NHL Twilight Zone – Chapter 1: Taylor v. Tyler Relived

With the NHL season just around the corner, myself and photography editor Antony Ta decided it would be a great concept to write a couple preview articles on the upcoming NHL season. However, they are not any ordinary preview articles: these previews are going to be based around the hypothetical. A twilight zone, if you will, of the NHL. Today, we will be looking at the Taylor … Continue reading NHL Twilight Zone – Chapter 1: Taylor v. Tyler Relived

Oilers Fans Will Likely Have to Wait at Least Another Year | By Adam Woods

No one can say that Oilers General Manager Craig MacTavish hasn’t tried his best during this off-season to fill many of the holes in a ship that has already reached the bottom of the ocean. Unfortunately, it is difficult to attract players to a team with a terrible record located in the arctic tundra. Why play in cold and snowy Edmonton with a terrible team … Continue reading Oilers Fans Will Likely Have to Wait at Least Another Year | By Adam Woods

Gone But Never Forgotten: David Adomako-Ansah, Dunk On Disease & Pride of the Northside. The Legacy Lives On! | By Louis Nguyen

I still remember the first time I met David Adomako-Ansah, because it feels like we met yesterday. It was at a house party with my friend Opi Rai’s place. I always saw David around prior to talking to him, but we unfortunately never had a chance to have a conversation. My first impression of David was that he was such a nice, loving and gentle … Continue reading Gone But Never Forgotten: David Adomako-Ansah, Dunk On Disease & Pride of the Northside.

Lip Service | By Scott Tougas

Following the Kevin Lowe press conference debacle, it’s been a pretty good off-season for the Edmonton Oilers. Craig MacTavish, widely hailed within city limits as a smart hockey man, has done the media circuit and said the right things. He talks of bold change, wilfully ignoring that calls for change are coming from a different iteration of the same management team. Of note, MacTavish spoke … Continue reading Lip Service | By Scott Tougas

They did this after firing former Head Coach Ralph Krueger over the weekend.

Prospects’ Season Begins with a Dud | The Wanderer Sports

In 2012, the Edmonton Prospects baseball team, which brings together collegiate players from across North America for a season of summer baseball, won just six games. SIX GAMES. Six wins, and countless losses. As 2012 played out, the team’s entire pitching staff was decimated, the coaching issues made their way into the news, and the Prospects were swept into the Western Major Baseball League abyss. … Continue reading Prospects’ Season Begins with a Dud | The Wanderer Sports
