OILERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Battle For The Pacific Division: The Edmonton Oilers

As the summer drags on I thought I’d take the time to take a look at the other teams that make up the Pacific Division, what they did and where I think they could end up when its all said and done.  This time I will look at a team who has seemed to make all the right moves this summer on what still may be a long road to returning to playoff contention. Who’s in: F – Lauri...

Ducks go big with Kesler extension; Oilers do the right thing with Schultz

The Anaheim Ducks have locked up forward Ryan Kesler to a huge six-year $41.25 million deal. The agreement, which will begin starting 2016-17, will prevent the Michigan native from hitting the free agent market as he was scheduled to do after next season. The move is a lot of money ($6.875 million until 2021-22) for a player coming off of a 20-goal season and is already 30 years...

WATCH: Connor McDavid turns heads in Oilers scrimmage

Sure, it was a scrimmage that featured 4-on-4 and 3-on-3 competition, but if this is what we can expect going forward, it’s going to be a lot of fun in Edmonton this season. The fans are already buying...

Spector: A Cam Talbot trade may require a defenseman

Mark Spector of Sportsnet is speculating that the Edmonton Oilers are not going to give the Rangers the #16 pick unless a defenseman is included in the trade. This seems to make sense, since the Oilers need a defenseman as well and the Rangers need to shed an additional contract from the blue line. My guess […]
