    I wonder if they are going to match Kuznetsov against McDavid like they did in the past. I'd probably keep Backstrom has the shutdown center even if there is a huge speed disparity between him and McDavid mainly because Backstrom's line is a more solid possession line than the Kuznetsov line and no matter who you throw out against McDavid you are going to be at a disadvantage in transition, so you might as well try to keep the puck as much as possible.

    Huh yeah.

    A 2 goal game from Bura tonight might ignite a burning desire in Chiarelli to overpay to re-unite Bura with McDavid.

    Always a treat to see Kuzy and McDavid on the ice at the same time.

    Edmonton is having similar issues with Jesse Puljujarvi as we are with Burakovsky. I'd be up for a swap.

    Puljujarvi just turned 20 and has a higher pedigree than Burakovsky. No chance they would agree to swap him for Burakovsky.

    His rookie season was last year. Burakovsky's rookie season was 4 years ago.

    Victim blaming Kuznetsov's line is stupid and you are stupid for posting this.

    Man, DSP as 1RW is uninspiring... although it makes sense in a way -- trying to find effective combos for the other lines, while simply waiting for Wilson to come back.

    I know that. Wishful thinking. But you realize people said the same thing about Burakovsky at that age.
    BTW Puljujarvi was a rookie 2 seasons ago. He played enough games that season. Last season he was a sophomore.

    Assuming Puljujarvi makes sense as a target... if Edmonton is involved, it's worth a try. Let BMac sell some championship pedigree to those poor bastards. Throw something in. Ovi's championship socks+.

    Off-topic, the Oilers are mind-boggling to me. I generally wish Canadian teams well, but how many goddamn prime 1st round draft picks does it take to build a strong playoff team?

    McDavid makes me laugh. He has a constant look of bewilderment.
