No Cups

Thought I would start a place where discussion of all things pre-season can happen.

Training camp roster has been released. 61 players will be in camp:

7 goalies: Koskinen, Stalock, Konovalov, Rodrigue, Smith, Kruger, Skinner

18 defensemen: Keith, Ceci, Russell, Koekkoek, Barrie, Nurse, Samorukov, Desharnais, Bouchard, Kemp, Kubicek, Niemelainen, Berglund, Lagesson, Kesselring, Broberg, Wanner, Kaldis

36 forwards: Turris, Ryan, Puljujarvi, Shore, Archibald, Benson, Hyman, Griffith, Malone, Cracknell, Draisatil, Holloway, Foegele, Gennaro, Perlini, Petrov, Kassian, Kambeitz, Rybinski, Englot, Soderlund, Brosseau, Bourgault, Esposito, Yamamoto, Hamblin, Safin, Chiasson (Jake not Alex), Lavoie, Marody, Tullio, Sceviour, McLeod, Maskimov, Nugent-Hopkins, McDavid


Some of these are injured (Holloway, Samorukov, Maskimov). Apparently Stalock has some medical condition that may cause him to miss much of the season. This could affect the goalie situation down in Bakersfield as well as the Oilers' fall back goalie plan.

Let the countdown to the starting roster begin.

Per Holland: Stalock out for the year with heart condition after getting COVID before last season started. Never felt right all last year. Reason he was just on the taxi squad all season.


One potential savior from the Smith/Kostko gang down

And Archie's an anti-vaxxer. Likely to miss at least 30 games.

Great job Josh. Just what the team needed, and anti-vaxx distraction.

I think you give him an ultimatum that he'll be the extra forward on the bus all year in bakersfield (or below) if he doesn't get the shot. You have to wonder about the value a depth player who acts this way brings to the team, missing so many games, possibly spreading misninformation at the same time. trade or put him on waivers to cancel his contract.



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

No hard feelings for the players choice, but this is a business.

Possibly miss 30 games? This player likely isn't a top 6 performing player. The only good option Holland has is the AHL.

Even then, what does it say about your concern for your AHL roster if you put that guy there?

I can't believe I overlooked that aspect. This isn't a great situation at all and I feel the player will only end up hurting himself here.

The organization won't hurt itself to respect the players beliefs and if they were that stupid, they would certainly hear about it.

I wonder what the rules are with respect to the NHLPA on this? Sounds like Bertuzzi is treated as suspended whenever the Red Wings are in Canada so he forfeits his salary, but I would think for someone like Rinaldo, assuming his deal is a one-way deal he gets his full ticket playing in the AHL. I doubt the PA will agree to let someone be terminated over it. Would be a bit dicey - although I do think there's an argument that you're protecting the majority that way, and do you really go out on a limb to save 2-3 guys who are so stubbornly anti-vaxx that they are going to let themselves be fired over it?

I thought it was a good question from the media this morning that every staff member working for the Oilers or in the arena needs to prove they're vaxxed, as does every attendee - except Josh Archibald does not!? How is that remotely fair to anyone?

This is so unfortunate. I don't know what the circumstances are of Archy not being vaccinated, but clearly it puts the team in a bad spot at different points and quite frankly it's not a good career decision for a bottom 6 forward. Wonder what happens next with Archibals here.

He has a Twitter handle that he rarely posts to, but literally half of his posts from the last 12-18 months are Covid conspiracy posts including sharing a clip from OAN. So I have some guesses as to why he isn’t vaccinated.

I thought it was already established that we have well defined tiers of people this org cares about to differing degrees.

I don't see any other alternative than demoting him. Not out of spite or to teach him a lesson or anything (though I'm a big baby and I would do it out of spite) You can't have him taking up a roster spot knowing he will be missing almost half of the team's games.

Kinda nice seeing McDavid having a top line with 2 guys that could actually contribute something on their own without needing Nuge or Drai. Jury out on Pulju, but if he worked on his finishing at all this summer, he could take a big step.

I am seeing tweets from Gregor and Rishaugh that Archibald is not listed to skate with the team. Looks as though the team is making their stance. You won't play with the team if you aren't vaccinated. The ball is in his court now.

My team doesn't do everything right, lord knows they screw up at times but it appears so far, they are doing the right thing when it comes to unvaccinated Archibald. The health, safety and lives of human beings is more important than hockey.

Plus optics. If you expect all fans to be vaccinated when you come into the building. If you expect the employees of OEG to be vaccinated, if you expect people who use the community arena to be vaccinated, it looks pretty crappy if you let and unvaccinated player get on the ice. I really hope they do not cave in on this and hold firm with Archibald. get vaccinated or you aren't part of this team anymore.

I do think it would be a little funny though if they had 16,000 vaccinated fans, two almost complete vaccinated rosters, including coaches, assistant coaches, etc. as well as the entire Rogers Place staff, but make an exception to get 40ish games of Archibald.

Didn't he take a bad penalty in the playoffs too? amazed he wasn't traded to Carolina.

That stupid penalty that helped tank the game for us was basically the only time you noticed Archibald that whole series. I have a grudge towards him more for that than this vaccination stuff to be honest :)

Kinda nice seeing McDavid having a top line with 2 guys that could actually contribute something on their own without needing Nuge or Drai. Jury out on Pulju, but if he worked on his finishing at all this summer, he could take a big step.


I am seeing tweets from Gregor and Rishaugh that Archibald is not listed to skate with the team. Looks as though the team is making their stance. You won't play with the team if you aren't vaccinated. The ball is in his court now.

My team doesn't do everything right, lord knows they screw up at times but it appears so far, they are doing the right thing when it comes to unvaccinated Archibald. The health, safety and lives of human beings is more important than hockey.

Plus optics. If you expect all fans to be vaccinated when you come into the building. If you expect the employees of OEG to be vaccinated, if you expect people who use the community arena to be vaccinated, it looks pretty crappy if you let and unvaccinated player get on the ice. I really hope they do not cave in on this and hold firm with Archibald. get vaccinated or you aren't part of this team anymore.

I do think it would be a little funny though if they had 16,000 vaccinated fans, two almost complete vaccinated rosters, including coaches, assistant coaches, etc. as well as the entire Rogers Place staff, but make an exception to get 40ish games of Archibald.

Didn't he take a bad penalty in the playoffs too? amazed he wasn't traded to Carolina.


That stupid penalty that helped tank the game for us was basically the only time you noticed Archibald that whole series. I have a grudge towards him more for that than this vaccination stuff to be honest :)


Terry Jones mentioned that today as a stupid selfish penalty...I believe it was the first mention of it by an Edmonton media type. When they're a valued energy player, they're sacred calves and can't be criticized for things like that, but it can always be filed away to be brought up if the player ever is traded or otherwise disgraced. It is vaguely reminiscent of how all the scribes suddenly found the bravery to call Eakins' practices stupid the second he was fired.

This could be a double edged sword... amazing for the season but could seriously inflate JP’s contract after the season.

If Holland is ‘forced’ to trade JP, I’m done as a fan. DONE I SAY. (No amount of Duncan Keith success as an Oiler will be able to repair my fandom if JP is dealt)

Crazy to think we would have to move JP in large part because we took Keith's full 5.5M for no good reason. How do you feel about that Oscargasm? icon_biggrin

I'm hoping to celebrate Archibald finally coming to the light, like Smith and Keith. That's the approach I'm going to take instead of 'what took him so long'. I know he's been pretty committed on his views on social media, but I'm hoping the punitive career implications bring him around. Lots at stake for him.

And shouldn't we all just view Duncan Keith as a sunk cost now? Sure he's old, declining, and not likely to be a great Oilers defenceman, but can't we all just put aside that we paid an awful lot to get him relative to the value he brings, and he has a ridiculously high cap hit for what he brings?

Group 2 this afternoon:

RNH - Draisaitl - Yamamoto
Foegele - Ryan - Kassian
Benson - McLeod - Marody
Hamblin - Cracknell - Griffith
Safin/Soderlund - Englot - Kambietz

Nurse - Barrie
Broberg - Berglund
Niemelainen - Kesselring
Wanner

Koskinen
Konovalov
Rodrigue



That 2nd and 3rd line could be our 3rd and 4th line. Foegele - Ryan - Kassian could be an actual good 3rd NHL line. 4th line missing the amazing Shore of course. Probably not enough gritensity. Marody out for Shore.

Gonna be honest. Been trying to not look at the D. Just in a mental state now that only forwards matter in hockey :)

Benson #16 looked good, he's faster than I remember, he's pretty noticeable out there..
same with Foegle.. stole the puck off both Ceci and Bouchard..

Benson is definitely more explosive getting up to speed, getting into the play going different ways from what I notice.

Seeing claims that TUrris is in great shape too. Says he was in Edmonton all summer working out and practicing almost every day. Would be nice if he could redeem himself this year, not holding my breath though.

I had no idea Turris was still on the team. For some reason, I thought he was gone this summer.

Every year, every player is reported to come to camp in the best shape of their life. It never means anything.

I bet Looch will be in the best shape of his life for the 5th straight season with the Lames this year :)
