Put Hall at center, please! The Oilers were brutal last time these two teams played at center. Just do it! Cant hurt! Wont hurt! ..But it might help!?

Jones - Hall - Hemsky
Magnus - Gagner - Eberle
Eager - Hopkins - Yakupov
Smyth - Belanger - Brown

Spread the wealth and have an energy player on every line. Yes, Magnus has been an energy payer lately! What does this team lack.. ENERGY! Having just skill on the top 2 lines HAS NOT WORKED!

Go OIL! I'm tired of watching paint dry!

That actually doesn't look too bad at all.

I'm expecting the Oilers to get badly outshot again. And lose.

I'm also predicting that nothing will be done within the front office to change the team and this will continue, forever, like in Groundhog Day.

Hall doesn't want to play center.

On a bright note if this game gets out of hand early you can turn it off and still have a nice evening doing whatever else it is you like to do with your weeknights.

I like to sob quietly in front of the television, so I'll keep the game on.

That's laughable.

That being said he should stay at wing

Really? Play the kid on a lotto team for 3 years, then demand he play out of position. That's the way to keep him happy.

Erik Cole didn't exactly like switching from one wing to the other and look how that went. Guy went from being on Sportsnet intermission praising the City talking about how he made a clean break from Carolina moving everyone to Edmonton, to being on the Jim Rome show taking shots at us.

Hall is NOT a center, i think even Hall recognizes that based on him saying that he doesn't want to play there so i'm not sure why there's so much stubbornness amongst some fans to slot him in at center. The last thing this team needs is to play another player out of position.
The team is already struggling as is and moving the best forward on the team this season (or 2nd best if you consider Gagner to be the best) out of his comfort zone to a position that he hasn't played in many years is not a recipe for success.

Ya and he was also part of 1% of players that didn't like the new CBA.
So who cares what that whiny ***** thinks. That's why he is in Dallas.

Let him play center, I'd like to see him laying on the ice and see what fans have to say.

The guy has a hard enough time avoiding contact while going along the boards against one d-men, but now we want him to play center and risk trying to beat two guys?

imo that says a lot more about Erik Cole than it does about what wing he was asked to play on.

Not really. When he struggled everyone asked why and it was simple. He was famous for going down the right side and cutting to the left being able to keep the puck away from defenders. We decided to make him try it on the other side which was weaker for him.

So because he got an assignment he didn't like (or as you say one that didn't make sense) he gets to go on Rome and slag off the city?

I feel good about this game. After kicking us fans in the junk a few times, the Oilers occasionally pull out a good game and win, so we can take a breath and get prepared for more misery.
I think this will be one of those games.

just wish DD wasn't playing.

I think this game is worth me betting 250vcash

3-2 Edmonton, but with DD giving up yet another weak goal.

even better. I have something to do early, but then will be going to the pub. I should be able to have beers for the last half of the game. I can drown my oiler sorrows. lol

They need 16 or 17 wins in the last 26 to have a shot at the 8th spot if the projected cut line is 55 points.

So, better start that winning streak tonight.

4-1 Detroit.

Shots 45-19.

It'll be tied 1-1 heading into the third, and the Oilers will promptly let their guard down for two seconds and find them down 2 goals quickly. 4th goal is an empty netter.

Dubnyk keeps the team in it as long as he can.

Oilers goal will be scored by Jones.
