You know how these work. If some big happens make a new thread, but if you’ve got some random chatter about something or someone or some game, this space is for you.


This is fine.

Since this is about other teams, MUST LOSE.

Nothing big but I saw Lucic played less than 9 minutes. 17 PIMS. -1. Anyone see the crapshow live?

17 PIMs? That's a lot of heart and grit.

And I believe the Avs scored on the instigator penalty. So in a way he was -2. Classic Looch.

Sucker punched Zardorov (not that hard, Zadorov was fine) for making hit on a flames 4th liner that played 3 minutes. Not sure why they called it a fight at all.

Calgary media were raving about how that means teams won't mess with their players anymore and what a strong message Lucic just sent.

I know you are being sarcastic and that fighting face to face doesn't mean much in the big picture. But, I have to point out that Lucic's punch was a sucker punch on a guy that wasn't even looking at him at the time.

Now THAT, that is how you earn respect.

Like when Lucic did it to Mike Smith a couple seasons ago. That lead to our dominant 18/19 season.

Or when he fought Engelland in his first game as an Oiler - critical to getting McDavid the space he needed so no one else thought about touching him for the entire 2015-16 season!

Krueger gets his 1st win. Destroyed the Pens 5v5, 11 high danger chances to 1.

Will be kind of annoying if Buffalo leaves us in the dust finally after our years of tank battling.

So Lucic had just over 8 mins in ice time. Now his 17 mins in PIMS may have played a part. But he was -1, no shots, 2 hits, 17 PIMS, a sucker punch. He did stand up for his teammate after he took a clean body check. So I guess the team is "tougher" but all his toughness and nastiness resulted in a 5-3 Flames loss.

Hmmm..... sounds familiar.

Flames fan consensus appears to be that Lucic did more last night than Neal did all of last season.

This may be true. Neal was pretty stinky last year.

Except...Lucic did nothing except be scored on and have 30% corsi. He was also an idiot on the 6 on 5 being his super slow perimeter self, telegraphing slow passes.

Sucker punches that do no actual damage must have really gone up in value this last summer :)

Many an Oilers fan said the same thing for 3 years to try to justify his existence. I admit, I did that. Not much else I could do. They will get pretty tired of that quickly.

I actually thought Neal was alright. 2 shots, 4 hits. I saw him come back and break up several passes. He made a couple of nice passes to set up a few guys.

I didn't mind the Nygard - McDavid- Neal line. I thought Nygard got better as the night went on. He's definitely fast and the Canucks were definitely wary of it which is a good thing. Neal sent him in one time and they tried a couple other times. The line didn't produce a ton but as I said and other media guys reported it, McDavid looked rusty and tentative which has to be expected. It doesn't matter who's on his line except maybe Leon, if McDavid is fighting the puck, that line won't do anything because everyone will give him the puck constantly and he was fighting the puck big time for 2/3 of the game.

I'd like to see them stick with that line for a bit because I think it makes the team stronger having Leon and McDavid split up for the most part.

Gags+Manning buyout calculator:

Y1 Cap hit: 3.15M + 2.25M = 5.4M
Y1 Buyout Caphit = 1.02M + 0.92M = 1.94M
Y1 Savings: 3.46M

Y2 Buyout Caphit = 1.02M + 0.67M = 1.69M (vs Sek being 2.5, 1.5, 1.5 for years 2,3,4)


Both cap hits gone year 3.


Was just pondering this after I checked Sek's first game for Dallas (and now that we know we have little use for Gagner as well as Manning). 28% offensive zone starts. 5v5 shots 12 to 5 in Dallas' favour, high danger chances 4 to 1. He had a solid game with 21 mins of ice time. He is probably not very broken anymore :(

Yes but nobody could have known he would ever play again. The human body completely stops healing after the age of thirty. Sekera is a medical marvel.

Yes but nobody could have known he would ever play again. The human body completely stops healing after the age of thirty. Sekera is a medical marvel.


Kind of annoying that we got to see him look fine at the worlds before the buyout. Buyout Gagner out was probably not even considered since Bobby Nicks couldn't stop raving about his culture powers.

Bleh. Would feel better if we actually got a top 6 winger with the savings, but now this all just seems lame, especially since Tippett decided he has no use for Gags.

Gags+Manning buyout calculator:

Y1 Cap hit: 3.15M + 2.25M = 5.4M
Y1 Buyout Caphit = 1.02M + 0.92M = 1.94M
Y1 Savings: 3.46M

Y2 Cap hit: 3.15M + 2.25M = 5.4M
Y2 Buyout Caphit = 1.02M + 0.67M = 1.69M
Y2 Savings: 3.71M

Both cap hits gone year 3.

You can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you just might find, you can get a lottery pick.

The Flames have a article about Lucic on the front page of their team page called "Sending a Message". Full on hard sell.

I want the OIlers to do well but just knowing he's gone, really makes me happy.

Lucic's sucker punch totally changed the game! I.e. we allowed the game winning goal against a minute later.

Devils looking like trash so far this season. Just all out gamble offense and no defense. And Hall just got destroyed with a hit (he was trying to throw the hit but got stood up) and left the game, likely concussion.

Edit: Hall came back.

Team Krueger in beast mode

Wierd sequence in the Habs Leafs game.
Habs on PP and Petry takes a point shot. Kapanen blocks it and in the process breaks his stick. He tosses the half in his hands towards the Petry where the puck had gone back to.

Thrown stick means a penalty shot but has to be taken by the player who had the puck. Petry takes it and scores to tie it up.

I have seen a thrown stick penalty shot before but never when it wasnt a breakaway.

Throwing a broken stick at an opposing player with the puck is pretty egregious. I can't believe he did that. It was also an interesting discussion on whether that ended the power play of not.

I remember Smyth did it a long time ago in the defensive zone.

omg, the Kings play exactly like we did, it's amazing. Everything along the boards. Stationary wingers just inside the blue line waiting for it to get to them.

There was a glove pass that lead to the flames tying goal. McLellan doesn't bother to review. Maybe he didn't know the new rules. I think Tkachuk's high stick of the puck could have been challenged to as it should have caused a stoppage in play.

Maybe he was afraid of insulting the refs by asking for a review. We do know that he thinks they need to be treated with kid gloves at all times...

Marleau rejoins the Sharks. One year deal at $700K. Not a bad add at that price. He still had 16 goals and 37 points with Toronto last year.

Hate to see a rival get stronger, but it makes sense for Marleau to go back there for a victory lap before he calls it a career.

Have to wonder if this is the last year for Thornton there too and if we'll see the #1 and #2 picks from the 1997 draft bow out together...

Good thing LaBanc gave a discount! LaBanc starts his discount contract season with 0 points and -7 in 4 games.

I assume Doug Wilson is still gonna make it up to him and pay him make up money for his breakout season last year :) (he probably won't).

Haha...poor guy. It would be a nice warning for others planning to take that one year discount if he gets hammered for a poor season...

Those shot rates...wow.

He was falling off a cliff on shots/game the last couple years, but right now he'd be on pace for 20 SHOTS on the season. He'll be lucky to score any goals if that doesn't turn around.

So long third round pick...

Hey. Francis now says that no one can judge this trade until the playoffs. And he added "if the Oilers even make it".

it would be funny of Neal had more goals than Lucic had shots on net.

I am not sure if the Oilers will make the playoffs. I think they will be in the mix, more so than last year but lots of things have to go right for them to make it.

The Flames had 107 pts last year. Unfortunately, right now thanks to the sin of previous management, the Flames overall are a deeper team than the Oilers. I think the Flames take a step back but they probably aren't taking a 20+ pt step back to fall out of the playoffs

But by Francis's logic. Neal could score 30 goals, the Oilers be 1 point behind the Flames for the final spot. Lucic scores 5 goals, really not doing a damn thing to help the Flames and yet the Flames win the trade?
