short but sweet

i will not predict the outcome of the flames v. detroit series. i will only point out the following:

1. kipper is gonna have a really hard time dealing with bertuzzi, if he's healthy.

2. if regehr is hurt, i think we will have alot of trouble containing their offense (everyone talks about datsyuk & zetterberg, but their secondary scorers --guys like robert lang-- can be absolutely lethal as well).

3. the wings have seven swedes on their active roster. that's seven huseliai. seven loobs. seven forsbergs... watchout for the finesse plays (YOU GOT THAT, ZYUZIN !!??).


i have a bad feeling that our phaneuf/hamrlik, stuart/warrener, hale/zyuzin combos (cause, obviously, playfair prefers the hot & cold russian over the young & steady gio) will get drastically outplayed in game one. if this series goes even-stevens at one game apiece, i think calgary will have a chance to rein it in in 6 or 7. providing, of course, that sutter's in the building to offer some stern words. i don't think this team is coached well enough to win a series...

i think this is the first time maggie the monkey has gone against the flames... let's prove her wrong...

The pluralizing of Huselius? AWESOME.

He just had a kid, maybe an early bloomer?

Regehr: I'm worried about containment without him, too. My biggest worry going into the series. actually.

I think you've accurately pinpointed our weak spots for sure.

No mention of the tremendous impact of Tony Amonte?

Apparently Huselius has black hair as well...
