Dylan Strome excelling with Blackhawks following trade from Coyotes

Dylan Strome knew it was something he would have to fight through by himself. The third pick in the 2015 draft by the Arizona Coyotes — selected on the heels of Connor McDavid and Jack Eichel, and one spot before Mitch Marner — was struggling mightily to find traction in the NHL. As his contemporaries excelled early in their careers, Strome was returned to junior twice and spent more than half of last season in the AHL. Coming into 2018-19, the centre had registered four goals a

Oil Spills podcast: Bright spots among Oilers' fading playoff hopes

In this episode, host Craig Ellingson and hockey beat writer Derek Van Diest focus on the ever-slimmer playoff hopes of the Edmonton Oilers. They’re pretty much hopeless, practically, but because the NHL’s Western Conference has a lot of mediocre teams this season — the Oilers among them — Edmonton still has hope this late in the campaign. At the same point last year, the Oilers were well back of the playoff pack and out of the race. Also: Connor Mcdavid and his Hart Trophy odds — li

Edmonton Oilers' greatest weakness? Among several candidates, poor transition game stands out

Edmonton Oilers' greatest weakness? Among several candidates, poor transition game stands out

Game Day 73: Oilers at Blues The tumblers fell in place for your correspondent to attend the most recent Edmonton Oilers game, at Las Vegas on Sunday night as part of the Air Canada Fan Flight promotion. It was my first chance to attend a National Hockey League game in an American city after perhaps 750 live games in Canada over the 40 years since the Oilers joined the NHL. Not just any American city, mind, but the league’s newest market with some very new ideas about its approach to entertai

Oil Kings Regular Season Ends on a High Note The Edmonton Oil Kings won the Central Division over the weekend as the WHL Regular season came to a close. The Oil Kings put together an 11 game winning streak to end the season; this winning streak allowed them to keep the lead in a tightly contested Central Division. By winning their division the Oil Kings ensured that they play the first wild card team. In this case, that team is Medicine Hat, however it wouldn’t have had to be. Prince Albert,

One Minute Men – Oilers vs Blues (March 19, 2019)

We’re back! After a long trip to Vegas, we are tired and a little blue from losses and hangovers. What better way to pick up where we left off than a classic song about the team we are playing. See if Cam and I can read the notes in under a minute. Also, good luck getting this song out of your head! If you haven’t read the game day notes yet, you can find them here. Yes they’re a little Koskinen focussed, but he’s a hot topic lately. I really hope Mikko can get out of this funk and stea

The Good, Bad & Ugly: Keith Gretzky Edition

Keith Gretzky has become a very polarizing candidate as the Oilers continue to search for their next General Manager. We have seen a few members of the local media throw their support behind Gretzky as a candidate while members of the Oilers fan base appear to be leaning the opposite way. I’m going to attempt to take an unbiased look at what Gretzky may, or may not, bring to the Oilers if he does, in fact, get the job. THE GOOD: The most impressive feather in Gretzky’s cap is what he’s b

GDB 73.0: Reduce the Risk (6pm MT, SNW)

Some idioms are more popular than others. There are the often used “hit the hay,” or “kill two birds with one stone.” I’ve found males like to use them more often, specifically fathers. I guarantee you can quote a saying or idiom your father used throughout your childhood and into your adult life. You likely use it now too. Dads have some of the best. My father’s favourite idiom was, “It costs an arm and a leg.” He grew up poor and was careful with his money. In hindsight, one o

Edmonton Oilers: Larsson vs. Russell PLUS What If Benson Wins the AHL ROY Award?

Yesterday, I was listening to Jason Gregor talk about the Oilers defense and he questioned what the difference was between Adam Larsson and Kris Russell? They both make $4M (or more) per year but what is it that separates the two defenders? Now, this question is coming off a putrid performance from the Oilers defense as a whole vs. Vegas, so perhaps there’s a bit of recency bias going on there. Then again, Larsson is not having a great year. I suspect he’s been playing through an injury bec

Oilers Season Seat Event Didn’t Help Sway Fans

Oilers Season Seat Event Didn’t Help Sway Fans

The Edmonton Oilers held a season ticket seat holder breakfast event on Monday morning. By most of the accounts **, the event was appreciated. It also didn’t sway many from their decision not to renew their season seats for next year. With a number of fans looking at three percent increases on the prices of their seats from last season but the Edmonton Oilers a team that will now have to pretty much run the table in their last ten games to make the postseason, there is a strong appetite not t
