Sorry I wasn't around the other two games. I have been having major CPU issues - I'm actually borrowing a friends keyboard right now to be typing at all.

I watched both other exhibition games, and feel that we're playing okay so far. I *love* the fact that Daniel scored. I was to see a lot of of the Sedin's on the scoresheet in the pre-season. Many of us wish good things on one player or another - mind are the Sedin's by a longshot.

Anyhow, the Oilers should be a good match. I'll be listening to them tonight on Edmonton Radio against the Flames. They tied 3 - 3 in their first game against the Flames, so we'll see how this second one goes.

lol, I'm doing that too. I found myself rooting for the sedins more than the canucks (if that makes any sense..hey it's the preseason). It would be tremendous if they could finally have a breakout year and turn into a legitimate second liners.

The Flames dressed most of their regulars while the Oil presented a minor league team.

It wasn't just a minor league team...it was the Charlestown fricking Chiefs. Was NOT pretty.

You knew things were going downhill on a particle accelerator when Bryan Allen left the game with his bell rung in the 2nd period, then shortly after another Oiler Dman got a game misconduct, leaving 4 dmen...and two of those being Scott Ferguson and Rocky Thompson. Bad mojo.

I sure hope the Oilers kick it up 4 or 5 notches on monday, if not it's going to be a slaughter.

Iginla has looked very good the last two games against Edmonton, that's for sure. The whole MCI line looks like they're in 01/02 form already. As for the rest of the team...who knows?

Couple of points about this game.

1. Will Koltsov or Vydarney get in. The Canucks obviously decided that Koltsov has no chance of playing in Vancouver so may just decide to relegate him to Manitoba with no pre-season Canuck action. If Vydarney doesn't play it is also an indication that he will not get a look this year. I would be in favour of giving each at least one game.

2. What about Justin Morrison. Is he he still hurt. Does he get a shot.

3. I think Allen should replace Ohlund in this game. They need to give Allen a very good look. They need to assess if he can play in Vancouver this year.

4. Also I wonder if Hedburg is ready. If not I get Moss and McVicar back in there for another look. Auld should be quickly assigned to Manitoba where he will obviouly play this year.

5. I hope in the next few games they don't play Cooke, Chubarov, the Sedins or Linden much and instead concentrate on Bouck, Kesler, Keane, Fedorov, King and Reid. The Canucks need to guage where these bubble players are in terms of the their NHL potential. They can use the last few exhibition games to get the first team in there and tune up for the season.

Mizral
09-21-2003, 07:38 AM
Personally, if I'm coach..

I play Cloutier again with Moss or McVicar (probobly Moss). I would want to get a few games in early in the preseason for Cloutier, and let him sit out the last two or three games where Hedberg & others can play.

I would play the crap out of the Sedin's. In fact, I would make them my top line every 2nd night at least. Maybe more than that.

Finally, I would not play Ohlund much at all, and as you say, play Allen, but also Slegr a fair lot.

Both teams will have their top players.

The game is in Edmonton; their first home game of the season and the crowd will be a big factor.

Should be a really good tilt but I think I'll give the edge to Edmonton and predict a 4-3 win for them.

According to the Sun, Nolan and Vydarney get a shot tonite. However no mention of Koltsov. Koltsov may be a dog fight to get a spot on the Moose. Maybe ends up in the ECHL.

Also I think the Sedins are on the other half of the split squad and will play in Calgary tomorrow. After tommorrow I would guess that most of the split squad in Calgary will be assigned to the Moose.

orcatown
09-22-2003, 03:04 PM
Should also add the Canucks intend to go all the way with Cloutier tonite. McVicar will be given no more exhibition action. Also Hedburg has returned to Vancouver to have his cut dealt with.

I like to see McVicar more but the move makes snense. He's not going to stay here. However he should be given every chance to battle Auld for the position in Manitoba.

Also Moss should be given every chance. I hope he goes the distance tomorrow against the Falmes. He's at stage in his career where he may emerge. If he does the Canucks have another value asset. This could be important since some teams (see Boston) are in need of help in the goal.

Koltsov cannot be sent down to the ECHL. His contract is a two way contract, and he has the option of going back to Russia and Avangard Omsk before they send him to the ECHL. I believe if they were to do that, he would definitely return to Russia, and it would be a giant headache to get him to come back over again. Plus he definitely has the talent to play in the AHL right now, so I don't see how they would want to send him down to the ECHL, it would be pointless for him and his development.

Penalty killing sounding extremely strong thus far, good short-handed efforts from Bouck, Kavanagh, Smith, Ohlund, Allen and...Jokela(?)

We've been able to kill of the majority of their chances simply with AHL PK lines. Excellent sign.

Allen has sounded firm outside the initial lapse in the first and one undisciplined penalty. Jovo has been having a good game...Nazzy and Bert fairly invisible.

Very true. I'm glad the Oilers won tonight (finally), but this game + 25 cents won't buy a jolly rancher come October. It's all about evaluation and working the kinks out of systems. I'm sure Naslund and Bert will be playing like Naslund and Bert once the games start to matter, just like every other team and their veterans who're only trying to get warmed up and stay away from injuries.

Still, it was nice to see Hemsky remember how to shoot the puck again.

Edit: Didn't Shorty say that the 'Nucks were wearing their "road whites" tonight? Sure doesn't look like it. :confused:

Cloutier got the third star of the game and Jovo played pretty solid from what I heard.

But like someone said earlier, the top line will start showing up in the regular season. It is just a pre season game... nothing counts, and the guys know it. I'm sure they were just playing around. I wouldn't lose any sleep over it.

Ick. A good showing from Cloutier is about all we can take away from this.

Well, that and the PK looked good.

But seriously, couldn't get anything going offensively. Needs to change.

I feel so betrayed. :mad:

BTW: anyone care to explain that bizzare goaltending change when Vics frozen body made it to the net just in time to let in the second goal?

Just finished watching some of the TV highlights, and the Oilers were in their dark uni's...not sure where your picture came from...

However, I know where THIS picture came from:

I was wondering that myself. It was probably to check Cloutier's equipment or something. :dunno:

And our PK was awsome tonight. I would have liked it better if we didn't take so many penalties... but it's good to know that our PK was solid.

Can someone tell me why Dan Cloutier is playing so much in the pre-season? i guess it is just weird to me because Burke has mentioned all summer that he is trying to find some way to decrease the burden on Cloutier so Cloutier will be 100% heading into the playoff but Cloutier played the whole game tonight with 7 pre season games to go. For example, Tommy Salo only played half of the game tonight.

He played 1 1/2 periods in the opener, and basically the full game tonight, aside from that PP switch. How is that overworking him? He had 3 full days of rest between outings.

Oops, wrong pic. Take two!

BTW, to make up for my mistake, I've decided to let Spiny free. He was starting to irritate my bridgework anyway. :)

Sportsnet: "The Oilers were dead last on the PP at home last year, through the first 2 periods it looked liked they picked up where they left off last year... until the 3rd period where they scored one on a 5 on 3 PP..." 1 for 10... only scored on a 5 on 3... on a team on an off night... in a preseason game... on a minor league tender. Big deal.

30 minutes per game is about right, i don't see the point of playing him the whole game tonight (Why risk injury when the game is not important and half of the game is enough to keep Cloutier sharp?), than again Crawford is known of mishandling of goalie schedule which has contribute to two seasons which the starting goalie has been injuried heading into the playoff. It is definately a situation that is interesting, but on the positive note Canucks have Hedberg if Crawford manages to mishandle Cloutier again.

How is playing a goalie for one whole game risking injury? I want Crow to handle Cloutier better this season, but not treat him like a toddler. Dan can handle playing a whole game. It won't hurt him.

Cloutier was cramping up, so they called him to the bench to see how he was doing.

Much likes the NFL pre-season, you see valuable players such as Vick get injuried. The pre-season games can get rather nasty consider a lot of young players are trying to make a name for themselves and it is a norm that the starting goalie will player about half of the game in most case especially in the beginning of the pre-season. And since you have a lot goalies in the camp likes Auld and Moss, why not play them more to get them more NHL experience and attention from other NHL teams in the case of Moss. Beside there is absolutely no point to play your #1 goalie too much early on in the season, in the last several years you see how the #1 goalie that has to carry majority of the load in the pre-season and regular season completely broke down in the playoff in the cases of Turco which sustained an ankle injury, and Patrick Roy for the last several seasons, especailly the Game 7 in the West Final against Detriot. Or what about Sean Burke who was amazing until he been injuried due to the overload of work before that. There are a lot of examples. i mean it is easier for the forward or defenceman to get through a 82 games and 10 pre game seasons, but consider how active the goalie is today with the addition of clear the puck before the net etc........ It is rather risky to play a goalie close to 60 games a season without counting those meaningless pre-seaon games as well. i guess i am just worry that this game will serve as a preview that Crawford has not changed much in the regard of his terrible goalie scheduling.

Glad I only had to listen to and not watch that travesty.

Obviously the only guys trying were the prospects and they couldn't get much done.

I found Cloutier and Jovo to be quite solid and nothing led me to believe Allen was incredibly shakey after the initial slip up.

Bad effort overall...other then on our PK, which seems to be what Crow was working on tonight with some of the prospects getting rounds out there.

No worries, we'll sweep the Oiler's in the regular season like last year. :yo:


:) Not this year westcoast... I think you'll be seeing that combination of Hemsky and Smyth on a few more scoresheets this year. Better get used to it. ;)

Its because he needs the practice (remember the playoffs?).
