Tencer tweets that he's good to go.

Lander coming out tomorrow...

Smyth - Gagner - Eberle
Hall - Horcoff - Hemsky
Paajarvi - RNH - Eager
Jones/Hordichuk - Belanger - Petrell

That's how I'd run them... guess we'll see.

Hall-Gagner-Hemsky
MPS-RNH-Eberle
Smyth-Horcoff-Jones
Eager-Belanger-Hordichuk

That's what I'd do. No more Horcoff in the top six. Smyth has been good with 14 and 93 but I want MPS to get a sustained look in an offensive role.

Lander should get some time with Nelson in OKC. Then when the Oilers season is done he should go down for the playoffs if he hasn't stayed down there the rest of the year.

Great to hear MPS is ok.

Love the idea of putting Eager with RNH and him too. Give the kid some protection out there, and also gives Eager a more important role. I suspect RNH will get a fair share of pp time still.

Lander should get sent down if he's not going to play.

Gregor just tweeted that Lander will come out of line-up for tomorrow as Maggie is good to go as well.

why dont you guys notice that eberle+RNH is the best combo on the team. and that RNH+Hemsky is really meh.

Hall-Gagner-Hemsky
prv(or whoever, not horcoff)-RNH-Eberle
x-horcoff-x
x-belanger-x

bolded is the part that the choaches will definitely screw up.

MPS has earned his shot to be in the top 6 for a couple games with a full top 6 six lineup. He isn't doing his pansy ass skate to the outside and pass the puck off or throw a weak shot at the goal anymore and he'd be great on the cycle with Eberle and Nuge.

Edit: but.......knowing our coaching staff he'll be planted on that third line probably.

Problem is Gagner looks lost without Eberle. I'm thinking Hall and RNH can carry Hemsky...haha.

If RNH is back, I'd go with these lines:

Hall - RNH - Hemsky
Smyth - Gagner - Eberle
Paajarvi - Horcoff - Eager
Jones - Belanger - Petrell

I think he'd have to play 10 games though down at OKC to be eligible for playoffs, no?

I like this! 3 scoring lines, but I think Jones draws back in somewhere.

We dont have to stack our top 6, you know. We could run 3 really good lines with grit and defensive play if we need to.

I say screw spreading around our offense. With playoffs out of the question now, our goal should be to get behind an RNH Calder trophy run. Lets load up our offense all on one line: Hall-RNH-Eberle. Our mission should be to get RNH as many points as possible to bring home our organization's first Calder trophy
