    He’s a major breakout candidate especially if he finds chemistry with Turris or McDavid eventually.

    He should get some favourable matchups on the 3rd line with Turris.

    To a player they all have raved about this new and improved Pulju. Time heals all wounds and I think he grew up back in Suomi.

    It's going to be a sloppy game. I expect McDavid to come out flying and catch the Nucks off guard. I give this game to the Oilers

    I think as fans we are far too harsh on these kids, They take time to mature and develop just like everyone else. We expect the moon out of them from day 1 purely based on a draft number. I can't imagine the kind of stress that causes on these young guys. Getting away from NA and rounding out his game back home probably did wonders for him mentally

    People aren't predicting the Oilers to do well cause they are a team that loves to let you down. Assume they will average or suck and they will probably do better than your expectations

    Then what possible reason is there for people predicting the Leafs will do great. They wrote the book on shitting the bed.

    It would be a shock to me if I could possibly hate Toronto and Calgary more than I do now. But I always say to myself there is room for improvement in everything I do in life, so I will try to up my hate meter past 100%. ;)

    Just wanna put this on record. I’m excited about this upcoming season based on the offseason pick ups. I haven’t been excited about an offseason for a long time, in fact every time I’m critical of the moves made the Oilers end up sucking or are mediocre as expected.

    This year with the key missing piece in an puck moving offensive d-man finally filled, I think the Oilers will have a great year. Not to mention McDavid I fully expect to be on another level not seen before, he’ll be unstoppable.

    Another consideration, we’ve come out the gate hot in preseason games the last few years. With no preseason action if that early trend continues, it could be very helpful for us in a season where every single game and winning streak matters.

    Goes without saying we need to get a roll and winning games early.

    This is what I've been saying. A lot of people taking the play in series as far more important than the 70 game regular season, when really the play-in series was a bit of a side show wildcard.

    I think on paper the Oilers are the only Canadian team that improved from last season, and we were already the best Canadian team last year.

    Especially for a kid that barely spoke English and was stapled to the bench for the simplest errors and his inability to articulate himself in English had to be difficult.

    The raw talent and physical tools are all there. By pretty much every account he’s come back a completely new player with a better mindset and English skills.

    Sometimes young men make mistakes. I know I sure as shit did when I was his age and even slightly older, we grow and mature in our views as we get older.

    I think the time back home did wonders for him and his confidence hopefully, it had to have been a tough transition for him the first time he was in North America.

    Just laughable. Habs will be the biggest disappointment in the division considering the hype they have.

    “O-Dog” with the Jets first......did he bother looking at their blue line?

    At least it got me pumped for the Oilers to prove some of these guys wrong.

    He has a chance to correct this story and redeem himself. We all love a redemption story in life and in sports.

    Something that I have always leaned on in tough times, especially when I was younger was “the last chapter to my story has not been written yet”. I would repeat that over and over again when I would go through adversity. Heck, I still do.

    The same applies to Pulju, the last chapter to his story as a hockey player is far from written. He’s still kind of this big goofy puppy growing into his paws. If he ever learns how to use his body and play physical he could become an absolutely dynamic power forward with his size, skating, and shot.

    Love Drai. I have no doubt that Connor is a great leader and a great captain, but Leon is always a bit more vocal in the media and always seems to have great confidence in the team and himself. Examples being here and when he shut everyone up about being able to carry his own line last year.

    We’re blessed to have them both.

    I can’t understand it. I have tried to remove the homer glasses but I don’t see how on paper the oilers are any worse than 3rd.

    Our 2nd line center is a top 5 player in the world for Christ sakes.

    Anything can happen in season with injuries, Covid etc but as of right now. It’s between the oilers and leafs for top spot.
