The Oilers Win! The Oilers Win! Good thing Tambellini let them know he doesn’t like losing. Although in all fairness its sounds like a “Do what I say, not what I do” type deal. If you don’t like losing bud, make the team better.
In other news scouts are at our games. Oh, and Sportsnet forgot how to broadcast hockey.
In other league news, the Isles and Pens had a couple shit shows (although I may have mentioned the first one last week). Bunch of suspensions handed down. Boston and Montreal also had a great game where people got beat up, and lots of goals were scored. Whats with the huge scoring games now? Lots of games going to double digit goals (combining the two scores).
Trades have been happening lately too, much to the chagrin of the networks who planned an entire day around it. Mike Fisher to Nashville, Chris Kelly to Boston, Aaron Varos to the laffs, Beauchemin to the Ducks, Versteeg to the Flyers. Lots of talk about Penner and Hemsky being traded too, but I hope Tambellini knows better than to do that.
Thrashers extend Byfuglien, giving him 5.2 mil per for 5 years. Forsburg returned, and then retired. Heritage Classic Sunday…it’ll be neat, but less awesome than ours. But the Barons will be playing there the Friday before against the lames AHL team, and both of them are in the battle for 8th in the conference so that should be interesting. Not sure if its televised though.
