    Ya know, defence (and maybe an NHL trade deadline deal) wins championships

    Oscar Klefbom is leading the NHL in average time-on-ice and looking more and more like a true No. 1 defenceman, while Ethan Bear has been the surprise of the season on the blue line and has fit right in among the Oilers’ top-four blue-liners.

    What to make of Taylor Hall-to-Oilers trade rumours

    What to make of Taylor Hall-to-Oilers trade rumours

    The rumour has been persistent since early in this NHL season, that Taylor Hall — former Edmonton Oilers star — would welcome a trade away from the New Jersey Devils, who have faltered on the ice thus far. And his rumoured preferred destination? The Oilers.

    Host Craig Ellingson talks to hockey beat writer Derek Van Diest about the rumours and what a Taylor Hall trade to Edmonton would mean for the team.

    Oilers turn focus to Western rivals

    Oilers turn focus to Western rivals

    After playing Eastern Conference teams for more than half of their games through the first third of November, the Edmonton Oilers will face their fellow Western NHL squads exclusively for 10 straight games through the start of December.

    The stretch includes six road games and seven clashes with their Pacific Division siblings. What it could mean is we’ll see some separation from the pack by the Oilers or find Edmonton jostling with their rivals to stay in the playoff mix.

    What to make of the Oilers' blip

    What to make of the Oilers' blip

    Win some, lose some. Recent games are suggesting the Connor McDavid- and Leon Draisaitl-led Edmonton Oilers are human after all.

    After a torrid start to the 2019-20 NHL campaign, the Oilers have lost games they probably should have been in on — and have won games they likely should have lost.

    Considering the team is still getting very good goaltending and scoring from its stars, however, there is reason to believe these aren't last season's Oilers, which saw things go sideways come mid-December.

    Oilers' bottom-six shooters firing blanks

    Oilers' bottom-six shooters firing blanks

    The Edmonton Oilers' so-called 'bottom six' forwards have yet to score a goal — and most have yet to notch even an assist — almost a month into the 2019-20 NHL season. Hockey beat writers Jim Matheson and Rob Tychkowski talk to host Craig Ellingson about the team's secondary-scoring woes.

    McDavid and Draisaitl can’t do it all for the Oilers

    McDavid and Draisaitl can’t do it all for the Oilers

    The Edmonton Oilers are flying high to start the 2019-20 NHL season, but even teams that touch the top of the standings can see their star players fall off a bit as seen in recent games.

    Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl didn’t crowd the scoresheet in a win over Detroit and in a shutout shootout loss to the Jets, which once again underscores the need for the Oilers to conjure goals from their secondary lines.

Good content. Too short and infrequent

Dull

Guys, find away to eliminate the “y’know’s” after every pause between words. You guys beat aroubd the bush and use blanket opinions most of the time. It felt like I was sitting in a bar with my friends 3/4 sliced and nothing is making sense. The only difference would be that bar would have the same policy as a library and we’d all be whispering.

Not bad

Not a lot of enthusiasm but good content.
