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...

Oilers-Senators Preview

Six wins in 11 games might by definition be the mathematic brink of mediocrity, but in the context of the Edmonton Oilers, it signifies drastic gains. The Oilers will try to further that relative success Saturday in Ottawa as the Senators attempt to end some recent home struggles. Edmonton (16-31-9) earned a 4-3 overtime win over Montreal on Thursday to even its record through the...

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...

Struggling Devils look to rebound in February

The New Jersey Devils have been playing some of the worst hockey in recent memory over this season. On four different occasions, the Devils have lost at least four games in a row. Miraculously, the team isn’t in last place thanks in part to a slight surge since the firing of head coach Peter DeBoer and the non-traditional hiring of three head coaches. They now look at a relatively...

Sabres-Oilers Preview

The Buffalo Sabres and Edmonton Oilers are the two worst teams in the NHL, and the Sabres are certainly deserving of that distinction as they're mired in the longest losing streak in franchise history. They'll try to prevent it from reaching 13 on Thursday night when they go for a fifth straight win in Edmonton. Buffalo (14-31-3) finished last in the league in 2013-14, and it's in...

Chris LaFrance-USA TODAY Sports The Edmonton Oilers can’t seem to stay out of the spotlight this year. That’s not a good thing, either, as almost everything they do earns the ire of the fan base and the chuckles of anyone outside of Alberta. Saying that things are a mess this season would be putting it lightly. They’re dead last in the NHL in points yet again, well on...
