MacT needs to make this summer count

With the 2014 NHL Entry Draft mere hours away from taking place, fans of the Edmonton Oilers are firmly focused on who their favourite team will ultimately select with the third overall pick.  Be it Aaron Ekblad, Leon Draisaitl, Sam Bennett or Sam Reinhart none of these kids will play a major role in helping the Oilers improve in 2014-15.

Time to start winning games on home ice!!!

Over this past weekend, the National Hockey League released their 2014-15 regular season schedule. The Edmonton Oilers started their 2013-14 campaign playing seven of their first ten on the road and some felt that played a large role in this team getting off to the start they did. Unfortunately for them, that wasn’t the case at all, as it was actually the Oilers lack of early success in their home rink that ultimately put them behind the eight-ball.

Patience level at an all-time low for Oiler fans

With the 2014 NHL Entry Draft now less than a week away, the Edmonton Oilers have once again become relevant in hockey circles. Unfortunately for them, the only time this happens is leading up to draft day and it is a scenario this fan base has truly grown tired of.
