Game 78 2018-19: Ducks at Oilers

“All nemesis” week ends today, as the Oilers spend Tabernac Saturday against the Anaheim Ducks. In a world rife with villains, the Ducks are beyond fiendish. If tonight’s game begins with 10 Oilers goals in the first period and no reply from Anaheim, fans will scream for 20. The Anaheim Ducks are older and faltering, the Getzlaf sneer and the Kesler snarl fading into history via injuries and maladies. Edmonton Oilers fans want the local heroes to hammer the Ducks, to humble Corey Perry and humble him again. If you think I’m kidding, you don’t know Edmonton. Only complete ruination will suffice.

OILERS ALL-TIME MINOR LEAGUE SCORERS AT 20

  1. Miro Satan 1994-95 Cape Breton Oilers: 25, 24-16-40 (1.60)
  2. Daniel Cleary 1999-00 Hamilton Bulldogs: 58, 22-52-74 (1.28)
  3. Steven Rice 1991-92 Cape Breton Oilers: 45, 32-20-52 (1.16)
  4. Tyler Benson 2018-19 Bakersfield Condors: 61, 14-47-61 (1.00)
  5. Mike Toal 1979-80 Houston Apollos: 76, 31-45-76 (1.00)

All but one in the group had an NHL career, Toal arriving at a time when the Oilers were producing two HHOF forwards a year (incredible). I know the plan is to have Benson stay in the AHL next season, but imo you can project him, along with Cooper Marody and Caleb Jones, as NHL-ready.

Condors clinched a playoff spot last night, the first time since becoming Edmonton’s AHL affiliate in 2015. Josh Currie leads the franchise in all major categories (skaters) and will no doubt be back in California for the playoffs.

ETA

We’ll talk about this as the spring yields to summer, but the estimated time of arrival on some prospects has changed in recent months. Dmitri Samorukov appears to have shortened his NHL timeline, but must of course continue to develop. Kailer Yamamoto? Going the wrong way.

  • Fall 2019: Caleb Jones, Cooper Marody, Tyler Benson, Joel Persson, Joe Gambardella, William Lagesson.
  • Winter 2019: Evan Bouchard
  • Fall 2020: Ethan Bear, Kailer Yamamoto, Dmitri Samorukov

The rest of the matriculating group will let us know when they’re ready to project, some of these junior forwards have to make a major leap to the AHL in the next 12 months.

JUJHAR KHAIRA STATUS

Matty has JJ Khaira likely in tonight.

John Marino’s Harvard team lost yesterday at the NCAA Men’s Hockey Championships, meaning his season is over. Marino can return to Harvard for his senior year, sign with Edmonton, or notify the team he’ll be turning pro as a free agent ala Matt Benning with the Boston Bruins (and Justin Schultz before him). If that occurs, expect the Oilers to quickly trade Marino in a “Tobias Rieder for Kale Kessy” calibre exchange. Marino is quality.

    I don’t know about the rest of you but I’m excited for the Condors strech run and for them to get one of Bouchard or Samorukov added to the roster as Guelph plays London in the second round.

    Of course, watching that 2nd round series is going to be awesome.

    Wait a second, shit, I’m out of the country from the 6th to the 20th – I’m going to miss most of it – damn!

    Japanoids

    texmex:
    Eliminated from the playoffs on March 30th.

    PROGRESS!!!!

    If this was Mar 30, 2017, and Hall and Barzal are Oilers property, no Rheihnart, Lucic…. I would be pretty happy. No Larssson but something would have been done for bonafide right D if they are in playoffs on Mar 30. Ahhh hindsight.

  3. OriginalPouzar says:

    OriginalPouzar: He is a tough SOB and hits like a truck – willing to drop them too.He actually has way more skill than I anticipated – maybe that was a function of getting to play with a bit of skill.

    Esposito ties the game up at 1 late in the 2nd period – Hebig with the primary assist.

  4. StixMalone says:

    Kinger_Oil.redux,

    And the nice smell of the smoke makes neighbors look and drool over the fence …

  5. texmex says:

    jake70,

    Yup. Sadly, playoffs are still another 2 to 3 years away 🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯

    BornInAGretzkyJersey,

    Bigger the egg the better for sure but they weigh a ton lol. I have owned Kamado style cookers since the eighties and the family loves the flavour. Low and slow and set and forget is really nice too. Loads of recipes on Yourube as well….

    – i actually disagree. Unless you are always cooking for 10+ people consistently,or it’s your 3rd cooker, or you always cook huge slabs of animal: then it’s ideal: you can’t put on a few steaks on the XL ones, the loss of heat is massive when you lift it up: its uses a huge amount of charcol, temperature control more difficult as is the time to get it going…

    – I’d never recommend to someone whose buying a first Kamodo style cooker to go big

  7. OmJo says:

    Ovi scored twice. Kucherov also scored.

    This game might put a dent in everything…

  8. StixMalone says:

    Watch them sign Stolarz to a multi year deal…..

  9. Scungilli Slushy says:

    Stolarz is either really nervous or really sunburned

    Who missed the lane on that goal?

  10. leadfarmer says:

    jake70,

    They’ve been eliminated Sept 1. Teams with 3 top 6 forwards don’t make the playoffs

  11. docweb says:

    Might be time for the old 50/50 chant at Roger’s so the paying customers can hit the exits

  12. Admiral Ackbar says:

    Why am I still watching this…..?

    Yeah you’re right I’m just so used to having one so long I forgot about the learning curve!

  14. Scungilli Slushy says:

    Just noticed Lucic ‘s hipster beard. Looks more gentle

  15. Scungilli Slushy says:

    Whoever signed on with Koski’s contract should be let go

  16. jake70 says:

    McDavid line a combined -7 ouch.

  17. Pescador says:

    Spit the bit on Thursday
    No show tonight
    In Vegas on Monday (yikes)
    San Jose Thursday
    Calgary next Tabernac
    0-5 by next Sat?

  18. Drew says:

    OriginalPouzar: Nah, no jackass, just a bit fiesty – at least your “punchiness” isn’t predicated in a personal vendetta….

    Work has also been bonkers for me – moreso than its been in years.Of course, timing is awful as I’m right in the trenches on a very complicated and fairly high profile MBO/Go Private financing (acting for the 10 bank lending syndicate) and, its going to close right when I’m in Asia) – not sure how I’m going to figure this one out – the 15 hour time change is not conducive to calls, etc.

    Just putting it out there – but with the Oilers being so sh!ty i’ve gotten into Private Equity and am funding a number of tech start ups. Are you using any legal tech for your deals?

    Helps smooth portions of transactions especially if parties are remote.

  19. OmJo says:

    Give Reider some McDavid minutes!

  20. BONE207 says:

    Hi Gang…

    Koski this, Tabernacle that…

    I see fish recipes…telltale signs.

    So remind me, on a beef roast. Is it sear first then bake or bake then sear?
    Thanks in advance.

  21. leadfarmer says:

    Scungilli Slushy,

    Yet the Flames won the conference with worse goaltending

  22. kralc says:

    Never before in the history of the nhl has a team missed the playoffs 13 out of 14 years. This time next year the oil will set this dubious record.

  23. BornInAGretzkyJersey says:

    Drew,

    Awesome, love the vote(s) of confidence!

    Kinger_Oil.redux: BornInAGretzkyJersey,

    – I’ve a huge BGE afficionada.Done correctly, some meat and game on the Egg compete with the best restuarants in the world that I’ve had the chance to eat at.

    – I have the large egg (the XL too big, too much prep) at the cottage, set up beside my propane BBQ, I’m like a pig in shit out there concocting things

    – Do your research, get a relationship with a Butcher (I’ve got a killer on on Bayview and one in St-Lawrence Market)

    Nice. As previously mentioned, we raise pork (and other meat) so having one big enough for a suckling pig would be ideal. We host events with clients and restaurants at the farm so it would be a great write off to showcase our product. But point well taken about not getting one bigger than necessary… bigger ≠ better in all cases.

    The missus used to be GM at the Healthy Butcher in Forest Heights, so she’s pretty specific about our working relationship with local butchers. It’s a process, since we’re producers AND consumers. She recommends the HB at Queen and Bathurst as peers to the shops you mentioned.

    At this point the only thing to cheer for are points and goals for Drai,McDavid and wait for it Reider!!!!

  25. jake70 says:

    Prediction: Reider gets 1PP time before season ends, in particular the last home game vs SJ…..he scores, roof lifts at Rogers Place.

  26. StixMalone says:

    Oh and kick Calgary’s ass before the playoffs

  27. Jethro Tull says:

    Just tuned in……and out. Woof.

    Back to fire pit, beer and cribbage. Get off my lawn.

  28. Gerta Rauss says:

    StixMalone: At this point the only thing to cheer for are points and goals for Drai,McDavid and wait for it Reider!!!!

    I’d like to see Nuge get 30

  29. StixMalone says:

    Gerta Rauss,

    Sweet baby Nuge yes for sure

  30. OriginalPouzar says:

    Marody ties it up – Benson with an apple – both extend their streaks to 10 games.

    Condors give the lead right back though. Down 3-2 with about 10 to go.

  31. BornInAGretzkyJersey says:

    BONE207,

    If it’s a dry roast sear first so you retain the juices, and if it’s a pot roast sear last because cooking in a moist environment will ruin the caramelization/crust.

    The large egg for me works great. I have a nat gas Weber and a vertical smoker as well. i find that the nat gas is great to finish some items and I use the BGE to really go crazy. ive done pork belly, prime rib, brisket etc. I never get really good results on birds with just the BGE though.

    i use a range of fuels and woods for flavor, is great fun.

    I’ve gotten in so deep that i take classes at the local culinary school for additional learning, once your in there is a real BBQ sub culture.

    Thanks Katz, your sh!tty team has really opened up the world for me.

  33. OriginalPouzar says:

    Helps smooth portions of transactions especially if parties are remote.

    The firm does have a number of the legal tech programs – docu-sign, closing folders, etc.

    They aren’t appropriate for the deals I work on – they are in the hundreds of millions of dollars (and sometimes billions)

  34. StixMalone says:

    Can’t wait to hear post game.
    We didn’t show up we weren’t prepared, we were off tonight, hard to play a team worse than us, they were a better team , we aren’t hungry enough, we couldn’t control flow, we were out worked blah blah blah blah same as it always is when we just suck …….
    And then Gagner scores as I write this lol

  35. Gerta Rauss says:

    Gagner’s had a few good looks tonight

    5th goal as an Oiler

  36. OmJo says:

    Gagner should donate that goal to Reider.

    Also, did anybody else hear somebody yell “we’re still in this!”?

  37. Gerta Rauss says:

    OmJo: Also, did anybody else hear somebody yell “we’re still in this!”?

    That was me

  38. Ribs says:

    That was the most lacklustre glove tap flyby after a goal I have ever seen, lol.

  39. flyfish1168 says:

    The way the game is going you would think it is the Oilers that played last evening and a man short for tonight’s game.

  40. texmex says:

    Gerta Rauss,

    500th career point for looch

    SELL SELL SELL SELL!!!

  41. Drew says:

    OriginalPouzar: The firm does have a number of the legal tech programs – docu-sign, closing folders, etc.

    Not a biggie,

    Used to do M&A in the energy sector, as a rookie they gave me the little deals. Up to 500M. lol

  42. OmJo says:

    Stolarz with some old school saves right there.

  43. OmJo says:

    Gerta Rauss: That was me

    Wait really? Or are you just messing?

  44. Gerta Rauss says:

    texmex:

    500th career point for looch

    We might be able to get a 7th rd pick for him

    Thanks man. Good to know. Makes sense too.
    I was thinking about the oven & a pot but then I thought about doing it in a bbq. I know it was discussed here some time ago but I forgot the details.

    Now back to our regularly scheduled programming…

  46. Gerta Rauss says:

    OmJo: Wait really? Or are you just messing?

    LoL….sucker

  47. Ben says:

    Had a choice to make early, stick with True Detective, or find a HNIC stream. I have to say: season 3 is a massive improvement over season 2.

  48. flyfish1168 says:

    Gerta Rauss:
    Gagner’s had a few good looks tonight

    5th goal as an Oiler

    Strome 15 for the NYR since the trade

  49. Drew says:

    Ben:

    Season 2 lost me, will tune in for 3 now.

  50. OmJo says:

    Gerta Rauss: LoL….sucker

    Bah!

    flyfish1168: Strome 15 for the NYR since the trade

    Strome with zero Lucic minutes since the trade.

  51. Drew says:

    flyfish1168: Strome 15 for the NYR since the trade

    i liked Strome and thought his trade was a stupid stupid deal, but as Chia is a pro i figured he must really know something i couldn’t see???

  52. oilersfan says:

    Did the oilers play that bad or did Koskinen just stink out the joint

  53. leadfarmer says:

    Drew: Season 2 lost me, will tune in for 3 now.

    Yeah after it took some convincing to give it a try and gave up after 3 episodes. It’s like JJ abrams doing Star Wars. Tried too hard to be like original

  54. oilersfan says:

    I texted stauffer’s show 20 times that the problem with strome and Jesse was that they were tied to lucic.

    He is the gift that keeps on giving

  55. OmJo says:

    OmJo: Bah!

    Strome with zero Lucic minutes since the trade.

    To clarify, not saying Spooner for Strome was a good trade. Or a decent trade.

    Just highlighting what seems like the Lucic Effect.

  56. Drew says:

    oilersfan:
    Did the oilers play that bad or did Koskinen just stink out the joint

    Not that I am watching but sounds like both.

  57. OmJo says:

    Drew: i liked Strome and thought his trade was a stupid stupid deal, but as Chia is a pro i figured he must really know something i couldn’t see???

    He saw Spooner had a few Bruins seasons on his HockeyDB profile.

  58. Ribs says:

    flyfish1168: Strome 15 for the NYR since the trade

    PTS/G Strome = 0.41
    PTS/G Gagner = 0.41

    Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!

  59. Gerta Rauss says:

    Well that performance emitted a strong odour

    On to Vegas

  60. Pretendergast says:

    7 straight games with 1 powerplay

  61. Gerta Rauss says:

    oilersfan:
    Did the oilers play that bad or did Koskinen just stink out the joint

    I thought the first 10 minutes were scratchy for both teams, then the Oilers pushed for about 5 min and looked good, then Perry scored late in the first(went off Koskinen’s glove)…and then the 2nd period happened

  62. Ribs says:

    And then…

    PTS/G Spooner = 0.17

    Ouch.

  63. OmJo says:

    Tobias Rieder spiked the water in Edmonton…

  64. Drew says:

    Ribs: PTS/G Strome = 0.41
    PTS/G Gagner = 0.41

    Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!

    PTS/G Spooner = 0.18

    Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!

    Not sure what this means except Chia is a chowder head

  65. BONE207 says:

    Pescador:
    Spit the bit on Thursday
    No show tonight
    In Vegas on Monday (yikes)
    San Jose Thursday
    Calgary next Tabernac
    0-5 by next Sat?

    Drive for 5….as in the 5th pick in the draft.
    The Plan is finally being realized

  66. leadfarmer says:

    OriginalPouzar,

    Funny thing about Koskinen is he actually has been going into the butterfly position a lot later than he did during his “hot” streak when I was joking that they push him into the crease after intermission on his knees

  67. leadfarmer says:

    Just realized that Gagner played in the USHL in Sewer city before spending his draft year in London. Wonder what’s the back story on that

  68. Glovjuice says:

    BornInAGretzkyJersey:
    BONE207,

    Pot roast sear both.

    the frustrating thing with Koskinansna (TALL) is the huge variability in his performance either good or completely sh!t.

    they should probably judge TALL in warm ups and then pull or play him

  70. Gerta Rauss says:

    Fun overtime in Vancouver

    That Quinn Hughes kid looks like a keeper

  71. OriginalPouzar says:

    Drew: Not a biggie,

    Used to do M&A in the energy sector, as a rookie they gave me the little deals. Up to 500M. lol

    We do have lawyers in the firm that play in that snack-bracket and, yes, the firm is pushing innovation, etc. big time for the files where its appropriate.

  72. OriginalPouzar says:

    oilersfan:
    Did the oilers play that bad or did Koskinen just stink out the joint

    They were the better team, significantly, until the first weak goal changed the game completely. After the 2nd weak goal they essentially called it a night.

  73. Gerta Rauss says:

    14 shooters and no goals in VAN

    on to round 8

    *edit-Granlund wins it for VAN

  74. Oil2Oilers says:

    Gerta Rauss:
    Fun overtime in Vancouver

    That Quinn Hughes kid looks like a keeper

    How have the Dys traded away two franchise goalies, had the pisscutters pisscutters age and retire with Jim Benning at the fucking helm and have a rebuild further a long a promising path than the Oilers?

    Before you reflectively answer Chiarelli, Chia was hired to get rid of soft talent that did not kiss the ring, lock up Lucic and bring in heavy hockey. He was a symptom not the cause.

  75. BONE207 says:

    Gerta Rauss:
    14 shooters and no goals in VAN

    on to round 8

    Bah…any team wearing blue can beat Dallas

  76. Scungilli Slushy says:

    Oil2Oilers: He was a symptom not the cause.

    Nail on head.

    The Dys are a crappy team still.

    They just don’t make awful decisions every time they make one. Like most teams.

  77. Gerta Rauss says:

    Oil2Oilers,
    Chiarelli
    Peter Ch

    I got nothing

  78. Pescador says:

    BONE207: Thanks man. Good to know. Makes sense too.
    I was thinking about the oven & a pot but then I thought about doing it in a bbq. I know it was discussed here some time ago but I forgot the details.

    Now back to our regularly scheduled programming…

    Who cooks a pot roast 1045 at night?
    A man, that’s who
    And what a Man!!

  79. OmJo says:

    The Edmonton Oilers are still a team in the National Hockey League.

  80. BONE207 says:

    Gerta Rauss:
    Oil2Oilers,

    ChiarrelliPeter Ch

    I got nothing

    Correction…
    We got nothing!!!

    No hope…no playoffs…no joy in pothole-ville

  81. Glovjuice says:

    OmJo:
    Tobias Rieder spiked the water in Edmonton…

    THIS is plausible. Sort of on the creation vs. Big Bang therories being equally absurd level.

  82. Drew says:

    Glovjuice: Ok Drew. I need to do this. Ready. I apologize……..You are dumb.

    Coming from you that means so much

  83. Scungilli Slushy says:

    I wonder if Katz’ due diligence is reading repeatedly in MSM Burgers has a 750 person list that he pared down to 200, but nobody will talk to him when playoffs are on (and Burgesr knows it).

    And if Burgers’ real time is spent calling the IIHF and hoping there’s an in before it’s too late.

  84. BornInAGretzkyJersey says:

    Ben,

    That’s good to hear. Season one was incredible. However, we didn’t make it past episode three of the second season. We’ve been watching The Americans lately, which is an impressive drama. When we’re done it might be worthwhile to circle back to the latest season of True Detective.

    Drew,

    – You have the triple play – egg gas and smoker. Do you spend a lot of time out there? I keep thinking I’d enjoy the smoker as it’s more set it forget it then transfer it to either grill to finish it off: grill marks torque it sauce it up etc.

    P.S. Andy I laughed when I read about your electric grill – do you drink 0% beer and serve decaf when you cook off that. Doesn’t it feel weird?!

    A man, that’s who
    And what a Man!!

    I have a dream. To free those succulent juices that have been captive for so long. It came as a joyous dawning of realization that we are free of Oilers playoff chains. I have a dream that alcohol will shorten the already shorter blackness that we have endured on tabernac Saturday. Now is the time to get on with living & ring the bells of freedom from the Disorganization which consumes our collective souls. We have survived the cold, harsh winter which gave us but a few lasting memories of hockey glory. Captive in our homes & our minds were the ideals of culinary artists the world over. Throw down your chains & raise your bbq lids & set forth to be righteous for a glorious season of summer sunsets.

    Kinger_Oil.redux,

    I thought a big plus of the BGE was it’s ability to function as a smoker? Or is this a case of a general tool that does well all around, but is outdone by specialty tools for specific jobs?

    Just saw a recent post that i feel was not needed and hope will be deleted by the poster.

    Those three words directly in a conversation to another human being in my experience can be deeply hurtful even in jest.

    No human deserves those words.

    I cook outside until it hits -20C. the egg and gas work great together when i do multiple cuts. the smoker is great for jerky but i find it best to finish on the gas.

    Not sure about the last comment (if is toward me) I never drink decaf, and i do not drink beer. I have a rum room attached to my wine cellar and have about 125 different rums, and yes cooking is great fun when i go all sample in.

    Was weird, in my private equity role, i mentor PhD’s (physicist, engineers, and other tech experts) they are always very respectful and eager to have me provide guidance.

    Thinking i need to look back on my critics posting history, maybe there is more to this individual than what appears???

    the smoker really lays the smoke in, I find it is inefficient to finish the job though. The BGE flavors are softer and I like the finish for some meats. Is a higher moisture environment though, unless you have the heat wide open.

    I did a quick look, much obscenities, random nonsense (which I admit I do as well lol) and a little bit on music.

    I’m OK knowing I was helpful if they feel good about themselves for a brief moment.

    How do you know the poster is female, I assumed the name referenced them pleasuring themselves in their hand.

    I miss GMoney and Dellow etc.

    That’s solid info, thanks. Good to know.

    Good thing I wasn’t drinking anything when I read that. I’m still laughing as I am typing this.

    Share your sentiments on some of the great posters of the day, BTW.

    Condors lose to the Baracuda last night, 4-2 but Marody and Benson each extend their point streaks to 10 games.

    London/Guelph confirmed for round 2 – hopefully the sched comes out soon and at least one game is on SN this week before I leave next weekend – would love to watch these two powerhouses play (although so busy).

    Went to the game tonight and was in front of a row of Ducks fans who were apparently related to Sam Steele and got to celebrate all 5 Anaheim goals loudly. A friend texted them to say that they were shown on FOX sports. If I’d have known, I’d have facepalmed harder while they were jubilantly jumping around me.

    We were in the Oilers end for the second period and when the 2nd goal went in, I mentally implored Hitchcock to pull Koskinen while the team still had a chance. Sadly it took two more weak ones to end the suffering and put an end to the competition and Kosi’s night.

    With about 7 mins to go, our section got salty with one fan shouting “Don’t shoot the puck!” every time the Oilers came into the offensive zone. When the teams went 4 on 4 with 5 mins remaining, I yelled “Keep away for 2 mins!” while the other fan keep yelling “Don’t shoot, don’t shoot!”. After 90 seconds of cycling leading to nothing but a cleared puck, the entire arena erupted into boos while our section hooted and laughed along with the Anaheim fans at our amazing psychic abilities.

    The Anaheim fans were cool tho. We let them know about Benning’s loss of a few teeth resulting in his cage and they were totally confused about the “Let’s go Reider!” chants during the last half of the 3rd. Once I explained Nicholson’s foot in mouth comments, they too joined in the supportive Reider chants.

    I wish Nicholson could hold one more round of season ticket holder meetings so people could REALLY let him know how they feel.

    As a group, me and my friends agreed we wouldn’t buy a 4 pack of tickets next year. We all believe the secondary market will have prices below face value and we can pick up game day tickets at a discount whenever we want to drive up from Calgary. Small victories!

    This is a game of inches and goaltending.

    Leon scores on that breakaway and the building erupts and the team feeds off it as they do – that first line probably gets rolling.

    Leon doesn’t score, the goaltender lets in a weak one and the team is deflated, the building quiet and the momentum shifts. Oilers can’t get the momentum back, a few more weak goals and it turns out to be one of the worst nights of the year….

    “This is a game of depth and goaltending.”

    Fixed.

    I just saw the Carrick hit on McDavid, and am even more disappointed with the non-call *and* non-reaction from the team.

    “Non-intentional” my arse. He was looking right at Connor and stuck out his leg.

    Somebody should have tuned him in.

    Marody ties it up – Benson with an apple – both extend their streaks to 10 games.

    Condors give the lead right back though.Down 3-2 with about 10 to go.

    How did Starett play?

    I’m sure Lucic took care of it.

    BornInAGretzkyJersey: Do you have any experience with the Big Green Egg?

    No, sorry. I avoid grilling, generally, as the process loses much of the fat and thus the fat soluble vitamins.

  105. Rebillled says:

    We could use a goalie next year.

    By ‘could us’ i mean we are proper fucked again next year with this pair.

    We’ve had:

    1. Roloson for the playoffs in 06
    2. Talbot in 16.

    Everything else…

    NOT GOOD AT ALL.

    ENTER:

    3 YEARS OF KHL KOSKI? OUCH.
