GDB: BATTLE OF ALBERTA

It's an ill will she blows this morning, ladies and men. We are stone cold frozen, indoors, outdoors and in the western conference. The blues aren't blue enough, the country tear-jerkers can't find the lines, the poets can't stop the clocks in rhyme. 

The Battle of Alberta is desolation row. 

BUT WE'LL GET THERE BEFORE THEM!

bubbling under

Really? REALLY? The tortoise and the hare had a point to their story, I'm not sure 'one frozen bubble against another one' will galvanize our collective spirits in Alberta province. 

Is there ANY good news? And don't tell me the draft! 

CALGARY FLAMES PROJECTED LINEUP

  • TJ Galiardi-Mikael Backlund-Jiri Hudler
  • Mike Cammalleri-Sean Monahan-Joe Colborne
  • Lance Bouma-Matt Stajan-David Jones
  • Paul Byron-Markus Granlund-Kevin Westgarth
  • TJ Brodie-Mark Giordano
  • Kris Russell-Derek Smith
  • Ladislav Smid-Dennis Wideman
  • Reto Berra

The Flames have some good hockey players heading out tonight, and some of them will be playing their last game with the fiery C. Mike Cammalleri should get significant interest, young Backlund has once again overcome major obstacles and the all-Canadian Monahan looks sharp in every photo. The Flames Corsi for % 5x5 is 45.2%, fourth worst in the league but there are some champions in the group:

  • Galiardi 50.8%
  • Giordano 50.5%
  • Backlund 49.4%
  • Brodie 49.3%
  • Cammalleri 49.2%

The complete list is here   and it is worth noting Calgary has only three position players who have been on the ice for more than 300 minutes while posting a sub 43% Corsi for 5x5 %.

EDMONTON OILERS PROJECTED LINEUP

  • Hall-Nuge-Hemsky
  • Perron-Gagner-Eberle
  • Hendricks-Gordon-Joensuu
  • Jones-Smyth-Gazdic
  • Marincin-Petry
  • N Schultz-J Schultz
  • Ference-Belov
  • Bryzgalov

Nail Yakupov's injury isn't considered serious, but it's also likely they hold him back for tonight's game. Do the Oilers have some good news, something similar to the Flames' men who are close to 50% or better Corsi for 5x5?

The Oilers Corsi for 5x5% is 43.3%, they are one below Calgary in the race (don't you laugh, Toronto  only Buffalo saves you!)

  • Martin Marincin 50.2%

The numbers are here.  Edmonton has five players who have been on the ice for more than 300 minutes while also posting a sub 43% Corsi for 5x5 %.


SOME SWEET DAY

lake louise

History tells us this will not last. Calgary will have a fine trade deadline, add some picks and prospects and live to fight another day. Edmonton appears to have invested heavily in hiring a new coach each season, so the only impressive thing is the number of first overall selections on their roster. 

Calgary and Edmonton are driving toward that goal this summer, first overall. In that race, Edmonton is judge, jury and executioner. For Oiler fans, the promise of a first overall pick is like a kick in the junk, a stomach turner, a false spring. 

The Flames should learn the lesson presented to them by Edmonton—it's pretty damn hard to come back quickly from scorched earth, even when good soil lies all about you. 

GAME DAY PREDICTION: Flames and Oilers play to a 1-1 tie and no one can score in the shootout. Finally, Ladislav Smid drives in over the blueline and goes shelf on a very surprised Ilya Bryzgalov.

OBVIOUS GAME DAY PREDICTION: Flames win 5-1, on 5 shorthanded goals. All by Smid. 

NOT-SO-OBVIOUS GAME DAY PREDICTION: CBC's After Hours becomes trade central as both Mike Cammalleri and Ales Hemsky are sent to Pittsburgh right after the game.

I've said it since about game 10, but I really think the Oilers players gave up early on playing for Eakins. I think it's possible the breaking point was likely the treatment of Yakupov early in the season, imo.

The players were all gifted long term 42 million dollar contracts, can't really blame them for thinking they are in charge.

Unfortunately for Eakins his value is far less than the young guns, bit of a mismatch really.

Eakins is not a player coach, it's his style and his way or the hiway. Talented players doesn't like to play for him, Eakins like plumbers and grinding players, he like the career AHL players. Eakins pissed Kadri off in Toronto, he called him fat and over weight. Eakins now running Yakupov out of town in Edmonton too. Eakins took old Oilers team photos off dressing room (Gretzky, Messier are god there) so now this team has noone to look up to. Eakins took away the donuts and goodies, then kids love junk foods. Watch what Eakins does not what Eakins says, he's all talk but he can't deliver. Eakins does not compromise, players will not play for him. You can see the body language of their plays on the ice after the first 10 games.

You forgot to go back even further to 2007. If we had lost that last game of the year, we would have been the one to win the lottery to get Kane. Instead we got Gagner.

As soon as the Republik of Oilerville got wind of the planned protest, the troublemakers would have said ears confiscated and would be escorted from the premises never to be allowed to watch another game again.

The Oilers worst Draft year was 2007. Easily could have wound up with Logan Couture,Max Pacioretty and David Perron.

Instead we took Sam Gagner, Alex Plante and Riley Nash. Way to go Kevin Lowe.

He was promoted him shortly after that.

Well gang I think ive finally figured out the oilers offensive .... come in 1 on 4 toe drag around the d burst around the net and cough up the puck right up the slot with everyone crashing the net then dog it back to pick the puck out of your net. As for defence .... well everyone who's not caught on a bad change dog it back find your man point him out with your stick or hand so everyone knows who your supposed to check then stop skating watch and collapse towards the puck carrier and pick the puck out of your net. At least Dallas is consistent with one thing everyone on the team is really good at picking pucks outa the net!

In the first year of the Flames retune, I'd say that's a great sign for Monahan. Flames will be pretty good in 5 years time. The Oil on the other fan, 8 years in, nevermind...

@Jordan Nugent-Hallkins

Crosby, Toews, and Malkin are all great possession players who are as good in their own end as in the offensive zone. Hall, when he has a chance to hustle back and break up a 3-on-1, changes. When his own team is hemmed in its own end, he's out at the red line cherry-picking. Seriously, there's a damned good reason Team Canada took Kunitz over Hall.

Monahan is still just 19 so it's too early to say what kind of player he'll turn out to be. Currently, he still needs a lot of shelter to score. Fortunately for the Flames, playing against Hall counts as "shelter".

Like I have said before, our BEST chance of landing Ekblad is Eakins.

There are many writers that state Coaching is not our problem, they keep shoving their collective heads in the sand deeper and deeper hoping that something will change to prove their point.

Just how many first round draft choices/player changes are required before everyone agrees that Coaching is currently our biggest problem.

We can all talk of trades, coaching changes, drafts, etc. till we are blue in the face.

Facts are. Worst team in NHL since Lowe involved with the team. Since Lowe and Mac T involved, worst team and the professional sports industry magazine ranks Oilers management as the worst of all professional teams in North America. Record clearly shows this to be true.

All the things we want listed above will not happen until new leadership takes place. Otherwise as long as katz still has Lowe in charge, we have no leadership and zero hockey smarts. Statistically speaking, any citizen of the country whether the know anything about hockey could do a least as good of a job. It is impossible to get worse.

Sorry folks. Time to quite dreaming and hoping for anything good. It is not going to happen. It is time to walk and boycott all remaining games to send a message. Write letters to Oilers. Post signs. Picket etc. It is time.

Personally i doubt Nashville would even go for that deal.

Oiler management with 6 ring and pro hockey player backgrounds simply do not have the management ability to assess talent relevant to market and make the big deal. Tim Murray in Buffalo has done more in 2 months to rebuild the Sabres than Lowe has done in 7 years.

I would agree with you that they could be in conversation for the best defensive team ever put together, but completely disagree on the best team in hockey history,

Their struggle to score goals doesn't allow me to put them in that category. They were one unlucky bounce away from losing to Latvia in the quarter-finals. The forwards were bailed out by the defense both offensively and defensively. If it wasn't for the great defense and solid goaltending, we would all be talking about Canada's complete lack of goal-scoring ability.

The team was picked to play the 200 foot game.Were they the most exciting team ,no.That would go to Team Canada 1986 . Gretzky to Mario it does not get better than that.

This Team had a .059 GOA against the best players in the world. That says it all.

OKC DEFENSIVE SYSTEM?

Last time I checked the OKC Barons were second last in the AHL in goals against. Oilers are second last in the NHL in goals against. By the end of the season, both the Oilers and their farm team might be last amoung 30 teams in goals against in each league.

So the Oilers defence (not just defencemen, team defence) is awful.

Eakins says their offence is bad too. And Gregor has demonstrated that this true.

Bad defence, bad offence, what is left? The Oilers franchise is a joke and there is almost nothing happening with the farm team that gives any real hope.

A few thoughts:

1. Eberle, Hall, Yak and Nuge are disinterested and don't appear to want to stay with the Oil.

2. Eakins is a brutal coach and has no idea how to run a bench or motivate a team.

3. With Tambellini gone and MacT floundering, one has to wonder if they are both incompetent GM's or if the interference from above (Lowe, Katz) hamstrings the GM.

4. Oiler fans have given up, just like their team.

5. Flames resigned Stajan - enough said.

6. Westgarth gets a regular shift with the Flames. He wouldn't get a regular shift in a beer league that plays at 11:30 PM on Sunday nights.

7. Brian Burke looks like a drunk that just came off a three day bender.

8. Neither team appears heading in the right direction. Frightening times in Alberta.

Players most interested in over achieving include Cammalleri, Gagner, Hemsky and Wideman. All should busting their butts to increase their chances of leaving this misery.
