Three Thoughts: The vote

So, it would appear Peter Chiarelli, Edmonton Oilers’ GM and president of hockey operations, is the man boss Bob Nicholson feels comfortable moving forward with despite what’s been a desperately disappointing 2017-18 season. At least that’s my takeaway from Chiarelli’s interview on Prime Time Sports with Bob McCown a couple of days ago. In the...

After a lengthy hiatus from the team due to the tragic passing of his father, Adam Larsson has returned to practice with the Oilers today. There’s no word on whether or not he’ll play tomorrow in Arizona, but one would imagine he’ll be back in the lineup this weekend. Larsson hasn’t played since back on...

Golden Knights 4, Oilers 1 post-game Oil Spills: Undefeated against Vegas no more

I feel bad for the people who paid a bunch of money to fly down and watch that game. Highlights   Ryan Carpenter, some scrub claimed off waivers from San Jose, gave Vegas a 1-0 lead with this ugly goal. The Oilers kind of breezed around the defensive zone like they were playing shinny, Deryk...

Watch JJ Khaira beat up Colin Miller

The Oilers suffered from the Vegas Flu yesterday in their bout against the Golden Knights last night. They looked limp, slow, and got completely overmatched by an expansion team. To be fair, the Golden Knights have made a lot of teams look really bad this year, so the Oilers aren’t standing alone there. Thankfully, though, there was...

Can Patrick Maroon return a first-round pick?

The trade deadline is fun for fans of both good and bad teams. Good teams load up and trade assets to try and win, while bad teams sell off their pending free agents and look towards next year. The Oilers fall in the latter, and that could be very lucrative according to TSN’s panel of...

Irreversible

If the Edmonton Oilers continue to lose (now five in a row) it’s going to cost a lot of people their NHL jobs. Fans are talking about the coach and the general manager, but the real cost will be to the players. Same as it ever was. In 2009-10, Robert Nilsson played in 60 games for the Oilers, scoring 11 goals and 27 points. He was 24, and would never play in the NHL again. Patrick O’Sullivan was also 24 that year, scoring 34 points in 73 games. He would play for three more teams in two s
