i totally thought that i'd bring on some dudes to write for htp so that the weeks-on-end i disappear for sometimes (this time to icy cold deadmonton), something might get written. y'know, grow the brand or whatever ....
anyhow, no big surprises out of flamesville ---other than jay feaster's hockey advisors suggesting that we need ANOTHER defenseman (bet that stings, don't it mikkelson ?) and ANOTHER guy over the age of 35 to hang with staios in the oldtimer's lounge. don't get me wrong, i am actually a big fan of freddy modin (god knows i'd NEVER be upset with the addition of a swede) but i'm not really sure what he brings to the club...
what i really liked about feasters first moves with the flames was that they were all just minor tweaks, in effort to streamline the roster. in essence, i think the moves yesterday were in the same vein; ass-covering moves in case the team DOES make the postseason, and needs experienced bodies to make a run. neither carson nor modin's contracts extend into next season, so the damage is minimal either way.
other than that, DEADline day was just so.
now. get on it, boys.
