#2596607 Oilers win the Draft Lottery

Posted by aflac9262 on 19 April 2015 - 01:05 PM

What a sad tradition the Oilers have forged. I could not help but laugh when I heard the news. I really believe the NHL needs to reform its draft policy because as it stands it hurts the integrity of the game. Franchises like Edmonton should not be rewarded year after year for their explicit mismanagement and failure.

Sorry to sy it, but Z is done. Fini. As for Mr. holland. Look at what Stevie has done in 5 short years. His team is big and fast. Your team is small and slow. They have very little skill in comparison. His team is focused with lots of skill. Very well coached I might add. They play with intelligence. Your team, Mr.Holland, is just the opposite.

 

Stevie also i inherited the likes of Stamkos and Hedman. Put Stamkos out there not 100% and they fizzle out of the playoffs like they did last year. 




#2596583 J Ericsson - really?

Posted by WingsallTheway on 19 April 2015 - 11:31 AM

You don't look at points to see how terrible Ericsson is. You just watch him for a game, on any given night.

 

You can argue that he looks bad because hes on the top pairing getting exposed, but that explains that hes just a bad defenceman. "shut down" Dmen are supposed to shut down guys. He doesnt do that, or bring offence. 

 

He actually destroys all offence. Whenever we cycle in the O-zone, he just throws it on goal the second it touches his stick. Other team gets possesion, puck goes the other way.

It's funny to me that Ericsson gets killed every mistake he makes but dekeyser who makes plenty of mistakes gets a free pass


They are in different stages of their careers. Ericsson should be in the veteran phase whereas Dekeyser is still learning the game. They say it takes 3-4 seasons to know what you have with NHL defensemen. I think we know what we have with Ericsson now.

Strange thing is he was pretty good when he was younger. Than just dropped off or something. Or other teams gang up our D because, with the exception of a few, none of them seem to handle pressure well

Do you recall who his d partners were? Lindstrom and Rafalski

I don't recall this Lindstrom guy, but Ericsson didn't play with Rafalski. He was generally on the 3rd pair. Lidstrom-Rafalski, Kronwall-Stuart, Ericsson-XXXX

Weiss for Ovechkin and then trade Marchenko and franzen for Weber. That's basically how this thread sounds.

I can't believe this is a real thread

If Abdlekader is back next game, Babcock has to go:

Helm - Datsyuk -Tatar
Nyquist - Zetterberg -Abdlekader
Andersson - Sheahan - Jurco
Miller - Glendenning - Ferraro

Gotta switch up the lines in Game 3, Abby or no Abby. A split is good. Worried about our goal scoring as I have been since January, relying on your PP when your best players are old and small isn't conducive for success. Need some cycle game, some greasy rebounds 5on5 to go in. Oh, and it's gotta be Mrazek in Game 3. Howard looked like a lost puppy in the 3rd.

Babcock postgame: 

 

I liked our compete level, we got more shots on goal, that's something that we talked about.  It's a race to 4, we got one, they got one ... that's hockey.  We'll regroup and head back home and work on a couple more things and be ready to go.

The idea that we should say "No one played good at forward" does not excuse Tatar and Nyquist…That's crazy.

It does however negate your suggestion that they should be the ones benched.




#2593070 No Scoring and No Fighting

Posted by number9 on 13 April 2015 - 10:53 PM

The whole enforcer protecting the team era was in response to the lawlessness on the ice. The rules didn't protect players, so the players did. Now the league has rules to curb this lawlessness, which makes the role of the enforcer semi-obsolete.

 

The enforcer era is not coming back. It's going to move farther and father from that despite whatever protests you (and including myself) have. The sooner one accepts this, the sooner one can move past it.

 

Hockey isn't becoming soccer. Hockey is becoming hockey. Fighting is part of hockey's history, but at the end of the day it's a side-show within the sport. Trust me, that pains me to admit.

 

If you want to watch good fights, do what I do and follow the UFC. Hockey and fighting are going to split. Maybe not tomorrow, maybe not in 10 years from now, but we all know it's going to happen eventually. Enjoy it while we have it. The game is evolving, and it's going to leave us 80's and 90's fans in the dust if we don't evolve with it.

Sure I'll take that concussion or broken bone or some other lifelong debilitating injury so Joe blow can be extremely happy...for 5 seconds.

Speed and defense wins games. If you want to watch goons, watch wrestling.

Ha. I told you it was crazy. It's just a thought.
 
I don't know. Maybe the Kindl thing is a bit off. I'll be the first to say I wanted Marchenko in and the first to say he looked iffy at best.
 
Tatar or Nyquist need to be taught accountability. In my opinion. 


Ahh yes. Because benching our 2 leading goal scorers after one game of the playoffs for not scoring makes a ton of sense. Also, they didn't play a lot on the third because we were short handed for most of it.
