I think we’re going to see some very interesting names this fall on NHL training camp rosters. For the Edmonton Oilers, I’ll be looking for enforcers, backup goalies and centermen. I’m hoping new coach Dalllas Eakins can find a 4line like Jim Dowd-Boyd Devereaux-Georges Laraque–not in one training camp but at some point during the season.
It’s a damn shame Tyler Pitlick isn’t ready to go, because someone like that in the Devereaux role (with Gordon eventually being Dowd) could be gaining valuable experience right now if he could piss a drop offensively.

This blog has had a long standing rule–don’t discuss three scoring lines! However, speeds idea runs in lock step with MacT’s 2006 spring lineup–offense and 2-way play on every line! Well, you need some Horcoff’s and Peca’s and Dvorak’s and that’s for sure, this lineup has some appeal:
What say you? Do we DARE discuss three lines that can power up?
