Yeah, but can your city beat up ours?

In yesterday's Calgary Sun, Eric Francis takes an uninformed cheap shot at our city where he refers to DC as a place where Nylander and his wife could "raise their five kids amidst the gunfire and politics of hockey hotbed Washington -- one of America's most violent cities." (That's eric.francis@calgarysun.com, if you'd care to respond.) Instead of returning fire in the same low-brow, childish manner, allow us to show a little class.

This from Original 6:

"Sour grapes. Actually Edmonton is lovely…..in July and August. Mom and I were there 35 years ago and loved it."

Just keep making rediculous offers to RFAs in an attempt to tread water. Why can't Lowe see what the rest of us can. It's time to blow things up and start from scratch. We could do it, so can they. It's not like people from Edmonton are going to stop watching the Oilers or anything. They've got nothing else to do, 'cause apparently their city is no fun to live in!

Not for nothing, but Edmonton is the murder capital of Canada.

lol... nice, JP.

For the sake of the rest of the NHL, I hope he stops making ridiculous offers to RFAs... Throw out many more contracts like Vanek's and salaries will end up hugely inflated.

Just sent "Eric Francis" a note letting him know he is a And you’re just a racist provincial hack who would die for the chance to write for The Washington Post. At least he has his memories of Elisha Cuthbert to keep him warm; she, like Nylander, ain't coming back to Alberta anytime soon.

Go Caps!

So you are all set to buy a video camera and have been doing your market research on which brand to buy and what the specifications of each brand. The battery-operated toothbrush may boast of the same capabilities, and they are cheaper, but in reality they only last a maximum of four weeks, depending on the usage level. They provide many flashlights that run on rechargeable batteries, which can save a great deal of money in the long run. But if you are 5 miles offshore, or some distance from home, and the battery fails in your boat or car, you could be in serious trouble. We now have great devices such as the internet to spread the knowledge of energy and learn to grow as one world as one giant battery.
