lol. You are their hero.
The main point is that having an echo chamber is not good. Currently it's a negative echo chamber and has been all season... very little discussion, just Chia sucks, they suck, the other guy sucks, they all suck.
Lol sure. Wasnt my intention to get convey that with my post. Just that they are contrarian points of views on this board.
Might be a more accurate description but the point I was trying to make is that it makes the boards much less enjoyable. Some of the negativity is justified. However a lot of the negativity is just being negative for the sake of it. Some of the posts are so over the top and so poorly thought out that it just comes across as mindless venting. The problem is that it never ends...it just seems to gain momentum.
Yeah I hate that too. I think there is an extreme opposite of that as well is my point. But I might be missing some context (ban lifts?) so maybe I dont get the whole story.
Currently the contrarian view is finding any positive in the current mess.
At this point the problem is that any moderate thoughtful posts get lost in the noise.
The ban lifts thing is only relevant in the sense that some of the most prolific posters on this board are people who were previously banned.
Edit: by moderate I mean both sides, I'm generally a positive person but there are obviously serious problems with the season so far.
Buffalo seems to be struggling a tad. I wonder if Botterill might look to make a shakeup trade. Zemgus Girgensons wouldn't be a bad option to try and poach if the cost is right. A guy with size signed for another year who could possibly replace Letestu on the fourth line next season. I wonder if they'd have any interest in Anton Slepyshev.
god forbid anyone saying anything other than #firechia or they sucked tonight. Im happy for an 8-2 win tonight, means the negative nacy's will go back into their hiddy holes until the next game
I'd rather keep Slepyshev to be honest. He'll likely be cheaper to re-sign and I'm not sure there is much difference in their on ice ability at this stage of their careers.
I would love to see a Maroon++ for Kreider type of deal put together by the Oilers. He has legitimate Wheeler potential.
I think we could get Girgensons for a mid round pick. No need to trade Slepy
Easy peesy. With the boards switching to the new format, I think they lost records on old IP numbers.
So bunch of banned posters are back.
Oh nevermind, you already said the same!
I think you are 100% correct. The same information was confirmed to me in a PM.
Just have to accept it I guess.
I can't wait until the Oilers fully turn it around and we can all hug it out and sing Kumbaya !
I have a sneaking suspicion we're nearing the end of Slepyshev's tenure in Edmonton. It's simply a case of too many bodies, not enough roster spots. His waiver eligibility kicks in very soon as well. Cashing in on a guy who can play center and penalty kill would be a big plus.
I'm also not sure that Buffalo hates him that much.
I actually think we won't re-sign Maroon just cause we can't afford him with McDavid and Nurse getting raise and we are stuck with Russell next year. Slepy is more comfortable playing LW and could slot in for Maroon alongside McDavid-Drai.
I've yet to see that type of offense from Anton. He's looked lost in the few occasions I've seen him with McDavid.
Slepy-McDavid-Drai looked good sometime last season when it was experimented. I agree Slepy looked out of place with McDavid this season but that could be due to the fact he was playing RW
I see him more as a package piece like what could Slep + 2nd net us?
Could that package get Mike Green? Cause we could definitely use a player like that on our blue line. Maybe something like Slep + Fayne + 2nd + 4th for Green + 6th
Interesting that Cammalleri has as many goals (3) as Lucic this season.
Mike Green would be an interesting add but once Sekera gets back the need to add another dman drops significantly IMO.
Disagree. The D needs better outlet passing and a legit right shot option on the PP. Even with Sekera.
I hear what you're suggesting and I dont necessarily disagree. Who sits though?
