The Edmonton Oilers seriously lack forward prospects

Part of a disappointing season means calling up NHL-ready prospects to see if they can fill roles. What makes a disappointing season even worse is when there’s nothing of substance to call up. Jesse Puljujarvi’s already in Edmonton. After the Oilers’ 2016 first-round pick, there’s no one in a veteran-filled Bakersfield team. Bakersfield’s top-five scorers...

Takeaways: Lifeless Oilers in need of heart transplant

Question the Edmonton Oilers leadership? Sure. Their professionalism? Why not? There were still 27 games left in the 2017-18 season when they dropped the puck Thursday night in Las Vegas, but the Oilers played like the season had ended a week ago.
