I like them! I like it when Reasoner plays in a slighty more offensive role and I have a feeling that sticking him on that line would be far more effective than having Petersen out there. The Torres-Stoll-Pisani line hasn't been scoring as of late but I still feel fairly comfortable with that trio out on the ice so I'm fine with keeping them together.

That could work if Moreau comes back hard, it's true.

18-16-14 would be an outstanding 3rd line.

How about having a Lupul-Stoll-Pisani and Torres-Reasoner-Sykora line , Sykora has been a right-winger for most of his career, and putting him back on his proper wing might be good for him.

Could it really have been this easy all along? Was putting the 1st line back together the answer all along? God I hope so because they were amazing tonight.

Wow good thing we won tonight or I would have been on Staios' ass. We had all the momentum at the time and he takes one of the stupidest penalties I have ever seen that led to their 2nd goal.

Anyways, I have said it but need to say it again. That Horcoff line was outstanding tonight. They scored 4 goals but could have easily had 8 or 9. They were flying. I really liked what Horcoff did for Hemsky. He seemed to just get in the right spots to give Hemsky options and space. Also funny to see Hemsky come out and play like that after saying the team stinks. Dude's a gamer.

Jussi might have played on of the best 3 goal games in a long time. He was really good tonight. I really wonder how many more points we would have had if MacT handled the goalie situation better. Jussi is a really good goalie when he is playing in short spans. MacT should understand this and give him some more games. Keeps Roli fresh as well.

I had given up hope on the season but the 1st line has brought back hope. If they can go on a nice little streak here and play like they did tonight/last year, then all of a sudden I wouldn't be opposed to Lowe becoming a buyer. Hopefully the Pisani line can step up like they are capable of and we can get 2 really good ES lines.

I missed the last period and a half. Whew, relieved the Oil got a much needed victory. I'll watch the final half on tape, but from what I've seen Smyth is the ultimate slump buster. He's actually brought life back into Horcoff and Hemsky. Horcoff seems to be finding his game, finally. He should be convinced to donate a big chunk of salary to the resign Ryan Smyth fund.

Smytty has proven he can play with anyone in the lineup. It is clear that Horc and Hemsky benefit from the Mullet's elbow grease and tenacity in the greasy spots. I agree with posters suggesting Lupul on Stoll's wing. I'd even play with a Lupul, Stoll, Sykora line.

Saw 'Letters from Iwo Jima' tonight. Very, very powerful film.

Thank goodness the Oil pulled out two points. Uphill struggle but there is hope with the first line reunited and our big salary guys leading the charge.

Sykora's first 25 games, when teams were still figuring themselves out and the pickings were easier:

25-12-13-25, +2, 68 shots on goal, 17.6% shooting

Sykora's last 25 games, once the games started to get more serious:

25-5-9-14, -7, 55 shots on goal, 9.1% shooting

He has cooled off in a big way.

Sykora is good but as anybody whos blind can tell... he's pretty usless without Hemmer.... like I said previously, we should get rid of him in the off-season and acquire somone that can contribute without Hemmer and keep SHH together. I'm pretty sure for what we pay Sykora we can certainly find a player who does what Sykora does but without Hemsky

Problem is he's done it before.

He's started 7 games, 4 of them have been good, 3 of them have been horrible.
