As per Oilers home page, the Oilers had a 9am meeting this morning, with 7 players sticking around for a 90-min exchange between them and the coaches. Players that stuck behind were Sheldon Souray, Ales Hemsky, Dustin Penner, Shawn Horcoff, Nikolai Khabibulin, Steve Staios and Ethan Moreau. The meeting apparently was well received by both sides, despite some areas of concern laid out by the coaching staff.
What matters most though is how the players respond on the ice, however. I think I’m benching Bryzgalov in the pool tomorrow, because I’m hoping the Oilers come out flying against the Coyotes.
In more positive news, the Springfield Falcons are having success, at least, as their win last night put them to within 3 points of first in the Eastern Conference.
