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.

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...
