Oilers vs. Avs. Saturday February 16th.

So may be this thread could be used to talk about the next game and things like practice and lines leading up to it.

This way you guys wouldn't have to use the PGT

Sounds like Schultz was injured in some capacity but still practicing, coaches decided to shut him down for the day.

Lines I hope to see:

Hall-RNH Fistric (gotta get some grit on that line)
Nick Schultz-Hall- Eberle (gotta try Hall at centre)
Hemsky - Justin Schultz- Yakupov - Hartkianen (gotta get some scoring from the third line)
Petrell - Gagnerr - Belanger (Gotta win some draws)

Smid-Paajarvi (gotta play paajarvi on D)
Petry - Hall (gotta try Hall on D also)
Smid - Dubnyk (gotta have a big guy pair and Duby is good at shutting it down)

Wouldn't mind Yak sitting a game.

It's not unusual to have a rookie watch a few games from the PB.

The Oilers are losing because they aren't scoring goals. Sitting the top goal scorer might not be the best idea right now.

Yeah, but if he's playing on a line with Smyth and Belanger, there's not a strong likelihood he's going to score anyway.

That sounds like a good argument for not putting the team's top goal scorer on a line with Smyth and Belanger.

Asked Nick Schultz about kevlar (and other protective) socks. Says Eager wears them. Lots of good comments. Check out The Team Today later.

I've said this for a while now, but until the Oiler kids can learn to score 5 on 5 and play defense they aren't going to do a whole lot.

Times will look really bad when the PP scoring dries up too. Fact is these are the growing pains of a young team.

Aside from getting some better fitting vets I'm not sure what this team can really do but be patient and keep developing.

It's probably a good idea to wear them if they are available and feel just like the other socks.

However this is just a freak accidnet no different than the Hall face stomp last year(except Hall wasn't lost for entire season). However to me it's like wearing a visor, if the protection is there you might as well use it.

I never thought about "anti-cut" socks till now.

I don't mind Yak on the third line so much. It lets him play RW for one thing, it gets him away from the other teams top 4 D. The only qualm I have is somebody needs to be able to get the puck to him. That and Belanger won't celebrate with him.

Like the Fedun injury (which no one cares about at the moment) it's something that comes up once or twice a year. Either some gets hurt like Karlsson or sliced on the wrist and it's brought up about why teams don't make them mandatory.

Speaking of which, I don't understand why the AHL stopped with the hybrid icing rule.

This is Chris VandeVelde wearing the kevlar sock. He switched after he got cut on the wrist. Not many guys wear them.

I hate visors, got stick got in one once.

With that being said, sock seems to be something that wouldn't be that bad to wear.

Agreed. If he's not in the top 6, let him watch a game from the press box. It wouldn't do him any harm in terms of his overall development.

I'd almost go with the same lineup against the Avs that we had against the Stars. It's not like we were outplayed. We played 2 solid periods and the wheels feel off early in the 3rd.

I guess the problem is sitting Smyth who assumes he's in for Saturday's game.
