      Paarjarvi needs to bring a bit more to the table. He is not playing horrible, but not playing his best either. Hope he knows this too.

      What do you take from a game like this, where the scoring chances tell a very different story than shot differential? Which do you give more weight to?

      • dawgbone

        They tell 2 different stories.

        1. The shot totals suggest that a lot of the play was in the Oilers zone, which it was.

        2. That in this particular game, the Oilers were able to keep the Vancouver away from the middle of the ice and forced them to shoot from bad locations.

          Okay, but which one is more repeatable/correlated to wins over a large sample size?

            Now is not the time for questions, Adam. Enjoy the ride.

            Maybe if Hemsky comes back, and has his game … then a Smyth-Horcoff-Hemsky line can outplay the best players from the bad guys, and set the table for everyone else. A few bounces here and there, young players get better, hopefully Oilers mgmt refrains from making any trades … there’s reason for hope here.

            There hasn’t been that in a while, at least not for me. This is no time for deep thinking.

            Generally speaking, shots and scoring chances correlate rather well with each other, hence more shots = more scoring chances.

            Which would I rather have? Scoring chances.

      Adam: I imagine you can’t keep winning while being outshot.

      Without having done any real research at all, I’d say that the scoring chances are probably more valuable in terms of the special teams, simply because it’s kind of a given that the play will be in your end if you’re down a man, but if you can keep them from getting any actual chances then you’re probably doing pretty damn well.

      Adam: for a long time I’ve said the Oilers need to go with six PK guys up front and i remember Renney used to roll that way when he coached the Rags. It’s happening here now and the results are great. The Oilers don’t give up a lot of chances on the PK and the results are bought and paid for.

      This looks a lot like a MacT team given the look of the PK and the way it’s easy for the smart fan to predict matchups and the rotation of the lines. I for one welcome a good sensible approach back to Edmonton:) My prediction is that if the Oilers stay healthy – which is very unlikely given that 6 and 83 are so brittle – they will finish no worse than 11th in the conference.
