Unless Nurse knocked him out with one punch
Nurse is strong but I think Drai can handle a punch.
Are we seriously still talking about this?
They didn't fight eachother ffs
Absolutely. Teammates fight all the time and I honestly don't think it's always a bad thing. It doesn't really matter how it happened. I just thought it was handled strangely considering the level of speculation swirling around. I mean, if a team can report that one of their players injured his back eating breakfast, you'd think they would be able to say; "yeah, he banged his head away from the rink, next".
Sadly this year sucked so bad that this is the garbage I find interesting.
The long crazy summer here.
Its despicable that this groundless rumor continues to get spawned here.
Somebody with nothing better to do makes up a story last year and some people eat it up ever since.
I also find it interesting how absolutely unfounded gossip is completely fine on this board regarding select players, but would be considered entirely offensive and out of line if it was about some other players.
This unsubstantiated rumor slanders two players. Why it it being allowed, perpetrated and perpetuated here?
because it happened and its over they are fine now
It's because More is expected out of one of the highest paid players in the league who struggled to start the season.
What are you on about? Take a break and relax. It's a slow summer.
What I find odd in the whole thing is Gregor is ripping on people about this story for most of the year. So why not report what actually happened a long time ago? Why now is he saying LD slipped?
Then again if I were LD I'd be begging the media and Kia/Darnell to make up a story, because **** he now seems like an idiot.
Like when Moreau broke his ankle shooting hoops. Please just lie next time.
I think he's irritated that some nine months later, people are still spreading these lies.
I think it's pretty obvious what happened at this point.
The whole room hated McDavid because he was so arrogant about how awesome his new counter tops were. Drai obviously disagreed and decided to take matters into his own hands. It turns out the counter tops were as awesome as McDavid kept saying though, so Drai came out on the losing end.
Drai, in his embarrassment over losing a fight to a counter top, decided to start a rumour that it was in fact Nurse who hit him(which Nurse agreed to since he also hated McDavid) to save face.
This upset McDavid, so he leaked the actual story to Gregor in hopes to get a shout out for his awesome new counter tops.
Going to need a source.
My cousin's ex-wife's dog-walker's brother's friend works at the Home Hardware where McDavid got the counter tops.
So people should make up the stuff about valued players on the team just because they don't like the contract or something?
I'll be clear here too. If any of these rumors were about somebody like Nuge there'd be clean ups on the aisles every day.
Last I checked made up **** about players was not supposed to be OK on this board or on the entire forum. Theres even been rules about it. Why does all this stand in relation to Nurse or Draisaitl?
The rumor that one player punched another and caused a serious concussion is slanderous. Its nothing short of that.
I remember when the black eye and concussion was caused by Trouba. Now that was slander
Draisaitl just had a house built in Edmonton. I did some work there. He had marble countertops which was concerning. True story.
I want to see Draisaitl + Puljujarvi as a duo next season. Stick it out until they click. I think they'll turn out to be a good match.
I was guilty about repeating the punch rumor, but this is what happened. Somebody here must know too. He slipped down a flight of stairs at a teammates house who no longer plays for the Oilers. He was drunk.
I want to see Draisaitl and Yamamoto as as a duo. I think they would be great together.
I want to see him produce away from McDavid. He needs be completely weened from that tit.
Last year his numbers were decent but he didn't pass the eye test most games. I suspect his point totals are more a reflection of his time spent with McDavid.
I don't know what happend with him and Nurse. I don't really believe the rumors.
But I do believe something happen'd with this team. There must be a reason they looked god awful so often last year.
I can't think of a player other than McDavid that played a complete quality year of hockey in my eyes.
Nurse had a great first half then fell off hard in the second half.
Leon like i said. Put up points but you just didn't feel like he was much of an impact in the games.
RNH was doing great but got hurt.
The rest don't even come close.. The whole rest of the team sucked ass imo.
You are right. It's a pretty serious attempt at slandering Nurse's character and completely unacceptable.
Their top 3 Dmen were either on the IR or shouldn't have been playing because of injury for a large portion of the season. Combine that with a goalie who was playing at well below league average quality for most of the season. That's your answer.
This being exactly my read on it.
Looks like LD's gonna need to buy some https://www.toysrus.com/products/edge-and-corner-guards.jsp
I'll buy some and if he ever gets a hat trick at a game that I'm attending I'll toss them for him.
