I don’t know the betting line on tonight’s game but the Calgary Flames are going to be bitchy.
They are a way better team than they showed in Edmonton this week and seem the suck of late no matter the opponent.
I read somewhere that Sutter came down from his office (one imagines his office being more like a coffee room where people work efficiently and eat their lunch from a brown paper bag without saying a word for the entire hour) and had a talk to the team.
Sutter’s delivery is such that the message usually gets through and since Keenan is acting like the good cop there’s every chance a fire has been lit under 20 bums.
I was looking at the Oilers roster this morning and the list of draft picks in the KP era (2001-2007) who have made the grade is impressive:
- 2002-Stoll, Greene
- 2003-Stortini, Brodziak
A nice selection of players with two quality talents as bookends. The other role players are on their way. Incredibly, one NHL career in the Prendergast draft era is already over. Jussi Markkanen will always have a place in Oilers lore.
