Torres-York-Dvorak
Moreau-Reasoner-Pisani
Laraque-Sarno-Smyth
Salmelainen-Horcoff-Chimera

Not sure if there are many teams that lineup would beat a decent percentage of the time.
Really they didn't play great and they didn't play terrible. It seemed like they were devoid of all emotion. They needed a spark, Jason Smith tried with a couple of good hits but no one really stood out.

A few players played decent but no one was spectaculor. I think even with this lineup they could have played better but I wasn't terribly angry after the loss because I thought that it wasn't a terrible game and Salo let in the goal that IMO killed them.

Don't get me wrong I am not happy with the loss but it may have been a different hockey game if the Oilers get some breaks around the net and Salo doesn't daydream in the nets.
