I haven't seen our line up yet but I've read Staal, Sutter, Pitkanen and Corvo will all play tomorrow night

Lineup is:

Drayson Bowman
Brett Carson
Erik Cole
Joe Corvo
Zac Dalpe
Patrick Dwyer
Jay Harrison
Jussi Jokinen
Tom Kostopoulos
Jamie McBain
Riley Nash
Patrick O'Sullivan
Justin Peters
Joni Pitkanen
Justin Pogge
Bryan Rodney
Tuomo Ruutu
Sergei Samsonov
Eric Staal
Brandon Sutter

The Hurricanes appear to have the better lineup at first glance, but Cole and Harrison will screw everything up as usual. Either that or Cole will score four goals and guarantee himself a spot on Staal's line until he gets hurt in mid-October.

Any idea will this be visible somehow? We've got a pretty good lineup on this one... I'd like to see Pitkänen - McBain-pairing

Osala has no shot this year and I don't like that... If he's around next year, he'll have a good chance

Cole has an answer for all of you Cole haters...

Quote:
Is the power forward capable of doing it again at age 31?

Cole, for one, believes he can answer that last question.

"You know what, I definitely think I'm capable of that," he said Wednesday. "If I can play a consistent brand of hockey and play to my capability, I don't think there should be any reason I shouldn't be a 30-goal scorer."

Eric Kole will score 30 goals this season, mark my words.

Heck..if Cole can be a 20/20 guy and not turn the puck over at the blue line 10,000 times by trying the same move and not loaf back to the bench and/or on the back check, I'll be extremely happy.

Baby steps. Let's take this one problem at a time...

Yeah...the problem is that they are all related.

Anyhow..interesting that the 3 "young" forwards chosen to play tonight are Bowman, Nash and Dalpe.

My "reading between the lines" (yeah..I know it is total BS but that's half the fun) is that they are giving Bowman an extra chance to convince the staff to keep him up (vs. guys like Boychuk where they already saw him for 30 games last year) and they are seeing which one of Nash or Dalpe will take the 3rd line center role.

I don't know where you're getting your information from. He has as good a chance of any as making the team (albeit 4th line time max)

Shocked?! seriously???? come on, they'll only take NHL squad for the Finland trip, if he doesn't make it to NHL he isn't going.

There will be no passengers, they might take an additional forward and/or D-man, but that's it. Too many guys are ahead of Osala in depth

As of right now, he's chances are very, very slim.

If O'Sullivan continues to play well, things get even tougher for Osala at wing:

O'Sullivan
Jokinen
Ruutu
Cole
LaRose
Samsonov
Kostopoulos

That leaves one wing on the 4 lines plus a 13th forward. Osala is competing with Tlusty (if healthy), Boychuk, Bowman, and Skinner for a spot on the opening night active roster. While Osala could travel to Finland as the 13th forward, the press box is a bad place for him long term.

With Skinner almost certainly getting a 9 game tryout, things are even tighter up front in Finland. I think it's likely Boychuk and Skinner are part of the opening night squad, Tlusty is on the injured list, and Osala heads back to Charlotte.

Somebody should tell Cole that he's nearly 32 years old and has exactly one 30 goal season, which came in the inflated scoring post-lockout year playing with a 100 point center and shooting at an unsustainable 18.5%.

He has as much chance at 30 goals as Brian Gionta has at 48 again.

There is literally 1 or 2 spots open... He's not making the roster unless we have 2-3 injuries

Obviously they just picked names out of a hat. There's really no other explanation.

As long as they get similar even-strength TOI, then I think it's a reasonable lineup.
