On top of that, crappy GDTs that are posted early will draw even more scorn.

If we lose tomorrow, don't create another GDT for awhile. Heh.
He posted the GDT for the Stars game and we got creamed. Delete this!!!

Just a heads-up: Backstrom is back with the team and will be available for the game. My gut is that he'll get the start, since he was scheduled for Wednesday's game but had to tend to a personal matter, but they haven't announced anything yet.

I can think of 4 losses this season where an uninspiring GDT has accompanied.

Maybe there should be designated (and creative) HFers who are in charge of GDTing.

I made a GDT once... It was ok. They used the song I posted at the next home game I was at, I felt like I had a part even tho it's probably unlikely, haha. We also won. I could make a pretty cool one if I put some effort into it.

Gross GDT

I demand this video be added to the OP. It's epic.

Why is Jones being demoted to the 4th line.....what has eager done to deserve 3rd line time. Makes no sense imo

i would assume that its to get paajarvi and lander more quality linemates, and to get eager out there with some more ice time against clutterbuck

The GDT you saw posted was the Hurricanes. I know this because the Jets don't have theirs up tonight.

Last time I checked Carolina was in the Eastern timezone.

So what time is this game airing? i am not talking about hockey central, i am talking about the actual drop of the puck.

Its not showing up on sportsnet.ca as far as the tv schedule is concerned, and it has changed times on my digital box a few times. 1pm Mountain time?

Petrell's still out? Why have him in the PB when he hits the most out of everyone in the bottom 6?... Oh well, at least having Whitney back should be a huge boost for Hall and Hemsky.

Yeah, I don't know what Eager has done to get a roster spot over Petrell...or a spot on the 3rd line.

I hope I can wake up in time. I haven't watched an Oiler hockey game since the Montreal game. That's over two weeks of games! haha. Couldn't get a hockey feed down in the Dominican. I was sad to miss the Blackhawks game for sure.

I'd rather have Petrell is as well but it probably has something to do with Eager being on a 3 year contract.

Relax. It's just a line number. I am actually happy to see Jones with Lander and PRV and I think we'll see this line getting more ice time than the Eager/Belanger/Gagner anyway so who cares if they are called 4th or not... Or Renney will realize that Eager doesn't work on the 3rd and switch. Easy as that

I'd love for that to happen, but I'm not confident it will.

Hopefully Lander has a really good night on the face-off dot. That would help.

Lander line is the 4th line.

By the way forward lines are Smyth-RNH-Eberle,Hall-Horcoff-Hemsky,Jones-Belanger-Gagner,Eager-Lander-Paajarvi

You are probably right about that, I kind of lost track of why Belanger gets more ice time (FO). I blame the die hard flu I caught a couple of days ago.

Thanks, makes more sense I suppose. Although I would still like to see what the Swedes could do together with Jones but I would not like to see Eager on the 3rd so I guess it won't happen unless they double shift Jones.

Will have to miss this one due to work. I'm guessing a loss tonight and a win tomorrow.
