The game featured the larger blue lines. Pretty interesting. I find it helped alot of the PP.

Anyways, I glad Rita was called up because he played a solid game. I'd like to see Salmaleinen come up to the big club as well.

One player I do think is over looked is Jamie Wright. THe guy's all over the place. He hits and plays with desire.

if wright plays with desire he deserves a shot up with the big club, maybe a callup from t.o. could inject a pulse into the parent club.

The larger blue lines were also in effect in the Moose game two days ago.

It proved a bit of help, which is good, but more needs to be done, whether actualling CALLING penalties or eliminating two-line passes, two things I'm in favour of. Valiquette was also good tonight, as was Wright (obviously, 1st star). It was a phsyical game. I admit, I was cheering for Hamilton, but Toronto played well, better than the other 2 games I've been too.

I presume it was televised?

Slats made a thread about it a little ways down the page. According to John Short, Rita was called up to Edmonton after the Minnesota game.


Rita wasn't out there much tonight against the Bulldogs was he? I suppose they didn't want to risk injury.

Wow...I didn't think that would ever happen. It will be nice to have a shooter in the lineup.

It seems he was taking a regular shift, going hard nto traffic. I was hoing we wasn't going to get hurt. Hopefully we'll see him on Friday.

Let me quote John Short "Jani Rita is to be called up after the respective Roadrunner and Oilers games tonight." And whoever he was talking to said something to the effect of "I hope he gets at least ten games with decent linemates."

As of right this moment no official announcement has been made, nor did I listen long enough to find out who he received his information from.

It wasn't speculation either because they also talked about how the Oilers will not have to send a player down to Toronto because there is an open spot on the roster.
