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.

    29 game and 33 game goalless streaks ended for Edmonton (and was it 19 games for Hjalmarsson?). Good vibes.

    Somebody gonna get lucky tonight

  21. Jaxon says:

    Basement dweller drought breakers at their finest tonight. Coyotes help Lucic break his 30 game drought. The Oilers are all like, “Hold my beer” and they help Hjalmarsson break his 70 game drought. Thankfully, the Coyotes weren’t to be outdone and help Klefbom break his drought, too.

  22. Jaxon says:

    Russell looked horrible on Hjalmarson’s goal. Shot blocking like a… errr… walrus? I think he may have even put his glove up in Talbot’s face to block his view for good measure.

  23. Munny says:

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

    Strong for me is unified, cohesive, cinematic, effective, intelligent, deep, has new insight…

    A movie doesn’t have to hit home runs in all of those categories–although the first three are musts– but it should at least be close enough to wink at them.

    As to Gattaca…

    There are many different ways to set up a sci-fi story. One of the more common methods is to take a thread or idea from today’s world and extrapolate it into the future.

    If you are lazy or constrained by budget, you might only extrapolate one or two threads into the future… maybe relying on a stock world for a background–dystopian society, post-apocalyptic wasteland, etc.

    When you can extrapolate a lot of modern society into the future, you have the opportunity to create a rich, complex futureworld fabric.

    Gattaca really only extrapolates one thing into the future (maybe two).. and not in a very believable way. For eg. we already knew about bloodless DNA testing when it was made and that there were other more accurate and less costly biometrics by the time this movie was conceived. Also the lack of any psychological testing in a sci-fi world is a bit difficult to swallow.

    On top of that, we have a futureworld where everything stays the same as it is today (elevators, food etc) and also contains features extrapolated from our past (retro fashion, art design). so really we have no future world other than the two notions extrapolated: space travel and genetics.

    This leads to some unbalanced plot devices and outright holes… like the aforementioned DNA testing just to enter the building. It’s not a cohesive, unified whole, it’s a contradictory mishmash of design and plot.

    That said, money was surely a factor and likely talent on the production side too.

  24. Extend Russell says:

    Pouzar: Mission accomplished. I think you just extended Russell.

    Sploosh

  25. Jaxon says:

    Brutal. This is the second time in the past couple weeks and third time this year that comments have turned nasty like this. I used to love coming on Lowetide during games but the abuse lately just sucks. Grow up people. I’m pretty sure most people who comment like this wouldn’t do it to my face but the great buffer that is the internet turns people into raging as$hats. Is Lowetide the now platform for people to troll and insult each other? WTF!?

  26. Nailer Yakumoto says:

    So we can pencil Bear in for 3 RD and 1 PP next year, right Pete?

  27. JimmyV1965 says:

    Interesting to see Sportsnet do the full-court press on RNH playing centre. If I did a shot every time someone mentioned it, I would have passed out after the second period. Not sure what bugs me more; the rights holder so easily caving to pressure from the team, or the team actually trying to manage the message of such an inconsequential issue. Just run the frickin team and quit trying to manage the expectations of fans and analysts. Being distracted by crap like this does not inspire confidence.

  28. Rondo says:

    Oilers beat the worst team in the league.

  29. Old Timer says:

    The tone of the comments is changing on this site. What was once a respectful forum for hockey discussion has deteriorated recently.

    This saddens me.

    I completely disagree with you. It was a modern take on Brave New World (albeit, I admit, not as endearing or profound), meeting the common and new scientific atmosphere of time, with the recent deciphering of the human genome along with numerous debates about cloning and genetic engineering (the moral ambiguities of such scientific endeavours of perfecting man that way, and the class divides it would present; who would win out? *WHOSE* definition of perfect?) and how that would affect society, especially one bred upon hierarchical, patriarchal, and racial patterns (all very negative; what would the extreme look like, when given power?).

    It still had a profound social and scientific commentary. Which morals would win out? How would science be affected and swayed? How would society fluctuate and deal with the negative issues presented?

    Similar Sci-Fi style to Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein; or the Modern Prometheus”, except obviously intended to be so. Brave New World being the most prominent precursor, as well, for what I can think of.

    It just seems you might have misunderstood the plot/purpose and are concentrating on what it wasn’t and never intended to be, and/or missing the forest for the trees, so to speak. The testing and such were media through which the new caste system was regulated (using both contemporary and newly developed science of the time), but were not the scientific focus of the film itself. That would be the prospect and reality of genetic engineering along with the genetic and monetized caste system in all aspects of human life in that future.

    Todd’s post game comments.

    Source video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8o0z-A91Elk
    ————————————————–
    Q: your thoughts on that as a coach to see that happen as well as me what does that do to the teammates around them
    A: well it’s uh it’s a relief for all of us but a big relief for both of them it’s been a long time coming a lot of chances and opportunities for both of them that haven’t gone in and that’s a heavy weight that both of them have been carrying for two months so to get that off their their back and their shoulders and the teammates the good the good sign for our team is we’re not where we want to be but they all reacted positively to that they’re they’re pulling for teammates they’re happy for them and you look for little team signs like that we give up the two goal lead again but we we stick with things we come back that’s a good sign so we’re trying to find some positive saying in a year that’s been a little bit miserable obviously and we want to continue to to do that down the stretch

    Q: Milan said you had a little joke with him on the bench after that he should keep the puck and I said he can appreciate a little good humor what did you say to Oscar who had an even longer drought?
    A: I haven’t even had a chance yet – to get the trophy maker here in Edmonton to put the two of them together but you know we’re we’re hard on the on the players a lot and you know when they do get that relief we should be participating with them and letting them know that we’re behind them as well so that was a case of looch

    Q: can you just assess your teams night from getting the lead to losing it and eventually winning it?
    A: ups and downs emotional highs some lows you know we’ve we’ve we’ve battled that first goal against all year again that shots going at least 12-15 feet wide and an off a skate and it in you know so that was a bit of a downer but then how are we gonna react we are we gonna roll over and feel sorry for ourselves we didn’t so that’s there’s a negative we turned into a positive short-handed goal penalty kill was real good power play got us one there hasn’t been many nights this year obviously when special teams want us a game tonight was one of those we give up the lead again that’s it emotional downer for us but we find a way to come back so a night of ups and downs some inconsistencies but we found ways to recover

    Q: Talk a little bit about Ryan strome’s game tonight on that short-handed goal he’s showed a lot of real smarts on that play
    A: well he he was smart on that play when he didn’t force a pass short handed and when you force a pass short-handed and it doesn’t work they’re coming back at you with at least a four onto two. he created a good shooting angle and got to the middle of the rink which creates a rebound that’s going to stay in and around the the blue paint rather than from a bad angle where it ricochets to the corner and then get JJ credit for going to to the blue paint and and stopping in there and that doesn’t always happen shorthanded a lot of times guys are building speed to come back just in case but because of what Stromer did to improve the angle it allowed JJ to stop so a smart play on both our behalves

    Q: What did you say to Milan when he came back to the bench?
    A: I just you know he was smiling he was relieved I’m not even sure in his 13 or 14 year career he hasn’t had to deal with that a lot so I just asked him if he if he was gonna keep the puck and he just smiled he goes maybe I should so

    Q: Todd, Aberg a you’ve started to see a few more games from him we saw his speed starting to get more comfortable obviously a guy who’s not afraid to shoot the puck either but what are you starting to see from a player that I don’t know if you knew that much about before I got here what would he like about his game what does he need to work on?
    A: well what we what we did know was through scouting reports and a game or two that he had played against us in the past and so you have to give him some time to to play and then you get to formulate your own opinion. he’s a bright individual first of all he’s a quiet guy he’s a bright individual that I think gets the game as good at anticipatory skills he’s willing to shoot it I think he’ll be an asset on that power play over on that right side on that other unit you know and I think he’s beginning to fit our team young guy traded for the first time European player a lot to adjust to so he’s doing a good job

    Q: you were talking about Aberg there on the powerplay. Puljujarvi scores on the power play tonight and also you had Bear out there on that top unit. it really seemed like they’re able to whip it around a bit did you see some potential those two players moving forward and maybe increasing their power play time
    A: oh I see potential in those in those two forwards of course. as far as increasing the power play time it will come as we go. they got us a big goal tonight. the difference between Ethan and and pontus is the position they play. sometimes a dman can stay a little bit longer you may not have a lot of work. forwards once it’s in the zone have more work down low and they’ve got a buzz around a little bit more. the dman tends to be somewhat stationary unless you’re breaking out a lot so ice time vary’s from forward to D on a power play.

    Q: you had almost 25 minutes from Connor tonight seven shots sets up the winner can you just I mean no one in the NHL has more points than him in the last month or so just put in a perspective what his offensive push is doing to help keep your team somewhat afloat
    A: well I talked about it again this morning. he’s he’s our leader he it’s amazing how many minutes he can play. at 25 he’s probably wishing he got 30 you know but we’re trying to develop a third and a fourth line center right now. It sounds strange it may take a minute or two away from Connor but that’s the situation we’re in, but at 25 minutes he wasn’t tired he just kept going and going and he drives our team. that’s what your captain does and you know we’re going to need that from him as we go forward for the rest of the season to keep our our needle go on the right direction

  32. anduril says:

    I’d like to see:

    RNH – CMD – Pontus/Slepyshev
    27 – 29 – 98
    Cammy/Cags – Strome – Slepyshev/Pontus
    Pakarinen – Khaira – Kassian

    Draisaitl and RNH can be interchangeable with Pontus/Slepyshev shifting to the left-side if RNH drops to the 2nd line. Pakarinen needs to be in the lineup right now for the PK. In the off-season, the Oilers can pickup a veteran RW (e.g., Nyquist, Smith, Ryan) who can compete with Pontus and Slepyshev until one of them locks down the RW spot. I’d replace Cammy/Cags with Pageau or someone like him, a fast, right-shot player who can PK and add additional centre-depth. Maybe we trade Cags and one of the two 3rds we picked up at the deadline for Ryan and Pageau, with the Senators retaining salary on Ryan, and the other 3rd we picked up to Arizona to retain additional salary on Ryan (cut Ryan’s salary in half). If KY happens to push at camp, then Pakarinen falls off, Pageau shifts to 4th line centre with Khaira on the left and KY takes the Cammy/Cags spot on the Strome line. Otherwise, KY in the AHL until he forces a call-up.

  33. Lowetide says:

    I had to time out two valued members of our community tonight, would be a shame to add more. Please be kind to each other please and thanks.

    Oilers still have.

    Sounds like I missed an exciting game and comments section. How did young Bear look tonight?

  36. Gerta Rauss says:

    GMB3:
    How did young Bear look tonight?

    I thought he looked great on PP2-confident with the puck, shooting it at(and hitting) the net when he had a lane

    They’ve got Nuge feeding 3 right hand shots in Bear, Aberg and Jesse(PP goal tonight) on that PP2

    I’m not sure what the fancies say about Bear ES-we’ll find out in the morning

  37. Kinger_Oil.redux says:

    –hudson–,

    “know but we’re trying to develop a third and a fourth line center right now’

    – CYA Nuge….

  38. frjohnk says:

    Kinger_Oil.redux: – CYA Nuge….

    We cant add a significant player without trading one because we are painted into the corner in regards to the salary cap next year.

    It wouldnt be popular as Nuge provides cover for McDavid and Drai in case of injury or loading up a line, but I think one of the plays is to trade Nuge for a player on ELC and a pick/prospect. Get a winger for McDavid. Wait a few years until the NMC’s are done or close, the young wingers are old and good enough to make an impact and the salary cap has increased so we can actually add good UFA’s. By then we should be able to be an annual contender for the Cup.

    I love Nuge and I get what you are saying.
    It’s the fact that Chia will be the one doin the trading and that scares the shit outta me.

  40. frjohnk says:

    Great article on the Athletic by Mirtle comparing Buffalo and Toronto’s “rebuilds”
    I think one could replace Buffalo with Edmonton and most the article would still be spot on.

    “Even when Toronto bottomed out, they didn’t move those core pieces. They didn’t take their rebuild right down to the foundation.
    Buffalo did — and then they burned what was left.
    The Sabres’ other key problem was they tried to accelerate the process out the other side. They got worried when the build up took time. They made questionable trades. They made even worse free agent signings that will hurt them down the line.”

    Looks familiar.

    Dont worry, you are in the majority. About 98% of Oiler fans think the same. Heck even in other markets throughout the league, most media and fans from other teams see the losses in the big Oiler trades. Our GM has become a meme in trades losses in stories from outside the Oiler market.

    I have beat this drum for years.

    You think I point out a cup core for Fun?

    it is what you strive to build and retain/
    you sure as F…… do not dump the players hard to get

    plus that core need dictates true trade value.

    1. Top 10 HD goalie 1 every 3 teams
    Talbot top 5 1 every 6 teams
    I trade a bottom 30 HD dman with bottom 30 EVGA Petry and a 70gm 13g 39P forward (hemsky) every day.

    2. 3+ top 40 HD golaies 1.333 top 40 HD Dmen every team
    Larrson top 5 when traded for 1 every 6 teams

    3. Highest cumulative top 125 Forward totals
    when you look at top 125 fwds (16G 39P)
    there is a cumulative total of
    182 (16g scorers) available from top 120-125 6 per team
    173 (39p scorers) available from top 120-125 5.8 per team
    160 (13 EVG scorers) available from top 120-125 5.3 per team
    XXX (30 EVp)

    last 2 seasons with oilers taylor hall avg
    68gm 20G (20/16 = 1.25) 16 EVG (16/13 = 1.23) 42 EVP/30 = 1.40) 51P (51/39 =1.31)
    52 forwards achieved 20G 16EVG 51P in aseason 1.75 per team
    I would take a top 5 1 per Dman over a top 50 1.75 per team forward relative to buiding a cup core.

    this is how you measure a player.
    not his performance on another team.

    Cause we know what he does Playing in the more demanding WC with Oiler reefing
    and
    Now we know what he does in EC with NJD reefing.
    this portion is a huge factoring in understanding value..

    Eberle last 3 years in Edmonton
    77gm 23G (23/16 = 1.44) 17 EVG (17/13 = 1.31) 54P (54/39 = 1.38) -8

    Strome with oilers on pace for
    82gm 15G/16 = .94) 13EVG/13 = 1.00) 31 EVP/30 = 1.03) 38P/39 = .98) -2

    Lucic this year is on pace for
    82gm 13g/16 = .81) 10EVg/13 =.77) 33 EVp/30 = 1.100 40p/39 = 1.03) -10
    Averge over last 2 seasons
    82gm 18g/16 = 1.13 15 EVG/13 = 1.15) 29EVP/30 =.97) 45 P/39 = 1.15)

    RNH on pace for
    64gm 23G/16 = 1.44) 17EVG/13 = 1.31) 33 EVP/30 = 1.10) 44P/39 = 1.12
    2yr avg
    73gm 21G/16 = 1.31) 15EVG/13 = 1.15) 33 EVP/30 = 1.10) 44P/39 = 1.12

    their is no Reason to consider moving RNH.
    I would rather move Klefbom and Nurse.

    We have Lagesson and Berglund looking mighty fine in SHL.

    81gm 26G/16 = 1.930 23EVG/13 = 1.77 38EVP/30 = 1.27 45P/39 = 1.15
