Dean Lombardi Is Undoubtedly Happy that his Draft Pick Stuck Up for a Teammate and Fought an Overager, Despite the Fact that He Got Pummeled and Earned 30 Stitches on His Face for the Honor

This is a couple months old, but I just found it. Drew Nichol vs Geordie Wudrick This was what everybody was talking about on Sunday – the licking that Oil Kings defencemen Drew Nichol gave Swift Current forward Geordie Wudrick (LA) on Saturday night. As the story goes, Nichol hammered another Broncos player and Wudrick,…

Oilers shine in wide-open game, but don’t get win (player grades, Columbus 3, Oilers, 2) – Cult of Hockey

Patrick O’Sullivan, [player grade:] 6. He is the Roberto Duran of the Oilers. If you don’t understand the reference, search “Manos de Piedra” in Google. It’s not a compliment for a hockey goal scorer. I’m starting to think that O’Sullivan’s low shooting percentage over his career isn’t a fluke, isn’t just bad luck. Yet in…

Star Phoenix: Eberle cooks on and off the ice

    I was originally just going to post the bit in this article about Teubert, but, truly, this is one of the best player interviews I have ever read. I now love Jordan Eberle, who will be tearing it up for the Oilers in a couple of years. My favorite bits and the Teuert…

Tavares-Moulson connection? All chemistry

Maybe it’s that old sports cliche, chemistry, that explains the immediate collaborative efficiency between celebrated Islanders rookie John Tavares and free-agent discovery Matt Moulson.

From the Monarchs website: Russian Rookie Turning Heads

Do you remember what you were doing on May 30, 1990?  While Madonna’s Vogue was topping the charts on the radio, the Springfield Indians were battling the Rochester Americans for the Calder Cup, and Edmonton was fighting to get past Boston to hoist the Stanley Cup, and Andrei Loktionov was born on that date in Voskresensk,…

Nikolai Khabibulin’s Costly Turnover — NHL FanHouse

Goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin made his debut in Edmonton on Saturday night, and it couldn’t have gone any worse for the veteran netminder. Just seconds after Oilers forward Patrick O’Sullivan missed the net on a wide open shot at the opposite end of the ice, Khabibulin came out of his crease to play a loose puck,…

Obviously

Smyth, who was traded to the Kings from the Colorado Avalanche in July, likes what he has seen from his new team thus far. “I think what makes it is the guys here,” Smyth said. “The young guys, they make the locker room feel comfortable. Obviously, the older guys are here which is great but…
