Jesse Puljujarvi's turn to get "the Push" as Edmonton Oilers will play "A" team vs. Hurricanes

Preseason Game Day 6: Hurricanes at Oilers With the weekend’s cuts of seven players, the Edmonton Oilers’ roster continues to take shape.  That makes it an even 20 players who have been reassigned since the Oilers were split into two groups just five days ago. Every last one of those cuts came from Group B,

GDB -3.0: Close to NHL lineups

The Edmonton Oilers and Carolina Hurricanes will both dress rosters compiled mainly of NHL players tonight.

Countdown to the season question 13: What would Maroon extension look like?

The Oilers salary cap is currently $66.67 million. They have about $8.38 million in cap space, however, they have about a $1 million penalty from bonus overages last season, so they only have $7.38 million to add during the season. They likely won’t have a cap penalty next season, and if the cap remained at...

Stability and the Edmonton Oilers

Coming off a season that both re-energized and restored faith among their fan base, the Edmonton Oilers could not have asked for a better start to their 2017 pre-season schedule. As inconsequential as a 5-0 exhibition record is, keeping the core of this group intact from a year ago has greatly helped with the inevitable shift in expectation.

Oilers Going to a Poolparty?

I don’t know about you but I am still grinning like a butcher’s dog from Jesse Puljujarvi’s game against the Jets. When he scored that second goal I tossed my son into the air (gently of course) and yelled, “JEEEESSSSEEEEE!!!!!” and as I looked up at my boy, he had a huge smile on his face too! He knew He knew. Now, that game was exactly what that doctor ordered after all of the hoopla from the game previous to where Kailer Yamamoto took care of the Vancouver

At Random: The Little Guy

I still have my doubts rookie Kailer Yamamoto is ready for NHL primetime with the Edmonton Oilers despite being one of the best storylines of pre-season (because he hasn’t looked the least bit out of place). I’ve seen enough, though, to know I want to see him get a crack against some actual NHL line-ups....

HERE COME THE PEOPLE IN GREY

When I worked in sales, there were entire years of uneasy. There is a weekly nut (budget goal) and there is an end of the week and your entire body feels the ticking of the clock. Go long enough outside your comfort zone and you either succeed out of fear (of failure) or you find another job. We’re creatures of habit, we like the comfort that comes with control, repetition and consistency. Sometimes we create false ceilings and get comfortable with a plateau, and then someone comes along a

NHL Rumors and Notes: Blues, Oilers, Maple Leafs and KHL

On the St. Louis Blues … Jeff Gordon of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch: (chat) If the Blues suffer any more injuries, depth could become an issue. Colorado Avalanche center Matt Duchene would be a great fit for the Blues, but the timing isn’t great for the Blues. GM Doug Armstrong appears to be hoping that
