HELLLLLLLLLLLO ladies and gentlemen. The 2015 NHL entry draft is over and the Edmonton Oilers made some impressive moves which included bringing in a former 4th overall all pick. Edmonton also traded for a goalie... Fuhr?. Oh not Fuhr... Never mind. But we'll get to who will be Edmonton's new number on goalie later!

Compared to Eakins, Nelson has be... Read More »
Do not plan the parade. One cannot blame Eakins on all of Edmonton's losses for the past two seasons. It's as much the players fault as it is Eakins' fault. With all the skill Edmonton has up front, one would not expect the Oilers to be shutout 4 times in 31 games; or to lose 14 of their 15 games, including an 11 games losing streak. As bad as Eakins record showed (36-63-14) he still had so... Read More »
