I'm not worried either. I just want these guys to stay healthy. I'm pretty sure that they just didn't start sucking all of a sudden and they will be fine once the season starts in Dec.

Just for fun, and to hopefully break the streak, predict who will score the next Barons goal.

Fedun - 9:15 (1st period)

I was pretty pumped to see the game on sportsnet after our last two games I'm going to prepare for disappointment if this tema plans of pulling it together tonight would be a good game to start

Alex Plante - 12 seconds into the 1st period - Eberle-esque forehand/backhand deke on breakaway.

You're right. We'll just have to accept these guys are losers. Like its quite clear these three players have proved so much at th NHL level that they have the green light to put no effort in the AHL. personally, I'd like to see them not called up if/when the lockout is lifted this season. If you put forward a putrid effort, you shouldn't be awarded.

Maybe Taylor Hall would be more suited for badminton.

With that mentally anyone that gets injured in hockey should play badminton.
I would just rather him die in an NHL game than an AHL game.

Albany Devils are dead last in the league.

Adam Henrique:
GP:9 G:0 A:3 Pts:3

Larsson:
GP:9 G:0 A:4 Pts:4


Larsson has no goals 4 Assists in 9 games.

Why the hell are we splitting up RNH, Hall, and Eberle? Are we trying to lose? Don't we want to get the most out of them?

Can anyone explain a good reason for this to me?

I would have hoped that the addition of Eberle, Hall, & RNH would make the Barons a better team, not worse. These guys should be setting a good example for potential future Oilers. If they're not going to bring their "A" game, then the team would be better served dressing players that will.

I'd say Henrique is more surprising. I don't expect Larsson to put up big numbers.

Then maybe they should have told the Oilers that they want to try playing overseas.
