The weary soldiers of Sutterville have been riding high as of late (5 of 6 points) but even evil bloggers and media have been creating deals and upheavals to no end. While the despondent disciples of Darryl (no longer) were on the cusp of a 3 game win streak, they managed to lose once again to Columbus after a 3-1 lead late in the 3rd. Getting a shootout-loss-point versus to the worst team in the league is parallel to scoring at the prom and finding out she is a blood relative. While both seem to be a positive, in reality it kinda sucks.
On the heals of said shootout loss, it was announced in the Flamosphere that rugged Cory Sarich has asked for a trade. While the pundits scoff at his market value and trade potential, he is still a feared body smasher with 840 career NHL games. The albatross being the $3.6 mill price tag and notion that his mobility is waning. I think this Davidson, Sask product is one of the bigger hitters in the league akin to Dion Phaneuf and Ryan Wilson. Yes Flames faithful, those are both former C of Flame employees. Feel free to look up who they have acquired in those deals. Ugh-take Gravol beforehand. (Product placement $500!)
The horrific ruptured jet injury suffered by Mark Giordano against the Blue Jackets (possibly out for the year) should keep Mr. Sarich in the everyday lineup, an employment issue no doubt for #6. Joe Piscapo Piskula has been recalled from L’Heat d’Abbotsford after a steady campaign thus far. This big dawg is 6’3” 215 lbs. Let’s hope he can provide something at the NHL level as well, and good luck @skoolz43. (Twitter lingo Mom)
The Jarome Iginla
trade rumours were debunked recently when GM J-Feast clowned bloggers and media types with their incessant conjured imminent deals involving The Magnanimous One. (Think that handle will stick?) Clearly the club doesn’t want to besmirch the legacy that Jarome has created. Perhaps this D-Sutz-like denial, a proverbial hand-bunny, is thrown out there to distract the onlookers from believing a deal is in the works. Only time will tell. The hacks and non-hacks both have opinions on what the best course for the Flames is. Hater Nation simply wants Calgary to “blow it up” We all know what really blows and it’s North of Red Deer and Southeast of Boyle. (Home of future country music recording legend Kory Wlos) Yes Edmonton fans are starting to sling the mud again as their team of over-under achievers has fallen to 10th in the conference. Standings are irrelevant according to mouth breathing Oiler colleague, it’s simply how high your team gets to draft. Odd, yet has some merit to simpletons I guess.
The talking will transfer to the ice as the Battle of Alberta continues Saturday evening and the chest pounding will follow post game. While the Flaming Horses have had more head-to-head success over the years, 39 wins, 20 losses, the atmosphere is revitalizing like a post-pisser BM. The Flames have the good fortune of leaving Edmonton immediately after the game and heading to Van City to see the league’s most expensive backup Lulu Luongo, and his Canucks teammates. 4 very important points that the Flames doth require. Enjoy the Battle of Alberta and you needn’t remind your Oiler friends that Movember is over, they sport those because they think they look good.
Go F Go,
