Central Division Update:7/29-8/5

The hockey doldrums are well underway, and this month is off to an extremely boring start. There was even less news than usual the past week. The Blackhawks had some minor news by officially signing Theo Peckham to a one-year deal worth $575K. The depth defenseman should spend most of his time in the AHL this upcoming season. The Wild re-signed first-round bust...

"Swagger" leads Preds to 6-0 victory over Oilers

(Photo by: Frederick Breedon/Getty Images) The thought on everyone’s mind entering the game Friday night was, “What is going to happen tonight?” With the new additions and lineup shake-up, it was anyone’s guess. The Nashville Predators snapped a three game losing streak Friday night by defeating the Edmonton Oilers, 6-0. During their losing streak, the Predators...

One More Defenceman Isn’t a Solution

The summer to do list of the Edmonton Oilers must look a little something like this: 1. Improve defence 2. ??? 3. Playoffs Through the 2011-12 season the Oilers faced a number of challenges, most of those stemmed from a weak defensive core. Especially with Ryan Whitney lost somewhat long term to a nagging ankle injury, and then a knee injury and then an ankle injury again, the...

The Vacant Quiet Room

from Mark Spector of Sportsnet, The media immediately coined the term, “The Quiet Room.” NHL officials proudly announced that the new protocol would be in place “starting tonight.” That was on Wednesday, March 16, 2011. Today, more than a year later, the NHL’s innovative concussion protocol is all just a fuzzy memory. And isn’t that ironic? “Quiet Room?,” Edmonton...

Oiler trade candidates

 The Edmonton Oilers should have a few pieces in play today as GM Steve Tambellini continues to improve his club for future seasons. Sportsnet's Gene Principe suggests goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin, defensemen Cam Barker and Theo Peckham are considered commodities. Forward Ryan Jones could also be available. TSN's Ryan Rishaug reports it's unlikely the Oilers will...

Rumors From Ottawa

from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun, • A guy on the Leafs’ radar could be San Jose W Ryane Clowe. He has a cap hit of $3.625 million through next season, but the word is he might be someone the Sharks are willing to part with before the deadline. Before anybody in San Jose picks up the phone to get GM Doug Wilson’s denial he’ll move Clowe, the belief is it would take more...

The Lesson of Corey Potter

The Edmonton Oilers have some depth issues on defense. That isn't news, hell the summer of 2006 was a long time ago. I'm wondering about so many young defenders on the current 6. Smid-Gilbert is a veteran duo, and after that it's a lot of inexperience (Peckham, Petry and Teubert) and minor league experience. I'm wondering if it might be an idea to grab another AHL...

Damn Lies

Kids lie. They all do. If you think your kids don't lie you are either lying to yourself or you are in for a fun ride once they become teenagers. Plus you are dumb.I was a born liar. Still am. Pathological almost. And the kids take after me. Although it is pretty funny listening to my wife sputter 'why do they lie?!' while glaring at me and then later that night over...

LOL As The Kids Say

Heading onto the ice last night for a little Capsule action I tweeted that the Oilers' game was going to be a bloodbath. Four defencemen out, Theo Peckham on the second pair, four games lost on a row, each one worse than the last, nobody scoring, best team in the league in town, pissed off after coming off of a loss.Bloodbath, right?After hauling myself out of a loss where I...

Nothing Rhymes

The list of Oilers forwards stuck offensively is real and it's spectacular: Taylor Hall hasn't scored in November, Magnus Paajarvi is lost and the Edmonton Oilers are a putrid offensive team. Their 41 goals is 9 off the league average (source: hockey-reference) and the early magic of the GA is lost too (although their 43 GA is still miles better than the league average)....
