1. I can't believe I'm saying this
The Montreal Canadiens yesterday placed Scott Gomez on waivers for the purposes of buying him out, and if the Calgary Flames aren't the first team to call him, Jay Feaster should be fired. Into the sun.
I know what you're going to say: "Scott Gomez? Really? I knew Lambert was a hack and an idiot but this is sinking to new lows even for a troll moron like him." Well I don't know if anyone has looked at the Flames' depth down the middle lately, but you could stand in it with your pants rolled up only a little bit.

1. It's starting
I swear to you that I wanted to enter this season with some amount of positivity until I got a list of inquiries from Kent on Monday night. That FlamesNation roundtable, which was published yesterday morning, asked a lot of tough question to which I found myself more than aggrieved by most of the answers.

1. Another good draft
While you and I may sit here and disagree with the selection of Mark Jankowski all day and night, the fact remains that the Flames have been able to put together goodish drafts under Jay Feaster, at least in terms of early returns.

1. It seems this is a thing now
Pierre LeBrun recently posted a list of 10 things he thought the league could do to make this whole "second lockout in eight years" thing up to the fans. Then Greg Wyshynski posted his list of five things the league could do. There was some overlap, and the areas where they agreed came because they were sensible. Free Center Ice for everyone? Yeah, that's obvious. Playing 3-on-3 overtime after the traditional 4-on-4 is also a way to get around of the shootout in many games, which is terrible and awful.

1. Interesting about this European disquiet
The thing we always heard about guys going over to Europe during the lockout is that while they wouldn't exactly be able to make the kind of living they were used to in the NHL, they could do well enough, and play hockey at a high level.
And that may very well be true.
