Bolland will certainly be on MacT's radar

With the 2014 UFA market set to open in roughly three and a half weeks, Edmonton Oilers general manager Craig MacTavish is likely in the midst of putting together what has to be a rather lengthy shopping list. Unfortunately for him, this year’s crop of free agents is arguably the weakest we have seen in some time and his roster still needs more than a little tweaking.

Time to be bold!!!

With the NHL Entry Draft roughly three weeks away, fans of the Edmonton Oilers appear to be split on who the club should grab with the third overall selection. In a perfect world they would love to have Aaron Ekblad fall into their lap but the chances of the Barrie Colts defenceman still being around appear to be slim and none. 

Spending Wisely

There has always been a certain amount of sexiness that comes with trying to go out and acquire players via unrestricted free agency in the National Hockey League. Unfortunately, when it comes to the 2014 free agent crop there really isn’t a whole hell of a lot to get excited about

Tread very carefully Mr. MacTavish

It is no secret that Edmonton Oilers general manager Craig MacTavish was devastated by David Clarkson’s decision to sign with the Toronto Maple Leafs last summer. Instead of taking up Edmonton on their obscene 7 year/$42 million offer, the former New Jersey Devil decided to take a little bit less to play in his hometown.
