    Nice read.Although I'm a little lost on the opening line "One of the more unexpected moves of Peter Chiarelli’s busy summer occurred in early July when the new Oilers GM went goalie-shopping..." I think goalie shopping was one of the more EXPECTED moves IMO. Even after the acquisition of Talbot. I think they just meant it was an off the radar acquisition. Had everything to do with player. Nothing to do with position.
  4. I know I won't be purchasing any jerseys with advertisement's
  5. Why is the omb so dead? Hockey is right around the corner!

  6. this really has nothing to do with your lineup specifically but I just can't stand the idea of Taylor Hall of any of the other "core" still getting sheltered minutes and I don't believe for a minute that McDavid won't get sheltered minutes so by default anyone playing with him will also get sheltered minutes. I really don't think they will shelter mcD as much as they did with the previous #1's, who knows, 25 games in he very well could have earned his way to the top line.
  7. Correct sir I'm looking for brinco37
  8. Pouliot - RNH - Eberle Hall - McDavid - Purcell Hendricks - Lander - Yakupov Klinkhammer - Letestu - Korpikoski Klefbom - Sekera Fayne - Schultz Nikitin - Ference/Gryba Talbot Scrivens

    Watched a replay of Sweden vs Russia from the 2015 world's quarter finals, Nilsson came in to replace Jonas Enroth after Russia scored 3 unanswered. He did well against a STACKED Russian team with the likes of ovechkin, tarasenko, Malkin ect., the swedes rallied back to tie it 3-3 in the 3rd but then fell behind 4-3 on a very lucky deflection off of Ekman-Larsson's skate. I'm not sure what nilsson's final numbers for the game except for the 1 goal against.
  11. Out of the selection provided I'd have to go with Justin Schultz, but someone else I'd also consider is Anton lander.
  12. Just let Ference keep it, he's our interim captain for 2 more seasons. Then if mcdavid does what everyone thinks he's going to do, I'll be leaning towards giving him the c around that point.
  13. Phoenix will win. The NHL needs him there.
  14. With the deadline a week away, who are the oilers going to trade/trade for?
  15. Total organizational ineptitude.
  16. I'm watching the game on tv Ya boy
  17. Apparently the game is on channel 351 on shaw cable in edmonton. But who knows, it's worth a try.. https://community.shaw.ca/docs/DOC-2261
  18. hmm maybe I'll just have to go to a game, although from what I could hear from the live stream on Sunday, the music didn't really sound off or anything.
