5 points on Edmonton's stomping of Winnipeg Jets semi-AHL squad

5 points on Edmonton's stomping of Winnipeg Jets semi-AHL squad

It’s likely wise not to make too much of Edmonton’s 7-3 stomping of the Winnipeg Jets, as the Jets sat out almost all their top players and essentially went with a line-up featuring the bottom half of their NHL players and the top half of their AHL players. That said, there were a few things to note both good and bad with the Oilers play. Here are five things that caught my attention. Number One: Of course, McDavid line was tremendous, with RNH and McDavid looking like they were destined to

GDB Wrap up -6.0: KEEP ROLLING

Look, we all know the pre-season doesn’t matter. These games don’t count towards the standings, neither team is playing at 100 percent, and we shouldn’t draw too many conclusions from them. But still, damn, it’s difficult not to get fired up after a showing like that. What happened? The Oilers exploded for seven goals on 37 shots and ended up with an easy 7-3 victory over the Winnipeg Jets. Winnipeg’s lineup didn’t feature many key players, like Dustin Byfuglien, Blake Wheeler, Nik

The Edmonton Oilers 1st line grounds the Jets in a 7-3 pre-season route

An out-manned Winnipeg Jets team stayed with the Edmonton Oilers for 2 periods on Thursday night. But when the Connor McDavid line cranked it all the way up in the 3rd Period at Rogers Place, the Jets had no answer. That trio with McDavid, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Ty Rattie scored 11 points among them…and dominated the Jets defence, which was better manned than their forward ranks. Make the final a decisive 7-3 pre-season win. Lots for the coaches to mull over, as they try to whittle down this

Healthy Oscar Klefbom eager to help lead Oilers blue line

EDMONTON — Oscar Klefbom doesn’t want to be that guy. You know, the guy who plays when it’s easy, but always seems to be somewhere else — usually on the trainer’s table — when the bullets are flying. Who says, as Klefbom puts it, “‘Sorry, we had a good year last year. But now it’s time for me to take a year off …’” The irony is, he has been that guy. And he played hurt all last season so he wouldn’t be that guy again, when his shoulder was bad from the day he arrived i
