Crumbling around our ears

I love hockey and I love being a hockey fan. In fact, I even love days like this where it feels like doom is imminent and it's time to fire everybody and start over. One Russovillian is even suggesting blowing up the entire NHL.

I find the drama pretty entertaining though. The rush of the win or even the win streak wouldn't mean anything without times like this. And what times these are:

  • The Wild kicked off their toughest roady of the season with an ugly loss to Calgary (natch) and look to be playing for an early golf season.
  • Boogie is suspended 5 games for an embarrassing elbow to the head of a guy who just got back from a broken jaw.
  • Cal seems to be playing through an injury and, as a result, playing a squirrely game the last couple of outings.
  • Weller is on waivers.
  • The Aeros killed and buried their handsome win streak with a 1-6 abomination last night.
  • Our offensive studs look completely unmotivated.
  • Brusty has a leg injury of some sort.
  • Playoffs? Don't talk about... Playoffs??!
It really does feel sometimes like the walls are falling down around us, but this summer, when the Cup has been awarded to some other team and we only have free agency, random signings, and NHL09, and hope for next season to keep us entertained, we'll long for this roller coaster ride.

Anyway, the Wild are the late game on HNIC tonight against Scott TFCG's beloved Grease. I'm gonna predict a loss for the Wild. I know... way to go out on a limb.

And the Aeros are facing the QC Flamers tonight. Same prediction as above. If our scorers aren't motivated and our goalies can't see the puck, that's one salty pickle, my friends.

flames re-called warren peters today, which means the QC team is somewhat depleted (peters, lundmark, DVDG all up here with me !!).

i'm guessing that might give your aeros a good chance.

Ahhh, that's music to my ears. Thanks WI.

I got your salty pickle, right here ;)

You sure summed things up nicely there Ms C.
