    Discussion points

    oh yeah this happened today

    Omark get sent back down after a 9 minute audition

    oilers are heading towards the 1/4 of the season and well, this is not good

    on the bright side the flyers are in the same boat if not worse

    Edmonton Oilers ‏@EdmontonOilers 15m Perron skating --> RT @TomGazzola 4-89-83. 57-93-14. 6-41/27-26. 20-94-64/28 are the #Oilers line combos at practice today in Philly.

    Edmonton Oilers ‏@EdmontonOilers 13m Defence update --> RT @TomGazzola Belov taking part in full practice. Justin Schultz skated prior to rest of team getting on the ice

    Maybe Perron and Belov draw back in?

    Hall - Gagner - Hemsky
    Perron - RNH - Eberle
    Joensuu - Acton/Gordon - Arcobello
    Gazdic - Smyth - Yakupov/Jones

    Those are the line combos.

    J. Schultz skated prior. Belov taking part in practice.

    Just realized how pathetically soft our top 6 is.

    Looks like Yakupov won't be seeing that 6 million/year contract this off season.

    Toiler bowl round 2.

    If any team can spark the Flyer's offence it's Edmonton.

    This has the makings of the greatest game we've ever seen. Legacies will be forged. Godspeed to the draft, gentlemen.

    Safe to say Acton and Yakupov are the scratches? Hopefully N Schultz sits, I wanna see more of Larsen and Fedun.

    Scratching Yak would be beyond stupid. The Flyers are the NHL's current slump busters.

    More shopping excursion than game maybe. We are told we aren't using Yak or Ebs for currency.

    Let's see what's on the Flyer's shelves.

    The fact that he's sharing reps with Jones, while Joenssu is on the third line tells me it might be the case, hope I'm wrong though.

    Soli..Are these a for sure thing?

    I'm doing the GDT and wouldn't mind the heads up.

    I'll use these until it is stated otherwise.

    Thanks

    I love Joensuu's comments about being annoyed and pissed off about being injured.

    Perron and Joensuu are coming off injuries. Eakins put them on lines in hopes that they play tomorrow.

    I think it's safe to assume that Gordon will center the 3rd line.

    The 4th line... I have no clue. I hope its Gazdic - Smyth - Yakupov. But I hate that line too. Hah.

    Perhaps just take it off nonchalantly and fold it neatly, putting it away in a bag?

    That kind of behaviour wouldn't fit in with his username.
