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...

Report: Taylor Hall to miss rest of season

It’s no secret, the entire Hockey world knows the Edmonton Oilers are in a dismal state. Once again, this franchise is at the bottom of the league and the only thing they may get lucky about is winning the lottery and picking first overall…again.. at the NHL draft. The chances of that just increased significantly with the news that Taylor Hall might miss at least 6 weeks, and...

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...

Leon Draisaitl to be sent back to juniors

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...

This Oilers trade proposal from Damien Cox is ridiculous

Taylor Hall is (inexplicably) on the trade block right now as the Edmonton Oilers prepare to blow their franchise up everywhere but where they should, which is the front office. Of course, when hockey fans hear that one of the game’s best forwards might be trade bait, they salivate and throw around proposals that they hope their teams will pull off for a little more scoring punch...

Coping without the Sabres tank job by @LukeWachob

The Sabres are 9 points ahead of the last-place Edmonton Oilers. They are 4 points behind the Boston Bruins. We might as well say it now: The Tank is dead. Long live The Tank. I’ve been a vocal advocate of the Sabres’ apparently-deliberate strategy of tanking to get top draft picks in 2014 and 2015. It’s a simple philosophy: if you’re going to blow up and rebuild, do it...

NHL Trade Speculation: Oilers’ Taylor Hall Enters Rumor Mill

The No. 2 pick in the 2010 NHL draft, Tyler Seguin, already has been traded by the team that selected him. Could the top pick from that draft be on the move, too?

Could Taylor Hall Be On The Trade Block?

Things just can’t stop getting worse for the Edmonton Oilers.

Oilers’ Taylor Hall Does Not Need Two Skates To Play Hockey

Well here’s something you don’t see every day. Apparently Taylor Hall didn’t have time to put his skate back on in the locker room after getting it sharpened before the end of the intermission so he went on the ice without one of his skates and tied it on the bench.

Oilers desperate to make trade

As a hockey fan who watches every Edmonton Oilers game I know there are many problem areas with this team. No defense. No goaltending. No Center depth. Knowing all of this, I would say multiple trades are a necessity to get this team where we all expected it to be. Nobody is untouchable outside of maybe Taylor Hall. Some of the rumored deals look decent but they would just be a...

Against the St. Louis Blues? Probably not. Nugent-Hopkins and Eberle are slumping. Taylor Hall looks like he may be playing through an injury of some sort. Oh, and the team's on an eight-game losing skid and their defensive core is currently a carousel of healthy scratches and demotions.
