I'm going to die from the tedium drama...

I don't know what to make of the team anymore. Not that that's a bad thing, they're just inconsistent, I guess.

Looks like I missed a good one Thursday. My guess is Mixmaster Mike will continue his line-juggling ways (anything to remind the boys not to be complacent) tonight, and continue to emphasize defence-first (we know that works... why don't we do this more, ahem, regularly?) Unlike Colorado, I don't see to remember doing particularly well against Minnesota this season. Definitely not better than seasons past anyways.

Minnesota's got their share of late-season bumps and bruises, the latest casualty being ex-Calgary draft pick Kurtis Foster. When do we get no-touch icing?

If you're getting tired of the late-season roller coaster, 'tis also the time of year to go forth and catch playoff hockey! The Hitmen only sold 9,000 or seats last night, so there's definitely room for more. The team mostly does their thing by committee... besides Alzner, there aren't any standout stars, but these kids could teach the big boys across the hall a thing or too about gettin' it done. They've been smokin' hot this year, have been startlingly consistent, and I'm looking forward to watching listening to them go deep (semester is right in the middle of busy, so unfortunately, I won't be planting my ass in a seat at the 'Dome anytime soon).

Oh. They also all dyed their hair blonde. That means good things, yes?

So...go Calgary!
