OILERS AT NO. 100: CARTER SAVOIE

by Lowetide

The Oilers drafted undersized skill in the fourth round, with the team’s first selection on Day 2 of the 2020 draft. I had him at No. 56, this should be considered terrific value at this number.

A small, fleet skill winger delivered 99 points in 54 games with the Sherwood Park Crusaders of the AJHL. Red Line Report says “first-round talent level” but are also critical about performances in Top Prospects Game and World Jr A Challenge. Red Line compares him in style to Jason Zucker.

This would have been a solid pick at No. 76 overall, even better at No. 100.

OriginalPouzar:
Is Savoie really undersized.

Sure 5’10 is “short” for the league but he’s listed at 190 and I would suggest that’s the number that really matters, no?

From numbers only, he sounds like a unit…

Apparently he was kind of chubby a la Ethan Bear, the Thunderbird version. He is no longer that body type and his body composition has drastically changed due to a fervent commitment to nutrition and training during the offseason.

Hopefully this translates into more speed/quickness and more effort on his play away from the puck.

Now Jesse is coming back,bring back Hall as well…….what a great first two lines!

rickithebear

Jesse has a better evg rate (10 evg/65gm) than Matt Tkachuk (10 evg/72gm) in their 19 yr old NHL seasons.

What do they do the next yr?

Give 9 other Fwds more even minutes with Mcdavid.
Drai 888:04
Kassian 436:21
RNH 418:37
Chaisson 305:13
Rattie 247:31
Caggulia 144:21
Lucic 108:03
Yamamotto 86:22
Khaira 68:55
Jesse 67:30

The org told him to piss off with 4th line minutes.
Then org blamed PC and TM incompetence on him.

As an agent I would have pointed this out first.

Hope he gets a chance with Mcdavid this time.

Death By Misadventure: Off the board. Alright goodnight folks.

Not off the board in my books. One of the top scorers in MHL last yr, linemate of last yrs 7th rounder Denezhkin. Massive but terrific hands, shot, skill, dangours on pk. Only drawback is a bit below avg skating apparently, which as we’ve seen can be fixed ala Leon. Would’ve loved this pick if not for other left here like Miettinen, Pashin, but still really like this pick. Swing for the fences.

Eh Team:
Oilers doing well with their picks.Too bad they didn’t have more…

I do like how Holland/Tippett have given opportunities for young players though-Bear, Jones, Yamo this year have been big additions.Next year Bouchard, Lagesson, Benson and the return of JP would be a massive help.

It would be great to see the next wave of internally drafted and developed players join the fray “next season”
The return of JP is very good.
Now it would be great to get a solid 3C
This free agency season is manic.

Wow two years at 1.175 is great work from Holland. Nice grinding Kenny!

The second year is the coup.

Him and Caleb Jones making a combined $2M third year and next might allow us to add a quality UFA.

Markstrom or Hall. Oh please Kenny make it so.

Honestly, if I were him I would have just updated the “draft day 2” page instead of post new ones for every pick. (Unless it’s too slow or it causes complications)

No new post up yet. I hope LT is ok. He must be having one for Tyler Tullio. And then having another.

nelson88:
I usually watch rounds 2 – 7 and it goes lightening fast. can’t watch as work today but why is it taking so bloody long? bad enough the 1st round gets stretched out for 3.5 hours but this is terrible.

Teams appear to be taking all the time they can. Plus, because teams are not all at the same location, it takes longer to talk with other GMs about trades and such

DieHard

Stay with forwards please.

Death By Misadventure:
So now hoping for Connor McClennon? What’s the consensus?

Rory Kerins is still on the board

Doug McLachlan:
LA take Chromiak at 128.

Damn. Would have been sweet to pick him up at 135.

GordieHoweHatTrick

OK. My faith is being re-stored… a bit. Good thing Tyler is looking at LT’s list to get some of the forward skill that is still on the board…

Crazy Pedestrian

LA grabs Chromiak. Oh well. Ty Tullio is a great pick at that spot.

Todd Macallan

TULLIO YYYYYYEEEEESSSS! Just when I thought I couldn’t like a lick more than Savoie at 100.

Oilers get 2 second round talents in the 4th and 5th rounds. Tyler Wright, take a bow, this draft is a big win even if they packed up and went home now.

Doug McLachlan

LA take Chromiak at 128.

Another value pick from LTs list. Hard to complain about that. Still want Chromiak though.

Yup. Lucky the Red Wings are taking their sweet time to make their pick.

Welcome back Jesse! Here’s hoping he has his head on straight this time. It’s not often one gets a second chance…….Let’s go Pulli!

Ok sportsnet, this is getting ridiculous. That’s the third time they went to commercials before the oilers pick.
