PLAYERS: Shawn Horcoff
TEAMS: Edmonton Oilers
I had to go watch this Oz movie on the weekend. You know, the Wizard of Oz prequel? Disney is shameless, and Mila Kunis is in black leather pants... I don't have much to say in this blog so I'll keep it brief. Why is everyone losing their minds over the wonderful, marvelous, awesome, incredible Shawn Horcoff? Come on people, have you all lost your minds? Residual damage from Daylight Savings, o...

Reeling Edmonton Oilers welcome back Shawn Horcoff

Perhaps captain Shawn Horcoff can save the Edmonton Oilers. That reeling team desperately needs a turning point and his return from a broken knuckle could provide that.With Horcoff in the lineup this season, the Oilers are 4-2-1. Without Horcoff, the team is 4-9-4.When healthy, he anchors Edmonton’s match-up line against the opponent’s top scorers. He will resume that role when...

Oilers G Dubnyk hurt in collision at net

Edmonton Oilers goalie Devan Dubnyk has left Sunday night's game against the Chicago Blackhawks after a collision at the net in the second period. Dubnyk made a nice pad save on a streaking Marian Hossa before the posts were dislodged when the right winger and Edmonton center Teemu Hartikainen converged on the goal. Hartikainen practically skated over the prone Dubnyk, who was...

Richard Cloutier: Oilers/Avalanche: Clash of the Titans?

Oilers/Avs set to go in a few hours. Will the Oilers be buried in snow, or will they...ummm, what does Oil do to snow? Make it greasy? A few notes going into the battle: - Ryan Jones is back. Oilers are saying Teemu Hartikainen has the flu. I think they needed to get Jones back playing and Hartikainen is a kid, and we all know how the Oilers deal with those. Jones will be playing...

Richard Cloutier: Oilers at the Trade Deadline!

The Edmonton Oilers will be in a strange position this year at the NHL Trade Deadline. It's creeping up on us...only 23 days away. Games-wise, only 10 games away. Of those 10, seven will be home games. While the Oilers aren't in a playoff position now, win 7 of 10 over the stretch and the Oilers could be buyers instead of sellers at the deadline. The Western Conference...

Richard Cloutier: Zero Dark Dubey + #FreeGardiner

Have we all calmed down about the Oilers hiring Scott Howson as a Pro Scout yet? Because I'd like to have a conversation with you about tonight's hockey game. Horcoffmania Continues Shawn Horcoff scored on a breakaway tonight after Gabriel Landeskog tripped over his own feet and the Avs goalie got completely distracted by it. And for the second game in a row, Horcoff...

TiqIQ Ticket Preview: Edmonton @ Colorado

By Matthew Feuerman of TiqIQ, In the crowded Northwest division, only five points separate the Edmonton Oilers (who are currently in fourth place) and the Minnesota Wild, who, while in first, sit there less than comfortably. One slot higher than the Oilers are the Avalanche, who, like the team from Edmonton, sit near .500 and feel the push to right the ship and succeed now rather...
