FVVVVVVVCK!!!!!

Giordano signs in Russia

"Thanks" to Mirtle for the heads-up.

UPDATE: Just had an awful flashback. Remember the 11-man shootout loss to Columbus last November? Later that same night I was watching the highlights on Sportsnet Connected. Announcer was Jim Lang, who uses Surfer Voice sometimes (makes me laugh on occasion, but I'm pretty easy). Anyway, it's Round 10, and the Columbus player is carrying the puck towards the net, and the voiceover is Surfer Jim: "And the Jackets send out... Anders Eriksson?!? He sucks!!!"

...juusst as the puck dribbles off Eriksson's stick straight into the corner, without getting within six feet of Jamie McLennan.

Maybe Giordano was asking for way too much; maybe Keenan wouldn't have played him anyway; maybe Gio would have stopped progressing; who knows. But at the moment, having David Hale and Anders Eriksson, but not Mark Giordano, under contract for the season is very, very, very frustrating. We're all looking for guys who might outperform their contracts. Giordano at a million bucks a year would have been as good a candidate as any skater on the team.

Comments:

MG has been tracking the Gio progress as well. This is just a stupid play by Sutter IMO, Gio was a 4-5 guy on the team last year. No sense letting that valuable an asset leave for nothing.
 


Haha...great Eriksson story. Ignoring, for the moment, that Im a Flames fan and he's now on my team.

having David Hale and Anders Eriksson, but not Mark Giordano, under contract for the season is very, very, very frustrating.

Ugh. Agreed.
 


Boooooooooring ...

Who cares?
 


Mrs. Giordano, for one.
 


Battle of Alberta?

More like Snoreapalooza!

Note: possibility that an NHLer would rather eat cabbage soup for a year than play for Keenan will not be entertained here.
 


I'm not concerned. He played well last year, but it was against 3rd & 4th line guys. He never played tough minutes. I was expecting a drop off from him, much like Phaneuf saw once he started playing against tougher opponents. A year in Russia as opposed to bouncing back and forth might be a good thing in the grand scheme of things.

This also tells me that Rhett will stay put.
 


I remember that shootout, good times. Haha.

"Anders Eriksson?!?! That guy SUCKS! Haha!"
