Time to Switch the 1st Line

It is time Todd McLellan changes his top line and the reason is simple. They aren’t producing. In the last seven games Connor McDavid, Patrick Maroon and Leon Draisaitl have produced a 5×5 in goal in one game. They had two in the 8-2 drubbing of Vegas, but in the other six games they have...

Peter Chiarelli: General Disappointment

Peter Chiarelli: General Disappointment

Before the season started, the Oilers had the second best odds (in Vegas) to win the Stanley Cup. Optimism among media and fans was high, and any criticisms of weaknesses in the roster were seen as the ramblings of lunatics (or bad fans, as it were). Fast forward to November and the situation is considerably different than most some people expected. After 19 games, the Oilers are 7-10-2, which is good for 14th in the Western Conference, ahead of only Arizona. T

After last week’s solid Eastern road trip and the subsequent thrashing of the Golden Knights, most of us wanted to tell ourselves everything was turning around. But that wasn’t the case.

Whatever team you cheer for, no matter the year, there are games that frustrate you. Even during the glory days, the Oilers would throw up a dud in Hartford or Minnesota or sometimes even in Vancouver, at least for two periods. When these games occur, the mind comes up with the damndest ideas (also known as tantrums) to explain the absolute travesty laid at your feet. Most often the real answer is this: The better team won the game and your team either didn’t play well, isn’t good enough
