    Do we usually dress a full starting lineup in the last game? If so then Myers may be getting a real shot with how bad the bottom 3 have looked.

    I am finally able to watch again, hoping to see the amazing plays of high-speed-healer Andrew McDonald...

    I don't think what happened in the past applies here. Injuries and lineup battles vary and two players are likely to make their season debuts. I would imagine that the eventual lines would benefit from at least one exhibition game and as such Simmonds' and Couturier's line mates will be what is listed. Then the remainder of the forwards would be among those battling to make the squad. Just a guess.

    Good to see Coururier get some time before the season begins. Hope he doesn’t suffer from the same pains Giroux had after his injury.

    I had a dream last night Lehtera scored a goal in this game and made the opening night roster.

    Since rumor is that Myers is in Boston with the team, and the Ghost-Provorov pairing may not even play (according to Meltzer), are we looking at a defense group like:

    Sanheim-Folin/Gudas
    MacDonald-Myers
    Hagg-Friedman

    or something along those lines? Giving Myers & Friedman their first test against a basically full lineup of NHL regulars to see how they stack up?

    Where did the rumor of Myers in Boston come from?

    We had an inside source hinting at it yesterday. I forget which thread it was, but he kinda tipped us off.

    That is normal to send a player down and then bring them back up for the preseason without any injuries occurring?

    So my guess is he's in for AMac. If 9-53 are not playing, to me it seems like a one game tryout for the bottom couple spots.
