    2018/2019 Oilers Fantasy League is up!

    Honestly, I'm pulling for Steve here, I've won a couple times now and I'd like to see another first time champion. With that being said, I'm not leaving anything on the table, you're going to have to earn it Steve. Should be a good match up here, best if luck!

    Missed the game, but when your top guys are all -tive, you know how the game was lost. Too many guys playing for their career highs in goals, assists and points right now.

    Who should be the next GM?

    Very true - and that Ken Holland thing that Bill mentioned also sounds very feasible. You know - this is really like Deja Vu for me. It really is. When the Jets entered the NHL, then Jets GM John Ferguson was all about building a 'big tough' roster. He figured that was the #1 priority over talent. It eventually got him fired meantime we had a team west of us that took our old blue print (fast, talented team) and they ended up winning 5 Stanley Cups with it. When PC took over, what did he do, why was he hired? We (Hall, Ebs, RNH) were being pushed around, and though we had hired goons like Gazdic and MacIntyre, they weren't good enough to play more than 6 minutes a night so teams weren't really scared. So PC was hired with the promise of building a 'big heavy team to compete in the Pacific' - only thing was everyone else was getting away from that. I keep thinking it's me lol - I'm the curse. I know it's just circumstance but it sure feels like that. I'm actually not against the Ken Holland / KG combo (if in fact that comes to fruition) so long as they are forward thinking and build the team to where the NHL is going, and not where it's been. But you know everything is cyclical. So we're back to a speed game, which means in about 5 years or so we'll have a 'trap' team that comes out of nowhere to win the Cup and voila, back to the 'trap era' and then the 'big' era to combat the trap. Will we always be behind? Guess we'll see.

    Recorded and then watched the game later so no live comments from me. Looking at this game, the Oilers battled back after a crazy Vegas start, and I give the boyz credit for that. Let's face it, Vegas is a tough squad that plays at a high tempo and deserved a win but our guys played hard. Ripped off on that goalie interference call but V was winning this one anyways. I was impressed w Cave and Currie's speed out there; I thoguht they matched up well w Vegas pressure and speed and their futures w the big club are looking pretty good at this point. That is a plus for us.

    The days of putting a bandage on this team is over.They require major surgery and anything less is a bandage.

    Team Connor vs. Team Auston. Guess I'm the Leafs eh? Boo! Hiss! lol Steve, I thought I was dead in the water the first few days. Even then, I was nervous all the way till the end of the Oilers game tonight ... You're always a tough one for me to beat when I do.

    Thanks, Happy. Didn't mean much though, did it! This league had razor thin margins all year; 31 points between 1st and 8th, I don't think its ever been that close. Good job Steve, 1 point above the relegation round, and now in the final. Will Steve get his first title, or will Rekkin be the first to successfully defend one?

    Mathematically we're still in the hunt for a wildcard. Mathematically I have a chance at hitting the Powerball too. I'd say the odds of both are about the same.

    No ... I can see we're stuck with this crap for 3 more years ..... .or more, if in those 3 more years the same type of team building and finding of talented goalies/defenders/wingers continues.
