4-0 Stars. Snicker.

Edit: 6-1. Seguin Hat trick, Benn with 5 points.

Can't handle the Stars top players.

Phoenix is having a pretty good year thus far. Sitting in 4th in a very tough Western Conference.

This place never ceases to amaze me.

LAK have 3 forward prospects playing for them this season, all drafted outside the first round, all drafted post 2010.

You know how many Oilers prospects picked outside the 1st round are playing in the line-up?

I agree that our drafting past the gimmies hasn't been good, but Pearson, Toffoli, and Vey have a total of 10 games between them (half of that coming from one player).

We've had twice that from an undrafted rookie, and both Lander and Pitlick have played in games this year as well (the same cup of coffee Vey and Person enjoyed for us).


I think supporting cast has a lot to do with it as well. It's a lot easier to play a 21 year old (Toffoli) in spot duty on your 3rd line when you can put him on the ice along side Mike Richards and roll out a top 6 of veteran players like Brown, Williams, Kopitar, Stoll, and Frattin.

To compare that to the Oilers' situation, our top 6 has names like Hall, Nuge, Eberle, Gagner, and Yakupov, all of whom would be the youngest forward on the Kings' roster (Gagner would be 2nd after Clifford). Does it make sense to bring in even younger players to play with them even if they're good enough for the NHL? Yes, some of it is the players, but some of it has to be opportunity and having a place to put them that makes sense.

But...but Calgary always "stays in it" and works hard!!

Actually, no. They're getting tuned.

Game in an game out.

(And to anyone responding with "But the Oilers suck!!", I ****ing know. It's an exclusive comment on the Flames, with no relevance to my thoughts on the Oilers. Your comment will be ignored.)

I said at the time!
Also. Look at this the other way. Nil dealt a 7th, which is pretty much useless an as asset, and he dealt a depth Dman that Dallas had in spades for a veteran C.
He also went out and got Peverley (another vet C) and Seguin (an up and coming potentially elite 1st line C).
He said Dallas needed depth at C and he went out and got 3.
That sounds decent, doesn't it ?

Toronto may have the toughest guys that don't back it up in Phaneuf and Kessel. They start stuff they can not finish and then the fans chant Sabres suck great.

Good God, Grabovski would've looked great in Oiler silks. Having a very good year in Wash. Good for him.

I really wanted MacT to get him nad several people mentioned it. Maybe they tried but he didn't want to come here?

That is what happens when you have a tough team and backup in Orr/McLaren. Kadri doesn't play like a wild man without those guys either.

The entire Eastern conference doesn't make the playoffs in the West if the cutoff was today.

The west has some ridiculously strong teams right now.
