With Edmonton's post-season hopes once again turning cold, Lowetide's attention is sensibly turning to the long-term again, with his gaze shifting towards the upcoming draft in June 2012. Futures and the ever depressing Battle of Alberta are the topics du jour.

The sun sets at night and rises again in the morning. Lindsay Lohan abuses substances. And the Calgary Flames beat the Edmonton Oilers. From what I've seen in my lifetime, those trends don't seem to be changing, and on Saturday night, the Flames continued that trend with another all-too-easy victory in Edmonton, this time by a 6-2 score. It finishes off a successful three game road trip for the Flames, where they earned five of a possible six points.

(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?

The title above refers to two things: the amount of efffort I'm putting into this post on a Saturday morning after a rare Friday night off, and what the Flames should make of the Oilers tonight at Rexall Place. After a solid two game stint in California, Calgary traveled to a much less prime destination yesterday for their fourth meeting with Edmonton tonight (8pm, CBC and Sportsnet 960).
