Hope For Edmonton

from David Staples of The Cult of Hockey, Hope #2: That Mark Arcobello and Anton Lander pick up where they left off in the AHL. Both Arcobello and Lander are seasoned AHLers now, and both have aced almost every test that league has thrown at them.

In defense of Anton Lander

Today, the Edmonton Oilers announced that they have agreed to terms with Anton Lander on a one-year contract extension. The 23-year-old centerman spent the 2013-14 season shuttling between a bottom-line role at the NHL level and heading up a scoring line for the Oklahoma City Barons of the AHL.  Another case of a player that's too good for the farm system, but struggles to...

With Jesse Joensuu out, Edmonton Oilers give Anton Lander longer look-see

With Jesse Joensuu walking out of Rexall Place in a medical boot on Monday, odds are good Anton Lander will be staying for a while.
