Hungover Paul Holmgren trying to piece yesterday together

Paul HolmgrenFlyers general manager Paul Holmgren announced Friday that he is extremely hungover and while he can’t remember a thing that happened yesterday, he is in the process of trying to piece everything together if you will just bare with him for a minute.

Holmgren said he vaguely remembers something about a trade and hearing people curse, but he wasn’t sure if that was part of a dream or if that actually happened.

“The last thing I really remember was taking a shot from these two exotic-looking women” said Holmgren, who was then roofied into trading Jeff Carter to Columbus and Mike Richards to Los Angeles while signing Ilya Bryzgalov to a nine-year $51 million deal. “Next thing I know, I’m waking up on South Street this morning with 7,519 angry text messages.”

Holmgren said he would try to reach out to his star captain Mike Richards to find out more about what happened last night and also plans to talk with Jeff Carter about his thoughts on adding Ilya Bryzgalov to the team.

    Taking into consideration Mr. Holmgren’s past problems with alcohol, this is probably not the smatest thing you could have written.

    I doubt “Mr. Holmgren” takes himself half as seriously as you do.

    When is going to give up on’s horrible attempt at satire? This stuff isn’t even funny. Mr Edwards has a strong case of the “trying to hards.”

    The irony of a guy trying too hard to tell me I’m trying too hard is hilarious.

    As does the author who responds to every critical comment anyone makes on his “satirical” articles.

    So now I’m not allowed to respond to comments on my own site. I see…
