Oilers: Taylor Hall and reasonable expectations

Edmonton - Apr. 17, 2014: As good as Taylor Hall has been during his first four seasons in the National Hockey League, there are those who feel he still has a long way to go before becoming one of the top players in the game today. While the Edmonton Oilers star winger certainly has room to grow as a player, this notion of him being this irresponsible kid who refuses to conform his game is almost laughable. FULL STORY

Jets: Four more years of Paul Maurice...yes please

Edmonton - Apr. 16, 2014: Next season started today for the Winnipeg Jets as GM Kevin Cheveldayoff accomplished the #1 item on his to-do list, hire a coach. Of course this wasn't a lengthy search and interview process as the man he wanted was already in house. Today he got the news he wanted to hear, Paul Maurice (and more importantly his family) was on board. FULL STORY

Oilers: The one that got away

Edmonton - Apr. 16, 2014: When NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly opened up the final envelope of the 2014 Draft Lottery and pulled out the card of the Florida Panthers, all I could do was shake my head. Through 81 games the Edmonton Oilers sat in 29th spot in the overall standings, one point ahead of the Panthers but that changed after Game 82. Back in 2007, a similar situation cost the organization a chance at drafting Patrick Kane and it looks as though it will happen yet again in 2014. FULL STORY

Oilers: MacTavish keeps expectations low in year end presser

Edmonton - Apr. 15, 2014: No one should have been surprised with the approach Craig MacTavish decided to take to his year end press conference. After promising big changes and letting the entire hockey world know he wasn’t an overly patient man during his introduction as the Edmonton Oilers general manger, the fifty-five year old tried putting a positive spin on what was a disastrous 2013-14 campaign.

Edmonton Oilers: A Season to Forget

Edmonton - Apr. 15, 2014: It wasn’t supposed to go like this. 2013-14 was the year the Edmonton Oilers were going to play meaningful games deep into the season. While few had them slated to qualify for post-season play for the first time since 2006, almost everyone felt this team was good enough to compete for a spot. Unfortunately, that is not how things played out during Dallas Eakins rookie year behind an NHL bench. FULL STORY

Swing and a miss
Windsor - Apr. 14, 2014: Hockey fans are psyching up for what will hopefully be another action packed and entertaining post-season of NHL playoffs. Unfortunately, the subpar play of Canadian teams has resulted in a lack of Canadian representation this year, as the Montreal Canadiens are the only Canadian club competing in the playoffs. However this will not deter Canadians from tuning in to the best kind of hockey there is: playoff hockey.
Toronto pulls a rabbit out of their hat
Wilkes-Barre Scranton - Apr. 14, 2014: In a 3-2 contest, the Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins would fail to get the win for their fans on a night that celebrated the fans' support and dedication for the club. The Marlies late comeback in the third period would prove to be enough to provide them with the victory.
Oilers: The Ryan Smyth Love Affair
Edmonton - Apr. 13, 2014: In the grand scheme of things, last night’s 5-2 win over the visiting Vancouver Canuck was nothing more than another meaningless season ending victory for the Edmonton Oilers but it was one hell of a special night for Ryan Smyth and his legions of fans across Oil Country and will undoubtedly be remembered as one of the most touching moments in franchise history

Stoney Point - Apr. 13, 2014: It is that time of year again.

Oil Kings make it look easy, dismissing Wheat Kings in five
Edmonton - Apr. 12, 2014: In a span of 128 seconds, the Edmonton Oil Kings booked their ticket to their third straight WHL conference final. The Oil Kings scored three goals in that 2:08 span late in the first period, taking control of a back-and-forth game with the Brandon Wheat Kings en route to a 5-1 win Friday night to take their second round match-up 4-1.
