Oilers Struggles Intensify

The Edmonton Oilers made yet another mercy pull Monday. This time was different though, it wasn't one of the goaltenders that were a decided improvement on Devon Dubnyk last season, (are we so sure that was a drastic improvement now?) no it was head coach Dallas Eakins who was mercifully pulled from this season and it's losses.

Hall’s Injury Indicates Holes in Oilers’ Roster

Taylor Hall is out. Again. But of course, early in the season. This injury is not a statement about Taylor Hall’s health, athleticism or work ethic; this is about the Edmonton Oiler’s ability to fill in their roster.

Hall on pace for 80 points

Not one Edmonton Oiler since Doug Weight has netted 80 points in a single season, and that was the 2000/2001 season a mere 13 years ago. Now, standing at 77 points in 73 games, with 2 games to go, point per game winger Taylor Hall just might hit 80 in this his 4th NHL season, with a bottom of the league team.

Hall to the Wall

He’s back. The Nuge makes his long awaited, much anticipated, healthy return to the Edmonton Oilers’ lineup Monday night against the New Jersey Devils. No one, not one person could be more relieved than Taylor Hall, not even Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. Hall has had a good run playing first line centre, but it’s not a role the young winger relishes, nor is it something that Hall could master during his short span to start the season.

Hall Facing Suspension

With the Oilers’ record falling, and the short season becoming shorter, there is no room for error. There is especially no room for lengthy suspensions due to atrocious hits. But that’s exactly what we can expect as the reaction from the league to Taylor Hall’s knee on knee hit on Cal Clutterbuck in Edmonton Thurdsay night.

2010, A Very Good Oilers Year

The Edmonton Oilers may have finished dead last in the spring of 2010, but they could finish first in that year's draft class. While teams hope for one or two players to make the NHL, or a significant impact in the AHL, the Oilers may have struck gold with each and every pick. 

While on his visit to Oklahoma City, Terry Jones of the Edmotnon Sun was able to catch up and on each of the 2010 draft picks, all of which find themselves on Edmonton Oilers affiliated professional teams. 

With the exception of Bunz, last year’s WHL goaltender of the year who they want to play 60 games with Stockton in the ECHL, they’re all here this year, they’re all members of the Oklahoma City Barons.

In 2010 GM Steve Tambellini gave MacGregor the bullets. It was essentially the year Tambellini and staff put together the development model to take the Oilers to a place they’d never been before, one only the Detroit Red Wings had ever aspired to become, and realized, as an organization.

Oilers Ink Eberle to 6 Years $36 Million

Cross another name off of the list of young players that the Oilers need to ink up long term as Lady Byng candidate sophomore Jordan Eberle has signed his extension. While Eberle’s agent may have gone into negotiations with the intentions of signing Eberle to more money than Hall based on their current production to date, Eberle has in fact signed a deal quite similar to his roommate, teammate and friend Taylor Hall, 6 years $36 million.
