Oilers Lines vs. Vancouver


Jacques - Horcoff - Hemsky
Penner - O'Sullivan - Comrie
Cogliano - Gagner - Reddox
MacIntyre - Brule - Stortini

Souray - Staios
Smid - Gilbert
Strudwick - Visnovsky





"We want some size in our lineup."

--Pat Quinn, on making personnel decisions.

Jacques is guaranteed a top nine spot to start the regular season, Kip Brennan is likely the new knuckles, and Stone is all but guaranteed to make the team.  The Oilers have hit the reset button on the learning curve.


"He hasn't shown enough in this camp to prove that he's ready to play at this level.  I don't think that's criticism. I think it's an assessment of fact."

--Mike Gillis, on Cody Hodgson


Vancouver's Lineup tonight:

The forwards:

Burrows - Sedin - Sedin
Raymond - Wellwood - Bernier
Glass - Hodgson - Shirokov
Hordichuk - Rypien - Pope  

The defensive pairings

Mitchell - Salo
Bieksa - Ehrhoff
O'Brien - Rome

In goal



I expect this to be an affair full of fisticuffs.
