Ryan Whitney vented after being named a healthy scratch on Tuesday, but he isn't requesting a trade.
It was Whitney's second straight game in the press box. "I thought after the last game I'd be in the lineup, but I'm not," Whitney said. "I'm very frustrated. I want to play. We got outshot 40-14 and I'm not playing, so I think that shows where their thoughts are. I don't think (Krueger) cares who you are. He wants to win. Whatever he thinks is the best lineup is the one he's going to play." Whitney emphasized that he still likes it in Edmonton, even though "they're paying me a lot of money and I'm not playing." Edmonton lost on Tuesday, so Whitney might get a chance to leave coach Ralph Krueger's doghouse on Saturday.
