    So, I guess with me being GDT maker this time, I would be in charge of throwing this up.

    Well, yeah. Game. Cool. Let's go.

    PS: If anybody finds the expected lineup for the game, could you post it here? The one on the oilers site doesn't look greatly up-to-date, and I would greatly appreciate it in my GDT-making.

    any word on Pacioretty's health? Him being out is a big loss...though not as big as Hall + Eberle

    I thought we all agreed we didn't like these pre game thread things.

    As am I.

    I don't mind a Pre-GDT if we're so long between games, would have rathered this went up yesterday actually. If we're doing back-to-backs, no reason. I'll leave discretion to whoever wants to throw them up.

    I'll grab the lineups for you, posted them somewhere in the PGT of last game.

    Lol why? It's nice to get some updates before game day.



    Murray, Parros, Drewiske, Pacioretty, Emelin, Brière and Prust.

    all out for Montreal with injury.

    These are the lines yesterday with Eberle on a maintenance day:
    Yakupov - RNH - Gagner; Perron - Arcobello - Hemsky; Smyth - Gordon - Jones; Gazdic - Acton - Brown

    Today, with Eberle and Smyth sitting out:
    Yakupov - RNH - Hemsky; Perron - Arcobello - Jones; Grebeshkov - Gordon - Gagner; Gazdic - Acton - Brown

    D-pairings were likely 77/19, 5/2, 21/15

    Dubnyk starts.

    I think Eberle and Smyth both play tomorrow, but I dunno. Pitlick was recalled.

    ---

    Montreal practice lines:

    Bournival-Plekanec-Gionta
    Galchenyuk-Eller-Gallagher
    Moen-Desharnais-Bourque
    Blunden-White- Holland

    Markov - Subban
    Gorges - Diaz
    Tinordi - Boullion

    Price starts.

    Injured Habs: Murray, Parros, Drewiske, Pacioretty, Emelin, Brière and Prust.

    PGTs are the least of this teams worries. Believing in them altering a win or loss is right up there with the tooth fairy.

    Hope Ebs is good to go. Gonna be a tough task just without Hall. Mind you, Montreal is pretty best up too.

    Having watched the habs, and specifically the Galchenyuk- Eller - Gallagher line play a fewgames this year makes me jealous as an oilers far.

    They epitomize youthful exuberance, but show intelligence and restraint in doing so. Bright future as a line

    If Eberle plays we have a shot at a win, if he's out I don't think we'll be able to put together much of a fight.

    I think the pp will look a lot different tomorrow an we'll see Belov shoot a lot more because that's what Eakins said they were focusing on

    I think Eberle will play and Smyth will sit. Gagner will play next home game.

    Are we 1-0 with Grebeshkov in the lineup?

    Good point. Someone get a phone call to Ryan Stone for that wicked 2010-11 mojo.

    Tell me more.

    ... or just log off. Yeah that's fine.

    At any rate, Gene Principe concurs.

    @GenePrincipe
    Taylor Hall will have company in Edm. Ryan Smyth is flying home.Smyth didn't skate this morning and will be looked at by team's medical staff

    Just finishing up the GDT before I hit the books to study for my midterm tomorrow, coming along excellent (despite mild time constraints), I think you fellas will love it.

    Looks like Pitlick has to draw in tomorrow. If Eberle doesn't play then a defenseman will have to play forward unless they make another call-up.

    So Pitlick for Smyth?

    Could be useful against Montreal, let's hope he continues with the same style of play he had in the preseason.

    I hate to break it to you but the Oilers don't win or lose games based on anything anybody says or does on HFboards.
