Salmagundi

Muse is dead. We got nothing.

AGM

The Flames hired a guy by the name of Weisbrod to ostensibly be  Feasters right hand man. Which is strange, because anybody who is paying attention knows that the Flames real assistant GM is one Jarome Iginla. Awkward!

WHAT'S MORE GHETTO

The Saddledome or the Calgary Flames?

AT THE DRAFT

We know a bunch of people who went down to the draft this year, some with a Calgary bent, but mostly people who cover other teams. Hearing a lot from them about Ken King. Why? Probably because they know we here at Dome Beers want the cat fired.

Anyways, take it with as many grains of salt as you may need, but we are hearing from our guys that, yes, yes indeed, Ken King is the real GM of the team, that he is an asshole, that he is difficult to work with, etc. etc.

Who knows, right? We do! We have clients who have to work with King, and they have horror stories about the cat, and those stories coincided nicely with what we were hearing from the people we know who were at the draft. You can think we are crazy, but we aren't: Ken King exercises way too much control in this organization, and it has hurt the on-ice product.

HALL OF FAME

It's funny, but talking to people around the city, and you know almost immediately when they became a fan of the Flames by asking them about Nieuwendyk or Gilmour.

The newschoolers often talk about what a bad trade the Gilmour deal was, or what a great player Joe was. Fine enough responses, we suppose. But the oldschoolers have better takes.

The oldschoolers response: Joe was a drunk, and Gilmour slept his way out of the city.

Gotta love the oldschool.

CLIFF LEE LAUGHS AT YOUR PUNY, INEFFECTIVE BAT

32 inning scoreless streak. That's ridiculous. Give the hitters their steroids and speed pills back. It's only fair.

FIVEHOLE FOR FOOD

Being the social conscious of the 'Domesphere, you know we are going to pimp FIVEHOLE FOR FOOD. We did it last year, we will do it again. A bigger post on the subject is coming tomorrow, but we are going to call out the rest of the Flames blog right now. You don't want Domebeers beating you to the punch, do you?

Get cracking on those stories, and let's get the awareness up. Inflation is killing people out there (specifically food inflation), so lets do what we can.

MCRIB

It's back, motherfuckers!

BITCH AND MOAN

It's what comment sections are for.

FREE AGENCY

Don't fuck it up too badly, King. (BRAD RICHARDS!) (YOU SHOULD HAVE SIGNED ILYA LAST YEAR!). Actually, Puck Daddy was reporting that Richards wanted two things to sign: Money and term. Ha! No, he said Richards agent said that Richards wants to go to a hockey market with young players and a chance to win. Well, Calgary, one out of three aignt bad.

DRURY

I wonder if Ken King completes his collection of old forwards.

Furthermore, I think Peter Loubardias should be fired.
