G65 2017-18: Rangers at Oilers

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins played for the Oilers on Saturday January 3. The team’s record was 17-20-3, 37 points in 40 games. Since then? 10-13-1, 21 points in 24 games. Nuge may return tonight, I’d like to see him port side at some point but it probably won’t happen this evening. Suspect he slides in on 2C, with big Leon moving up the depth chart.

These final games should see Anton Slepyshev, Jesse Puljujarvi and Pontus Aberg alongside quality NHL centers. I wouldn’t mind seeing Jujhar Khaira for a few games at left wing with one of the centers three either.

HAMBURGER MIDNIGHT, YEAR OVER YEAR

  • March 2016: 1-0-0, goal differential +1 (2 points)
  • March 2017: 1-0-0, goal differential +1 (2 points)
  • March 2018: 0-1-0, goal differential -2 (0 points)
  • March 3, 2016: Edmonton 4, Philadelphia 0 (Source)
  • March 7, 2017: NY Islanders 4, Edmonton 1 (Source

Strong starts in March for the first two McLellan teams, we’ll see about this year’s team. I do think there’s a chance to make some progress but everyone is trying out new players and that means more mistakes and less control over results.

The Rangers won last night but are running an inexperienced defense this evening. I’d bet money Todd McLellan puts the McDavid-Draisaitl band together tonight. They might go off.

AFTER 64, YEAR OVER YEAR

  • Oilers 15-16: 23-34-7, goal differential -45 (53 points)
  • Oilers 16-17: 34-22-8, goal differential +17 (76 points)
  • Oilers 17-18: 27-33-4, goal differential -34 (58 points)
  • March 1, 2016: Edmonton 2, Buffalo 1 (OT) (Source)
  • March 4, 2017: Edmonton 4, Detroit 3 (Source)

Edmonton is on track to finish with 74 points, a truly amazing total considering the talent at the top end. We’ll spend the spring discussing the possibilities from Kovalchuk to Krug, but this season has little left in it. McDavid winning the scoring championship would be a fine item but the big issue is getting three or four fixes without giving up Nuge, Klef or the lottery selection. A tough equation for any general manager.

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM MARCH

  • At home to: Nashville, NY Rangers, Arizona, NY Islanders, Minnesota (Expected 2-3-0) (Actual 0-1-0)
  • On the road to: Calgary (Expected 0-1-0) (Actual 0-0-0)
  • At home to: San Jose (Expected 0-0-1) (Actual 0-0-0)
  • On the road to: Florida, Tampa Bay, Carolina, Ottawa (Expected 1-2-1) (Actual 0-0-0)
  • At home to: Los Angeles, Anaheim, Columbus (Expected 2-1-0) (Actual 0-0-0)
  • On the road to: Vancouver, Calgary (Expected 1-0-1) (Actual 0-0-0)
  • Overall expected result: 6-7-3, 15 points in 16 games
  • Current results: 0-1-0, 0 points in one game

The window is open now, Edmonton should be able to grab two wins this week. If the club can go on another winning streak, perhaps we can discuss 82 points as the outer marker.

THE VETERAN CLUSTER

In previous days, we found out the department of youth (McDavid cluster) is two goals off my predicted pace, while the prime cluster is 16 goals behind (as we discussed yesterday). Let’s check out the veterans.

  • Milan Lucic is 64gp, 9-22-31 .484. He trails my projection by five points and is also five goals behind at this time.
  • Patrick Maroon was 57gp, 14-16-30 .526. He was behind by two points at the time of the trade and by four goals.
  • Jussi Jokinen was 14gp, 0-1-1 and Mike Cammalleri is 41gp, 2-18-20 .488. They are off by five points and by nine goals.
  • Andrej Sekera is 22gp, 0-2-2 .091. He is off by six points and two goals.
  • Yohann Auvitu is 28gp, 2-5-7 .250. He is off by one point and one goal.
  • Mark Letestu was  60gp, 8-11-19 .317. He was three points to the good and spot on in goals at the time of his trade.
  • Kris Russell is 62gp, 4-17-21 .339. Russell is ahead by 11 points and by three goals.
  • Eric Gryba is 21gp, 0-2-2 .096. His point total is correct but he’s a goal behind.
  • Cam Talbot is 51gp, 3.13 .903. He is off by 26 goals based on his games played.

Final tally

  • McDavid cluster -2
  • Prime cluster -16
  • Veteran cluster -45

I work hard on those estimates and if anything the top end (97, 29) projections are too high. It is once again the veteran group that is the major problem on the Oilers. The team needs more good players but ideally they come from the prime cluster. This NHL is quickly becoming more a young man’s league than ever before. The Aberg bet was an astute one. More please.

Yamamoto showed this kind of turnover ability as an Oilers in training camp and preseason. We’ve gone round and round on this player all winter, I’d still give him an 85 percent chance of making the opening night lineup.

ENTRY DRAFT 2018

I had a fascinating exchange this week with a reader, who asked if I thought my list reflected what the Oilers might do at the 2018 draft. The answer is no of course, my list is based almost entirely on math and anecdotal information gathered from everywhere I can. He then asked what I thought the Oilers list looks like. Here’s my guess:

  1. LD Rasmus Dahlin, Frolunda (SHL)
  2. R Andrei Svechnikov, Barrie Colts (OHL). 
  3. L Filip Zadina, Halifax Mooseheads (QMJHL).
  4. LD Quinn Hughes, Michigan (NCAA)
  5. R Oliver Wahlstrom, U.S. N. D. P. (USHL)
  6. L Brady Tkachuk, Boston University (NCAA).
  7. RD Adam Boqvist, Brynas (SuperElite)
  8. RD Ryan Merkley, Guelph Storm (OHL)
  9. RD Evan Bouchard, London Knights (OHL)
  10. RD Noah Dobson, Acadie-Bathurst Titan (QMJHL).

Not certain about the order, but I bet you a 2-4 that’s damn close to the 10 men they are targeting.

    Stuart Skinner stops 18 of 19 in a 3-1 win.

    Patrick Russell and Caleb Jones with 2nd period goals and the Condors are up 4-3 going in to the third – they really need that win.

    David Gust scores (from Jones) and its 5-3 Condors.

    Professor Q,

    Did not know about the on roster as of preceding trade deadline requirement for a non-compliance buyout.Couldn’t find it in the user-hostile CBA pdf.Any idea where to find that provision?

    I was going on memory, but I did find this for other details:

  7. Munny says:

    GOilers!!

  8. Munny says:

    Rogers really went fullout for their pre-game show and analysis. I’m overwhelmed.

  9. OriginalPouzar says:

    Nice to see Nuge in uniform.

  10. Munny says:

    Damn, Sleppy had a lot of net to shoot at there

  11. StixMalone says:

    Watching the Leafs vs Caps reminds me of the movie Tron. Those Leaf uniforms? Don’t know what to make of them…

  12. Pouzar says:

    Fark that was close.

  13. OriginalPouzar says:

    Nice early passing play by the Slep/Strome/JP line for a quick shot from the high slot.

  14. Lowetide says:

    Slepyshev just missed there.

  15. Munny says:

    That’s the 2018 Oilers that I know and loathe

  16. OriginalPouzar says:

    First shot, first goal against.

    No chance for Talbot.

  17. Professor Q says:

    StixMalone:
    Watching the Leafs vs Caps reminds me of the movie Tron. Those Leaf uniforms? Don’t know what to make of them…

    They light up?

  18. OriginalPouzar says:

    More terrible transition leading to a turnover and then Russell loses his man and it in our net.

  19. Pouzar says:

    Weak sauce Russ

  20. Professor Q says:

    I really don’t get this first shot thing with Edmonton.

    Definitely something they need to work on in the offseason.

  21. StixMalone says:

    Same old lame start…

  22. Pouzar says:

    The stick lift/tie up is an elusive skill with this team.

    Take a penalty FFS, do something.

  23. Hockey Project says:

    Dammit. Russell slept through his alarm again.

  24. BONE207 says:

    Tabernac Saturdays?

    Bastards…I will shovel more snow if this shit keeps up

  25. Munny says:

    Can’t Benning people if you’re an Oiler, Kass.

  26. Pouzar says:

    Wonderful start. #Kass

  27. OriginalPouzar says:

    No Kass, you can’t do that…..

  28. BONE207 says:

    Professor Q:
    I really don’t get this first shot thing with Edmonton.

    Definitely something they need to work on in the offseason.

    How about just being ready. They don’t need an off season for that!!!

  29. OriginalPouzar says:

    StixMalone:
    Same old lame start…

    Not really – Oilers had scored first the last 6 games in a row.

  30. Pouzar says:

    Nuge is scorin tonight.

  31. Pouzar says:

    Nice kill…it’s a start.

  32. StixMalone says:

    OriginalPouzar: Not really – Oilers had scored first the last 6 games in a row.

    True ….old habits coming back

  33. OriginalPouzar says:

    Very loose with their “passing” in our own zone.

  34. OilClog says:

    Would be sweet If the coach played it like a regular season game, kinda want Mcdavid on early to set some tone. Not first sight on the pk.

  35. Pouzar says:

    Looch-ed

  36. Bank Shot says:

    Pouzar:
    Weak sauce Russ

    I think he thought Mcdavid was going to take that guy instead of just coasting through the slot.

  37. Munny says:

    Just an awful shift by Sekera. Two bad passes and then went all the way to the right side boards to cover his partner’s man, leaving front of the net wide open.

  38. OriginalPouzar says:

    OilClog:
    Would be sweet If the coach played it like a regular season game, kinda want Mcdavid on early to set some tone. Not first sight on the pk.

    The McDavid line was on for the goal against before the penalty, so……

  39. Pouzar says:

    wtf is Klef doin there?

  40. OilClog says:

    OriginalPouzar: The McDavid line was on for the goal against before the penalty, so……

    Russell’s right hand

  41. Rebilled says:

    Welcome back Sir Nugent-Hopkins.

  42. StixMalone says:

    Are we playing against a backup goalie? Oh oh

  43. BONE207 says:

    Is this rookie goalie going to do a number on us? Oilers hospitality?

  44. OriginalPouzar says:

    Some ugly hockey out there – could it be two poor hockey teams?

  45. Pouzar says:

    What a shit show start. Stay onside you ****s.

  46. OriginalPouzar says:

    Oh my, that’s like 6 icings by the Rangers – I have to wake up in 5 hours and 39 minutes, lets go….

  47. OriginalPouzar says:

    Pouzar:
    What a shit show start. Stay onside you ****s.

    Or Sekera could make a play with the puck a bit earlier…..

  48. OriginalPouzar says:

    Hebig with an assist early in the 3rd.

  49. VOR says:

    BornInAGretzkyJersey:
    VOR,

    Question is, how do you perceive the upcoming draft?

    I think the drop from Dahlin to Svechnikov/Zadina is close too as large as Mario Lemieux to Kirk Muller in 1984.

    I think the drop from Zadina to Tkachuk and the defencemen is really a lot smaller than imagined. A lot smaller.

    That is why if I didn’t get Dahlin in the draft but was instead say 2nd or 3rd I would trade down. As I’ve said I’d go to Detroit. Let”s say they are 10th. I’d go 2 to 10 for Athanasiou and the 2nd they got from Arizona. Athanasiou is a burner.

    Now I’d drop to Carolina. That won’t likely be a big drop. Either you get their second or Roland McKeown and of course their first.

    Then one final time to Boston for their first and Anders Bjork.

    All of which is predicated on my assumption that there is way less gap from 2nd to 31st than thought. We need a RD and their will still be some high risk, high reward RDs left. At 30/31 and 32 (from Detroit) we take two of them. Then we draft best D left with our 2nd rounder and Carolina’s if we went that route.

    Athanasiou and Bjork give you 2 new NHL level wingers. The prospect pool would look light years better.

  50. Hockey Project says:

    Not sure what Lucic was doing on what became a 2-on-1 after he simply peeled away from the play.

  51. Wilde says:

    Sekera looks so, so off.

    Please shut these players down.

  52. Hockey Project says:

    The fans have been louder for that beer thing on the big screen than they have been for the game so far.

  53. OriginalPouzar says:

    Pairings switched up a bit – Sekera with Benning – not sure if that’s just for this shift.

  54. Pouzar says:

    zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  55. OriginalPouzar says:

    Wilde:
    Sekera looks so, so off.

    Please shut these players down.

    Sekera doesn’t need to be shut down, he needs the opposite.

  56. BONE207 says:

    Wilde:
    Sekera looks so, so off.

    Please shut these players down.

    How about these players step up.

  57. Wilde says:

    Puljujarvi low key breaking up that play

  58. jp says:

    Never seen a stick fly that far lol

  59. Wilde says:

    McJedi straight up lightsabered that guys stick

  60. BONE207 says:

    I looked at Desharnais stats. He’d been a good soldier

  61. Pouzar says:

    awful game

  62. Hockey Project says:

    I’ll give credit where it’s due: nice read by Russell there.

  63. rickithebear says:

    Russel presses the forward on the perimeter.
    Doing a were is Waldo.
    Forward presses HD area on Nurses side he hangs to the post instead of pressuring the pass.
    Waldo is sleeping.
    Nurse continues to free path the HD zone.
    Russell gets beat cause of perimeter pressure.

    Tmac must go!

  64. Wilde says:

    Desharnais was beating Pakarinen’s checking so hard I had to look away

  65. Hockey Project says:

    Not to be that guy, but Fred Sasakamoose wasn’t the first indigenous player in the NHL.

  66. jp says:

    Really awesome to see the Bear cheering section at the game. Very cool

  67. Munny says:

    Wilde: Please shut these players down.

    Why in Gord’s green earth would you do that?

  68. OriginalPouzar says:

    Another good shift by the Strome/Slep/JP line – the only line to have anything going in the offensive zone so far.

  69. Pouzar says:

    Love that Aberg doesn’t screw around. Get it, shoot it.

  70. digger50 says:

    Love your ideas and thinking VOR.

    Unfortunately this is way over Peters head.

  71. Pouzar says:

    OriginalPouzar:

    If TMc stopped screwin around with the lines that one could be something.

  72. Pouzar says:

    The backup. The f^ckin backup.

  73. Pouzar says:

    Good pass by Looch

  74. BONE207 says:

    Oilers will never score again from the slot

  75. OriginalPouzar says:

    It really isn’t good when Kris Russell is the 1RD.

  76. Pouzar says:

    McDavid was better with Slepy on his line.

  77. Munny says:

    I can’t stand Ran-dwarf’s play-by-play any longer; this is bad hockey that needs to be watched from a perch at the pub with no sound.

    Besides, somebody has to drink for OP… so he can work out without damaging Canada’s per capita consumption stats.

  78. Rebilled says:

    Really #loochingfordahlin tonight.

    Desharnais scores off his face soon.

  79. JD_Wry says:

    Third game in four nights on the road for the Rangers. Yeah…

  80. BONE207 says:

    Pouzar:
    McDavid was better with Slepy on his line.

    You mean Sleppy was better with Connor on his line. Don’t screw with deity

  81. jp says:

    Drai has not been sharp tonight

  82. Pouzar says:

    I hate Drai with McDavid….they will make me eat my words but I fucking hate it.

  83. Pouzar says:

    BONE207: You mean Sleppy was better with Connor on his line. Don’t screw with deity

    No that is not what I meant.

  84. OriginalPouzar says:

    Hebig with another assist, on the tieing goal.

  85. BONE207 says:

    Pouzar:
    I hate Drai with McDavid….they will make me eat my words but I fucking hate it.

    You would love it if Crosby & Stamkos were on the 2nd line. Tolerable…

  86. exoilinxs says:

    What a morbidly boring first period. Who cares if they raise the salary cap because Chiarelli still can’t count to 75.

  87. OriginalPouzar says:

    and so he doesn’t get divorced, lose his career and, eventually, his life……

  88. Lowetide says:

    Amazing period by the Oilers. I counted one tape to tape pass from D to F that was worth a tinker’s damn, Rangers played last night but have better boots and several great chances to zero for Edmonton.

  89. BONE207 says:

    OriginalPouzar: and so he doesn’t get divorced, lose his career and, eventually, his life……

    What a buzz kill…

  90. Lowetide says:

    After One

    1-0 NYR
    Shots 8-6 NYR
    Corsi for 5×5 23-11 NYR

  91. OriginalPouzar says:

    Pouzar: If TMc stopped screwin around with the lines that one could be something.

    Well, in his defence (god forbid), Slepy and Strome was a thing for a bit and doing well but, when Maroon got hurt (and then traded), someone needed to move up to the top 6 and it was Slep. Now that Nuge is back for the top 6, Slep is back with Strome.

  92. Wilde says:

    Watching our transition trying to beat a 1-4 is moderately psychologically damaging.

  93. Professor Q says:

    Pouzar:
    I hate Drai with McDavid….they will make me eat my words but I fucking hate it.

    I just had Alphabet Vegetable Soup, so I literally ate my words.

  94. BornInAGretzkyJersey says:

    “It’s a bold strategy cotton, let’s see if it pays off for ’em!”

    Interesting insights, thanks for sharing.

    This Burger Bob interview is infuriating.

  97. who says:

    Hockey Project:
    Not sure what Lucic was doing on what became a 2-on-1 after he simply peeled away from the play.

    That was one brutal play there. First forward back, in good position, and instead of looking over his shoulder he just peels off to go stand in his right point defensive position, CHECKING NO ONE. Meanwhile the trailing forward cruises right down the slot for a point blank shot.
    Looks like some of the guarranteed contracts decided to take the first period off. Lucic, Kassian and Drai didnt look very engaged.

  98. BONE207 says:

    JD_Wry:
    This Burger Bob interview is infuriating.

    He’s so close but your fist can’t reach…

  99. Professor Q says:

    Tough interview going on here. Interesting stuff.

  106. OriginalPouzar says:

    Hebig with an assist on the OT winner.

    3 straight points for Hebig there – in on the two goals to tie and the OT winner.

  107. who says:

    You know I thought they had 4 lines going pretty good against Nashville. If it weren’t for a few brain farts they could have won that game.
    I know they wanted to get Nuge in but did they have to change every line to do it?

  108. Wilde says:

    JD_Wry,

    Jesus christ, did you watch that period of Oilers hockey and decide that wasn’t a degrading enough viewing by itself?

  109. BONE207 says:

    jp: I’m having a drink for you as well (and appreciating how hard what you’re doing is).

    Do you mean watching the game? You are going to be one silly drunk man.

  110. JD_Wry says:

    Can’t wait for the second intermission chat with The Grape One.

  111. OriginalPouzar says:

    Joe G. with the empty netter and the Condors get a huge win.

    Take the flames farm team and all your “top prospects”.

  112. BONE207 says:

    JD_Wry: Can’t wait for the second intermission chat with The Grape One.

    This time he’ll be sampling his wines with Gene

  113. Lowetide says:

    60 percent PC, 20 percent TM, 20 percent assistant coaches. Seem about right?

  114. Pescador says:

    JD_Wry: Can’t wait for the second intermission chat with The Grape One.

    One change for sure, no more BC wines

  115. BONE207 says:

    As long as it’s 0% Nuge

  116. OriginalPouzar says:

    I think the Rangers are trying to set the record for icings….

  117. Wilde says:

    we got a scoring chance

  118. Pouzar says:

    Nice play by Aberg

  119. OriginalPouzar says:

    Oilers with a good chance after Cammy forces a turnover – backup goalie makes a fine save, shocking.

    Another nice save on Pakarinan now.

  120. OriginalPouzar says:

    Tyler Benson with a 2nd period goal.

  121. Wilde says:

    Two of them!! It’s happening!

  122. jp says:

    BONE207: Do you mean watching the game?You are going to be one silly drunk man.

    Lol, no. But I suppose you have a point.

  123. Hockey Project says:

    Pardon my French, but I’m struggling to remember a defense that fucked around with the puck in their own end as much as these Oilers.

  124. OriginalPouzar says:

    My dream of having multiple PPs tonight is starting to slip away….

  125. Wilde says:

    it’s an absolute clownshow watching our wingers pirouetting trying to fly the zone and get back over and over

  126. BONE207 says:

    I love Darrell

  127. Gerta Rauss says:

    BONE207:
    I love Darrell

    And his other brother Darrell

  128. Professor Q says:

    I wonder what Edmonton would look like with Pionk it?

  129. Gerta Rauss says:

    McDavid!!

  130. OriginalPouzar says:

    McDavid with an ugly goal on the tender.

  131. Lowetide says:

    McDavid scored. Was it offside?

  132. StixMalone says:

    How?

  133. BONE207 says:

    CONNOR

  134. Wilde says:

    AV is a good man

  135. Professor Q says:

    McDavid!

    Please, please, please, keep talking about McDavid going on late-season tears.

  136. Wilde says:

    TALBS THAT WASNT CLOSE

  137. OriginalPouzar says:

    Oh, Jesus Talbot…..

  138. Pouzar says:

    Are you serious Talbot?

  139. StixMalone says:

    Jeez Talbot….

  140. Gerta Rauss says:

    oh ffs

  141. Hockey Project says:

    Those are the ones that always seem to go in.

  142. Professor Q says:

    “Call it a flukey one, call it a lucky one on Georgiev, but McDavid scored.”

    Back-to-Back 30 goal seasons.

    4 Game point streak.

    He’s coming along nicely.

  143. JD_Wry says:

    We now return you to your regularly scheduled Oilering.

  144. Professor Q says:

    Did my feed slow down? Everyone is seeming as if NY scored again…

  145. Wilde says:

    Ryan Spooner > Rick Nash

  146. Gerta Rauss says:

    Professor Q:
    Did my feed slow down? Everyone is seeming as if NY scored again…

    No, no….you’re right on time

  147. Wilde says:

    90’s night Mika is killing us dead

  148. Pouzar says:

    Sick of Talbot already.

  149. Pescador says:

    Professor Q: I just had Alphabet Vegetable Soup, so I literally ate my words.

    I ate a can of hotel Alphagetti,
    All F’s

  150. anduril says:

    All too typical night for Russell. Both goals, it’s his mark that scores.

  151. Pouzar says:

    Pouzar:
    Sick of Talbot already.

  152. Gerta Rauss says:

    oh dear

  153. StixMalone says:

    Pull him now

  154. Professor Q says:

    I give up.

  155. Hockey Project says:

    Ick

  156. BONE207 says:

    Pescador: I ate a can of hotel Alphagetti,
    All F’s

    Did you use the lamp cord to heat it?

  157. Wilde says:

    We’re killing us dead

  158. Professor Q says:

    Pescador: I ate a can of hotel Alphagetti,
    All F’s

    I can’t give anymore of those with this team anymore it seems. No can do.

  159. Rebilled says:

    “It got through Talbot and into the net.’

    He’ll be fine next year..

  160. StixMalone says:

    Won’t pull him … stubborn coach

  161. BONE207 says:

    Is now the time we start making snarky & witty comments about things other than hockey?

  162. StixMalone says:

    Status quo. That’s the motto. We’ll stick with that recipe for success….

  163. Bling says:

    Nice back board pass by Sekera! Almost worked.

  164. OilClog says:

    You’re not living if you haven’t heated your Alphabet soup with a fish tank heater

  165. Bling says:

    I don’t think you can blame Talbot for the third goal.

  166. BONE207 says:

    Bling:
    I don’t think you can blame Talbot for the third goal.

    I don’t. I blame him for all of them.

  167. Pescador says:

    This is the same fuck show we watched back in November

  168. Wilde says:

    BONE207,

    First one was a backdoor tap in though

  169. BONE207 says:

    5 Ranger defence with a cup of coffee in the nhl & their 3rd game in 4 nights. Of course they’re winning…this team…

  170. Wilde says:

    I saw that dump fake Oscar, you devil

  171. BONE207 says:

    Wilde:
    BONE207,

    First one was a backdoor tap in though

    Ok ok…but he’s no Giorgiev

  172. Decidedly Skeptical Fan says:

    Wilde:
    BONE207,

    First one was a backdoor tap in though

    Yah, I really hate it when they go backdoor on us.

  173. Hockey Project says:

    I like Milan Lucic, and try not complain about him too much, but Stevie Wonder would attempt fewer blind passes.

  174. BONE207 says:

    Looch with a couple of no look backhand passes. If you can’t score…

  175. Zelepukin says:

    Some of the worst point shots i’ve seen in awhile.

  176. OriginalPouzar says:

    That was a nice goal.

  177. Wilde says:

    Jesus CHRIST that was dirty

  178. Lowetide says:

    Nuge scored.

  179. BONE207 says:

    NUGEY

  180. StixMalone says:

    Leave Nuge with McDavid pkease

  181. Pouzar says:

    That didn’t take long. Nuge on LW please.

  182. LadiesloveSmid says:

    I knew Nuge would score

  183. Professor Q says:

    Say, Nuge on LW isn’t bad at all…

  184. Bling says:

    Nuge’s haircut makes him look like the kid from Stranger Things.

  185. Professor Q says:

    Decidedly Skeptical Fan: Yah, I really hate it when they go backdoor on us.

    “That’s what.”

    – She

  186. exoilinxs says:

    Do you think the rocket scientists will keep McD with Nuge for more than a delayed penalty?

  187. Pouzar says:

    Pouzar:
    Nuge is scorin tonight.

  188. BONE207 says:

    Professor Q:
    Say, Nuge on LW isn’t bad at all…

    LT willed it. Now if he would will the swarm away…

  189. Pouzar says:

    exoilinxs:
    Do you think the rocket scientists will keep McD with Nuge for more than a delayed penalty?

    less than zero

  190. BONE207 says:

    exoilinxs:
    Do you think the rocket scientists will keep McD with Nuge for more than a delayed penalty?

    You Sir are very generous with your praise of these coaches

  191. Wilde says:

    Feels like Deaharnais’ unit is rolling us

  192. OilClog says:

    They let Nuge go to Mexico with undiagnosed broken ribs, man this franchise.

  193. Pouzar says:

    Never change TMc.

  194. Wilde says:

    Leon’s passing on an off night is still top shelf

  195. BONE207 says:

    OilClog:
    They let Nuge go to Mexico with undiagnosed broken ribs, man this franchise.

    But they did get his teeth fixed

  196. Rebilled says:

    Shades of Sekera.

  197. StixMalone says:

    Pouzar:
    Never change TMc.

    #stubborncoach

  198. BONE207 says:

    Pouzar:
    Never change TMc.

    Isn’t that the sure fire way to…you know…into the sun?

  199. OmJo says:

    Nuuuuuge!!

    Listening to CHED, and just tuned in so no idea how they’ve looked.

    But Nuge scored and McDavid assisted so I don’t care.

    Nuuuuuge!!

  200. JD_Wry says:

    OmJo: no idea how they’ve looked.

    In a word, fugly.
