Sharks are due for a loss. I expect a high scoring game and Nuge will get his first.

Won't happen but that's what I'd like to see.
Harti on the first line? no......yakupov needs north/south players (read: not hemsky) on his line, but not at the cost of changing the dynamic of the entire forward corps. I would rather move hemmer to the left wing if were going to start experimenting, he never plays his position anyways.

Hall RNH Yak
Hemsky Gags Eberle
Smyth Horc Petrell
Harti Belanger MPS


And if you're going to exchange all your scrabble tiles, I have no problem putting Harti/mps over Smyth/petrell on the 3rd and maybe keeping Yakupov and Gags together on the 1st.

Hall Gags Yak
Hemky RNH Ebs
Harti Horc Petrell/MPS
Smyth Belanger MPS/Petrell

One of the biggest complaints I had last year was the constant line juggling, so I'm perfectly happy keeping things status quo until there are some trades/acquisitions made.

Didn't we end the caps winning streak last season somewhere around 7 games.

Yes. And the game ended with everyone cheering KHABI KHABI KHABI,
I don't see this happening again.

Staples just re-tweeted Willis' blog about Horcoff and Petrell being banged up but there's still no indication that the Oilers have re-called anybody.

Nuge - Eberle
Gagner - Hemsky
Hartikainen - Paajarvi

Only guys that should not be broken up.

If you want to try something new switch Yak and Hall.

The oilers media availability will be in a half hour then we'll know what's happening with lineups and injuries.

Who are we kidding, if Yakapov scored and started doing the "shpoopi" dance like on Family Guy, I would totally be singing along.

So, if Horcoff's out, and we safely assume Smyth - Belanger - Petrell as the third line, does Lander get called up to fill out the Nordic line? Or does first call go to VandeVelde who must be the next in line on the center depth chart (based on training camp recall).

We should know shortly...

Stauffer said that Petrell's in bad shape too.

I think Harski would be a good fit on the first line. He is good on the forecheck and is big and gritty, I don't see how it's a ridiculous suggestion to try him there. As for changing the dynamic of the forwards, I don't see it as a big change when pairs on the three top lines are staying the same. The good thing about line changes are that if it doesn't work out you can always change 'em back.

Can we assume it's probably too late for anyone to get in from OKC? Do we not just see Smyth to center? Dress Hordi and be done with?

OKC is what like a 2 hour flight tops to San Jose? I guess the issue would be if there is actually a flight getting there in time. If we really need the bodies, we could grab a couple of guys from Stockton.

@EdmontonOilers: Coach Krueger announces the #Oilers have called up Anton Lander since Shawn Horcoff (sore neck) is out for tonight's game
@EdmontonOilers: In order to make room on the #Oilers roster with Lander coming up, fellow Swede Magnus Paajarvi has been sent down to the #OKCBarons
@EdmontonOilers: Coach Krueger says tonight's starting goalie against the #SJSharks will be determined closer to game time
@EdmontonOilers: #Oilers defensive pairings will also be a game-time decision as all seven blueliners will take warmup tonight at the Shark Tank

Same thing. We had the issue last year where we ended up getting guys that were on route to Alaska that were in Seattle on layover.

I hope it really is just a "sore neck".

I assume Lander wouldn't be playing tonight?

No officials word from Ralph Krueger on starting goalie. Coach says goalie knows but doesn't mean media/public will know until game time

Who cares? I mean you are the Sharks is there a disadvantage to who you prepare for? One guy hasn't played in a months the other you lit up the other night. Not like you are going to watch 6 hours of goalie footage from now until game time.

Edmonton will warm up 7 defenceman and might for with 7. Another game time decision. Mark Fistric may play says Ralph Krueger.
Dammit Krueger, why can't it be "Potter may play"

So with Maggie heading down I guess that means we either slot in 7 defenseman or Hordichuk gets to wander around the ice for 45 seconds tonight.
