McDavid skates with Oilers teammate Taylor Hall for 1st time

TORONTO (AP) Connor McDavid has finally started playing with his Edmonton Oilers teammates - well, at least two of them. The No. 1 overall pick in the 2015 draft joined Oilers teammates Taylor Hall and Darnell Nurse on Monday at a practice for a preseason mini-tournament in midtown Toronto. It was the first time future linemates Hall and McDavid skated together, and the young center...

Can Darnell Nurse realistically make the Oilers this season?

Every single Edmonton Oilers fan is understandably ranting and raving about their generational-talented draft pick Connor McDavid. But there is one other first round draft pick in their possession they should be awfully excited for in defenseman Darnell Nurse.Nurse, drafted 7th overall in the 2013 draft, has all of the tools to be a standout NHL defenseman. He's got tremendous size...

Are the Oilers really this bad??

What a mess last night   Are the Oilers really this bad? Do you think I can get Bill Daly to autograph the display picture for this article so that I can frame it and put it up on my wall of shame? Has the Katz era been a complete disaster? Is there any team that is worse than the Oilers have been in all of professional sports for the last 8 years going on 9? Is the good 'ol boys...

Oilers Criticized For Size And Age

Criticized for their size and for playing like a junior team, the Edmonton Oilers are no strangers to the pressure of having to prove themselves within the league. Taylor Hall of the Oilers spoke out against the criticism to the Edmonton Journal last week. “We’re not going to bully teams out of their arena, but what we can do and what we can grow into is a possession team.

Edmonton Oiler’s Prospects Appear Promising

Fans of the Edmonton Oiler’s have had a rough past couple of years. Despite having the 1st overall pick in the NHL Entry Draft for three consecutive seasons, the team has failed to finish higher than fifth place for all but one of their last five seasons. It’s hard to say what isn’t clicking with the team, whether it is the management, the coaching, on-ice leadership, the...

Shakeup Coming in "Oil Country?"

To see the Edmonton Oilers once again electing in the Top 10 of this year's 2014 NHL Entry Draft is nothing new. For Oiler fans, this has become a 'rite of passage' every June. It is not one that Oiler fans are happy with or will they be content for much longer. Heck, even other team's fans are sick of the Oilers taking all the high draft picks. That is what makes this all so interesting...

First overall frenzy

On May 3, the Toronto Sun reported that Florida Panthers general manager Dale Tallon is willing to consider a trade involving the first overall selection at the 2014 NHL entry draft. Of course, Edmonton bloggers, reporters and fans alike (including others on this site) were abuzz - perhaps because they feel a strong sense of entitlement to be the first team called on draft day. Edmonton...

Ales in Wonderland

My parents owned a dog named Max. I loved him so much, I considered him my dog, too. Hell, when I started trolling hockey blogs on the Internet beginning in 2007, my online name - Maxbone - was in honor of him (and was not some sort of perverted reference as some of you suggested). Maxbone...remember the show Wishbone...Well, Max was smart like that, so I called him Maxbone. Why...

Could the Oilers get the Panthers pick?

A quick blog for today, as I have a triple birthday party to get to. Rumor has it that the Florida Panthers are actively shopping the first overall pick for this year's NHL Entry Draft, to be held on June 27 and 28. The reason they are shopping it? This years draft is a non-superstar year. The top four ranked prospects - Defenseman Aaron Ekblad, and centers Sam Bennett, Sam Reinhart...

The Vernon Myles Oilers Blog

Ever since I launched Puckrant.com, I've been paying close attention to the Edmonton Oilers Fan Page on Twitter. There's plenty of interesting conversation that goes on there. Today, reader Vernon Myles asked an interesting question: If you're the Oilers, would you give up the third overall pick and Nail Yakupov to Florida to pick first overall? Or do you keep the third pick and...

Tear Jerker

The Oilers had a disastrous season and fans have been unbelievably upset and disgusted with the organization for months. However, those feelings melted away in Game 82 of the season, when Ryan Smyth played his final game in the NHL. For Oilers fans, it was a three-hour long crying session. It wasn't tears of sadness. They were tears of appreciation. Smyth's appeal isn't that...
