For those who stop by the live chat or want to follow along at a friends house or bar, the Charlie Simmer drinking game:

- drink whenever he starts a sentence with "again..." if it's the first time he's mentioned the issue that night.

- drink whenever he says "keep(ing) their feet moving".

- drink whenever he notes the team must "keep it simple"

- drink when he mentions the key to the attack or the power play is getting pucks/bodies to the net

- have a shot whenever items 2-4 appear together in the same sentence

- drink whenever Charlie mixes metaphors or messes up a common colloquialism

The Islanders are one of a number of NHL clubs stuck in a sort of endless drought brought on by a lackluster budget and even more lackluster management. They are one of the prime examples of how a "rebuild" can go awry and result in perpetual misery rather than a renewal and return to success. Of course, that may be more an indictment of the people behind the wheel than the strategy itself.

The Flames are on a roll right now, although Im personally rather dubious of it's legitimacy. For most, the issue is one of pragmatics over principle however - so if a lucky streak will help the club get into the playoffs this season, so be it. Just as long as Calgary's decision makers can delineate between some short-term fortune and the long-term needs of the franchise, of course.
