All Things Flaming C
After Calgary’s thorough thrashing of the les habitants last evening, I weighed the options of perhaps accommodating our francais amis with a Flaming C edition du French. While I can’t risk the chance of losing any more readers, I wisely chose against it. Coupling that with little to no French writing skills (some may argue my English is supbar as well) it was deemed prudent to stick to what I know best, that the Flames of Calgary are indeed a force to be reckoned with.
One can surmise that league parity is in full swing. The Calgary Flames have finished in second place for both of their matches to start the 2011-2012 season. While we all know how deep and talented this year’s edition is, the Flaming C have struggled in achieving 60 minutes of consistent play, thru 120 minutes of regulation.
Well its that time of year folks…fantasy hockey pools are drafting as we speak. While I needn’t tell you the virtues of Stamkos, Ovechkin, and Jagr, lets help you Flame fans analyze the strengths of your team of destiny. While stats and past performance may show some merit, hunches and solid late round picks will get you the big bucks come April. Or as the Flames management calls it-, “Banner raising season”
Dear Lanny MacDonald Bobble Head Seekers:
The Great J-Feast has been molding his squad of veterans and future veterans into something beautiful.
Dearest Non-Oiler Fans:
Your Flaming C brass had to make some tough decisions Wednesday that resulted in 19 players being reassigned to Junior, or to Abbotsford.
Dearest Flames Fans:
Its time to discuss the state of the future of your Flaming Horses, via a prospect analysis. Their time may be coming to don C of Flame, hopefully sooner than later.
I was really hoping to wait and save this mind dump for a more opportune time. That time being after the 1st game of the year and the steaming pile of Oil is doing their best to secure the 2012 1st overall selection. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to differentiate a Calgary Flames fan from an Edmonton Oiler fan. Please let me give the causal observer a run down on the differences.
