Barons Opening Night And Additional Shots From The Rafters

Things that are going around my gourd at the moment:

  • I ordered tonight’s game between the OKC Barons and the Lake Erie Monsters.  It cost me about $7.  I’ve heard some good, some bad, and some very bad about the AHL Live service, so I’m going to give it a whirl tonight and see where it takes me after the game.  Expect a review of sorts.
  • Weird?  No NHL hockey.  No Oilers, no pre-gaming, if you catch my drift.  Weirder?  Seeing Nugent-Hopkins wearing the number 18.  Even weirder still?  Seeing Eberle in the number 7.
  • What do the lines look like?  Good question.  Over to the Barons Business Desk at Tend The Farm, with your headline news correspondent Neal!  Neal’s got a pretty good grip on things.
  • YES, that’s Dane Byers sporting the A.
  • Assuming there’s a season-long lockout, here are my top five point predictors for your Oklahoma City Barons…
  1. Taylor Hall (65 GP), 36-58-94
  2. Jordan Eberle (72 GP), 28-63-91
  3. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins – (73 GP), 40-47-77
  4. Teemu Hartikainen – (66 GP), 26-30-56
  5. Magnus Paajarvi – 70 GP, 19-36-55

I picked these numbers from the sky.  If I hit one, I win a prize.

Catch us on Twitter tonight as we get the closest thing to NHL hockey as we can.
