The opposing view: Arctic Ice Hockey

Top Story: The Oilers are missing their best two centres. The Oilers just claimed the worst forward in the league on waivers. The Oilers' GM is talking about Darnell Nurse working himself "into the equation" on defense. The Oilers' GM likes Mark Arcobello's game - Arcobello has been invisible in pre-season. The Oilers could start the regular season with Hall - Gordon - Lander - Arcobello down the middle. Team-paid "media members" are talking about Mike Brown and Steve MacIntyre on the fourth line while Ben Eager plays on the third line.

Everything is normal in Edmonton.

The Oilers are saying:

"He is what he is"

--Craig MacTavish on Steve MacIntyre.

He is a waste of a roster spot.

The Opponent is saying:

This is the most wrong little girl in the world. Someone needs to break it to her that Ondrej Pavelec is not good.

Expected Lineups:

via @EdmontonOilers

Linus Omark - Boyd Gordon - Nail Yakupov
Jesse Joensuu - Mark Arcobello - Tyler Pitlick
Ryan Jones - Anton Lander - Ryan Hamilton
Ben Eager - Keith Acton - Mike Brown

Andrew Ference - Anton Belov
Ladislav Smid - Philip Larsen
Nick Schultz - Taylor Fedun

Key matchup: Any goon versus any skill player. If an Oiler gets hurt, we might see Jon Jones in an Oilers sweater.
