GDB 4.0: LOOKING FOR MOMENTUM

Jason Gregor
October 10 2013 12:12PM

After a ferocious comeback led them to a shootout victory on Monday, the Oilers will be looking to carry that momentum into tonight's clash with the Montreal Canadiens. The Oilers have trailed by three goals heading into the 3rd period 285 times in franchise history, and Monday was only the 5th time they came back to win the game. Those types of comebacks are extremely rare, but the enthusiasm and confidence the Oilers gained from that game has been evident the past few days.

The players were more relaxed. This team is still quite young, especially their offensive leaders, and even though it was only eight periods of hockey, you could tell some of them were frustrated with their lack of production prior to the 3rd period explosion vs. the Devils.

Taylor Hall, Jordan Eberle and Nail Yakupov desperately want to lead this team offensively. They feel their primary job is to score goals, and you could see they were getting frustrated not doing it. They have high expectations, and since Monday's victory you could see the relief on two of their faces.

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins scored in his first game, so he wasn't feeling any frustration, but he's just as hungry to lead this team as the other three.

As they mature, they will realize that on nights where their offence is struggling they can still help the team by playing solid defensively. It is easy to say, but much harder to accept. Very few young offensive stars can accept that playing great defence is as important as scoring a goal. They were able to dominate at every other level, and most of their domination came offensively.

This isn't a knock or a criticism, just a fact in today's game. The best offensive players become some of the best two-way players if their teams want to win. Sidney Crosby, Jonathan Toews, Pavel Datsyuk, Henrik Zetterberg and Patrice Bergeron are excellent two-way players, and Nugent-Hopkins is constantly talking about wanting to emulate them.

Hall, Eberle and Yakupov are equally aware of it, but it will take time before they don't get frustrated when the offence dries up. Usually their slumps won't last very long, so it won't be a big issue, but even a two-game drought can frustrate young snipers.

Hall's third period goal was a huge relief, and even though Eberle didn't score a goal, he contributed with an assist and he too was more relaxed the past few days.

Yakupov loves scoring goals, and after scoring six goals in his final three games he was hoping to carry that momentum into this season. It hasn't happened, yet, and you can see the frustration in his game. It seems many in Oilersnation want to blame his linemates for his lack of production. That is a lame excuse, and not one that Yakupov is thinking about.

Elite players don't think that way. Yakupov can score regardless of who he plays with, and when I spoke to him yesterday he said he just needs to shoot more and react better to plays. He's played most of the season with Boyd Gordon, who has a point in every game, so the excuse of weak linemates is not only a cop out, but also inaccurate.

Yakupov needs to shoot more, but he also needs to work harder to get into better shooting lanes. It is only three games, and no one should be that concerned, but stop blaming his linemates. Gordon is playing the best offensive hockey of his career, yet he's an anchor for Yakupov? It doesn't jive.

Yakupov will start producing, and when he does it will likely coincide with him simply working harder in every aspect of his game.

LINEUP

Hall-RNH-Eberle
Perron-Arcobello-Hemsky
Smyth-Gordon-Yakupov
Gazdic-Acton-Brown

Ference-J. Schultz
Belov-Petry
Smid-N.Schultz

Dubnyk

I'm sure many will complain that Yakupov is playing with Smyth, but Eakins isn't afraid to juggle his lines, so I'm sure we will see Yakupov play with other duos as well. Eakins won't hesitate to switch up the lines if they aren't producing, but he stated yesterday he'd much rather keep his lines together, because that means they are playing well.

The Canadiens lost 3-2 in Calgary last night and didn't skate this morning, but Peter Budaj will get the start in goal for the Habs. Josh Gorges was injured and only played one shift in the third period last night, so he'll be a game time decision.

Galchenyuk-Eller-Gallagher
Pacioretty-Desharnais-Briere
Bourque-Plekanec-Gionta
Prust-Moen-White/Bournival

Gorges??-Subban
Markov-Diaz
Bouillon-Tinordi

Budaj 

QUICK HITS....

  • David Perron is another scorer who wants to be a main contributor. After a solid preseason, five goals, he too was pressing for his first as an Oiler. After he ripped one over Brodeur's right shoulder he admitted he felt a great sense of relief. It is nice to see a bunch of players who truly want to contribute and win. Once this team learns to play better away from the puck, I believe they will be a handful for opposing teams.
     
  • Last year many wrote how Eberle's shooting % was unsustainable, and he would clearly regress. It is interesting how none of those same people wrote similar stories about Yakupov. Yakupov had 17 goals on 81 shots for a sizzling 21 SH%. If Eberle's 18.9% wasn't going to be repeated, shouldn't those people expect Yakupov to regress as well?
     
  • Perception and human nature is a funny thing. It seems some have decided it is Eberle vs. Yakupov, instead of hoping that both have great success. I sense that some would rather see Yakupov succeed than Eberle, mainly because he was the #1 overall pick. After a 76-point season many stats guys wanted to show why Eberle couldn't maintain those numbers, yet after Yakupov's rookie campaign many automatically assumed he'd become a 35-goal man. Why was Eberle's season critiqued due to SH%, but Yakupov's used as a stepping stone to future success?
     
  • Lars Eller is off to a great start for the Habs. He has four goals and six points in three games, while Aex Galchenyuk has five assists. Eakins likes to go power on power so we could see the RNH line vs. Galchenyuk which should be exciting.
     
  • I loved Tomas Hertl's goal. It is extremely difficult to pull that off in a game, and outside of Adam Oates, it seemed most hockey fans appreciated it. I liked Hall's response when I asked him if he feels it was disrespectful. "I think it is more insulting if a team stops trying against you than if they run up the score or score a flashy goal," said Hall. 

THE ORACLE....

GAME DAY PREDICTION: The Oilers can't afford to go on the road with only one victory. They will play their best game of the early season and skate away with a 4-2 victory.

OBVIOUS GAME DAY PREDICTION: Gordon has had four three-game point streaks in his career, but he's never had points in four consecutive games. He'll set a career high tonight with an assist, and make everyone forget about the dreadful two seasons of the Belanger Triangle.

NOT-SO-OBVIOUS GAME DAY PREDICTION: Midway through the first period Alex Galchenyuk, the 3rd pick in the 2012 draft, will crush Yakupov, 1st pick in 2012, with an open ice hit. Yakupov is slow to get up, but on his next shift he rips a one-timer for his first goal of the season. Instead of a crazy celebration, he just stands still and raises his hands above his head with a big smile. After the game he thanks his former teammate for waking him from his early season slump.

Oilers need Ogie Ogilthorpe! wrote:

Similarities are striking... From Wikipedia:

"St. Louis earned a spot on the Calgary roster to begin the 1998–99 season and made his NHL debut on October 9, 1998, against the San Jose Sharks. He scored his first goal on October 20 against Dallas Stars' goaltender Roman Turek.[10] He began the season playing with Calgary's top forward, Theoren Fleury, but was quickly demoted to the fourth line, and often sat out of the lineup.[2] He appeared in only 13 games in Calgary, spending the majority of the season in Saint John where he led the AHL squad with 28 goals and 62 points.[10] He began the 1999–2000 season with Saint John, but earned a recall to Calgary after scoring 26 points in 17 games.[2] St. Louis completed his first full NHL season with 3 goals and 18 points in 56 games.[3] Pleased with his progress, general manager Al Coates picked up St. Louis' contract option for the 2000–01 season. However, the organization fired Coates and his staff that summer and the new management team was not interested in retaining his services. The Flames exposed St. Louis to the 2000 NHL Expansion Draft, but after he went unselected, the team bought out his contract and made him an unrestricted free agent.[2]"

Now, to save you the trouble, the next line in the article states that St. Louis had a few free agent offers. Still, it shows the importance of a legit opportunity. In Omark's case, has Omark had enough exposure for other GM's to know what they're passing on?

I get that there's a very strong case against him. The 'every team passed on him, at league minimum (or close?) salary is compelling, but probably not even the strongest anti-Omark argument.

All I'm saying, is that when I've seen Omark play, I thought he was already NHL calibre, with a lot of upside. You, the coaches and 30 GMs disagree with me. I just don't think he's had a fair shot.

I just question who you take out of the lineup to give Omark a shot.

Do you take out Perron? Smyth, who is a much better defensive player, although infinitely slower? Hemsky, Eberle, Yak? Joensuu that can skate, handle the puck AND bang along the boards?

Brown.. and play Omark on the 4th?

There is no room for him on this team, and if Omark is legitimately in your top 6, then your team is probably the Flames.... and even they didn't want him.

Habs broke the Oil cycle like a bully stealing their lunch money. Out coached and outplayed when it counted. Great hustle, but it wasn't combined with a well executed system.

The Habs gained the Oilers zone way too easily tonight. Still the turnovers. Nuge, Hall and Ebs were trying to do too much on their own. There was no cohesion in the offensive zone.

I'm seriously getting sick of watching my team lose.

Can we please for the love of . . . . almighty put someone on the PP who is a threat to use a slap shot - this soft wrister crap from Schulz jr is brutal. And every team knows they are looking for that back door cross ice from the half wall. C'mon coach earn your wage and get creative - Montreal PP made ours look foolish. And it cost another game. I love Ference on PP no hesitation just a hard low slap shot he almost scored twice again tonight.

And finally Yak you are so lost out there bumping into your own players, you are really out of sync - take a look at your former teammate on Habs - a threat every shift, back checks hard, etc i think you just earned yourself a seat up high to start the road trip.

Excellent point in your first para. As for yak, I think he needs to play 1-2 line for a few games to see if he can straighten things out on the fly. If that doesn't do the trick then maybe have him sit out a few.

Pretty tough when your captain, who isn't an offensively gifted player, gets caught pinching twice. Why the %!+$ he feels the need to make bad pinches instead of playing defense is beyond me. More of a backbreaker than a bad Duby goal.

Those pinches happened when they were down and attempting to tie the game. It is sort of a hero or zero situation, when it works you are a hero.

I have no problem with pressing your luck a bit when you are down 2-1 late.

Oilers figured they could duplicate the old Oilers by drafting the most skilled player each year rather than conventional wisdom that most would use - shore up the backend first and center figuring they could fix that in other ways - which still has not happened to any usable degree . Size and grit was left on the after burners . Lowe and Oiler fans got what they wanted , and now have to suffer the consequences of that type of rebuild .

You could start another rebuild , but this time you had better get pieces that are upsized to NHL status rather than just gutting away personnel and contracts . It will certainly have to be better than last few years attempts that ended in downgrades all over the roster . A new vision and definitely one with more foresight . The rebuild turned into a disaster as results bear out -tough to argue otherwise . At least one positive is the club is financially strong despite the results of the club , and a fan base that does not seem to mind this poor resulting "Never Ending Story " .

And regarding Eakins:

If the team is playing as uncohesively as they are now four weeks from now and the record is 4-10ish then it is entirely possible he is fired - along with most of his staff. Barry melrose got canned by Florida only 15 games in.

Clearly coaching isn't the only issue - but is one right now. Compare his lack of success to that of another rookie coach from the ahl - Patrick Roy.

It's not Roy's coaching winning those games. Take a look at Colorado's team sv%:

Tough to argue with what you're saying about Linus. Still, I'm gonna try:

1. how many teams took a pass on Marty St Louis before he got a fair chance?

2. Every time I've been able to watch Omark, I've been impressed with his hustle, effort, creativity and puck possession. I don't get to watch the Oil as much as I'd like (stupid real life) so I've missed a lot of the Omark saga, but what I've observed firsthand is in direct opposition to what I hear secondhand.

I'll admit the stats back the 'Not an NHL player' argument, (especially in the preseason) but hey, look at the panic/criticism/excuse making/controversy surrounding Yakupov. Does Yak get the same treatment as Omark? Nope. He's had so much more opportunity than Omark, and nobody (rightfully so) would dream of sending him to OKC when he's slumping. Why doesn't Omark get a chance to find his game over a full season with the team, including PP time. I'm not saying that Omark is the same player as Yak, but Nail is benefitting from more opportunity in a lockout season than Omark has gotten in 5 years.

I think Omark can play, but might never get a legit opportunity. I guess if you want to be an offensive player in Edm, you've got to be drafted first overall or learn your trade at the World Juniors or with another team that has an effective system for helping players get better. The Oil do not develop skill forwards - those guys spin their wheels in the minors and never get better or get a look. Do the players get some of the blame? Of course, but look at the pattern: Rob Schremp, MPS, Omark, Rajala. All had potential, none have achieved it here.

Well, the thing is that Omark has almost a league minimum contract at $600,000. He was placed on waivers so EVERY team in the league could have had his tiny little contract by giving up no assets.

Every team in the league passed on him. Maybe they know something?

Not to rain on your parade because I think Galchenyuk is a talent, however I would bet my last dollar that if Yak was playing with 2 guys with the talent AND effort of Gallagher and Eller, you'd see a different result. I would also suggest that Galchenyuk Gordan and Smyth would yield Yak's current results.

Everyone says that Eakins likes duos ... Who is Yakupov's?

All that being said, JG has it right and Nail needs to be awesome in spite of his linemates. When his effort level reaches a level of consistency that is required for the nhl, he'll be the stud (no pun intended) we all want him to become.

Last: in regards to a trade, in one second I'd send Nail or Eberle to Nashville for Seth Jones. Big stay at home defenseman who's NHL ready and is likely to be a #1 d man just about the time we round into a conference leading competitor in say... 2-3 years. Bold? Absolutely. Bring it on.

Games against eastern teams will be really interesting this year. Most teams change their line ups quite a bit from year to year and because of the lockout (spit), it's been a long time since The Oilers played a lot of these teams.

The Habs especially have really changed so this game almost seems like kind of a crap shoot; anything could happen.

I'm excited to see Galchenyuk play against The Oilers first line to see how they match up. I hope Eakins plays Yakupov on the first line so he plays against his old teammate but that probably won't happen.

I wonder if Yakupov will ever play on the top line?

And fingers crossed for a bounce back game from Dubnyk.

Also, that Thornton quote is priceless. I don't get why people try to take the entertainment value out of the game.

Eberle Shooting % vs Yaks

Eberles was written about because;

- his was over the course of the whole year - his was done at the age of 21 - he doesnt naturally shoot as much as yakupov - eberle played with high end linemates that create a lot of room for him

Yakupov was not written about because;

- his was done as a 19 year old - it was only a half year and those stats usually dont get analyzed - hes shoots more than eberle - his linemates were not as good

People still think yakupovs percentage will regress. But not his points totals. People feel Eberle has gotten to a high level of his overall game, but that yakupov has much further to go. Neither will sustain those percentages but yakupovs game will equate to more points in the future.

Both are good, but Yak does have a higher ceiling.

@Oilers need Ogie Ogilthorpe!

I agree with your statement that the Oilers have a very poor history of developing young players (other than the very top picks). Players like Pitlick, Hamilton, and Lander all were highly touted at the draft yet have not progressed. I'm not comparing Yak to Omark, but I'm guessing if we put Yak on waivers, there'd be GM's falling over themselves to put in the claim. Teams with much better track records for developing players (Detroit, Chicago, San Jose, etc.) do not feel that Omark is worth claiming and developing in their system. If they don't want him, I sure don't have any hope of the Oilers to turn him into an NHL player.

Also have Shaw Direct, game 'temporarily unavailable'. Can't get through on phone, their website is not working. Why couldn't this have happened to the CBC channel last weekend?
