nice twist!
Great...and how much do you wanna bet Yakupov gets a hattrick and a million threads on the main boards get created about how our window is closed and the Oilers are the best thing since sliced bread.

If you want to watch ill prepared young players being shoe horned into roles above their heads, then the Oilers are the team for you. The Canucks are competing for a Cup, not running a farm team.

AV's not perfect by any means, but this is the one area that I feel he is beyond reproach.
I'm also a bit surprised that people think that AV will automatically choose Ebbett over Schroeder. Or that Kassian will not get the playing time he deservers.

AV praised Schroeder a good amount after last year's preseason. Just because he hasn't made the team yet doesn't mean that AV has anything against him. If anything, knowing AV's preference for hard-working players that are committed in all three zones, Schroeder will quickly become one of his favourites (if he shows he's got what it takes to be at this level).

Or we win 6-1. The twins get 4 points each and Justin Shultz breaks his leg.

Ha...Someone change the GDT title!! Looks like it's not the Ducks, but the Oil at Rogers Arena opening night...

Ryan Rishaug ‏@TSNRyanRishaug

Looks like Oilers will open in Vancouver then return home for a pair of games.

Yes, I'm a spiteful person.

"CAL-EDM opener off. Sounds like HNIC wanted Vancouver vs anybody. Now neither Calgary or Edmonton will play til Sunday. Not each other. "

Of course they would. Who in their right mind would want to watch both of those two hack teams in one game?

Why is this Vancouver vs Edmonton on Jan 19? I thought the rumour was that it would be Jan 20 for these two teams, and Van vs Ana on the 19th?

Can't believe we are going to watch hockey in 7 days! It's been so long. 9 months is too long to wait, it's like hockey was pregnant and we are going to get a nice, healthy baby delivered to us by the owners and players.

To be fair, the Oilers SHOULD be fun to watch this year.

The flames on the other hand...

Hasn't sunk in for me so I'm not even excited yet.

True. Let's hope they're exciting and still crappy. With new lottery system hopefully they don't get 1st overall again.

Oh, and I hope Schultz skates up the ice with his head down. I do miss having Torres though.

Actually, not bad.

Change the thread title. We play the Ducks on the 19th for our home opener and again on the 20th vs Edmonton. Both are home games.

Now you know how Canucks fans feel about having the Sedins. Soon the kids in Edmonton will be the ones HF attacks constantly, and I cannot wait.
