I'd much prefer this over Nucks/Ducks

TSNRyanRishaug: Looks like Oilers will open in Vancouver then return home for a pair of games.

More like a report.

But what's the big deal with who they face on opening night anyways?

I'd love to play the Oilers opening night and show RNH, Hall, and Schultz who really runs this division

I believe Vancouver still plays Anaheim on Saturday, and plays Edmonton sunday? I may be wrong.

• The Oilers will not play on opening night, next Saturday, January 19. The complete lack of interlocking games between conferences effectively splits the NHL into two 15-team leagues, meaning a minimum of one team from each conference will always be idle even on the busiest days. Next Saturday that will be Edmonton in the west.
• The Oil thus play their 48 games in 98 days, virtually a game every other day.

• Edmonton opens in Vancouver next Sunday, and closes with a home game against those same Canucks on April 27.

I hope not, they shouldn't score more than 2 on us. I like our 3-2 wins 2-1 wins. Good 2 way patient hockey

As much as I hate to say it the canucks will probably lose this game. Most of edmonton has been playing hockey for half a season already.

Lappys down to 212 from his 220 at the end of the summer, said that he's been working with a Cirque du Soleil nutritionist. He said that he can't afford to adjust to the new weight during the season, if there was a preseason then he'd keep it, but there wasn't so he dropped about 10 lbs.

Still good that he has more muscle mass though.

Canucks are going to struggle out the gate for sure. We've got a team with maybe 2 or 3 players who are in game-shape and a goalie who has just been bombed out in Europe up against a team of young, fresh kids, most of whom have been playing all season and are full of confidence.

It'll take us at least 10-15 games before we really get into our groove, whereas the Oilers will start strong and die out over the last half of the season.

If Lappy really put on 15 pounds of muscle, I wish the NHL would ask for a urine sample. How the heck can a pro athlete (who's already in great shape by "definition" of pro athlete), put on 15 pounds of muscle between seasons, even if this season if a few months late.

I could work out and eat my butt of for 5 hours a day and not put on 15 pounds of muscle.

Lots of hard off season training maybe?

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

Lappiere gaining this weight is a testament to his hard work and dedication. When I was working in the patch I went from 195 to 247. Size large shirts would fit me like a muscle T. And yes, I had to provide urine samples. You are correct though about not putting on the weight if you worked out 5 hours a a day; you would have to work much harder than that.

props to lap for the good work ethic in his time off. hope he stays with us for a long time.
