Thanks to Chris from The Program!!
Twas the night before free agent frenzy,
And all through the house....
Not a creature was stirring...
Except for maybe a mouse.
You could hear GM's thinking.
Of what players will be there.
In the first day they will be seeking....
A solution beyond compare.
There was Gainey and Sather having fun
Jumping the damn gun again
Trading players seven times one,
With Sather stealing the golden hen.
As the night wears on.....
The GM's will all be asleep.
Thinking hey mon....
Who can we ditch, who to sign and who to keep.
Now word out of Calgary,
Says Jay-Bo will stay.
At 5 years and 33 million, they marry.
But will this really pay?
So what really will come next?
Seems all the thunder is being stolen.
This leaves me all perplexed.
Like Bob Gainey or even Owen Nolan.
So much money to spend.
Yet these owners cried poor.
They needed a bunch to mend.
Their financial portfolio and well their core.
So who will stay and who will go?
Tomorrow we will find out.
Will us pundits all eat some crow?
Or will we be right and be able to shout.
Twas the night before the frenzy.
And this blogger cannot wait.
To see what teams do.
And for which teams it may be too late.
To every hockey fan out there...I wish you and your team happy hunting on the Frenzy....may you get the players you need or clear the cap space you desire.
