First, how come there's at least 5-6 guys on here that regularly blog for the Flames but the oiler fans are only passionate enough to comment on other people's blogs?? Just saying... I get that you guys got Hall and are making some good moves but one of you wrote on Vetter's blog about the cup... c'mon!!
Okay so everyone is all thinking Sutter is all going insane like he was the star of the Shining, Jokinen breaking down a door with an axe yelling "Joki's BACK!!" but it's not that bad. Just breath in and hear me out.
Jokinen is coming off a Horrible year, he got 50 points in a horrible year, that is a really good year for a lot of hockey players. For instance the worst team in hockey, the Oilers, they only had one player eclipse that mark and that was Penner. (yeah I just put that in there for fun)
Let me put it another way that doesn't involve the worst team in hockey, the oilers. (yeah I just put that in there for fun, seriously though enjoy your jean jackets)
Hossa, Cammellleri, Frolov, J. Staal, Erat and many more players we would be delighted over having at 3 million on our favourite team all got right around 50 points last year, so thinking it was a horrible year for him...it's not that bad.
He's talented. He's big. He can Score. Contrary to popular belief the team and team mates wanted him back.
Tangauy setting him up AND Igninla actually makes me think that could be a great line, two selfish type scorers and one guy that is a great passer...
Sutter apologized to Jokinen in a way saying he never should have traded him FYI.
Tanguay- At 1.7 he;s actually kind of pricey for what he did last year but the years before it he was killing it, Tanguay has huge upside and the line with him Jarome and Langkow actually made incredible plays. Let's hope for a revival, if not he's getting paid 1.7 this year and we'll never have to see him again.
The Flames signed two guys as well in Ivanans and Jackman. If you like fights Ivanans is your guy, he's a total a$$ kicker, will never score or really even try, he's a true goon.
The joke today was that Oliwa was not available...
Jackman (Tim) is very similar but maybe more of an AHL tough guy, this might not be a one way signing however I can't confirm that right now.
Best Tweet of the day from Kypreos who tweeted Sutter signed Ivanans to walk him to his car.
Calgary, in case anyone was wondering, is carrying too many players now or at least as many as they possibly need. I count 12 forwards and 8 d if they sign White (Kronvall is a one way contract).
I don't expect Sutter is done, I just don't think it will be today.
The call to Boston we all thought was for Savard wasn't, but there was a call.
