Yesterday we reviewed the trade value of the Edmonton Oilers’ goalies and defensemen.

Oilers Trade Value: Goalies & Defense
The regular season is winding down, and the Edmonton Oilers are gearing up for the off-season. It’s been a long and disappointing season and it’s time to begin the evaluation period. Edmonton might not be making wholesale changes this summer, but there’s a lot that needs to be done; the most pressing is to find […]
Is Cam Talbot the Long-Term Answer for Oilers?
It’s nonsense to think some people are suggesting the Edmonton Oilers should trade Cam Talbot. It was just one year ago that Talbot was the second-most valuable player in Edmonton’s lineup behind Connor McDavid. He also finished fourth in Vezina Trophy voting and set an Oilers record for most wins in a season. If you’re looking […]
Should the Oilers Fire Chiarelli & McLellan?
With the 2017-18 season coming to a close shortly, the Edmonton Oilers are faced with some tough decisions on where to go from here. The team flat-out stumbled and regressed after a fantastic showing in 2016-17. A lot has gone wrong, and now it’s time to figure out how to get this team back into […]
Oilers Five Thoughts: Pontus Aberg, J.D. Dudek & Others
The NHL trade deadline has come and gone, and the Edmonton Oilers took their lumps as sellers.

Best Trade Deadline Deals in Oilers History
With the 2018 NHL Trade Deadline fast approaching, it’s time we take a trip down memory lane. The Edmonton Oilers will have a handful of players they’ll be looking to move on or before Feb. 26. Unless they can come to terms on an extension with Patrick Maroon, you can bet the Oilers will be […]
What Do the Oilers Do with Milan Lucic?
I’m going to throw a lot of stats at you quickly. Milan Lucic hasn’t scored a goal in 21 games for the Edmonton Oilers. It’s a cold streak that extends back all the way to December 23 against the Montreal Canadiens. Since the Christmas break, Lucic has just four assists and has only registered a […]
Oilers News: Updates on Maroon, Nurse, Yamamoto, Benson
The Edmonton Oilers have now dropped six consecutive games, and have seen their playoff aspirations take a massive hit as a result. In February alone, the Oilers are 1-6-1 through eight games and are now 19 points out of the playoffs. If the Western Conference teams continue at their current pace (points-per-game), it could take […]
What Will Darnell Nurse Cost the Oilers?
Edmonton Oilers defenseman Darnell Nurse is a restricted free agent (RFA) this summer. The Andrej Sekera injury at the start of the season created an opportunity for one of Nurse, or Matt Benning a chance to play top-four minutes. Benning was first but faltered. Once Nurse got his look, he gradually took off and has […]
Tyler Benson Back on Track for Oilers
Over the past few weeks, we’ve talked about a couple of prospects in the Edmonton Oilers’ pipeline. It’s now time to turn our attention to a guy who’s had a lot of struggles with injuries during his development, Tyler Benson. It’s been the biggest concern since he was drafted 32nd overall in 2016. It’s easy […]
Oilers Prospect Kailer Yamamoto Is Tearing Apart the WHL
Since coming back from the 2018 World Junior Championships, Edmonton Oilers prospect Kailer Yamamoto has absolutely torn apart the WHL. The 22nd overall pick in the 2017 NHL Draft has had an impressive nine multi-point games since the WJC. He was riding an 11-game point streak that went back to Dec. 9 that was finally snapped […]
Patrick Maroon & the NHL Trade Deadline
With the NHL Trade Deadline quickly approaching, there seems to be plenty of rumors surrounding Edmonton Oilers forward Patrick Maroon. It’s no secret the 29-year-old is a pending unrestricted free agent (UFA) this summer and is the most valuable of Edmonton’s pending free agents. Last week I ran a poll asking fans if they thought […]
Oilers Aren’t Making the Playoffs
For every fan that’s holding onto a glimmer of hope, it’s time to face the cold hard truth. The Edmonton Oilers are not going to make the playoffs this year. If there was ever a point in the season to pinpoint as the moment, you could say that it was this three-game California road trip. […]
