  1. Neither the Lames (especially Tkachuk) or Marchand won it, so all in all, not a bad year despite the present state of the Oilers.
  2. Any chance that Moritz Seider, big right-handed German dman, is still available come the second round?
  3. Well, let's see how it plays out ... https://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/future-hold-jesse-puljujarvi-edmonton-oilers/
  4. Maybe's a precursor to a Sekera or Russell move? Just speculating ...

  6. Out of curiosity, where are you hearing this from?
  7. Everyone, that's enough. Stick to what you perceive as the merits (or lack thereof) of Tippett being our new head coach.
  8. Another Rieder-type dart throw? https://www.tsn.ca/report-edmonton-oilers-have-an-eye-on-german-forward-frederik-tiffels-1.1312265
  9. The other side of the coin, for the sake of argument, is that some star players (e.g. Modano) have enjoyed career years under him. And other years, he squeezed more water out of rock rosters than could reasonably be expected. I'm of the mind of giving it a real chance.
  10. The key is to find a balance on the roster. Go overboard with skill at the expense of size and grit, and we go right back to where we were before the Connor draft and we were desperate to sign a guy like Lucic, and therefore jumped all in when he was available. And even if we can make the playoffs with that kind of roster, look what happened to TB in the first round ... Guys who are combine size, skating speeding and skill are worth their weight in gold and then some in today's NHL. That's a large reason why I'm just not ready to give up on JP. I'm really crossing my fingers he figures it out.
  11. The thread title over at the HfBoards ... "When a Coach Comes Along, You Must Tippett"

  14. I just don't want Marchand to get another one. Go Blues!
