Oilers History

The Edmonton Oilers are a storied franchise that has enjoyed many successes and many difficult periods. There have been trades that have shaped the franchise. The Wayne Gretzky trade, on Aug. 9, 1988, is one of the most famous in professional sports history. It still haunts many Oilers fans to this date. However, there have also been many great trades that changed the franchise for the better. Here are the top five trades that have most positively impacted the Oilers franchise. 5.

EDMONTON — Jamie Benn scored the overtime winner as the Dallas Stars bounced back for a 5-4 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday. Benn scored for the first time in 16 games, sending home a backhand shot 1:14 into the extra frame Jason Dickinson, Miro Heiskanen, Blake Comeau and Tyler Seguin also scored for the Stars (11-8-2), who have gone 7-0-1 in their last eight games and have won 10 of their last 12. Jujhar Khaira had a pair of goals, and Leon Draisaitl and Ethan Bear also responded for the Oilers (13-6-3), who have lost two of their last three. Dallas started the scoring nine minutes into the opening period as the Oilers failed to clear the zone. Dickinson ended up with the puck in the slot, beating Edmonton starter Mikko Koskinen to the glove side. It only took the Oilers 11 seconds to counter as Khaira won a puck battle on the boards and muscled it past Stars goalie Ben Bishop. Edmonton Oilers left wing Jujhar Khaira and Minnesota Wild defenseman...

Toronto Maple Leafs

Rumors the New Jersey Devils will be trading Taylor Hall get louder and louder. Elliotte Friedman was recently a guest on Oilers Now with Bob Stauffer and said it's likely Hall is moved, Matt Larkin of the Hockey News is predicting what the return might be and the NHL Network speculates which teams might have a shot at Hall. In short, despite the fact the Devils would dearly like to hold onto their star forward, the chatter of Hall's exit doesn't seem to go away. One team that always seems to be part of that conversation is the Edmonton Oilers. Hall was asked if he would rule out a return to Edmonton should he be moved this season and his answer was simply that it was too early to rule anyone out. That wasn't a "yes", but more importantly, it wasn't a "no", either. If the Oilers were in the mix, and if they were even remotely interested, is it a good idea? The Logic Behind Adding Hall On the surface, it would seem insane to think any team wouldn't like to add Hall...
