OILERS AT 188: GREG CHASE

Pronman: Chase entered the season with a decent amount of hype and he figured to make a push to be drafted in the top two rounds. While he was somewhat underwhelming, his skills make him worth knowing, the best of which is his hockey sense. Scouts praise his offensive mind and vision. He can slow the game down when he has the puck, hit targets through small lanes, and move the puck quickly when need be. He also has good hands, and when he is on, his offensive upside is apparent. His skating earns divided opinions, with one scout calling it a positive, and another saying his first steps can be a tad sluggish. His physical game and consistency are areas of concern as well. He has average size, but he does not tend to be imposing with his board work. Finally, his game-to-game on-ice work ethic could use improvement, especially in the defensive end.

    He has the personality that gets him kicked out of rec league games because he won’t stop being an idiot after being repeatedly warned. Lovely…

  2. Numenius says:

    Well that’s that.

    Interesting that there were no G’s.

  3. Lowetide says:

    RLR has his as possibly the most underrated forward in the draft.

    Oiler’s version of Andrew Shaw?

  5. skidplate says:

    Thank you very much LT. A long day and you kept us all up to date with your posts.

    Now onto Free Agency!!!

  6. rich says:

    Appreciate all the hard work today LT.

    Go have a beer, then have another. You’ve earned it.

  7. PerryK says:

    Yes! Thank you LT for keeping us entertained all day.

  8. spoiler says:

    Much like the Red Wings have done with Mantha and Frk, the Oil pick up a toolsy kid far below his talent projection, sliding due to attitude issues.

    Been a decent draft pick-wise.

    Been a muthafuckin shite draft actual NHL player wise.

  9. striatic says:

    i like this pick for an 8th round selection. player is trending up. it’ll be interesting to see what he does next year.

    Nice rec given RLR said the same of Khaira.

  11. Lowetide says:

    Thanks, fellows. I enjoyed it very much. The NHL side didn’t deliver but there’s some nice value in the draft. Nurse, those Russians, the Q and some nice things later on. I’ve got to ‘review’ for awhile. :-)

  12. TheOtherJohn says:

    LT

    As always superb job!!

    We will get a chance in 3 years to look back at the trade down from 37 with an educated eye. Some very talented players were there for the taking.

    That’s good news

    This team had been a@@#$$less for close to a decade, it’s about time we got some jerks out on the ice instead of the marshmallow parade every year

    and a 0.70 ppg player to boot

    Great pick for the 7th round

  14. jp says:

    Yeah, thanks LT for keeping us posted and finding some perspective on these guys. Suspect you’ve already had a beer, than another. I’m sure there’s room for yet another!

  15. tsg says:

    I’m liking that interview with Yakimov. Sounds like a good kid, and apparently he has some skill. I hope it works out.

  16. SoxandOil says:

    Thanks LT for the forum here for us to follow along the draft.

    I’m amazed at the speed in which you put up these articles. You deserve several cold ones after a long day.

    I wish there was some sort of paypal contribution option here for us to buy you a beer (or 6).

    Surely you people could show a little respect and knock off all this chatter about hockey.
    Lt. Frank Drebin has passed away.

  19. gcw_rocks says:

    A day of trading quality for quantity. So far, not lovin’ the bold moves.

    No one picking Nichushkin in the top 6 really f*^ked over the Oilers, and then trading down out of a supposedly strong second round? Doubt there is a player they drafted after Roy who plays 100 games in the NHL.

    Well, at least Eakins got someone to hang out with at the gym.

  20. bookje says:

    Not a bold day, but not a stupid one. Good late picks, stu must believe in his ability to find late gems.

  21. spoiler says:

    Couple of over-agers taken again this year. That’s starting to become a trend.

    And I’m betting Chase is exactly the pick LT wanted at 185.

    And thank you LT for being such a great host yet again!

    NOW WOULD SOMEONE PLEASE BRING ME MY COBURN!

  22. bookje says:

    The best move for the Oilers today was watching the Dys fuck themselves over with their goaltending.

  23. Ice Sage says:

    Bold is old!

    A fine day for the Oilers. They closed ground on the Schneiderless Canucks and bizarro Flames by drafting competently and often in a strong year. They had a solid game plan, lots of irons in the fire and didn’t overpay.

    Thanks for the draft-bites, LT and Happy Canada Day

    spoiler:

    NOW WOULD SOMEONE PLEASE BRING ME MY COBURN!

    A poster over at ON mentioned Smid and both 2nds was the ask-if that has any truth to it I’m glad Mac T said no. If the motivation for PHI is to shed some salary it’s best to wait-things will move quickly the next 5 days with lots of business to be done. Coburn isn’t worth overpaying for.

    If Holmgren wants a Dman in return I wonder if Schultz Sr at half price ($1.75M) would be attractive.

  25. Kitchener says:

    Yes – the lack of an Epic Fail bold move is good news. Also, the lack of 2nd & 3rd round coke machines is sweet proof that the draft philosophy has changed. Perhaps most importantly, MacT didn’t empty the cupboard to get Schneider.

    The general strategy after the first round (draft often and see who develops) is an interesting one. In order to get lucky, you have to put yourself into position to get lucky. 10 picks is a good way to start.

    Thanks LT – I’d buy you a PayPal beer too!

    Thanks for all the coverage today, Lowetide! As always, your hard work is very much appreciated.

    This. What an intense mixture of emotions: relief, hilarity, disbelief. The Dys seem to be a sinking ship.

  28. Romulus Apotheosis says:

    Pheww… I had to jet for the day right after the Nurse pick.

    Just spent the last hour trying to read through all these posts and the comments. Too much to think about and impossible to form an opinion yet.

    I was really hoping for VN after EL and SM fell… but so what, we got a bucket of Russians anyway.

    Happy Day.

    Thanks for everything LT. Looking forward to your assessment of the day.

  29. justDOit says:

    I’m glad MacT didn’t pay the prices asked today. My biggest fear after checking the trade headlines just after lunch, is that he’d slip afoul into the ‘I don’t want to leave empty handed…’ territory of rookie GM (and pronouncer of all things BOLD).

    The strategy of avoiding a hyped 2nd rounder and turning that pick into five was very interesting. They made five bets for the price of a 37th. A move that was perhaps as odd, but not nearly as frustrating, as looking for knuckle-draggers with good picks.

    I remember Slepyshev from the WJ’s – I think that might be a great pic. He’ll need some Rexall brand supplements to stand a chance of making the team this year, but he’s hoping he’ll have time to work on his game and pack on a little beef.

    Your use of plural negates the joke you’re making, and I am confused by the announcement since he died three years ago.

    He, like Franco, is still dead.

    Canes get Sekera for McBain.

    not bad. i wonder if Edmonton was interested in Sekera at all.

  34. hags9k says:

    As others have mentioned, big thanks to LT for all the effort today. This blog is fuckin awesome.

    I think Nurse has Norris upside, I just think we need him on a fast track for this to really work with the cluster. Here’s hoping he’s a quick study.

    Maybe macT can hit a big fly tomorrow or at least stroke a couple base hits.

    GOILERS

    Captain Happy,

    And I’m not.
