Looking to identify problems at hand, members of the media were genuine about

It’s been a long stretch for the Edmonton Oilers and their fans through the first 23 games of this season. Edmonton’s one of seven teams from the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs that are outside the playoff picture at U.S. Thanksgiving for 2017-18. If it’s any consolation, that includes last year’s Stanley Cup champions the Pittsburgh

The sample size is awfully tiny but it appears as though Jesse Puljujarvi has “improved” his game enough to ensure he remains with the Edmonton Oilers from here on out. Though the argument could be made his game wasn’t in need of further rehabilitation but rather an opportunity. Either way, the opportunity he was after

Last weekend, the Bakersfield Condors wrapped up a two-game series against the Tucson Roadrunners. The Condors dropped both games by a wide margin (6-3, 4-1) and now find themselves back in sixth place in the AHL’s Pacific Division. The Edmonton Oilers farm team has the same problems as the main club — neither can score

Heading into the 2017-18 season, the Edmonton Oilers had more than a few obstacles to overcome, most notably the extended absence of defenceman Andrej Sekera due to off-season knee surgery. However, what has been a rather unpleasant surprise is the addition of fellow blueliner Oscar Klefbom to said list with what can only be described

Things might not be running so smoothly for the Edmonton Oilers, but their minor league affiliate is starting to enjoy some success. The Bakersfield Condors are on a 2-0-1 run in their last three games. They’ve picked up five of a possible six points and moved into fourth place in the AHL’s Pacific Division. Under

Edmonton Oilers rookie Kailer Yamamoto is approaching the dreaded ninth game of his first NHL season. The 19-year-old was the Oilers’ 22nd overall pick in the 2017 NHL Draft in June. With a tantalizing skill set, he was one of the most offensively gifted forwards available in his draft class. Believe it or not, Yamamoto’s

Unless you were fortunate enough to be around to witness Paul Coffey play during his prime, it is unlikely you can comprehend how important he was to the success of the Edmonton Oilers. Anyone can look at his stat line and be impressed by the eye-popping totals. However, those numbers do not tell us just how integral

The Bakersfield Condors might have wished for a better start to their current five-game homestand. The Edmonton Oilers farm team dropped back-to-back games against the Stockton Heat. In their last game, the Condors fell behind 4-0 in the first period which led to Nick Ellis getting pulled after allowing four goals on nine shots. Ed Pasquale

It’s 10 games into the 2017-18 NHL season, and things haven’t gone according to plan for the Edmonton Oilers. The Oilers have the second-worst record in the Western Conference at 3-6-1, ahead of the winless Arizona Coyotes. Edmonton was supposed to be an offensive juggernaut led by Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl. The total offense

As much as the Edmonton Oilers slow start irked Todd McLellan, chances are the way his team was losing games is what bothered him most. Though they still gives up their share of chances, last night’s overtime loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins was the club’s third consecutive 2-1 outcome. Despite the loss, the head coach

If there’s one thing every current hockey fan knows, it’s that in 3-on-3 overtime, chances are regularly exchanged and the puck moves from one end of the ice to the other in rapid succession. 2-on-1 breaks are a consistency in extra time and if you can’t skate, you might as well play back in the neutral

It’s no secret Cam Talbot hasn’t been good out of the gate for the Edmonton Oilers.  Despite being pulled from two of his first four appearances, the hope was Todd McLellan wouldn’t hit the panic button and sit his starter against the Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday night. Unfortunately, he did just that and likely cost

The Bakersfield Condors are off to a 1-2-0 start to their 2017-18 AHL season. After losing their opener, the Condors have split their last two games against divisional opponents. On paper, the Condors are supposed to be a much stronger team than the one that finished sixth in the Pacific Division in 2016-17. A couple

After an incredible 2016-17 season when the Edmonton Oilers came within a fingernail of the Western Conference Final, this is not the start everyone expected in 2017-18. The Oilers are a playoff-calibre team, no doubt about it. A poor start to the season is common for a lot of great teams and does not reflect
