Discussion in 'Edmonton Oilers' started by Del Preston, Oct 4, 2017.
Simple solution: Clone Wes Macauley.
Florida gave away Marchessault...plus gave them Reilly Smith to give away Machessault
And fired Gallant.
Im finally catching a playoff game and its all turnovets and posts and oilerz
unless Winnipeg score 3 unanswered im losing vcash tonight. I should know better then to bet on a game, regardless if the wager is real or fake
that silenced the crowd in a hurry
Right in the middle of the stupid 'Fleury, Fleury, Fleury' chant, Vegas scores.
Hellebucyk looks like Talbot tonight.
I've been so unimpressed with Trouba in these playoffs. He has to be the most overrated defenseman in the league. All the tools everyone dreams of in a defenseman, yet makes boneheaded decisions consistently.
Wow, Ehlers has 0 goals so far in the playoffs.
If the jets lose this series, I wonder if they will be willing to trade us Ehlers for Strome
Hes no brayden mcnabb thats for sure.
Vegas is simply fearless. Nothing scares them.
This is kinda classic Hellebucyk. Even going back to the regular season he is know to let a lot of goals in at bad times.
I think they are pretty good at just putting things behind themselves and sticking to their game plan. Not going to win every game, but if they stick to their game it can wear down other teams.
I didn't watch the game and have pretty much said hello to beautiful summer evenings and see you later for Playoff Hockey.
I look at the Jets lineup and its hard to imagine the Knights just walking in and being better. One would think the Jets had their part in not working as hard to get the result. The Jets seem really good at not taking advantage of opportunities. A big chance to go 2-zip and the Jets failed to do that. Jets also not taking advantage of home ice very well in these playoffs. Sometimes winning a game 7 can be counterintuitive. A team can feel that they are a gut it out team. Its a mistake, because the longer this series goes the more the Knights feel they are in it.
I'm basically reduced to watching game 7's because invariably one gets the feeling its where these series go.
I have no idea how a tired Jets club could win game 1 and then lose game 2. It doesn't make a lot of sense. One would think game 1 would have been harder on the Jets.
The Jets got complacent and the score could've been a lot worse had the Knights not hit the post a number of times.
The Jets are a better team but the Knights don't quit.
What the hell is with Klefs instagram account? Guy go crazy or get hacked?
Meh, **** the Jets. I've seen some hostile game day threads for other teams, but theirs when they played the Oilers this year was just flat out embarrassing. Had people wishing Oiler fans would die in car crashes when driving home from the arena ... and all sorts of other really vile nonsense on their board.
Calgary, Vancouver, etc. fans can be petty, but that was just gross and unwarranted, I would never say that to Flames or Canucks fans.
Babcock has 'outstanding' meetings with Matthews, other Maple Leafs
Surprised how much traction this Babcock/Matthews stuff is getting.
They're out of the playoffs, gotta find something to write about. And if it's something that stirs the pot a bit.. even better.
Anyone else excited to see whatever the Golden Knights conjour up for the game introduction?
Next on TSN; What Matthews and Babcock ate at the dinner meeting followed by a riveting 2 hour report on the brand of Matthews sweatsocks and later, how the Jets success influences the Maple Leafs signings this summer.
How is Kadri's cat doing?
Early reports say the fur ball she puked up last night looks like the head of Mitch Marner, and how that is seen as a sign that he will sign a long term deal this summer.
