Ralph Krueger is ready to coach and Oiler players are ready to make mistakes. If the idiots in the counting room can get their act together we could be rolling our eyes by first snowfall.
Krueger’s availability to the media gives us another chance to sift through the grey matter and think about what the new coach might do with the lineup. Terry Jones has stories on Krueger here and here.
The line I’m most interested in right now is this one:
- Krueger:“I look at the lineup every day. I do like to look at the line-up. I do a lot of thinking looking at the line-up. Different line combinations. Defensive pairings. And I go through the worst case scenarios all the time.”
Well Ralph, we like to do that too! I’ll tell you what, we’ll go first. We’ll post our lineups and then you can post yours in the comments section. When you do, I’ll put them inside the blogpost. That way we can begin the dialogue that will conclude with your agreement that Lennart Petrell–despite being Finnish–shouldn’t be on the 23-man roster.
I’ll start. C-L-R, LD-RD.
- Extras: Eager, Hordichuk
- Whitney-Schultz the younger
- Schultz the elder-Sutton
Please post your lineups in the comments section as soon as possible, Ralph may want to incorporate some ideas onto his napkin.
