New York Islanders Trust Youth Players Not Free Agents

The New York Islanders addition of Jordan Eberle may prove vital in the scoring department in the 2017-2018 season. The Isles only hole remaining is a second line center, but it is not as gaping as you may think.

Edmonton Oilers: No Hamonic, No Problem

The Edmonton Oilers made a long-anticipated trade with the Islanders this past week. However, it wasn’t the deal that many thought they would see.

Oilers Hand Strome New Lease on Life

In the six years that have passed since the New York Islanders used the fifth overall pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft to select Ryan Strome, the Mississauga native has yet to live up to expectation.  However, after being sent to the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for veteran forward Jordan Eberle, the soon-to-be 24-year […]

The expansion draft is over and the first trade of the off-season has been completed for the Edmonton Oilers.

Ryan Strome – The Newest Edmonton Oiler

Yesterday, Peter Chiarelli pulled the trigger on his first deal of the off-season when he sent Jordan Eberle to the New York Islanders in exchange for Ryan Strome. On the face of it, I do not like the deal. It is my belief that the Oilers got the second best player in this trade and […] The post Ryan Strome – The Newest Edmonton Oiler appeared first on The Oilers Rig.
