The opposing view: Nucks Misconduct

Top Story: How many roster spots are still available? Anton Belov will see his first action in an NHL game tonight. Jujhar Khaira will be the third centre, the fourth line of Jones-Acton-Brown will be set out to prove...something. Edmonton native Ty Rimmer will dress for his first pro game tonight, and will likely see some ice time during the second half of the game.

The Oilers are saying:

"It's surreal, I grew up watching the Oilers and Hockey Night in Canada... I don't even have words for this."

--Oilers Goaltender and Edmontonian Ty Rimmer on getting his first pro action tonight. If he grew up watching the Oilers like he says he did, this ought not to be the first time he's been speechless.
