Look on the bright side - they likely won't get the 1st overall pick again.

The bad news - it looks like the Flames have a chance at the 1st overall pick - but hey, you can't have everything....

Until the Avs show some willingness to spend some money, it'll be tough for them to be a serious threat. Seems to have a great scouting/developmental group - which is the difference why they're able to get what they can with the smaller internal budget they have to work with. They don't seem to need "high picks" to draft/develop solid players.

I love most of the Oilers player [Hall an Eberle especially] But cannot stand that fan base

Smid is a goof - likes "roughing it up" but can't handle it when somebody does it him.

I'm not a big fan either. I think he's quite overrated.

Nothing less than humiliating them will suffice. Beat them down, and run up the score.

I like this the most but I think your 2nd line should be the 3rd line and vice versa.

GO CANUCKS GO!!!

EDIT: Also I like some of the confidence and spirit for winning the cup. (Gillis and Roy(Must really want it))

Canucks will be scoreboard watching and see that the Wild lost in regulation.

With the current trend, I sense a loss to the Oilers tomorrow night

Part of me wants to put Kesler with Higgins and Hansen as a tough-minutes line and then watch Raymond-Roy-Kassian just rip it up against 4th lines and 3rd defense pairings.

(When everyone's healthy, of course).

Excited about this. Feels like forever since the trade. Like getting a new toy on Christmas and realizing it doesn't come with batteries and having to wait to play with it.

I hope we win in OT/SO so the Oilers can remain competitive in their quest for the post-season.

A legit second line centre. IT'S SO BEAUTIFUL.

Eh, let 'em have it. With that god awful management. I just can't mock them too much these days. Their fans suffer enough.

Hell to that. I want us to blow them away to redeem the humiliation we endured last week. Wish Lu was starting though.

Pivotal game. If the Canucks are humiliated again, I think they'll quit on Vignault. They might go into a swoon and miss the playoffs!

I expect a closer game, but the Canucks do not have the guns to beat Edmonton. They showed that. Roy isn't going to be a lot different from Schroeder, the way Vignault uses them.

I think it's a loss leading to a gut check leading to a meltdown.

Doesn't really matter what order they're in. Kesler will get the most minutes anyway.

A canuck win buries the Oilers behind the canucks, puts the canucks back into the division lead (even if temporarily) and in fact does MAJOR damage to the Oilers playoff hopes (they are going to have a hard time remaining in front of St. Louis to begin with).

Normally I think that would mean a canuck loss. Tonight I'm not sure because that will be balanced by actually having a second line center making his debut for the canucks. And you know that whether or not Roy wants to re-sign in Vancouver he is going to be giving it his all on a playoff bound team to up the numbers on his next contract.

The order is EVERYTHING. I mean a second line can't be a checking line and third line can't be a scoring line. Something I've learned the last 48 hours or so.
