The Edmonton Oilers are scratching Nikita Nikitin in favor of Keith Aulie against the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday.
The $4.5 million per year defenseman has been disappointing so far, to say the least. There are some rumors that his back continues to bother him after having spasms earlier this year, but either way, it's disastrous for a team hurting this badly defensively to sit a guy who's getting paid so much. Tonight is a test for the ailing Oilers. Nov 22 - 1:47 PM
