    I was thinking that Jones may draw in as the 7th D man. If one of Lagesson or Bear or Russell cannot play, the Jones will be 7th D is my guess.

    I think the org isn’t very high on Jones right now. My guess is he’ll be the odd man out on D when it comes to the expansion draft.

    It's a miracle that Yamamoto is playing. That cheap hit looked really nasty. :ha:

    Van's been having hard time holding on to their leads recently. McDavid should be able to feast on them.

    For some reason we always play super up-and-down against the Canucks. As an Oiler fan living in Vancouver I can recall almost every game and I'm always a bit nervous for them. They are currently playing a lot better than a week ago so should be a close 2 game split. I think it'll come down to our goaltending and PK.

    I got 4-3 Oilers.

    Entirely clear as I've been stating for around a week.

    Around 2 years ago the bolded would be considered a pun. ;)

    He seemed to favor passing over shooting moreso than usual in the Calgary games as well, maybe there's something there.

    Big 2 games here. I am feeling like the Leafs and flames will split their 2 games.

    If we can pick up wins in both games against Vancouver we can be 4 back of Toronto (they have a game in hand).

    Then a 3 game series against Toronto, could make up some ground there!

    I have thought he's nursing an injury going back to when he got pasted by Pionk. He looks off in his last few games since then.

    Based on the pairings at practice, I expect Jones and Bouchard to both sit and for them to go

    Nurse - Barrie
    Lagesson - Bear
    Russell - Larsson

    If Lagesson + Bear can both play.

    I'm not endorsing this, just predicting.

    I said this in the last PGT and GDT, I'd like to see a blowout! Yes, two in a row! hahaha probably asking too much but it'd be fun to watch.

    If Drai's injured, that'd explain a lot recently... Hopefully it's nothing that could turn into something major.

    I think Vancouver has played a lot better recently, even though they're still losing games.

    I don't expect a blowout.

    Nurse Barrie
    Lagesson Bear
    Bouchard Larsson
    Russell

    Russell can rotate in for Lagesson and Bouchard for more difficult matchups or if they aren't going.

    I'm torn with regards to the other teams lol.

    The Leafs beating Calgary twice would kill Calgary and there would be a definite split between the top 4 and bottom 3.

    But Calgary beating the Leafs would keep Toronto close to us, but also allowing Calgary to hang around.

    Obviously I'm confident that the Oilers can take the division (and I despise the Leafs) but finishing 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th doesn't really matter. Making the playoffs is what matters!

    I would be ok if they split the series and each had a humiliating loss in there.
