in a statement to the calgary herald yesterday, the flames' general manager announced that the club is "one player away from being a top team."
yeah. one player like sidney effin' crosby, alex ovechkin, or jonathan toews.
in other news, i'm starting to think daz throws in a lie after he begins a sentence with "to be quite honest." i think that because of this gem from that same article:
“To be quite honest, I don’t see us being very active here at all,” Sutter said Thursday in a break from meeting with his scouts. “We have one or two guys who we’re really going to try and work with and get something done — on our own team.”
i'm 99% positive that we'll deal someone to get a pick in the first or second round. my bettin' money's on ian white, but i swear that i wouldn't be shocked to see gio go (SAD, but not surprised). if gio gets dealt tomorrow, watch fan support dwindle. this team is going nowhere fast.
