G66 2017-18: Coyotes at Oilers

The Arizona Coyotes are probably an ideal match for trade this summer. The Oilers are apparently all about OEL (Pierre Lebrun recently stated he had no doubt Edmonton would be a suitor among many for him if the Swede doesn’t sign in Phoenix) and might be open to acquiring some expensive contracts if the overpay is substantial. I’m thinking the first-round pick, or Jesse Puljujarvi or maybe Oscar Klefbom. Edmonton might be doing something drastic, and the Coyotes are a possibility. None of these moves are recommended by this blog.

THE ATHLETIC!

Great 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.

DESERT WINDS, YEAR OVER YEAR

  • March 2016: 2-0-0, goal differential +5 (4 points)
  • March 2017: 2-0-0, goal differential +4 (4 points)
  • March 2018: 0-2-0, goal differential -3 (0 points)
  • March 4, 2016: Columbus 6, Edmonton 3 (Source)
  • March 10, 2017: Pittsburgh 3, Edmonton 2 (SO) (Source)

Gack! March has been a good month for Todd McLellan during his Oilers run but this season is a different story. A lost campaign means the minds are wandering and (as we saw Saturday) not everyone is ready to sing from the same page of the songbook.

AFTER 65, YEAR OVER YEAR

  • Oilers 15-16: 24-34-7, goal differential -44 (55 points)
  • Oilers 16-17: 35-22-8, goal differential +18 (78 points)
  • Oilers 17-18: 27-34-4, goal differential -35 (58 points)
  • March 3, 2016: Edmonton 4, Philadelphia 0 (Source)
  • March 7, 2017: NY Islanders 4, Edmonton 1 (Source)

Edmonton is on pace for 73 points based on the first 65 games of the year. Really we’re down to Connor McDavid winning another scoring championship, 75 points for Leon, 20 goals for Nuge and how close to 15 can Jesse Puljujarvi get before game 82.

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM MARCH

  • At home to: Nashville, NY Rangers, Arizona, NY Islanders, Minnesota (Expected 2-3-0) (Actual 0-2-0)
  • 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: 0-2-0, 0 points in two games

There are games I’m looking forward to, Islanders, Flames twice, maybe the club can ruin some California fun. That final Vancouver game might be for lottery position, incredibly.

If you forced me to give you an answer on who Edmonton might have on their list after Dahlen (among defencemen) my guess is Quinn Hughes (followed, probably, by Evan Bouchard). However, Adam Boqvist is a fascinating name (I have him at No. 6) and maybe he’s the pick. I’ll have the ’93 best players in the 2018 draft’ up in the next few days.

ARIZONA, TAKE OFF YOUR RAINBOW SHADES

The Dave Bolland trade burns off summer 2019, meaning the Arizona Coyotes may have some free cash available to take on a big contract. We always talk about Milan Lucic as the option, but Andrej Sekera is at $5.5 million through summer 2021.

  • OEL makes $5.5 million and is UFA 2019 summer. The deal would need to go down after July 1 so he could be signed long term.
  • Max Domi is $833,333 and is RFA this summer. His name was in the rumor mill and he might be a ‘buy low’ option for Edmonton.

Edmonton needs to send away more money than is coming in (the cap will be tight and any relief will help) and perhaps these names could be in play.

  • Oscar Klefbom, $4.167 million through 2023. A wonderful player and contract.
  • Milan Lucic, $6 million through 2023.
  • Andrej Sekera, $5.5 million through 2021.
  • Jesse Puljujarvi, who is still in his entry-level deal.
  • The 2018 first-round selection, likely inside the top 10 overall.

Perhaps the deal surrounds Klefbom and Puljujarvi, with Lucic added to the group. Arizona might send back a signed OEL, Max Domi and Edmonton retains some money on the Lucic deal.

TRADING PULJUJARVI?

I’ll be looking at this over at The Athletic this week, one of the things management has to do is make damned good and sure they don’t waste this player. If the club can’t develop him, doesn’t believe he can get to the next level (JP is 1.49/60 scoring 5×5 now), doesn’t see him as McDavid’s shooter, then they need to cut bait before he has the value of Nail Yakupov. One of the issues this winter has been so many kids auditioning and so few certainties on the roster. Related: Edmonton traded Jordan Eberle on June 22, 2017. Thomas Vanek signed with Toronto September 1. Edmonton didn’t use the $3.5 million cap savings on another player. Why? WHY? Why would a veteran general manager choose to pass on an opportunity to add a free agent like Vanek to offer cover? Strange.

I have received many dm’s and messages asking me about this player. He’s a big man with speed, he is 24 and played Division three NCAA. I reached out to Mark Divver who told me a bunch of teams were following his progress in the last few weeks. One suspects the speed attracted the Oilers (size is the new speed) and that he’ll begin his career in the AHL. After that, we cannot say.

LOWDOWN WITH LOWETIDE

A busy show, beginning at 10 this morning, TSN1260. Scheduled to appear:

  • Pierre Lebrun, TSN and The Athletic. Islanders dropping, Panthers prancing.
  • Vinnie Iyer, The Sporting News. NFL Draft and Kurt Cousins’ destination.
  • Jason Gregor, TSN1260. Oilers game tonight! What matters?

10-1260 text, @Lowetide on twitter. See you on the radio! I’m also on the roundtable with Tom Gazzzola at nine! PS, a trusted source told me we might see a trade today involving a minor league veteran.

    Munny:
    Apparently Drai says “Nein!” to any OEL trade.

    You’d think he’d be Oliver one, if it led to him having a good passing D to back him up.

  2. Lowetide says:

    Milan Lucic scored.

  3. Dicky94 says:

    Get him the puck. !!

  4. Crazy Pedestrian says:

    Who’s the one that called that today?

  5. Gerta Rauss says:

    lol

    good for him

    Suck it Taylor!

  7. Material pocession says:

    How many times did Modano score a goal like that against the Oilers?

  8. Munny says:

    Pouzar: Kevin Quinn

    Well, that’s a Given.

  9. stevezie says:

    russ99:
    If making summer trades isn’t the answer, what’s the answer?

    Another rebuild? 3-5 more years of losing? McDavid & Draisaitl getting traded for more dreams and wishes?

    Can’t happen. Fans need to get over their attachments to certain players.

    I’d move anyone not listed above to get us on track.

    Well, of course. I think all of use would move anyone to get us back on track. I don’t want to speak for our host, y my concern over a Klefbom deal has little to do with my attachment to Klefbom, and a lot more to do with how unlikely we are to win it.

    He’s coming off a career worst year. His value is low.

    Also his contract is even dreamier than his abs. Because we’re spending so much in other places, a cheap top 4 defenceman is probably a lot more valuable to us than he is to teams not in such a cap crunch.

    Trading him probably doesn’t get us back on track. That’s why I hope they don’t.

    But I would love to divest of Sekera, a player I really like. I agree with your general point on attachment.

  10. Pouzar says:

    Love Aberg. Need more “shoot first ask questions later” type dudes.

  24. Material pocession says:

    Klefbom misses a wide open net! How the hell did he miss that?

  25. Professor Q says:

    Klefbom with a wide open net and opportunity for McPoints and he flops it.

  26. Réal Goudenyéu says:

    Klefbom will never score again?

    Ethan was a hawk on that attempt

    Now tell me he couldn’t have done that from the 3rd line.

  41. Wilde says:

    Crazy period.

    Multiple missed open nets for both teams.

    7-4 HDCF for ARI.

    Bear and Klef had a tough period, couple long shifts in their own zone with the 97 line on. One really bad one where Caggiula had changed in from my memory, 2-5 HDCF.

  42. Pouzar says:

    Well that was odd Hamonic.

    https://streamable.com/zzovm

  43. OmJo says:

    Not gonna lie, in all seriousness, I’m very happy for Lucic ending the streak.

  45. npanciroli says:

    JD_Wry,

    Awful.

  46. BONE207 says:

    I love the idea of streaming the game. Currently the Fox broadcast but it gets so quiet as they don’t show commercials. I feel lonely then…

  47. Réal Goudenyéu says:

    Professor Q: I actually really enjoy GATTACA.

    “For someone who was never meant for this world, I must confess I’m suddenly having a hard time leaving it. Of course, they say every atom in our bodies was once part of a star. Maybe I’m not leaving… maybe I’m going home.”

    Maybe not under-rated but perhaps under-appreciated.

  48. OmJo says:

    BONE207:
    I love the idea of streaming the game. Currently the Fox broadcast but it gets so quiet as they don’t show commercials. I feel lonely then…

    Yeah the silence is deafening. Though all you’re missing is low budget car dealership commercials.

    Oh and thoughts and prayers for you having to watch the Yotes stream.

  49. BONE207 says:

    Fox calling Edmonton as being not particularly fast except for a couple players. Which means Arizona is slower today

  50. OmJo says:

    I can’t get excited for a 3-1 lead anymore.

    Thanks Oilers.

  51. BONE207 says:

    OmJo,

    That’s my choice. Break from Drew

  52. OmJo says:

    Lucic scored. Russell prevented a zone entry.

    What is going on today?

  53. BONE207 says:

    OmJo:

    Didn’t Caggs also set up Poolparty?

    It is not a strong film. I’d elaborate further if we weren’t amidst game.

  55. Dicky94 says:

    BONE207,

    I would take Kevin and Drew any day over having to listen to Tyson Nash. Absolute idiot. Just like when he played the game.

  56. Gerta Rauss says:

    BONE207: Didn’t Caggs also set up Poolparty?

    That was Nuge

  57. OmJo says:

    Well the PK isn’t looking very good.

    Oh shit its 5v5.

  58. Pouzar says:

    Poor Khaira…If that guy ever had linemates that line 4 could be dangerous.

  59. Dicky94 says:

    Looch still Looching.

    McDavid is playing 1 way hockey tonight

    Frustrating. I wanna see Nuge with McDavid already. Let Drai drive his own line.

  63. Lowetide says:

    What a play by Nuge. Lordy.

  64. Munny says:

    Well I’ll never say Cags doesn’t have any scrappiness in him.

  65. JD_Wry says:

    Wow, Drake goes Domi. Huh.

    Hope Maxwell gets his chance with the guy who actually cross checked him.

  66. OmJo says:

    Holy shit Cagguila

  67. treevojo says:

    Even ol pouzar has to give some props to the drake on that one.

  68. Munny says:

    Lowetide:
    What a play by Nuge. Lordy.

    My question is why were both he and Nurse covering the near side boards?

  69. Pouzar says:

    JD_Wry: Hope Maxwell gets his chance with the guy who actually cross checked him.

    I hope it wasn’t Khaira for his sake.

  70. npanciroli says:

    Cagguila looks much better on fourth line. Khaira is a nasty dude, love his game.

  71. LMHF#1 says:

    I don’t like the hockey player, but props to 91 on that one.

  72. Pouzar says:

    treevojo:
    Even ol pouzar has to give some props to the drake on that one.

    Mad respect for that.

  73. Crazy Pedestrian says:

    Munny:
    Well I’ll never say Cags doesn’t have any scrappiness in him.

    Yep. Probably getting an extra 2 min for taking off his helmet though

    EDIT: nm. Not a “fight” apparently

  74. Confused says:

    The season is dead.

    Can someone explain to me, why I am still having to watch Cammy on the second line?

  75. Munny says:

    Pouzar: I hope it wasn’t Khaira for his sake.

    It was.

  76. BONE207 says:

    Pouzar: Frustrating. I wanna see Nuge with McDavid already. Let Drai drive his own line.

    Oilers trolling you.
    Your comments are more of an art form when you write them under duress

  77. Southern Oil says:

    Well I’m not sure Drake’s a player, but I just gained a bunch of respect for the guy. Love how he pulled off the helmet / shield. Used to bother me to no end when Iginla used to fight with the half shield against the Oil and the media would go on and on about him.

  78. Munny says:

    Strome with some filth now.

  79. Pouzar says:

    BONE207: Oilers trolling you.

    I can’t have nice things.

  80. npanciroli says:

    All he needs is a beard and some bad breath.

    Cheer for your home team…

  83. Réal Goudenyéu says:

    Munny: It is not a strong film. I’d elaborate further if we weren’t amidst game.

    I’d love that conversation, particularly your definition of “strong”.

  84. Munny says:

    Camo with some good work in the slot at the end of the Yotes PP

  85. Munny says:

    Réal Goudenyéu,

    I will try and circle back to it when I have time.

  86. Pouzar says:

    BONE207: Cheer for your home team…

    I will find you

  87. OmJo says:

    Watching this game, I’ve come to two conclusions.

    1. OEL is an incredibly talented defenceman who I want on this team.
    2. I don’t want Domi on this team.

  88. treevojo says:

    Did somebody sacrifice original pouzar so that Lucic would score today?

  89. BONE207 says:

    Pouzar: I will find you

    The joy in your heart will overcome the blood in your eyes. Hockey in June???

  90. Dicky94 says:

    OmJo,

    I agree. Especially #2. We don’t need two Caggs.

  91. Réal Goudenyéu says:

    Munny:
    Réal Goudenyéu,

    I will try and circle back to it when I have time.

    Thanks!

  92. Wilde says:

    This is a truly horrifying period.

  93. Munny says:

    The curse has been passed from Looch to McDavid.

  94. OmJo says:

    treevojo:
    Did somebody sacrifice original pouzar so that Lucic would score today?

    Sacrifice is such an ugly word.

  95. BONE207 says:

    PP…Free Slepy

  96. Munny says:

    Nice to see Bear unleash one, and Khaira out on a PP.

  97. BONE207 says:

    OmJo: Sacrifice is such an ugly word.

    Trade is more civil

  98. treevojo says:

    OmJo: Sacrifice is such an ugly word.

    Lol

    What’s the cut off date for our bet again?

    Draft?

  99. OmJo says:

    I’m not against Ethan Bear being on PP2. Just for the record.

    But what the fuck? What happened to needing to earn PP time?

  100. Pouzar says:

    BONE207: Hockey in June???

    Only if you buy me dinner first!

  101. BONE207 says:

    OmJo:
    I’m not against Ethan Bear being on PP2. Just for the record.

    But what the fuck? What happened to needing to earn PP time?

    Only applies to russians

  102. npanciroli says:

    BONE207,

    And Finns.

  103. BONE207 says:

    Pouzar: Only if you buy me dinner first!

    Well they might have to win a series or 2

  104. OmJo says:

    Not the sexiest period ever but still up 3-1. Beggars can’t be choosers.

  105. Crazy Pedestrian says:

    2 periods done, still no McPoints… Double Blasphemous!!!

  106. Wilde says:

    The Strome line should really have Khaira on it.

    They’ve got their shit pushed in by… everybody this game.

    2 minutes vs every C on the Coyotes, 25% shot attempts.

    Yeah.

  107. Dicky94 says:

    I’d like to see Aberg play with McDavid if they don’t give Nuge a shot. The kid has some skillz.

  108. OmJo says:

    That was dirty by Kessel.

  109. OmJo says:

    BONE207: Only applies to russians

    Yup. I hope, for his sake, we don’t draft Svechnikov this summer.

    npanciroli:
    BONE207,

    And Finns.

    Unless your name is Pakarinen.

  110. treevojo says:

    OmJo,

    Or was it the Stanley cup?

  111. Lowetide says:

    After two

    3-1 EDmonton (no score in second)
    Shots 25-22 Arizona (12-5 Arizona in the second)
    Corsi for 5×5 41-24 Arizona (21-6 Coyotes in the second)


    Need more Corsi’s in the third

  112. LadiesloveSmid says:

    OmJo:
    I’m not against Ethan Bear being on PP2. Just for the record.

    But what the fuck? What happened to needing to earn PP time?

    is the PP not like 8% since January? Nobody’s earned that time

  113. Munny says:

    Have no idea what Strome’s thought process was there.

  114. Pouzar says:

    Khaira’s offensive zone possession game completely negated with Caggs/Pak.

  115. Munny says:

    Russell probably just put a poultice on that injury

  116. OmJo says:

    To me, the problem with trading Nuge is this: this teams only strength is C and LD, very poor on both wings and RD. If you trade Nuge, our C depth isn’t much better than the wing or RD depth. You aren’t getting two top six wingers for Nuge. So trading him in what I can only assume will be a one-for-one trade won’t help this team as much as keeping him. All it will really accomplish is making the C depth closer to weakness as the wing and RD depth.

    Or you trade him for a RD. Who? Tyson Barrie? Taylor Hall gets you Adam Larsson one-for-one. So Nuge will not get us a RD that is better than Adam Larsson (this isn’t a dig at Larsson). Do you give up Nuge for a top-4 RD? I don’t.

    He has the most value out of the tradable players on the team, but that isn’t saying much considering who the tradable players are. He has more value to this team than he does in a trade, IMO.

  117. Pouzar says:

    Not that I think Cammy is a long term solution but he already had chemistry with Drai, keep those guys together and send Nuge up with McDavid.

  118. BONE207 says:

    Munny:
    Russell probably just put a poultice on that injury

    Poultice…is that some kind of chicken product?

  119. OmJo says:

    treevojo:
    OmJo,

    I don’t get it lol

  120. BONE207 says:

    BONE207:
    PP…Free Slepy

  121. OmJo says:

    BONE207: Poultice…is that some kind of chicken product?

    It’s poutine with chicken and rice.

  122. JD_Wry says:

    Munny:

    Where does he get ‘eye of newt’ on the bench?

  123. OmJo says:

    LadiesloveSmid: is the PP not like 8% since January? Nobody’s earned that time

    Coach Dink disagrees.

  124. OmJo says:

    We have a player with a <100% shoulder taking shots on the PP 😀

  125. OilClog says:

    The poutine with the chicken and sweat peas, that’s the good stuff.

  126. OmJo says:

    I’m liking Ethan Bear.

  127. Pouzar says:

    Bear lookin good on PP.

  128. JD_Wry says:

    OilClog: sweat peas

    I’ll pass.

  129. Munny says:

    JD_Wry: Where does he get ‘eye of newt’ on the bench?

    From between Looch’s toes, of course.

  130. Professor Q says:

    We have Smoke’s Poutinerie here, and yes, they have a lot of amazing combinations.

    In a lost season, wtf are they not shutting him down for the long term future. The org is ran by someone that plays NHL94 on easy mode and proceed to get their teeth kicked in. You know the people in charge of this would get destroyed in blades of steel everytime with the goal from the boards to the far post.

    Professor Q: Blue Pornstars aren’t that bad.

    Wasn’t that Avatar?

  134. sliderule says:

    The oiler power play would be a hell of a lot better if Bear was kept to run it

  135. Professor Q says:

    They’ve played surprisingly well ocnsidering the last few games. Arizona has just had amazing goaltending, all things considered. Or luck. What have you.

  136. Pouzar says:

    And another ozone possession dies on Caggs stick. So easy to knock off the puck.

  137. Munny says:

    Refs need to #FreeSleppy

  138. OilClog says:

    Professor Q: We have Smoke’s Poutinerie here, and yes, they have a lot of amazing combinations.

    If anyone is ever in Victoria, la Belle petate(sp?) on esquimalt road is the greasy pountine palace people didn’t realize they need in their life. They once made me a traditional poutine with a grilled cheese buried in the middle of it. I blacked out, it was glorious

  139. OmJo says:

    Professor Q: Blue Pornstars aren’t that bad.

    Smurfs?

  140. Pouzar says:

    Sigh. I give up expecting blatantly obvious calls to be made.

  141. frjohnk says:

    Ethan Bear looked pretty good on the PP. Has a good shot, and can get it off quickly but what Im impressed about most with is his IQ and passing. Heads up player, sees the ice well.

  142. OmJo says:

    Pouzar:
    Sigh. I give up expecting blatantly obvious calls to be made.

    Welcome to the NHL, kid *crosschecks you head first into the boards right in front of a ref*

  143. Lowetide says:

    Mistake by Nuge there.

  144. Crazy Pedestrian says:

    Eek… I think Nuge screwed that up…

  145. Munny says:

    Didn’t really want this game to get interesting.

  146. OmJo says:

    Here comes the Oilers!

  147. Pouzar says:

    Over the shoulder Drew?

  148. OmJo says:

    Can the Oilers challenge that?

  149. frjohnk says:

    Lowetide:
    Mistake by Nuge there.

    A reverse to Bear but Bear did not read the play as a reverse.

    EDIT: Looking at the replay, Bear and most of the Oilers stopped skating as the linesmen said “icing”

  150. Munny says:

    Another strange play by Nuge

  151. striatic says:

    Nuge getting too cute in his own zone. yikes..

  152. OilClog says:

    Was/is Katz against the refs association during contract negotiations, like how deep into circle was/is he involved in that. Has he pissed the refs overlord off?

    Swear that goal started on a missed offside call.

  153. Pouzar says:

    Ugh Sek

  154. OmJo says:

    The yotes smell blood.

  155. BONE207 says:

    Don’t tell me another 2 goal late game comeback? Can’t even relax in a nothing game…

  156. Gerta Rauss says:

    OmJo:
    I can’t get excited for a 3-1 lead anymore.

    Thanks Oilers.

    Now see what you’ve done…:)

  157. Munny says:

    Horrible call after letting the Sleppy one go.

  158. Spooky Lynx says:

    I’m getting flashbacks to Ryan Whitney after seeing Sekera getting burned on the outside there.

    There’s a la Belle patate in Canmore

  160. Pouzar says:

    Munny:
    Horrible call after letting the Sleppy one go.

    Didn’t earn it.

  161. treevojo says:

    OmJo,

    I’m pretty sure we bet 100$ donation to Lowetide with regards to the gm or head coach being fired.

    If not, the lsd from high school is starting to turn things south in treevojo world.

  162. Munny says:

    Home PK has definitely been regressing to the road success as of late.

  163. Pouzar says:

    I like Drai in OT

  164. JD_Wry says:

    treevojo: the lsd from high school

    As long as you’re not a closet soda drinker.

  165. striatic says:

    Munny:

    Is it still historically bad overall?

  166. BONE207 says:

    Pouzar:
    I like Drai in OT

    I wonder if TMac would put Bear out in OT?

  167. Munny says:

    Fuck.

  168. Pouzar says:

    Pouzar:
    I like Drai in OT

  169. JD_Wry says:

    Wait – I’ve seen this one before…

  170. OmJo says:

    treevojo:
    OmJo,

    I’m pretty sure we bet 100$ donation to Lowetide with regards to the gm or head coach being fired.

    If not, the lsd from high school is starting to turn things south in treevojo world.

    lol yeah we did, looks like you’re gonna win it too if Bob is telling the truth.

  171. Spooky Lynx says:

    Hilarious.

  172. Melvis says:

    Fuckin Gack. With an added chooka la funga. Saw that coming.

  173. Munny says:

    Pouzar:
    I like Drai in OT

    See what you’ve done?

  174. Réal Goudenyéu says:

    Howtolose101

  175. Pouzar says:

    BONE207: I wonder if TMac would put Bear out in OT?

    TMc would put A Bear out in OT.

  176. Lowetide says:

    Man this team cannot find the end of the season quickly enough.

  177. OmJo says:

    Gerta Rauss: Now see what you’ve done…:)

    Well fuck me…

  178. striatic says:

    This team.

  179. Munny says:

    striatic: Is it still historically bad overall?

    Dunno for sure. I imagine the home record has a ways to go to dig itself out of a historical hole.

  180. Pouzar says:

    Munny: See what you’ve done?

    Sorry…no way we get to OT.

  181. SayItAin'tSo, Gretz, SayItAin'tSo! says:

    Top 4 forwards on the team with some epic bedshitting the last 5 minutes minutes

    Ouch

  182. Gerta Rauss says:

    We might not even make it to OT with this shyte

  183. Crazy Pedestrian says:

    McDavid still needs to get some McPoints dammit!!

  184. treevojo says:

    OmJo: lol yeah we did, looks like you’re gonna win it too if Bob is telling the truth.

    Oh I don’t know about that.

    The OBC is swarming like flies on shit.

    It’s got to be one of those two dates.

    When the time comes I will go back and do a search if you don’t remember the date.

  185. Crazy Pedestrian says:

    ••••••

  186. Lowetide says:

    Nuge is lucky there, that could have been a penalty.

  187. OmJo says:

    How was that not a penalty? I mean, to be fair here. Brutal fucking reffing.

  188. OilClog says:

    Nuge just killed a man

  189. Munny says:

    Pouzar: Sorry…no way we get to OT.

    That was a really good try. Turned the play.

  190. BONE207 says:

    Nuge says…you want to trade me for him? He’s broken

  191. Crazy Pedestrian says:

    McDavid OT point? Come on McD!!!

  192. OilClog says:

    Refs CBA has one more season left from best that google tells me.

  193. Professor Q says:

    Well that was surprising. I left for a quick shower and of course Arizona ties it.

  194. OmJo says:

    We’ve blown 2-goal leads in 4 of the last 7 games.

  195. treevojo says:

    BONE207:
    Nuge says…you want to trade me for him? He’s broken

    That’s funny

  196. Munny says:

    McPoint time

  197. striatic says:

    OmJo:
    We’ve blown 2-goal leads in 4 of the last 7 games.

    Why, and how does the team stop it from happening in the future?
