward Gilbert Brule on re-entry waivers, with the intention of calling him up tomorrow if he clears.
My instant-analysis is as follows:
Paajarvi - Rumor is, the Oilers will give him an opportunity to play on one of the top...

The Oilers have signed Corey Potter to a two-year contract extension. I will edit/add financial details when they become available.
TUESDAY, JANUARY 10
COMING SOON: IN FOCUS
RAW: Renney Tuesday
PRACTICE: Corey Potter
Hi folks. I'm half-awake, so instead of writing a real blog (that requires thought), I offer to you some random thoughts. Enjoy these while you eat your morning bowl of Fruit Loops.
- Nice signing by the Oilers yesterday. Corey Potter is a quality third pairing defenseman, and his $800k (or so) per season contract for the next two is completely reasonable. Potter is happy...
