Mar. 3, 2015: With the potential to be equipped with a new face of the franchise, a new capable head coach, a new management team, and a new home, comes the prospect of a new and rejuvenated fanbase. Opportunity is knocking for the Oilers in a way that teams rarely receive, and with the state of the franchise where it is today, Daryl Katz can’t afford to answer the door. FULL STORY

Devan Dubnyk Returns:

Feb. 20, 2015: No matter what happens in his return to Rexall, when Dubnyk exits the ice that he once called home, amidst cheers or boos (they all sound the same) he will probably still be able to look up to the pressbox and see the egg dripping off of Craig MacTavish’s face. Meanwhile the fans throughout Oil Country will be wondering if it was the wrong move to give up on the man who they so fondly remember by the giraffe on his mask. FULL STORY

Oilers Trade Speculation: Could Jeff Petry End Up In Toronto? Carolina? Both?

Oct. 14, 2014: In the offseason, all the way to last deadline, trade talks involving Petry were rampant, but never substantial. For the first time, the substance behind the rumours seems to be filling the cauldron, and maybe following tonight’s game against the Kings, an official announcement will be made. FULL STORY

Oilers Fans Doing All They Can To Be Dark Mark Of The League

Oct. 10, 2014: Those guys fought in some of the most heated battles, showering that logo on their jersey with blood, sweat, and tears, and many will have their names forever enshrined in the rafters alongside the crest of the Oilers. On a night in remembrance of that, the first night of the season, they had to witness straight disrespect to that logo, to THEIR logo. FULL STORY

Oilers look to extend preseason to Thursday night opener

Oct. 7, 2014: The Oilers would be smart to give the potential future matchups and line combinations another look, especially when other teams starting Thursday night, will be dressing the team that has the best chance to win. Looking at the Oilers season opener against the Calgary Flames, the projected lines tell me that Edmonton may not be employing the same strategy. FULL STORY

Oilers and Justin Schultz Agree To 1 Year Deal

Aug. 29, 2014: In my mind, the deal had to get done in order for the Oilers to enter into camps and the pre-season with full knowledge of their arsenal, but a large part of me does wonder why such a long hold-up. FULL STORY

Thank You, Sam Gagner: The Oilers Were Lucky To Have You

Jun. 29, 2014: Being a young guy with not a lot of NHL experience, Gagner welcomed in a plethora of young Oilers into the fold. From first overall Taylor Hall, to Theo Peckham, Jeff Petry, and even some signed UFA vets, Gagner filled the roll of team ambassador very well. Learning from Shawn Horcoff, he demonstrated the comradery and teamwork to maintain the positive attitude in a losing and overall negative circumstance. FULL STORY

Sabres say Auf Wiedersehen...Oilers should be saying Hallo

Jun. 29, 2014: This appears to be the type of no-brainer that the Oilers have been waiting for since the first tee time in May. MacTavish has been preaching the need to add a top-pairing defenseman since the middle of last season, and it would now appear he has a chance to do so. FULL STORY

3 BOLD Targets The Oilers could Acquire By Trading Out Of The First Round

Jun. 6, 2014: Staal has 2 years left on his contract, and looking at his production, there is a possibility that he will not be re-signed, if it continues to drop. The Hurricanes need to find success, they need some sort of help on defence, and they need more goal-scoring, even with a guy like Staal in the lineup. FULL STORY
