This Edmonton Oilers Rebuild Did Not Go So Well

from Jonathan Willis of The Cult of Hockey at the Edmonton Journal, It was a dark and ugly campaign for the Oilers.

Oilers extend Jeff Petry one year

RFA defenseman, Jeff Petry, was signed to an extended one year contract just now. Only one year, eh? I was hoping for at least two for him. He’s earned it.  With the rumours of trading him for a 2nd line centre swirled, this concerned me for several reasons: 1. Petry has barely played 230 NHL […]

Stronger, wiser Nurse ready to claim job on Oilers’ blue-line

Physically, Darnell Nurse has changed, adding almost 15 pounds since the Edmonton Oilers selected him seventh overall in the 2013 draft. Mentally? Mentally, he says he’s stronger after working through the disappointment of not making the NHL roster out of his first training camp — a setback that was later trumped by the fact that he didn’t make the final cut for Canada’s...
