Edmonton Oilers: The battle of Darnell Nurse vs. Oscar Klefbom

Hello all,

It’s been a while since I’ve blogged for my audience here at Oil on Whyte. I do apologize but it’s one of those things where sometimes life gets in the way and you get a mental block.

Now I’m back and let’s talk some Oilers, shall we?

We all knew that when Dave Tippett took over as head coach this season, that there’d be changes. I mean, the Oilers finished 2nd last in the West last season and 7th worst in the league. That’s crying out for something different.

A lot of personnel – especially in the bottom 6 forwards – were changed up by new GM Ken Holland.
