RNH and Yakupov should play on the same line for a few more games

Morning skate lines: Hall-RNH-Eberle, Yakupov-Gagner-Hemsky, Hartikainen-Belanger-Paajarvi, Eager-Smyth-Petrell. VandeVelde not here yet.
Sub Vandy for Smyth and I really like the look of those lines. Keep Whitney the **** out of the lineup as well and IMO we are in a good position to win tonight's game. I'm going to say that the 1st line FINALLY has a breakout game tonight.

I know that some people aren't big on playing Paajarvi on the PP, but IMO he can be very good on the point. I'd like to see him working the onetime pass to Nail.

Please god, just make top line know they are playing against NHL Dmen and they should just dump the puck if the 2-1 or 3-2 cannot form....

@Oilersfan11"Center Eric Belanger (toe) could make his return"

To Edmonton ice?

He played against Columbus.

If Shawn freaking Horcoff gets 1st line pp time then there should be no player on the roster that gets criticized for it.

Not that you'll ever give him credit but he was quite good at going to the front of the net. Something Ryan Smyth should learn.

Anyway, is 25 shots for and against too much to ask this game?

How did Horcoff go from kind of "meh" he will be back after a game to just being gone? Shouldn't be surprised it happens with almost all of our injuries.

At least Shawn Freakin Horcoff can win a faceoff, deflect a puck, and can screen a goalie.

He was out with the neck issue and came back only to have a knuckle broken.

I have to agree, we all wanted it and I was wondering if they would sit Smyth or give him a chance to redeem himself. Either way be nice to see if Smyth can rebound.

Because he broke a knuckle on his first game back. Out long term.

I think they're both going to have to be moved if they can't find their way back into the lineup. It'll be nearly impossible for Smyth when Jones and Horcoff are back, right now his best bet is probably to beat out Petrell if Hartikainen keeps up his strong board play and Paajarvi continues killing penalties effectively.

I hope he does. I don't really like Smyth but I think he's an important guy. Still it's nice to see accountability. If not for Gagner's and MPS's heroics last game we're likely looking at a six game losing streak.

Well done Krueger. Accountability is the word of the day.

Yes! We might have a good shot of winning this game without Smyth and Whitney's 2 penalties/game
