Mike Cammalleri and Other Old Guy Additions from the Last Decade

The Edmonton Oilers weren’t very good for the large part of the past decade. When you’re not making the playoffs you’re usually sending players out instead of bringing them in.

Player grades: Edmonton Oilers lose the plot on home ice yet again, get blown out by Blues

Blues 4, Oilers 1 Edmonton Oilers may have designs on being a Western Conference power, but have a long, long way to go if Thursday night’s game is our guide. One of the best teams in the West skated on to Edmonton ice and wiped the floor with the Oilers, rolling to a 4-1 win that wasn’t as close as the score indicated. The game featured a spirited and evenly-played first period, but as the game wore on the Blues turned up the heat and the Oilers simply wilted. The Blues

Oilers/Blues: Five Things We Learned After Game 19

The Oilers have just lost 4-1 to the Western Conference-leading St.Louis Blues and I’d say I’m feeling a bit shortchanged… The first period was perfect.

Another plus to the game was that Tarasenko didn’t score but after the first 20 minutes, the game went to shit for the Oilers. I’d like to see the boys do something about being kept to the outside and being forced to play a
