Found March 05, 2012 on Kukla's Korner:
The news broke last night that Taylor Hall did not participate in the team’s Sunday practice, ailing from an shoulder injury suffered Friday night against the Dallas Stars. Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal quoted head coach Tom Renney who stated: “This was a maintenance day here for Taylor. Obviously, he’s had some issues with his shoulder and T.D. (Forss, the trainer) thought it best that he stay off the ice to let it settle down. We hope he can play.” Continue reading "Oilers Recall Omark"

Linus Omark in, Taylor Hall out

Taylor Hall, who aggravated a shoulder injury he's been dealing with on Friday, didn't practice with the Edmonton Oilers on Sunday. According to Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal, the former No. 1 overall pick may not play tonight against Anaheim. Certainly, the Oilers could use one of their top players in the lineup against a surging team like the Ducks, but they'...

Taylor Chorney: “Things are Trending Up”

Defenceman Taylor Chorney was drafted by the Edmonton Oilers in the second round of the 2005 entry draft and it seems that 7 years later, his time with the organization may be at an end. Chorney has spent the majority of his season with the Oklahoma City Barons and this summer while the Oilers iced a young and often times injured blue line.  This summer, Chorney needs a new contract...

Richard Cloutier: Unsportsmanlike Conduct - Whine and Moan Edition

Is it ever hard to find inspiration to write a blog when your team of choice is completely out of the playoff race and the trade deadline is over. To kill time, I'll comment on random Oilers stuff. - Taylor Hall has a shoulder injury and could be out against the Ducks on Monday. It's possible Linus Omark will be called up to take his place. Not a bad idea. Since motivation...

Richard Cloutier: Fail for Nail is Back On

I made a decision just now: I'm gonna cheer against the Oilers the rest of the season. Yep. I want them to lose and finish 30th again. Why? - Finishing last gives the team the best chance of picking 1st overall and taking Nail Yakupov if we wish. He's suppose to have 40 goal per season NHL potential, and that, combined with the offensive skills belonging to Taylor...

Richard Cloutier: The One Thing Worse Than Losing Because of Injuries

I can remember a season not too long ago when the Oilers couldn't buy a victory because half the roster was hurt. The good news is, the Oilers are healthy right now. The bad? They suck. A few injuries might actually be helpful at this point, because sometimes they help motivate lesser players to work harder. Here's the positives from tonight's Oilers/Ducks game: ...

Steve Palumbo: Flyin' Ryan, the Finnish Flash, Incredible Corey and Hiller Time + Numbers

The Ducks survived to live another day after dispatching the Edmonton Oilers 4-2 in front a good crowd at the Honda Center. Thanks to a light Monday night schedule around the NHL, the win allowed to Ducks to gain two points on idle San Jose. The only downside to that is the Sharks now have three-games in hand on Anaheim. Here are my notes from the game... - I was at the...

Oilers-Ducks Preview

With their playoff hopes fading fast, a game against the Edmonton Oilers might be just what the Anaheim Ducks need. The Ducks try to continue their dominance over the lowly Oilers when they meet Monday night at Honda Center. Anaheim (28-28-10) has dropped three of four and is seven points out of playoff position with 16 games remaining. The Ducks squandered a chance to gain ground...

Time To Give John Tortorella Much Deserved Credit

Since John Tortorella took over as New York Rangers coach for Tom Renney, the results have left most Rangers fans with a bitter taste in their mouths. After Tom Renney led the Rangers to a playoff appearance in every season that he was head coach coming out of the lockout, John Tortorella has just two [...]
