We only have 12 forwards on the roster right now we can keep everyone but since i am a sucker for lineup threads i well do my forward line up With a healthy Pouliot and Comrie.

Penner-Gagner-Brule
Comrie-Horcoff-Osullivan
JFJ-Cogliano-Nilsson
Moreau-Stortini-Stone
Pouliot-Potulny

The first line is not broken so why fix it.

The second line should be able to hold there own and play tough minutes despite being smaller.

The third has Cogs and Nilsson back together in a hope that they can regain the chemistry they once shown with JFJ hitting everybody in a different colored jersey and protecting his smaller linemates. It also gets Cogs away from his ball and chain Moreau.

The fourth is a energy line that well bring it every night and drive the other team crazy at the same time.

The press box has two players that i would put in the lineup ahead of Moreau but since its unlikely the Oilers sit Moreau he takes their spot. If it was up to me or the best case scenario that Moreau gets hurt my fourth line looks like this Stone-Potulny-Stortini.

I tend to agree. Assuming that Pisani stays on LTIR, once everyone else is healthy I would bet that the Oilers keep a 23 man roster. In this case there is no need to waive anyone.

The wild card in this is Pisani. If he can come back, then things get more dicey. Would they waive someone in order to get him back on the roster?

When they come back I'd like to see:

Penner-Gagner-Brule --- Don't mess with a good thing.
Stone-Comrie-O'Sullivan - They had good chemistry at the begining of the year and I don't think we should mess that up.
JFJ-Horcoff-Cogliano -- Cogs needs to move to the wing and Horc needs his minutes cut again.
Nilson-Pouliot-Stortini - BLah... I want Poltuny to stay up but I don't see it happening... opps... looked like I waived Moreau! Sorry! HAHAHA

Backwards day?

Potulny is a nice fringe player, but we've got many of him. We could use a real top-six player in the line-up.

The second Comrie's ready to go, Potulny can watch a few games.

I think there is still something which could be found in Pouliot, and it's worth giving him a look.
Stone, Jacques, Brule like the crash n bang.. Pouliot is the forward version of Gilbert..
I doubt he'll be effective under Quinn...

When Comrie comes back I hope Moreau gets put on IR <mental issues>

Penner-Gagner-Brule
Comrie-Horcoff-O'Sullivan
Jacques-Cogliano-Potulny
Stone-Stortini-Nilsson

Fringe players like Potulny are getting the job done for us..
I would not sit any one of Stone, Jacques, Potulny or Stortini..

Comrie replaces Nilsson, MAP goes to Waivers. Simple as that. I wouldn't want to put Potulny on Waivers or send him down. He's doing really good.

Maybe we should worry about it when the time comes. There have been so many injuries that I don't think this will even be an issue. I worried off the start what we would do and we somehow made everything fit.

you are both backwards, upside down and pissing into the wind

Potulny is not the bet

MAP is the bet

Its actually pretty simple. Comrie is redundant...Potluny isn't.

Potulny has elements to his game that helps this team win.
Comrie is a small, soft PP specialist...nothing more.

The question becomes...is Quinn smart enough to see that?

Cogliano

When Comrie is back I would put him to the place of Cogs and Cogs finds himself eating popcorn in PB.

I would also try to trade one of our small guys for Cullen (in Carolina). My favourite to send backing is O`Sullivan.

i think its a comrie vs nilsson and a potulny vs pouliot discussion...espcially if moreau continues his not-so-terrible play.

if nilsson keeps producing like he currently is, then he'll stay in the lineup and comrie will likely sit. i really don't see pouliot beating out potulny, especially since potulny is winning so many draws and is out there on the #1 PK sometimes. however, if nilsson keeps producing and potulny starts sucking, i would bet comrie draws back into the lineup first.

anyway, long term i think pouliot is gone, comrie won't be back next year and potulny can stick around until we find someone better.

I agree with this assessment, Potulny doesn't put up the pretty stats so naturally most people tend to ignore his contributions to the team which have been that he does all the little things right, he keeps the puck deep when needed, he backchecks well and he also creates some offense and has a nice little shot.
Comrie, on the other hand, has a nice little shot on the PP and can control the puck on the halfboards which we've had issues with since Hemsky went down but 5 on 5 (when the majority of hockey is played) he's bordering on useless..... The only reason that it would be prudent to sub in Comrie for Potulny imo is because he had nice chemistry with O'Sullivan and Stone and maybe he can help revitalize O'Sullivan's game which is vital in order for us to continue to compete.

As strange as it may sound but IMO Comrie holds the key to us making the playoffs.. If he comes back healthy and gets the 2nd line producing like preaseaon then we are in business..

Comrie-Horcoff-O'Sullivan
Jacques-Cogliano-Potulny (Potulny taking draws)
Nilsson-Stortini-Stone

as unfortunate as it is quinn has taken a liking to ethan, evidenced by ethan being on the ice with a minute left in the game ALWAYS. i don't see ethan getting the bench. maybe cogs would get benched first. i would hope so. i really like cogs but he hasn't been all that good this year. decent, but not good.

I think that when Comrie comes back, we need another small, non-physical player coming out. When we lost that grit, things went south for us pretty bad. I think Nilsson, Gagner, and O'Sull fit into that mold pretty well. I would prefer O'Sullivan out of that group, unless Nilsson returns from outspace and reclaims his body back.
As for MAP, his skill level isn't high, and he isn't a banger, so the only guys I see him taking the place of our Potulny and Cogliano. I'd prefer to keep those 2 in the lineup, and send MAP down, or trade him for a future draft pick.

One thing about MAP is that he won't get massacred on the faceoff dot. Take a look at the fourth line, and none of Stone, Storts, or Nilsson can take a faceoff (and win it). Third line, only Potulny can pretend. When your best faceoff man in your entire bottom six is 44%....it gives a heavy advantage for a 48-49 guy to get in the lineup.

Potulny and Pouliot warming the press box.



Really? So you're for keeping Strudwick in the line-up over Denis freaking Grebeshkov because we're winning games?

As if Grebs over Strudwick could only make us anything but better...
I seen Struds make two big mistakes last game that led to goals...the sooner he goes, the better IMO.

What exactly does Potulny do that helps this team win?

Score goals and points? Comrie does that better than maybe three guys on the Oilers payroll, and one of them is out for the season.

Hit? About as much as Robert Nilsson.

Play defense? He's a step back of Marc Pouliot in that area of the game.

I like Ryan Potulny, but he is a dime a dozen in our system. He fills no specific niche and is loading up on PP time. Comrie is better than him at that, by a wide margin, and brings an element of actual scoring we could use in our top-six with Hemsky gone.

I for one like Potulny and prefer him over Stortini, Stone and even Jacques.
but... I also prefer the above 4 over Cogliano, Moreau, O'Sullivan and Nillson :p

Also, Potulny has as many goals and as many points in as many games as Comrie.. I wont say that he is better then Comrie but he hits and also kills penalties along with scoring

Comrie-Horcoff-O'Sullivan
Jacques-Cogliano-Potulny (Potulny taking draws)
Nilsson-Stortini-Stone
Sorry to nitpick but i don't know why everybody keeps saying that these guys only produced in the preseason, for the first 6-8 games of the regular season, the Stone-Comrie-O'Sullivan line was our most dangerous line on a consistent basis moreso than the Penner-Horcoff-Hemsky line so i say that we should re-unite the Stone-Comrie-O'Sullivan and see if that'll spark O'Sullivan.
Also, why does everyone want to see Horcoff and O'Sullivan stay together? they are absolutely a horrible match for each other, just look at how well Horcoff did when he got put on a line with Nilsson and Stone. Those two need to be split up....
