For years we have run online drafts here at the Nation Network. For many players, this is a time where they load up on players from teams they think will go deep and create teams that will stand a high likelihood of winning them cash or prizes.
Our next Woman of Oilersnation’s Twitter bio asks “Would you believe they used to pay me to write about hockey”? And now hockey sites are writing about her and her success as an Edmonton business owner.
The Edmonton Oilers struck first on Saturday afternoon, taking a 1-0 lead on the Vancouver Canucks thanks to an Adam Larsson goal. The Oilers, however, didn’t beat Thatcher Demko again and dropped a 4-1 decision to the Canucks.
With the Scotiabank North Division’s playoff matchups finally set in stone, we can take a look at the Round 1 opponent faced by the Edmonton Oilers. The Winnipeg Jets will face the Oilers up to seven times over the coming weeks, and the two teams have no shortage of playoff history.
The Oilers dropped their final game of the season by a score of 4-1 to the Canucks. The result here, of course, doesn’t matter at all. The Oilers clinched a playoff spot quite some time ago, they’re locked into second place in the Canadian Division, and Connor McDavid scored his 100th point of the season last weekend.

Don’t expect to see much change from Edmonton Oilers’ head coach Dave Tippett when it comes to his lineups during the postseason. As the team heads into the 2020-21 NHL Playoffs on a roll, they are one of the few teams who have a number of players not playing, but could be because they’re healthy.
Tonight’s game marks the final one of the 2020-21 NHL season for the Edmonton Oilers as they prepare to begin Operation 16W 2021. I think the Oilers will put out a pretty standard roster this evening with changes coming in at the bottom.
This afternoon, the Edmonton Oilers will finally conclude their 2020-21 regular season slate as they host the Vancouver Canucks at Rogers Place. After that, it’s a trip to the 2021 Stanley Cup Playoffs and a date with the Winnipeg Jets starting Wednesday night in Edmonton.
According to post by Allan Mitchell of The Athletic, the Edmonton Oilers may choose to let Tyson Barrie walk away, get Adam Larsson signed to a reasonable deal and run with Ethan Bear and Evan Bouchard to round out the right side, all for around $7 million next season.
