Weekly Rumours – The Brassard Saga and the RFAs

Remember when we thought @Derick Brassard was going to be an Oiler? Those were good times. Now, we’ll likely have to go through another couple of weeks without any significant Oilers new. That, combined with more RFA drama, sparked the rumour mill and made writing this weeks rumour report a lot of fun! DERICK BRASSARD CAME & WENT Fun fact, I originally wrote this weeks rumour report with 500 words on the potential Derick Brassard signing. That was a really good use of my time because pre

TEN TIDBITS: Mid-August Edition

It’s the middle of August and while you may think it’s a super slow time of year for Oilers news there always seem to be a few things to discuss. THE BRASSARD ERA The @Derick Brassard Era was just so much fun. First, Laraque tweets he’s going to sign a one year deal, then on Wednesday morning Matheson tweets that nothing has been confirmed as of yet and then at 2:00 PM I confirmed he was going to the Islanders on a one-year deal. The entire saga lead to some excellent text messages on th

The Copper & Blue Top 25 Under 25: #16- Jujhar Khaira

The Copper & Blue Top 25 Under 25: #16- Jujhar Khaira

Harrison Barden-USA TODAY Sports Alright, first of all, I want to nip this in the bud. Jujhar Khaira is 25 years old. He turned 25 eight days ago. If you haven’t wished him a happy birthday, the window’s likely closing on wishing him a happy belated. Also, one could argue that because of this, he shouldn’t be on this list. Well, we voted for this list before he turned 25, so you’re going to have to get over it. Though I understand if you want to cancel your nonexistent subscription.

Edmonton Oilers: Edmonton Media Use Poorly Translated Quote in Attempt to Put Yet Another Nail in Puljujarvi’s Coffin.

I thought it’s about time to comment on the week’s Jesse Puljujarvi drama as yesterday it finally made its way to the radio and I hadn’t posted anything in a week or so. This one has me fired up though. The erroneous Jesse Puljujarvi quote that is driving the Edmonton media mad and making its way around the hockey world is this one, “I want a team where I get a place in one of the first two lines and where I get to play for 15 minutes per game,” Puljujärvi said, via Google Translate

Cooper Marody Looking to Breakout in Hockey and Music

@Cooper Marody will turn 23 on December 20th and where he will celebrate his birthday is undetermined. He could be in his second season in Bakersfield, or he could a member of the @Edmonton Oilers. Marody had an excellent rookie season with the Condors, scoring 19 goal and 64 points in 58 games. He also skated in six games with the Oilers, and he is determined to not only play more games with the Oilers, but to be an impact player. But Marody isn’t only focused on hockey. He loves music and h

Walls and Bridges

If the Edmonton Oilers do sign Derick Brassard, it makes the 23-man roster far easier to project. Jujhar Khaira can move back to the wing, Kyle Brodziak and Colby Cave can fight for the No. 4 center job, and Cooper Marody can focus on making the team in multiple positions. THE ATHLETIC! The Athletic Edmonton features a fabulous cluster of stories (some linked below, some on the site). Great perspective from a ridiculous group of writers and analysts. Proud to be part of the group, here

Oilers Need to Prepare for an Alex Chiasson Drop Off

Oilers Need to Prepare for an Alex Chiasson Drop Off

The 2018-19 season was one to remember for Alex Chiasson. Despite just coming off a season in which he got to raise the Stanley Cup with the Washington Capitals for the first time in his career, last season may have been more memorable. He set career highs in points and goals totaling 22 goals, 16 assists and 38 points. Even with the point numbers being relatively low, he still managed to be the fifth-highest scorer on the team. The Oilers couldn’t be happier that they found themselves a rela
