Five reasons I’m excited about next season

Alright, so the season is done and we’re all salty about the way things went, which is expected and understandable, but I wanted to try to bring a little sunshine in this otherwise dreary Oilers-world we’re living in. I wanted to try and turn the narrative a little bit and give you guys five reasons that I’m looking forward to next season. For as bad as the 2017-18 season was, the Edmonton Oilers are still the bridge that unites us all and I want to look at some of the good things that ar

Fantastic first impression of Cooper Marody, the product of the Patrick Maroon trade

Fantastic first impression of Cooper Marody, the product of the Patrick Maroon trade

For what it’s worth, I had a fantastic first impression of Edmonton Oilers prospect Cooper Marody from his late game of the year in Bakersfield in the American Hockey League. Marody, 21, is the player Edmonton got from Philadelphia for a third round pick that the Oilers got in the Patrick Maroon trade. Marody was the 215th pick by 2015 draft. He played three years at the University of Michigan, coming into his own his junior year when he put up 51 points in 40 games. I say “for what it’s

POLL: Trade The Pick?

POLL:  Trade The Pick?

If the Oilers can swing a deal with their first round pick in 2018, would you do it? Yesterday I had some great memories about the last decade when I cheerfully reminded myself that the NHL Draft Lottery is coming up next Saturday. The Oilers could do what they’ve been (in)famously good at doing in the last eight years, and that’s win the lottery outright. There’s also a chance that they could win the second overall pick, the third overall pick, the ninth, tenth, eleventh, or twelfth ov

Three Thoughts: On the way?

To understate, it’s been awhile since the Edmonton Oilers drafted and developed a goaltender who turned out to actually be worth the wait. That would be Devan Dubnyk, who was taken 14th overall in 2004, navigated the minefield that was Edmonton’s minor league maze, graduated to the Oilers’ crease on a bad team during the Decade of Darkness, was cut loose after one terrible season when the wheels fell off and then landed on his feet rather nicely in the blue paint with the Minnesota Wild.

McDavid visits Humboldt

There is a beautiful moment happening in the small town of Humboldt. In a town that is still reeling from the tragedy that took place with the Broncos, news has been surfacing over the last few hours that Connor McDavid has been spending some time in the community. In his usual understated fashion, McDavid’s visit was not at all publicized until word started to spread that he landed in the community spend time with some local kids. Clearly, McDavid did not want to make a big deal about this

(Video) McDavid Mic’d Up

Making it’s rounds last night across the interwebs was a video of a compilation of the top “mic’d moments of 2017-18.” If you haven’t taken the time to watch it, I highly recommend. In a league of “lobotomized” twitter accounts and “cookie-cutter” interviews that we never really get to see the human side of things in, having something like this to watch is special. I took some time to cut down the video into the best parts, and low and behold, they were all of Connor McDavid,
