Sabres vs. Oilers :: 7PM MST :: Revenge of the Reddox... The Redux.
OK, So I don't have a ton of time to do this, but I'm going to the game, and am on a one game GDT winning streak, so might as well try and make it two. Also, I've been to three games so far this year, and they've won em all, so why the REDDOX not.
TV: Snet Radio: Ched/ XM 2something Microwave: This game will not be televised by microwaves. Where: Rexall Place in Edmonton Directions: take a left at the sex-trade worker who is actually a nice person, but is just a little lost and follow the road until you have to pay for parking. Pay, walk until you meet a guy who may or may not be sporting a mullet and is asking if you'd like to buy or sell tickets.
Reddox fact #1: Liam Reddox has seven different colors of Ipod skin covers, including yellow.
Can Third Star of the Week, aka Fan Fav Poll Leader, aka Ales Hemsky continue his dominant play after the weekend break? Incase you lost your memory over the weekend, here's a reminder of what this guy can do...
Did that jog your memory?
Reddox fact #2: Liam Reddox once ate 4 salted crackers without drinking water, all in under one minute.
Here's an intensive hilight package of Liam Reddox.
Reddox fact #3: Liam Reddox drinks lemonade, but doesn't really have a color preference; I prefer pink.

I'll try to add more in the afternoon time permitting, including line-ups, but it looks like Gagner might be sitting this one out. If I can't add more info, feel free to add it below, I'm not sure how much free time I'll have.
I'll end this by saying I actually like Reddox, and I'm happy he's carved a niche for himself, although I'd prefer that he keep his niche somewhere in the bottom six area. The jabs at him in this GDT are only here for cheap giggles and because I think we all agree on how he's being slightly over used.
edit: from TSN ice chips..
Forward Sam Gagner had an MRI on Monday to check out his sore ankle. Sheldon Souray got the day off following the All-Star weekend. - TSN
Roloson was a sieve in the last game ... 3 clean shots from a decent distance and they all went straight in, no screens. You can let maybe one goal like that in through the course of a game and still come out looking good but... damn.
I think the Roloson we have right now is the same as the Roloson that finished the season with us last year. The Roloson who will routinely let in 3-6 goals every single night regardless of the quality of the chances. ( - honestly, with the exception of one or two games.) But we still managed to win a lot of those games. Will our offence be able to keep up with the blazing pace easily set by the opposing squadron each game? Stay tuned to find out.
