Secondary scorers showing up for Edmonton Oilers

Obviously, there are many components of success that are either regularly missing from the Edmonton Oilers’ collective game or only available in spurts. One item on the long list is balanced scoring, not merely relying on the speed and skill of the Ryan Nugent-Hopkins-Taylor Hall-Jordan Eberle trio to carry that payload. That means steadier production from the Sam Gagner-David...

Oilers allowing too many goals while on the power play

For the Edmonton Oilers, getting scored on during their power play has become almost as big an issue as scoring on it. With the short-handed goal they gave up to the Carolina Hurricanes in a 5-4 overtime win Tuesday, the Oilers have now conceded more goals on their power play than any other team in the league. The six goals are one more than the Winnipeg Jets have given up thisâ€...

Jeff Petry and Ladislav Smid must get better, not worse, for the Edmonton Oilers to make the playoffs

Ten Things the Oilers must do to make the playoffs Part 3 In Part 1 of this Cult of Hockey series we focused on how the Oilers have to find depth defenders and how the teams’ young stars must step up as leaders and refuse to lose. In Part 2 we looked at the need to get solid forechecking out of the fourth line and as solid goaltending from Devan Dubnyk as it got last season. Today...

UND Hockey: Dillon Simpson Sleeper Prospect for Edmonton Oilers

Here’s what the Edmonton Journal had to say about UND senior defenseman Dillon Simpson. Edmonton Oilers Prospects: #7 Dillon SimpsonJonathan Willis, Edmonton Journal – Dillon Simpson was a good enough player to contribute in college hockey’s toughest conference, the WCHA, at the age of 17.

Datsyuk undresses defender, scores

Jeff Petry might want to file sexual harassment charges because Pavel Datsyuk absolutely undressed him. At the 3:39 mark of OT Pavel Datsyuk took pass from Johan Franzen and really did what he does best, making the opposing defense look silly to eventually light the lamp giving the Wings a 3-2 win. After being down 2-0 it looked like the Wings were on their way to their 4th straight...

Jeff Petry scores on his own team against Detroit Red Wings

Late in the third period the Edmonton Oilers were up 2-1 when the Detroit Red Wings went on the powerplay.  The Red Wings had been struggling to get scoring chances all night, but after Niklas Kronwall fired a shot on net the rebound kicked right out to Oilers defenseman Jeff Petry.  Petry, like many defenseman before him, wanted desperately to clear the puck out of the zone but...

Richard Cloutier: Petry Sittin' Purty; Dubey is Scooby

On Thursday, Oilers GM Steve Tambellini locked up two key players when he re-signed goaltender Devan Dubnyk and defenseman Jeff Petry to two-year deals. Set Dubnyk's cap hit to $3.5mil per season, and Petry at $1.75mil per. Good deals? Not bad. I think it's an overpayment for Dubnyk, but at least the signing clears up any confusion that could exist as to what the plan...

Richard Cloutier: Somewhat Damaged

The Flames are an awful hockey team. So why do we keep losing to them? It helps when your defense bothers to show up. At least two of the goals against the Oilers on Saturday were caused by brutal plays by Jeff Petry in the defensive zone. As bad as Petry played, there is plenty of humble pie to go around. The Oilers D looked scrambled and uncertain for most of the game. Have...
