Anton Lander Assigned to OKC [11/2/13]
 
Speculation for now, but he was made a late scratch in OKC tonight. Nelson didn't address it in the pre-game and none of the media down there know why.

He's likely on a plane.

EDIT: Confirmed.

Wasn't he made captain because Nelson wanted a guy that would be down there all year?

Well that would be silly for Nelson to think Lander would be down there all year.

Can't argue that. Weird though.

Omg, we're saved!

Traded for a backup

We only had 12 forwards before Pitlick got hurt

Lander for Scrivens :scared:

And somewhere in OKC, you can hear the teardrops of Linus Omark hit the ground like hail.

That might be the only case where you hear "Omark" and "hit" in the same sentence.

So looks like Omark will be the last forward on OKC... another dozen injuries and Omark may finally get his shot... just after they call up and play Bunz on the wing.

That was probably the plan, but with 9 forwards injured between the big club and OKC, they probably don't have much of a choice.

Oilers twitter confirms Anton Lander has been recalled.

What would kill me about that trade, is you just know that Lander would turn into an elite bottom 6C in Lala land.

I hope that he shows better than he did in the preseason. I was very unimpressed with him in the preseason especially with the 4th line center job up for grabs.

NAF 10-27-2013 11:03 AM

I'm a Lander fan, had him as my avatar for years, but he's a center and they needed to call up a winger. Omark is a winger who can play either wing and is the leading scorer on that team. If not for him there'd be no offence at all on that club. If Omark isn't given a chance now, then it's pretty clear he won't get a call up all year. That's pretty damn harsh.

That said, I do get the thinking. This team needs defensively responsible players, which Lander is. Hope we see him on the PK.

belair 10-27-2013 12:36 PM

:laugh: This podunk hockey team....

He's been the captain in OKC for six days.

I'm thinking he's on the big squad for the rest of the season to be honest. I'm not sure how many more games he's got until his waiver eligibility kicks in, but he's done a pretty good job of impressing his coaches when he's been here.

Hopefully he can just stay healthy though.

*knocks on wood*

AlowlyMcOilersfan 10-28-2013 02:18 PM

I love how he grinds on the fore-check.

Petro Points 10-28-2013 02:36 PM

Not a bad game last night.. took 30 shifts.. 3 hits.. 14:07TOI with some PK time.
1-3 on the draw. no points - even on the night.

Eakins pretty much rolled 3 lines and Lander was one of the top 9.

KlimasLoveChild 10-28-2013 03:00 PM

I liked Landers game yesterday for the most part. His defensive awareness and pk abilities are a much needed ingredient on this team. It looks like he may have figured things out a bit. He was noticeably grittier along the boards and threw a few solid hits. I guess you could say he has increased his "compete". Lets hope it wasn't a one time thing and he can keep it going.

He'll probably be in for at least one more game, barring a return from Smyth or Gagner.

edit: yep

I hope he does well with his leadership role in OKC. He plays a grittier game now, and I hope we get to see more of it down the road.
