[Open Thread] Game One: San Jose Sharks at Edmonton Oilers
So drop the puck already!
Poor Devin Setoguchi. All set to make his NHL debut in front of family and friends... and he's out with an ankle injury. Jeremy Roenick will fill in for him at right wing on the Milan Michalek - Torrey Mitchell line. Mitchell will be making his NHL debut this evening.
As to the Oilers, other than being the unofficial farm club for assorted Eastern Conference teams, have they done much of anything to improve themselves from last year? Other than overspend for Dustin Penner, that is. Still, there's no doubt they'll play hard and physical.
Like I said -- drop the puck already!
