I'm glad both these guys are putting up points for some much needed secondary scoring (unfortunately we now need some primary scoring too :S)

MPS is playing really good this season, however is it me or Maggies wrist shot is not as heavy as it was back in his rookie season. I've been watching some of the older PVR games that i have recorded and its night and day.

His wrist shot changes game to game. He had some heavy ones early this year, and then he had some real floaters as well.

The abundance of 'playing good' vs 'playing well' is pissing me right off.

PRV had been playing well before he had gotten to play with Gagner this season.

It has to do with the coaching staff, and culture in OKC. They are there to win, but also develop, and Harski/PRV/Lander all played completely differently this season, and I'd say a lot of the credit has to go to the OKC staff.

He's always been comfortable playing with Samwise.

I love Mag, it's awesome to see him doing well and i'm having fun watching him develop. To date, he's my favorite of all the kids. Not because i think he's better than any of them, but he possesses a favorable skillset that is NECESSARY for a winning team.

He's got wheels, willingness to go into corners, can carry in the puck if necessary, an OK shot, and is defensively responsible.

All of these things are still raw, and obviously he's a work in progress...


That being said I'm glad we have him and i hope we treat him as being "untouchable" like our other star kids.

It may take a little longer for him, but i really believe he has a place with us longterm.

He has.

They're a pairing that should never be split up.

But knowing Krueger....

Paajarvi is an interesting project with some nice tools. Might never end being more than 3rd liner or might put it together in his mid-20s and become a dominant player--whose flashes we saw during his rookie year.

I was going to say the same thing. He's working hard and getting/creating some chances, but I'd still like to see him use his body more. He does the passby too much.

Don't take this the wrong way but "flashes" of "dominance" would be an oxymoron contextually speaking. Because they are flashes.

For instance one could say Dustin Penner was dominant with the Oilers one year because he consistently dominated. It isn't anything to do with domination if occurs only fleetingly.

just saying

Some players will decided to bring it regularly often enough and some won't. At this point its still hard to tell although obviously I hope Paajarvi continues trajectory he's on.

As long as theres no Omark brown bread I'm fine with this sandwich.

I think he must be watching that new VIKINGS series on the history channel. Probably made his nuts drop. I agree he he has been good and making steady progress. Its nice to see.

Paajarvi on the LW, Gagner on the C, and Yak on the RW.

Hard concept to get I know, but maybe they could try it?

Amazing what can happen when players actually play the positions they're supposed to play (MPS on the L, Yak on the R)

I see I'm not the only one thinking this...



He seems to have chemistry with Gags and Yak. It'd be nice if they could stay together, as that line is a bit like a Swiss Army knife

The Oilers coaching staff who seem hell bent at turning Yakupov into a left winger makes me wonder that Management has no plans in moving Hemsky.

That line has all the tools. 2 wingers with great speed, one defensively very responsible, one has a boatload of offensive talent, the center is a playmaker, good offensively. MPS has the size and tendency to be infront of the net now, Yak could be told to let shots go more often as its his best asset. Gagner would be the cerebral player he is and be in the right place at the right time. Only drawback is Gagner being bad on the draw, but hopefully he can continue to better in that.

Agree.. glad he's finally getting some recognition. I think he's a key piece.

Can play on a skill line or a checking line. He has good size and great wheels. Can PK or play a little PP. Can grind/cycle down low in the offensive zone.


The bonus is that he shouldn't cost too much to re-sign.

English is not my native language, so I am not going to argue this one. Basically, what I meant is not that Paajarvi was a dominant player during his rookie year, but that he showed at the time that one day he could turn into such a player.

Didn't mean anything by it, sorry if it came off wrong.

I hope Paajarvi can dominate. I don't think thats the case but I think he could be the guy that springs regularly to create some offense that with his speed and good puck sense is hard to shutdown. He's kind of like a Jones with a better shot and better hands when he has the confidence.

No worries. I agree essentially. I'd be quite happy if Paajarvi develops into all around better, more productive Jones. Such a player is nice to have.

Really pulling for MPS. He looks like he is getting comfortable out there.

Krueger clearly doesn't play NHL13.

TWF + PLY + SNP

It's basic stuff.

Our lines last game were the perfect EA sports chemistry model, which is why we won
