Found October 31, 2011 on HockeyBuzz:
7-2-2. 1st place in the Western Conference. Solid special teams. Great goaltending. Players who love their team and work together. Who stole the "real" Edmonton Oilers? What have you done with them? October was ridiculous for this team. My pre-October prediction had the Oilers optimistically finishing with a 5-6 record. Not many people predicted .500 hockey. No one predicted a 1st place reco...

Oilers in the Midst of a Five Game Win Streak

Ryan Smyth The Oilers are off to an improbable start on the 2011-2012 season, pushing their win streak to five games after defeating the Blues 4-2 on Sunday. Currently sitting atop the Northwest division with a record of 7-2-2, there isn’t particularly one skater that stands out. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Ryan Smyth each have five goals, followed by Jordan Eberle and the highly...

Goaltending One Of The Good Stories In Edmonton

from Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal, The trick for an NHL team to win many games before Halloween is to be treated to strong performances by the club’s masked men. As the Edmonton Oilers (6-2-0-2) prepare for their best October in 10 years — they were 9-4-1 in the first month of the 2001-02 season — their goaltending has been stellar. Nikolai Khabibulin and Devan Dubnyk...

Decision 2012

Ales Hemsky is one week away (or so) from returning to the Oilers. One of the most important decisions in this season (and the last few years) is what to do with 83. He's a world class entertainer, he can do things others cannot, he helps offensively on a team that (even in the current heady days) badly needs it. Signing Hemsky would give the Oilers exceptional depth on the skill...

G11 Blues at Oilers

This is Garry Unger. He was the second bona fide "superstar" for the St. Louis Blues (the first was Red Berenson). Unger had a fine NHL career; although well short of a HOFer, Unger's ability to score goals made him one of the NHL's best players in the Western Division for most of his career. Unger's career took some time to take off, owing mostly to impatience...
