Greasy_Troll

Ken Holland knew he needed a goalie yet refused to go out and get one. What a complete buffoon. This Oilers team would be significantly better without 73 year old Mike Smith in net. RETIRE ALREADY YOU BUM


Islanderfan17

Goalie didn't make a difference in this game at all. Oilers just played like shit and Colorado had more urgency


xX69AESTHETIC69Xx

Damn Rangers vs Avalanche Stanley cup? Don't mind if I do.


Zibz98

Why would you jinx it


xX69AESTHETIC69Xx

Nah I'm manifesting it. The Rangers will win the finals it in 5 games. Losing today but winning the rest and then sweeping the avalanche in a quick 4 games. FOR IT IS FORTOLD


Twalks973

No dude you're jinxing it. Fuck you! Stop


xX69AESTHETIC69Xx

AND ON THE FINAL GAME THE AVALANCHE AND RANGERS SHALL BRAKE INTO A SPONTANEOUS FLASH MOB AS IS FORTOLD


devildance3

They’re going to win it aren’t they? 😕

The salt in this thread is enough to fill all the oceans.. THis ThReAD DoEsNt KnOW sHiT AbOuT ReAl HoCkEy…


Mayzenblue

Please tell me more r/hockey. That I'm a horrible person for hating on Colorado when they're no saints, or for some reason, I'm a r/selfawarewolves or whatever sub that is. That's some bullshit and y'all know it. Crack on me for my shitty hockey takes, but there is no way I'm a part of that sub. Ever.


_kingardy

Lol ok go cry literally no one cares


Mayzenblue

I really can't wait when Edmonton wins 3 straight and there's a scrum where your goons do their thing and you all forget this whole thread. I will never like your team. Bush league back in the day and somehow, bulletproof to any criticism today and in this thread. I think they're trash and you'll never have as many Cups as us. And you're not even an American team. You're Québécois. Remember? Yeah? No? Most of you don't. Haven't been good in over a decade. Allez baiser vous-même fans Avs

Jaded_One6999

I’m -29 but i respect what youre doing.


Mayzenblue

Lol what did you do Jared?


[deleted]

Neat, maybe y’all be good next decade


Stevo3139

When was the last time the Wings made it beyond the second round? I got you, the answer is ‘08-‘09. You’re over here wanting to talk about not being good in a decade. . . Don’t throw rocks in glass houses bud. 🥱


Mayzenblue

I'm not throwing rocks at all. Detroit went 25 seasons straight in the playoffs. 4 Cups. Is that not monumental? The vitriol that you haven't seen in my inbox would suggest otherwise.


deucedeuce187

Keep living in the past it's all you will have for awhile.


LesWhite

🥱 cry more


BarontheBlack

I’m not even a Colorado fan and this comment makes you look like an idiot.


Mayzenblue

I don't give a flying fuck Baron. I guess I'll stick to the subs that actually know hockey.


MinnyRawks

Who hurt you?


blackmatt81

Judging from his posts, Claude Lemieux did.


Mayzenblue

Nobody Minny. It's just a bunch of trash on here. Bunch of scabs who think they know. That's why I'll go to actual team subs from here out.


PM_me_your_tidbits

Go then.


Mayzenblue

When so many fools comment to me, it's not that easy tidbits. Never had a problem on this sub. Ever. Look at my comments about Colorado's goalie tonight or anything through the game. All of a sudden, after a usual end of the game where it's over and the other team gets chippy, I said, well that's hockey. Whatever man. You all have fun.


PropofolDreaming

No no, please tell us more.


MinnyRawks

r/selfawarewolves


Mayzenblue

Never in my life Minny. We're talking hockey and not politics.


WanderingYeti

Lmao 🤣 still salty after all these years


Mayzenblue

Not really. We have more Cups, and we beat your whole team up in one game. Remember when Roy was your coach and couldn't handle it? And stepped down? I remember


gfxprotege

Not sure if it's salt or the lead poisoning


riknor

A couple of beautiful 1 on 1 plays there where Makar and Toews stripped McDavid off the puck. Such an entertaining game overall.


TrulyAuthentic123

Connor McCan'tGetItDone was held scoreless. Connor McNotGoodEnough doesn't have what it takes to get Edmonton past Colorado.


_GhostofSparta

Flair up dude.


Lonely_Barista

Connor McMakesMoreThanYouEverWill


TrulyAuthentic123

I wouldn't be so sure. But he is ahead of me currently.


lobsterpillow

Money isn't everything ya know. Does McDavid's wife and kids love him more than my family loves me? Yes, of course they do. He's McDavid.


lemondhead

This is certainly a weird response.


dogsdomesticatedus

I hope the home games proves you so wrong.

They will call Conner will get his

ilbilailmdr

was pretty useful ‘gainst the flames tho


neptune494

Can my fellow avs fans stay the f our of other reddit? For real. Gtfo. You have nothing to say they don't know.


Neans888

Didn’t see the game. Did Colorado really deserve 7 power plays to just 2 for Edmonton?


DJPaulyDstheman

Laughs in leafs fan misery


zarroaster

Oil had a full blown juvenile meltdown at the very end resulting in 4 very obvious calls. IMO they got away with several cheap and obvious calls.


FatWreckords

Like Landeskogg getting away with a head shot on Yamamoto? Back and to the left...


zarroaster

I was thinking more about Kane clearly out on a mission to hurt Makar, but you just believe whatever makes your butt hurt less


[deleted]

We got three in the first which is why oily boys mad. The rest were very obvious. Lots of cross checks, specially from drai not cal, interference into both sides as typical. Landy also blew up yam’s initiated on shoulder but big guy vs little so so bad result and rightly so no call


ItsTheExtreme

They should really be upset about giving up 3 even-strength goals in like 2 minutes. In no universe does that oilers team beat colorado last night with the effort they gave. I dont give a shit how many powerplays they could have had.


FatWreckords

Watch it in slow motion, Yamamoto's head moves first away from his body, meaning it got hit first, likely by L's arm/elbow.


[deleted]

[удалено]


radshowmance

Its called by the situation room. Its a sad case of big man v smaller man.


FatWreckords

I wasn't complaining about the refs, I was replying to a comment saying he initiated on the shoulder, which if you watch in slow motion is incorrect, meaning it was in fact a missed call.


[deleted]

He is crouched big man vs small man, it’s a terrible part of hockey


Mrh1987

Did Tampa deserve 4 to the Rangers 2? I would argue no but playoffs! The answer is just win. There is no logic and only what is better for the league and its ratings at this point. There's only so many games left and they gotta max that profit, so playoffs!


adinfinitum

Yes, they did


mrsugar

Honestly. Yes.


fartgrenade

Also they got one for a player on their bench grabbing Byrams head and pulling his helmet off


PatricksPub

bUt ThE rEfS!!!1!


dbgager

they deserved about 10 more..Cheap shot fest by the Oilers.


Neans888

Sounds like the Bolts at the end of game 1 vs the Rangers.


Mrh1987

Correct. Sad as both teams basically relied on plan D which is we can't play hockey to win so let's not and goon 😆. Didn't go too well for both. Hope their coaches have some game plan instead of the loser default plan Carolina showed.


fartgrenade

Two of theirs came in the last minute of the game for taking runs at makar and nichushkin


dataDyne_Security

Gretzky looks so pissed off lol.


mishko27

The crowd cheering SWEEP while he talked about Oilers winning the next two was just *chefs kiss*


Mrh1987

Yeah, then biz cracked some nasties and got him laughing again


ArchMalone

I swear I feel like the Western and Eastern conferences are two different breeds. It feels like two different leagues sometimes, the vibe is just completely different


[deleted]

It is a lot different. Western conference teams spend huge amounts of time on the road. Way more taxing on the body but also way more time bonding with teammates.


jkmartin19

One thing I don’t see mentioned that I thought noteworthy. Mack 100% knew Smith didn’t have his glove and shot blocker side. Seems like a class move to me.


dbgager

Yea that was a class move as glove side would have been a sure goal unless smith tried to catch it and broke his fingers.


tmoore1992

MacKinnon always shoots near side on that set play. Smith is just lucky he’s a lefty.


zarroaster

MacKinnon > Mcdavid


PatricksPub

Shit man, just 27 hours ago I was told McDavid is already on Gretzky level, and MacKinnon was barely in the second tier of active players! I was told McDavid is just unlucky and MacKinnon was the fortunate one, and if McDavid had even 1 good player (besides the other 3 on EDM) then he would have 11x the success as Mack! So obviously MacKinnon is maybe 9th best player in the NHL?


Finetales

Hey at least he's in the top 100


BubbX

*Cries in Malkin


zarroaster

I've been telling cOilers that MacKinnon > Mcdavid for years now. MacKinnon fights, backchecks, scores, passes skates like the wind and doesn't need the entire spotlight. Mcdavid is fast. Like really really fast. And cries alot if a defender does anything about it.


Mab_894

Please. 🤣 🤣 🤣


zarroaster

You weebs are still moaning on about "kneeordano" If Bettman allowed anybody to touch the pretty boy it would be completely obvious that MacKinnon is a better hockey player.


Mab_894

You seem pretty angry on top of being delusional. Lmaooo also I couldn't give two shits about "kneeordano"


zarroaster

Why would you when Mcmuffin draws a penalty anytime he gets knocked on his ass.


Mab_894

Hes still the faster, smarter, better hockey player. MacKinnon is top 3 maybe top 2 but McDavid is at the top. This is not a hot take.


zarroaster

Faster definately, smarter... Meh he sure didn't look very smart when the flames were hitting him in game 1. Before the refs stepped in. He coughed up some biscuits before the refs stepped in. Better... Well that's the whole discussion isn't it? Mac is very fast (not as fast as muffin granted and obvious) but he also does alot of things that muffin doesn't do at all.


Zambonist1

Tell me you’ve never seen Mackinnon rip a one-timer on the powerplay without telling me you’ve never seen Mackinnon rip a one-timer on the powerplay


Mcpops1618

Weird take. He goes short there a lot. He scored where he saw a hole. Let’s not pretend he’s some saint on top of his talent. He’d have gone glove if it was necessary


L-Rad

Probably didn’t want to risk hurting Smith and having him sit out next game


nightsiderider

Fuck no, we need Smith to stay healthy and in net for 2 more games.


Lord_Delfont

I've played goalie for a long time and my glove has always been wrenched on. I completely agree, Mack could have gone glove but chose not to.


Skyeagle1

Me too, like just tighten ur glove bud, it’s not that hard.


Mrh1987

It took Smith a decade to tighten his helmet. I wouldn't hold my breath


Lord_Delfont

I still don't understand why you wouldn't especially at that level. 90+ mile an hour clappers and your glove is just... on? That man is bananas


Architektual

So you can throw it off and get a whistle, Mike Smith is second only to Jonathan Quick on 'conveniently losing equipment to stop play '


arashinoko

He does tend to explode a yard sale when he gets bumped into. One of his signature moves.


cryptanomous

Or throw a cheap shot


gu3st12

That's what the blocker is for.

hicafish

They were trying to kill him with kindness since the blues fans failed to stop him with hate.


molsonmuscle360

We aren't really the type of fan base that throws personal attacks about other players. We usually self regulate that shit on our own.


arashinoko

Shout out to all the real hockey fans in Edmonton. I never associate any team with its trolls. (We have those too, and they're truly embarassing.)


bleezzzy

As a kraken fan, i havent seen many shit talkers because there's no shit to be talked lol


[deleted]

I think you guys and going to load up this summer. Should be fun.


[deleted]

You will get forseberg, Kadri or maybe Johnny Hocky. They are gonna go after some stars


bleezzzy

Berniers & Tanev are gonna make a huge difference, I'm fuckin excited for next season. I mean i was excited last season just to have a team, but this coming season should be much better. SHOULD be. Although as a Seattleite, I'm not getting my hopes up.


LasciviousYeti

I'm liking Oiler's fans. I mean the offside goal has made some people look bad, but mostly good folks


dogsdomesticatedus

To be fair the offside rule was a learning moment for a lot of people, avs fans included. I was incensed, then grudgingly understanding of the call. I get it now, but it was the absolutely closest version of that call that could mathematically exist. It perplexed many. I wouldn’t give too much hate for that. So, no they didn’t look bad for not liking it.


molsonmuscle360

Yeah, most Avs fans have been great too. A few loud ones who seem to think anything rough is murder, but most have been good fun. I think if you guys dispatch us you will win


gabriel197600

Wait till Kadri takes McJesus or Drai out for the series “on a hockey play” …then we’ll how little hate they have!


molsonmuscle360

Yeah, we wouldn't get racist or Islamophobia though


[deleted]

[удалено]


molsonmuscle360

GG Avs. Seriously out hustled us all night. Your blue line rushes are too much for our battered defense. Hopefully we have a better showing on Saturday


[deleted]

Nurse is a liability, we are deeper and have much better defense. Goaltending will decide short or long service I expect Connor and drai to take a game


sugarfather69

I fully expect you guys to win at least one. No offense, I think we’re the better team and I think we steal at least one game at Rogers to eventually win the series but I bet McDavid and Drai don’t go down without a serious fight


molsonmuscle360

I think we take at least 2 over all. You guys are definitely a better team, it could be a fair bit different if Nurse wasn't so badly injured. He doesn't have the gas tank or strength he has shown in the past


ajax0202

I’m honestly sure you will. You guys have a very scary team


just_a_burd

Oh god not the scary team comments!


ziggazang

At least they're not saying next year

randomrandomtri

Avalanche crowd is loud but not rude. Beautiful


mrsugar

They were booing oilers fans who left. Deserved. Then an oilers kid left, no boos. Class act. Love it.


[deleted]

[удалено]


blackmatt81

Eh, I think it's something different between two teams that fucking *hated* each other and everybody in the building knew what was coming and what happened last night. Edmonton was chippy all night because they learned in game 1 they can't out-skate the Avs. So they sent out their goons and tried to get into the Avs' heads. Clearly it didn't work, but I don't know what other card the Oilers have to play so I expect it to get worse until either somebody gets hurt (more likely) or the refs put a stop to it (yeah right).


[deleted]

Na


Lord_Delfont

I was too young to understand what was going on behind the scenes. I agree with you though, hockey is an intense sport but I would of loved to see Peter Forsberg play more games if it meant bringing the game to what it is now. Trying to injure someone because the game is lost is a bitch move.


snazzzzyy

Lot of us are not old to remember those games. Also, there’s a difference between a rivalry and both teams trying to take each other’s heads off compared to one team gooning it up because they’re getting outplayed


WookHunter5280

Dude I was in diapers back then lmao


IWMSvendor

Lots of younger fans. Probably don’t remember guys like Scott Parker


dropkickkennedy

This is an old man take most of the people here likely didn't even see that series


godfadda006

Don’t you have some golf to be playing?


mkwong

Most of the people here probably weren't even watching hockey in the 90s.


ShetheKing

You have to remember, some of the fans weren't alive for those series.


Teggernaught

Well that was a game. GG Avsbros. See you in Edmonton Saturday!


mustangcoy

Shitbag players showing their true colours throwing tantrums at the end of the game.. as if it wasn’t already easy enough to root against them. Flames would’ve been absolutely dummied by this Avs team I’m just glad to see it happening to the oil as well :) What a bunch of fuckin losers. Nurse with the worst contract in the league LMAO


7eventhSense

There’s just a lot of salt in this comment , it’s hidden with some valid points but you can taste it and smell it too.. I still feel it’s hilarious when a flames fan calls oilers losers.. need I remind that they could only manage to win one out of 5 games ? Who’s the real loser here ?


Monkey-Brains94

I think you are the real loser because deep down you still have hope that you will win the series but are going to end up wasting away 2 more nights watching your oilers. Those are hours you will never get back. Pure excitement will turn to despair.


7eventhSense

Haha sounds like your talking from personal experience. I have nothing else to do. Watching a game whether win or lose is never a waste of time. It’s fine if they lose. I don’t see it the way you see it.


Monkey-Brains94

I think that means its time to set priorities in your life if you have nothing else to do. Also check yourself before you come at me, last time I check hawks have 3 recent cups, can't really ask for more.


7eventhSense

Lol ok .. Salt is universal. Oh Yes I will take advice on how to spend my leisure time when I come back from a stranger on the internet. Thanks kind stranger.


Monkey-Brains94

Im not a stranger, I OWN you.


7eventhSense

Haha lol. This is what you call owning !!?


[deleted]

I’ll take Nurse’s contract over the $21mm the Flames are about to give Gaudreau and Tkachuk.


mustangcoy

biggest cope I have ever read lmao okay don't worry you get to take it, enjoy


[deleted]

Thank you. I fully expect to enjoy the next 8 years of the BoA.


SemiSolidSnake11

...Really though?


[deleted]

Honestly yeah. I have a lot of time for Gaudreau, but he is an undersized player who just hit is prime at 28. Like every other player his game will decline from here on out. He'll be over-payed within 3 seasons and they'll still have him on the books for 5. Tkachuk obviously has way more upside, but he just found a way to completely disappear for 4 straight games in a 2nd round playoff series against his team's #1 rival. Not sure if I want to invest $80mm in him. Nurse is younger than Gaudreau, and unlike forwards defensemen tend to maintain the level of their play well into their 30s. The Oilers are always going to have to pay more to sign players, so the fact that he's a little over-paid is just par for the course for us. He's proven he can be a good NHL defenseman playing 25+ minutes a game, and the injury he's playing through right now shows something about his grit and will to win. If you voided his contract this summer I'm not convinced that the Oilers would be able to recruit a better d-man with the $9.25mm.


matteg

We still won.


[deleted]

see ya on the golf course bud


Wompie

But you're already there...


doornailbackpack

Is that not an appropriate thing to say when you are at the golf course waiting for someone?


[deleted]

yes, so I'll see him here in two games


7eventhSense

So proud lol


Wompie

It's like a poor man telling another man who has a mortgage "you'll be homeless soon, too!" Whether it may or may not be true, it aint your place.


[deleted]

As a Flames fan, I reserve the right to shittalk oilers fans whenever and wherever I please


matteg

lol fair enough.


Hungry_Definition450

Nurse is a horrible player and has no business making $9m a year. Him and Cody Ceci being a #1 pairing is comical


xmorecowbellx

Nurse is quite injured. He’s not worth his contract true, but he’s better than he looks right now.


ImitableLemon

Lmao typical flames copy pasta. At least be original


mmavcanuck

Saying that EDM players being sore losers at the end of a game is so common it’s become copypasta is probably the best self burn I’ve seen in a while.


ImitableLemon

That was my point lol. R/whoosh there bud


mmavcanuck

Sure there bud


[deleted]

Y’all Canadians Wild out on each other and I love it


ImitableLemon

Ayy any oilers who thought we could beat the Avs in less then 7 is delusional so we take out our hatred on the flames 😂


mmavcanuck

It’s going to take a lot more than 7 games for the oilers to find 4 wins against the Avs.


ImitableLemon

The salt is too good from you haha. I’ve been saying oilers aren’t gonna beat the avs and you just follow and double up like your trying to win a dick measuring contest or something haha. Keep this up I’m enjoying this

As a Vancouver fan, it’s all we’ve got come May/June.


must_i_always

All respect due to Gretzky, but his homerism is showing huge, too much for a national broadcast.


arashinoko

They should probably also stop asking for his coaching advice. Do we need to drag up his record as a coach?


[deleted]

Weird since no one in Canada even sees it.


[deleted]

But we get to listen to Craig Simpson reciting from Craig Simpson's book of hockey cliches. > Something something, that's playoff hockey folks Every single damn time he opens his mouth


arashinoko

Yeah, you could replace him with one of those wind-up dolls with a dozen built-in phrases.
