    Small note but pretty interesting that they've picked up on it and glad that we are not the only ones thinking that the kid has been excellent in camp thus far!
    Best D pick up for GMJR in the past combined summers

    That sheds some light.

    I realize that the standard line was that the Oilers were just "so deep" in upcoming defensemen that they "just didn't have room" for Marino.

    As good as he's looked... that just didn't completely track. Especially considering how abysmal the Oilers are.

    I thought the argument there wasn't that the Oilers didn't want Marino, but rather that was he didn't want them.

    Interesting to hear the real why now.

    Oh honestly I didn't know there was any word on Marino basically telling them to pound sand. Though, I mean... it's Edmonton. Perhaps that should be an assumption at this point?

    Yeah. Now you mention it, I can't recall whether that was the actual rumour, or just my assumption because it made so much more sense for him to be goin nope

    “John is a mobile defenceman who excels at moving the puck while also playing with an edge to his game”

    Whoa! JR must have actually watched a defenseman this time.

    Whadda ya know about that!

    Got a nice shoutout from Friedman today.
    This dude isn't like Riikola in the slightest.
    Got Niskanen type player written all over him.

    Ohhh yeesh. POJ probably has the highest potential but I think he has the longest route to hit that potential. I do not think he's NHL ready. He's going to get a couple cups of joe and then he's either going to click or not. I think he's a couple years out from really finding his groove.

    That was more in line with LD needs versus Marino.

    Right now I think they'd give that LD call up to Warsofsky or Churchman, right or wrong. POJ needs to make a few waves in the AHL to change that (which I hope he can).

    The reason the Oilers had to trade Marino was because he didn't want to play for them. I think it was a combination of Chiarelli being fired and less opportunity on the Oilers.

    With the Penguins, he has a easier path to the NHL. With the Oilers, he would have to pass Bouchard, Smarukov, Jones, Bear and Lagessson (who is another underrated d).

    This is the the Oilers AHL lineup on d:
    Samarukov-Bouchard
    Jones-Bear/Persson
    Lagesson-Day
    + Broberg in the SHL

    Happy that he is doing good for you guys

    I guess the question is how long will it take those players to be in the NHL because from most accounts here, seems like Marino could hit the NHL as soon as later this season.

    Yeah, the openings on the Oilers D are on the right side.
    Nurse-Larsson
    Klefbom-X
    Russell-Benning/X (if someone can beat him)

    It looks like the last spot is going to Bear or Persson, or both of them if Benning sucks.

    I think he just wanted to not be near that franchise. There's a good chance if he did sign, he would have probably been in that group or ahead of it.

    But let's not pretend players don't know the Oilers, even with McJesus, are a toxic team for development. Holland isn't going to undo that stigma and fact within a summer.

    Haha, look at this asshole. I hope you go to a game and get bonked by a puck he deflects.

    Bear is on the opening day roster and has been excellent in camp. Wouldn’t be surprised if Bouchard, Lagesson, and some others get time this year as well.

    How is Marino doing? It’s good to hear him doing well. From what I’ve read he’s been impressive, wish him nothing but the best for you guys.

    Marino is doing good, got a steal for trading a 6th round pick. Buuuut anything can happen, so for right now he's been good.

    I think it’s as simple as him wanting to stay close to home in the northeast and having some control of the situation to make that happen.

    He's played far better than anyone expected him to. Skates and carries the puck extremely well, good stick defensively, solid positionally, has a physical edge. Sounds like a hype train post, but he has a very well rounded game and deserves a spot in the opening night line-up. He earned it.

    That’s awesome to hear, I always liked the physical side to his game. His skating has drastically improved in the last couple years as well.

    Seems like you guys are a good fit for him.

    Imagine out of all of this Marino becomes a great Dman while the rest of the Oilers d prospects busted?
