Found December 21, 2011 on Kukla's Korner:
While the Edmonton Oilers have been struggling as of late to find wins, their AHL and WHL affiliates have found themselves in the exact opposite situation. The Oilers have still played some exciting hockey, and of course the future looks bright but while the Oilers are falling towards the bottom of the NHL, the Barons are sitting on top of the AHL, and the Oil Kings’ strung together 11 wins before their Christmas break.

Edmonton Oilers Team Report

 Edmonton Oilers fans simply cannot be happy with the way the NHL season has unfolded thus far. This is a hockey team that flew out of the gate in October, 9-4-2 in their first 15 games. It is unbelievable that this is the same Edmonton Oilers team now, 5-13-1 in their last 19 games. There has been virtually no improvement over last season. The Edmonton Oilers are steadily falling...

Oilers' Paajarvi happy with his demotion

Magnus Paajarvi is being optimistic at a time when many players would be pessimistic. Drafted two years ago by Edmonton, there was lots of hope that the left wing could be one of the young players to help lead the Oilers back to respectability. While Paajarvi was serviceable in last year's rookie campaign, he was spending far too much time this season munching on press box...

Magnum PS Headlines Baron Roster

The Oilers have a couple of days off, but the OKC Barons head into the break with a game in Charlotte this evening. Magnus Paajarvi will play in his 3rd AHL game. It's been tough to get a read on the OKC story this season. Injuries have had a major impact on the individual players, so the boxcars are tough to read. With the game tonight OKC will take a Christmas break, so I thought...

Red Wings 3, Oilers 2

Drew Miller scored with 4:15 remaining in the third period and the Detroit Red Wings beat the Edmonton Oilers 3-2 Monday night. Dan Cleary and Jiri Hudler also scored for Detroit, which has won 12 of its last 15 games. Ryan Jones and Jordan Eberle had Edmonton's goals. The Oilers have lost four in a row and nine of 11. Detroit started the scoring four and a half minutes into...

The Joy of Losing

Being an Edmonton Oilers fan born after the glory years has not been easy. We suffered through years of mediocrity and terrible drafting in the ’90’s, rode a wave of momentum all the way to the Cup finals in 2006, and then came crashing down once Mr. Pronger asked for his way out of town. After the run to the Cup, things got really bad in the City of Champions. The Oilers started...

Oilers Lose Fourth Consecutive Game

Oilers lose 3-2 to the Red Wings The Edmonton Oilers continue on their annual December downward spiral. Where oh where are the Oilers of October?  With this loss to the Red Wings, the Oilers have now lost all but two games for the entire month of December. Of course there are some players that don’t look as though they are on a losing team, but the players struggling are definitely...

Room Service

I got into an interesting conversation today with a friend. The discussion surrounded what the Oilers might want in return for Ales Hemsky. I've operated under the assumption that Hemsky leaving would mean the Oilers getting an established defender in return. My buddy suggests the Oilers badly need a power forward, or at least a forward with size to add a physical element to...

Miller helps Wings hold off Oilers

EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) -- Drew Miller scored with 4:15 remaining in the third period and the Detroit Red Wings beat the Edmonton Oilers 3-2 Monday night. Dan Cleary and Jiri Hudler also scored for Detroit, which has won 12 of its last 15 games. Ryan Jones and Jordan Eberle had Edmonton's goals. The Oilers have lost four in a row and nine of 11. Detroit started the scoring...

Sale On Sail On, Sailor

Every week or so, other NHL teams are extending their soon-to-be free agents and restricted free agents. Recent examples include David Krejci in Boston, Victor Hedman in Tampa, Niklas Kronwall in Detroit and Braydon Coburn in Philly. The Edmonton Oilers have all kinds of things to do in the next few months. I imagine one of them will be to evaluate their soon-to-be free agents and...

Red Wings vs Oilers Recap

Good road win, for sure. It wasn't pretty, but 2 points are 2 points.Full recap after the jump: Just to get it out of the way, the second goal was offsides. Looked close live, but replay showed it was quite offsides. Thankfully it didn't cost the Wings anything other than a slight ***** in Howard's GAA. The reason I brought it up though was because the same thing happened...

G34 Wild at Oilers

The Edmonton Oilers have been hitting line drives lately, but they've been loud outs instead of doubles into the gap. The Minnesota Wild are "death to fun" and are experiencing a market correction. This isn't exactly "guaranteed win night" but Edmonton has a good chance should they play with the kind of effort we saw the last two games.Coach Renney has...

Red Wings-Oilers game-day updates: business as usual on a ‘later-breaking’ day

As the Detroit Red Wings prepare to face off against the Edmonton Oilers tonight (9:30 PM EST, FSD/Sportsnet West/WXYT), the Wings are just wrapping up their morning skate in Edmonton, and given the workload to come in three games over the next four nights, no news is good news, per MLive’s Ansar Khan... Everyone at the skate. Same lines 93-13-44, 51-40-26, 11-43-20, 48-8-96....
