I want Duby to start because I know he'll want to redeem himself.
Smid and Petry likely feel the same way.
But with no Horcoff and no MPS, that's a big part of our defensive forwards gone. I doubt Horcoff will be ready to go by Saturday, and Colorado we are more likely to beat, I say save Bulin for the Avs if Duby is ready to go tonight.

So I'm guessing the bottom 6 will be something like...

Smyth - Belanger - Petrell
Hordichuk - Lander - Hartikainen

or

Smyth - Belanger - Hartikainen
Hordichuk - Lander - Peckham

or am I missing someone if Petrell can't go?

He'll do the Ovechkin "hotstick" only he will actually light it on fire and throw it into the stands. HF will reply with "I expected him to do something like that"

Seriously? Potter is playing again? So much for Spector saying they are just keeping the players "fresh".

I have no idea WTF Krueger sees in that slug.

They are trying to get Whitney going by keeping him on the side he's most comfortable with(LD).

Fistric is also a LD, and apparently is not comfortable playing the right side at all.

So Potter plays and Fistric sits.

And they didn't maybe consider this before they traded for Fistric?

Ughh.

It's odd then that Whitney playing with Fistric looked so much better than Whitney with Potter if Whitney doesn't feel comfortable on the other side.

Also if Potter is only in to keep Whitney happy, why is he seeing PK time, especially late in games?

The organization can spin this how they like, but Krueger obviously likes Potter more than Fistric.

Edit: My thought is that Potter looks better in practice because Fistric's strengths of rubbing guys out and clearing the crease aren't as evident.

No one said Fistric wasn't playing tonight they are going to warm up all 7 dmen and then decide, i think we will see Fistric in tonight.

I watched Kruegers pre game, he was being very secretive i think he knows which goalie he is going with and he knows which dmen will play i don't really understand the secrecy.

Got the impression when Stauffer was talking about it, that fistric's inability to play his off-side was a bit of a suprise.

Not really a huge deal though. Whitney has a high chance to be moved by the deadline(more name value than Potter), so Fistric probably be in a regular spot soon enough.

I don't think I can watch if Potter is playing. Last night was about all I can take and you want me to watch him play back to back?

Honestly this team has two of the most offensively dominant players in the league, i dont see how Potter can play an entire game against them and not be minus at least a couple goals. Phoenix is a weak team offensively and they gave Potter nightmares out there, I cant imagine how he will do against a team that knows what they're doing

Fistric played RD in Dallas a lot and when Tambellini did his press conference after the trade he said a big reason we liked Fistric is because he can play both sides. I'm not buying it.

What a waste of a draft pick.

Nah, he should do this to Joe if he scores. That should get a response from Cherry.

If Potter plays tonight I hope that his pairing gets scored on 4 times in a 5-4 Oilers win. Fistric should be playing over Whitney and Potter IMO. If we are so hell bent on playing Whitney on the left side then here's a ****ing idea for our head coach: Play Fistric with J. Schultz and play N. Schultz on the right side of Whitney. Problem solved, no more Potter.

He doesn't have to do a damn thing to get those dingbats riled up. Maybe he'll sneeze on the bench and we can have another thirty page thread about how selfish and classless he is.

Worse yet is that he's an UFA at years end and he's a guy that IMO is a perfect 3rd pairing guy for us, so getting dicked around like this might make him want to get out of Edmonton before he gets a chance to establish himself.
