An Open Letter: Arron Asham

In the words of FlyersBuzzTap's Tweet: "Ashes to Ashes, Dust to dust, Arron Asham, you're dead to us"

(Notice the correct use of citations via the link)

Anyway, the peeps of DGS have decided to write Asham an open letter telling him how we feel about this; so here goes...

Dear Mr. Asham,

I guess we shouldn't be surprised that you'd jump right to the enemy. Arguably it wasn't your fault. But it sure seems like you recently have had a habit of fucking over your previous employers. Hell you went from the Islanders, to the Devils to the Flyers to the Penguins...guess this means you plan on being Whore-vechkin's bodyguard in 2011-2012 doesn't it? Seriously, show some fucking loyalty. The fans of Philadelphia embraced you, and of 700K is all you wanted, I'm pretty sure even Paul Holmgren could have found the money to sign you.

I'd wish you luck in your future endeavors but in reality, the only thing I should be doing is wishing the fans of Penguins luck when you show up in 2011-12 wearing a Capitals uniform.

I mean, the only place I law less loyalty is how Dallas handled Mike Modano, and that's saying something.

On the other hand, you're a great reminder of NHL94, you occasionally sneak slapshots by unsuspecting goalies and have this one deke move that you used to out maneuver Mike Green and Jose Theodore in 2009. Honestly, that's not much of a accomplishment, going around a forward then beating Steve Penney with a wrist shot isn't much to be proud of. But hey, that's all your good at.

Thanks for the memories, you're gonna forget them all when Pronger's elbow meets your skull.

Down Goes Spezza and the Orange Nation


  1. Pens fans will not be thinking crapitals... If Asham follows his precident, then he will go right back to the cesspool that he came from, since Philthy is rival #1 for Pittsburgh =)

    Nice blog, as usual!

  2. This reminds me that I need to write Mr. Turco a letter.

  3. Since nothing in this blog is funny, I assume you write this letter in all seriousness. If you would have read any comments from Asham during this offseason, Philly is always where he wanted to stay. I'd say the only 'fucking over' in this instance came July 1 when the Flyers signed half the player (Jody Shelley) for nearly twice the money. That was a slap in the face to a guy who was an important piece of their Cup run.

    "Nothing in this blog is funny"

    You lack a sense of humor. DGS is a funny blog, maybe not the funniest but he's good at what he does. If you think you can do better, start your own and see what happens.
