The only thing worse than expecting teenagers to save the team is rushing teenagers back from injury in hopes they can save the team. I will be completely okay with it if Holloway is still playing in the NCAA next year. I’d rather see Benson or McLeod up this spring if we need an injection of youth to rushing to sell more hope by jamming the latest first rounder in to the lineup one more time.

Ugh, why would they do that?

Just let him have fun being BMOC for a full year, have a top 6 role at WJC, make a legit run at Hobey Baker, and have a cheaper year at 26 instead of 19.

Why do we keep ruining kids ny rushing them?

Holloway wouldn't be eligible for U20's, need to be 19 until January 1st, 2022, he'll be 20 in September, 2021. Plus, Wisconsin will be in a rebuild, and he's put in 2 years there already.. time to move on..

Fully agree here. Though, I fear some are already penciling him in as ‘The Nuge Replacement’... someone who will play 1LW or 2C depending on the situation, and I think, while it’s perfectly fine to have expectations, those expectations are quite flippin’ lofty.

Let the kid earn it. Let’s see what he can do in Bakersfield to end the year once his hand/wrist his okay and in the mean time, get McLeod up to the big club ASAP.

Its first week of May, the date Tippet said Holloway's thumb might be ready, wonder if he gets to come practice with the Oil, similar to what is apparently supposed to happen with Broberg.

I think they need to wait until the playoffs - I believe the team only has a couple more call-ups available now - they may want to save those for guys who've played more recently.

I think you can only call up 2 or 3 more from the taxi to the Oil roster, but can you add more to just the taxi squad (I think the limit is 6) ?
Can't Holloway or BroB go on the taxi squad on a PTO, or would they have to send 2 existing taxi squad guys down to Bakersfield to make room on the taxi list?

I believe they can expand the roster to 25 now but the taxi squad can’t be more than 6. Given cap concerns and no imagination or creativity within Oilers management, we probably can’t expand the roster before the post-season (when I believe we can go beyond 25 too).

PTO isn’t an option for either guy - they’ve both signed their first contracts.

It would surprise me if either can play in the regular season. I think the team should look at calling up Marody and Benson though. I think we could be done with Patrick Russell and no one would notice. Is Nygard still even on the team? Turris may as well be demoted too. I think those two have more potential to add something to the lineup. I don’t mind the idea of a Graves/Murphy/Gelinas type fourth line. Could be really effective - much more so than Neal/Chiasson/Shore.

I'm excited for our added cap flexibility this summer. Should allow us to buy out a couple new guys now that we're finally finished paying Pouliot.

The only thing to be worried about is that Ken Holland has never shown himself to be really capable of managing the cap. When he's had cap space before, he's mostly just blown it on over-paying players he feels some level of loyalty to.

This summer is a massive test for him.

It's funny because, while I believe it could be true for the Oilers, the idea that the GM needs to manage the cap on his own is a bit silly for an organization worth hundreds of millions of dollars. There should be a team of stats people and accountants who model out all kinds of various moves, with at least a four year outlook. He should already know the potential effects of a Turris buyout when he signs him and how that might affect something like Nurse's next deal.

Yes - the problem with the Oilers is that they don't seem overly interested in hiring people who aren't like the group already in the office. Stats geeks and loophole seekers need not apply.

Did you see how quickly Holland answered the question when asked if he considered any creative cap solutions at the deadline? They don't think it's even worth discussing.

Polar opposites, like Lucic and a skills coach.

Holloway signs an AHL contract, practicing with Condors..
At a minimum good to get in a few games in as a Condor.. and.. possible call up if the Oil go deep into the playoffs? icon_nod (me) icon_nod (Oscar?)
Anyone know the rules regarding call ups from the farm in the playoffs? Probably need a 2-way contract?

I like it!!! Quick recovery, no? I figured he’d be out for the remainder. Him flying on that left side of Connor and Jesse would be simply stunning!

I believe it’s a 2-way needed to be allowed to get called up. Still, good for them to get him in some games down there.

I believe it's a little more open in the playoffs. Although chances of Tippett being comfortable throwing a teenager in to the mix in a playoff series is pretty low unless we're decimated by injuries.

I still think Benson should be up though...

Benson's big knock is he's not supposed to possess NHL speed, but if I look at some of the forward options in the Oiler bottom 6, I find it hard to imagine Benson could be much slower, and might be even faster. Benson always had elite skill, and played a physical game, good cycle, sound defensively, which he has currently put together in Bakersfield. After seeing MacLeod's game in the NHL, I'm thinking Benson's projected NHL game may have been underestimated by the Oilers.

Heard from Stauffer and Spector yesterday that they've each talked to different NHL scouts who say they'd take Benson on their NHL team, and think that Seattle might even pick him up if left unprotected. Just Stauffer/Spector, but if true might be a case where the team has misevaluated a legitimate prospect.

I thought he looked good when up last year. Just one assist in 7 games so he didn't light the world on fire, but I don't think he had any time up the lineup, and our depth lines have sucked so bad at putting up points, it's not like it's going to get worse. I wouldn't mind playing him with McLeod - they have some familiarity there and maybe they would defer less if playing with a peer. Give them small minutes at first if need be, but seriously - Patrick Russell has played in 15% of the Oilers games this year...I don't think Benson could add less.

Bakersfield playing tonight, interesting to see if Holloway gets in, Woodcroft had said he'd likely put up with Benson and Marody if/when he did play.

I read over on Lowetide that Holloway won't play any of the final regular season games, might get in for a few Condor playoff games.. and.. I'm thinking maybe round 3 of the NHL payoffs? icon_nod

Dylan Holloway didn't play in either Bakersfield games because last x-ray revealed his thumb wasn't completely healed. No need rushing him to play. #Condors

Dylan Holloway's exit interview (among others; Holloway's is at the bottom of the list). from Bakersfield included among those from other team members.

https://www.bakersfieldcondors.com/news/exit-interviews/

Even though he didn't play while he was in Bakersfield, he seems to have gained from his time down there. Hoping that thumb of his completely heals before training camp rolls around.

Hope he has a complete recovery from the second surgery and he recovers better than ever, like a pitcher after Tommy John surgery.
