Oh how fun would it be to be at the game this morning our time (9am)...you'd get to watch a tribute to saku and teemu....be around some passionate hockey fans and probally have some reindeer on a stick
but besides this unimportant exhibition game theres some more important news......
first off kurtis foster and belesky are about ready to come back and probally will get some time today...but according to OC register for a couple games now these line combos all skated together and looks to be the opening day roster..unless IMO Guenin, Mcmillan, DSP or Gordon fall on there face or get hurt...(of all the players I think mcmillian might be in the dog house and could start the season on the bench..wtf happened mcmuffin u fell from grace)
Bobby Ryan-Ryan Getzlaf-Corey Perry
Jason Blake-Saku Koivu-Teemu Selanne
Andrew Gordon-Andrew Cogliano-Devante Smith-Pelly
Brandon McMillan-Maxime Macenauer-George Parros*
Francois Beauchemin-Cam Fowler
Luca Sbisa-Lubomir Visnovsky
Sheldon Brookbank-Nate Guenin
Gorilla head has given DSP the Cam fowler 9 game tryout...since hes underage and would have to go back to juniors after the 9th game
"He’s a young guy we’ll probably have to make a decision on after the ninth game," Coach Randy Carlyle said. "We’ll see how it goes here. He’s earned an opportunity to stay with us for now, and we’ll see where that takes us."
Cam went and ran with it last year and you can't help but root for DSP to do the same...guy must be nervous...yet confident hes been given the chance...go DSP!!..the bottom six could use the size
so to me the forwards are set for better or worse...if DSP blows it belesky or mcmuffin..or whomevers riding pine will take his place after the 10th game...
but what the heck happens with the D when you have foster and lydman back healthy? I guess a lot depends I would hope on who looks good with whom right?...what happens if vishnosky and Sbisa click really well? is it a forgone conclusion lydman and vish get back together no matter what?....u put lydman and vish back together...how do u not put the kids together then...to me i think you don't waste one of there talents on the 3rd pairing
i think we all can assume with foster and lydman..guenin and brookbank take a seat...though brookbank might hold of foster...i dunno intresting
GO SLEEK TOONS!!....GO REINDEER EATING FINNS!!..GO HONEY JACK!! AND GO DUCKS!!...
