With an effort last night that can only be described as "Worse that anything I have squiged out of my Ass", the Calgary Flames managed to drop their fifth game in a row last night 9-0.
I SAID NINE NOTHING!! A shut out vs nine goals.
This is disgusting!! I don't really even know what to say about it. I didn't manage to watch the game live due to prior engagements, but using my Game Center Live account and Sports Center I managed to catch more then enough of the game to form an opinion. What a piece!!! My dog ate a chocolate orange this week (in case you don't know dogs are NOT supposed to eat Chocolate) and what came out of him hours later resembled Napalm and Diarrhea. Now for perspective, I would rather watch that come out of my dogs ass then watch the game that took place last night.
Credit where its due
Buttler you assclown you had a -7.....
T.J. Brodie played 24 minutes and ended the game 0 very impressive!!
I did predict the Flames "would get squashed like the annoying mosquito they are", but never in my wildest dreams would I have seen this 9-0 coming.
To think that Iginla has 499 career goals and is 1 goal away from hitting 500 and they let something like happen. I don't know about you but I don't want to think about 9 goals against when I talk about one of the greatest team captains in history getting his 500th goal. I for one am glad he didn't score last night because something that special should take place at home and be part of a great victory.
So what are we left to do here? Everyone has an opinion on what is wrong with this team.
1) Upper management and their mentality!
Ken King and friends - Lots of people have your number
2) The Coach
Brent Sutter - I feel like you sir are playing on borrowed time
Many people feel the Flames have never bought into the system or ever clicked.The rest of them are considered too old.
Well wake-up call many of you WILL be shipped out this year, hope you enjoyed &*(ing around.
4) Lack of Players
Iginla has never had his Number 1 Center to dominate with.
Look at our D, Buttler is being played as part of our #1 pairing..
Since the start of today, there have been rumors (as always) flying around surrounding Calgary. I personally can't back them up but you must think somethings gotta give..
Maybe this is the first move in a series, but Calgary traded defense-man Brendan Mikkelson for center-man Blair Jones of the Tampa bay Lightning. I guess this is a depth move? I thought we had enough 4th liners already but here we go again. Maybe Horak gets sent down to the AHL to tighten up his game further in preparation for next year. Calgary has already announced they have reassigned Ivanans to Abbotsford.
So here it is, have we passed the point of no return? Will we ship out everyone who doesn't care (Cough Cough Bourque)? Will the coaching or upper management get fired? Things are looking Glum here in cow town, and I foresee some definite fall out from this. We could very likely see a few players shipped now and a few more come trade deadline. It was an OK ride while it lasted but if nothing else at least we might have a chance to get better.
Now let us pray Dear 8 pounds 6 ounce baby Jesus, please allow our captain Iginla to score his 500th goal at home and allow us keep it sacred.
*** Supposed rumor Flames sent a trade offer for Derrick Brassard ***
Guess we will see......
