I’m putting this up early so I don’t have to remember in the morning (which isn’t my best time), plus since I’ve missed a couple MMS’s hopefully this pic will make up for it.
Well, this is the half way point in the season. Yet another season of rebuilding, but if you listen to Tencer we’ve only been rebuilding since 2010 so I guess it’s not so bad, right? In good news, the Oilers had a pretty good showing defense wise in the world juniors (4 D played, Kelfbom won gold and was named a tourney all-star; plus Marincin, Musil and Gernat). Makes the future look a little bright, however we all know with D they don’t progress in a straight line. Just look at Smid. Started playing with us in 06/07, and just now looks like a player that is a difference maker. Hopefully we can retain a good core of young forwards for when those players start pushing their way on the team. Right now however, it’d kinda be nice to have Tambellini/Lowe bring in some help for the D group. Anyways, I digress. It is the half way point in the season, and hopefully the Oilers can put together a little tear here and win some games. Get respectable again. At least we are not getting smashed 9-0 by the Bruins right?
I have no idea what the lines will be, so I’m leaving them the same as last game.
Ryan Smyth – Anton Lander – Jordan Eberle
Taylor Hall – Sam Gagner – Ales Hemsky
Shawn Horcoff – Josh Green – Teemu Hartikainen
Ben Eager – Eric Belanger – Ryan Jones
Ladislav Smid – Jeff Petry
Andy Sutton – Corey Potter
Theo Peckham – Colten Teubert
