Oilers’ Hall sounds upbeat thanks to health, familiarity

Offseasons have been difficult for Edmonton Oilers winger Taylor Hall beyond the disappointment of badly missing the playoffs. It seems like he’s had to deal with coaching change and/or rehab from a season-ending injury just about every time it gets hot outside. That’s different this time around, and while some of the quotes provided to the Edmonton Sun seem like familiar refrains...

Taylor Hall Healthy And Ready To Go

from Derek Van Diest of the Edmonton Sun, By skipping out on the World Championship, Hall was able to add a month to his workout regimen this off-season. “That was probably the main reason why I didn’t go to Worlds, I wanted to give myself a really good summer to train,” Hall said. “It seemed like every summer I either had surgery or World Championships or an ankle...

Taylor Hall And Ryan Nugent-Hopkins Puck Possession

The Edmonton Oilers were not a good team in 2013/14.  They had more excess defensive zone starts than any other team in the NHL.  As a result it is expected that many of their top players would not have good puck possession numbers.  When I ranked the worst 20 players by Corsi rating adjusted for team and zone starts, Edmonton did quite poorly.  Justin Schultz and Andrew Ference...

Taylor Hall Or Tyler Seguin?

from Ryan Dixon of Sportsnet, The Taylor versus Tyler drama at the 2010 draft was, really, driven more by alliteration than uncertainty. Taylor Hall may not have been a slam-dunk first-overall pick ahead of fast-rising Tyler Seguin, but by the time the Edmonton Oilers brass walked to the stage in Los Angeles, it would’ve been genuinely surprising to hear them call a name other...

Taylor Hall As A Left Wing All Star

The top scoring left winger in the 2013/14 NHL season did not get a single first place vote for the post season All Star Team.  Taylor Hall led all the left wingers in the league with 80 points.  Granted it was a close race.  Jamie Benn and Joe Pavelski had 79 points each and Patrick Sharp had 78.  Nevertheless, Hall was a distant fourth in the all star voting.  I argue that...

Oilers set to add another high pick to cadre of talent

Edmonton Oilers head amateur scout Stu MacGregor doesn't believe the 2014 NHL Draft is as deep as previous years, but is confident several prospects within this class will ultimately develop into solid NHL performers.

Edmonton’s Youth Will Dictate The Future

#483158943 / gettyimages.com The Edmonton Oilers have an ongoing streak that no other NHL team can claim ownership to. The Oilers have the longest active playoff drought in the NHL. Eight seasons have passed since the Oilers last playoff appearance, with their last appearance coming during the 2005-2006 season when they reached the Stanley Cup Final. After taking a major step back...

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...

Oilers kick assistant GM out of clown car

The horrifying Edmonton Oilers just get worse and worse. For fans of the team, this has got to be so frustrating. For a blogger who is a self-proclaimed anarchist and lives for sarcasm, I can't imagine blogging for any other team. This just keeps getting worse than worse.

Breaking News: Oilers Young Guns snub Team Canada

During the last year, Hockey Canada worked hard to recruit a team that would eventually win the Olympic gold medal. This is no thanks to Taylor Hall, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Jordan Eberle, who at no time during the process were even considered as potential roster players for Team Canada. Taylor Hall in particular took the news hard. While the Oilers were brutal in 2013/2014, Hall...

Hall on pace for 80 points

Not one Edmonton Oiler since Doug Weight has netted 80 points in a single season, and that was the 2000/2001 season a mere 13 years ago. Now, standing at 77 points in 73 games, with 2 games to go, point per game winger Taylor Hall just might hit 80 in this his 4th NHL season, with a bottom of the league team.

Taylor Hall having his best & worst season with the Edmonton Oilers

Having already reached career highs for assists, points and games played, and one away from tying his career high in goals, Taylor Hall is having the best year of his NHL career — right in the middle of the worst year of his NHL career. In an Edmonton Oilers season where any sort of individual success has to be diluted with equal parts disappointment and frustration, Hall has...

Frustrations boiled over for the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday. Easy to see why, really. The Oilers fell by a final score of 8-1 to the Calgary Flames on home ice.

Taylor Hall, Fancy Stat-ist

TSN’s Ryan Rishaug did an interview with Taylor Hall that TSN aired before the Oilers game in Minnesota. It was pretty interesting for a couple of reasons. First, it’s still kind of weird to see a hockey player dropping Corsi and Fenwick correctly in an interview. Hall made what I consider to be an entirely [...]
