I listened to Stauffer interview Babcock last week and he talked about how in Detroit, they used to load up Datsyuk and Zetterberg when they played at home due to match ups to overwhelm the other teams. Personally, I am not a fan of having McD and Leon together. I know it's a match up nightmare for teams, I love how amazing they are together but I just think the team is more balanced with them apart.

I really hope this is a head fake from Tippett. The numbers have shown that McDavid & Draisaitl are better apart at even strength. This is because teams don't fear any other lines and can just focus on trying to do anything they can to slow down our one line if we stack it. Both those guys don't need the other to generate offence, so if they're split up, it makes it really tough to defend. Basically means you have two first lines and the other team can decide which of them gets their best defenders, because they can't be out against both. It also means that rather than one dangerous line for about 30% of the even strength time, you have two dangerous lines out on the ice for 60+% of the time.

I think Tippett SHOULD play them together in special situations - first shift after a opposing powerplay, icing call against tired opposing players, maybe late in a game trailing by a goal. We should not default to playing them together again though. And it's not like Hyman didn't look just fine with McDavid and Puljujarvi in the pre-season.

I keep hoping Tip is just mixing things up to put opponents off guard, but things eventually just end up with McDrai together forever, unless Tippett is desperate. I guess he did start the playoffs with McDrai on their own lines in the playoffs, but quickly went back to the loaded top line when it didn't immediately work (although that 1 game he did it was our best of the series in terms of share of chances).

Still waiting on Tippett to show a little creativity here. Not giving him the benefit of the doubt anymore that he's doing something special.

I dont agree with Connor and LD together when Nuge is centering the 2nd line, to me your 2nd best center should play center. It is debatable whether McLeod is even an NHL caliber center at this stage, so it makes even less sense .

What numbers are these?
I just listened to Gregor on Lowetide's show, both of whom do numbers and they went on and on about how insane their numbers are together. One of the numbers they mentioned was points per 60 and supposedly McD's points per 60 are over 5 with Leon. So you are telling me that McD's numbers without Leon are even better than that?

I am not advocating for them to play together. I have said all along I think they are a much more balanced team with them apart but I don't see how their numbers are better not playing together. That makes absolute zero sense and sounds completely made up in my opinion.

I am assuming Adam was meaning that the top two lines have better numbers/production when McDavid and Drai are on different lines than when they are both on the same line. I will allow Adam (or anyone else) correct me about that, but that is how I interpreted Adams comment about numbers.

Maybe he did but he felt the need to correct me even when in my comment, I specifically said I think they are a far more balanced team with them apart. So maybe he didn't.

Adam is the supreme expert on all things Oilers and hockey in general so if he didn't mean them split up, what he says is correct.

I believe Adam prefers the title "Expert Supreme" :)

I really wish I had more faith in Nuge as a C on an offensive line, but we just can't seem to get there. I don't think Hyman is going to change that much.

Going from being a team that can create offense for 18 minutes 5v5 to 35+ makes such a huge different so many different ways. I don't get why our coaches always just end up resting on their hands with a 1 line team. Maybe some had an excuse with terrible depth, but we paid out the nose to try to fix that now.

I agree with you on Nuge. I have been saying it even before he was resign. He's a mediocre at best as a top 6 center but much better as a top 6 winger. The addition of Hyman and hopefully Yamo will be able to have a better season so it helps when they put McD and Leon together because it will happen but like I said, I think they are better as a team when they are a part.

If they are going to put McD and Leon together, I would drop JP down to help boost that second line as he's become a force.

I think one of the things you get wrong about this place, which puts you in a never-ending bad mood is that responding to your post doesn't mean I'm disagreeing with you or somehow putting you in your place. I actually agreed with a lot of your original point. You'll note, at no point did I address anything you asserted and say "you're wrong." It'll do wonders for you if you realize that not everything is a personal attack on you.

And I'm okay with being called Hockey Overlord if you must give me a title.

The WOWY numbers are out there. Look them up.

I also think that the comment from Perkele is correct as well - it's better for the team as a whole when we don't have a single line.

I don't know if this has been remarked upon, but I just noticed that the Oilers' schedule to start the season is incredibly soft. Here are their first 11 opponents:

Vancouver
Calgary
Anaheim
Arizona
Vegas
Philadelphia
Vancouver
Seattle
Nashville
NY Rangers
Detroit

Vegas is the only tough challenge there. Nashville is the only other team that even made the playoffs (barely) last year.

A fast start should be expected.

The Rangers should be better this year (maybe) but there are some benefits to being in the worst division in sport.


This is fine.

Adam and RDOF posts are always entertaining when they post separately, but when RDOF has his gears grinding due to Adam and they work together, it becomes spectacular.

Kr55 is a great complimentary poster, but he can rarely carry a thread by himself. No offence Kr55. You’re worth the 8 year extension.

Echoing your sentiments about KR55 being worth the 8 year extension. Glad MJ has no salary cap issues here.

Didn't KR55 used to be Oogba who created the unique scoring system in the score prediction contest? If so,I'd say he has earned that extension and can carry threads on his own despite all the antics of the 'bot.

There used to be a poster on the old Hockey Boards that went by the name koreaboy who had the same posting style.

Jeez, I think I've spent more time in the last quarter century doodling around the
newsgroups and hockey related boards than I have actually spent watching hockey games; time well wasted, I hope.

Guys honestly have me pegged here. Never been interested in being the center of attention ;) All about the hit and runs while the Adam's and RDO's run wild, haha.

And yeah that was my old handle. I recall arguing with someone about how it should be valued more that someone picked the right team to win first (before deciding what the score would be) than just guessing a correct score backwards icon_lol

I can barely hold my own beer anymore let alone carry a thread.

I’m now a GDT douche. There’s too many smart people here. And I’m not being facetious. The popcorn is good here too btw.

I love this site. I want to share it with other Oil fans, but I do not want to dilute the the talent. I’m the Kim Issel of OF and I’m okay with that. Whenever I need fanboy blind optimism I go to hfBoards.

So, in layman’s terms this means we have room to maneuver in-season and at the deadline. See ya 1st round pick this year and next years 2nd and 3rd. Hello rental goalie and reinforcement depth on the blue line.
