Brad, Bingo And Beer
They already grabbed the smallest Vancouver Canuck from last season in Ryan Shannon. Now in Brad Isbister, they signed one of the biggest.
Isbister is only 31 but it seems like he's been around the league since 1984 and might be ready to challenge Mike Sillinger for the suitcase award. While it seems that adding another forward to an already busting at the seams lineup is a touch overkill, the fans in Binghamton are in an angry mood these days and just might torch that old barn they call an arena if things don't improve. Whoever doesn't make the big squad or get traded will help out Bingo for the year and try to save head coach Cory Clouston's job.
Since the NHL lockout, the B-Sens have missed the playoffs three straight years and haven't won a series since 2003.
That dismal record is no good for morale within the organization and it looks like GM Bryan Murray is trying to address it.
I'm off to the cottage for the weekend. If some kind of mind-shattering trade takes place, I'll be here to piss all over it on Monday morning.
Have a nice weekend.
