Oiler fans are trying to come up with a name for the Oilers latest kid line. I’m thinking “H-Bomb”.
Based on Dennis King scoring chances and Gabe Desjardins’ Qual Comp the Edmonton Oilers have their soft minutes, piss cutter scoring line. These kids are putting the pointy end of their boots where the sun don’t shine in what can only be described as dominance.
What does this mean? Well, the Sabres went a long way with the French connection line, but they also had a tough minutes trio (Don Luce-Craig Ramsay-Danny Gare) who made the entire ‘soft parade’ possible.
I think Shawn Horcoff and Ryan Smyth are up to the task, and Ryan Jones hasn’t looked out of place on the line. With the Oilers having only two lines that have scored this season, is there any appetite for moving Petrell or Paajarvi onto that tough minutes line?
What say you?
