Oilers Acquire Fraser From Toronto

Some news from the Oilers this morning, the team has acquired Mark Fraser from the Maple Leafs. Why the Oilers have done this I don't really know. It's certainly not because Fraser can play hockey.

Ales Hemsky Returning To Edmonton

The will be no Ales Hemsky in Minneapolis tonight. Which means one less reason to watch the game.

The Other Shoe Drops

Kings Trade Ben Scrivens to Oilers for a 3rd Round Draft Pick

For Some Reason the Oilers Trade For Hendricks.

The Oilers need help up and down the lineup. Today Craig MacTavish made a trade that addresses none of those needs. Unless I missed the team's need for over the hill, bottom six forwards on deals that can only be described as questionable.

On Scratching Nail Yakupov

The Edmonton Oilers made Nail Yakupov a healthy scratch on Saturday. How is he responding?

Taylor Hall Moves Back to Left Wing

"With Nugent-Hopkins coming back, it's good to give him some players that he's familiar with. The second part of it is Hall's whole line that he'd been playing with who were good in training camp have suffered a little bit early, so we'll shake that up.... We may not be finished with Hall in the middle, but at least for the next game--or at least for the start of it--we are."

That's head coach Dallas Eakins talking about moving Taylor Hall back to left wing. For a deeper look at the struggles of Hall's line, check out the excellent article Tyler Dellow wrote earlier today.

Weekend Update: Now What?

It's official folks, these are the dog days of summer where there is not much hockey talk to speak of. Still we have no idea what has happened to Linus Omark, we have no idea when or if there will...

Weekend Update: Oh Omark

This week in oil country

Oilers Sign Chris VandeVelde and Alex Plante

The Oilers have signed Chris VandeVelde and Alex Plante to one-year contracts.

Yakupov Signs Entry-Level Contract

Nail Yakupov signs his ELC with the Edmonton Oilers. The new CBA was likely the cause for the delay in getting the deal signed, but doing so now makes sense for both parties.

Weekend Update: Waiting

The free agency frenzy has long since ended, but still the Oilers have yet to make any BIG moves to their roster. Yes, it's true that the Oilers did acquire Justin Schultz, but what else? Schultz...

With Sam Gagner's arbitration hear set to start in just a few hours the two sides have reached an agreement on a one-year deal that will pay the Oilers centre $3.2M this season thereby avoiding the whole arbitration process.

Sam Gagner and the Oilers Look Like They're Heading to Arbitration

At this point it looks very likely that Sam Gagner's next contract will be determined not through negotiations with the Oilers but by an arbitrator.
