I like Broberg and Bouchard. Holloway is rounding out pretty nice too as a PWF-type of player. They are about to get another mid-1st.

 

They've got some guys but they are a bit aways. 

Fair, although I really don't like Bouchard, especially after his atrocious performance at the WJHC on a team he shouldn't have even made.  He was slow, soft, and stupid, and frankly disgraced his country with his play in his own zone.  Unless he made a serious attitude adjustment and increased his compete level, he is never going to be a contributor for an actual NHL team.

The problem is they not only haven't built a decent team around him, they don't have much hope of building one in the near future.  Pretty bare cupboards, a city no one in their right mind would live in voluntarily, and a scouting department that struggles to draft NHLers in the first round, let alone later.

The Oilers will probably have to (try to) overpay some UFAs (middle of the pack types, not star players) to come to Edmonton, or to keep the ones they already have who they would like to keep. It will be tough with how their team's cap is arranged. I'm assuming they will let Barrie walk for a start on managing their money.

Yup, sometimes that's the best type. To be honest I was never sure why Edmonton signed that guy. The only good thing about them signing Barrie is that they showed good sense in not giving him any amount of term beyond this season.

Middle of the pack/above average prospect pool IMO. Same as ours but we keep having prospects graduate.

 

He's pretty poise with the puck and makes good decisions offensively. He's more of an offensive defenseman than anything. I feel you though. he was more of a risk/reward type pick. They should really not have him and Barrie in the lineup though, that spells trouble.

 

Broberg is where it's at though. Dude keeps improving and has the potential to be one a great defenseman moving forward.

 

Bensen, Holloway, McLeod and Lavoie look to round out a pretty decent forward group. Holloway especially stands out. You'd like him as a player. 

 

 

I need to stop talking about prospects though I go into a rant.

 

Biggest question moving forward is their goaltending. If they retain Adam Larsson their D should be good with Broberg joining/improving and Bouchard maybe replacing Barrie's offensive-role. Could use a solid 3rd C too.

 

They have like 22M in cap and Klefbolm coming back next year with only cheap bridge deals to sign on youngsters. They have options during the off-season it should be interesting. They could look to make a huge splash in FA.

 

I hope whatever they do falls flat on their face though.

I thought all the panel gushing over McDavid yelling at Puljajarvi on the bench was ridiculous. Thats not leadership. 

 

And I think it would have been fitting for Puljajarvi to yell at McDavid for the lazy giveaway that cost Edmonton the game.

 

Watched a bit of the post game too. Asking other players how bad they feel for McDavid. Not for the team or even themselves but for McDavid.

 

Also, is Nurse concussed or does he talk like that normally?

Better ask them about any player trade requests ;)

Nurse played 61:01 tonight. He might just be tired and discouraged.

I agree, Evan Bouchard is vastly overrated. Other than his shot, I didn't see anything that would make be believe "this guy is a superstar". I just saw more upside in Noah Dobson who fyi, looks like hes going to be a solid player

To LA:  Connor McDavid, Zack Kassian, Ethan Bear

 

To Edmonton:  Quinton Byfield, Alex Turcotte, 3 first rounds picks, $15 million

Got a flashback to summer, 1988

Well in 1988 it was $15 million so I guess with inflation you can bump it up another $100 million or so...

Ah ha, thought you were referencing(precisely) that deal.

Bouchard can’t skate, but is smart.   Broberg skates great, but is dumb like post.  Oilers have three players.  I really like Nurse.
