So we’re playing a little game with the kids from the Pension Plan Puppets blog. We’ve asked them five questions about their precious Leafs, and they’ve asked us five about the Mighty Oil. And tomorrow’s GDB thread will feature the questions we posed those sad, sad bastards as well as their high-larious answers.
In the meantime, we invite you all to comments and provide your responses to the questions below. The best one (or two) for each will be sent back to PPP which they will add to their own game-day thread.
You have until tomorrow morning at around 9am MST to get your responses in. Make ‘em good, lambs!
Questions from Leafs Fans
General Borshevsky asks: “Do you hold out hope that NHL superstars will again one day want to play in northern Alberta, and not, say, somewhere nice and pleasant to live?”
1967ers asks: “Where do Oilers fans get off trash talking anyone? Your vaunted youthful speedy star-laden roster has one (count it) more point than the rebuilding doomed-for-last-place slow, no promising youth Leafs do. As a follow-up, in what Bizarro universe is 1990 considered recent? Nobody under 30 has any vivid memories of the Oilers as a powerhouse.”
Jrwendelman asks: “How did it feel when Chris Pronger and his wife basically hocked a loogie on the statue of Gretz out front of the Rexall Place/Skyreach Centre/Edmonton Coliseum/Northlands Coliseum? How did it feel when Roli the Goalie got steamrollered in Game 1 of the ’06 Final, following which the Oil coughed up a three-goal lead and went on to lose the series in 7 games? That’s gotta hurt.”
PPP asks: “Picking up Dwayne Roloson before the trade deadline in 2006 turned out to be one of Kevin Lowe’s best moves as GM. It was one of his last good decisions before stepping down as GM (or screwing up upwards). Then the gamble on Mathieu Garon which worked out really well last year. Now JDD is apparently the second coming of Bill Ranford. What do you think Steve Tambellini is going to do to solve the overflowing crease?”
Chemmy asks: “Since I actually like the Oilers unlike some blogging partners I know my question isn’t antagonistic: What is your favourite playoff series post-1990?”
Let’s see some masterful responses, Nation!
