I'm happy for the young guys getting the call, but a little scared to think about what the lineup might look like with all 3 in it.


Paajarvi - Cogliano - Eberle
Jones - O'Marra - Omark
Giroux - Fraser - Reddox
Jacques - VandeVelde - MacIntyre
good AHL team.
and you forgot about the perennial all star Jason Strudwick anchoring the defense!

By all means we should get blown out tonight.. but I can`t help but think we`re gonna win. There`s a lot of guys in the lineup with something to prove.

Not to mention lost of times play their 1st NHL game and they are amped up and really play well. That said I hope that we lose this game for our draft pick(s) positioning. Here's to hoping that the 3 kids come in and play hard and tough out there, we sure could use some of that out there.

Only counting players in the line-up, Cogliano will be the team's all time leading point scorer tonight, I think.

Moran will get called up when Eberle, and Cogliano go down with injuries. Give it a game or 2. Or at least when Eberle hits 42 points.




On the flip side, we are icing a lineup of players with everything to lose.

It might not be pretty, but I'd be shocked if we got anything less than 110% effort.

Probably won't even be close to being enough, but here's to hoping it'll be entertaining.

The Barons fans should be the ones crying. Just imagine what their line up looks like. They are only a couple points out of the playoffs with 12 games remaining.

They are actually playing for something and are right in the thick of things. That must be depressing.

Oh yeah and their top goalie got injured last night. Yikes.

Their forward lines will probably look something like this:

Arcobello-Moran-McDonald
Cornet-Kytnar-Stortini
Stewart-Collins-Ondrus
Gimblett-Marquardt-Lord

From the Barons' website: "Oklahoma City goaltender Martin Gerber, who stopped 35 of 36 Griffins shots in nearly 2 1/2 periods, left the game with 12:18 remaining when he was involved in a pileup with Grand Rapids' Cory Emmerton. Gerber was reportedly taken from the arena on a stretcher."

I nearly collapsed(not really)when I looked up Geber's stats on HDB, and noticed he played 41 games, because I thought the game where he got injured would be his 42nd, but apparently HDB updated their stats that night.

Whew.

A Griffins player was speeding in on a partial break. Richard Petiot pushed him in full flight right into Gerber. He hurt his neck (yes his big injury last season was a neck injury) and was stretchered to the hospital. Early word is not noticeable structural damage but they are sending him back to OKC I think to do more extensive tests.
