This Summer Will We Finally See A Bold Move?

Last summer Craig MacTavish talked of bold moves that never happened, should we expect anything different this time around?

Top 25 Under 25 - #2 Ryan Nugent-Hopkins

How is Nugent-Hopkins doing compared to his draft comparables?

My Name Is Ryan, And I'm Part Of The Problem

I'm an eight year season ticket holder, I hate where the Oilers are at, and when my season ticket renewal comes in the mail I will give the Oilers my money without hesitation. And I'll hate myself a little because I know that I'm part of the problem.

Top 25 Under 25 - #6 Justin Schultz

An update on Justin Schultz's progress in the NHL.

The Oilers are winning games. Turning point or no?

The Oilers are 9-4-3 in their last 16 games. That's a stretch that coincides nicely with the trade for Ben Scrivens. Are the recent results a sign that things are moving in the right direction, or just a run of good luck?

Never Say Never, But Yakupov Isn't Getting Traded

Hockey fans in Edmonton know very well that any player can be traded, but right now I'd say it's highly unlikely that Nail Yakupov is going anywhere.

It Should Hurt More

The Oilers ship out yet another good NHL player for empty hope and failed promises.

Looking Ahead To 2016, My Rogers Place Wish List

Construction related activities began Monday on Rogers Pace, the building that will be the Oilers new home when the 2016/17 begins, so I put together a wish list of sorts for the new arena. After all it's our tax dollars, why shouldn't we have a say?

Oilers Sign Ben Scrivens

The Edmonton Oilers have signed goalie Ben Scrivens to a two-year contract.

As We Prepare To Wave Goodbye To Ales Hemsky

It's a near certainty that a week from now, after the NHL trade deadline has passed, that Ales Hemsky will no longer be a member of the Edmonton Oilers. For him the pain of losing will be over soon. For the rest of us, who knows.


Top 25 Under 25 - #15 Greg Chase

An update on Greg Chase's progress in the WHL.

Top 25 Under 25 - #20 Anton Slepyshev

How is Anton Slepyshev doing in the KHL?

Top 25 Under 25 - #21 David Musil

How is David Musil progressing in the AHL?

The Top 25 Under 25 - Saying Farewell to Tyrvainen

Will Antti Tyrvainen make it into the Top 25 Under 25 in his last year of eligibility?

The Top 25 Under 25 - Luke Gazdic Edition

Will Luke Gazdic make Edmonton's Top 25 Under 25?

The Top 25 Under 25 Returns

With the NHL taking a break for the Olympics (and Oiler fans taking a break from all of this losing to cheer on a winner), this is the perfect time for the Copper and Blue to deliver the winter edition of the Top 25 Under 25.

Nail Yakupov and +/-

Hockey Graphs takes on the lore of +/- and shows just how useless it is.

Spend or Save Between the Pipes Next Season?

Goaltending has been a significant problem for the Oilers this season. Should they spend big money in the offseason to solve the problem?

Eakins Takes Spector to Task

Dallas Eakins has had a horrific year as the Oilers head coach but every now and then he gives us gold.

To Daryl Katz

I pen this letter to you, so that I might say nothing within...

Ben Scrivens' "Audition"

Let's explore this line of thinking...

The Peter Principle and The Oilers

The Peter Principle is the principle that "in a hierarchy every employee tends to rise to their level of incompetence".

Fixing the Edmonton Oilers Part 1 – The Current Te

A 3 part look at fixing the Oilers without the orbital nuclear strike.

Play Gazdic. Protect The Kids. Blah, Blah, Blah.

Luke Gazdic does not deter other teams from hitting Taylor Hall. Many have written about this, and to me it's common sense, but still there are guys like Jim Matheson who think the opposite because Semenko played on a line with Gretzky 30 years ago.

In Search Of 62: The Quest To Be The Worst

The Oilers are on pace for a end of season point total lower than those of the 2009/10 and 2010/11 teams that finished dead last. Can they do it?

Re-sign Smyth? Obviously

Ryan Smyth is a nice option for the bottom six...with a caveat.
