So much talent. So little grit.

The Oilers are perfect trading partners with the Islanders.

Except for that whole lack of cap space thing.

They came out expecting to win. Hopefully they now realize they actually have to play to win.
- Wildschwein


No one expected that result. The Hawks do have a lot of PO experience on their team but The Oil should win that series. Hopefully everyone gets the message and gets to work.

Lee for Leon Draisaitl should do it.

Isles took Eberle off the Oilers hands so they owe us. Lee and Eberle better show something next game.

Not to worry the Pens will lose and get the #1 pick.

Trades are what our cap needs.

Well yeah, but neither the Oilers nor Islanders have much for cap space. It’d make things tricky.

Plus most Edmontonians are gun shy about trading with the Islanders. No idea why that might be...

Well it’s not going to be the Devils but the Rangers and Pens are trending in the right direction. Wacky situation.

I (and pretty much every Oiler fan) would take Eberle back in a red hot
second.

No more bedrooms for G man. I hear he's out to pasture and doing his best work in the stables.

All of Edmonton must cry every time Barzal and Beau come to town.

If by cry you mean burn Peter Chiarelli in effigy, then yes, yes they do.

Grif was already a bust. It's pretty pretty pretty pretty bad he made that trade.

Did we lose the game ?
Is there reason to disrupt what just won your first game of this series 2-1?
I think the Islanders dominated the game except for a couple push backs from The Cats in the Second.
If it weren’t for Bob the game could have easily have been 4-1.

- nyisles7


Just because the Isles did not lose the game does not mean you don't tweak things a little bit to try and strengthen things. Especially in a short series. Next your going to tell me that Boychuck should play Tuesday if he is healthy?

Lastly, from the physical side of the game, the team did not dominate. Neither did their Power play. There are areas for adjustment.

There won’t be any tweaks except maybe JB not playing and Greene will be in. The lines all played very well and there’s no need for changes imho.

How does tweaking your lines or putting Beau, JGP and Brassard on the same line .help or increase the physical side of the game and or the PP?

Damn, these quotes must be hard to read. Quote a guy, then ask him why he said things he never said.

Sounds like an alt thing if you ask me.
