Canucks at Oilers PS G8/09-10

Cut-down day for the Edmonton Oilers is apparently tomorrow (they have until Wednesday). A bunch of young men will be driving to the airport in the next few days and the waiver wire may mean a couple don’t return to good old our town as Oilers.

The drama has probably been mitigated (at least somewhat) because of injuries to forwards Marc Pouliot, Ethan Moreau and Fernando Pisani (Pisani was the only one who was at practice yesterday).

Jason Gregor has been reporting lately that the Predators may have interest in one of Edmonton’s veteran forwards and that may happen as well. Would the organization feel that getting a second round pick for Nilsson (and keeping someone like Ryan Stone) is better than risking waivers? Seems reasonable, as does placing Pouliot on IR to begin the season.

There are no lineups so far but I’ll post them when they appear. The Oilers get one last look at the bubble boys and someone may step up and grab a job even this late. I’d say both Jacques and Stone are on the team and that Schremp and Reddox are not but those are just guesses on my part.

And since this season is once again about watching the youngsters develop and waiting another day to fight, here’s a couple of encouraging updates:

  • Slava Trukhno scored twice in a pre-season win for Springfield.
  • MPS played significant (14) minutes and scored for Timra in the first SEL regular season game for his team.

UPDATE: The lines.

  • Horcoff-Jacques-Hemsky: Looks like this line has some traction and coach Quinn will run with the big Q kid. Can he pot 20 on Hemmer’s wing?
  • O’Sullivan-Penner-Comrie: O’Sullivan and the little Brick man have real chemistry and Penner should help out this line in the offensive zone. The questions revolve around bleeding the other way and we shall see. Penner’s in the Stone spot here.
  • Gagner-Cogliano-Stortini: Interesting line, Stortini gets a push and if he could ever score 15 goals on a line with two munchkins the Oilers would solve some problems.
  • (possibly Brule-Reddox-MacIntyre): No confirmation I can find currently but if the veterans are injured this might be the 4line. Brule certainly has gotten the push (this will be his 5th game) and is the only one of the three certain to be part of the opening night lineup.
  • Souray-Staios: Two veterans who should be able to handle things down low.
  • Grebeshkov-Gilbert: I see a bunch of “Gilbert sucks” comments all over the internet, I wonder if people know his pre-season stats are 4gp, 2-4-6 +5. I suspect Grebs wears the urban sombrero tonight and plays well.
  • Visnovsky-Smid: This is an interesting combination. I think we might see it from time to time this winter.
  • Khabibulin-Deslauriers: Habby gets the start, hopefully doesn’t over handle the puck.

    Bruce – preseason is almost over, you weren't really worried, were you?

    bookie – lol – hey I hope I eat my words, remember, but you're going to need something to even it out if you're this high after one period of a preseason game ;)

    nice period though, here's hoping

  2. Lowetide says:

    BDHS: I don't know what is more upsetting: Diane Lane leaving a room or the pork situation. Either way, your wife will be pissed and it's all your fault.

    Whenever I'm in that kind of trouble, I like to confuse my wife by using words like louvre and spatula.

  3. Promethian says:

    NB –

    This is first-half Sam.

    When he realises that the season starts in October and not Feb, he'll be TWICE as good!

  4. Woodguy says:

    "JFJ = this year's Milan Lucic?

    Has someone already proposed that?

    Am I deluded?"

    Kessel and Savard were magic together.

    Horcoff and Hemsky are good, but not that good.

    Lucic is a better skater than JFJ too.

    All that being said, I'm really looking forward to seeing them play together.

    If for nothing other than to watch JFJ beat the crap out of Regehr a few times.

    Speaking of, better take RedOx off the shorty line and put Zorg there so Gagner can live to see the regular season.

  5. bookie says:

    Gagner and Cogs will be facing 3rd line opposition, that will open up some space for them I suspect.

  6. bookie says:

    Those were nice goals. I hope we have a season of those…

  7. Coach pb9617 says:

    Two goals by his line, and that bum Penner doesn't even have a point.

    Brother has 2 S.

    That would be two Staples

  8. Bruce says:

    Bruce – preseason is almost over, you weren't really worried, were you?

    Actually, yes. Visnovsky was -5 throu 3 games and looked tentative when he didn't look flat out brutal. As for Hemsky, last year he never showed up until November. The couple games I've seen him this camp he looked like PCS might still be an issue. So yes, I was concerned.

  9. the 0 in 0rca is for 0 cups says:

    good period. if spaghettigo gets hurt this year, the 'nucks are in for it. 'nucks.

  10. Bruce says:

    Coach: Yeah I was going to mention "unofficial assists". Penner's got two of them already tonight fersher.

  11. bookie says:

    Brother has 2 S.

    That would be two Staples

    DStaples gives out 'assists' based upon whether or not you help a goal get scored or not. Touching the puck is not a factor. Screening, raising hell in front of the net, clearing space, etc…

  12. Bruce says:

    Nice rush by Hemsky, but that two-foot pass by Horcoff was pure gold.

  13. Black Dog says:

    Stupid wolverines.

    And the dog just slept through the whole thing. What the hell.

    Not my fault though. Its that damn Grebeshkov.

    ;)

  14. doritogrande says:

    Fuck Hemsky! It's PRESEASON!

  15. Bruce says:

    Two more fine puck possession plays by Penner, one on O'Brien in the corner and one backchecking on Bieksa in the neutral zone. The big guy sure knows how to get that mammoth frame in the way of the bad guys.

  16. bookie says:

    We're doomed!

  17. doritogrande says:

    It's nice to see this Shirokov fellow. Hope he gets sent down to Manitoba this year. We need some offensive punch with Krog, Jaffray and Cullen all gone for sure and Grabner likely with the Nucks.

  18. Temujin says:

    Salo = Boom

    Wooo :-)

  19. Bruce says:

    Brutal giveaway by Gilbert right in front … and there's a second.

  20. Black Dog says:

    Bruce, maybe I'm misremembering, as Roger would say, but Hemsky was averaging over a PPG for the first fifteen games or so, iirc. Led the league in PPG on the road, I'm pretty sure? At least until the end of that awful seventeen to eighteen games they started the year with when they were on the road for most of it.

    No?

  21. doritogrande says:

    Rod's right, that's off Visnovky. Don't think Khabibulin had a chance.

  22. Alice says:

    Not my fault though. Its that damn Grebeshkov.//

    Meaning he's been letting you at his stash, I guess!

  23. Lowetide says:

    Gilbert forgot the tinfoil hat tonight.

  24. flamingpavelbure says:

    JFJ /=/ Lucic

    Lucic, once in juniors, checked 3 guys in 20 seconds, than fighted the 4th guy coming in, and he owned him. That and and making Mike Van Ryn feel like he was just checked by a bear.

  25. doritogrande says:

    Does the entire team know how to cycle? Lordy, they Canucks are amazing at that.

  26. Bruce says:

    Bruce, maybe I'm misremembering

    Roger, you misremember. In 9 games last October Hemsky had 0 goals and 0 plus games (net -4). Scored a few PP assists but produced the mean square root of fuck all at evens. Woke up in November when Penner went on his line, and was real good from then until he got tootooed.

  27. Alice says:

    There's some tape for remedial watching. Holy shit.

  28. Lowetide says:

    Cogliano looked like he got hurt on that play.

  29. Bruce says:

    Maybe we do need a new building. We've had Shitty Second Period Syndrome in this one since forever. No sign of a cure.

  30. bookie says:

    I am not sure if anyone has mentioned this before, but we seem to have some challanges on the PK.

  31. Temujin says:

    Shirokov is like Bure and Mogilny, except Shirokov can pass too :-)

  32. doritogrande says:

    F*#^. Cogliano down and a tie game.

    F*^%.

  33. oilerdago says:

    This is like watching my son's game this afternoon. Good 1st period, lousy 2nd.

    Best line of the game came from his coach, (Stu Grimson), "just cause you played one good period does not mean you don't have to work in the 2nd.

  34. Black Dog says:

    They're not going to have to cut anybody, guys keep going down.

  35. Black Dog says:

    Bruce – you're like Garcia on Criminal Minds, eh? With the data I mean. Are you in a room surrounded by dozens of computers spitting out stats?

  36. Coach pb9617 says:

    Not my fault though. Its that damn Grebeshkov.

    At least you know he brings the good stuff.

  37. doritogrande says:

    Cogliano's back out.

    Phew.

  38. bookie says:

    They're not going to have to cut anybody, guys keep going down.

    Schremp has his voodoo doll going full tilt.

  39. doritogrande says:

    And now Gagner's down.

    F*#^

  40. Steve says:

    Toskala's let in seven so far tonight. Looks like the Leafs have fixed their goaltending issues.

  41. Lowetide says:

    Penner's looking much better this season. No KFC stains on his jersey either.

    Jacques damn good.

  42. flamingpavelbure says:

    Jacques (Horcoff,Souray)

  43. Yeti says:

    Wow, new fit and healthy JFJ.
    But … how long before Jacques cracks his back?

  44. bookie says:

    I always knew that MacT was just holding JFJ down.

  45. Temujin says:

    Oh poo.

    That must have been goalie interference somehow. Clearly.

  46. Black Dog says:

    Well I just saw another beautiful PP goal, this time by Jacques.

    So coach, its beyond good. Its completely fucking mental.

  47. bookie says:

    I don't know what the season holds, but it seems to me like excitement and stress may be big!

  48. doritogrande says:

    JF Jacques. Lordy. Great vision by both Hemsky and Horcoff there.

  49. Bruce says:

    Are you in a room surrounded by dozens of computers spitting out stats?

    BDHS: Nope, one little laptop with a split screen. Game on one side, 'net on the other. All those game logs are stored at hockey-reference.com. It's up to me to remember the basics ("Hemsky = shitty October"), then it's a quick trip to HR to back it up with the stats.

    The key link, however, is the remembering part.

  50. Lowetide says:

    I know Reddox is the redheaded stepchild but man I like his game. I think he'll have an NHL career.

  51. Yeti says:

    Entertaining, ne c'est pas?

  52. Lowetide says:

    If they had a veteran RH center they could be entertaining and effective too. Is that so fricking difficult?

  53. bookie says:

    If they had a veteran RH center they could be entertaining and effective too. Is that so fricking difficult?

    Chill, LT, its coming.

  54. Lowetide says:

    So is death.

  55. more green says:

    LOL

  56. Stephen says:

    How many times is Rod gonna use the word 'Knife' today? Did he always do this? or did somebody teach him a new word over the summer to help 'spice' things up a bit?

  57. NBOilerFan says:

    Lowetide said…
    I know Reddox is the redheaded stepchild but man I like his game. I think he'll have an NHL career.

    He does have a nice game. Its just unfortunate for him that we have so many small bodies at the same time.

  58. NBOilerFan says:

    Reddox could also be one of those extra peices in a potential trade deal.

    …. you know, like the 5th piece in a deal for Kovalchuk.

    :D

  59. Hemmer'oids says:

    Brule does this wierd hoppy thing when he skates/hits…

  60. Jonathan Willis says:

    I'm sure it's been mentioned, but I like this Cogliano on the PK idea.

  61. gogliano says:

    Zach Parise wishes he were JFJ.

  62. doritogrande says:

    I love seeing Hodgson perform well but shit.

  63. Jonathan Willis says:

    Great hands by Hodgson? That was all Erhoff.

  64. Lowetide says:

    Well this PK is way better than MacT's.

  65. Temujin says:

    Ehrhoff! Woo :-0

  66. Lowetide says:

    MacIntyre is a very poor skater.

  67. Jonathan Willis says:

    Great job Staios. I see Bergeron's been teaching you.

  68. doritogrande says:

    Canucks score on this PP, Game-winning goal, and then Staios gets sent out.

    I could support that.

  69. Jonathan Willis says:

    LT: Yeah; you can see the effort though.

  70. Jonathan Willis says:

    I've never had any trouble understanding Traktor's love of Cogliano, who is going to be a terrific hockey player.

  71. uni says:

    Cogs draws the penalty, man alive he's a handful to contain when he puts on the afterburners.

    Fishy call though.

  72. Jonathan Willis says:

    These EnMax/ExecuTrade adds better be preseason only.

  73. Lowetide says:

    Which is exactly why I'm happy Cogliano is still on the club.

  74. doritogrande says:

    Brule and Hanssen on the undercard bout.

    Maybe he realized he's in tough for a roster spot and is trying to do anything he can to impress.

    I approve.

  75. Yeti says:

    Creme Brule?

  76. Lowetide says:

    Brule bleeds. I think he'd already won the 4line C job but it's been a good night for him.

    1. Horcoff
    2. Comrie
    3. Gagner
    4. Brule

    Is that the depth chart at C?

  77. Jonathan Willis says:

    I somehow doubt Cogliano ever puts up big point totals. I think he'll be a good hockey player when the two-way game comes around, but I doubt he's ever a good enough powerplay guy to put up huge numbers.

  78. Temujin says:

    Brule just got beat by a Dane :-0

  79. doritogrande says:

    LT:

    Given line chemistry, I prefer;

    Horcoff
    Comrie
    Gagner
    Brule

  80. uni says:

    I don't believe Brule hung in there like he did, guy is like a dynamo, just keeps going. Too bad he's so small and gets knocked around all the time on the ice whenever I see him.

  81. doritogrande says:

    Gagner, what the hell was that?

  82. Jonathan Willis says:

    Darcy Hordichuk, showing why he doesn't get defensive zone draws.

  83. Jonathan Willis says:

    Visnovsky had no business coming up with that puck.

  84. Lowetide says:

    Cogliano has to improve only a little to be a 25-goal man. That's a very valuable player, especially if he can improve without the puck.

  85. Jonathan Willis says:

    LT:

    I don't disagree, but it wouldn't surprise me at all if he never topped the 60-point mark.

  86. Lowetide says:

    Ah, gotcha. Yes, I agree.

  87. Woodguy says:

    Jesus Souray

  88. PunjabiOil says:

    3 PP goals against.

    Ho-hum.

  89. Jonathan Willis says:

    Shiropov?

    Bless you, Rod.

  90. Coach pb9617 says:

    Smid Staios can never be on the ice with Horcoff's line or Comrie's line.

  91. Lowetide says:

    PJ Oil: Yeah. It's kind of a concern but developing these kids 10 at a time is more important.

  92. Yeti says:

    You see, no same sex couples on the smooch-cam. Alberta is clearly homophobic.

  93. Coach pb9617 says:

    You see, no same sex couples on the smooch-cam. Alberta is clearly homophobic.

    ALBERTA IS HOMO-NOTHING, PAL!

  94. Temujin says:

    Yeti: bwa ha haha!

  95. Jonathan Willis says:

    Steve Staios, penalty.

    Colour me shocked.

  96. Yeti says:

    Staois is clearly concerned that, without Moreau on the ice, the Oilers won't have enough opportunity to practice their PK.

  97. Lowetide says:

    4-on-4 who do you want out there?

  98. Jonathan Willis says:

    Yeti: Well, as veteran leaders, they do whatever they can to help the youngsters on the team learn.

  99. Jonathan Willis says:

    LT:

    Cogliano/Penner

  100. Coach pb9617 says:

    4-on-4 who do you want out there?

    Make it more difficult.

    4 on 4 and Horcoff and Hemsky just ended a shift.

  101. Lowetide says:

    Followed by Horcoff/Hemsky. I agree.

  102. boopronger says:

    I don't disagree, but it wouldn't surprise me at all if he never topped the 60-point mark.

    You mean Todd Marchants career high? ;)

  103. Lowetide says:

    Coach: I'd go Cogs/Penner (as Jonathan mentioned) and if 10/83 needed more time I might send out O'Sullivan/Jacques or Comrie.

  104. doritogrande says:

    You see, no same sex couples on the smooch-cam. Alberta is clearly homophobic.

    Clearly you forgot the ever popular girl-on-girl smooch action.

  105. Jonathan Willis says:

    boopronger: Career high? Surely he did it a few times after Doug MacLean paid him for that kind of performance?

  106. Coach pb9617 says:

    Coach: I'd go Cogs/Penner (as Jonathan mentioned) and if 10/83 needed more time I might send out O'Sullivan/Jacques or Comrie.

    Is Penner taking the draw for you?

  107. Lowetide says:

    Last fall at a pre-season game a girl flashed the crowd when I was there. God love women.

  108. Jonathan Willis says:

    Coach: Yep.

  109. Woodguy says:

    PJ Oil: Yeah. It's kind of a concern but developing these kids 10 at a time is more important.

    Keep hanging on LT, you won't be able to use that line next year.

    I hope…

  110. Lowetide says:

    Coach: or one of the defensemen.:-)

  111. doritogrande says:

    That's not a penalty?

    Nice effort by POS nonetheless.

  112. Jonathan Willis says:

    DG: There's no call for "mugging".

  113. Woodguy says:

    How is that not a hold on Sully?

  114. doritogrande says:

    Last fall at a pre-season game a girl flashed the crowd when I was there. God love women.

    Women don't do that. You love 20-something girls.

  115. boopronger says:

    JW,

    He must have, because no player can have a career high playing for the oilers.

  116. Coach pb9617 says:

    My choices would be:

    Penner / O'Sullivan
    Pisani / Cogliano
    Penner / Cogliano
    Pisani / Comrie

  117. Coach pb9617 says:

    Women don't do that.

    You've never been to a Jimmy Buffet concert.

    Or a winery tour weekend.

  118. Jonathan Willis says:

    I hate to depress people, but if Lubomir Visnovsky has a rough first half (and it wouldn't surprise me in the slightest) this team could be in some trouble.

  119. Coach pb9617 says:

    I hate to depress people, but if Lubomir Visnovsky has a rough first half (and it wouldn't surprise me in the slightest) this team could be in some trouble.

    Oh yeah – we're all rainbows and unicorns around here.

  120. Jonathan Willis says:

    Visnovsky with the nasty hit.

  121. bookie says:

    Well, if you turn your back at the last second you deserve the hit.

  122. Lowetide says:

    I think Lubo is one of the guys we shouldn't worry over. He might have some rust to work off but then again the Oilers are deep at the position.

  123. Temujin says:

    Vish = Dirty Silk?

  124. Jonathan Willis says:

    Bookie: Except that Sedin had his back the whole way and just chose not to turn sideways, probably because he figured Visnovsky wouldn't finish.

  125. uni says:

    That was a fairly bad hit, but Lubo by no means drilled him or anything. If he had wanted he could have gone Gary Roberts on him.

  126. bookie says:

    I am starting to think that JFJ could make this team.

  127. Coach pb9617 says:

    It was a Sedin. He should have gone Gary Suter on him.

  128. Jonathan Willis says:

    LT: Except that last year, I would have said that Horcoff was a guy not to worry about.

    As deep as this team is on D, they don't have another guy at Visnovsky's level.

  129. Jonathan Willis says:

    What's with the music?

  130. Jonathan Willis says:

    Coach: You are kidding, right?

  131. Coach pb9617 says:

    Strudwick and Smid is an interesting choice for a 4 on 3 kill.

  132. bookie says:

    PK comes through when it matters.

  133. Coach pb9617 says:

    Coach: You are kidding, right?

    Yes. I like the Sedins.

    If it was Matt Cooke, I wouldn't be.

  134. Jonathan Willis says:

    Bookie: Remember, it's not the percentages, it's the BIG kills ;)

  135. doritogrande says:

    We win a faceoff, we win a game.

    Tom fucking Gilbert.

  136. Jonathan Willis says:

    Nice.

    ~Trade Tom Gilbert immediately.~

  137. bookie says:

    That was fun

  138. danny says:

    im picturing the smugness fade from Temujins face.

  139. Cam says:

    Tom Gilbert sucks.

  140. Lowetide says:

    Brule wins a faceoff and the Oilers score. Beauty.

    Gilbert (Penner, Brule)

  141. Coach pb9617 says:

    Bookie: Remember, it's not the percentages, it's the BIG kills ;)

    Don't do that.

  142. bookie says:

    Bookie: Remember, it's not the percentages, it's the BIG kills

    Well, some penalties are easier to kill than others.

    I am always looking for the happy!

  143. Woodguy says:

    Fun way to end the pre-season.

    Good to see Brule go to the net without the puck,

  144. Temujin says:

    That sucks.

    But Shirokov was the second star.

    The next Bure, folks.

  145. pboy says:

    If it was Matt Cooke, I wouldn't be.

    Amen.

    Please add Derian Hatcher and Robyn Regehr to that list.

  146. Jonathan Willis says:

    So, I got caught up with some family stuff and missed the first two periods, would someone like to tell me who was good/not so good?

  147. Temujin says:

    And yes. Consider my smugness gone.

    :-(

  148. Lowetide says:

    Val Bure? Valerie Bure?

  149. PunjabiOil says:

    Lubomir should be fine, I suspect. The rust will be resolved through passage of time [i.e. games].

  150. NormanMendoza says:

    I like the scoring byline of Gilbert P. Gilbert.

  151. Jonathan Willis says:

    Temujin: You mean Shiropov, right? ;)

  152. doritogrande says:

    But Shirokov was the second star.

    The next Bure, folks.

    How's he been in TC? I'd love to see him play in Manitoba, but don't know where he's stacking up.

  153. Lowetide says:

    Jonathan: Hemsky and Lubo were flying, Jacques is an animal, Penner is turning into something very good and the PK sucks.

  154. Cam says:

    Hemsky took 7 shots.

    I always think he's at his best when he's shooting the puck.

  155. Gnash says:

    Lowetide said…
    Last fall at a pre-season game a girl flashed the crowd when I was there. God love women.

    Wasn't she banned for exposing her live blogging.. or something like that?

  156. Temujin says:

    I don't care how you spell it, but please don't say he's the next Val Bure.

    DG: I like him, even though there is an unfortunate tendency for 3-2 the other way while he is on the ice. Sure does have great hands though.

  157. PunjabiOil says:

    I feel pretty lazy. Woke up at 9:30, breakfast, 1 hour pre-game NFL. 11-5:30 watch NFL. Go to Superstore. Come home, eat dinner and watch Football Night in America.

    It's nice to be done courses for the professional designation – enjoying evenings and weekends the way they were meant to be :)

  158. Jonathan Willis says:

    Quinn press conference almost ready to start.

  159. uni says:

    I think any team would be happy with a Val Bure type player at 163rd overall. Now from the looks of it the kid is better and has some defensive potential, and sure looks like he could be an offensive force but by no means would I consider Valeri Bure to be a disappointment if he carved out a similar career.

  160. flamingpavelbure says:

    Just curious… what is Robbie Schremp doing with the team if he doesn't play? He's just hanging around&

  161. Steve says:

    Just curious… what is Robbie Schremp doing with the team if he doesn't play? He's just hanging around&

    Good question. One possible answer: he's a piece of a possibly impending trade, and Tambellini doesn't want to risk losing him for nothing while that trade is on the table.

  162. Jonathan Willis says:

    FPB: The same thing that all the other scratches do; practice and sit in the pressbox.

  163. bookie says:

    Isn't there some limitations on waiver pickups, so there is a benefit to sending him down in the same 24hr period as all of the other waiver guys who are being sent down.

  164. bookie says:

    Ooooooh, A teaser trailer!

  165. Jonathan Willis says:

    Cuts to be announced at the press conference.

  166. bookie says:

    Training camp cuts to be announced shortly according to the teaser on the Oilers site (its like a grindhouse film or something).

  167. godot10 says:

    I expect just the obvious cuts tonight. DD, Chorney, Brennan, maybe Schremp.

    With more tomorrow.

  168. Coach pb9617 says:

    JW: check da email please

  169. Steve says:

    Stauffer figures there'll be at most five cuts tonight: Brennan, Schremp, Eberle, Chorney, and Dubnyk.

  170. bookie says:

    I am surprised that they are considering that Macintyre is staying. I thought he was gone, but perhaps the GM wants the insurance.

  171. Black Dog says:

    bookie – courtesy for MacIntyre?

    Quinn has said over and over again that his guys have to be able to play

    MacIntyre is a great story but he can't take a regular shift.

  172. Jonathan Willis says:

    Steve MacIntyre's done, I think.

    And I don't think Stone's a huge surprise; he was in the mix with Potulny, Minard and Schremp – and of those four, he probably fits team needs the most.

  173. Lowetide says:

    Leafs just cut Jason Allison and Tie Domi. :-)

    Well, Jason Allison anyway.

  174. godot10 says:

    Hopefully they have a trade for MacIntyre so the Oilers can control where he is going, like the Eastern Conference. Can be for next to nothing, but the trade is better than waiving him.

  175. Jonathan Willis says:

    Six cuts:

    Dubnyk
    Brennan
    Schremp
    Peckham
    Chorney
    Eberle

  176. Lowetide says:

    Well if Brennan gets cut then MacIntyre likely makes the team. Which is wonky because he's an awful skater.

  177. flamingpavelbure says:

    Brennan, Schremp, Eberle.

    Peckham, Chorney and another guy reassigned.

  178. bookie says:

    Well if Brennan gets cut then MacIntyre likely makes the team. Which is wonky because he's an awful skater.

    I think the GM has convinced the coach that they can keep the nuclear deterent for a while until they are certain they do not need him. I am not saying I agree…

  179. Coach pb9617 says:

    Oilers tweeted the cuts before handing them to Stauffer.

  180. danny says:

    Islanders claim sugartits maybe?

  181. Jonathan Willis says:

    LT:

    Brennan had an AHL-only contract, so the Oilers would have had to sign him.

    I think MacIntyre's out too.

  182. Jonathan Willis says:

    Peckham on IR, not cut.

  183. dwillms says:

    Keep Stone, Nilsson, Pouliot (IR)

    Cut MacIntyre, Reddox

    Losing Nilsson on waivers could hurt a lot more down the road than MacIntyre would.

  184. SK Oiler Fan says:

    Barbara anne Scott!
    I'm going to enjoy these Quninisms

  185. SK Oiler Fan says:

    Pou with a Pubus sort of thing?
    This is great stuff.

  186. SK Oiler Fan says:

    Quninn's got the MSM wrapped around his finger already.

  187. bookie says:

    The more I see Grampa Simpson, the more I like him.

  188. bookie says:

    LT has a new blogpost up
