    Im not convinced on Turris. Can't win battles. And i think Nuge is there a lot for defense. I wouldn't bet on anyone else doing his job as well but i do think Nuge would possibly be better used elsewhere. I do think your assesment of how that line works is bang on.

    I agree about the 2nd line also not really being the sum of it's parts too, but for me they're less of a puzzle. That line goes as Drai goes. Unpopular opinion but Drai to me has had a few off nights this year, including last night where his touch and finish were off. Yamo is very consistent, especially his effort, and Kahun is a sub $1M player where you get what you pay for (some good plays but he's not going to drive scoring).

    Again, all the more reason to try some variety between these lines. I don't mind those lines, but I think Kassian (when back) is a better fit with Drai/McD than Kahun, and you just use Kahun to keep Kass honest.

    I’m convinced on Turris, convinced his best days are far behind him.

    Great game for the Oilers, but I was puzzled at Jesse's usage: third lowest minutes of the forwards and considering that includes Yamamoto who didn't play the whole game, so really only Ennis got less minutes. Obviously the constant special teams ate away his minutes as he was only on ice for that one PP shift and one short stint on PK late in the game, which Iwould like to see more in the future.

    Tippett probably didn't want to put him out there in case calgary started to goon it up

    A combo of a lot of special teams, and Tippet resting the top line once the game was out of hand and rolling the other lines more.

    Terrible ! Puljujarvi struggle at the NHL level and now he just starting to gain confidence and play well you want to move him to his off wing . Great way to get back the old confused Puljujarvi . The only move I would make is move RNH back to Draisaitl and trade one of our extra D for a LW similar to Maroon . (actually 2 moves)

    Yep. That Tippet gave him a PK shift late in the game shows that it wasn’t a benching or punishment thing. Just a low TOI game in the second of a back to back.

    I like that Tipp had Bouch out there on a late PK as well.

    I did too. You've got a 6 goal lead, why not try out some different pairings on the PK or give guys looks who wouldn't normally so they can get some experience in a low pressure situation.

    Well with Yama injured Pulju can stay RW.
    We finally got an ES Nuge goal primary assisted by McD so dont think Tipp will break that up now.

    Drai will just have to work with Ennis, Kahun and Archi as his wingers.

    I wonder how long does it take for Kassian to get back in the line up? Also what is going on with Turris?

    Speaking of Turris, this would be his chance to get a look in the top 6 if he wasn't hurt.

    Pulju is having a great season by the numbers. Helping a ton in transition.

    Poor Jesse... so confused. Why's everyone trying to punch such a loveable guy? All he does is hug back.

    Jesse needs to take some lessons on how to defend himself. Sadly because of his size he will be targeted. Knock some of these f***ing clowns out and then suddenly they won't want anything to do with him. Amazing how a plug like Roussell can get away with that while Kassian gets a murder wrap thrown at him for stepping on someone's pet turtle.

    Poopoo went to the bench and was sad. I felt sad for him today. He is so innocent. Nuge stepped up and protected him. Atleast he got us the pp

    Have to give this player some love, I was a big skeptic, but he set up McDavid and RNH both with AAA scoring chances and for once the blame is on those guys for not finishing, lol. His passing ability is surprisingly strong.

    Roussell is just dumb, I don't know what he was thinking there, not gonna waste any time trying to dissect that.

    Pulju served his linemates two absolutely glorious changes, and had a couple good changes himself. Very unlucky not getting any points out of this game. Why the hell wasn't Russell made to pay for attacking Pulju? I was waiting for Khaira to get the job done.
