Ryan Nugent-Hopkins just walked out of the building and left in truck.Not feeling well, out tonite.— Ryan Rishaug (@TSNRyanRishaug) March 20, 2013
With Hopkins out, and the Oilers already short of centres, Ralph Krueger has his work cut out for him in constructing an effective lineup. Ryan Smyth is already playing out of position at centre between Mike Brown and Lennart Petrell. That leaves Lennart Petrell as Krueger's only option at centre, unless he moves Taylor Hall into the middle and replaces Smyth with Petrell and ices a lineup something like this:
Mike Brown - Lennart Petrell - Teemu Hartikainen
The Oilers are in a tough spot, to be sure, especially after passing on Adam Hall via the waiver wire last week. Eric Belanger is not scheduled to come back, but might the Oilers rush him back with just two centres on the roster?
