Nolan Tuesday July 3, 2007

Late last night the Flames singed Owen Nolan to a one-year incentive laden contract. Sure it’s always wonderful to have a Good ol’ Fucking hard ass Irish boy on the team, but I have to wonder if this is the second coming of Lowery or is this going to be another Gelinas move.

Unfortunately, I still think Nolan’s career pinnacled at the 1997 All-star game when he pulled off one of the greatest goals in NHL history. Calling his own shot against Dominic Hasek during the All-star game held in his own kitchen which topped off a Hat-Trick, giving him the game’s MVP.

The only thing missing is a pint of Guinness and a fat cigar. I’m sorry but it doesn’t get much sweeter than that.

P.s. Hey, guess who spins out in the first three seconds of the video.

The best part of that clip is seeing Fleury in the scrum celebrating the goal with his Flames helmet on… awesome…

If the Flames ever found another Lowery, it would be the start of a 10 year cup tradition.
