OILERS AT 78: STUART SKINNER

Skinner was ranked No. 71 on the Bob McKenzie list. More to come.

Draft Analyst from Top Prospects Game: Goalies rarely hurt their reputations from a TPG since the event is normally low scoring. Skinner, who had a tough start to his season, entered the TPG with a chance to confirm how solid his play of late has been (he’s faced 30 or more shots in 29 of 44 appearances, including 13 with over 39 shots against). What stood out most was Skinner’s rebound control in a game featuring great scoring chances with traffic milling around the low slot. His ability to track shots from the release point helped, but his quickness and butterfly timing allowed him to absorb several high quality chances.  Source

I had him No. 25 on my WHL list.

    As with Yamamoto, another older prospect though not a draft re-entry, has already played three seasons in WHL.

    Problem with this is he’s now going to graduate junior the same year as Wells. Direct competition for the minor league nets.

  2. StixMalone says:

    A goalie? Thought Chiarelli said they were drafting out of need? Guess we need a goalie….

  3. leadfarmer says:

    As expected a goalie. Don’t think it was necessary to trade up but I guess they knew Philly was picking G next.

  4. Diablo says:

    What did we trade to move up?

  5. leadfarmer says:

    Please Calgary overpay. If they got him for cheap I’ll be pissed

    It was at 78, blog title sez 82

    THN (#85): Terrific size, crisp lateral movements. Must cut down on leaky goals.

  8. doritogrande says:

    Dmitri Samorukov??

  9. leadfarmer says:

    Damn picks for Hamonic only.

  10. T0ML says:

    @PierreVLeBrun (Pierre LeBrun): Rest of Hamonic deal: believe Isles get a 1st RD pick, two 2nd RD picks while Flames also get a 4th RD pick back (1m ago)

    Yeah they traded up. I’m sure LT is scrambling to write something about him

  12. StixMalone says:

    Treliving must have some incriminating pictures of Snow. How in HELL???????

  13. doritogrande says:

    Samorukov LT list #133, not ranked by THN.

  14. Klima's_Bucket says:

    Solid pick this guy has two way ability as evidenced by this little highlight.

    Disagree. That’s a huge haul. Calgary hates drafting and consistently trade their picks so they have to make these trades.

  16. Alpine says:

    Chia has traded Hall, Ebs a first and a second just to get Larsson, Strome, lose Reinhart to Vegas and miss out on two really good RHD to our Southern rivals. And the overpay another LHD til he’s 34. How do people still make excuses for this guy? He’s a borderline awful GM and I don’t think that’s overreacting because I’ve tried to defend him up until this week.

    Chia clearly doesn’t want to trade away picks.

    Calgary has done such a shitty job drafting outside the top 10 that they couldn’t care less about their picks. Good trade for Snow – he has Pulock ready to step in or could land Shattenkirk. Those 2 second rounders are trade capital at the deadline. Calgary now has nothing to offer at the trade deadline for the next two years.

    But yeah, I’m pissed that the damn Falmes got Hamonic.

    Feel free to stop following the Oilers, Alpine. That’s always an option.

  19. oilersfan says:

    I really hate both of these picks

    Goalies take 5-6 years and rarely work out

    We need another skinny left shot dman with no offence in the system like we need another ex oiler player in management

    I will bet anybody here this dman plays zero games in the nhl

    I bet he doesn’t even get signed in two years. What a wasted pick

  20. T0ML says:

    The oilers offer for Hamilton was better than the flames ….. Sweeny hates Chai for the Dougie OS threat….

    Diablo: Calgary now has nothing to offer at the trade deadline for the next two years.

    They have some very good prospects they could use for currency in a trade.

    They have a very good top 9 up front.

    And now they have a top 4 D core that few in the league can match.

    Goalie is a question mark though.

  22. doritogrande says:

    LT: what were the flaws identified to lead to you not having Skinner ranked? Was it his junk GAA/SV%?

    Posted before I knew of the picks. That is a big haul. Treliving always gets the player we covet. Should tell them we are after Hossa lol

  24. Ribs says:

    Every time he lets in a bad goal… SKINNNNERRRR!!!

  25. Gross misconduct says:

    Diablo,

    Rrad Ari yanover at Flames nation if you can find it now, where he strongly suggests the Flames dont trade for Hamonic. He backs it up by laying out ugly anylitics on Hamonic for the last 3 years ! The crux if it in a 3 season aggregate among Nhl defenceman who played 1500 minutes minimum 5×5. Hamonics CF % RANKS him 122 out of 191 dmen. This is a very overrated defender. And the Flames paid dearly.
