    IMO this is a must win game to keep up with the rest of the Pacific division. Our games in hand are now gone.

    A win puts us in a tie for top spot.

    Will Lucic be suspended? I doubt it, most likely a fine.

    This is what I WOULD like to see.

    Nuge-McDavid-Rattie
    Rieder-Drai-Chiasson
    Cagguila-Strome-JP
    Lucic-Brodziak-Kass

    Klef-Larss
    Nurse-Russell
    Garrison-Benning

    Talbot

    Lets go Oil.

    Not again...:huh:.

    If they're not going to put JP with skilled players on the 1st or 2nd, send him down.

    Must win game.

    I don't really care who plays, just beat them.

    Meh, Strome has been playing well. He's been snake bitten. Hopefully scoring last night helped his get going here...

    Did Chiasson play last night? He's a bit banged up is he not? I suspect we won't see him until the team returns to Edmonton.

    Need to find a way to get this win, make this roadtrip reasonable, imo

    Florida will probably be playing Lou in this game, which gives us a chance to win.

    This team just can't beat backup goaltenders.

    Oh, I forget about Trochek. Can't stand him. I'd like to see Koskinen back in. I have more confidence in him that Talbot.. Sit for a while Talbot.

    Caggiula at least this year has been a skill player.

    LeBrun thinks Lucic might get a one or two game suspension. If he is out of the lineup and the third line produces for a couple games is there any chance Looch moves down to the 4th line afterwards?....Sorry, stupid question.

    So if we drop down to Buttman 500, do we fire TMac?

    Nah if this org has taught me anything, it won't be until after playoffs are way out of reach, and all viable candidates are employed elsewhere, at which point we will hire someone unqualified, but with an oiler history.

    The rest of this month has a lot of winnable games.

    No suspension for Lucic. 10,000 dollar fine.

    It would be a nice gesture if some of the players that benefit from Lucic's policing chipped in for a $10,000 Christmas present for Lucic.

    I don’t get why they couldn’t send him a light message with a short 40 game ban.

    Suspend him for the next, uh, 313 regular season games so the message really sinks in.

    They better come out and punish the Panthers early unlike the tentative crap we've seen the past couple games.
