The Edmonton Oilers head towards the trade deadline with a bunch of problems! I will need your help in the comments section to figure out how to change our fortunes in this NHL 18 Franchise Mode! The ups and downs of a typical Oilers season are wearing on the players, and management! Thanks for watching NHL 18 Franchise Mode on Dolynny TV!
this is Dolan et bien guys a big welcome back to the Edmonton Oilers franchise mode here in NHL 18 is he we sit 18 17 and 3 on the year two points back of a for-sure playoff spot the Vegas Golden Knights holding on the wild-card spot somehow the Arizona coyotes are holding down the division lead in the Pacific don't ask me how team leaders will go check that out because guys you do remember the trade we made last episode to get Dylan Larkin who is done alright not overall great but alright with 28 points in 39 games played yes he pulling over becoming around friends Nielsen doing alright but the thing is we have a lot of - players so what I'm gonna do is we're gonna go stack that top line all our centers on the top line we already have all centers on the top line as it stands right now well what we're going to get is we're going to go edit lines we're gonna move things around right now see what we can do here and it's a stage you I don't know why I want to move them up in terms of friends Nielsen but I'm not sure Nielsen looks to be a pretty solid player up there rocks gonna move pull your RV up there we're gonna move they don't rise have a little top line that's that's the move I'm hoping Bank Nolan get dry settle some more points try something new can work together a bit more huge having a fantastic year right 33 points the defense Matthew Benning 5 assists +2 he's been solid we'll keep him up there with Oscar left ball moves at 4 goals 16 assists has been beautiful and Ethan bear in his time winning goal - 7 but he'll grow nothing he's got to grow up here in the NHL a little bit darnell nurse five goals six assists and I'm Larson for gold six cysts the power play is the big thing I want to look at because we didn't do that last episode dry settle in Hopkins and Larson that's not quite gonna work for me we got to get Dylan Larkin and Newton Hawkins up there on that top line betting off to the power play unit and Center I'm out to get somebody else in here in terms of maybe like a Franz Nielsen type you know what I mean Franz Nielsen on the powerplay now I should give us a chance to get something going he's got a lot of assists so I like that and cammalleri is a finisher to all goals so should be able to get something accomplished there and with Larson and nurse on the second power play unit we should be good penalty kill penalty kill looks very solid pulley RV he comes for this 84 that's because he's a two way forward killing great penalties for us and getting that time he needs to grow this team come around looking sharp and now that we've made those changes let's see what we can do see if we can make up some ground here in to well we're going into January and we'll go get into the next six games sounds like a good time against Winnipeg is gonna be the first challenge and the scouting trip is done before we can figure out what we're gonna do with the Winnipeg game that's all right we'll go Scout forwards in the only child from one month to one win there and then a 2-1 ot win alright score only a couple of goals and that will come back to bite us because Anaheim some of these scores more then we win 5-1 lose 6-3 and we're still only a game above five hundred twenty one and twenty and three ot shoe road losses if you'd like so I'm not liking this this really isn't the positive we need we're now point back and playoffs okay so keep that in mind it's Vancouver holding down that final playoff spot Calgary in the top seed so the Pacific is all black except for the Oilers right now and then you see Newton Hawkins 39 points dry sidle 35 so dry settle picked up some points six points in six games Strom doing his thing lark and doing his thing some Larkins back to a plus one and Cammalleri not quite but he got the assist he only had four or three assists last time around pull we are we doing this thing okay it's teams starting to turn the corner I think we've got it just need to get the consistent offense going I think we find the goaltending needs to be a little bit stronger we knew that all along is he Arizona's got 54 points it's only a spread of 9 points between us and their division leaders so we take a couple games here within the division we could be sitting really really pretty against Arizona three nothing loss that's unfortunate Jordan Staal for a second third and Braden Christopher that's a heck of a trade that really boosters the team I'll just show you over talking in terms of Jordan Staal Jordan Staal at 29 years old 83 overall not a bad pickup at all that defense awareness unreal but we already have friends Nielsen we need making that trade 3-1 loss to Vegas suddenly were raped below 500 again gotta turn it around here against Vancouver ladies for sure and against mine and Cooper we won't get another 4-3 loss another close one or three win and come on Calgary has got to be a victory 71 statement game statement game right there seven it's one victory keep it rollin capable and where's Mike David what's he doing he's doing 49 points in 49 games we are 5 points back in the playoffs really couldn't have afforded to have Vancouver beat us there and they did you see here in Newton Hopkins marking up to 39 points the Lark and getting it done on that second line he's really having a good time dry cell 37 points strong 37 cammalleri up to 28 men Camilleri it's just blitzing away now and nielsen okay okay this team's starting to look good see slep chef doing all right and Ethan Baer 32 games played a goal and an assist in the game okay he's doing alright and who did we put in on that fourth line I forget was it a bird a birds looking around sharp if it was I don't think it was let's go check the lines I forget who's on our fourth line right now we need to reward some guys with some more time here we're going to edit lines see what we can do so it is a bird a bird with his ten points on the ear while moving the right wing and move jewelle over the left that should get those guys a little bit more comfortable again could you all the sudden of minus 13 on the air Kara - 3 8 8 points on that 8 points for Kara and at this stage you up to 16 points on the air trends Nielson no 23 is opposed to Coolio RVs 22 Camilleri I don't know remove Camilleri you know what will move cammalleri up to the top line and see what he can do is make Dave in them I should be the move see what we do with that team and hopefully get these boys going with guys I don't know lots of thought here in this episode because we are bouncing all around doing well doing bad doing okay the goaltending really I'd like to blame but three nothing RIT like for gold losses are my concerns goaltending so go up to the Florida game and we'll try and get up to the trade deadline in this one edit scouting assignment will go over to Russia Scout defenseman for five weeks see what we can get there was only 25 them should be able to scale pretty well they're against colorado four-nothing win all right big victory right there against Tampa Bay another one and we get a 4-3 shootout loss it's point I'll take point against LA big division game right here come on boys Greg pattern on waivers minor top to defenseman yet will decline that and against LA a 4-2 loss that's unfortunate Anaheim San Jose seven six three one and then against Florida and now it remains 25 24 and 5 on the season 55 points now they ain't going to find us in any division spot as we are four points back of a playoff spot still Connor McDavid 57 points 54 games played kind of McDavid looking for that 90 point season dry saddle 46 points Newton Hopkins 43 Larkin 42 okay so Larkins really turned the corner here getting it done for us you should going up in stats right away he resolved in swearing it's up to an 88 and then you got 39 for strong 32 for cammalleri who is just blitzing away getting it done top Baum 27 friends Nielson 26 Coolio v22 and that's the stage you of 17 kichul s still not - came to having a struggle go but everybody else starting to put up points bare like to see him do better like see him do better but he's got a growing to his role lots for sure ala Montoya this is where it's been is the backup role is really struggled for us all of a sudden someone toyou was doing really good and you see cam Talbot 263 goals against average we are fine with cam Talbot net up thank captain Talbot doing his hang 57 points for Connor McDavid and have one toy a struggling need morrow to both those two Connor mcDavid's really got to get it going cancel and we'll go calendar and get this underway we'll get towards the trade deadline here we'll go up to the Anaheim game and that's where we'll close out this episode see how we do against Florida three to shoot applause and Vegas 2-1 loss again in another division loss and we at least get the victory there are two back-to-back victories come on Boston give us that victory Jordan Staal for the second and fourth rounder no still not giving up - Jordan Staal don't think so or giving up my second round and pardon me dr. install for three overtime loss and then another pottery loss man we're just beating ourselves to death here with these ot loss it's got to be get in those points we're still above 500 but now it's the trade deadline and we have decisions to make boys we got to figure out what we're gonna do to get into the playoffs we're only three games back mind you about solid playoff spot Connor McDavid doing this thing in 61 games played 61 points don't lark and doing it but we just don't have any other goal scorers other than McDavid really dry settle 16 in sight nobody doing another and camel hairy and dry Seidel like I mean yeah sure we've spread around the goal scoring bud it's been rather brutal Ethan Baron old points like this team is a mystery to me barn above boys show you the goaltending one more time and see if we need to make a move get rid of cam tile with 263 914 now Montoya turn in the corner I don't think we do guys this stall on the TV I'm Tyson thank you for tuning into the Oilers franchise mode let me know in the comments section below what your thoughts are and I will catch guys is that next one
