Olympic Break Thoughts No. 3: Farewell, Sex Panther

Good riddance, Olli Jokinen. I'm sure you're a lovely person, but I liked nothing about your game but your occasional shootout prowess and goofy involvement in post-whistle scrums.

Here's how bad it was for me with you: A year ago, I started, then aborted, a list of my Top 10 and Bottom 10 Flames of all-time. (Perhaps one day I'll actually finish that list.) It's been modified, and let's just say, if it wasn't for a Cro-Magnon Man from Sudbury, you'd be No. 1.

Nothing else left to say, other than: Matthew Lombardi and a first-rounder for Ales Kotalik and Chris Higgins. Nice trade, Darryl.

What can I say, he may be from another planet and generally a useless experiment by Daz, but I'm cheering for Suomi this afternoon. I'd rather see Hagman dump a few in the net, but I'll take a few from the Sex Panther if that's all I can get.

And of course, go Kipper! How do you like him wearing his Flames helmet at the games? Red looks good with those Finnish uni's.

fyi, duncan, it's lombo, prust, prust, vandermeer, and a first rounder for kotalik and higgins.

get it straight.

also ? when you say olli is fighting for #1 spot, i presume you mean on the "worst flames of alltime" list. and i also wonder if it's loob or lanny who tops the "best flames" one. ;)

This may be my favorite post of the Duncan series yet.

Yes, "danmean" — it is on the "worst" list and I suppose your interest in the best list means the Duncan series might continue with those countdowns.

And, you're right: I'll get that trade straight from now on.

Actually, I think the trade is still just Prust once, because we did get him back when Vandermeer went over.

...yeah but we lost him again when we sent him and olli to NYR.
