This is Sandy Koufax. He’s here to remind us that pitchers and catchers report next week.
The Ducks are home tonight and need these two points badly. Getzlaf’s injury looks like it is less serious than first thought and they’re getting some production from new hire Jason Blake. The Edmonton Oilers will also be at the game.
I think Steve Tambellini is getting closer to making a trade. All the telltale signs are there: Oiler players being quoted in newspapers and online in regard to “praying to the Gretzky statue” for a trade to another town. Any town.
Also, Jim Matheson is dropping trade rumors, Elliotte Friedman was on with Stauffer yesterday telling us that the club could deal Denis Grebeshkov if they wanted to do it and Stauffer himself sounded yesterday like he’d welcome a trade just so he could ask a different set of questions.
It’s been a tough season. Everyone is piling on the Oilers and honestly it is getting to be a little much. To quote the working men and women who cheered for Koufax back in Brooklyn, they might be bums but they’re our bums.
