My outstanding memory of the Flames is Noodles (McLennan) going all Paul Bunyan on Mule in the 2009 playoffs. Perhaps that was when he got the stuffing knocked out of him and he ain't been the same since.
Come to think of it, I feel like doing the same thing, most nights.
Im just happy Kenny is making moves that are positive. They arent the best moves ever, but they appear to be ones that will help us right now.
Letting Brunner/Flip/Cleary walk and adding Alfredsson/Weiss/Tatar in their spots is a HUGE upgrade. Alfredsson played 47 games last year and will play hard for us when its cup time. Weiss is a solid 75-80 game guy, usually. And Tatar is ready to jizz all over the NHL. I hope we keep Brunner and find a way to get Bert and Sammy permanently removed from our roster, but I wont cry if we have to wait another year to get rid of tweedle dee and tweedle dum.
Perron dropped like a sack of bricks knowing he was going to the box for boarding, I don't even think the game misconduct was necessary, much less a suspension. I'd prefer Franzen stick up for himself as opposed to the usual...
