Theo Peckham is injured.
Regardless, I still think today's Mark Fistric deal gets done anyway if you're the Edmonton Oilers. Offering up a 3rd round draft pick for a competent 5/6 defenseman who's big, throws more than 200 hits per year, and blocks shots like a demon is a small price to pay to immediately upgrade the hockey team. The Oilers just became a much harder...
Today, the Oilers re-signed defenseman Theo Peckham to a one year deal, worth a little over a million bucks for the season. A good deal?
Actually, I don't mind it.
Do you remember Matt Greene when he was on the Oilers? By the time he left for LA, people were starting to see the potential brilliance in him. During the Stanley Cup Playoffs, Greene was an absolute beast.....
Edmonton Oilers defenseman Theo Peckham suffered a concussion during Sunday's game against the Columbus Blue Jackets.Peckham left the game shortly after taking a hit from Blue Jackets captain Rick Nash.The 24-year-old Peckham has appeared in 54 games this season, collecting one goal and two assists.
Strange day for the Edmonton Oilers.
Going into today's Trade Deadline, I believed the Oilers had a number of players they needed to make decisions on. I thought Nikolai Khabibulin should be moved, along with one of Theo Peckham or Cam Barker. None of these players were dealt. Why? Likely because no one was interested. I'd like to say I don't understand why, but I...

Theo Peckham and Jeff Petry were awful. Devan Dubnyk looked great for most of the game, but let a back-breaking terrible goal that sank his team. The Oilers D as a group couldn't get out of their own zone with the puck. Ales Hemsky played disinterested hockey. Shawn Horcoff had Horcoff Hands. The line full of kids got pushed around, because no matter how talented they are, they...
Heading onto the ice last night for a little Capsule action I tweeted that the Oilers' game was going to be a bloodbath. Four defencemen out, Theo Peckham on the second pair, four games lost on a row, each one worse than the last, nobody scoring, best team in the league in town, pissed off after coming off of a loss.Bloodbath, right?After hauling myself out of a loss where I...
