Blogger just nuked the post we just spent some time writing. FUCK BLOGGER. This weekend we are going to look at moving the site, because this is like the 3rd or 4th time blogger has done this to us.
Anyways, we can't rewrite the post. Sorry. It was good so we are pissed.
The short: Reggie was disrespected by not being allowed to provide Ken King a list of teams he would approve a trade too, and then working on trading him to those teams. Making a trade with Buffalo, a team he doesn't want to go to, and then making it public, is the type of joke shit that makes players like Tim Erixon not want to play here.
Trading for Ryan Smyth is fucking retarded, and asking Reggie to move so we can bring in Ryan Smyth is about the lowest thing we have ever seen this organization do. On top of that, the idiot running the Flames, Ken King, isn't even making the Kings cough up a high pick for us to do them a favour and take on Smyth's contract. He isn't because he isn't very smart, but hey, we already knew that.
People, the window is closed. We need to rebuild. That may take years. That means there is almost no point in holding on to Reggie, Jarome, Kipper, Bourque, Jblowsover0.08, or Stajan. Which means there is no point in acquiring Smyth, other than to waste more of Murray Edwards money.
Furthermore, I think Peter Loubardias should be fired.
