    Thread unlocked. Please everybody try a tad harder to be civil lol!
  3. Hey Bronc, you gotta admit this guy is trolling. He has about 15 posts and 90% are directed at me. He offers no insights on the team and I’ll bet that will continue

    Well it looks like two warnings just didn't cut it. I'm going to lock this thread for one day, and I really hope when everybody comes back to it we see a lot more respect. Thanks.

    Everybody: SuperDave asked you to be civil, remember that we do not permit personal attacks on this board, we've now removed several posts that are against this forums rules and we really don't want to keep doing it. It's a family board and we would appreciate everybody treating it as such even when we disagree. Please let's keep things reasonable so we don't have to lock this topic up. Thanks!

    All NHL teams get into bidding wars for a variety of reasons, including lack of confidence in a goaltender OR the current backup, which could very well be the case here. Yup, avoiding a potential bidding war could also be an explanation. Very plausible as well, I could definitely see that happening. PC is known for jumping the gun like that before any type of sober second thought. Like I said above, they could have had zero faith in a backup and decided to overpay to get one that they felt comfortable with if Talbot craps the bed again this year. BTW I think you are right in not being fully comfortable with this move. I'm sure many are uneasy with it, I'm one of them.

    It's pretty tough to prove that there was a bidding war, but it's definitely not out of the question either. He's a highly touted goaltender with good numbers, I definitely would not rule out a bidding war. Or even a "I'm taking offers, highest wins" type of a scenario.

    Gryba versus Benning

    MacIntyre might vie for that title

    RIP Vaclav Burda

    Thought this was probably the best place to put this, I will move it in a few days. Edmonton Oilers Director of European Scouting Vaclav Burda has been killed in a car crash in the Czech Republic. https://edmontonjournal.com/sports/hockey/nhl/cult-of-hockey/edmonton-oilers-chief-euro-scout-vaclav-burda-has-died-in-car-crash-reports-complete-hockey?utm_term=Autofeed&utm_campaign=Echobox&utm_medium=Social&utm_source=Twitter#Echobox=1531848056

    Trade proposals?

    With the Canes aquiring De Haan, I'm wondering if that doesn't spell a Faulk trade coming soon... wonder if some sort of deal couldn't be made for him like RNH. But try Lucic first lol

    Neon Leon, Dr Drai, The Deutschland Dangler

    I think we will be fine enough for cap space. there will be wiggle room.

    Ryan Strome etc.

    34 points, and you were bang on with the 15 minutes a night. Strome scores at a rate of almost half a point per game while playing 3/4 of a period average per night. Frankly he's one of our best "bargain" contracts. Compared to our second center Draisaitl: Drai averages 1 point every 21.1 minutes of playing time, at 8.5 million per season Strome averages 1 point every 36.5 minutes of playing time at 2.5 million per season Looks to me like Strome's contributions are pretty darn fine.

    Lucic signs with Edmonton

    this is so true. Many Oiler fans should be fixing themselves before complaining about what needs to be fixed with the team. This isn't to say all Oilers fans are bad because it simply isn't true. Most are great loyal fans, but the bad ones are.... really bad.
