Buffalo Sabres vs. Los Angeles Kings - 1/21/10 - 7:30PM PST FSW

Teddy Purcell will go back into the lineup, as will Matt Greene, in place of Randy Jones.
This deserves its own thread. Thank god. The emergence of Peter Harrold as someone who doesn't suck total balls on defense, and Greene getting healthy, finally makes Jones the healthy scratch he was always meant to be.

As for Purcell back in the lineup.... let's just say I don't have my hopes up.

Tony, Telos, if you want this to be a pre-game thread until john arrives with the GTD, fine. Otherwise, bask for now in the knowledge that we don't have to watch Jones pretend he has any idea what an NHL defenseman is supposed to do!

Rejoice!

Rejoice!

We've got no choice!

Great!!!

If I had my druthers I'd pair Greene with JJ and bump OD down with Harrold. OD's age has really been showing lately and he's playing too much at this point.

I too have no high hopes for Purcell but hopefully he'll at least bring a lot of energy.

Hopefully this is the last we see of Jones, unless he's at forward. He's the new Harrold with zero defensive acumen.

I hate to say it, but we miss Kyle Quincey right now...Jones/Harrold suck, Martinez looks like a career AHL'er, Hickey is hurt, Voynov is too young, Teubert is still in juniors...Our D depth isn't what we thought...

Glad to have Greene back. I feel a little better about the next three games already.

We need to get the special teams rolling a little bit better, certainly the power play to be more effective. Certainly that’s a real strength of Teddy’s, I think, with his composure and his vision and puck movement.
So....have I been missing something this year? One PP point is a strength?

The 'composure' Murray talks about must be the reason Purcell always flubs or fans on his best passes/shots.

It's also disturbing that apparently Smyth could not make it in time for the game.

First Hammond said he'd be back by 11:30am, then, at noon, Hammond said "It’s not yet known — mostly because of Ryan Smyth’s weather-related delay — exactly what role Teddy Purcell will fill for the Kings tonight"

So Purcell is gonna solve our PP problem? Yeah........I don't think so. He has 1 point on the PP so far.

Smyth may be late because he was running the Olympic torch through Alberta. Oh boy, what a stupid problem to have.

If you been watching Harrold's play he's really not been that bad, I think people get caught up in the Harrold sucks as a forward and forget he is pretty good on Defense. Not flashy but solid.

Late or not be here. Airports are shutting down in the southwest due to the storm.

I hope they're not rushing Greene back, even though sitting Jones is a blessing.

The coaches seem to think its a problem. But I'm reassured, because you don't!
