G27 2017-18: Oilers at Flames

Two months into the 2017-18 season and the nightmare coma continues. The Edmonton Oilers employ fantastic talent and replacement level players side by each and it has caught up to them in a big way. If the club had a veteran winger with scoring ability and a No. 2 RHD, I think we’d be looking at a playoff spot this morning. They’re not coming, this is us. We’re on to Cleveland Calgary.

THE ATHLETIC!!

Great new offer! Includes a free 7-day trial so you can try The Athletic on for size free and see if they enjoy the in-depth, ad-free coverage on the site. If you don’t feel it’s worth the $4.49/month, cancel anytime during trial before getting charged. Offer is here.

LONG DECEMBER, YEAR OVER YEAR

  • November 2015: 7-6-1, goal differential -8
  • November 2016: 7-3-4, goal differential +3

G1 December 2015 was a 3-2 shootout win over the Boston Bruins, G1 December 2016 was a 6-3 victory featuring an explosive power play for the first time all season. If the Oilers can straighten out the special teams they can get back into contention but both look helplessly hapless right now.

AFTER 27, YEAR OVER YEAR

  • Oilers 15-16: 9-15-2, goal differential -16
  • Oilers 16-17: 14-10-2, goal differential +11
  • Oilers 17-18: 10-14-2, goal differential -15

As we begin the month, pretty clear the current Oilers are repeating the 2015-16 season. As you’re recall, the Oilers finished with a 31-43-8 record, last in the Pacific Division, last in the Western Conference, No. 29 in the NHL. That’s an embarrassing thought for Year Three Chiarelli and McLellan. G27 2015-16 saw Edmonton win 2-1 over Dallas in overtime, and last season a 2-1 OT loss to the Minnesota Wild.

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM DECEMBER

  • On the road to: Calgary (Expected: 0-0-1) (Actual: 0-0-0)
  • At home to: Philadelphia (Expected 1-0-0) (Actual: 0-0-0)
  • On the road to: Montreal, Toronto, Columbus (Expected 1-2-0) (Actual 0-0-0)
  • At home to: Nashville (Expected 0-1-0) (Actual 0-0-0)
  • On the road to: Minnesota (Expected 1-0-0) (Actual 0-0-0)
  • At home to: San Jose, St. Louis, Montreal (Expected 1-1-1) (Actual 0-0-0)
  • On the road to: Winnipeg (Expected 0-1-0) (Actual 0-0-0)
  • At home to: Chicago, Winnipeg (Expected 1-1-0) (Actual 0-0-0)
  • Overall expected result: 5-6-2, 12 points in 13 games 
  • Current results: 0-0-0

There’s just too much wrong. Trading actual assets this close to dead in the water makes no sense and with Talbot gone for December we’re looking at another audition position. There’s just too much wrong here, from special teams to injuries to goaltending to open auditions, and on it goes.

You can light candles and pray and I will never count out a Connor McDavid team completely, but this dog won’t hunt. It’s time to move on and discuss other things. A team can get a lot from a losing season (wrote about it at The Athletic) and we’ll begin our look at the draft early January. Cool?

50-MAN ROSTER

This is the current 50-man list, we could see the number reduced if Iiro Pakarinen is collected on waivers. This season has exposed the weaknesses in this roster, important to remember where it was 2015 spring.

50-MAN CHIARELLI’S FIRST DAY

I’d say the team is better in goal, defense, center, with both wings favoring the team from three years ago. Amazing to see who turned out among the prospects (Klefbom, Nurse, Davidson, Pitlick).

He is an interesting player, my look at him for The Athletic suggests we’re looking at a shy offensive contributor. The story of this season for Peter Chiarelli appears to be auditioning right-wingers who can’t reach 2.00/60 for love nor money. It’s actually pretty amazing.

OILERS ROSTER AND LINEUP

One area I’ll be following over the coming months is that baffling right-wing conundrum. Scoring wingers are more plentiful than effective centers, they are basically the “first base” option for hockey. “First base” is the one position anyone can play, save Al Oliver when he came over from the Texas Rangers, God love him.

Interesting to see everyone over 50 percent Corsi among the blue (except Russell, but he’s basically there), that would have been a dream back in 2010 fall. Talbot’s even-strength save percentage is interesting, bringing up something else we’ll talk about as the season rolls along: Improving special teams.

    *bandwagon flames fan for the 1st and 2nd and now 3rd period*

    Fucking Oilers look like the toughest team in the NHL right now. Talk about adding insult to injury.

  6. OmJo says:

    hunter1909: Join me on the flames bandwagon and you will be spoiled for choice.

    *bandwagon flames fan for the 1st and 2nd period*

    Lol, tempting but I’ll have to pass

  7. Lloyd B. says:

    OriginalPouzar: Roloson was awful – I appreciate his work in 2006 but he was not a good starting tender.

    Even worse at handling the puck.

    You need a snickers?

  8. danny says:

    We are clearly a better team without Hunter

  9. OriginalPouzar says:

    OmJo: The team just played like shit when he was here. They played great (relatively) when Garon was in net.

    Don’t forget what Roloson did in Tampa in the playoffs.

    Not a great tender but he was my favourite player for a while.

    We’ll disagree on Roloson – he let in so many weak/terrible goals – like every game.

  10. PaperDesigner says:

    JimmyV1965:
    Holy crap. Are the Flames ever slooooowwwww!!

    It appears that if you take out all their fast players, all they have left are slow players.

  11. Crazy Pedestrian says:

    StixMalone: Switch Strome?

    Strome to left wing???

    OmJo:
    Matt Benning just took a shit by Matt Stajan.

    And took a shot in the shit pad.

    Warrior.

    LMAO!!! Autocorrect is awesome!

  12. jzed says:

    3rd drink with umbrella, another good period

  13. StixMalone says:

    Crazy Pedestrian: Strome to left wing???

    My version of the blender. But only to be used if we are losing . Now excuse me I’m refilling my 12 year old rum

  14. OmJo says:

    Can Putin hack the NHL schedule and just have us play the Flames and Knights 41 games each all season?

    Is that too much to ask.

  15. fishman says:

    Well it has been a shite season so far but we do seem to have Flames number!

  16. OriginalPouzar says:

    Dicky94:
    OriginalPouzar,

    https://youtu.be/xkTd0-VooGQ

    Yup, nice pass by Roli on that one.

    Should I post a clip of Marek Malik to prove he was an elite goal scorer?

  17. Lowetide says:

    After Two

    5-1 Edmonton (2-0 in the second period)
    Shots 27-21 Edmonton (11-8 Oilers in the middle frame)
    Corsi for 5×5: 36-25 Edmonton (20-18 in the second for Edmonton)

  18. BONE207 says:

    OriginalPouzar:
    Scoring a late goal to make it 5-1 is so much better than giving up a late goal to make it 4-2 (and, yes, we can all admit we were very worried about that).

    Not me!!! We have Hunter…the anti-calgary fan

  19. OmJo says:

    Crazy Pedestrian: Strome to left wing???

    Not autocorrect. Even better… Cassie Campbell.

    My Father (God rest him) used to say this all the time.

  21. treevojo says:

    StixMalone:
    Get Lucic off that line

    All he has done is put up even strength points all year on any line he has been on so I guess you are right if you want to spread out the scoring.

    Sometimes I wonder for a place that is supposed to be analytically based why people have such a hard time looking at the numbers.

  22. hunter1909 says:

    Not we. I’m not admitting anything. I wasn’t worried at all. These are the Oilers of last year.

    That Toronto game turned this team North.

  24. OmJo says:

    OriginalPouzar: We’ll disagree on Roloson – he let in so many weak/terrible goals – like every game.

    Maybe I’m a bit biased. I just remember arguing with classmates in junior high about how different the Oilers played with Roloson than Garon.

    Man I’m old.

    He struggled near the end of his time here, but the team didn’t really help him out. Was a long time ago and my memory isn’t great so yeah, let’s agree to disagree.

  25. StixMalone says:

    Coyotes beat the Devils???

  26. OmJo says:

    Kelly Hrudy is one of those weird people who downplay their accomplishments to seem humble but just end up looking like a jackass.

  27. treevojo says:

    Lucic is on pace for 47 es points.

  28. hunter1909 says:

    Lloyd B.: That Toronto game turned this team North.

    *bandwagon flames fan for the 1st and 2nd and now 3rd period*

    As a newly minted flames fan, this really worries both myself and my fellow fans at CP.

  29. hunter1909 says:

    OmJo:
    Kelly Hrudy is one of those weird people who downplay their accomplishments to seem humble but just end up looking like a jackass.

    What accomplishments? Having a weird name?

  30. OmJo says:

    Fake punching is funny tbh.

    They complain if they real punch, they complain if they fake punch.

    This is why you just smack people across the head with your stick. Can’t please everybody.

    In junior high and you say old? I was a 4th year associate.

  32. Pescador says:

    Can Putin hack the NHL schedule and just have us play the Flames and Knights 41 games each all season?

    Is that too much to ask.

    Sorry he’s got his hands full with the World Cup at the moment

  33. jzed says:

    Cow Palace?

  34. who says:

    Talbot is not a good puck handler but he has magic hands compared to Broissoit. Pretty sure our goalie is leading the team in turnovers.
    Everything else looks good.

  35. hunter1909 says:

    *bandwagon flames fan for the 1st and 2nd and now 3rd period*

    And I thought the Oilers blew. This flames team is H.O.P.E.L.E.S.S.

  36. OriginalPouzar says:

    If anyone wanted to scroll up they would see that, prior to this game, Lucic was over 2 ES P/60 which is a nice number. Most of that without McDavid. That number will also go up tonight.

    He sure as heck does not look pretty out there but he’s producing at evens this year.

  37. OmJo says:

    OriginalPouzar: In junior high and you say old? I was a 4th year associate.

    I’m having a mid mid-life crisis kinda.

  38. D says:

    I used to have the same argument in junior high about Fuhr and Moog. So yeah, old.

  39. jzed says:

    If this is a one off, sign Iginla and let him retire as an Oiler…..

  40. doritogrande says:

    Finally caught up on my pvr-delay.

    I took time to science and according to a peer-review approved methods section of my thesis (Warren and Giordano, 2017), one actually can fit a puck fully through the hole between the skate boot and blade. It doesn’t fit perfectly flat though, so that was an actual-skill-play(tm) from Gryba.

    Remember kids, it’s not real if it’s not peer-reviewed.

  41. Lloyd B. says:

    hunter1909: *bandwagon flames fan for the 1st and 2nd and now 3rd period*

    This would be a great time for me to show clips of shots from the corner going in on Roli.

    Do you start cheering for the Flyers after this game or wait a few days?

    That Letestu sure is a red haired looking maniac. Reminds me of Andrew Robinson’s role in Dirty Harry.

    Do you start cheering for the Flyers after this game or wait a few days?

    *fan of whatever team the Oilers plays next so long as they play better than the team I’m cheering for*

    I’ll think about it.

    I had my 1st mid life crisis when I was fourteen and a half.

    I don’t think anyone ever would say lucic’s game was pretty.

    He is giving the oilers exactly what they thought they paid for up to this point.

    Hopefully it will last another 5 years.

    That was always the big question mark.

    I don’t get the complaints about current production.

  58. My Tierless Retina says:

    Lordy, that is one fugly hat.

  59. OmJo says:

    OriginalPouzar: Your in you 20s for crying out loud (unless you failed grade 3 like 6 times).

    Yeah I’m 24. Grade 3 was hard though. Kidding.

    It all started when I realized I was older than players being drafted. Then a coworker told me he was 17 and born in 2000. It kinda just hit me like damn, I’m getting old.

  60. hunter1909 says:

    *bandwagon flames fan for the 1st and 2nd and now 3rd period*

    Hunter, you’re that cool type of fLames fan. Insightful, polite, tolerable.

    But you can tell your friends on CP to kiss all our asses.

    I’ll wait.

  64. OmJo says:

  73. Munny says:

    (I joke, besides the polite part lol)

    Yeah… too bad it’s not mike smith…

  80. OriginalPouzar says:

    A great thing about a game like this is we can roll 4 lines and 3 D pairs now.

  81. hunter1909 says:

    *bandwagon flames fan for the 1st and 2nd and now 3rd period*

    It’s matthew Tczhuck I feel sorry for tonight.

    Its like he knows he’s getting his ass handed to him if he tries anything funny.

    Ice Sage:

    Goaltenders need to play, or else they get rusty.

    Hard to get into a rhythm when you play once every 5000 games.

    Talbot will have some real competition when he returns. Or else TMac is a jerk.

  88. OriginalPouzar says:

    McDavid should have his ice time reduced a bit given the 5 goal lead but they should double shift Jesse.

  89. My Tierless Retina says:

    I like talk dirty Cassie.

  90. BONE207 says:

    Nice to see other teams take over the title: Shit the bed on HNIC

  91. OmJo says:

    Brossoit has been more than decent.

    That was a Roloson like goal given up by Brossoit.

  116. treevojo says:

    OmJo,

    treevojo: Oilers won both games last year against the Flames on HNIC with a combined score of 9-4.

    They have won 5 in a row vs the flames out scoring them 24-11.

    I like our chances.

    I’m just going to leave this here for you

  117. hunter1909 says:

    OmJo:
    So my Eakins hypnotized McLellan theory might be onto something.

    Some enterprizing film-student/professional should make a short film of MacT interviewing Eakins. Done properly, that would be so funny I might drop dead.

  118. OmJo says:

    I won’t complain about that penalty in a 6-2 game.

  119. hunter1909 says:

    treevojo:
    OmJo,

    I’m just going to leave this here for you

    Ha, I was gonna do that after the game.

    Crow tastes good.

  121. Munny says:

    This is foot off the gas hockey.

  122. Crazy Pedestrian says:

    Booo… Gaudreau got a point…

  123. StixMalone says:

    Reverted back to pk that doesn’t work

  124. Ice Sage says:

    OmJo:
    I won’t complain about that penalty in a 6-2 game.

    6-3 Oilers getting their show run now

  125. My Tierless Retina says:

    Hope nothing bad happens to Hathaway.

    The greaser’s coach TMac looks like a caveman.

    You spelled svelte wrong.

  127. hunter1909 says:

    *bandwagon flames fan for the 1st and 2nd and now 3rd period*

    It’s about time!!!!

    We’re back in this game baby!!!!!!

    *sniffles*

  128. treevojo says:

    Now I’m pissed.

    I need another Mcdavid point to win my proline.

  129. Pescador says:

    Only 2 housekeeping items left; Puljujarvi hat trick goal, something very dirty on Tkchuck

  130. OmJo says:

    hunter1909: Some enterprizing film-student/professional should make a short film of MacT interviewing Eakins.Done properly, that would be so funny I might drop dead.

    More entertaining than Oil change.

  131. hunter1909 says:

    Gret99zky: You spelled svelte wrong.

    He’s lost 40 pounds. His suits look like he’s wearing his dad’s clothes.

  132. OmJo says:

    OmJo:
    I won’t complain about that penalty in a 6-2 game.

    I stand by what I said.

    Hathaway is a jackass.

  133. hunter1909 says:

    OmJo: More entertaining than Oil change.

    Oil Change = Fake news.

  134. jzed says:

    If Edmonton gets sucked in by Garnet freaking Hatheway, time to sign Iginla

  135. OmJo says:

    hunter1909,

    I wish “Oilers hire Eakins” was fake news.

  136. 106 and 106 says:

    it’s not inspiring when your goalie doesn’t know how a goal gets in.

  137. Lloyd B. says:

    The Miracle on Manchester was not as much fun as you whipper snappers think.

    This needs to stop NOW !

  138. Munny says:

    Foot off the gas and they might actually be in reverse.

  139. Réal Goudenyéu says:

    I’m worried for real

  140. hunter1909 says:

    *bandwagon flames fan for the 1st and 2nd and now 3rd period*

    Come on Hamonic! If you’re afraid of that ugly assed Patrick Maroon you don’t even have to skate towards him. We understand.

  141. hunter1909 says:

    Réal Goudenyéu:
    I’m worried for real

    *bandwagon flames fan for the 1st and 2nd and now 3rd period*

    I’m worried that the Oilers are kicking my teams asses, for real. No need to worry either.

    ps: Real Madrid are one of the world’s top soccer teams. They’ll be fine.

  142. StixMalone says:

    We can’t play shut down hockey. Score another goal

  143. Gerta Rauss says:

    TV timeout couldn’t have come at a better time

  144. OmJo says:

    Why not celebrate 100 years of the NHL with an Oilers Habs outdoor game like the first one.

  145. sliderule says:

    Maroon takes a dumb penalty

    I guess he felt he needed to make a game out of it

  146. jzed says:

    Not forechecking anymore, way too much time left

  147. OmJo says:

    hunter1909: *bandwagon flames fan for the 1st and 2nd and now 3rd period*

    I’m worried that the Oilers are kicking my teams asses, for real. No need to worry either.

    ps: Real Madrid are one of the world’s top soccer teams. They’ll be fine.

    These posts shouldn’t be free.

  148. Gret99zky says:

    hunter1909: He’s lost 40 pounds. His suits look like he’s wearing his dad’s clothes.

    Well, there goes polite.

  149. OmJo says:

    StixMalone:

    Another 4.

    #WeWant10

  150. Munny says:

    Oilers are using the post to send messages by Morse code tonight.

  151. Gerta Rauss says:

  158. BONE207 says:

  159. doritogrande says:

    Anyone wanna forgive Russell for that?

  160. D says:

    Man Russell is been having bad luck these last couple of games.

  161. StixMalone says:

    There goes my blood pressure…

  162. hunter1909 says:

    *bandwagon flames fan for the 1st and 2nd and now 3rd period*

    2 goals boys! You can do it!

  163. Munny says:

    For fuck sakes.

  164. treevojo says:

    FML

  165. My Tierless Retina says:

    Gulp

  166. Ice Sage says:

    Hunter you’re a genius

  167. Munny says:

    LB is in his own head.

  168. Crazy Pedestrian says:

    You Have to be fucking kidding me….

  169. Melvis says:

    This is going to go over real good.

  170. Gerta Rauss says:

    omg again

  171. hunter1909 says:

    *bandwagon flames fan for the 1st and 2nd and now 3rd period*

    I told you we could do it!!

  172. StixMalone says:

    Reminds me of a playoff game last year…

  173. Diablo says:

    Brossoit sucks

  174. danny says:

    LB was way too far back in his crease on that shot

  175. OmJo says:

    Nope.

    Nope. Nope. Nope.

    Nope.

  176. jzed says:

    Rest of December looking pretty grim right now

  177. BeerMe says:

    LB sucks

  178. LadiesloveSmid says:

    Last chance Texaco for LB.

    Can’t believe he’s throwing this game

  179. Johnny skid says:

    the cheering section in the broadcast booth is annoying.

  180. Diablo says:

    He’s been too deep on all of the goals

  181. OilClog says:

    Lose this game and heads roll

  182. BONE207 says:

    What in the actual fuck

  183. Gret99zky says:

    Seriously.

    Fuck. This. Team.

    TMc can GTFO, right now.

  184. My Tierless Retina says:

    Randorf and Cassie sound relieved.

  185. danny says:

    Put in Ellis

  186. Crazy Pedestrian says:

    Fuck the fLames…fuck the fLames…

  187. hunter1909 says:

    *bandwagon flames fan for the 1st and 2nd and now 3rd period*

    Keep Russell out there lol

  188. Réal Goudenyéu says:

    OilClog:
    Lose this game and heads roll

    No they won’t. Heads should have rolled two weeks ago. These are your oilers coaches and gm for the rest of year.

  189. JonyPro says:

    Not to be rude Hunter but……stfu lol

  190. StixMalone says:

    Well looks like Brossoit is rattled

  191. Diablo says:

    Gret99zky:
    Seriously.

    Fuck. This. Team.

    TMc can GTFO, right now.

    How is the shitty goaltending TMac’s fault?

  192. Réal Goudenyéu says:

    StixMalone:
    Well looks like Brossoit is rattled

    The entire team is rattled.

  193. OmJo says:

    To be fair to LB the Oilers pressed on the breaks for half the period.

  194. StixMalone says:

    This team can’t play shut down hockey….EVER

  195. OmJo says:

    StixMalone:
    Well looks like Brossoit is rattled

    He looks like a hologram. Dunno how else those pucks could go through.

  196. hunter1909 says:

    *bandwagon flames fan for the 1st and 2nd and now 3rd period*

    When McBaby loses the puck and the Flames get a 2 on 1 you know somethings going great in calgary tonight.

  197. Munny says:

    Well they managed to string together four good periods. Five was too much to ask.

  198. Gret99zky says:

    hunter1909,

    Also, strike tolerable off the list.

  199. StixMalone says:

    Here we go
