This past year, the Edmonton Oilers have given their fans a new [i]rollercoaster[/i] ~ one that gets your emotions going. Last summer, blue line veteran Chris Pronger requested to be traded. He is now public enemy #1 in Alberta's capital. I don't see it that way. His wife was not happy up here so I'm pretty sure that put Pronger inbetween a rock and a hard ...

Oilers Spark Some Life

Posted Friday | Comments 4
Wow, just when you think that the Oilers are down and out, and they bleed a little, they come out strong. The game last night against the Minnestoa Wild was great. Very fast paced, and very competative, something the Oilers really haven't been. In watching the last period in the Avalanche game on tuesday, I saw a flicker of life in the Oilers, they played great and showed ...
JARRET STOLL IS HAVING ANOTHER TOUGH YEAR IN OIL COUNTRY AND I HAVE COMPILED A FEW REASONS THAT EDMONTON COULD DEAL HIM SOONER THAN LATER. REASON #1 CONTRACT STOLL IS A RESTRICTED FREE AGENT AT THE END OF THE SEASON. THE OILERS NEED TO SPEND THEIR MONEY ON PLAYERS SUCH AS PITKANEN AND GILBERT WHICH ARE TWO YOUNG UP AND COMING D-MEN WHO ALONG...
Alright as with before I spin the roulette , it lands upon a team and I give my rather run down as it appears to my eye. Onto to the spin. ......... The Edmonton Oilers The Oilers are two season removed from their stanley cup final appearance . In that time they have gone through quite a bit. With the 07-08 season seeing the trade of their beloved captain and their ...
Let's look around the league to some serious head scratchers this year, I'm no expert but even the experts were picking these guys to be a lot more productive, feel free to share your own or comment on mine. Nick Backstrom- Caps- 4 points in 10 games. This kid is getting some serious sophmore jinx this year and it show because the next guy has way less than people thoug...

Shawn Score-coff!? I think not!

Posted Thursday | Comments 3
Its been 10 years and 506 games since the Shawn Horcoff experiment began and people are still wondering whether this guy can be a first line center or not. Nobody has ever questioned his leadership or work ethic and Im not going to start now but honestly, Shawn Horcoff is not a first line center. Never has been never will be. If it wasnt for the magnificent cross seam pass...

Off the top of my head

What a game last night The Blue jackets are a really good team and the Oilers Squeeked one out lead by none other then Penner, Gagne and Hemsky. Thats right the new #1 line. Go figure. So seriously, did we really need to go after Heatly or Jagr or Hossa. Nope the answer was there all along just nobody planted the seeds, gave it water and sun, and got it to grow. "Yes th...

Savard has a bad agent.

Posted Wednesday | Comments 27
I'm sorry... I must have misheard. You must be mistaken. 4.3 million cap hit for Savard? The guy is capable of 90 points and he cost less against the cap than Horcoff? I would like to take this opportunity to let all elite center men know that Calgary would like to sign you for the amazing high salary of 5 million a year. Hell... we'll give you 5.5 million, as long...
I don't blog very often for good reason, I rarely have much of value to say and when I do I would much rather have a beverage or two then sit down and write. Sadly, after yet another uninspired performance by the Oilers last night, alcohol only dulled the frustrations rather then extinguished them like usual. Yeah, I know...its not healthy to drink away the anger, tel...
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...

There have been a number of blogs written about Hemsky over the years and very few them have been negative. There’s a reason for that. Ales Hemsky is a good Hockey player. He’s obviously a great talent and his most well known fault is that he is injury prone. How many times have Oilers fans said “If Hemsky was healthy last year he would have scored so many more point...
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...

MacT I love ya. Not in a gay way but you know what I mean. You where able to trade Shawn Horcoff for something other than a bag of gym socks. Miracle. Philip Larsson and a 7th rounder. I didn't think we could even get a seventh for him! Miracle worker, I repeat a miracle worker. Again, I have nothing against Horcoff the player, except that he has no hands. He's...
I decided to write a little something to keep my fellow oiler posters entertained while they find a new oiler blogger. If you do like it, I may write another. If you don't like it, then I'm never showing my face here again. Let’s start with the big move of the summer. LW Magnus Paajarvi-Svensson(MPS) and a 2nd round pick in 2014 to St. Louis for LW David Perron. I m...
