It's Oil Country

GretzkyEDMONTON -- First post of the day is coming a little late, but the drive from Calgary to Edmonton is long and wireless internet is scarce.

Went to the morning skate at University of Calgary this morning, not much news to offer. Word is, Tomas Vokoun may not start tonight as expected, Chris Beckford-Tseu (the likely starter in Rochester this season) likely starting. If Chris B-T starts, Craig Anderson will be the backup.

Asked Pete if Tomas was hurt and he said no; he's just being careful with so many games in so many nights. And I think he wants Tomas to start in Montreal, so if Tomas doesn't go tonight, he could go Thursday in Edmonton, then go again Sunday. Or Friday and Sunday. Whatever.

-- As promised, will be going LIVE! from Rexall Place tonight. Probably online around 8:15 MiamiTime. The drive wasn't very condusive to work, so I have plenty to do, so I may be a bit slower. Would be good to see everyone back online like last night. That was a fun run.
