USA-Canada: The Epic of Epics?

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
This evening, I was blessed to watch a dandy of a hockey game between the rivaling nations, USA and Canada. Right from the outset, the Canadian atmosphere combined with the on-ice action itself made the last junior game of the decade easily the game of the tournament. This game was even better than the New Year's thriller last year. Both teams clearly expressed the desi...

World Junior Randoms

Posted Monday | Comments 0
Canada looks great this year, the U.S. team looks fantastic as well, I'm really looking forward to the game tomorrow! Led by Derek Stepan ( N.Y. Rangers) the U.S. has more than a few weapons to worry about, I love their speed and finally seeing creativity out of the U.S. program. To be a World Champion you have to be in a sport that the world participates in and beat o...

Heartbreak over Record break

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
Going into tonight's game against the American's there were a few things that Canada HAD to do... 1) Effective PP 2) Little to no individual free wheeling plays 3) Solid goaltending Let's recap shall we... 1) Canada was 1 for 3 tonight...which isn't really that bad..however against a team where special teams WILL make a difference, they needed. Of course the 1 p...

Eh! O' Crap! The US scored...

While the US's John Carlson may be saying his OT winner was a 'lucky shot', the fact that the US team left Saskatoon with the gold around their necks had very little to do with luck. As we saw in the New Years Eve tilt, Canada had little answer for both the American's speed, giving up numerous odd man rushes throughout the game, and their superior defensive ability. All ni...
I must say that it was nice to see the copper and blue finally win a game last night. Although I believe that the best way for this franchise to move forward is to continue to tank this season, I definitely felt some satisfaction in seeing a notch in the Win column. It is also important for the young players on the roster that we will look to form the core of the team movi...
First off... props to Richard C for his great blogs! After watching the Oilers pump up their farm system I have come to realize that there are only going to be two of the rookie forwards making the Oilers this year... and there are three main reasons that I can see: 1) The Oilers need to fulfill a commitment to Oklahoma in regards to providing a quality product that...

Weekly Roundup

It was a good news bad news type of week for the Calgary Flames. Good news: They recorded their first win Bad news: They recorded their first loss Good: They scored a power play goal Bad: The goal was scored into an empty net and was one of twelve chances in two games Good: Calgary beat a very good team in the LA Kings Bad: Calgary was clobbered by the O...
I’ve read some blog posts recently and the replies them that seem to indicate a strong feeling that the Flames have no prospects, that other teams have youth on their side and seem to imply that the Flames are destined to be a last place team. There are a couple things to look at here, are the Flames really that old? Do they really have no prospects? Of the players si...

I have been chomping at the bit now for about two and a half years and finally did something about it today. I was at one point in my life a paid hockey writer. Not paid very much mind you, but monthly deposits were being sent to my Paypal account. I had the glorious task of being a staff writer for Hockey's Future. My main beat was the Minnesota Wild. Think about that for...
Follow me on twitter @PHI_Flyers --------------------------------------------------- Okay so I have not blogged in a few days and I thought that it would be fun to blog today about something people could debate and argue for days. First I want to start with players under the age of 23. If you were the GM of the Flyers and could have ANY PLAYER UNDER 23 YEARS OLD, wit...
Looking through the rosters of many of the teams in the NHL I noticed how many teams lacked a top line forward. By top line I mean a talent player that you would realistically call a top 3 forward. I consider a front line, top 3 forward as a player who is a legitimate 30+ goal scorer and point per game player. Not a player who can have a 30 goal or point a game over a whol...
There was a thread on the Oiler's Blogger board about 12 Bold things the Oilers will do, and I decided to add my predictions, based on what seems the most logical. Unfortunately, that board often degenerates into a personal playground for several regulars, so the truly useful posts about actual hockey and the Edmonton Oilers get brushed to the wayside. So, I decided in...

Creating a blog like this will bring obvious controversy, agreements and disagreements. I know that. However, the Oilers are without a captain for the 13/14 season, so why not blog about it? The Oilers could always go the 3 assistant captains route, however, i feel that with all the young players the Oilers have, they will put a C on one of their younger players sweaters. ...
Time for my 3rd blog on the Oilers in the past 3 days! In this feature I will be guessing how many points I think the Oilers players will get during the upcoming 2013/2014 NHL season. I believe some players are due for a breakout season, or atleast a bounceback season. Of course, roster spots could still change. I will be doing the top 9 Forwards, top 5 Defense, and the...
Due to this being a great idea and most popular demand by Oiler fans, today's blog will focus on how the Oilers can improve their bottom 6 FW. When you look at the Oilers bottom 6 you currently have these 7 players... 3rd line: Smyth-Gordon-Hemsky 4th line: Jones-Lander-Joensuu/Brown To me that isn't a terrible bottom 6, but you definitely have a very weird and ...

The New Beatles (The Fab Four)

Continuing on a theme first written about in my earlier blog Parallels, it's fascinating to see how these young Oilers bear striking similarities to other people in history. Let's examine in this quick post. If you'd like to read Parallels, comparing the 13-14 Oilers to the 83-84 Oilers, it's here: http://my.hockeybuzz.com/blog.php?user_id=211317&post_id=15448 [b]T...

Coming into the 2013-2014 season, I was rather impressed with the moves that newly appointed GM, Craig MacTavish, had made for the Oilers. Granted, he didn't bring in any huge names, but he also didn't sit idly by (see: Steve Tambellini). It seemed like a fresh this was finally going to be the year that the Oilers came out of the basement to play with the big boys. He also...
I'm really starting to get sick of Sam Gagner, I don't understand why they pay him 4+ million to be ineffective. I'm going to go ahead and list the players the should get rid of before next season. Unfortunately I think that the Oilers will have to deal one of Eberle or Yakupov to fix the teams other needs, if I had a choice I would move yakupov bcuz Eberle is best friends...

If I Was MacTavish

Posted Saturday | Comments 0
Craig MacTavish has made some interesting moves this past year. Some good (Perron, Scrivens, Fasth, Hendricks) and some meh but safe (Fraser). MacTavish knows we have to shore up the defense and change the top 6. But will he do anything about it? Hemsky stated, as all Oiler fans have, we cannot keep playing merry-go-round in the bottom 6 and bottom pairing. If we do, he...
I'm looking forward to seeing the additions that MacT brought in action this fall. More specifically I want to see how the additions to the wing, Pouliot and Purcell perform. Both are secondary scorers who may not be an offensive juggernaut every night, but can chip in when needed. Over the last couple seasons, the Oilers have almost had to completely rely on Hall, Nuge...

The Trade Deadline.....

Posted Friday | Comments 0
Rumors, rumors.....rumors galore! For those of you that haven't figured it out yet.....that's all they are. Smoke. No fire. Lets start with a guy like Taylor Hall. He plays like a bull in a china shop. Good player? You know he is. Reckless, Yup. Uncoachable? Nobody really knows. Nobody would really say until after he was traded....if he was traded. What are you going to ge...
The Oilers have started the pre-season 6-0. Great! During the last game Jordan Eberle and his shoulder took a weird fall and he left the game... less great. However let's take a minute to look at this optimistically. Jump back to pre season of last year. If we were dealing with this injury then, most of us would already be looking ahead to the off season. A couple years ag...

Oilers Year 1 of the rebuild

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
Anyone can say that the Oilers have been rebuilding since 2007 but have they? Sure they have added some big name talent in proven players such as Eberle, Hall, RNH and Nail. Plus hopefuls such as Reinhart, Nurse, Draisatl and even Schultz for some prospecting sites. Still this is the first real year of anything resembling an attempt to improve the franchise all around. ...
If someone were to tell you that after 32 games the Oilers would be 15-12-5 and sit 3rd in the Pacific you would probably have been quite happy with that. Unfortunately the devil is in the details and over the past few weeks the Oilers have left valuable points off the table. There is a very good chance that if the Oilers are out of the playoff race in March, this stretch ...

Right Wing Hunting

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
Connor McDavid is kind of a big deal in case you are late to the party. He's unbelievably fast, has amazing vision, and while there is still plenty of debate on who the best player is in the NHL right now; he is by far the best playmaker. One thing McDavid is not, is a shooter. Right now Malkin and Crosby are tied for second in the league in scoring with 31 and 36 goals...
I don't like the Eberle for Strome deal as of today. Full Stop. The rest of the summer can change my mind but as of right now I view this as a massive step back for the team and in my opinion is an example of Oilers management mishandling their assets. We are going to ignore the fact for a moment the Strome's best year was 1 point less than Eberle's worst year. We a...
