I wanna see:
I think that'd be a terrific 3rd line.
Three right shots, two players not playing in there preferred positions, don't really see it.
3 very very smart hockey players. 2 heart and soul players. 3 excellent forecheckers. 3 strong gritty players 2 very reliable defensive players. 2 speedesters. 3 great puck possession players(even though Chiasson stats say otherwise).
Plus, I think Pageau in middle sets up Lazar better to use his great shot instead of try to dish it to the likes of Condra and Neil etc...
Condra worked just as good on that line, on his off-wing and also right handed.
Three righties on the same line hasn't worked this season.
Quicker we get here the better. Young and growing pains but a starting pt. Nothing can be built on imo before these guys get shots. It's where our real core starts. All the other guys can be traded for more strong players.
I like this one personally
Where did turris go?
Got traded with MaCarthur, Smith, Condra, Rights to Nikita Filatov and Stefan Da Costa for Mike Milbury and Jay Feaster.
Well which center do you want to take out?
I'm trying to build a stronger team that can compete in the playoffs. I would trade him for a quality dman
Yeah that team will definitely compete in the playoffs
3 forwards with NHL playoff experience!
I think he is talking about the future when all those players actually have nhl experience and some playoff experience.
I don't he means right now at this very second.
The Oilers haven't made the playoffs with a similar looking roster either
It's something to build on for an eventual playoff run.
I think you mean eventually making a run at making the playoffs with that lineup
If there's one thing to learn from the Oilers' trainwreck is that emulating them is not a recipe for success
This looks like a weak set of forwards to me, with one decent line and the rest looking like 3rd and 4th lines, other than Stone. Add Turris and MacArthur back in and you have a better second line. I see Lazar and Paul as 3rd liners with one of Chiasson, Puempel or Prince. The last three I doubt will ever play in the NHL.
It may be but it's the best we got for 2 years away. I see lazar as more than a 3rd line guy eventually. Prince could be as good as MacArthur real soon(emphasis on could). Same type of players anyway (and same hairstyle).
Point is our veterans we have now aren't good enough and won't play much longer.
Turris is so weak. At least you can't say that about any of these centres. (Yes we should have drafted bjugstad)
And I like the potential of the bottom line. Lots of unknown there but lindberg is doing great in his rookie yr, is big and strong enough, shore is doing well and has a knack for scoring big goals, Robinson is huge and can skate as well as or better than most and is a good 2way player now.
Puempel and lazar showed great chemistry in camp and lazar and stone showed it during the season.
A guy who's never been in the NHL could be as good as a consistent 2nd liner for the last decade or so?!
He can't ?
Why did we draft him?
Not real soon no
lol @ trading Turris
I also suggested we could keep him as our 3C no? I might be ok with that. But probably better to trade him for a bigger need.
Paul-Lazar-Chiasson could be a nice third line.
Paul - Lazar - Stone, CND WJC Alumni line
Would be cool to see this just for a game or two before Wideman has to go back.
I like all those guys but they could be 5 to 10 yrs away from challenging for a Cup.
I'll stick with the present.
MacArthur - Turris - Stone
Hoffman - Zibanejad - Ryan
Greening - Pageau - Lazar
Michalek - Legwand - Chiasson/Condra
