If the Oilers don't claim Dell I'll be shocked. Sadly they are at the back of the waiver order after claiming Grosenick yesterday though.

I went for a bike ride after the 1st period of Avs Blues. Needless to say I was surprised when I got home to see an 8-0 score.

Re: Thee Officialle 2021 NHL Season Thread: Catch the Fever!

Something low key hilarious is that the Oilers waived 3G Anton Forsberg for the taxi squad. He was claimed by Carolina. The very next day, Mike Smith was mysteriously unfit to play and it was reported that Carolina was trying to trade Forsberg back to Edmonton for a draft pick. Holland wouldn't bite...

Re: Thee Officialle 2021 NHL Season Thread: Catch the Fever!

When everyone is healthy I wouldn't mind seeing the following:

Nuge - McD - Pulju
Kahun - Drai - Yamo
Ennis - Turris - Kassian
Neal - Haas - Archibald

Leaves the PK pairs as Turris/Ennis and Haas/Archibald. Ennis hasn't really PKed for the Oilers but I wouldn't mind seeing them try him out there.

Re: Thee Officialle 2021 NHL Season Thread: Catch the Fever!

Chiasson is brutal at even strength and I don't think he contributes anything to the PP other than a right shot and a "heavy stick" - late in yesterday's game they put Puljujarvi out on the PP - hope that trend continues.

Re: Thee Officialle 2021 NHL Season Thread: Catch the Fever!

Are there other guys (taxi squad I guess) who could cycle onto the fourth line? Ryan McLeod at C and Tyler Benson at LW are probably the most promising. Tippett has shown that he likes to keep his PK pairs together in the bottom six, which makes sense. With Ennis injured, I wouldn't mind them tryin...

Re: Thee Officialle 2021 NHL Season Thread: Catch the Fever!

that was a fun game

4th line is real bad however. i know everyone's thinking "stop complaining about the 4th line" but they've already been outscored 4-0 at even strength and there's no offensive ability there

Re: Thee Officialle 2021 NHL Season Thread: Catch the Fever!

larsson looked quite bad, picking up on last year. they really should have traded him in the offseason, i believe they could have got something useful in return.

his back is a problem, his mobility is getting worse, and his defensive awareness is actually surprisingly bad these days.

Re: Thee Officialle 2021 NHL Season Thread: Catch the Fever!

Some notes: 2nd through 5th place in the North should be pretty tight, I could see any of those teams missing the playoffs. Picking the fourth playoff team in the West is tough . I know the Sharks were dogshit last year but I think there's an outside shot that they sneak in, provided that Burns and...
