I didn't see a lot of the Barons this year. Perhaps the Oilers feel Lander has made strides in those areas and is ready for 4th line minutes.

It's starting to sound like MacT is going to sign Gagner and go into the season with the lineup we have. I guess we'll see if it's good enough to compete in a new tougher division.

Hall - Gagner - Yakupov
Perron - RNH - Eberle
Jones - Gordon - Hemsky
Brown - Lander - Joensuu
Smyth

Smid - Petry
Ference - Schultz
Belov - Schultz
Larsen, Potter

Dubnyk
Labarbera

To be honest, unless the kids all explode, I don't see that as a playoff team.
I agree Lander needs competition for the 4c spot other than Acton.

But reading your post made me think changing that 4c isn't going to make the difference from a playoff spot to a non-playoff spot.

Our playoff hopes and dreams next year are going to rely on those top two lines.

So we trade Gordon, who just got a 3 year deal from us AND we play Brown on the second line. But wait that's not all, Yak City gets demoted to the third line. This sir, is pure genius.

Does anyone agree with Oates, that being on your proper side helps with offensive touches? As a former d-man i understand the downside of a forward being on his open hand wrong side...as i had to run around and cover for their gaffes.

I always felt Yaks should be on that open hand side he is used to but after Ovech and Oates i do see it as making sense to use Yaks open handed on PP and proper wing 5 on 5.


There is no way in hell id ever put two wingers on their wrong sides together 5 on 5 on the same line. Thats a d-mans nightmare and we dont have good d.

I think he's saying Gordon is a scratch?

IMO MacT will only make another 1 or 2 FA signings, and if the Hemsky trade goes down, we will have that as well.

What I'd realistically like to see:

Hall-Nuge-Yak
Perron-Gagner-Eberle
Penner-Gordon-Hemsky*** (not going to guess a trade return for him)
Joenssuu/Smyth-Steckel-Jones
Brown/Lander

**Incase of top 6 injury, Raajala recalled
***If Hemsky is traded and a RW is not acquired in return, Jagr could be a good veteran signing.

Smid-Petry
Ference-Schultz
Schultz-Belov
Klefbom*-Larsen
Potter

*I feel that Klefbom will play his way into a permanent position, resulting in N.Schultz to most likely be traded.

Dubnyk
Labarbera
Bachman

Wouldnt mind trying to get Nick Spaling for the 4th line C spot. He just filed for arb. and NSH has great C depth, maybe a pick or prospect.

Hall Gagner Yakupov
Perron Nuge Eberle
Jones Gordon Moss
Eager/Joensuu Boyle Brown

Smid Petry
Ference J.Schultz
N.Schultz Belov/Klefbom

I still think Klef should play the year in OKC, but I won't be shocked if he makes the team.

That's about how I see the starting roster IF the season were to start without further changes to the team (thank God it doesn't so hopefully more roster changes can still be made).

Lander starts in the AHL as does Klefbom.

Possible opening night surprises on the roster (although doubtful)... Philip Larsen on defense and Ryan Hamilton up front.



edit...
Honestly I think I'd rather have the bottom 6 like this:

Eager-Gordon-Hemsky
Joensuu-Smyth-Jones

Remains to be seen what the hell actually works there because there's still so many question marks...

Can Eager find his mojo again and be a ****-disturbing integral part of the bottom 6?

Will Hemsky be traded for yesterdays newspaper and a cold cup of coffee.. or will he still be here playing in a non-ideal 3rd line role?

Is Joensuu ready for a full-time NHL role as a physical 4th line winger... and just how the hell do you say that name? Just when you think all the Finns and their weird names are gone and you are out... the Oilers get another and pull you back in.

Will Smyth skate so slowly that he actually travels back in time to last season where he can finish that clapper he started in that game last March... he's almost to the top of the upswing.

When it comes to Jones, will we be able to say "evidently fear is not a factor for Ryan", as he recovers fully and plays his ass off... harder than ever before?


Tune in and find out... as the Oil Drop turns...

Why do you have Ryan Smyth in the lineup let alone in the top 6?

Kulemin - Grabovski - Hemsky would be an insane 3rd line.

Too bad that would put us into cap hell.

Not to mention Grabovski would flip the **** out at Eakins

What about Jones-Gordon-Mueller for the third line?
