"I just think that it just goes to show how close we really were and how in the league there's a lot of parity," Anderson said before boarding a flight to Toronto, where he is doing work for Canadian sports network TSN. "A goal here, a bounce there, a referee's call here or there can make a difference between winning a series and maybe even making it into the playoffs."
Glad to see John Anderson has found work still talking about all those bad bounces. I mean, good gravy, JUST GIVE IT UP ALREADY!!!!
On a side note, I have now decided that I would prefer us to trade our #8 pick, if the right opportunity comes along. I think we are at the right time in our franchise history to make this move and lets face it... that is going to be by far the easiest way to get another prime player in here. It ain't gonna happen in free agency. Hey, lookie here.... Calgary needs a new start and they don't have a 1st round pick (or 2nd or 3rd, I don't think). Hmmm. Could it be true? Dudley has talked about bringing in maybe one guy that is a little older for leadership purposes. Package the #8 pick along with something else for the guy, who in my opinion, that is the best Captain currently in the NHL. Pure BS (Big Shooter) speculation here. Nothing more. I would do this in a heartbeat. How about you? Hmmm?
