First and foremost, I must say that the man makes a truly outstanding Whopper. Hold the mayo, extra pickles, it really is a thing of beauty and I do believe that he has finally found his true calling and life's work.
I thoroughly enjoyed his artistry whilst watching the Flames statistically dominate a radically inferior Chicago team this evening (at least that's what I read on Matchsticks & Gasoline - aka Self-Immolation; a How To Guide).
But I think that there was something else I was going to mention here...
Oh yes, an attempt to defend Frankie from the slings and arrows of outrageous MHHers who would sully his fine reputation for talent evaluation, cap management and the like. To whit, I offer the following:
Your Hall of Fame Center and all-time Captain - Tyyyyyyyyyyyyylllleeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrrrr Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrnason!
Your Vezina and Hart Trophy winning - Goaltending Tandem for the Ages - Peeeeeeeeeeeeeeeterrr Boooooooooodye and AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAaaaandrewwwwwwwwww Raayyyyycrofft!
Hang on, that might not be it.
OK, here we go:
So, here's what that looks like now:
Jordan Leoprone - Florida Kittens (ssshhhh - don't mention the PP - you'll scare them!!)
In exchange for:
Ryan "Big Willie" Wilson - Colorado Snowslides
2009 2nd round pick (49th overall) - who turned out to be, through no fault of our beloved Frankie - one;
Stefan Elliott - Saskatoon Blades / Western Hockey League (Colorado Snowslides)
|2009-10 Regular Season||Saskatoon Blades||24||8||15||23||21||6|
Hmmm, does this make up for trading Tanger to the Flamers for Leoprone and Codey Burki? Well, let's just say that Frankie will now "do it your way" coz he has to - at least if he wants to remain assistant night manager. But he used to march to the beat of his own flutist, or something like that.
Point being, even a self-righteous, self-absorbed half-wit of a GM finds a nut once in a while. And he does make a wicked burger.
