Sounds like your buddy knows his stuff.

Nice prediction too.

Hell of a game by the Kings. Reinhart and Lazar showed tonight why they're the WHL's top players at their respective positions; the third line of Kieser, Bertolucci and Eller was outstanding again; Jarry had a massive bounce-back performance. The Kings showed the resiliency of a true champion tonight. Moroz's interview was onion-chopping territory.

Huge props also need to be given to Hansch. He identified Orban (who was quietly effective this series), Kieser and Petryk as guys who could be had for cheap and would fit well into the team's structure.

Really terrible performances by Dumba and Leipsic all series. Dumba scored some big goals, but made countless defensive gaffes in games 3-7. Leipsic's performance (and Portland's top offensive guys in general- Petan and Bjorkstrand, I'm looking @ you) was one I was especially surprised by- the number of stupid penalties and the lack of offense from him was confounding (though welcomed!).

Give 'em hell in London boys!

Gutsy win, great 2nd period.

Kings won this game on the counter. This is textbook good D creating good offence. Portland gave us way too much in our line rushes after turning pucks over in NZ.

One team playing smart hockey the other low percentage gamblers.

Dumba was just awful. lol that the Oil Kings were pretty specifically exploiting him much of the game and seemed to target his side to take the game to. It was interesting.

Oil Kings made Dumba look stupid a dozen times in the game.

I definitely want to see Laxdal as an assistant coach or similar with the Oilers.
The sum total of the posts in the entire thread made were mocking the team and the result from yesterday's game.......

The ridicule is well earned.

alot of kudos to the coaching staff. they made the adjustments after game 2, and were the better team from the 2nd period of game 3.

btw, they won the rubber match. Eat it Portland!!!!

Have to say four people cost this series for the Hawks:

Mike Johnston, Brendan Leipsic, Matt Dumba and Brendan Burke.

Leipsic and Dumba were just awful. Leipsic was just not as composed as he normally is and Dumba... lol.

I thought the coach made a great move pulling Boes in favour of Burke. That gave them renewed confidence and helped turn the game around for them. Dumba made some poor plays defensively but also scored multiple goals.

What cost the Hawks was not having enough depth on defense and being inferior to the Kings in goal.

They just ran into a bad matchup for them. As you said in your prediction before the series began. The big players and the defensive system helped to shut down the potent Portland attack.

Although strangely enough I believe it cost them the first two games and the first two goals in game three due to giving up the neutral zone and even their own blueline/defensive zone way too easily. There was very poor gap control. Once they gained some confidence and tightened up the gap, things started to turn around. Then they could get the puck turned around the other way and take advantage of Portland's cheating offensively, poor defense, and mediocre goaltending.

Everyone wanting to get Phaneuf on the Oilers, well, Phaneuf is basically Matt Dumba at the NHL level.

heh, I have to ask about the random quote there of a statement made nearly a year ago.

I was kind of surprised because I hadn't seen Moonlapse post here in about a year. Then I looked back at the post you quoted..

That was a weird timewarp..

Leipsic is never composed. He's a pest. He runs around being dirty constantly.

I wonder what a Kelowna-Edmonton series would have looked like. I'd imagine lots of 2-1 or 3-2 games. Strangely enough I believe Kelowna would have beaten Edmonton in 7.

He doesn't usually take those dumb penalties though. He really lost it this series.

He has talented hands for a pest. Wonder how it'll translate to the NHL level with his size, but Nashville might have a pretty good pest in their system.

I dont think so. I always thought Portland was the team to beat. If the Oil Kings could beat Portland in a seven game series then they could beat anyone.

Oh yes they sure do. He can wheel too. He's going to be a NHL player for sure, despite his size. Maybe the closest thing to Fleury since Fleury? Brendan Gallagher is a similar player.
