I think that's more of a list of Sharks players playing than actual lines. The Canucks lines are reportedly set as indicated.

Preseason.....The taste of hockey after a long summer. It's not the same as the regular season, but can be just - as or more entertaining. These games can get uglier and more feisty than regular season games. Expect about 3 fights. That's how it works.

John Tortorella will not be behind the bench. He will watch from above as his assistant coaches man the bench. Some find that strange, or wrong. Not me. I find it different therefore cool.

As for all this jabber about Torts getting ticked about cell phones going off during his interviews...shut the _____ up!

Focus on the rest of the interview. There you will see a man who is putting a hell of a lot of thought into his interviews. He's not giving BS pad answers. He is carefully and methodically explaining things. Embrace that and turn off the damned cell phones! I like this guy. We need to get him in one of our "Get Off My Lawn" posts.

As for the Canucks lines...interesting how Horvat gets the goon line. Maybe he'll make Sestito and Weise better. I think I am anticipating seeing the 3rd and 4th Canucks lines listed above. Go Gaunce go! Archibald and Hamill must impress here. They are not the fresh-faced kids anymore. And of course, I'll be watching Eddie Lack closely. He needs to blow away the coaching staff.

Missy's game thread will go up at 6:30 PST.

GO CANUCKS GO!
