Hey, so tonight's Oilers/Ducks game. Considering both teams are completely out of the playoff race and the game was meaningless, they gave us lots to talk about.
- Teemu Night in Anaheim. The Oilers Teemu Hartikainen got two goals, and looked great playing on a line with Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Jordan Eberle. The Ducks Teemu Selanne got a goa...

Few among the Ducks are more popular than George Parros, whose work on and off the ice over the past six seasons has made him a fan favorite.
But the enforcer's future with the team is cloudy now that he's become a regular healthy scratch over the last six weeks and has an expiring contract.
Unlike three years ago when the Ducks talked to him and got him locked up midway...
If you didn’t realize that it was April 1st this morning, the latest Oilers’ press release may have caught you off guard:
Setting an unprecedented sporting spectacle, Oilers President and COO Patrick LaForge announced Sunday the Edmonton Oilers issued a challenge to the Edmonton Eskimos to go head-to-head in a two-game, total-point series later this spring. In addition to bragging...
Teemu Hartikainen gave Edmonton an early lead with his first two goals of the season, Devan Dubnyk made 32 saves and the Oilers beat Anaheim 2-1 on Sunday night in the Ducks' final home game of the season.
Teemu Selanne scored for the Ducks, and Jonas Hiller stopped 13 shots. Hiller, who has set franchise records with 70 starts and 71 appearances, finished his home slate 19...
Cam Fowler of the Anaheim Ducks was one of the higher profile rookies in the NHL last year. As an 18 year old he played a significant role with the Ducks. He showed some offensive prowess scoring 40 points from defence. The problem was he wasn’t much of a defensive player. He had the worst team and zone adjusted Corsi rating in the league last year. Anaheim Duck fans...
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Teemu Hartikainen gave Edmonton an early lead with his first two goals of the season, Devan Dubnyk made 32 saves and the Oilers beat Anaheim 2-1 on Sunday night in the Ducks' final home game of the season.

Fan Appreciation Night at the Honda Center and the final home game of the year in Anaheim. Possibly the final home game of Teemu Selanne's illustrious career. Clearly the Edmonton Oilers did not get the memo and spoiled any chance of Anaheim finishing off the season at home on a high note by earning a 2-1 victory over the Ducks. There did seem to be a memo stating that...

Imagine growing up in Southern California; the land of sun, surf and hockey. Anaheim Ducks prospect Emerson Etem is the latest name to be added to an ever-increasing list of players from the United States’ left coast.
Etem grew up in Long Beach, a beach city located in Los Angeles County. It’s an area more...
The Anaheim Ducks have hit the wall....hard. In fact they are stumbling so bad towards the season's finish line it's starting to dim the glow of a wonderful six week run that made them relevant again. Losers of three of four, including two in a row the Ducks look more like the team that limped off the starting line, way back in October. Anaheim is just 4-5-1 in their last...
It's a brand-new episode of All The Kings Men where Podmaster General Jesse Cohen and myself take a look at tonight's big match-up between the Los Angeles Kings and Edmonton Oilers with Scott Reynolds from the notorious Jack Johnson Hating Blog, The Copper & Blue.

The Pacific Division is a strong one this season with four teams within two points of each other. And then there are the Ducks. Not even close as a result of a really bad first half of the season.The Ducks could have put a crimp in Phoenix's season by defeating them, but instead, the Coyotes demonstrated why they have a good chance at winning the division and doing well in...
Oilers beat Ducks (no April fools joke) 2-1
Three first period goals and all scored by a Teemu, this was an NHL first in what may have been Teemu Selanne’s last home game as a member of the Anaheim Ducks. While fans filled the lower bowl with signs asking for one more year, Selanne remained mum on the subject.

It's safe to say that Teemu Selanne will get the biggest cheers during the Anaheim Ducks' home finale Sunday night.
Selanne has not yet committed to returning for the 2012-13 season as he takes the ice at home for the final time this season when the Ducks meet the Edmonton Oilers.
The veteran winger will turn 42 in July but continues to be productive, leading Anaheim (33...

Here's the tricky thing about the Oilers rebuild: Half of the current roster, if you ask me, is questionable. Two years into a five year plan...only half-there with respect to roster. It's not a very comfortable position to be in.
But are the Oilers even half way there?
Line 1: Taylor Hall - Ryan Nugent-Hopkins - Jordan Eberle (A-Okay)
Line 2: Left wing is a question...
