Ferguson - Seems about right.
Semenov - 0:00...and counting.

For the forwards, the only one that sticks out IMO is Chimera...should be 3 to 4 minutes higher, though I think that was skewed a bit from last game where he saw ZERO ice in the 3rd period. Was he benched?

Looking at the NHL shift chart from that game, weird to see Torres (one of the few Oilers that game who had any scoring chances) only getting 2 shifts in the 3rd.
I think with Smith's injury troubles this year, they are really going to try and limit his minutes as much as possible... I would personally rather him for 82 games and 17 minutes, than 65 games and 22.
