flames v. preds: pregame

here's what i know.

up until a few months ago, nashville was kinda underrated & flying under the proverbial radar. they were good, but with no "superstars," they were largely forgotten when discussing "elite" teams. sure, their jerseys are horrific, but you never really get a good look at 'em anyways, since they seem to be always blowin' past everyone. i'm not kidding, that is one heinously fast team. and who woulda thought a bunch of rejects (sullivan, tootoo, kariya) would turn into such a formidable foe...? and i haven't even STARTED on how good vokoun can be....

enter my main man peter forsberg. the yet unmarried (?????) swedish "royal". this guy brings finesse, creativity & style (not to mention the prettiest blue eyes). i'm not sure of the chemistry, yet, but i think they're lookin' pretty good. if he can stay healthy, this team might be unstoppable. [though that has nothing to do with the eyes at all, it was still worth mentionning]...

ultimately, i just like it when the flames play the preds cause it gives me an excuse to post pics. :)

sorry, what ? there's a game tonight ?
oh, whoops.

i'm not makin' any calls on this one. and i won't be able to watch or listen, since it's CMW here in toronto, and i'm making the most of it before i head back to cowtown tomorrow... brad stuart sounded AWESOME in st.lou, and the team was pressing hard for 60. if the flames keep playing the way they have in the last few outings, they might actually win this one. if they turn up "evil twin," we're fucked.

they don't call 'em the predators for nothin'...

Sounds good to me. I'm out of commission and out of town for a bit too but we'll keep in touch.
