  1. Slepy out

    I had him auditioning for the top line on a "every third shift" basis. I know people will laugh but he's got the makings to be a great winger for either of the top two lines, even more-so with McDavid. He's big, fast, gritty, has a great shot and goes to the hard areas. He's also very good on the backcheck. Him with McD and Maroon would be terrific. I think Strome is the obvious guy to try there to start since he's a bit more of a finesse guy but he does have grit too and is more of a "veteran" even though he hasn't fully established himself yet. I wouldn't put Strome a lot higher than Sleppy on my depth chart though.
  2. Why Oilers messed up Puljujärvi?

    Not sure if you're trolling here and I'm pretty experienced with that variety of creature. So how are we so bad when we all know that we actually beat the Ducks in 5 games but the refs gave them the series? Seriously, you're looking at a team that should have been in the conference final but got robbed by politics. Now we're better. Please tell me why our wingers are so poor and our D is questionable. Also if you could reply with some actual numbers that would be appreciated.
  3. Why Oilers messed up Puljujärvi?

    That Leon Draisaitl got pretty messed up the way we handled him too. Damn shame we did the exact same thing with PJ.
  4. What a crappy thread.
  5. Why we should keep Ebs

    Kovy is a nice to have. Not sure the dollars would makes sense though. That's my biggest concern with him. Plus his knees are going so it could be a good contract to avoid IMO.

    Biggest game in over a decade. Seems I've been saying that a lot lately. The boys have to play like they did last game. Ducks will be coming out with everything and trying to get away with everything. I really hope they call it like last game.
  7. GDT: RD 2 - GM 1 Oilers @ Ducks 8:30 PM, Wed, Apr 26.17

    That's pretty much the Ducks though. They are very heavily penalized for this reason and have been for a while. From what I saw last night, their forwards really cannot keep up to our forecheck and their D back off a bit. If we keep skating they will continue to take lots of penalties. The Ducks on the rush are very deceptive though. Their D is exceptionally mobile. Montour was flying last night.
  8. Welcome to the team Adam Larsson!

    Man, what a game by Larsson last night. Two great goals and great in his own end. Just a great addition. Love this guy more and more each game.
  9. Slepyshev

    I agree 100%. I think he will be kind of like Kreider once he's full time.
  10. Oilers Acquire Desharnais for Davidson

    Nice to see that line do some good stuff. DD had a very good game last game. Hopefully more to come.
  11. Why Orange?

    It was mentioned that we will most likely get both. Pretty huge considering where we've been the last ten years.
  12. They'll come. I don't know if it will in a series like this. I think they wanted the responsible play and heaviness with the ability to finish if set up. He had a few chances but nothing terrific in terms of quality. I still liked the line.
  13. They really played well together I thought. Could be the start of something good. I also liked how it made it harder for SJ to line match. I still am not comfy with that DD line but he was better on the wing I thought. Still, they had a solid game I thought. I love Slepyshev on McDavid's line. I've been wanting to see that all year and it made it a heavier line with good skill on it still. Slepy has one of the hardest shots on the team. That's a combo I really liked. Benning and Nurse were matched against the top line by SJ most of the game and did terrific. Man, that was really a perfect game by the boys. Agreed Fogs. I thought it was a much more balanced line that they couldn't key in on to shut down one. Slepyshev is so under-appreciated IMO. He's gonna be a big player for us for lots of years I think.
  14. For sure. Don't want to play with fire though. He's not really a factor but it's a temptation once he gets going and agitating.
  15. Reinhart Recalled

    For sure. Gryba is steady and a really good 7 guy IMO. Plays to his size and intimidates.
