I think McDavid鈥檚 suspension gave Draisaitl a renewed sense of confidence. He鈥檚 insane right now.

level 2

I was thinking the same thing

Amazing shift by Kosk defending the Columbus powerplay

That dominant shift was 1 minute and 36 seconds of magic.

Currie is spicy af

Ya that鈥檚 a downvote for me dog. Gotta give props to the young lads who make the squad at his age, no matter which team.

The fact that he can make plays and add to the glut of scoring is meaningful on any team.

level 5

Not saying he is not deserving to be on the team but top 6?

level 6
82 JONES1 point18 days ago

Absolutely. Did you see the lines? Kassian is not a top caliber player. He鈥檚 better than Kassian IMO, with way more upside promise.

level 7

My point is only that on any most every other team he is not top 6. Just like on most every other team Kassian is not top 6. On this oilers squad why not.

Hot Hot Hot!

OK don't get me wrong this game is great but leave it to the Oilers to give it there all with 17 games left in the season.

level 2

Sekera being back in the lineup has been pretty good.

Honestly, he could be a number 1 on most teams.

Hahaha wtf, is this meant to invoke a flood of down votes?

level 2

They will find a way to screw you one way or another. Chance at playoffs? Sucks balls. Chance at a really high first rounder? Better pick it up a bit. Oh shit we are getting close to wild card again? We better sit tight in 10th.

level 2

Outside of when we made the last playoffs, shifting to high gear in March and playing well until the end has always been the oilers.

That's what I'm saying. It seems the Oiler mentality is no hope = hope

level 4

I have reviewed your statement and can confirm you are correct

level 2

Took 1/2 a season to break player bad habits. You鈥檙e seeing the hitch effect in full force now.

level 3
29 DRAISAITL4 points18 days ago

Would you extend hitch?

No he coaches way too defensive for our team. Get a new coach with the new gm imo, he鈥檚 been fine for this year tho

Yes. Helped Leon get to his true potential. Got Kassian to play like the player his past 4 teams thought he was. Turned Nurse into a legit and consistent too 4 D.

The only tarnish on his record is JP.

level 5
29 DRAISAITL2 points18 days ago

The only issues I've really had are the constant line blending and JP but overall Leon has really found another level.
