Your opening day top left wing? - Dale MacMillan

No Richards, no Lundqvist, and no Nash. This game is chock full o' nuclear deterrents. Well, at least there's Ben Eager.

The opposing view: Blueshirt Banter

Top Story: The roster is starting to shape up. Is this Ryan Jones' last chance to hold on to a roster spot before the start of the regular season? The Rangers are dressing three troublemakers, yet the re-reacquired 'nuclear deterrent' isn't yet on tonight's roster. Fear not, Ben Eager is there. (weeps softly)

Hope Taylor Hall reeeeeally likes playing centre.

The Oilers are saying:

"He's in the mix, he's fighting for a spot."

--Oilers coach Dallas Eakins on Ryan Jones. Jones is scheduled to play with Pitlick and Lander, so I'm not sure how much fighting for a spot he'll be doing.

The Opponent is saying:

"It's unfortunate that Derek (Stepan) has decided to listen to his agent"

--Rangers GM Glen Sather on current Rangers holdout Derek Stepan.

The Rangers currently have 2.183M in available cap. Lots of luck, Glen.
