The good news? The Washington Caps beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 1-0 tonight. My masterblaster, the Russian Machine punched another one passed Fleury for the only goal of the night making his stat against the Flower 20 points in 19 games. OUCH-A-RONY! But Ovi can only carry this team for so long. At some point, Atlas will shrug.
The bad news you say, the rumor mill is grinding again that GM-GM (GM George McPhee) is looking to trade Sasha Fierce (Semin) again for – God knows what – probably NOT A GOALIE. Since word is they feel they have solid goaltending. Say what? This makes me a very sad panda because I love me both Sashas.The last time this rumor surfaced, they traded Tomas Fleischmann instead and got Scott Hannan. While Fleischmann is out for the season it isn’t like Hannan has been on fire. At least he is a plus now instead of a minus like his first 6 games. But Hannan has been a total No-goalov and Sasha Fierce has been Hat-trick McHatty. So I guess we get to play the wait and see. I really hope my house is bugged so if you’re listening GM GM, don’t trade Sasha Fierce. You have other dead weight to deal with – it’s Russian but it’s not named Sasha.
