Matt Henderson: Oiler Mismanagement Of Defense Hindering Player Development

The Oilers are apparently so deep on the blueline within the organization that they cannot keep draft picks Martin Gernat and David Musil on the Barons’ roster. The two Oiler young Oiler assets have been sent down a rung on the organizational ladder to the ECHL’s Bakersfield Condors. Forgive me for my skepticism, however, about that Oiler depth on the back end. Sure, they...

The odds are in Oilers’ Prospect David Musil’s favour

For nearly every team in the WHL, the season ended just a game or two too soon. For the Edmonton Oil Kings, last year’s WHL champs, this especially rang true. The Oil Kings knew what it takes to get to the Memorial Cup, they had finished out their season there last year. And for many of the players on the roster, these were their final games of their junior careers.  Continue...

Adam French: Making the Czech World Junior Squad: Defense and Goalie

Defense: David Musil – The Oilers product is a very good shutdown defenseman that plays with a physical edge. He also has some growing offensive awareness. He’s been solid but unspectacular internationally but will now have a chance as the squad’s top defender to show what he can do. Marek Hrbas – Hrbas is another return player. The 5’11 defender...

David Musil Stays Positive

For some, hockey bloodlines run deep. And while those bloodlines may help a player get their foot in the door, that’s going to be as far as it can take you. At some point, talent has to take front and centre stage. With David Musil, his bloodlines helped develop him into a WHL player, but it was his talent that got him drafted 31st overall at the 2010 NHL entry draft, and a position...

David Musil Makes Rare Calgary Appearance

David Musil was the first son of an ex-Oiler drafted at the 2011 NHL entry draft in St. Paul Minnesota. You couldn’t help but wonder if he was selected for his bloodlines or his abilities, but knowing that Musil had been ranked anywhere from 23 (The Hockey News) and 38 (CSS for N.A. skaters) taking the defenceman at 31 was reasonable. When Steve Tambellini talked about the sons...

David Musil at the 2012 WJC

For the 2010 NHL entry draft there were several sons of former Oilers available, and the concern of whether or not those players may be selected for their blood ties before their hockey skills appeared real enough.  When it came to David Musil, son of Edmonton Oilers’ European scout Frank Musil, selected 31st overall, concerns were quickly set aside. Musil had been ranked anywhere...

#10 Prospect: David Musil

If we're playing favorites, David Musil is near the top of my list. He was so calm in pre-season that one could easily project him into the future as steady, reliable defender. Lots of PK, tough EV minutes and plenty of grit and toughness. Winter 2011: #10Summer 2011: #8Redline report: His father, Frank, was a longtime NHL defenseman and currently a highly respected scout....
