Posted
The 30th place Buffalo Sabres did the Oilers a favour last night defeating the Calgary Flames 2-1 in overtime.

Monday Musings
Posted
Good afternoon OilersNation. I’m back and refreshed from a wonderful vacation in Maui. Outside of a Ballistic Missile warning, which for a brief moment added a bit of stress, it was an incredible vacation. If you ever get a chance to go I highly recommend staying in Kihei. The beaches are f...

Oil Kings continue to show promise
Posted
For the Oil Kings, their recent five-game road swing was really a microcosm of their season thus far. They kicked things off with a pair of overtime wins over two good teams in Regina and Brandon but simply didn’t have the horses to compete with the likes of Moose Jaw and Swift Current, both of...

Weekend Update January 21st, 2018
Posted
The week that was with the Oilers system was a good one. Nugent-Hopkins’ injury has made way for Iiro Pakarinen to return to the NHL. I’m wondering if Oilers fans will have to start a JetsNationesque #FreeRattie for him to get a call to the big show and have his chance. In the WHL, Ka...

Three Thoughts: Coffey Time
Posted
Anytime the Edmonton Oilers make or even contemplate a hire that involves bringing back a former player, aka dipping into the Old Boys Club, there should be a healthy dose of skepticism.
