For the next 2 weeks, we switch our allegiances from our home town to our country. Before we head off on our break to watch the Canadians bring home the gold, where it belongs, we bring you one last show to catch you up on all the big news out of Ottawa this week, including:
Caps 5 - Sens 6
Sens 1 - Detroit 4
Sens 4 - Isles 3
After going toe-to-toe with the Mighty Capitals and coming out on top, the Sens went on to 2 sub-par performances but managed to get one win out of it. Let's mark it up to looking forward to the O-break. The important thing is they finished on a positive note.
There was lots of news off the ice this week as Murray had his option year picked up and signed on to be GM for at least one more year and this sparked a very well thought-out, intelligent, cohesive discussion. WE KNOW! We were surprised too!
Murray then went on to dispose of PEE-card and a 2nd rounder to, who else, Carolina for versatile veteran Matt Cullen. We all agree this was a solid move but we all also agree it must be leading to at least one more deal for a D-man. The question is, what type of D-man will Murray get and who might be packaged to bring him in? The future of poor ol' Cheech is also discussed as well as the likely plans for A-train.
Of course, we speak of the Olympics, the SU get together from last weekend (where we raised $270 for the Rene Faucher Fund), enjoyed some Beau's and made some new friends with the ground hogs. Stooli has the News, we have an e-mail and another voice mail from a British listener who sounds suspiciously like an old jewish woman from Florida.
Hockey Poolies, don't forget to get your subs in to Russell before the end of the Olympic break!
See you in two weeks. GO CANADA GOLD!
