The end of the road for the 13/14 Oilers

All that stands between the Edmonton Oilers and golf season is a Saturday night tilt against the equally hapless Vancouver Canucks. It's actually a good thing this season is coming to an end now, as the Oilers have been out of the playoff race for at least 50 games now. It's been hard on the fans, and even harder on the players. It was a terrible season to watch hockey...

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...

Hall: Oilers have ‘let everyone, including ourselves, down’

On Tuesday, the Edmonton Oilers lost in regulation for the 41st time this season– and their leading scorer expressed frustration over what’s been another miserable campaign. “We’re all struggling with the fact we’re 29th [place, in the NHL] and not in the spot we want to be. We just have to stay as positive as we can,” Taylor Hall said, per the Edmonton Journal. “I...

Oilers probably haven’t hit rock bottom yet

It is eerie, perhaps maddening, how cool, calm and collected the Edmonton Oilers can be after a disgraceful performance such as the 8-1 pasting they absorbed Saturday night against the Calgary Flames. They certainly were like that after the loss to the Flames, reflective, apologetic, perplexed. But hardly enraged. To their credit, the players were all at their stalls when the media...

Oilers fan tosses jersey on ice during 8-1 loss, Ben Scrivens throws it back into crowd (GIF)

As an Edmonton Oilers fan, last night's 8-1 debacle against rival Calgary Flames. was without question the low point of the season.

Taylor Hall, Dallas Eakins try to defuse water-bottle throwing incident

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. And yes, for the second time this season, a disgusted fan threw an Oilers jersey on the ice sometime during the third period. However, another incident that garnered attention on such a night was a heated exchange at the...

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...

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 [...]

The Edmonton Oilers and Los Angeles Kings are working on making a deal. TSN’s Bob McKenzie and Pierre LeBrun report that the Oilers could send Sam Gagner to Los Angles for left winger Kyle Clifford. What’s notable in this potential deal is that neither player is a pending free agent. Gagner, 24, is in the first year of a three-year deal he signed last summer with an annual salary...

How Not To Rebuild

It is many people's conventional wisdom that a poor team's best chance to rebuild is to become as poor a team as possible and try to build through top draft picks.  This is the path the Edmonton Oilers have followed.  They have picked first overall in the NHL draft three years in a row netting them Taylor Hall, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Nail Yakupov.  They have picked up...
