Decision time for Jeff Petry and the Oilers…

What to do with Jeff Petry?

What to do with Jeff Petry?

Guy Flaming over at Coming Down The Pipe / The Pipeline Show wrote that the MSU Spartans have been swept by the Michigan Wolverines, and brought up the possibility of Petry heading to Springfield. So it’s decision time. Does Petry head to Springfield? I’d be tickled pink if that were the case.

I’ve seen a bit of Jeff Petry this year, and he has some upside in all aspects of his game. Great play in College doesn’t necessarily translate to the NHL though, so I’m sure he’ll spend some good time in Springfield/Oklahoma. But the question is, should he come up to Springfield now, or should he play another year in Michigan?

So… question for you folks…

Should Jeff Petry join the Falcons now?

PRE-GAME RANT

The battle of the basement takes place tonight. Who will you cheer for? It will feel dirty cheering for Toronto for a lot of people, so I think most will cheer Edmonotn on. But at the same time, having some extra separation would be nice. The Oilers are coming off of a wild one versus the Habs on Thursday. It ended up being settled in the shootout (5-4 final). The Leafs have won a couple in a row, which has given them a 7 point lead on Edmonton with 15 games remaining for both teams. A regulation loss tonight could all but seal the deal on 30th overall place for the Oilers.

Prediction 3-2 OT win for Edmonton.

Injury update…

By , March 12, 2010 9:56 am

D Ryan Whitney took a shot off the inside of his right knee late in the second period, hobbled off the ice and did not return for the third. He’ll be X-rayed and evaluated Friday. Ethan Moreau’s stiff neck is getting better, but he still sat out Thursday night. Patrick O’Sullivan lost the nail on his left ring finger after a first period slash Tuesday against Ottawa, but it’s not broken. He might re-join the team sometime on this four-game trip. – Edmonton Sun

PRE-GAME RANT

Well, so far we’ve got the Habs number this season, although we’ve only played them once…  It was way back on October 10th, when the Oil were healthy and the fans were excited.  A 3-2 win for the home team.  My oh my how the times have changed.  We’re heading into Montreal to play against a team that appears to be coming together at the right time for a playoff push.  Winners of 4 of their last 5, they’re probably looking forward to this match up more than we are.  This is Montreal’s last game against a Western opponent, so their playoff chances look good.  In the pipes Deslauriers has looked a lot more comfortable lately, but some of my dodgy sources are reporting Dubnyk will get the start tonight.  For the Oil, Minard has been called up and will likely see some action as Moreau is questionable, and O’Sullivan is hanging out at home.
