Edmonton Oilers: Rotten to the core

As we approach the 2014-15 NHL All-Star break, it’s safe to say that this edition of the Edmonton Oilers is the worst of all-time. That’s not an exaggeration. They’re 45 games into the campaign. The team is on pace for just 18 or 19 wins. That’s a comfortable six back of Edmonton’s all-time low of […] The post Edmonton Oilers: Rotten to the core appeared first on Along the Boards.

Edmonton Oilers and Arrogance: Why Mact Must Go

Arrogance: Why MacT needs to go By: Darrick Cheuk Has Todd Nelson improved the team since taking over? It certainly appears so, but its entirely too early to tell. However, one thing has changed under Nelson, practice. Who would have guessed, that a higher tempo during practice would yield better results on gameday. For years I brushed off the comments from outgoing players concerning...

Oilers Acquire A Magic Bean For Perron

Earlier this week, the Edmonton Oilers moved out disgruntled winger David Perron. It seems that Perron was unhappy with losing so many games, and didn’t like the efforts of some of his teammates (I can’t imagine why). Naturally, the Oilers can’t have competitive players who want to do idiotic things like win hockey games, or […] The post Oilers Acquire A Magic Bean For Perron...

Dissecting the Tweet – Perron Says Goodbye to Edmonton

By: Meesh Shanmugam General Manager Jim Rutherford and the Penguins made quite a splash this morning by acquiring David Perron from Edmonton for a 1st round pick in 2015 and Rob Klinkhammer. My thoughts on the trade are pretty simple – the Penguins are CERTAINLY a better team now and all they gave up was an UNCERTAIN draft pick (and Klinkhammer). With the primes of Malkin and Crosby...

Pens acquire David Perron from Oilers for 2015 first-rounder

Nail Yakupov comments on trade rumors and the sad state of the Oilers

Nail Yakupov recently gave an interview over on regarding trade rumors and the sorry state of the Edmonton Oilers. The interview was translated over on The Hockey Writers, and though the interpretation isn’t perfect, it reveals Yakupov’s opinion on his team’s disappointing 2014-15. Again, the translation isn’t great, but the sentiment remains the same. When...

The obligatory Taylor Hall post

After the Edmonton Oilers fired Dallas Eakins, club GM Craig MacTavish said that no one is untouchable on the Oilers. Immediately, rumors started to fly that Taylor Hall was on the block, as the return he could net would bring in many valuable assets that would fill multiple holes.

This Oilers trade proposal from Damien Cox is ridiculous

Taylor Hall is (inexplicably) on the trade block right now as the Edmonton Oilers prepare to blow their franchise up everywhere but where they should, which is the front office. Of course, when hockey fans hear that one of the game’s best forwards might be trade bait, they salivate and throw around proposals that they hope their teams will pull off for a little more scoring punch...

NHL Trade Speculation: Oilers’ Taylor Hall Enters Rumor Mill

The No. 2 pick in the 2010 NHL draft, Tyler Seguin, already has been traded by the team that selected him. Could the top pick from that draft be on the move, too? TSN’s Darren Dreger speculated Monday that Edmonton Oilers superstar Taylor Hall, the team’s best player and a top-five left winger in the league, could be “in play” before the trade deadline or around the 2015...

This comes from a new report from Darren Dreger who believes the Oilers are ready to deal the talented young forward. Dreger said he believes Taylor Hall will be shopped/discussed.

Oilers fire coach, GM MacTavish takes over again

As a fan of the Edmonton Oilers, I know this team as more problems then just coaching. having said this, I am glad Dallas Eakins was fired today. He came to this team with a lot of fanfare about how he can get his players working at their highest level. Yet, the team's performance is at an all-time low.
