One would think after leading the Edmonton Oilers in scoring for three of the last five seasons that Jordan Eberle would have bought himself a little bit of rope, but apparently that is not the case. Since making his season debut on November 2nd against the Pittsburgh Penguins, the silky smooth sniper has struggled mightily to find his game....

Talk about Nail Yakupov being a bust is absurd. A bust is a draft pick that didn't work out, drawing the lines as broadly as possible.

Spinning Wheels, No Traction in Edmonton New season, same results. Such has become the unfortunate routine for the Edmonton Oilers, who have continued their seemingly endless futility into the 2015-16 NHL season. Despite a number of changes made throughout the 2015 off-season, in particular upgrades to both defense and goaltending, as...

With the Edmonton Oilers wallowing in their customary spot at the bottom of the NHL standings, the calls for Peter Chiarelli to trade one of his "inherited" core pieces have been growing. While the odd crazed fan has suggested the club move Taylor Hall in what could arguably be one of the dumbest moves any team could make, the vast majority of...
