Game 1 vs AVS

Team: 2022-23 Edmonton Oilers
Team Explanation
L1- assuming drai is still too hurt to play C we keep the line that sent us to the WCF together
L2- Kane vs nichuskin should be manageable RNH vs Kadri would be fun to watch and yamo played well against rantanen this year and gets under his skin
L3- Mcleod and JP had some very impressive defensive analytics vs the Flames and I think they both could handle burakovsky and compher well, I think holloway could add that little offensive play and boost they need and be something special although he is unproven I understand why many would be skeptical to play him in the top 9 or at all
L4- this line should not be to as unreliable as it was vs the flames with archibald and kassian sitting in the presser, Archibald was 0-5 on GF and GA against the flames and was a huge liability, shore has played well under Woodcroft in the regular season and Ryan is a solid bottom 6 player and foegele>kassian>archibald or you could play Malone it doesn't really matter

D1- has been solid for us all year so no changes, Hopefully nurse steps up his play and shuts Mac and Landeskog down or slows them down at least
D2- swapping parings around because I'm scared of the thought of Mac vs keith and Kulak is a very good skater and Hopefully barrie gets up to play against his good friends in Denver
D3- I hate to put bouch on the bottom pair but I don't want to split Kulak from barrie because they compliment each others game so well and keith just does not have the foot speed to play against the AVS

G- lets hope Smith doesn't just throw any leads we get away and I think we could have a chance to beat kempuer and the AVS

It’ll be an interesting series. Give EDM an edge top line vs top line, 2nd line is a wash probably an x-factor could clearly come from either team here, bottom 6 gotta give the edge to COL more pieces, more production. D, biggest disparity in the series with a clear and significant advantage to COL. Goalie, at the start of the playoffs I would have said clear advantage COL, Smith has been good imo, and Kuemper seems to be struggling a bit since getting a stick in the eye in the first round. Obviously who plays better will have a significant impact on the series.
