Greiss

G Greiss was waived by the Sharks... We should snatch him and send down our own backups on waivers IMO...

Very interesting. I was under the impression that Greiss would be starting for SJ this season before they acquired Nitty and Niemi. Is Griess better than Dubnyk or JDD?

Even if management agrees with you (that Greiss is better), it will never happen. Call it po...li...tics.

For the love of god, would you people stop suggesting that we trade for ANOTHER goalie????

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that between Gerber, Dubnyk, Deslauriers and Khabibulin we will have at least two decent NHL goalies, and heck, maybe Bulin can return to championship form, it isn't impossible.

Still, we're probably not going to pick up an elite goalie off the waiver wire or by trade. I wish people would stop making these suggestions about things that are very, very unlikely.

With Greiss getting sent down, it's NOW time for management to send down their 3rd goalie!

If he does not get claimed, Tambs has to waive one of JDD or DD. It is the perfect time.

Fans are fans, and every time a players is available someone always mentions them in a post realistic or not. I was in the camp that all of our goalies were not great, but after that way Bulin played maybe I am wrong. I still am not sold with the others, but you can't expect a pickup without a cut and demotion and it seems unlikely, slow and deliberate Steve would do that.

Pick up Greiss, & waive any goalie who's last name starts with D

The hydra is slain, a better goalie rises from its corpse, and there's still a great insurance policy down on the farm.

NHL
Khabibulin 45-55 games
Greiss 25-35 games

AHL
JDD
DD
Gerber (give him the role of player/coach)

EHCL
Pitton

You can NEVER be too deep in the goaltending position

Imagine if the Oilers get Greiss and TSN is doing the Oiler broadcast, imagine the number of times we would have to hear McGuire say 'Greiss' in that annoying tone.

Based on that alone, No Greiss. >

Agreed Greiss is the better of the goalies and is younger.

I doubt JDD/DD get picked up.

Greiss is better then Dubnyk, Deslauriers, and Gerber. I would claim him but we already have too many goalies, maybe if we can dump one.

Damn, claim him. Immidiately!!!!!

Honestly, he's ways better than JDD, Dubnyk or Gerber.

As somebody said something about team politics. I can understand it somehow.
But nonetheless Greiss actually is too good to pass on him, even if team politics plays a role.

I think it'd be wise to claim this guy. Not only is he still very young but he actually has starter upside. He's clearly an upgrade on Dubnyk/Deslauriers and has more upside. If we're interested in upgrading our goaltending position this is as good of a chance as we'll get.

I'd bet my bottom dollar the Oilers won't claim him. By and large I like Tambellini, but the guy has this weird love affair with JDD/DD. It's as if he sees them both as these incredibly valuable and promising tenders. The completely inexplicable 3 headed monster because he's afraid to loose one of them to waivers? Please. There are far better goaltender prospects to be had for a song (or in Greiss' case, for free), for any other GM to give claiming on a second thought. Even if someone did claim one of them, players of the same or better caliber are easily available. Neither have shown themselves to be better than a run of the mill prospect at all levels of competition (CHL, AHL, NHL).

The Oilers are starting to do somethings right, but with the exception of Roli, their entire goaltending strategy has been, and continues to be incomprehensible.

Meh. Greiss is nothing special.

It's not like this is Bryzgalov we'd be passing on.

My thoughts exactly. There is zero chance anyone claims these guys with the other options available. I'm not saying Greiss will become the next Bryzgalov or Kiprusoff but he's at the very least a tempting option in the net and a quality backup with upside.

Greiss is as good or better than DD/JDD... send one of them down and pick up Greiss. Oilers won't though... they'll stick with their golden trio for whatever reason.

Well, Greiss cleared, so I guess it's pretty safe to send down one of the goalies...

I'd agree we should take action and move one ASAP to OKC.

Relax, running with three goalies has only cost us one cup so far. Which was nothing compared to the sting we would have felt losing Mike Morrison or Ty Conklin. So it's obviously better to keep all three right, since Goalies thrive off less playing/practice time.

Trust me this is the best way for two young developing goalies to reach thier potential. We proved that when we gave them no team to work with in the minors before. And again when we buried JDD under Roloson and Garon.

Management has proven they know how to handle goalies best, we should trust them to do the right thing and sign another big fish this offseason to be our starter.






Damn I don't know how much more whinning I can do in one post. Guess I'll find out when we see the next boneheaded move to deal with our stoppers
