1. The Brendan Morrison trade sends a mixed message
The other day Calgary traded Brendan Morrison to Chicago, ostensibly to lend them some help down the middle so they don't need to keep playing woefully-ineffective center Patrick Kane at the pivot instead.

1. Tanguay's back
So that means no more excuses.
I think I'm finally starting to deal with the team's resolution to 'Go For It' again this year, though that is likely helped in no small way by the fact that they've won five of their last seven with a shootout loss mixed in. And with Tanguay having returned to the lineup last night, the team officially has very little reason to hang whatever poor performances may come in the next few weeks on anything but the fact that they're not very good.

(Wanye has instituted a new rule when it comes to BoA's: winner of the last game gets to write the losers game day post. Naturally I readily agreed because it benefited my side of the conflict. So for those Oilers faithful wondering why a scummy Flames fan is penning your GDB, kindly refer all complaints to Mr. Wanye Gretz III, Esq. - KW)
Things can't be easy for the Edmonton Oilers these days.
Everyone is hurt (or at least faking injuries) and Taylor Hall is paying teammates to step on his face, all so they don't have to play for the Oilers. And really, given how badly things have gone lo these past every-year-since-they-accidentally-made-the-Cup-final, who can blame them?

1. The Cammalleri trade
So I'm watching the Bruins/Canadiens game last week — you know, as you do — and Mike Cammalleri sure isn't getting a lot of playing time as the second period wore on.

1. He did it!
There hasn't been a lot to be happy about this year as a Flames fan, unless you count Olli Jokinen's 1,000th game (and you shouldn't). But Jarome Iginla's milestone goal is certainly one of them.
