Is Whitney playing tonight?

On the Oilers website, there is a bunch of stuff about Jones and Johnson playing tonight, but nothing about Whitney.

I know Edmonton ins't a major airport hub, but 2 days should be enough time to get here from Southern California.

As anyone heard anything regarding this?

Actually, would be interested to see what he can do with added responsibility. Whitney is Oilers' #1 D-man now, no doubt about it. Will have to play 25 + mins on a nightly basis.

For some reason, I get the feeling that a Whitney-Smid (when he's healthy again) pairing would be a hell of a good one.

From what I have heard Whitney is a bigger Gilbert..... If both of them would actually play the body and add a mean streak Im pretty sure that pairing would be hard to play against.

Either way, I will reserve my judgement until I have watched Whitney for 20 games or so. He certainly has the potential to develope into a solid 1-2 Dman, and I am looking forward to watching him play.

Don't forget the great Dan Smith!

I love low numbers for defensemen...too bad Chorney (although he's worn 4 everywhere else, so it makes sense) and Peckham are being obtuse by keeping their assigned training camp numbers.

Well there are 3-5 direct flights a day so I would think about 3 hours would be enough time lol.

We have entered the twilight zone.

Looking forward to seeing Whitney in Oiler silks...maybe provide a bit of a shake up?
