Fits the narrative that Oiler fans are still living in the 80’s

I'm Post 5000. Halfway point to (TBD) E=NG VIII. A tad slower volume than originally predicted, but I'm optimistic it will pick up. Carry On, much important work lies ahead. Let's hit that 10,000 posts goal!

Edmonton Oilers, as currently assembled are a pastiche of a few baubles, assorted wannabes and last-chancers. They literally are the dregs of the league and a cautionary tale about boastful predictions. Never has such opportunity has been squandered. They are a shameful example of a once-proud dynasty. There is absolutely nothing credible or remotely logical to back to their optimism moving forward. They are, without a doubt in hockey circles, doomed to mediocracy. There shall be no redemption and they will most assuredly wander in hockey purgatory for an epochal portion of time.

They are, quite frankly, beyond hope.

Reading HFOil is an absolute pleasure after last nights rookie beatdown. Two general trains of thought from Oil fans.

"That was embarrassing and it's a cause for concern to see our highly touted prospects barely even show up" or "Its a meaningless game and the rookies know they'll be playing at a higher level in a few weeks, they all have their camp invites, so they're saving themselves for main camp"

I have a different theory. I do think the Oil prospects didn't try to stand out and put forward half-efforts, because what's the reward for playing well? Playing for the Oilers. Barf. These kids aren't dumb, the best chance they have to develop as NHL'ers is underperform, try to go unnoticed and hope they leave the organization in a couple years.

Who puts a sports team flag on their work bulletin board, anyway? Maybe you could justify it during playoffs, but otherwise it's just kinda weird.

I think it is also pretty funny that there is a calendar showing Sept 2019, so you know it is a recent picture.

Confused about "NASA Notices". I assume it is not the NASA I know.

at least McCurdy had a rational take on Bouchard, seeing some warts ...

Quote:
#75 Evan Bouchard, 6. Had a few rough defensive moments in the first, allowing his man to sneak behind him for one chance, then getting walked by another. Later, he, Marody and Benson collectively lost both possession and position in their own zone to enable a down-low 2-on-1 that just missed. Lost his man again on a second period powerplay that resulted in a dangerous chance for a Calgary PKer. Later made a strong defensive stop of Luke Philp. For a man with supposedly “average” wheels I keep seeing rushes where he skates about 1% faster with the puck than his nearest opponent can without it, and he generally skates away from trouble rather than into it. Left one would-be checker in his exhaust with a quick turn up the boards and out. Scored Edmonton’s first goal when his point shot into traffic bounded into the cage off a defender. On the next, disjointed powerplay he made three consecutive slick defensive plays to put out possible fires, then fed Benson on a “play-action pass” late in the PP for a good look after first selling the shot from the point. There’s an element of deception to his game that will be a welcome element on Edmonton’s blue line whenever he makes the grade.

Oilers, Canadian and Orange, just the Trifecta of Evil right there.

You probably cant even burn it.

It was a game of prospects that dream of cracking the big club vs. the 2019-20 Oilers playoff potential


Everyone on the Flames is looking to push for a roster spot, and quite a few on the Oilers have not only made the team... but they're heralded as pieces that will "keep the Oilers challenging for a playoff spot in March"

So how's that working?
