    Going 1-1-0 in a home-and-home stand with the Phoenix Coyotes appears to be unacceptable for Coach Keenan.

    "I'm very disappointed with our performance so far this season. I thought this team was a lock for the playoffs, and though it's still early, it really doesn't look like we WANT to win."

    To mix things up, Keenan has brought winger Martin Rucinsky up to the first line to play alongside Havlat and Stefan. This move will reunite last season's Czech Line which was instrumental in the Oiler's making the playoffs. Team Captain Ryan Smyth, whose performance so far has been underwhelming, was moved to play alongside Ryan Malone and Teemu Selanne.

    "I'll be honest, we had been thinking about moving Martin [Rucinsky] up to play with Havlat for a few games now. The time seems right, lets hope it works out for us."
