Here's a visual projected line-up for tonight (Blue Jackets only, sorry Kings!):
Here I see another lack of effort from the Blue Jackets. Couldn't even photoshop a Blue Jackets jersey onto Chris Clark!
Versatility is a good thing, but there must be a reason that Paetsch only played 11 games in Buffalo. I don't think it was because they were overflowing with talent. Will we ever see him play defense this year (beside at practice)?
Noel must have liked the big man-little man combination of Jurcina and Russell. Hopefully Commodore continues his non-terrible performance from last game.
The Kings are expected to start the USA Olympic team's third-line goaltender, Jonathan Quick.
Former Jacket Fredrik Modin is expected to play on the third line with Michal Handzus and Wayne Simmonds.
This game is at 10:30. I am not sure I will be able to stay awake through all of it as I'm busy with school this week, but I will try. Might be hard with Murray on the top line. It isn't that I don't appreciate Murray, I do... but is the state of the team such that he is one of the top forwards? It shouldn't be.
Hey, at least the game is in HD!
