The opposing view: The Cannon

Top Story: The Blue Jackets are riding a heater from Sergei Bobrovsky and are the second-hottest team in the league behind the Penguins. The Jackets are 6-1-3 in their last 10 and threatening to make the playoffs for the second time in their history. Edmonton is trying to trade Ales Hemsky.

The Oilers are saying:

"If we can get something that will help us without totally destroying the core of young players we’re going to grow and win with for a long time, of course we’ll look at it. But it has to make sense."

--Steve Tambellini, on the trade deadline.

He didn't rule out partial destruction.

The Opponent is saying:

Dubinsky is still out, meaning things are just a bit easier for the Oilers tonight.

Key matchup: The Oilers need to generate some form of possession and tilt the ice. They can't continue to get shelled at even strength and have a chance.
