    Much stronger effort all-around, and nice to see Skinner making some stops. Magic number is now 14 wins or bust.

    What an out-of-character great game from the Oilers. They clearly didn't have the desperation of the Kings but stuck with it defensively and kept things tame enough for Skinner to stand tall. Huge confidence booster for the squad to have Skinner pitch a shutout as well. I wish they played this type of game against a more explosive team because they've already proven they can beat the Kings who aren't an offensive powerhouse. Maybe they'll get that chance. Either way, very encouraging. The number is now 13 wins or bust.

    These pairings seemed to stabilize the back end a bit. Ceci is struggling a bit this series but hasn't been terrible. Just need the bottom 6 F to pop in a couple of goals.

    Being a fan of this team is like being on a roller coaster ride! You get some breathtaking highlights and some pants filling scary moments during the ride.

    Was a huge fan of Woodcroft, but how can you not really love what Knoblauch has done in his short time at the helm? Best PK and PP in the playoffs. Has to sit Skinner and Pickard comes in and is decent, that timeout call, bringing Perry and McLeod back in tonight and having them make a difference in a crucial game.

    Loving the way Janmark and Brown are working the PK.

    I couldn't agree more on all points.

    As for the roller coaster ride, I can't handle this! Living in Ontario (thank goodness the games in this round have started a bit earlier), I have a hard time falling asleep after watching these games. It's akin to the way I feel if I exercise at night...I'm way too ramped up after these games.

    I'm absolutely loving the way some of the role players are stepping up in this series offensively. It feels good to be tied knowing that McDavid hasn't had to carry the team by himself offensively. In fact, I'd go so far as to say that by his standards he's actually had a poor series so far. He's missed a few chances that he'd normally finish, and many of his rushes have looked forced, trying to beat 3 or 4 players all on his own (which I know works at times in the regular season but with hooks and grabs called less often in the playoffs, it isn't working right now). Draisaitl has also made quite a few bad turnovers in this series. I'm choosing to think positively and believe that McDavid and/or Draisaitl are going to step up in the next game or two.

    IMO, the biggest reason Dallas is causing so much trouble for Edmonton is that they have been extremely disciplined in the penalty department. It's on the power play in these playoffs where the team really shined in the first two rounds.

    So true. Honestly, for me a big part of it is also the feeling that I am going to be let down no matter what, so I sort of expect it now - but the team keeps performing. I really didn't think they would get this far in the playoffs this year. Knoblauch's coaching has been incredible in the playoffs this year like you said. It also helps that the team actually has depth options to swap in and out. I know it's in style to crap all over Holland but he seems to have done that part well.

    Just looking at the buyout calculator on capfriendly as far as Campbell goes.

    Bold is the CAP HIT it would cost them.

    2024-25 $5,400,000 $5,000,000 $0 $1,500,000 $1,500,000 $3,900,000 $1,100,000
    2025-26 $4,200,000 $5,000,000 $0 $1,500,000 $1,500,000 $2,700,000 $2,300,000
    2026-27 $3,900,000 $5,000,000 $0 $1,500,000 $1,500,000 $2,400,000 $2,600,000
    2027-28 $0 $0 $0 $1,500,000 $1,500,000 -$1,500,000 $1,500,000
    2028-29 $0 $0 $0 $1,500,000 $1,500,000 -$1,500,000 $1,500,000
    2029-30 $0 $0 $0 $1,500,000 $1,500,000 -$1,500,000 $1,500,000


    Do they do it?

    Other potential moves this off-season.

    Ceci has one year left at $3.25 and Kulak has two years left at $2.75M. One has to go to make room for Broberg's ice time. Desharnais needs a new deal so do they move out both Ceci and Kulak to give more ice time to Desharnais and Broberg?

    I'd love to see them re-sign Henrique. He was such a good fit there. Actually that entire 3rd line with Brown and Janmark all need new deals. Holloway is a RFA as well but he should be getting a fairly cheap bridge deal.

    Personally it wouldn't break my heart if they moved on from Ryan McLeod, who has one more year left at $2.1M. Other than his speed, he really doesn't offer much and is just too soft a player for me.

    Your cap percentage the Campbell buyout would cost:
    2024-25: 1.25% ($88m)
    2025-26: 2.50% ($92m)
    2026-27: 2.71% ($96m) Guessing roughly 4-5% increase
    2027-28: 1.50% ($100m) Guessing roughly 4-5% increase

    Honestly, buying out Campbell might be worth it considering his $1.5m cap penalty in years 4-6 likely mean little. But it really depends on what the Oilers are wanting to do with the extra cap.

    It would appear that Ken Holland's days with Edmonton are coming to an end. A lot of Oiler fans crap on Holland for some of his moves, and deservedly so, but he also made some really good ones too. He got this team to within 2 goals of winning the Stanley Cup. Sure, he had McDavid and Draisaitl when he arrived, but he had to build the pieces around them. He made the playoffs every year he was GM. He took over a team floundering and it took him all 5 of his years to finally do what many others couldn't and that was get them to the Stanley Cup finals. This team he built was good enough to win. I have zero issues with Ken Holland as the GM of the Oilers. I am probably more nervous about the next one coming in and what they end up doing rather than another year of Holland running the team.

    Hard to think there’s not a team that would take Campbell. Usually there’s a team out there for that.
