In Topic: Abdelkader to return for Game 3

Yesterday, 01:08 PM

 

Weiss is the most frusterating player for me to watch because he clearly has the skill and the instincts around the crease to be an effective player, but he's just awful at every other aspect of the game.  I honestly don't get it.  But anyway, I'm with you.  Andersson, who does nothing great, but plays responsible hockey is probably a better option than Weiss at this point.

 

I just can't believe the whole thing played out like it did. If anyone had suggested that Weiss would be a healthy scratch in the regular season and playoffs when we signed him, they'd be a laughing stock. How is it that all of our free agent signings, even the ones that seem to be good ones,go so incredibly wrong lately???

 

More importantly, can we unload Weiss this summer? I don't get how things went so wrong, but I can't imagine that he's just useless. There's got to be a team out there that wouldn't have him sitting in the press box half the year. I'm willing to admit that he's probably done being a factor on this team, whatever the reason may be, but I just have a hard time believing Weiss is really done as a regular NHL player.

McDavid today: "On second thought..."

 

'For years now, ever since it became apparent McDavid was a generational talent who would generate incredible buzz, the player has gone out of his way to ensure everyone knows he'll play for any team that drafts him. There'll be no attempt to call his shot, just as he didn't try to avoid going to a weak Erie franchise that took him No. 1 overall in the OHL draft.

 
"It's always been important to me to not be 'that guy,'" McDavid said. "My Dad told me that when I was going into the OHL. There was all sorts of talk about me skipping out on Erie, going somewhere else, and it was my Dad who told me, 'You don't want to be that guy.' I am grateful to him for that advice because it's so true, he was so right. The last three years in Erie have been the best three years of my life. I've always said I would be happy and honoured to play for any team. I have always felt strongly about that."'

This is about the saddest of all possible outcomes for this kid. It's just unbelievable what talent the Oiler's have been able to burn through the last few years. It really doesn't seem fair at all.

I can't find the Zetterberg thread but I think our captain needs to be called out. He has been garbage now all of 2015 he has scored what maybe 4 or 5 goals in the last 4 months while playing top line minutes and #1 PP unit game in and game out? 

Wake the f*** up

 

I just don't think his body is up for it anymore. I don't think for a second that it's for lack of heart and effort.
