The Edmonton Oilers Would Like To Add Four Or Five Players

from Terry Jones of the Edmonto Sun, Between now and the July 1 beginning of free agent frenzy the second year general manager, like the rest of his brethren, can do more to determine the fate of his team than in the other 49 months of the year combined. And with the Oilers now possessing the longest out-of-the-playoffs streak of any NHL team at eight straight after finishing...

Oilers Lose Again

from Terry Jones of the Edmonton Sun, This team needs a psychiatrist. Instead of taking the glory-gang pictures off the walls of the Edmonton Oilers dressing room, first-year NHL coach Dallas Eakins needs to pad the walls. He needs a hypnotist more than a conditioning coach. Last night was as good an example as any. For openers against the Phoenix Coyotes, the Oilers...

Oilers Waiting For A Sensible Deal

from Terry Jones of the Edmonton Sun, The fans are in such a state with the massive disappointment of the Oilers dropping back to 29th place after 30th, 30th, 29th and 24th place finishes, it is much more important that MacTavish resists the trap which has caught so many general managers before him in similar situations (the New York Islanders being the best example). He...

The Oilers Scored

from Terry Jones of the Edmonton Sun, The Oilers, who had only two goals in the previous five consecutive games at home so they’d been outscored 23-2 when Yakupov pulled the trigger for his 20th career goal in his 67th career game. Oh, yes. Forgot to mention. The Oilers lost the game 3-1 to the Sharks who have now gone 10-1-1 in their last dozen games in Edmonton. It was...

Bryzgalov Talks

Terry Jones of the Edmonton Sun spoke with Ilya Bryzgalov... Bryzgalov said it’s been a time to be introspective. “You do more learning from the tough times you’ve been through. When times are difficult it forces you to think and do things you’ve never done. I learned a lot from these two years in Philly.” So what happened in Philadelphia? “I just can...

Dallas Eakins Feeling The Heat

from Terry Jones of the Edmonton Sun, Your name is Dallas Eakins and there are questions about how how a power-play unit could have gone from eighth last year to 24th, how penalty kill unit could have gone from ninth to 26th, how your five-on-five could have given up more goals than any other team in the league and if the so-called swarm defence is understood by any of your...

Oilers Fading From The Playoff Race

Oilers Now Part Of The Goon Game

from Terry Jones of the Edmonton Sun, To goon or not to goon? That was the question. The answer is Steve Smackintyre. The Smack is back! After striking out twice here before, Steve MacIntyre — who proved conclusively that he not only can’t play the game, but that he can’t skate well enough to get close enough to most guys to even body check them — is back to...

The Oilers Now Have Their Dressing Room

from Terry Jones of the Edmonton Sun, The Oilers dressing room is no longer a museum of the glory days of Stanley Cup champions and banner-raising teams. Gone are the pictures and plaques of the Cup winning teams, the names of all the players of all time and much more. One of the first things Eakins did after he was hired, it seems, was call Ghostbusters. The new head coach...

Lack Of Action In Edmonton

from Terry Jones of the Edmonton Sun, It was a big build-up for an extra large letdown. The hype and anticipation for new Edmonton Oilers GM Craig MacTavish to be bold and exceptionally active. And nuthin’. It was the complete opposite of the projected plan, the expressed and even trumpeted mission to move draft choices and assets to acquire missing links and support...

Time For A GM Change In Edmonton

from Terry Jones of the Edmonton Sun, Tentative Tambellini has to take the fall for the failure of the Edmonton Oilers to rise. Steve Tambellini can’t keep firing the coach. It’s his turn to take the bullet. Seven games remain for the Oilers as they mop up a seventh straight season out of the playoffs and one thing has become more than obvious. It’s been tracking...

The Oilers Are Done

from Terry Jones of the Edmonton Sun, They're dead men skating now. And they're skating with a fork in them. They're done. It's hard to come to any other conclusion after a game the entire hockey world viewed as loser-is-out when it comes to the Western Conference playoff picture. Sure, the Oilers won five fabulous games in a row leading into this...

2010, A Very Good Oilers Year

The Edmonton Oilers may have finished dead last in the spring of 2010, but they could finish first in that year's draft class.
