Shrapnel - 2/12 Edition

In this edition of Shrapnel: Lines for tonight, we're talkin' 'bout practice, fantasy leagues, and more!
Lets do this.

BlueJackets XTRA:

Probable lineups for tonight:



With each passing day, I'm more and more impressed with Claude Noel and his efforts to get this team to where it needs to be. He's a teacher of the game, and he wants his players to be students of the game.



Even practices are more lively than earlier in the year under Coach Noel.



Talking "Noelisms", the Sedin twins Tomax, and Xamot. Err, I mean Daniel and Henrik, and Jody Shelley - play-by-play man?


Yahoo! Sports:

Hey remember that time NBC decided to pass on airing the US/Canada Olympic game to dancing (what?). I'm not kidding. That. Just. Happened.

Edmonton finally snapped a franchise worst 11-game road streak. Hey Oilers, ever thought of getting a new coach? Its worked out well for us so far.

Taking part in any fantasy leagues? As if we didn't know already, two of our guys are on fire right now. Be sure to pick them up if you haven't already.


Who says grown men can't dream? Our very own Jan Hejda is realizing his next big dream by playing in Vancouver this month.


Quote of the day:

"They've been on the road a long time now, so there is some sympathy there that I don't feel for them. They'll be tired."

- Claude Noel talking about our opponents tonight, the Vancouver Canucks

Fight of the night:

Sharks LW Ryane Clowe v. Red Wings D Johnathan Ericcson
