I see someone's been reading the WPG-COL thread, that was a thread worthy of a couple of laughs.

It's weird that winning the lottery has given the majority of the EDM fans delusions of grandeur. Omark=Kulemin, Seimens is regressing, etc. etc.

Johnson is a #3 d-man, Dubnyk = Varmy, etc.

Dubnyk = Varly? Where was this? I don't want to miss a gem of a thread like that.

I think it was in the lottery GDT thread. Some Oiler fan was comparing their stats and saying that if the Oilers need a new goalie then the Avs need a new goalie also.

Oiler fan are ridiculous. Its gonna be a long summer of reading their garbage before they get put in their place next season.

Dubynk>Varlamov
Smid,Petry>EJ
Basically everyone on their team> Colorado.

They'll no doubt have the higher scorers for the next few seasons, but I can't ever see them winning more games than Colorado.

There's no point in getting upset about what they're saying. You know someone's delusional and clueless when he says that Petry is as good as EJ.

You shouldn't judge a fan base from what the most delusional members think.

But generally, after three-four super ****** years, they are pretty invested in the current path taking them to greatness so they tend to overrate the impact prospects will have, more so than other fan bases.

I view their posts as entertainment.

That Eskimo44 character is quite amusing. I haven't seen someone so delusional and out of touch with reality since Zeus3007 claimed that Belanger is a better player than O'Reilly before the season started.

He's arguing that Dubnyk is just as good as Varlamov because he posted similar numbers playing behind a worse defense and at the same time he argues that Smid is clearly better than EJ and that Petry is as good as EJ who was our best defensman.


I also like how he included Hejduk in our core going forward, but Mueller isn't in that core because of injury issues, also there's no mention of Downie or McGinn.

Meh, I don't take Oiler fans seriously. I use it for entertainment like Freudian said.

Oiler fans like to compare stats but also whenever somebody says that their player sucks the Oilers fans say that, that person doesn't watch enough Oiler hockey. But the Avs fans can't use the same argument because it's all about the stats.



Also the Oilers are now my 2nd most hated team behind the Canucks. Even Canucks fans weren't this cocky when they sucked so I don't want to see Oilers fans when they become good.

Just remember these are the same arguments Oilers fans had last year. Anyone with a brain could see they would be a garbage team.

When you have that much hype around 4 players, you can simply ice the hype on D and be a dynasty.

I understand the Petry, Smid > EJ now. He looks at stat sheet, not the games because he said we rode Quincey, and the Hejda-O'Brien pairing.

I didn't really know where to post this, so I thought I'd do it here.

But, until now unbeknownst to me, Alex Bourret has been playing for my local CHL (Central Hockey League) team the Wichita Thunder

http://www.wichitathunder.com/alexbourret.html

And the games I've seen him in he's not been too bad actually, I can't believe that he's not ever gotten a taste of the NHL after being drafted 16th overall in the '05 draft.

The Thunder had the best record in the CHL this year and are in their Conference Finals, I went to tonight's game, an 8-1 drubbing they gave the Texas Brahmas, Bourret had 1g (SHG) and 2 assists and was named the 1st star of the game.

Anytime he was on the ice he looked dangerous, and was exceptionally fast and played with an edge, delivering some nice hits all game. The only knock I would say, is that he would sort of "cherry pick" in my opinion, always playing w/ part of his body slanted toward the offensive end of the ice.

I was dying to see Bourret in the NHL. Around draft time I think he was listed at 5'8" and well over 200lbs. I read his conditioning was bad and his attitude wasn't great, which made me want to see him play even more.

I was looking at Buffalos stats and it says that Hodgson played 63 games with the Canucks and 20 with the Sabres....They gave him an extra game?

That's entirely possible. With some teams (like the Avs) playing a lot of their games early and other (like the Sharks) playing a bunch late it's easy to see one player getting over 82 games if he were shipped from one team to the other. Pretty sure Daniel Winnik played 84 games this season.

I also heard that Hodgson played the most road games in one season ever. I think it was 44.

My favourite part other than the Luongo trade is that they have Stewart and Staz yet they don't play on the same line.
