Despite previous reports, the Islanders have signed Derrick Brassard

1.) 21 Aug 2019 23:33:12
is this credible this time?

2.) 22 Aug 2019 01:38:36
And I didn't hear it here 1st lol.

3.) 22 Aug 2019 03:31:29
Oilers don't need him anyway see how many penalties he took against calgary is the playoffs. Not the kind of player the oilers need



21 Aug 2019 17:36:26
Quick News on Puljujarvi

''Over a total of five tweets, Mitchell (Lowetide) effectively says he believes there's an offer on the table from a team like Carolina, Puljujarvi's agent knows it and he's trying to put pressure on to force the Oilers hand to accept the offer. If people in Edmonton hate Puljujarvi just enough not to want him back, perhaps the team will take a trade they don't like just to move the player out''

Wow. I understand that the Oilers screwed up his development, but this is just classless. Having your agent force a trade and what seems to get hate on purpose so he'd get traded is... unbelievable.

If he wants a top 6 role, the Oilers are a perfect fit. They need a bigger winger, and he'll probably play with RHN the entire season simply because there is nobody better. Basically the entire coaching staff is brand new except for Gulutzan.

1.) 21 Aug 2019 18:26:34
What was the excuse for him playing 4th line minutes last year? He wasn’t given a chance to succeed last year so I understand why he wants a change. He’s definitely handling it wrong though. Why not play in the NHL and wait to be traded. There’s no way him making a scene increases his trade value which will make it harder for him to get traded.

2.) 21 Aug 2019 18:55:59
Sum tip top asset management right thurr

At what point does mcdavid demand a trade out i give it two more seasons of no playoffs

wasting the career of the best player in the world smh.

3.) 21 Aug 2019 19:39:26
lol, now I know you have the intelligences of a 12 year old.

4.) 21 Aug 2019 19:48:07
I don’t think the Oilers really did anything that wrong with Puljujarvi.
A) they got tons of hate in the past by rushing prospects into the 2nd/ 1st line and not letting them develop properly.
B) Oilers wanted to ease him into the NHL. They wanted him to get used to the speed, skill and size of other NHL players. That’s why he was put on the 3rd/ 4th line in the beginning.
C) Throughout the year the Oilers wanted to send Puljujarvi down to the AHL but his agent and him wanted for him to play in the NHL.
D) Oilers believe in putting out the best lineup every night, and Jesse Puljujarvi WAS put on the 2nd line and he could not keep up. If you can’t keep up on the second line, you get dropped to the third and so forth. That’s just how it works. Other players outplayed him.
E) Almost all of the scouts and experts expected him to be NHL ready by his rookie year, Oilers didn’t rush him.

To summarize
Oilers thought he was NHL ready in his rookie year just like everybody else, he showed he wasn’t, they wanted to send him down to the AHL but his agent wanted him in the NHL. In order to give the team the best chance to win, you have to put out the best lineup every night. That means Jesse being on the 3rd/ 4th line. he was given the chance to be on the 2nd line with RHN, he blew it.

5.) 21 Aug 2019 20:48:02
He was given a really short leash and I don’t know if he even played a full consecutive three periods in the top 6.
Most importantly, who cares what him or his agent said. If that’s even true. Instead of playing a 19 year old on the 4th line, you play him top minutes in the AHL. Developing 101.

6.) 22 Aug 2019 17:20:32
Stinks is just an Oilers troll who only comments Oilers hate. That’s a fact.

7.) 22 Aug 2019 19:34:53
I mean, yeah, everybody has a very short leash in Edmonton. We were trying to get into the playoffs last season and if we missed, most coaching staff and management knew they would be fired.

Quote from Edmonton Journal: ''fell apart when he was put on a line with Draisaitl for two games. He does not think the game that well. He doesn’t want the puck on his stick for very long, and he hasn’t learned to use his big body in the corners to hold checkers off… ''

Simply put, he wasn't good enough for the 2nd line. In order for the Oilers to be better, they couldn't have him on the 2nd line because he was a liability.

I was incorrect, he was put on the Draisaitl line instead of the RHN one.

8.) 23 Aug 2019 01:58:41
I agree he definitely wasn’t ready for top 6 minutes. He showed spurts of being a good player. I think he was decent in a third line role. It still doesn’t excuse the fact he was playing 8 minutes a night instead of 20 in the AHL. The best part about drafting a player playing in Europe is 3 years of AHL hockey until his entry level is up. But the Oil didn’t take advantage of that a wrecked his development in the process.



21 Aug 2019 00:51:21
Heard it here first folks.

Derrick Brassard to Oilers on a 1 year deal.
Georges Laraque reports via twitter.

1.) 21 Aug 2019 12:24:27
I’ve really wanted Brassard as our third line center for a while now. Worries about him wanting too much but maybe there’s no other interest for him for the price he wants. He’s got a perfect third line center fit and opportunity in Edm.

2.) 21 Aug 2019 15:35:12
I thought the oilers had a prospect that was ready to jump to 3rd line center? Cooper Marody?

3.) 21 Aug 2019 17:08:18
@Thunder Turkey

I think the new Oilers team is more patient with prospects. I believe Holland is known for giving his prospects lots of time to develop. He can also play wing so we'll see him in the NHL this year for sure.

4.) 21 Aug 2019 17:34:17
Fair enough Barrie. I thought i remember reading a few months ago that he was the projected 3C and the oliers were set down the middle and looking for wingers. Better not to rush him and maybe get more playing time in the AHL compared to the numbers he would be getting on the 3rd line.

5.) 21 Aug 2019 19:07:41
I’ve said he’d be a good fit on the oilers before then someone said he wanted 4 million from the oilers but he’ll probably sign on the Islanders.



13 Aug 2019 01:30:10
Edmonton Oilers:

- Lawson Crouse

Arizona Coyotes:

- Olivier Rodrigue

- 2020 4th round pick

Arizona's goalie prospect pool is fairly weak, and they acquire the most highly touted goalie in the 2018 NHL Draft.

Oilers gain a young, physical forward that is signed on a cheap contract to take Lucic's role on the team.

Arizona has the depth to lose Crouse as he is on their fourth line anyways. Oilers have the goalie depth to trade Rodrigue.

Arizona loses an NHL player with a low ceiling, but gain a younger player that needs patience but has a higher ceiling.

1.) 13 Aug 2019 16:13:37
I think Crouse could be had for less. Rodrigue is the Oils best goalie prospect, he’ll more than likely make Canada’s world junior team.

2.) 13 Aug 2019 17:39:29
His sophomore year in the QMJHL has been a bit disappointing as he even lost the starting job in the QMJHL playoffs.
He also stands at just 159lbs.
He is a B- goalie prospect.

3.) 13 Aug 2019 18:32:18
Ohh really? I read he has more potential than Skinner and Wells.

4.) 13 Aug 2019 19:03:53
Yeah. That draft was pretty weak for goalies.
Best one so far (extremely early) looks to be Lukas Dostal.
Played 10 games with men this year in the top Finnish league and posted impressive numbers. (1.80GAA .922 save %) .

Alexis Gravel is second.



11 Aug 2019 05:31:30
New York Islanders:

- TJ Brodie (RD)

Calgary Flames:

- Michael Dal Colle (LW)

- 2021 3rd conditional*


Makes sense for both teams. The Islanders are especially weak on the right side and even though Brodie is left handed, he has been playing on the right side for years.

Calgary has pretty weak LW scoring depth and Dal Colle gets a fresh start.

Eric Francis said that he was told that the Flames have tried shopping Brodie and the return wasn't there, so perhaps they will have to settle for this.

*If Brodie plays plays at least one full season for the Islanders or scores more than 40 points the 3rd turns into a 2nd.

Calgary gets the cap space to sign Tkachuk.

1.) 11 Aug 2019 09:55:33
Need brodie more and i'd say he's worth more than that package.

2.) 11 Aug 2019 16:00:37
@Sean. I mean, you can think he’s worth more all you want, but if the actual GM says the value wasn’t there, then obviously he isn’t viewed that favorably around the league.

3.) 12 Aug 2019 01:43:35
CGY's LW depth is just fine Gaudreu, Tkachuk, Mangiapane and Lucic. Plus Dube about ready to make there's no room for a guy like Dal Colle.

4.) 11 Aug 2019 22:07:30
Yeah, I guess you’re right Sean but there are multiple credible sources that say that there was a very little return available for Brodie.
This fills a need for both teams.

5.) 12 Aug 2019 13:52:28
Ty, the comment right above you explains that lw is not a need for Calgary. SC named 4 lw, plus have like 8 or 9 centers that could play lw if need be.

6.) 13 Aug 2019 02:58:15
Brodie will bring a better return at the deadline. Otherwise they keep him for the playoffs themselves.

Best and worst goalie tandem in the NHL right now?

1.) 10 Nov 2019 12:32:12
Worst LA best is Tampa but they aren’t playing good so I’ll go with The predators.

2.) 10 Nov 2019 16:08:19
Koskinen and Smith are the only tandem both in the top 10 in GAA and save% right now.
Demko and Markstrom are really good.
Buffalos’ tandem was getting high praise early in the season.
Varlamov and Greiss are great right now together.
Bishop and Khubodin seem solid.

I’m a big fan of both Rask and Halak they are solid in stats.

3.) 10 Nov 2019 16:39:25
out of the 4 TB and NASH goalies I think Rinne is the only one in the top 20 for one of GAA and Save %. Those tandems aren’t playing so great individually right now VB.

4.) 10 Nov 2019 18:14:54
In a best of seven series those are the fandoms I take personally.

5.) 10 Nov 2019 19:26:45
Lol. That wasn’t even the question my friend.
“Right now” doesn’t mean your personal favourite for a playoff series. You bring as much as Leafs17 to a conversation, which is cr@p all. Lol.

6.) 10 Nov 2019 21:50:59
Columbus has a pretty weak tandem, no? Quick and Campbell definitely not the weakest in the league.

7.) 11 Nov 2019 05:23:35
VB are you happy with Torontos tandem? Anderson isn’t in the top 20 for either the big two goalie stats and backup Hutch has 0 wins, I think. ?

8.) 11 Nov 2019 14:33:18
Yeah I really like Andersson but Hutchison is garbage.

9.) 11 Nov 2019 20:13:50
But is hutch worst then quick vbb? .

10.) 11 Nov 2019 21:15:49
Anderson’s number look like crap, but just imagine how bad the leafs would be without Anderson. leafs defence at this point in the season are not helping Anderson. The team for that matter isn’t helping. Point is Anderson is playing much better than his stats show. Hutch has shown bits and pieces of decent goaltending but the bad has far outweighed the good.

11.) 12 Nov 2019 15:14:51
Back to the post. Hate to say it but I would take the Boston tandem as best in the league at this time.

12.) 12 Nov 2019 17:52:22
Numbers wise, Koskinen and Smith are both in the top ten in GAA and Save%. 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️ I know some of you still don’t believe it.
NYI has Greiss leading both GAA and save% with Varlamov 10th in both.

13.) 13 Nov 2019 12:58:07
Any tandem with Carey Price. so . Him and Kinkaid this season.

14.) 13 Nov 2019 16:39:01
Would you still think that if it was, say, Price and Francouz, Sosa? 🤪.

15.) 13 Nov 2019 18:52:41
Price and a donkey would still be the best tandem. .

16.) 13 Nov 2019 18:53:44
K, maybe I'm being a lil biased lol,

17.) 13 Nov 2019 21:20:13
Francouz is the backup in Colorado Sosa. I was buggin ya from the other convo down a post 🍻🍻.

18.) 14 Nov 2019 06:46:29
Lol. well played Yupp.



13 Sep 2019 14:23:14
Will we ever see hockey players do the same as NFL players and hold out for contracts when they are already signed?

Obviously the rules are different, but let's say if a player is on a 4x4 deal and scores 90 points in his season, should he hold out?

1.) 13 Sep 2019 15:38:08
That’s a two-way street.



10 Sep 2019 01:22:34
This is what Devils GM Ray Shero said on draft bust Pavel Zacha's current contract situation:

"I don't give a f**k if he signs with the KHL or f**king Brampton. I don't have a **** where. We hold his rights"


1.) 10 Sep 2019 14:42:01
So if Taylor hall decides not to sign there cause he doesn't agree with the attitude of the GM is he still a legend?



06 Sep 2019 02:56:01
Will Kailer Yamamoto make the Oilers? If yes, how many points will he score? If no, is PPG numbers reasonable to expect from him in the AHL?

1.) 06 Sep 2019 12:55:05
I don’t think he will, at least not at the start. Ken Holland usually practices patience with his young players. So he will let them develop and possibly play them in the AHL too much.

Like any player during a season, there will be ups and downs. So he could be PPG for a time in the AHL. I don’t think it will last all season long. Unless the team as a whole performs well.

2.) 08 Sep 2019 04:19:47
mcmarcus and islandjet might be the 2 dumbest, least knowledgeable homers on this page. the jets suck. their window has closed. laine hates winnipeg and is gone as soon as he can be.

youd think the armpit of canada would appeal to finns, but alas, the women are too ugly.

3.) 08 Sep 2019 04:20:44
trouba is worth the moon, youll all see. crickets.



04 Sep 2019 22:38:21
Keller signed to a deal with around 7M AAV.
Crazy part is, most people are commenting that it's an over payment.

Personally, I think It's a steal. Keller has huge potential. With the way that the salaries are increasing, it's going to be a huge steal.

1.) 04 Sep 2019 23:22:16
Definitely a steal and you’re very ignorant if you think otherwise.

2.) 04 Sep 2019 23:22:44
I think it has the potential to be a steal too but it's by no means a given. He had 45 points last year he's going to have to be a lot better then that.

3.) 05 Sep 2019 02:25:00
You. Forgot to mention it’s 8 years. That’s the biggest part of this deal. They lock him up to 8 years like most have been doing with their “superstars” Dubas giving Mathews his 5 year deal messed a lot of stuff up going forward for RFAs. Now, latest I heard Marner might be closest to a 3 year deal starting at $9.5M and going up a lot each year. Cr@ps getting a bit crazy now. So good on AZ for locking their star winger up for 8 years. Lots will happen in the next 8 years.
And I got a little inside info from David Clarksons uncle today, my good friend is business partners with him, I golfed with him today and met him at an Oilers game last season. All I’ll say about that, no need to share more. Lol.

4.) 05 Sep 2019 14:25:19
Lol Yupp please help me wrap my head around how "most" have been locking up their superstars for 8 years coming off ELC's in the salary cap era.

5.) 05 Sep 2019 14:31:58
Ah yes. David Clarkson's uncle. There's an insider if I've ever heard of one.

I found a pizza crust that Sebastian Aho's cousin's housemate's dogsitter dropped on the floor at Papa John's. Can't share with you what it told me though. It's super secret.

6.) 05 Sep 2019 18:12:58
Was it good pizza crust at least?! Hope so man.
Clarkson is a Leaf again after all. Heard some funny Dubas stories.

7.) 05 Sep 2019 21:59:28
let's hear em yup! I believe ya.

8.) 08 Sep 2019 20:55:45
I noticed the troll avoided the explanation unsportsmanlike asked for and instead comes back with a comment about pizza. The worlds most interesting man worked in Brock Lesnar’s backyard, shook Marleau’s hand and now some inside scoop from Clarkson’s uncle, bahah! We all envy you. However, I actually work with Kassian’s uncle for the past 20 years now. Take this as you will but I was told no playoffs this year, no McDavid next year. Sorry it’s not a funny story like your Dubas stories that you can’t share in case Clarkson’s uncle visits this site, lol.

No from Oilers 100%. Oilers fans hate him, as we picked him in the first round and then he refused to sign with us. As a new GM Ken Holland needs to win the fans over. Gagner (even though he’s in the AHL) is a fan favourite.
