Final training camp roster cuts…

By , October 4, 2010 9:59 am

Liam Reddox and Ryan O’Marra are the first names cut so far. Stay tuned for more….

Edit: Cuts are: Shawn Belle, Richard Petiot, Ben Ondrus, Liam Reddox, Alex Giroux and Ryan O’Marra. No word on Omark yet. All these guys have to clear waivers too.

Edit 2: Linus Omark and Chris Vande Velde are also cut. They don’t have to clear waivers and have been assigned to OKC. Omark none too happy about it…

    Oh, and to re-phrase Cato, “Strudwicko/Carthago delenda est”…

    Not because he’s not a great guy, but because he’s being embarassed out there. Petiot should have stayed, easy as that.

    NorwegianOiler: I like Renney’s ability to address vital areas of our game, but it remains to see if he can ice a team that accounts for the issues when it counts.
    The first period against the Flamers last game, in particular, highlighted the problem of being pushed out of a game. The less skilled Flamers players made crisp passes, always seemed to have a player open and forced us to make bad plays all over the ice. Even the ‘big’ guys were making intimidated plays, which has to be addressed if we are to go anywhere. We were swimming more than skating at times there. To me, MacIntyre type players is not the solution, though types like Jones, Jacques, Brule or Stortini might help. I hope they remember the tenacity shown during the first games under Quinn last season, in which almost all players showed the required amount of ‘pugnacity’ (to use a Burkeism :P )I am thrilled that we open the season in two days, but can’t say I am optimistic in regard to the result…

    Yah, my rant on Big Mac is he has to start taking a page from Jacques. I’m not sure he has it in him, but he said himself he wants to go out every shift and hit at least 1 guy out there. And it might sound small, but I think that would make him pretty effective. Hard to do though when you aren’t the fleetest of foot / agile.

    All Oilers clear waivers. As per twitter (Tencer and Rishaug).

    Also mentions that the lines are looking like:

  4. chucker says:

    I tend to agree with NO on this. It seems the competition in camp was great, but the players still played small against the Flames, who really were the first NHL team they faced.

    I think we’ll find out in a real hurry the effectiveness of the lineup. Again, I’m thinking it’s a lottery year, which is to be expected I guess, but some bigger, meaner players who can play would have been nice too.

    Linus just wasnt very strong on the puck, even against 1/4 NHL teams. I didnt expect him to make the big squad. He is NOT ready. He needs to go to OKC and work on boards and corner game and learn to adapt to…as Hartikainen said “the boards and corners are there alot faster”, meaning you have far less space and time. I pointed out a few times before camp that Eberle finds holes and is solid on the walls and corners and that Magnum likes to go N/S and only goes E W to get in holes and accelerate. Magnum and Eberle came into camp with a clear advantage over Linus.

    LInus needs to pack on a more solid foundation next summer but he could get a call up.

    Surprised about Reddox, he was very impressive.

    Petiot over Struds. *shakes head*. Struds should have been cut and sent to be a good guy on the farm.

  6. Racki says:

    I was actually surprised that they knocked on Petiot’s foot speed and his (lack of) physicality. Those were two things about him that surprised me in games I saw. I thought he skated up ice quite well, and he threw a pretty huge hit in front of me in the Phoenix game, I believe it was. But maybe I just “saw him good” in those cases.

  7. NorwegianOiler says:

    Agree with you Racki, I found it a bit odd that Petiot would get the feedback he did…I thought he played a solid 2-way role, including a few nice hits and some rushes with the puck. He looked quite confident out there.
    …“Strudwicko/Carthago delenda est”…

    (Can Souray be assigned to Stockton? :P)

  8. Racki says:

    I don’t see why he couldn’t be assigned to Stockton. And I’m not sure why they wouldn’t be content to do that. lol Far enough away from our real prospects.. no offense to the Stockton players. 😛
