Edmonton - Oct. 22, 2014:
With both the Edmonton Oilers and Philadelphia Flyers struggling to find their way, it should surprise no one to hear players from both teams making their rounds in the NHL trade rumour mill. While the chances of a Sean Couturier or Jordan Eberle being moved appear to be highly unlikely, the same can not be said for the likes of David Perron, Jeff Petry or Brayden and Luke Schenn.

Edmonton - Oct. 21, 2014: Following what was yet another solid performance on Monday evening against Steven Stamkos and the Tampa Bay Lightning, one has to wonder what Edmonton Oilers forward Taylor Hall has to do in order to have the masses out east start giving him credit for being among the very best players in the game. God knows if he was a member of the Toronto Maple Leafs, that recognition would have come a long time ago. FULL STORY

Edmonton - Oct. 21, 2014: On the strength of a two point effort from Taylor Hall and a late third period winner off the stick of Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, the Edmonton Oilers finally managed to put an end to their five game losing skid to start the 2014-15 season, edging Steven Stamkos and the Tampa Bay Lightning by a score of 3-2 over at Rexall Place on Monday night.

Windsor - Oct. 18, 2014: During Friday night’s Leafs/Wings broadcast it was pointed out that Lefs GM Dave Nonis was in Edmonton, leading to speculation that there may be some trade winds blowing. Could there be a play that involves James Reimer, Nail Yakupov and Martin Brodeur? FULL STORY

Edmonton - Oct. 18, 2014: While the Edmonton Oilers may have played better in falling 2-0 to the Vancouver Canucks on Friday evening at Rexall Place, this team's inability to score goals continues to plague them on a nightly basis. Since Dallas Eakins has taken over the club, they have scored two goals or fewer in fifty-one of eighty-seven games and won exactly three of those games. With that being the case, one would think, the time to address the issue would be the here and now. FULL STORY

Edmonton - Oct. 17, 2014: With their season hanging in the balance, the Edmonton Oilers will kick-off a seven game homestand against the Vancouver Canucks on Friday night at Rexall Place. If by some chance, Dallas Eakins' squad cannot come out of this stretch will at minimum a .500 record, they can basically kiss this season good-bye and start preparing for another lottery pick at the 2015 NHL Entry Draft.

Edmonton - Oct. 16, 2014: With the Edmonton Oilers getting off to their usual slow start, one can’t help but wonder when general manager Craig MacTavish will do the right thing and get both Leon Draisaitl and Darnell Nurse out of town. While both players may be better than some of the options that Dallas Eakins currently has at his disposal, by no means should that dictate whether or not either of the two stay in Edmonton for the entire 2014-15 campaign.

Edmonton - Oct. 16, 2014: Despite a three point night from Taylor Hall, the Edmonton Oilers still found a way to lose their fourth consecutive game to start the year, dropping a 7-4 decision to the Arizona Coyotes on Wednesday night. Unfortunately, the manner in which Dallas Eakins' squad are losing hockey games is all too familiar to fans....poor defensive zone play and some dreadful netminding. FULL STORY

Edmonton - Oct. 15, 2014: The fact the Edmonton Oilers were blown out 6-1 by the Los Angeles Kings on Wednesday night should have surprised absolutely no one but the fact Dallas Eakins decided to sit his best defenceman in Jeff Petry for no apparent reason was frankly mind-boggling. As another season appears to be quickly spiralling out of control, one has to wonder when Craig MacTavish and his head coach will have to answer for how things have played out. FULL STORY

Edmonton - 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

Edmonton - Oct. 12, 2014: To steal a quote from New York Yankees legend Yogi Berra, the Edmonton Oilers 5-4 shootout loss to the Vancouver Canucks sure felt like "deja vu all over again". Despite jumping out to an early lead, Dallas Eakins' crew still found a way to blow three different two goal advantages and were frankly lucky to even get this one into overtime. While on paper this group may be improved, clearly closing out hockey games continues to be major problem. FULL STORY

Edmonton - 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

Edmonton - Oct. 9, 2014: For the second consecutive year, the Edmonton Oilers delivered a dominating performance during their season opener and for the second consecutive year they ended up on the wrong side of the scoresheet courtesy of their netminder’s inability to make that timely stop all teams need. Mason Raymond was the star of the show but Ben Scrivens allowed three goals on the first fifteen shots he faced and that proved to be the difference in what was 5-2 loss for the team wearing Orange and Blue.
