Oilers-Canucks Gameday Thread Sept.30/03

Should be good tonight. Oilers need to figure out who their top six will be, and aside from the obvious (Smyth, York, Dvorak, Hemsky) the two centermen are up in the air. Does Isbister play 1line LW with Smyth in the middle? Will York move over?

Hope York has a good game tonight.

Just thought I'd mention, Naslund isn't playing tonight (ailing groin), but he will be only miss the one game).

Can anyone tell me if Alexei Semenov is playing? He was astounding last time the two teams met in pre-season - maybe he won't suffer a sophmore slump?

I also hope York can show us how he has rebounded from his injury. The team will need him healthy to make it to the dance.

I'll try not to cringe every time he takes a shot on the wrist.

Very good news about Semenov. I took a lot of heat over on the OIlers board for saying he was better than Komisarek. He's got a lot of potential - perhaps more than I even realized last season!

As for York, I think Mike is a pretty tough guy, but a pretty smart guy too. I don't forsee this being a problem for him!

I would love to see Mike York with a great game tonight. This way he can gain even more confidence with his wrist. I'm anticipating a career year for him.

Moreau - Reasoner - Pisani

Smyth, Brewer both skated yesterday and will be back soon. Horcoff has injured his hip and will need a few days to rest and heal. Scratches, Ferguson, Chimera and Wright.

Kevin Pedergast (spelling?) is on the pre-game Canucks radio show. Rundown of his thoughts of the Oilers camp:

- Down to 27 players. Going to keep all 27 until the end of the exhibition schedule.

- Very comptetive camp, young players playingwell, singled out Mikko Luoma

- Said the hockey club still has 4 positions.

- The 7th defensemen spot is battling between Bergeron & Luoma . Guess this means Ferguson won his spot.

- Sarno or Stoll is going to replace Comrie for the time being.

- Rita & Salmelinen are 'fighting for a spot'

- Horcoff playing hard, will get an increased role on the squad

- Re: Comrie.. nothing has changed, still in a stalemate. Lowe & Winter talk evey day, but there's 'a gap there'. 'We go on as if it was an injury'.

- Asked if Lowe has talked to other teams: NO! .. at least, not yet. They want to use that as a last-resort. If they feel it's impossible to sign him, they will move him.

- Regarding Comrie's dad & The Brick: 'I think last year was pretty tough on Mike... our stars weren't our stars and Mike paid the price from the fans & the media'

- 'I think he wants to play hockey.. there are some ill feelings from the end of last year.. we are trying to bridge [the gap]... I think Mike is antsy'

- 'We feel this is the year to make a dent [in the western conference].. Salo came into camp in tremendous shape... Hemsky is a player that [we think is at the tip of the iceberg].. we think he can be a superstar.'

sweet interview recap, thanks

interesting thing I read about york, in the 56 games before his injury, he had 51 points. Considering mact moved him around like an army brat, that is very impressive. Almost a point a game clip. If mact keeps him with two good linemates and lots of ice time, could he go from 0.9 points per game to 1.0 points per game?

Ferguson may make the team, but with Cross back there as well that situation may not last a complete season. TWO really slow guys? That hasn't worked since the 67 Leafs.

Have to hand it to Sarno, he's hung in really well. Rita has lost every traingin camp battle he's ever fought, and he's on the 4th line tonight. Nice to know they plan on using Horcoff more.

Over in Tampa, they have 3 fairly slow guys and works okay. You just have to pair them with faster guys.

EDIT: By the way, a few Oiler & Canuck fans over in HF chat. Drop by if you boys and girls want to chat during the game.

I don't know the Lightning well enough to comment on this, but it's likely they'll improve their backline speed long before they win alot.

Yeah Rita scored a goal against Calgary didn't he? Came in from a tough angle and scored pretty much from the goal line
