Edmonton Oilers 2024 Stanley Cup Odds

The Edmonton Oilers barely got past the Vancouver Canucks in the second round. Edmonton was forced to rally and win the final two games, including a decisive 7th game at Vancouver 3-2. Now the Oilers face the Dallas Stars, who eliminated the Colorado Avalanche in six games. At first glance, Dallas seems to have the goaltending edge with Jake Oettinger over Edmonton’s Stuart Skinner. But Skinner did stand firm in Edmonton’s final two wins over the Canucks. And Edmonton does boast the best player on the ice, Connor McDavid. By contrast, the Stars are a deep team and well-structured.

Edmonton Oilers History

The Oilers were born as a member of the World Hockey Association in 1972. They are best remembered for putting one of the greatest teams in NHL history on the ice in the 1980s. Edmonton won five Stanley Cups from 1984 through 1990. Those teams lit up the marquee with stars such as Paul Coffey, Wayne Gretzky, Jari Kurri, and Mark Messier.

When Gretzky was traded to the Los Angeles Kings in 1988, Canada mourned and burned then-owner Peter Pocklington in effigy. But in 1990, the remaining players rallied to win the franchise’s fifth and final Stanley Cup.

Following that last Stanley Cup, the Oilers suffered the same fate as other Canadian teams in the 1990s. The Canadian dollar was weak then, and there was no salary cap. But in 2006, the NHL was coming out of a lockout and lost season. The league was able to win a hard salary cap. Edmonton quickly took advantage and made the Stanley Cup final, losing to the Carolina Hurricanes in a thrilling series.

In 2015 the Oilers drafted a transformational player, Connor McDavid, first overall in the NHL Draft. McDavid was the spark that the franchise needed. But with his arrival came expectations that were over the top and perhaps unrealistic. McDavid’s arrival was the asset that sparked the creation of the Oilers' new arena that rates among the best in the world.

Additionally, the passionate Edmonton fan base has a level of faith that has been lacking since the days of Gretzky and Messier. And with the strong finish to the 2021-22 season, the Oilers are finally reaching their potential.
