my minions must be busy too

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 ....

ah, well.
*slaps wrist*

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.

I was so bored without updates, god.

But actually, I was doing homework for a million straight hours. I saw that Mercedes commercial on FB by the way and am intrigued to know what your role was!

And based on the last time I saw her truck, not a particularly good one. :)

Sorry about not writing, been busy in Cowtown lately.

Duuuude....I had this whole incestual piece about Modin, Feaster, the 2004 Lightning team, and the Flames up and running and then I got sidetracked with work. I should be posting a now abbreviated version later tonight. Thanks for calling us out...dude. ;P

You need new minions, clearly.

Was hoping for some sort of Swede picspam in honour of Modin's arrival. Disappointing...

jafi: as if i wouldn't call you guys out. please note that duncan hasn't even noticed this post is figuratively poking him in the ribs... ;)

sarah: i googled "modin nude/naked/shirtless" but all i got was a lot of headshots of that guy from full metal jacket & vision quest.
