Theo Peckham

Well one game so far. How did he look? Solid minutes.
Does the coach like him? Will he play more now? Next game?
He certainly adds toughness somthg oilers need.
Thoughts?

He was decent enough .. made a few mistakes.. took a penalty and played a small role in a goal against.. but other than that a solid first game.. Hopefully he clicks with Fistric and forms a scary pairing.

Him and Fistric didn't properly communicate on the first Cullen goal but he wasn't horrible overall. Having him and Fistric together as a pairing isn't really NHL caliber though since neither of them skates or moves the puck well enough.

Peckham is bad and being about the 6th Dman on the Oilers means you would be in the AHL for most teams.

He played a lot, 18 minutes which is a bit shocking. Long-term him and Fistric can't be a pair, but short term it's better than throwing Whitney or Potter in who make similar mistakes but do nothing else to help the team.

yeah i thought that the first minny goal was mostly peckham's fault, but all in all he played okay... nothing great, but nothing too terrible either

peckham is what he is a bottom pairing guy who can PK a little and add some grit... that's about it

Did he look out of shape or a bit heavy? How was his skating?

Not an NHL player, so slow, takes forever to make decisions and awful hockey sense getting caught in no-mans land more than the other d-men combined.

Better than Whitney and Potter. Hit knows his role well but I'm not sure have two big meanies on the same pairing. Rather Peckham with Smid or Petry.

He is 235lbs according to Gene. Looked like himself. I suspect the Oilers want him to lose some weight yet.

Didn't think he looked bad. Kept it simple, played the body. Pretty much what you want from a bottom pair guy.

I didn't yell at the TV because of him or Fistric.

Which means they are both better than Whitney/Potter.

Thing is Whitney or Potter probably would've made an equally as bad play. The real problem is having no one that is meant to be an everyday #5.

He played a good bottom pairing game other other than a bad penalty and him and Fistric getting crossed up on the goal. Though he looked much faster than previous years out there as well.

When the oilers came out and played deadfish in the first - Theo's gotta realize its time to go pick a fight. That's why he's in the lineup. Provide toughness, a spark, something emotional. When he understands this role, and can read the game well enough to assert his role, he can be a regular on this team.

I disagree. That's Eager's job. Peckham's job is to play a mean, physical game and stick up for guys when something goes down. Not to go pick random fights. I'd rather we keep all 6 dmen available when possible

Big hit would've worked. We played with a spark when Fistric set the pace on first play of game. We also played with that same spark when Eager crushed Brodin in the 3rd.

Big hit to get the fans back into probably does just as much for the team. On the road maybe a bit of a different story.

He's not bad, but he's a No.6 d-man ideally, and we have another of those who is better (Fistric). If we add another top four guy, Peckham is on the outs

Why? It makes a lot more sense to keep him as the #7 and sub him in if we need some extra toughness or when someone gets hurt

We have a guy like him in the system in Colten Teubert, so if we ended up getting a top four D, I think we'd have to go with Potter as our No.7 and then Teubert as the 8.

Peckham and Whitney would be gone

I thought he played a solid game and was our 2nd best d'man last night. J.Schultz had an off night. N.Schultz was horrid. Fister was the best D'man all night. Anyhow, back on topic. Peckham was pretty good. Was slow but played smart and very physical. Aside from his one penalty, he did better than expectations. I'd like to see how long he can keep it up for.

Peckham is a huge addition to the line up if he returns to the player he was before the Horton fight.

I loved his game for the most part.

He had a couple defensive gaffes which I think is all but expected now with the type of player he is but he was extremely physical, knocking people over, and throwing the puck on net.

Not much more you can ask for from your #7 D-Man
