Oilers optimistic Justin Schultz deal will get done before training camp

With Edmonton Oilers’ training camp only 25 days away, there is still one piece of unfinished business — getting Justin Schultz signed. There’s a possibility the defenceman may sign only a one-year deal if both parties can’t agree on the numbers for a two-year bridge contract. Fellow blue-liner Jeff Petry signed for only one year at $3.075 million in early July, but he’s...

Michigan State Pro Camp Opened Today

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News, As probably could be expected Monday, there was a lot of huffing and puffing, straining for the water bottle, and getting a lot of kinks out as many players began to ratchet their conditioning, with NHL training camps beginning in about a month. “This is kind of the first organized skate for a lot of guys,” said forward Justin Abdelkader...

Cody Franson of the Leafs is on the block. Should the Oilers be interested?

 Franson, 26, is 6-feet, 5-inches and 213 pounds. He shoots right and almost always plays the right side, a position where the Oilers already have Jeff Petry, Justin Schultz and Mark Fayne. Franson should be heading into the peak years of his NHL career. His coach trusted him with the 4th amount of even strength icetime for d-men on the Leafs, but he got the second most amount...

Petry’s $3.075-million deal will set him up for unrestricted free agency after the 2014-15 season. “It was something that both sides had gone back and forth about, discussing all the options from terms to dollars,” the 26-year-old defenceman said...

Red Wings morning news: more trade talk, cooking with campers and ‘Little Homer’

Yesterday, Tyler Myers trade talk dominated Red Wings fans' discussions. I'm guessing that most of you will be more interested in MLive's Ansar Khan's "analysis" reaction to the Free Press's Helene St. James' Myers push than you will be interested in this morning's prospect news--with today's summer development camp ending in a scrimmage...

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 […]

Just another day in Oilers paradise

Tuesday started hilariously enough. After the Oilers went from a season where they had 45pts in 48 games in 2012/2013, they went to 67pts in 82 games in 2013/2014. Yet according to Oilers GM Craig MacTavish, the coaching is better, the team is in the right spot, that no major roster shake-ups are needed this summer. Is there two different Oilers teams and I just keep happening...

Neutral Zone Breakdown: Open Door Policy

Tracking zone entries has been all the rage in the hockey analytics community this year and the main thing we look at is how often a team/player carries the puck into the offensive zone as opposed to dumping it in. That is generally how we judge which players are "winning the battle" in the neutral zone and creating the most offense off of zone entries. As important as...

Burish leaves game with gruesome injury

Sharks forward Adam Burish suffered an apparent left hand injury when he blocked a shot in during a game in Edmonton on Tuesday. It happened with 5:58 to go in the second period, when defenseman Jeff Petry’s blast from high in the zone struck the forward. Burish was in obvious pain, and skated immediately off of the ice at Rexall Place and did not return.

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...

Edmonton Oilers’ Matt Hedricks scores winner in clash of NHL's last-place teams

It’s safe to say the game lived up to its billing. The two worst teams in the NHL squared off Monday with the Edmonton Oilers pulling out a 3-2 win over the Buffalo Sabres. Matt Hendricks scored a short-handed goal early in the third period, which proved to be the difference in an otherwise uninspiring contest. Jeff Petry and Justin Schultz also scored for the Oilers, who have...

Still No Turnaround In Edmonton

from David Staples of The Cult of Hockey, ... The Oilers arena is still sold out, but I can’t recall a time since the mid-1990s when there’s been so little interest in the Oilers in mid-season. The compact between the fans on one side and Katz and his management group, headed up by Kevin Lowe, on the other has fallen apart. The deal was that the fans would endure a...

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 this...
