Yakupov on the top line vs a very good Chi team would be scary in a bad way.

Gagner was having a pretty slow year before his 8 point game last season.

I expect at least 12 points tonight with how he's been playing this season.

Yeah, I'd just tell him to stay in the neutral zone and wait for a breakaway pass. Not like he knows what the hell he's doing in the D-zone anyway. Let him be free.

So...PRV on the top line then?

I think I want to change my prediction. **** me...

No...no they'll still hold it together, even with a blackhole of offense on the LW on one of the top lines.

Yakupov hasn't shown to be reliable enough 5v5 so I'm not surprised at all he's being sheltered down in the lineup. I'd probably do the same thing. He can play on the 4th line and get time on the PP. If it looks like he might be going, or if the Oil need to take the chance late in the game to tie it up then you might see him move up to the top 2 lines.

I'm guessing Smyth on the top line. Just a guess, of course.

Keep in mind the first tweet was that Kreuger is using two pairs. Gagner-Hemsky and RNH-Eberle, everything else will change as the game goes on.

Yak goes out and proves he is willing to play smarter, he'll move up the lineup.

I went with the guess of:

Smyth-RNH-Eberle
Eager-Gagner-Hemsky
Jones-Belanger-Paajarvi
Yakupov-VdV-Petrell

As much as I'd like to have a "definitive" starter in Dubnyk, his fundamentals are so flawed, he'll revert back to the mediocre Dubnyk in no time. At least Khabibulin has been playing well enough to keep the team in it.

I honestly don't know if that would make me feel any better or not. Wow, without Hall the LW depth is pretty nasty.

No worries, the right side will carry us to victory tonight. Eberle and Jones will score 2 goals each.

Bulin in net and Yakupov slumming it with the 4th liners.

What the f am I missing here? Why is this happening?

Well it is his former team again, so there is that as well.

This is what Neilson said this morning on his show was that SMyth would start the game again on the top line or maybe it was when Rishaug came on but either way it was on his show.

That's why I was confused when I came here and people were saying Yakupov was playing on the top line.

Are either Neilson or Rishaug in Chicago? Seems odd that they'd know before the morning skate what Kreuger is going to do. The guy can have a full practice on game day and it doesn't neccasarily mean those will be the lines.

Cannot jump the gun with Kreuger.

Dubnyk played pretty solid in his last game against the Wild. I just don't like this for that fact that Dubnyk will now be sitting for like a week.

Yeah I'd like to see them go back to Dubnyk but it's not a big deal there will be tons of games here in a very short time so he will still play lots.
