G 25 Wild at Oilers - Lowetide
Lines in practice yesterday had Gagner on the 2line and Paajarvi back down on the 3line. If he doesn't shave those sideburns I don't know what'll happen. Coach Renney will probably go with NK tonight, Dubnyk's sideburns have been getting a little long too.

Game Day "Wild" - Oilers Jambalaya
It is up to this team to show their home fans what they are truly made of. This team has enough top end forward talent and decent top 4 defenceman to come out of this game with yet another win. The question remains, "Are the Edmonton Oilers for real? Or were they catching a early break on the teams in the early goings of the season?"

Lander Should Not Have Remained in the NHL - Oil Acumen
Before all the Anton Lander fans out there decide they want to start putting anthrax in my pillowcase, it should be said that Lander is a good player and will be part of the future of the Oilers. It's just that the future isn't now.

Tom Gilbert, No. 1 Defenseman - OilersNation
One of those pleasant surprises has been the play of Tom Gilbert. A polarizing figure among Oilers fans, Gilbert is a rarity: a competent, perpetually healthy NHL-calibre defenseman on a blue line that’s been handed over to the young, the unknown, the barely capable and the injury-prone far too often over the last few years. Over the first quarter of this season, he’s hit new highs in terms of performance.

Were I Anton Lander, I’d be a little nervous today

Oilers Give Ryan O'Marra the Call - The Copper & Blue
From what I can tell, O'Marra hasn't been on fire. He has just 8 points in 20 games, and hasn't gotten many opportunities on a featured line. In fact, in the game that I saw in Abbotsford, he started the game on the fourth line before moving up after Josh Green was injured.
