I'm thinking Christensen will be scratched with Rupp in, but I guess we'll see shortly.

This just in: Tortorella scratches Richards for Rupp, will play Christensen instead. Lines will look like this:

Christensen-Christensen-Callahan
Anisimov-Stepan-Callahan
Rupp-Christensen-Stepan
Christensen-Callahan-Gaborik

On a serious note, would like to see:

Anisimov-Stepan-Gaborik
Hagelin-Richards-Callahan
Fedotenko-Boyle-Prust
Rupp-Dubinsky-Avery

This. But switch the 3rd and 4th lines.

Anisimov-Stepan-Gaborik
Hagelin-Richards-Callahan
Rupp-Dubinsky-Avery
Fedotenko-Boyle-Prust

Also, wouldn't be opposed to switching Rupp and Feds.

Torts says there is a reason why scratched forward not announced yet "but I'm not going to tell you"

AGrossRecord Andrew Gross
Torts says Rupp can play either center or wing so that leaves now plenty of candidates to be a healthy scratch tonight.

AGrossRecord Andrew Gross
Torts says Lundqvist sitting tonight has absolutely nothing to do with his left collarbone. Healthy, wanted to get Biron a game.

Id rather have Mitchell in over Boyle. Mitchell is quicker and a better skater.

Not necessarily, it may just mean Torts doesn't want to explain why the guy deserved to be benched, in his eyes.

Its the kind of thing leeches like Brooks try to feed on/spin to make him look bad.

I think it's more along the lines of someone we don't expect to be benched.

Could also mean that one of the forwards is banged up or under the weather, but will take the pregame skate and decide whether he can play then.

Still can't see anyone trading for Christensen. Maybe we'll tell him we're in whatever locker room the Coyotes are in and hope he just starts following Phoenix around. Christensen is so invisible that he could practice and play with the Coyotes for months before Don Maloney even realizes he's there.

You cant even trade away EC in NHL 12, turning salary caps off.

saw the dallas game as my first of the season. they owe me a better game where they're not shutout by some nub goal-tender. I say everyone contributes tonight because torts is threatening to withhold his christmas cookies he makes every year.

Then why would Torts even say anything? Stating that there's a reason for the scratch and then refusing to say what that reason is INVITES speculation and conspiracy from guys like Brooks. It allows them to come up with multiple possible narratives. If it's a simple matter of a guy getting a disciplinary benching, then it'd be best to just state it and be done with it.

Saying it like that makes me think it's either a trade (or more likely, a trade currently being negotiated) or an injury.
