This move comes on the heals of this tweet from Ryan Rishaug.
Eakins used the term "resetting the player" today. He’s used that before when referring to scratching a player. Message sending time ?— Ryan Rishaug (@TSNRyanRishaug) December 4, 2013
Obviously what Eakins' meant by resetting the player was to shuffle things up to find something that works. It's interesting that Will Acton has finally been moved off of the Oilers roster. The fact that the Oilers have recalled Anton Lander could also mean a healthy scratch of another center if Boyd Gordon is ready to play.
I guess we'll see.
