Sven Baertschi to Zee Rescue?

The desperate disease requires a dangerous remedy- Guy Fawkes, 1605. Please be careful when attributing this quote as some may say you have a potty mouth. The Flaming C have recalled the exciting Sven Baertschi from Portland on an emergency basis. Tim Jackman is the most recent fallen warrior as he sustained a malady against les Habitants Tuesday night. Calgary held on to a 5-4 victory but were felled with another roster void. As the number of Abbotsford recalls is kept to a certain level, the summoning of the Winter Hawk stud seems like a no-brainer.

Sir Sven of Langenthal has had a phenomonal 2nd season in the ‘Dub as his 94 points in 47 games will attest. I will challenge you all to crunch the numbers on how many that is per game. His speed and virgin excitement should bring an interesting dynamic angle to the Winnipeg Jet’s 1st visit to town since 1996.There’s talk that Doug Smail and Morris Lukowich will be in the house when the Jet’s come knocking. Both teams are in bitter battles for survival in their perspective conferences and it’ll be playoff-like atmosphere for the Swiss youngster. The Flaming faithful had the pleasure of seeing a few preseason games starring the youngster, and most games he was their most electrifying participant. As the decision to send him back to the Canadian Junior ranks was made, the eye was on the future which apparently is now. His stay will most likely be short, but hopefully fruitful.

The march towards the playoffs stands ever-so-tight. 7th and 11th are divided by 3 points. Sadly the Flambe are sitting at the bottom of that equation. A slew of victories would be nice, but so would world peace. If only the boys could tighten up in their own end a little better after getting those leads! To wit- “It’s better to led then lost, than to never lead” -Famous Bassano historian.

8 men down and counting,
