Edmonton Oilers coach Todd McLellan gets it right with new line combos

This in from Jason Gregor of TSN1260: “#Oilers lines today…
RNH-McDavid-Rattie
Rieder-Draisaitl-Puljujarvi
Lucic-Strome-Yamamoto
Khaira-Brodziak-Kassian/Chiasson.

Caggiula is not skating.

Oilers D pairs looked the same…Top-four same partners, while Bouchard, (Benning) and Garrison in third pair. Bouchard did take a few rushes with Nurse, but I’d guess that was more due to having odd numbers.”

My take

I’m at the top of the list when it comes to backseat coaching, but every now and then I have to say Oilers coach Todd McLellan hits a grand slam home rum with me. He did that half-way through the Winnipeg game, with the Oilers down 4-1 and playing like they didn’t give a hoot and much of Oilers Twitter on fire calling for both McLellan and Oilers GM Peter Chiarelli to be axed. Yes, folks are on edge in Edmonton this year. But at that point, McLellan shifted gears, moving Drake Caggiula and Jesse Puljujarvi up to play with Leon Draisaitl on the second line, moving Milan Lucic and Kailer Yamamoto down to play with Ryan Strome on the third line, and keeping the first line in intact. The rest is modern Oilers’ comeback history.
Since the half-way point of last year I’ve argued that Lucic can have success as an Oilers and help the team win, but both he, his coaches and Oilers fans have to reframe his terms of success. He lacks the speed and finesse to play on a top attacking line with Connor McDavid or Leon Draisaitl, but he still has the grit and smarts to get the job done as a third-line two-way winger. That’s how he was finally deployed last night and I strongly suspect it’s the right fit for both Lucic and the Oilers.
I was OK with Puljujarvi leading the third line to build up his confidence, but he needs more playing time and he looks ready to shine with a top centre like Draisaitl or McDavid. That Oilers coach Todd McLellan had Puljujarvi on the ice with one minute to go and the scored tied in the Jets game is an indication that the coach has found a level of trust in the player.
I’m most relieved that when McLellan shook up the forward lines he stuck with the top line of McDavid, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Ty Rattie. Rattie has chipped in on all kinds of scoring chances in his first four games and finally found the back of net with his brilliant snipe off McDavid’s …read more

Utah Jazz players reveal their favorite jerseys for 2018-19 season

SALT LAKE CITY — Dante Exum likes to joke that the Utah Jazz are the only team in the NBA that has jerseys for every color of the rainbow.

The Australian guard may very well be right, too.

“But it’s good,” Exum said.

The 2018-19 campaign will not only present an opportunity for the close-knit Jazz team to build off last year’s playoff run, but the franchise also will be celebrating its 40th season of basketball in Salt Lake City.

Utah will bring in the season with style, with six different jerseys.

Nike has laced the Jazz with a purple classic edition, gradient city edition, yellow statement edition, navy blue icon edition, white association edition and a green earned edition that is rumored to debut on Christmas, when they host the Portland Trail Blazers.

Players seem to be happy with the plethora of choices. Spaniard floor general Ricky Rubio unveiled the throwback purple ones on social media and loves the concept.

“It’s between (the purple) one and the city edition,” Rubio said of his favorites. “That’s my pick or both of them.”

Joe Ingles also loves the purple throwback style that will be worn five times at home and four times on the road this season. The Nov. 7 matchup versus Dallas will mark the first time.

“Mine is purple, Ricky, thanks for asking,” Ingles answered Rubio during media day.

Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell says his picks are “the city one or the purple for sure,” while reigning Defensive Player of the Year Rudy Gobert unanimously selects the Nike Classic Edition purple uniforms above the other options.

“Everything that’s new is better, so I would say the purple one,” Gobert said, smirking.

Utah will break out the white association edition threads for the season opener at Sacramento on Oct. 17, then return to Vivint Arena two nights later in the same gear for an Oct. 19 game against the defending champion Golden State Warriors.

Nike classic edition jerseys and merchandise are expected to hit the Utah Jazz Team Store in mid-November.

An exclusive Jazz-branded Nike Team Store also opened in September at Vivint Arena to offer more selections. As the …read more
