The most prestigious cup in hockey...

Tonight the Oilers take part in the Joey Moss Cup at Rexall Place at 7:00PM. This is one of my favorite events the Oilers host. Joey moss has served 25 years with the Oilers and I don’t have to tell anyone just how big of an icon he has been for us.

The Oilers cut their roster down by 20 players yesterday, so here are the teams:

Team Blue

4 Hall – 10 Horcoff – 83 Hemsky
67-Brule – 16 Fraser – 57 McDonald
56 Hartikainen – 54 Vande Velde – 25 Ondrus
85 Reddox – 20 Moran – 53 Abney

5 Smid – 26 Foster
45 Belle – 49 Peckham
77 Gilbert – 39 Motin

40 Dubnyk
38 Deslauriers

Team White

27 Penner – 89 Gagner – 14 Eberle
91 Paajarvi – 13 Cogliano – 12 Giroux
36 Stewart – 42 O’Marra – 46 Stortini
28 Jones – 68 Pitlick – 23 Omark

6 Whitney – 58 Petry
37 Petiot – 2 Vandermeer
41 Chorney – 48 Plante

30 Roy
29 Gerber

I like the idea of trying out Hall with Horcoff and Hemsky, as that has been a trio that many of us have penciled in our mock-lineups. The same goes for Penner Gagner and Eberle, for me. I think Penner is the perfect complement for those two. I’m also interested to see a pairing of Whitney and Petry together and anxious to see Petry live. We’ll also get a taste of things likely to come in a Smid – Foster pairing.

*-I’ll give a slight edge to Team White, even though Hemsky is on Team Blue. It should be a good game though.

Who do you folks think will win this thing tonight? (voting now works on all themes, btw..)

Who will win tonight's Joey Moss Cup?

    Hall is scratched tomorrow folks, per Jason Gregor.

    I’m guessing maybe because it’s against a divisional team and they don’t want to risk injury.

    I’m calling it now… Reddox makes the team. If Omark makes the team, then I am thinking perhaps a guy like Jones is cut. Reddox is an unreal competitor. The one thing we never saw from him before? He was bodying guys off the puck that were a lot bigger than him – Plante, Foster.. others..

    It’s just a meaningless game, but he showed big hustle and I thought he’s always showed that. Last year’s injury was a tough break and he deserves to stay on the roster longer, as far as bubble guys are concerned.

    Some more interesting notes per Gregor:

    The players who will play in Vancouver tomorrow will skate at nine at Rexall Place. Hall will not play in Vancouver, which shouldn’t surprise anyone. No way were the Oilers going to let him play his first game v. an NHL team on the road especially when Thursday’s game is live on TSN.

    I do know that Horcoff will centre Eberle and Giroux tomorrow. Dubnyk and Gerber will be the goalies. We will find out the rest of the lineup tomorrow morning.

    Nikolai Khabibulin is close to playing. Right now it seems more mental than physical for him. Renney will see how Khabibulin feels Thursday morning before making a decision on when he plays. He might wait a few more days before putting him in between the pipes.

    Horcoff and Hall seemed to play well together, now let’s see if Horcoff can help Eberle out.

    Oh, forgot about Giroux… he is a bit of a wild card.. he kept up just fine and didn’t seem to look bad out there, from what I saw. Will be interested in seeing him some more.
