Edmonton - Apr. 25, 2015:
While it did not come as a complete surprise, yesterday's appointment of Peter Chiarelli as the Edmonton Oilers new President of Hockey Operations and General Manger, it still managed to send shock waves throughout Oilers Nation. With Connor McDavid already firmly in this organization's back pocket, Bob Nicholson wasted little time in changing his management team and Craig MacTavish has no one but himself to blame for no longer being in the position he has held for the last two years.

Edmonton - Apr. 20, 2015: While the vast majority of hockey fans decided to lose their collective minds over news of the Edmonton Oilers winning what has essentially become the Connor McDavid Sweepstakes during Saturday's Draft Lottery, this notion that he is headed to some sort of wasteland for No. 1 picks is downright idiotic. While the frustration of seeing him go to the Oilers is understandable, people need to give their heads a shake. FULL STORY

Edmonton - Apr. 12, 2015: While it was the perfect way for the Edmonton Oilers to end what has frankly been the most disappointing season in frachise history, last night's 6-5 overtime loss to the playoff bound Vancouver Canucks was still difficult to stomach. Thankfully it also marked the last time Oiler fans will have to deal with such a feeling for the next six months. FULL STORY

Edmonton - Apr. 10, 2015: While the Edmonton Oilers may have dropped a 3-1 decision to the San Jose Sharks in what was their final home game of the 2014-15 season, it was an evening rookie Laurent Brossoit won't soon forget. The former Edmonton Oil Kings netminder was simply fantastic in his NHL debut and at the very least, handed Oilers fans a memory they won't soon forget. FULL STORY

Edmonton - Apr. 5, 2015: While an injury to Ryan Nugent-Hopkins left the Edmonton Oilers scrambling for a centre prior to their tilt with the Calgary Flames, one that ultimately produced a 4-0 loss, the fact Todd Nelson decided to use Taylor Hall as his first line centre was rather perplexing. It may have been the easy move to make but it was also the wrong one. Something tells me this was not all on the head coach, as this organization seems unwilling to give up on the notion of using Hall at centre. FULL STORY

Edmonton - Apr. 3, 2015: Last night’s 8-2 thrashing handed the Edmonton Oilers what is essentially perfect bookends to what truly has been a season to forget. While game No. 78 on the schedule was a drubbing to remember, it was also the perfect complement to the 6-1 thrashing Edmonton received back on October 14th, against the very same Los Angeles Kings. It was beating no one in this organization should forget any time soon but something tells me it may be dismissed as nothing more than “one of those nights”. FULL STORY

Edmonton - Apr. 2, 2015: While playing out the string is something the Edmonton Oilers have specialized in for far too long, the conclusion of their 2014-15 campaign simply cannot come soon enough. After watching this group fall to the Anaheim Ducks by a score of 5-1 on Wednesday night at the Honda Center, we can finally see that flicker of light at the end of tunnel. FULL STORY

Edmonton - Mar. 31, 2015: So here we are. Following last night’s 4-1 win over the Colorado Avalanche, the Edmonton Oilers find themselves with six games left on their schedule in what has truly been a wasted year for this once storied franchise. Yet with the chance of improving the possibility of being given the right to draft Connor McDavid at this summer's NHL Entry Draft staring them in the face, the Oilers have inexplicably gone 5-1-2 in their last eight games.

Edmonton - Mar. 27, 2015: While Edmonton Oilers defenceman Martin Marincin was lucky enough to score the first goal of his NHL career on Wednesday night against the Colorado Avalanche, there is no guarantee the towering Slovak will be in Orange and Blue come next season. FULL STORY

Edmonton - Mar. 24, 2015: While losing a game on your home-ice by three goals might suggest a team was badly outplayed, the Edmonton Oilers actually managed to hold their own against the Winnipeg Jets on Monday night over at Rexall Place. Unfortunately for the Oilers, it was the play of their starting goaltender and special teams that ultimately turned this one into an easy win for the visiting Jets. FULL STORY

Edmonton - Mar. 22, 2015: While Ray Emery may have played a starring role in the Edmonton Oilers being able to pull out what was a thrilling 5-4 OT victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday night in Taylor Hall's return to the lineup, it is the play of Ryan Nugent-Hopkins that continues to allow Todd Nelson the ability to have a group that will at least be able to compete on a nightly basis against teams that are, more often than not, superior to the Oilers.

Edmonton - Mar. 19, 2015: While the Edmonton Oilers were by far and away the superior team over at Rexall Place on Wednesday night, it ultimately meant little when it came to the actual outcome. On the strength of a 44 save performance from journeyman netminder Curtis McElhinney, the Columbus Blue Jackets managed to waltz out of town with a 4-3 shootout victory they had no business getting.

Edmonton - Mar. 17, 2015: While it is rather difficult for most hockey fans to not take some enjoyment from watching their favourite team lay the boots to the Toronto Maple Leafs, last night's 4-1 win proved to be a rather costly one for the Edmonton Oilers. When you couple last night's victory with the Arizona Coyotes loss to the Los Angeles Kings, the two teams now find themselves deadlocked at fifty points apiece with only twelve games remaining on their respective schedules.
