not sure if you guys know this but i love the scandies.
oh. you DO know ?
right. cause i can't stop talking about 'em.... ever.
i really thought kimmo timonen would look über-sexy in a flaming C... but not sexy in the way that forsberg would look sexy or lundqvist would look sexy. i thought he'd look sexy in the way that a bonafide #1 defensman would look, paired with (say....) dion phaneuf out there on the flames blueline. the way hamrlik kinda did (although, i must admit, hammer was kinda sexy in the other way, too).
so today i hear that nashville's traded him to the flyers and i am a little gutted inside. orange is not the right colour for our boy timmo. and now i have to scan the list of free agents and note who's left that might fill the spots presumeably vacated by #4 and andrew ference (let's face it. brad stuart didn't work out. there's a gaping hole in ference's roster spot and all of us know it).
i think we're better off making a trade. for who ? no idea. but let's get tömi mäki some icetime somewhere.
