Edmonton - 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

Edmonton - Mar. 2, 2015: While it was bound to happen, it certainly did not make the trading of Jeff Petry any easier to stomach. To make matters worse, the return the Edmonton Oilers were able to pry out of the Montreal Canadiens for the pending unrestricted free agent was something which will not help this organization in any way shape or form over the next few years.

Edmonton - Mar. 2, 2015: The Montreal Canadiens acquired defenseman Jeff Petry from the Edmonton Oilers on Monday for a second- and a conditional fifth-round pick in the 2015 NHL Draft. Petry, 27, has four goals and 15 points in 59 games this season. A second-round pick (No. 45) by the Oilers in the 2006 NHL Draft, he has 17 goals and 74 points in 295 NHL games. FULL STORY

Edmonton - Mar. 1, 2015: It may have been closer than some were expecting but last night's 2-1 loss to the St. Louis Blues was essentially the perfect outcome for the Edmonton Oilers. Keep from getting embarrassed but continue to hold your spot in the Draft Lottery. It may not be overly sexy but it is exactly what this team needs to do over the final six weeks of the 2014-15 season. FULL STORY

Edmonton - Feb. 25, 2015: The Edmonton Oilers finally managed to beat Devan Dubnyk on Tuesday night, as a badly undermanned side edged the red-hot Minnesota Wild by a score of 2-1. In a season in which the Oilers goaltending has been a complete and utter disaster, it was the play of netminder Ben Scrivens that allowed them to walk away with two points in their back pocket, Unfortunately, it has taken five plus months for an Oilers goalie to deliver an elite level performance in 2014-15.

Edmonton - Feb. 22, 2015: With last night's 2-1 loss to the Anaheim Ducks, the Edmonton Oilers have now dropped a staggering 32 of 36 games against Western Conference opponents. While the team's play has improved under the guidance of Todd Nelson, if Craig MacTavish does not make some major changes to his roster prior to the start of the 2015-16 campaign, expecting much in the way of improvement when it comes to the win column would be rather unrealistic.

Edmonton - Feb. 21, 2015: While last night's 4-0 loss to Devan Dubnyk and the Minnesota Wild may have been difficult for some in this market to accept, the time has come for this fan base and local media to come to grips with what this Edmonton Oilers roster currently is. Losses like last night has nothing to do with the so-called lack of effort we are seeing out on the ice and and everything to do with the team on the other end of the rink. FULL STORY

Edmonton - 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

Edmonton - Feb. 19, 2015: Heading into last night's tilt with the Boston Bruins all anyone could talk about was whether or not Malcolm Subban would make his NHL debut against the Edmonton Oilers. While the kid did not end up getting the nod in goal for Claude Julien, it was the play of Ben Scrivens that ultimately proved to be the difference in what was 4-3 shootout win for Todd Nelson's crew. Funny what a difference a handful of timely saves can make. FULL STORY

Edmonton - Feb. 17, 2015: While the Edmonton Oilers fell in a shootout to the Winnipeg Jets on Monday night to close out their season-high six game road trip on a bit of a sour note, Nail Yakupov continued his recent resurgence with a two goal night. The young Russian looks to have finally righted the ship after struggling badly under the guidance of one Dallas Eakins during what was a season and half the former first overall pick would love to forget.

Edmonton - Feb. 10, 2015: For the second consecutive evening, the Edmonton Oilers gave an Eastern Conference opponent all they could handle but unfortunately for them, it was not enough to get past the New York Islanders, While the 3-2 loss was likely a tough pill for Todd Nelson's side to stomach, it was a game in which many an Oiler not only held their own but in some cases, they continue to elevate their play on a nightly basis.
