    They're still a young team and I take it as a good sign that they have had a chance to win basically every game this year except that one against SJ. The next step is to find ways to hold on/steal those needed points, then we can start taking about playoff hopes.
    Thing that worries me more than the points is that we're getting outshot almost every game. If it weren't for Doobie really stepping up this year things would be ugly right now.

    Very true. But if it wasn't for Kiprusoff, I think most people would agree that Calgary would have been in the basement with the Oilers. Now we have a good goalie and can keep us in games. It's all we can ask for I think.

    With 11 points in 10 games I'm fairly happy. Sure we could have had more, could have less. But if we keep that level up we should make playoffs or at least be very close.

    Yeah, I would say that Edmonton "stole" a lot of those OT points. They really were outplayed in a lot of games. Dubnyk played stellar in some and there was some timely scoring, but I really don't think the Oilers are playoff bound this year. I hope I'm wrong, but with a D like that and young forwards being inconsistent on the offense, I just don't see it this year.

    Definitely not playoff bound. They'll be close but they are like one injury on the blue line from completely collapse.

    Depends who it is - Smid, Petry, either Schultz, big yep.

    Whitney or Potter? Them injured might be an improvement

    Maybe... but when an injury to one of those guys means that Peckham or Teubert is getting a call-up I don't know.

    I don't know that it's that interesting. He's done it before, at least part-time as a better faceoff option than a lot of what the Oilers have.

    I would have expected them to move Hall to centre before Smyth.

    The problem there is that they aren't missing centermen in the top six so Hall would have to move down a line to move over. Smyth is a bottom six guy now so he can move over freely.

    Default Hall/Yakupov swapping lines

    Coach Krueger says he may try Yakupov-RNH-Eberle together against #CBJ along with some additional forward line shuffling

    How do you think this change will impact the Oil's top six? I'm specifically interested in how it impact Taylor Hall going from RNH-Eberle to Hemsky-Gagner.

    Not much I'd say but it's worth noting that the Hall-Gagner-Hemsky line is going to be asked to do more heavy lifting than the Yakupov-RNH-Eberle line will so maybe there will be a slight drop in points but I don't see anything noticeable happening here because the ice time is still going to be there in droves.

    So...

    Oil sit 20th in the league, 11th in the West.
    T-2nd last for regulation wins.
    26th in GF.
    27th in GF/G.
    16th in GA.
    11th in GA/G.
    Last in the league in 5v5 goal differential.
    8th in PP%.
    5th in PK%.
    24th in Shots per game.
    29th in Shots against per game.
    29th in FO%.

    What does this tell me?

    Without Dubnyk, we'd be worse the worst team in the league. He's the only reason our GA and GA/G aren't in the basement with our other stats.
    The only way we can score is on the PP.
    Our special teams are good but our 5v5 play is awful.
    We're in the league basement in GF, GF/G, 5v5 Scoring Differential, and shots/game despite having one of the most talented top-6 in the leuage.

    I just moved Hemsky for Derek Roy in my league. My reasoning was that Hemsky's value is probably at a high since he's playing w/ Yakupov and that hoping that would continue (or that Hemsky would remain healthy) would be dangerous.

    I figure that Edmonton is going to have to make some kind of move to take the next step, and that Hemsky was the the one most likely to be moved.

    Thoughts?
