Gilbert Brule debuts with Oilers

Is this the new kid line?

By debut we're not talking about an 18 year old girls family-run birthday party. We're talking about the 4th most talked-about Oiler pickup in the off season behind Cole, Visnovsky, and MacIntyre. We're talking about Gilbert Brule here, people.

I'd imagine MacTavish has the sense not to break up the Schremp-Cogliano-Pouliot line, since it's outperforming most of our other lines and with Pouliot looking like a real NHL player, it can't be bad for anyone.

Either Strudwick stays on LW or Gilbert Brule draws in. Brule should draws in unless Smid suffered a concussion on the Stoll hit... still, since Liam Reddox looks better on LW than he did centering a line with Strudwick and Stortini, I'd imagine Brule gets the call.

Reddox-Brule-Stortini (or Strudwick)

D-pairings stay the same

Roloson (I'd imagine he gets the start)

The Oilers always play well against the Sharks though this time around the Sharks are the #1 team in the NHL for their first matchup this season.

Fingers-crossed that the Oilers pull out of this one for the betterment of the team.
