#2596567 Oilers win the Draft Lottery

Posted by wings4thecup06 on Today, 10:29 AM

Bob as always is spot on McDavid is a professionell he won't say it publically but like I said I would not blame him for pulling a Lindros. But man Hall - McDavid - Eberle that's a damn scary line for years to come.


as far as getting McDavid to Detroit forget about it: some serious gutting of the team would be needed we're talking about: firsts, Larkin, Mantha, Danny D. +++ it's not going to happen. Also the Edmonton Oilers - assuming he pulls a Lindros - won't get Kessel and Phaneuf because both have a NMC and I'm sure the Oilers are on that list.


All the Oilers now need to do is bring in some top 4 defenseman with size to guide Klefblom and Nurse and a proven Number 1 goaltender. If they do that we're looking at a sleeping giant in the West, granted Lowe and his palls could still screw this up.


My personal stance: The draft is a damn joke, these are young adults let them decide and si gn wherever they want to instead of forcing them to go to team X because some lottery balls decided that's the way to do it. I mean, did the Patriots a ball telling them to pick Tom Brady NO they've picked him because he wanted to be there and they wanted him.


Then you'd never get anyone wanting to play in Edmonton, or some of the run down franchises, and half the teams in the league would be a joke, and we'd go back to the original 6 days before the draft even existed when the Canadiens would sign all the best young kids and you'd go back to having 2 or 3 dominant teams in the league.

This sucks most for the Coyotes. They drop from 2 to 3 and now miss out on getting one the big 2. But they still have OEL so I don't feel too bad for them.

An OEL hanifin pairing though...

#2596479 J Ericsson - really?

Posted by haroldsnepsts on Yesterday, 10:44 PM

He was good back in the late 00's, but it seems that he plateaued after a few years and has been regressing ever since.  Sucks that it coincided with him signing that long contract....


I don't think he was good and regressed so much as he seemed decent and people projected an improvement in his play that was unrealistic for a converted forward picked last overall in the draft.


If the Wings had a decent blueline, Ericsson would not be on the top pair and he'd look much better.  He should probably be a #4 guy who also plays on the PK.  But he has great size and actually uses it, not as much as I like but he's our most physical defenseman.  He's one of the few guys who can actually clear the crease.  Generally he has a good first pass, especially for a defensive d-man, though this  year his decision making some games has been suspect.


He hasn't been a stabilizing force for the defense like you'd like him to be, but I wouldn't put him at the top of the list of the Wings defensive problems.

I hope you'll have more sympathy after reading this.

Whatever happens these playoffs we need to get bigger for next season f*** ... Any chance bruins would give us lucic in a deal involving Tatar or nyquist? Lol

Sadly we have no one that can come in besides abdelkader to knock guys around and cole who's long gone


That's a joke right?  Lucic is one of the worst possession players in the league for his contract.  Part of the reason they blow is because they gave Looch 6 million a year to be a possession killer.

Yeah Cole still wants to feel like part of the team. He seems like an awesome guy

Everybody knew the Kings had a strong possession game, didn't know they took it that far though.

When Abby gets back, I'd split Z and D. Tatar and Nyquist don't really play well together, I know people like to reference them, but the real kid line was Tatar-Sheahan-Jurco last year.


Outside of line combos, really what we need is two things. 1. Cut back on the dumb penalties. Plain and simple. How do we do that? 2. Take time with the puck, think, make good decisions. Turnovers have been KILLING us for over a month, gotta figure it out. Too often the Wings want to make some prettyf****** play when there up by a goal when just clearing it off the glass and out and getting a change is the right play. This is the playoffs, every single mistake could cost ya. Simplify it.

Yeah great idea.
Put Tatar on the top line where he should be. You know, because of how well he's played in the last month...

I guess it's a bad idea to put your leading goalscorer with your best playmaker.. And they have good chemistry together why wouldn't you put him on the top line lol he'll be there once Abby returns so why am I even having this conversation.

We definitely need to play better but swapping Kindl and Cleary in for Marchenko and Tatar/Nyquist? 

Hell no

A lot of nyquist and Tatars struggles I think came from being matched up against the stamkos line for much of the night. I'm sure that's a matchup cooper with stick with in tampa's home games. I would imagine Babcock will try to avoid that matchup and maybe try to match Datsyuk's line against them.
As far as the defense goes, someone said we played really bad defensively but I actually thought the opposite. We lost the puck possession game really badly and gave up a lot of shots but I thought everyone was in the right spots, clogging the middle and forcing outside shots that Mrazek didn't have any problems with.
The best news of all is that we have so much to improve but we still got the win. I don't think we'll see a game as lopsided as this one again

Although logic suggests Abdelkader is not going to play tomorrow, I still have some hope...


Our lines should be:

Except for Bishop's bed pooping, I can't see Tampa playing any better than they did tonight. Detroit on the other hand. Plenty of room for improvement. Need more out of Nyquist, Tatar, and Sheahan, although it must have been tough for them with all the penalties.

If Mrazek can stay dialled in, this series could be a nightmare for the Bolts.
