Friday Baseball Standings

So, a 5-0 loss to their most likely playoff opponent... nice. The Flames' night wasn't quite as bad as the Oilers', but that's not good. Neither is 3-7-0 in their last 10.

Or perhaps I should say 4-7-0 in their last 11, those being the 11 games in which they've had an upgraded Big Body Down The MiddleTM centreman. I was at least fairly clear when the Jokinen for Lombardi Plus trade went down that I didn't much like it in the big picture, but that there were reasons for optimism and that it could work out. If you had told me back on March 5th that Olli would score 8 goals in his first 11 games... well, I should like the trade more now than I did then, shouldn't I? I don't, yet. Score a bunch of goals in the playoffs, help win a round or two, and all is forgiven.

And Go Ducks.


And Go Ducks.

Huzzah! Finally a vote of confidence that I didn't need to type myself.

Someone just upgraded to Office 2007.

Calgary fans are cheering for the Oilers to opt out of the postseason while Oiler fans are cheering for Calgary to hang onto the 3 seed. Says it all, doesn't it?

To put it another way, the sole remaining Battle of Alberta blogger doesn't seem too keen on the idea of a Battle of Alberta.

Unfortunately, it doesn't seem that the Oilers are very interested either . . .
