What a magnificent day in Edmonton. The sun is shining, the Oilers play the Rangers this evening and oh what's that? It's Jason Gregor's birthday. We can't imagine how old he is, but short of cutting him in half and counting his rings we will estimate that today marks the start of his 52nd year on Earth. Happy Birthday!

Sam Gagner will play the right wing with Eric Belanger and Magnus Paajarvi tonight. It will be Gagner's first game since March 9th, and while he did dress v. Calgary in the preseason, it has been over seven months since he felt the pace of regular season action.
Gagner is fired up to play and isn't concerned about playing the wing.

Who would you sit out and why?

Coaches preaching defence-first hockey to their players aren't the exception, they're the rule. Tom Renney of the Edmonton Oilers isn't different or odd or out in left field by insisting on that approach.
