So last game we saw Andrew Cogliano’s return… now we get to see Dustin Penner… however this isn’t his first game back to Edmonton. It is, however, his first game back since the pancake injury. If you saw the lady who was responsible for the delicious stack, you might not be so critical. I can also say that Dustin Penner’s “fat” is still in better shape than me.. so I’d never honestly be critical of the guy’s weight/shape. I just love a good laugh and glad he is taking it in stride and poking fun at himself.
Anyways, the Oilers are in a world of hurt right now, sliding down the standings… they’re running out of spots to slide down to. Currently, only the team that beat them 5-0 (Anaheim Ducks) and the Columbus Blue Jackets sit below them in the standings. The Ducks are just one point behind. Let’s be honest… when the season started, no one expected the Oilers would be near the top of the standings like they were… however this has been a monumental collapse to their season and is incredibly disappointing. There are cries for a few heads out in Oilersland from Renney to Tambellini. I’m not willing to give up on Renney, but the other fellow seems to be either still in the tear-it-down phase, or is horrible at reacting to troubled times here and plugging holes.
No word on the lineup just yet, so I’ll post the same as last game for now and modify it later.
Taylor Hall – Sam Gagner – Ales Hemsky
Lander – Shawn Horcoff – Ryan Jones
Ryan Smyth – Ryan O’Marra – Magnus Paajarvi
Darcy Hordichuk – Josh Green – Ben Eager
Ladislav Smid – Jeff Petry
Theo Peckham – Corey Potter
Andy Sutton – Colten Teubert
