Yeah, and people don’t like to see fighting anymore right…
Continuing on with my series of posts that break down the Oiler’s different areas, today we look at the defense.
This will be the problem area for your 2012/13 Edmonton Oilers folks (actually, just 2013 Edmonton Oilers, but still). We might see some issues with the goaltending (but that’s for another post), but really I think any issues the Oilers have not only this year but going forward sit on this group.

Big year coming?
Well shit…I suppose I should get this done and out there.
Again, much like I did last year, I am going to do a series of posts discussing the team and how I think they will do in the coming year. Reading musts is Lowetide and his breakdown of each player, and big props to Behind the Net and Capgeek for all of my stats/salary info.

Sinclair making Solo her bitch
Despite what anyone may think, we are indeed still alive and kicking in this little corner of the internerd. Unfortunately, it is the worst part of the year for hockey so there really isn’t much to say.
That said, there have been a couple items that popped up lately, so lets give them a little looksie and banter pointlessly about them in order to occupy ourselves until something real happens.
Hall and Eberle Extensions
Apparently the Oilers are looking into extending both Hall and Eberle to extensions in the near future (Omark also hasn’t signed his QO, but that’s a footnote). There was some discussion of Kane/Toews, Skinner and Tavares as comparables. Basically anywhere from 5.5 to 6.5 per, over 5-6 years.
