You’ve GOT To Be Kidding MeFebruary 25, 2009
– So Randy Carlyle thinks that Goose should be suspended for his hit on Getzlaf last night. Apparently, Goose left his feet, leading his shoulder to connect with Getzi’s nose and break it. Someone needs to point out to the Carlyle that what’s good for the Goose is also good for the Pronger, as Pronger’s done some much, much worse things and only gotten off with a slap on the wrist.
– Any hilarity derived from that is tempered by the news coming out of practice today that Lalime has La Flu and is questionnable for the game against the Hurricanes. If he can’t go, then Enroth gets his first start and Lalime is relegated to La Backup. Is this when the wheels officially start coming off the playoff wagon?
– And just to make you laugh, a column on the Sporting News site mentioned a deal in the Edmonton papers that would have Max, Goose and a pick going to the Oilers for Cogliano, Penner and a top four defenseman. The Edmonton newspaper rightly shot this deal down. Number one, I don’t think Darcy would piss on Kevin Lowe if Lowe was on fire. Number 2, Sabre Nation would riot if Gaustad was traded. (I really think he’s one of the untouchables on the roster.) Number 3, Buffalo makes out like a bandit in this deal. Kevin Lowe cannot possibly be that stupid. And there’s also the idea that if the rumor involves Buffalo and hits the media, there’s probably little to no truth to it.
– I’m not even going to touch the Timmy to Columbus and/or Vancouver rumors that are out there. I think Vancouver used up their “take a chance on a veteran” card with Sundin. And would Columbus really want to send one of their best defensemen to Buffalo for a center who’s held together with duct tape, spit and the grace of god?
