If Grebeshkov cannot play due to immigration issues, Trotz has indicated that Franson will be slotted into the lineup...
I'll take those forward lines. Smithson with Legwand and Ward makes me cringe (almost as much as the idea of calling it our second line), but the lines are balanced on the whole and we could probably roll them tonight.

I also don't approve of Rinne getting the start. Ellis played lights-out for us before the break, and Rinne gave up four goals to New Jersey. This back-and-forth business can only go on for so long. At some point, you have to pick a goalie and start him for four or five games in a row, or he won't get any kind of rhythm going.

I fully expect a loss tonight. Most of the guys will likely be a bit rusty after two weeks of no actual games to play, so they'll have to get their timing back.
