I lived in Calgary during their "Young Guns" era. Oiler fans at the time thought that it would last forever. It didn't.

Opening night?

Hall-Hopkins-Eberle
Yakupov-Gagner-Hemsky
Smyth-Horcoff-Hartikainen
Eager-Belanger-Pajaarvi

Smid-Petry
N.Schultz-J.Schultz
Whitney-Potter
Peckham

Dubnyk
Khabibulin

vs:

Glencross-Cammalleri-Iginla
Baertschi-Tanguay-Hudler
Horak-Backlund-Stempniak
Comeau-Stajan-Jackman

Bouwmeester-Butler
Giordano-Wideman
Brodie-Sarich
Smith

Kipprusof
Karlsson


Flames fans better hope that Kipper comes out of the gate on fire and Iginla hasn't lost a step. Edmonton's had a number of it's players playing together, and in mid-season form.

If Edmonton can shake the injury bug, they'll have a very good team, very soon. If you're Hartley, who do you send out when Hall-Hopkins-Eberle are out? Who when Yakupov-Gagner-Hemsky?

Should make for a good first game, and a good season series this year.
