Looks like JP is continuing with the idea of a complete fresh start and leaving the past in the past. He's now #13.

Team full of linebackers and wide receivers.


Matheson had the terrible take that that number wasn't one he should ever have been wearing in Edmonton. We have at points this decade had 89, 91, 93, 97, but for some reason 98 was quasi off-limits...

It must be why no one in Boston is ever allowed to wear 3 or 5, right?

The only number that should be off limits is 69... unless Gronk decides to play hockey. Everything else is up to personal taste. Personally I like lower numbers, but I don't actually care if someone decides to be 58.



This is fine.

I will say 98 is an ugly number, but your number has no bearing on performance. In certain markets like ours I can almost see Matheson’s point. He’s an idiot, but so are a lot of fans.

Must have just been a lazy birth year choice. Changing it to try to mix things up for a fresh start.

Looking forward to another year of Matty's hot takes.

I'm amazed Matheson was able to start up another Twitter account after the hacking. I bet his grandkids had to help.

If he can be as good as Ken Linseman or Andrew Cogliano, I'll take it.

What the heck is this all about?

Jim Matheson @jimmathesonnhl
No it is not OK for a player to wear 98 in the city where 99 was made famous. Don’t care if it year Jesse was born. It is a bad look. just acknowledge there are lots of other numbers and he has taken 13. Good for him in his new start



Pulju had 98 for 3 years with the org already. We have 97, 93, had 94, 91, 92.

Jim might really be losing it now.

I assume Jim was really mad about guys wearing 89 too, which requires the same number change to become 99.

Gagner and Comrie. SCUM!

Well Comrie was before he left. He even called the Oilers communists. But then he came back and it was all ok.

JP has really turned himself around, his skating is better, battle is better and he is getting some goals. McDavid looks to be getting comfortable with him and the mistakes he has made hasn't hurt the team.

Thrilled for his progression so far.

Being able to actually have a conversation with your linemates about what the opposition is doing and how to maybe attack them differently the next shift on the bench rather than just smile and nod I am sure has to help things.

It's crazy the Oilers decided to play him when he could only sit and nod AND didn't bother finding him a tutor.

Oh well, the past is the past. Let's talk about trading when his value is high.

They got him a tutor, he didn't go.

I guess the team could have kicked his door down, dragged him to the tutor, sat with him to make sure he didn't leave then had someone stay with him to force him to do whatever extra work he was supposed to do when he was at home or on the road.

I guess the effort the team needed to put in just needed to match the value they placed on using the #4 overall pick on him.

I read they set up a tutor for him and he didn't bother to go or didn't take it seriously and didn't do the work. So then the tutor calls and says JP stood me up. So they set him up again, tell him he needs to go so he goes and plays on his phone the whole time or tutor does the class, sends him home with work to do and he doesn't do it.

So like I said, what's the onus on the team? Are they expected to send hired goons because he's a #4 overall pick to his apartment, drag the kid out and force him to go to class? Then beat him if he doesn't do the work? At some point the person actually has to do the work. If your trainer tells you, you need to do these exercises and you just sit at home playing video games instead of going to the gym, that's the trainers fault?

My wife and I decided to take a Spanish class years ago because we were going to Peru for a month. Guess what, I actually had to go to the class, listen to the teacher, open the text book and do the work.

I'd really love to see a source on this, because I think this would be common knowledge on this board if such a detailed account existed.

I read they set up a tutor for him and he didn't bother to go or didn't take it seriously and didn't do the work. So then the tutor calls and says JP stood me up. So they set him up again, tell him he needs to go so he goes and plays on his phone the whole time or tutor does the class, sends him home with work to do and he doesn't do it.

So like I said, what's the onus on the team? Are they expected to send hired goons because he's a #4 overall pick to his apartment, drag the kid out and force him to go to class? Then beat him if he doesn't do the work? At some point the person actually has to do the work. If your trainer tells you, you need to do these exercises and you just sit at home playing video games instead of going to the gym, that's the trainers fault?

My wife and I decided to take a Spanish class years ago because we were going to Peru for a month. Guess what, I actually had to go to the class, listen to the teacher, open the text book and do the work.



I'd really love to see a source on this, because I think this would be common knowledge on this board if such a detailed account existed.


Yeah, I think this is an adaptation of the BS story the team sold when they were trying to excuse themselves for botching his development. If you believe all this, I have some swampland in Florida to sell you.

For what it's worth - yes. If you can't communicate with the kid, then you find a way to get him learning. No matter what it takes. You don't keep him up for the better part of his first two seasons if he's not doing what the team is asking him to.

Also BS? They couldn't demote him because they pinky-sweared to his agent that they wouldn't.

Hey - Chiasson scored two goals this week! Shouldn't that buy him at least another month on PP1 without everyone's slings and arrows?

That's pretty awesome.

When this thread got bumped I read a couple unread comments above without reading the dates, about Jesse and covid protocol and without a word of a lie I got a bit sick in my stomach. After reading I frantically went to google, then back to the comments and their dates. Whew.

Anyway, a long way from where he was with the team to being an essential piece now.

This has to be considered a huge win for Holland and the club. Watching the team and Jesse growing up and growing together is so nice to see, it's positively heartwarming.



This is fine.

I don't have any problems with Klefbom and would love for him to come back. But I am a realist. When you have a player have a health problem that there is no cure from, I don't like his chances of coming back. If he blew out his knee, even worse than McD's, docs can fix that. You go in, fix the ligaments, you rehab, players come back as good or close too it. Happens lots. There is no fix for arthritis. You go in, sew up something and in x months, you are better. All they are doing is trying to fix the symptoms and make it more manageable. There is a very good chance it will come back and no one knows when or how bad. But what is know is, repetitive use and trauma to the area you have arthritis in, makes it more likely to come back and if you cause trauma to the area, it's more likely to come back more quickly. So if Klefbom comes back, everything he gets rammed into the boards, or falls on it or has to use his shoulder to even bump someone to get them off the puck or win a puck battle or the torque you put on that shoulder joint to take a shot or make a pass which as a dman are pretty common, important things they have to do every shift to do their job. A dman has to do all those things combined(pass, shoot, hit, bump, take a hit) what 50+ times a game? All those things cause trauma on that joint.

So I am not being negative. I am looking that the reality. There is a very good chance that at some point, he will get hurt again because like I said, his condition isn't curable. So I don't think it's a good idea to make critical rosters decisions on a guy with a known condition who is basically a ticking time bomb waiting to be out again. To put it another way, if Klefbom was on a different team, there isn't a chance in hell in my opinion that any fan who disagrees with me, would be dancing in the streets out of joy if the Oilers spent and kind of decent assets to get him in trade. They would be grabbing pitch forks and proclaiming how stupid Oilers management was again for trading for a guy with Klefboms injury history and his uncertainty.

While I still stand by my statement that JP's previous issues were as much/more on him than the team and many of his interviews and his own admissions in my opinion confirms that. I never hated the guy, I only did not agree with some people giving the guy a free pass for the problems he had. With that being said, I am very happy that it appears I was wrong about him. It was looking pretty bleak a year ago but I give him full credit for doing whatever it is he did to turn himself a round. I am a diehard Oilers fan, I only want my team to win and JP figuring it out only helps my team be better which is all I care about.

My hope is that his play this season is only the tip of the iceberg for him because he has all the physical tools to be a very good player for years to come. I am more than happy to be wrong about this player.

I once said Yams was a bust pick. So none of us have a perfect record (except Adam).

Adam is all knowing so we all bow to him, that's a given. How that guys isn't running an NHL team and racking up the cups, is truly mind blowing to me.

I have no problem owning it when I was wrong. I want my team to win. The Oilers used a #4 for JP so you need those top picks to pan out. So I am happy to be wrong about JP because him turning into player, helps the Oilers.

I think this was definitely a situation where the fault could be spread out.

Pulju wasn't mature enough to handle how he was handled. And the org was not set up in a way to handle him in the way he needed. 2 competing factors with zero solution. McLellan got sniff of Pulju having some entitlement about where he should be playing, and that was it. Pulju was going to have to show he could be a solid grinder or he was going to be down the lineup forever. With his hip issues and zero confidence, he never had a shot with Hitch. Hitch quickly shifted into a mode of trying to salvage his reputation with a tanking team and there was really no time at all to give Pulju any attention or help.

I don't blame Pulju that much for wanting out, how hard could it have been to feel optimistic about being an Oiler after those 3 seasons?

Even after all that crap though, the situation was clearly not beyond repair. The org changed, we have a coach more willing to work with individuals in a useful way, and Pulju grew up a bit and here we are.


Chia likely would have traded Pulju for a 3rd :) I bet he would still be struggling with our team if McLellan was still coach too. Maybe wouldn't have even come back if that was the situation.
