....so the Oilers are facing a team that played last night in Vancouver, and will be facing a team that will probably play their backup (Cam Ward)...what could possibly go wrong???....

....Go Oilers!!!!!!!!!!....MOGA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

....(just on a side note ....why is it that NHL road teams playing the second back-to-back game so often have a strong finish to the second game???...adrenaline rush???....)

Caggiula was practicing on the 1st line again in case Rattie can't go.

Can't make this crap up people.

I am not advocating for Caggulia because I don't think it's a good idea but who else would you put there?

Yamamoto has been on that line for what 5 games now and hasn't pissed a drop.

JP can't even look good against 3rd liners right now so I sure wouldn't put him on McDavid's wing so he can go up against a teams best dmen and best players.

Chiasson has looked good with Leon and Leon has played well ever since he was put with Chiasson and for the Oilers to have success, you have to have his line going too. So I wouldn't break that up.

I sure wouldn't put Kassian on that line. He's a 4th liner and can't even look good doing that.

So who's left?

Probably just anyone but Caggiula. We have a piece of kryptonite that is able to turn McDavid into a replacement level performer, and we just choose to keep it as close to McDavid as we can.

If we absolutely cannot allow Pulju anywhere close to McDavid for non-"trying to win games" reasons, then I'd probably give Chaisson a shot for a bit.

I would love if JP was with McDavid when he is ready. Right now he is struggling. So I don't see how putting JP on a line so he can see a steady diet of the Toews line along with Keith helps him find some kind of game.

I am of the opinion for each line, you find a good pair that works well together, then look for a 3rd piece that can compliment them. Hopefully Rattie is ready to go because so far, no one else has worked.

Every time Pulju has played with McDavid the ice has been heavily tilted in our favour (the opposite of what happens with Caggiula). But then he makes 1 bad play or takes a bad penalty, or maybe talks to mcLellan with bad grammar and it's over. While a guy like lucic can be a boat anchor attached to McDavid's hip for 2 months getting absolutely nothing done, embarrassing himself night after night until he finally scores a fluke goal on a set goalie from 40 ft out.

McLellan just likes to dangle that carrot in front of Pulju and Pulju's reaction when he reaches out to grab it and McLellan snatches it away displeases Todd.

Given the players on the roster, not taking into account any development, who's ready etc I think the only option is JP.

I agree with everything you say about every one of our RW's and I think every opinion is spot on including JP in past posts that he should likely get some top minutes in the AHL.

The fact is that he is on the roster and should pretty much be given the chance on the top line by default.

TM has shown that there is no earning it, everyone seems to get a chance.
He has shown that there is no problem with an underdeveloped youngster there as Yamo got a crack.
The fact that Cags is even being considered shows that recent performance isnt a factor.

JP hasnt paid his dues, played his way onto it and is a young guy who needs development. Seems to check all of the boxes that has given others 1st line RW time.
At this point, with Rattie out what do they have to lose? Worst case scenario he doesnt do well and they take that as the turning point to send him down.
Best case it clicks and they are a better team.

One day it'll happen I think. Todd will just stick him in the top 6 and he'll produce like he did before any time he was given a reasonable amount of time to get comfortable in an offensive role. And I'm sure Todd will happily take all the credit for what Pulju does in that spot. Never woulda done it without papa Todd.

Heck, I would give him a check box on the positive side of the ledger if he gave it a try and it worked.
Even if it didn't, and then he was then sent down I would praise the move. I would like a 5 game, regular shift try of it before calling a failure, but then at least we could see SOMETHING to try and get JP producing. Put him in a place to succeed, if he fails, send him down.

Same goes with my wanting to see him get a few game stretch on PP one. Give it a try, whats the worst that happens?

Would be a submission by McLellan. He's fully dug in. Pulju has to show the required effort the required way in a grinder role. He should be studying Caggiula video to figure it out.

So someone tweeted the following:

Which stats belong to these players?
At 5x5
JF Jacques 08-11
Milan Lucic 16-present day

0.58 goals/60
1.11 pts/60
18 hits/60

0.42 goals/60
1.21 pts/60
12 hits/60


Yet he still remains on the first PP unit for tonight as far as we know.

So someone tweeted the following:

Which stats belong to these players?
At 5x5
JF Jacques 08-11
Milan Lucic 16-present day

0.58 goals/60
1.11 pts/60
18 hits/60

0.42 goals/60
1.21 pts/60
12 hits/60


Yet he still remains on the first PP unit for tonight as far as we know.


As long as he's filling his quota of brutal giveaways when he gets the puck just inside our blue line, I think he's got that #1PP spot locked down.

One thing Cagulla does well is shoot the puck when he has a chance to score instead of overthinking things and deferring to McD.( there's a weak positive for you ) I would much rather have Puli... there to give him a chance to get a flow going and start gaining more confidence and the experience that leads to it, but the coach continues to jerk him around and if he keeps it up we might just waste another potentially good one. If Todd was delegated to ride the pine by Chiarelli after every loss due to his coaching blunders, he'd be pretty busy just picking splinters out of his as and his confidence would be at an all time low. So what's best for the team is losing to Minnesota apparently.

I'm beginning to think the "brain"trust is actually trying to sewer his numbers wit. bonuses and future contracts. I suspect they may wait until the last quarter of the season to give him a good spot so he can't pile up significant numbers. I wouldn't put it past those bozo's, but with the more likely result that they depress his confidence so much his agent asks for a trade....
