Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (left) and Taylor Hall (right)Source: Dale MacMillan/Getty Images North America Tuesday was my first day writing up our NHL picks, and it went about as well as I could have hoped. I made five lineups and entered each of them into the big $2 GPP on DraftKings. I went small with my investment because even though I’ve played NHL DFS before, I’d always done so...

Every gaffe that the Oilers have made over their perpetual rebuild, every losing streak or player that...

Puck Dumps 12/17/14

What everyone is talking aboutThe Oilers are complete garbage, and since the GM couldn’t possibly be blamed for it, they are going to let Craig MacTavish try to fix it. Right now, the solution appears to be to try and trade Taylor Hall. Yeah, that’ll solve everything. Also, for some reason, Hall doesn’t want to leave Edmonton. Hmm.

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.

Stop. The Bruins Aren’t Going To Get Taylor Hall.

Can we talk about Taylor Hall for a minute? I want to talk about Taylor Hall for a minute. Yesterday Darren Dreger came out on TSN radio and had this to say about Taylor Hall and the Oilers (from Puck Daddy): “It’s not one player. It’s the collection of players that make up the sagging work ethic and lack of culture. But if you had to put a face on it, or a name to it, that...
