This could be a real deal guy for the top 6 in 3-4 years. Had a great playoff & was really solid after he was traded mid year.

Heard on the radio this morning that some people are thinking this could be the steal of the draft. Big guy, a beast on the boards, and has a hard shot. Here's hoping he pans out.

Some of Chia's big moves have been questionable but he seems to do well at the draft. Jones and Bear are later round picks. You hear good things about Jones and Bear looks like he's getting close. People keep raving about Safin. This Maksimov looks like he's got something. He's in junior but it's always good to hear players getting better and better rather than the other way.

I'm really hesitant to congratulate anyone on the draft before it has played out a little more. Yes, people are excited about Bear and Jones - but it wasn't so long ago that people were raving about Stu McGregor's picks. I remember people crowing about the pipeline of defence with Marincin and Musil and Gernat and Simpson...

It's too early to slam picks or applaud them. Hopefully Bear continues on the right path - he looks good so far. And hopefully the team doesn't believe that because they have one good young defenceman who's capable of moving the puck that it suddenly frees them up to liquidate another one for lesser assets like they always do...

Adam, I don't expect you to give Chia credit for anything which it totally fine. Chia could get Sekera to waive his no move, pull off a jedi mind trick on Dorian and get him to agree to take Sekera and a pick for Karlsson. Then the Oilers could sign Karlsson to the exact same money as Sekera and you would complain that the pick was too high, the Oilers weakened their left side and the term of the deal was too long. icon_lol

I thought Adam gave a pretty balanced response.

You can't really applaud or slam at the moment.

His Glorious Bastard example was a damn good one too. History and statistics indicates the drafting then was a unholy tire fire, but we were all "Oil Changing" it up big time back then.

Except you KNOW that's exactly what they think. You just don't want to admit it.

....getting back to Maksimov...looks like he is making progress...tiny steps, to be sure, but seems to be fitting in, among others, with the program..

https://www.nhl.com/oilers/news/dev-camp-team-messier-take-b illy-moores-cup/c-299336262

..."On his first, He shared a give-and-go with Tyler Benson, capping the play with a backdoor gimme on Olivier Rodrigue.

The Russian whipped a wrister high glove to get Team Gretzky within one on his second.

"You can't teach that," Oilers Vice President of Player Development Scott Howson said of Maksimov's snipe after the match."...

....hope, not hype....

I got really excited about this assessment until I read that it was from Scott Howson.



How could one doubt the braintrust of 6 Cups Kevin Lowe, MacT's E-MBA from Queens, Paul Coffey's skills coach resume, and drunk Gretzky?

I ignored what Howson said and pay more attention to what other people have said. He's got some size, skates well, right shooting, has a big shot, likes to shoot, nose for the net, has skill, playing in the OHL and continues to get better each year. He was drafted in the 5th round so the chances that a guy in the 5th makes the NHL aren't good but it sure sounds like he has a legit shot.

This guy is going to be a sniper in the NHL, can't wait until he matriculates. Another year in the O and one in the A. He has dual Russian/Canadian citizenship, born in Canada, and played midget AAA in Toronto. So IMO there is a better chance he stays here once he gets in the system and doesn't pull the chute and bolt to the KHL, like Bogdan Yakimov, others..

http://edmontonjournal.com/sports/hockey/nhl/cult-of-hockey/ edmonton-oilers-summer-development-camp-day-three-kirill-mak simov-shoots-his-way-into-prominence

He was a steal.
