Taylor Hall injury update… er.. updated.

Word from Gene Principe is that he’ll be out for 7-10 days with that shoulder injury. Not too bad, all things considered. But sometimes these things can be tough to assess too, so who knows.

UPDATE: Ok, now they’re saying 2-4 weeks. Well, poop. Damn it, Gene.

Sam Gagner injury update…

Depending on who you listen to from the mainstream media,…. sounds like Gagner’s ankle sprain is higher up, which is bad, but it’s not the dreaded “high ankle sprain”. Renney says it’s more of a mid-ankle sprain and Gagner is out week-to-week.

Hemsky done for the season…

Hemsky - Injured on a Handzus hit from behind - will require season-ending surgery

So, with Hemsky out, the Oilers faced the number 1 San Jose Sharks and came out ok, losing 5-4 in the shootout. All things considered, that’s pretty damn good. They got there on great games by Potulny, Brule, Cogliano, Penner and a few others.

So that said, do the Oilers have it in them to be competitive? They will need some guys to step up to do so… will it be Potulny and Brule? Or will it be someone else? Should Tambellini go out and sign some help? He has stated already that he’s going to wait and see for now how these guys can handle things (how many times have we heard that line?). Gotta give him one thing.. he’s a patient GM.

Weigh in, in the comments.
