Edmonton Oilers: Few Bright Spots in a Sea of Darkness

#457284644 / gettyimages.com The Edmonton Oilers find themselves in turmoil once again and the 2014-15 season is only four games old.

Defensive breakdowns from players who should be far beyond these...

Add Jeff Petry to the list of defensemen the Rangers should be interested in

For some reason, the Edmonton Oilers don’t like right-handed defenseman Jeff Petry. He was a healthy scratch against the LA Kings (of all the teams) and has seen ice-time commensurate with a bottom pair player. Elliotte Friedman thinks the Oilers brass should just get it over with and move Petry, who is an unrestricted free continue reading...

Friedman’s Red Wings-related trade rumors are swell and all, but everything comes down to cap space

Of Red Wings-related note from Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman's "30 Thoughts": 2. If the Oilers think Jeff Petry is not good enough to dress in Los Angeles, it is time. He’s unrestricted at the end of the year. He’s not going to stay; there is no point in keeping him. Get what you can, end the distraction and move on. Detroit is the obvious candidate, but...

Oilers opt to sit veteran defenceman Jeff Petry to give Darnell Nurse his first NHL start

When a team gives up 10 goals in its first two games, the decision about whether to make a change on defence is pretty easy. Yes. But deciding which of his six starters to sit Tuesday in Los Angeles was the more difficult end of the equation for head coach Dallas Eakins. The optics wouldn’t be good if he sat free agent acquisitions Mark Fayne or Nikita Nikitin, and scratching...

Hockey Thoughts On A Wednesday Morning

from Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet, - If the Oilers think Jeff Petry is not good enough to dress in Los Angeles, it is time. He’s unrestricted at the end of the year. He’s not going to stay; there is no point in keeping him. Get what you can, end the distraction and move on. Detroit is the obvious candidate, but I can see Anaheim wanting a shot at him, too.

Kings score early and often against hapless Edmonton

The Kings didn’t actually score on every shift of Tuesday’s game against the Edmonton Oilers at Staples Center. It only seemed like it. The Kings didn’t create a scoring on every dash down the ice against the hopelessly overmatched Oilers. It only appeared to be the case. There will be nights when the puck doesn’t settle into the back of the net as easily or as often as...

Oilers Jeff Petry to Red Wings

Well, with the Oilers’ Jeff Petry sitting out tonight’s game versus the L.A. Kings for only reasons that elephants can tell you, and the fact he only got a one year deal, when the rest of us wanted at least two years, if not three, the trade rumours are abound that he’ll be dealt somewhere […]

Jeff Petry A Healthy Scratch vs. Kings

Jeff Petry gets the healthy scratch from Dallas Eakings Petry's ice time shows that Eakins wasn't thrilled with the defenseman for some reason, though by most reviews he's been the Oilers best defender thus far.

Trading Jeff Petry

Is it possible for the Oilers to manufacture a trade involving Jeff Petry that they can win? Alright...a few qualifiers before I start this article: I HATE writing "Armchair GM" stuff.

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...

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...

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.

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...
