What Do the Oilers Do with Milan Lucic?

What Do the Oilers Do with Milan Lucic?

I’m going to throw a lot of stats at you quickly. Milan Lucic hasn’t scored a goal in 21 games for the Edmonton Oilers. It’s a cold streak that extends back all the way to December 23 against the Montreal Canadiens. Since the Christmas break, Lucic has just four assists and has only registered a point in three games. He’s currently pointless in his last ten games. It’s a reversal in the script that saw Lucic pile up 13 points in 14 games during a December hot streak. Even to

Oilers News: Updates on Maroon, Nurse, Yamamoto, Benson

Oilers News: Updates on Maroon, Nurse, Yamamoto, Benson

The Edmonton Oilers have now dropped six consecutive games, and have seen their playoff aspirations take a massive hit as a result. In February alone, the Oilers are 1-6-1 through eight games and are now 19 points out of the playoffs. If the Western Conference teams continue at their current pace (points-per-game), it could take 94 points for the Oilers to make the playoffs. That means Edmonton would have to magically come up with 44 points in the remaining 25 games, or go 22-3-0 to k

G58 2017-18: Oilers at Avalanche

G58 2017-18: Oilers at Avalanche

The Oilers are now at six losses in a row and things that should be happening—Jesse Puljujarvi 18 minutes a night—are not yet taking place. I’m not certain Peter Chiarelli will be here in the fall, nor Todd McLellan, but Jesse Puljujarvi is an important part of the future. Not playing him now makes no sense at all. Even in a losing season there can be good things, and JP finding his way as an NHL player would be a huge development for this organization. Puljujarvi is averaging 1
