The Oilers Might Be Terrible, But Oscar Klefbom Is Providing A Ray Of Hope

It might be hard to believe but despite their struggles as a team there is still some fantasy gold yet left to find in the nearly depleted mines of the Edmonton Oilers. Though skaters like Taylor Hall, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and to a lesser extent, Jordan Eberle have spectacularly failed fantasy owners this season, as we go headlong into the stretch run for fantasy hockey a 21-year...

Taylor Hall injured, Oilers tank effort is on

Perry Nelson-USA TODAY Sports Go figure, the day after I write that the Edmonton Oilers don’t deserve Connor McDavid, they may have been put in the best possible position to actually land him. They were already bad as it was, but now they’ll be without their best player: Taylor Hall will miss the next 4-6 weeks, according to TSN’s Bob McKenzie. No official word from EDM...

The Edmonton Oilers don’t deserve to draft Connor McDavid

With as much talk as there has been about all the contenders in the NHL and just who might skate away with the 2015 Stanley Cup, there has been just as much conversation on the other side of the spectrum. Being at the bottom of the standings is the thing to do this season, with the 2015 NHL Draft being the one where holding a top pick is a coup. That’s what happens when there...
