Most of those were with San Jose. You know, a good team.

He's not completely useless. He still gets his looks because he's very opportunistic and he finds those dead zones of the ice.

He had 2 goal and 1 assist in 3 games in Edmonton last year, with one of those goals being a game tying goal with 1 second left.

Go Oilers.

Fistric and Peckham? Well, I know one thing, I'll be watching. Can't say Im thrilled with all the changes and switching around on D this year. We aren't talented enough to just throw anybody out with anybody else and think it's going to be clear sailing. Although the biggest problem is a top four horse to count on.

Eberle has to start showing up. Mr. clutch has been MIA far too often this year. Dubnyk has to have a strong game. I hope the team has a lot more energy than last game. Not sure what went wrong but I didn't think our team had its skating legs.

Must win. Not for the team but for my confidence in this season. lol

'Brodin went to dinner last night with Oilers first-round pick Oscar Klefbom, who is in from Sweden. They are childhood friends and won gold together at world juniors.'

-Russo


Shultz went to dinner with some Wild personal too, Gilbert with some family in EDM.

Shall we all just skip the hockey game and have a banquet on ice?

Simply can't see a way we win this game. We've been playing like crap and Minnesota *always* causes us so many problems it's not even funny. Something like 3-1 for Minny is my guess.

I sure would like to be wrong, and have a couple goals from our bottom 6, but there is about a snowballs chance in hell of *that* happening.

They'll probably continue their stretch of stealing a game from the Oilers in the shootout.

Completely agreed. In fact I'm not even going to watch the game. We always lose to Minny and the games are always boring.

I'm calling Setoguchi and Heatley from the Wild telling stories about going out and having crazy evenings during 'ol san jose days'

I have to think that the Wild/Oilers matchup is the least "rivalry"-like out of any NW matchup.

QUOTE=spot;60162035]Until this team ices a more balanced attack, especially in our top 6 I don't think we will see enough offence. I think we need to get Eberle and Yakupov going.
I would like to see these lines:

Hall Gagner Hemsky
Eberle Hopkins Yakupov
PRV Belanger Harti
Smyth VV Eager
Petrell[/QUOTE]

My thoughts exactly, maybe this might work as well,

Hall-Nuge-Hemsky -- nobody has elite left and right d-men this speed kills

MPS-Gagner-Yakupov -- Yakupov needs Gagners leadership and they both need MPSs size,speed, and defensive mindset

Hartikainen-Belanger-Eberle -- Ebbs needs the puck to score and bellanger will give it to him, Ebbs cuts into lanes well and with Hartikainen paving the way he should see lots of holes in the defense

Smyth-VV-Eager -- Smyth needs to kickstart his goal scoring and cant manage it but with bigger stronger linemates he can be more of a passer and focus on that he is very underrated as a passer and VV has an excellent shot and he and Eager should be able to use their size to force their ways in to the shooting lanes.

I smell dump and chase hockey from Ralph tonight. Big mistake we need to stay offensively focused and use the transitions better from the middle with lateral support entering the o-zone utilising short give and gos incorporating an upspeed support man coming into the playaction late to finish plays at the net. It will be a boring game and low scoring I say 2-1 with all the scoring in the 1st period then final of 3-1 Wild with them scoring an empty netter after Ralph pulls the goalie with 3 mins on the clock, ha ha ha. We wont be able to generate second shots just like last game and for the same basic reasons, never mind everyone was watching last gm after our 56 shot explosion to see if we could repeat it and they all saw us shut down completely, we kind of exposed ourselves a little there.

When I think about the system Ralph is using I visualise the Emporers New Clothes for some reason

Looking forward to Ryan Jones being back in the lineup on Saturday. He gives us a scoring threat that we need on the bottom 2 lines.

As for tonight, play a smart game and as I mentioned early, we really need RNH and Eberle to start leading this team.

How does this VCash thang work? If I can find out how, and if it's easy, I'm willing to bet 300 VCASH on oilers winning.

Ralph does know the adjusted hybrid well and is showing it tonight, I hate the system but you gotta like the guy, he is hard working and resourcefull.

It looks like Ralph decided to reset the bottom 6 and keep his top 6 consistant to what was working, that is excellent gamesmanship being displayed, Ralph is going to use his muscle to earn the right to play the offense his team needs so badly, and he is going to use his major muscle masses to do the work, verrry smart.

The potential scoring from greasy goals looks great in the bottom 6 now. We are going to grind them down with our energy and netfront pressure from the bottom 6, it will be hard to be worked over by those 6 guys in front of the net for 60 mins and then skate with and defend against the top 6. Tired guys take more penaltys, and this means our big muscles will wear them down and they will try to clutch and grab the speedsters.Nicely played Ralph Krueger. Welcome back Theo, keep it tight out there and earn your minutes.

As far as I know... these are the line combos for the game (subject to change)

Taylor Hall - Ryan Nugent-Hopkins - Jordan Eberle
Nail Yakupov - Sam Gagner - Ales Hemsky
Ryan Smyth - Eric Belanger - Ben Eager
Teemu Hartikanen - Chris VandeVelde - Magnus Paajarvi

Nick Schultz - Justin Schultz
Ladislav Smid - Jeff Petry
Theo Peckham - Mark Fistric

Devan Dubnyk
Nikolai Khabibulin
