The best team in the NHL. Much better than their southern counterparts, the Calgary Flames
. Loses players such as Pronger because said player can't control his hormones. Won 5 Stanley Cups and had a very successful 05/06 playoff run.
Person 1: I'm going to go see the Edmonton Oilers game this weekend
Person 2: That's awesome! We're going to kick the Flamers collective asses!
the former home of gretzky and a very good franchise; they won 5 (i believe) cups during the '80s with gretzky and messier; have been good recently, but missed the playoffs this year
The Oilers have good, rowdy fans.
1 of the NHL's great franchises that is making an incredible playoff run as '04 ends (despite sucking for most of the year)
The Oilers were awesome w/ Gretsky
The best comeback team of 2006 to make it to the stanley cup. Also had the most entertaining games I had ever seen.
YAY OILERS!!!! :)
2006 SEASON - EDMONTON OILERS
-Being the last team in the western conference to make it to the playoffs.
-Eliminating the #1 ranked team in all of the nhl in the first round.
-Losing in a series 3-0 and then coming back to defeat the same team 4-3 to advance to the stanley cup finals. Then finishing the second round of the playoffs in victory over San Jose in the last min. of the third overtime.
-Winning the series against anaheim 4-0. Not to mention they were facing the #1 ranked goalie besides their really good goalie, Roloson.
The best hockey team EVER. They kicked ass in the 2006 playoffs, and would have won the cup if the jackass on carolina didn't hurt rolli the goalie.
The edmonton oilers are loved by alllll!
the team with the most passion while playing, have the most passionate fans, the best ice, 5 stanley cups, wayne gretsky, mark messier, ryan smyth, the best team ever, better than calgary, and is in the best city in the world!!!!!!!!!!!
who is the best team in the nhl?
THE EDMONTON OILERS!!!!!
Stanley Cup finalists in the 2006 playoffs, failures in the next season. It's the early 1990s all over again. It must be right time to fire the head coach MacTavish and the GM Lowe now.
After they traded Chris Pronger to the Anaheim (Mighty) Ducks in the off-season and Ryan Smyth to the NY Islanders in the NHL 2006/07 season trade deadline. The Edmonton Oilers were are in a slump while the Ducks (the team the Oilers eliminated in the 2006 playoffs Western Conference finals) went straight to the Cup.
It's a sad time to be an Oilers fan.
