Their second line yesterday was a joke.

Raymond-Ebbett-Kassian.

Expect some changes for tonight, might be a bit tougher to play against then yesterday. That being said, without Kesler (who I've always felt is their true MVP), that team is a shade of itself

Get it done tonight fellas. No more excuses. Reward the faithful and long suffering amongst us with a compelling reason to watch and care this season!!!

I suspect Schneider will get the chance to rebound, and there is no doubt the Canucks will bring it after the poor showing last night. Better be ready.

Who is going to bring the rough stuff from Vancouver? Bieksa? Weise? It's not like this Canucks team is exactly built to run anyone through the boards.

Yesterday was an awesome day of hockey. Gamecenter is going to be the best purchase i've ever made. I feel like a kid during christmas right now. I dreamed about the oilers last night and woke up in a great mood. I missed NHL hockey so much.

Let's do it Oil.

Hey to all GDT makers, whether veteran or apprentice, looking to pass the torch here.

My current schedule and being out east makes it difficult to put GDTs up on the weekdays. If there isn't one when I get home around 1pm MT I'll throw one together, but we're HFOil and not having a GDT up within moments after midnight is unheard of.

We've stickied Rin's GDT Template up top but for the lazy... [CLICK HERE]

UPDATE: Fourth line is Eager - Belanger - Petrell. Hordichuk and Paajarvi scratched.

Waiting to see a tweet for defense... interesting to note that they have Hemsky on the LW. Clerical error?

Uhh why would you say that? I can't imagine they would randomly switch it up like that.

Oilers twitter just tweeted it and Tencer pointed it out. Possible clerical error.

This will be a bit of a statement game.

Gotta figure last night was the worst possible result for the Oilers tonight.

I have noticed that they have been putting hemsky at left wing all week. Even though in practice yak was left wing all week.

Please, don't ventilate us tonight. If schneider plays, please don't break him.
I just have this bad feeling that you guys are going to do exactly that. If schneids has two bad games in a row to start the season, our media and fans are going to explode.

This is very true. The Sedins are the consistent robots that don't seem to elevate their game to the next level during the playoffs, but Kesler is the engine that this team runs on. We need him healthy and in 10-11 form or we are going nowhere in the playoffs.

This is exactly how i'm envisioning this game going down today. Schneider gets chased from the net, then Luongo gets chased as well. Schneider finishes the game in shame in front of all the remaining Oilers fans in the building. I laugh myself to sleep.

They can all throw big hits, that doesn't change regardless of who is in the lineup. Mark Fistric on the 3rd pairing or Hordichuk on the 4th line isn't going to prevent Alex Edler or Lapierre from trying to land some hits on our team.

By the way, I want Fistric in the lineup tonight because Corey Potter isn't NHL player material. But not because of a lack of toughness. Vancouver isn't going to goon it up.

Free urinal cakes at the game. And they spared us the "Thank You Fans" drivel.

I have a bad feeling about this game. Some are predicting 6 goals by the Oilers tonight? I just hope Hemsky and Whitney can make it through the entire game.

Hopefully the Oilers light up the Nucks tonight but in my eyes this team is just two rookies different than last year.

When you look at the lineup, Edmonton should win if they are on their game.

Vancouver uses their D a lot with point shots because they don't have much upfront besides the first line.

I can see Vancouver rebounding and playing really hard today. They are a team you have to be up 2 goals on or so and they seem to check out.

We wll win 4-2 taylor with a hatty! Our forward group is superior the nuck except the twinsisters who hasnt played hockey due the lockout. The only thing who can stop a oiler win is a defence meltdown. Cant wait for the game to start (3 in the night here). My wife has asked whats wrong with me all day. Told my work that i coming to work after lunch,(told them that im taking my daughter to the dentist).
HOPES to find a good stream!

Vancouver has a really deep set of defencemen (I'd love to bring in Ballard even though he's still struggling a bit) but their forwards look fairly weak. Beyond the first line, there really isn't much all that scary. They kind of remind me of Calgary in that they have a lot of tweener forwards (ie. Higgins) but not a lot of true top line talent.

It will be interesting to see if our top end forwards can beat their defencemen.
