    Good stuff.

    Good news, I'm sure Gagner's excited to get back in the line up. I wonder why Dreger would know though?

    Good to hear that Samwise is playing. Who the hell are we playing anyways?

    Oh Leafs. Never mind.

    Welcome back Sam, keep your head up as it appears others teams are head hunting and going for knees of any Oiler. The going rate is 2K for some fund that does appear to help the Oilers with the nagging injuries they get in return.

    I think ToeDrag is going to be posting soon.

    I started one and didn't realize he was signed up, so I just scrapped mine haha.

    I'm just hoping as people come back from injury MacT jumps into the trade waters. Our depth forwards haven't shown that bad. Well compared to our D and our Goaltending at least.

    Color me interested.

    The actual team captain is returning tonight.

    Hopefully he can help Yakupov keep clawing his way out of the s***er. It would be nice to have to three solid scoring lines.

    rnh-eberle
    gags-yak
    perron-hemsky

    Throw your support guys in as you please.

    he's like the Oilers and doesn't show up to start the game.

    This could be the first Oiler game in quite some time to actually have the team play 4 decent centres.

    RNH
    Gagner
    Gordon
    Arcobello

    that's not too bad.

    Hopefully Gags plays on the wing, and it not, hopefully Arc takes his draws for him.

    Gagner only suits center so he wont be playing wing! I hope we all cheer very loud for him as soon as he steps on the ice :)

    Lets start to climb out of our funk as long as Bachman keeps playing way he did vs LA, we will have a shot... I know our team will be better, we just were gassed from the road trip!

    I hope we roll 3 scoring lines. Have Gagner centering Yak. Perron with RNH and Eberle.


    Pumped to see Gagner return. Massive boost for this squad.

    There's only an optional skate today eh? With Eakins, figure we'll have to wait till warm up to know the lines.

    Perron - Nugent-Hopkins - Eberle
    Jones - Gordon - Hemsky
    Lander - Gagner - Yakupov
    Gazdic - Arcobello - Eager

    Arco and Lander can swap as coach Eakins can see fit,

    When healthy (Hall, Joensuu, and Smyth in particular)

    Hall - Nugent-Hopkins - Yakupov
    Perron - Gagner - Eberle
    Smyth - Gordon - Hemsky
    Joensuu - Arcobello - Gazdic
    Ex. Jones/Eager

    FOR THE LOVE OF GOD PLEASE WIN TONIGHT :cry:
    JUST WIN!!! :yo:

    Jones on the 1st, and Gordon on the 4th is terrible.

    I hate to say it but, Arco has to play 4th line. Yeah he has a lot of assists and wins faceoffs, but he has no goals.

    I think that's only five weeks recovery time. Sure hope he's not rushing it.

    With Arco still playing decent hockey, Lander called up and Acton looking like a solid 4rth line centre...it will be interesting to see what Eakins comes up with for line combinations.

    Pretty much the first time this fall he's had some serious options to consider.

    Mind you...it might be more straight forward than that.

    Lander was "OK" the other night...but...did we really see anything from him to suggest he's a "must" to be in the line up tonight?

    My guess is...Gagner starts the game on the wing...somewhere...Lander will be scratched and Acton will centre a 4rth line.
