Love that we are rooting against them just to see our pick improved. Oh, and the Jeff Carter thing.

****in' Scumderi. That was the angriest I've been in a long time for a hockey game. I couldn't believe the refs let that happen to anyone without a penalty. Absolute travesty.

So under what pretense would it be OK to root against them? You're gonna put all those reasons on a "acceptability" scale? Who gets to be the arbiter of fan-dom?

Senators lines: Michalek-Spezza-Silfverberg; Latendresse-Turris-Alfredsson; Regin-O’Brien-Condra; Greening-Smith-Neil.

Defensive pairings: Methot-Karlsson; Gonchar-Borowiecki; Phillips-Wiercioch. Extra is Benoit.

Methot a 1st pairing D-man?

Watch him become a terror too. The moans and groans of how we never should have given up Methot would be so funny to hear from this board.

Remember, when a non-traditonal market team does it, it's because they don't have any fans, but when Toronto does it, it's a grand gesture.

Clearly they should be relocated to someplace that appreciates hockey.

This is a sign that Toronto needs another franchise.

Clearly a sign that Toronto's tickets are too expensive...the guy in the picture can afford neither a jersey that fits nor a shirt to wear underneath.

flames waived both backup goalies, I'd be happy with Karlsson or Irving as a 2nd/3rd. It would fill in a weak spot.

I think Irving gets claimed, but not by Columbus. Karlsson could be claimed way down the list if someone needs a stopgap.

Does Calgary even have any other goalies under contract (and in North America) besides Kiprusoff and these two?

I'm interested to see what happens with Brian Strait (Pittsburgh). Third-pairing defensive defenseman, and may be able to present a matchup problem against certain teams. And if nothing else, could allow Moore or Savard to be sent back to Springfield for further seasoning.

That confuses the heck out of me. Are they just planning on playing Kipper for all 48 games? Granted, that'd still be a considerable reduction from his usual annual workload, but still... one would think a mid-game injury (g-d forbid) would be disastrous.

My guess is this is a preliminary move to a potential deal. There are some goalies to be had around the league, and maybe the Flames know something that we don't.

Would like this more than a Redden move, although it still doesn't address the greater need in the front end.

McIlhenny still has to be exposed. I wonder how long they will leave him on IR? Maybe long enough to let roster rush settle a little?

Isles claimed him, of course.

This is starting to get irritating.

If the Jackets had wanted him, their claim would have taken precedence.

They apparently passed.

Yes, it's based on most recent standings - meaning we had waiver priority #1.
