Throughout his incredibly short career to date, Connor McDavid has been shattering expectations. No matter his age or the level of hockey being played, McDavid has long outperformed his opponents, regularly leaving his teammates in awe of his raw, explosive skill. What is perhaps most daunting is the fact that, with the 2016-17 NHL season...

When I last looked at five trades that defined a collapse of Edmonton Oiler hockey, I took a look at a dynasty team and how it turned it into, in many ways, the running joke of the NHL. Few, if any teams fell from grace in a way the Oilers did. Trading names like Wayne Gretzky, Mark Messier, Glenn Anderson, Doug Weight and Chris Pronger would be...

The coming 2016-17 NHL season is ripe with opportunity for a number of Edmonton Oilers players. At forward, Jesse Puljujarvi and Drake Caggiula will be provided with legitimate shots to make the main roster out of training camp, while Darnell Nurse and Adam Larsson, two players of seemingly endless potential, will be provided with substantial...

Few teams fall from grace in a way the Edmonton Oilers have. The Oilers of the mid-80's to 1990 were a dynasty team that looked like they had a chance to win Stanley Cup after Stanley Cup.

The summer of 2016 for the Edmonton Oilers has been an interesting one. Since the draft, the Oilers have gone about reshaping their franchise with roster-altering moves like the trade of Taylor Hall to New Jersey, the drafting of NHL ready Jesse Puljujarvi and the signing free agent Milan Lucic. These moves have taken what is traditionally a time...

Well, the 2016-17 NHL season is rapidly approaching, and once again the perpetually poor Edmonton Oilers will look to regain relevance in a League which they once dominated some three decades ago. Yet, this Oilers season seems to retain a newfound aura of optimism, one not felt to such an extent in quite some time. Sure, it was a tough...

Over the past five NHL seasons, ranging from 2011-16, no team in the League has allowed more Goals Against (GA) than the Edmonton Oilers. In fact, the Oilers' 1148 GA in their 376 games played over that period of time equates to a horrific 3.05 GA/GP, a mark which is in no way flattering considering Edmonton produced just 2.45 GF/GP over...
