It is today – in the middle of the dog days of summer, with just 58 days until the first pre-season game against the 2nd place, runner-up Vancouver Canucks – that I have decided to ask the hockey gods for a-lil-bit-o-karma.
So let me declare Monday July 25th as Matt Stajan Monday by asking all Flames fans to join in and watch this video in hopes that we can see some Vintage Matt Stajan this upcoming season.
And as an added debt payment to the hockey gods, may I suggest today’s reading:
- Matt Stajan Is a First-Line Centre — a 2009 post by new LeafsNation blogger @67sound
- No, Really, Matt Stajan Is a First-Line Centre — a follow-up to the previous article (written by Pamplemousse)
So while we could use a first-line centre and all, it’d be nice if we could drum up #somekinda karma so that Matt Stajan can have a bounce-back season, and at the very least, be a second-line centre (or winger) for our beloved Flames.
What? It Could Happen
And By The Way!
While I didn’t share the venom some fans directed Peter Loubardias’ way, it’s nice to see Rob Kerr get the Sportsnet play-by-play gig. *Now if we can only find a way to ‘relieve’ Charlie Simmer of his ‘duties’ in favour of oh, I dunno… say Rhett Warrener, we’d be in business.
