G21 2017-18: Oilers at Blues

Their early years featured two goalies who belong on hockey’s Mount Rushmore (Glenn Hall and Jacques Plante) and the greatest coach in NHL history (Scotty Bowman) figuring out how to keep players off balance and insecure. Pick a name from those early teams and you’ll find a treasured hockey story. Gerry Melnyk played for St. Louis in their first year of expansion, then was traded to Philadelphia. He retired before t

Let’s Talk About Kris Russell

Let’s Talk About Kris Russell

Let’s get one thing out of the way right now. I don’t hate Kris Russell as a player at the NHL level. I think he can help a team win and can be part of a successful team if he plays in the right role. Last season, I thought the Oilers were playing him too high up in the lineup but he held his ground and played well for the most part. The problem is, GM Peter Chiarelli decided to gamble on Russell, assuming that last year was the new normal for a player that really has never establ

Oilers Scouting Blue Jackets/Sabres

With the Edmonton Oilers’ season hanging on by a thread, the club appears desperate to try and find some answers to their current issues. With internal help almost non-existent now that Jesse Puljujarvi is on the big club, Edmonton’s only real option for help is via trade. General Manager Peter Chiarelli, who last week acquired Michael Cammalleri from Los Angeles, is apparently still searching the market for answers. Earlier tonight, Chiarelli, along with VP of Player Personal Dua

Does Carey Price of the Montreal Canadiens to Edmonton Oilers rumour make any sense? I can't see it

Does Carey Price of the Montreal Canadiens to Edmonton Oilers rumour make any sense? I can't see it
