If Horcoff is injured, what would the lines be?

Something like:

Eberle-Cogliano-Giroux
Pajarvi-Brule-Omark
Reddox-Fraser-Jones
JFJ-O'marra-Macintyre

Oh god

My god that team sucks. It made me mad when Peter Stasny said they were so close, yeah my ass they were, random fly by night secondary scoring for no names and you call that on the verge of greatness?!

But seriously, this is a real amazing run of injuries.

Looks like you got your wish, it's being reported that Harski will be with EDM for Thursday's game against Phoenix. He's been great to watch play in OKC, I hope everyone will be pleasantly surprised how he has progressed. OKC has likely seen the last of Teemu unless they can make the playoffs, I would be surprised if he is ever back in the A if he plays like he has. Good luck Teemu.

Thats very exciting. Loved this kid ever since I saw him battle like a man amongst boys in the corners at the world juniors.

At this rate, the roster won't have any NHL players on it by the time the season runs out. I don't believe in karma and other silly things like that, but it's getting kind of eerie at this point how thoroughly the injury bug is hitting the roster.

Hell, didn't the piece of glass fall on Tambielli when he was watching practice the other day? Though, we might be able to chalk that one up to a crude assassination attempt by one of the more emotional types on the oiler blogosphere than a freak accident

Horcoff only has 27 points.... so that means only will be out for about half of the remaining season instead of the whole season correct??

I'm honestly laughing now... with Horcoff out our lines are horrendous.

MPS-Cogliano-Eberle for a first line

Groiux-Brule-Omark for a second line

Fraser playing 3rd line center

Oklahoma's season quickly going down the drain.

Ryan Whitney 2010-12-29 on injured reserve and is expected to miss the remainder of the season right ankle surgery

When we traded Lubo I was thinking "man, as much as I love Lubo, I can't stand how often he gets injured." We got a bigger PMD and he's missing even more time.

Taylor Chorney 2011-02-23 on injured reserve right knee
Theo Peckham 2011-02-28 out indefinitely concussion-like symptoms

Chorney has played like a #7 d-man this year, while Peckham has looked capable of 2nd pairing minutes at times. 3 d-men on the team with the weakest defense down to injuries = OMG! How could this get any worse? :knocks on wood: If another d-man goes down we may as well just call up all of the d-men from the Barrons. Have them all on standby as we drop like flies.

Ales Hemsky 2011-03-03 out indefinitely shoulder

Assuming he still has trade value, this is yet another reason to trade him. Yes, he went on our run to the finals. Yes, he's a great talent. Yes, he's just coming into his prime... but how can we justify giving this guy a long term extension if we have no reason to believe that he's going to stay healthy? 6 million per year for 60 games per year isn't as bad as some might think... but what if he doesn't ever play 60 in a season again?

Taylor Hall 2011-03-04 will miss the remainder of the season high left ankle sprain

Freak injury. Bad, but not crying.

Sam Gagner 2011-03-10 will miss the remainder of the season left hand surgery

Right after having an amazing game the night before...

Can't believe this. Can't believe it at all.

Thanks for a good laugh. Chalk it up to conspiracy theorist we would never do something like that

I just want to go on the record and say I blame Horcoff for his own stupid injury. I just do not understand what the hell he was thinking or doing. He knows damn well exactly what is going to happen next when the puck goes to MPS, not to mention he winds up... and yet not only does Horcoff not move, he doesn't even turn to face the puck so that his feet are protected.

Not to mention how embarrassing that whole circus was. I mean as if the game wasn't bad enough...

I'm very excited to see Harski!

HOPE is back baby.


When was the last time we had a couple late round forwards actually trend as positively as Omark and Harski?

We are hardly going to be much worse with Horcoff out of the line up so no worries there. I feel the most bad for OKC and their fans.

Ducks?



And I'm excited that Teemu is getting the call. We could use a little bit of his game out there.

Anyway, you draft best player available. And that seems to be Larsson, which is fine since we have to make a new team one way or another.
The debate between the two was never about who would have the better first couple years. Most Seguin supporters admitted Hall would be dominant early, but that in 4-6 years Seguin might prove to have the higher ceiling.

It's funny how fast history is revised. I was a Hall booster, but I do think it's disingenuous for so many people to turn around and declare Hall the better player based on his first season.

Good call, Renny must have been listening to you.

Hopefully someone drops a horse shoe down his pants at the rate injuries are hitting everyone.

Nah, MV was listening to Renney. Renney has mentioned in interviews about getting a look at Hartski for a few weeks now.

We can always count on the indestructable Jason Strudwick.
