Go Home

from the Calgary Sun,

There was no tongue-lashing, no screaming, no sticks thrown into the stands before storming off.

Keenan simply told the Flames to return to their digs. The session was over and done before the clock struck 11:30 a.m.

“I feel when we’re here, it’s a privilege to be at the arena. It’s a privilege to play in the NHL. It’s a privilege to coach in the NHL,” Keenan said. “When you’re asked to work for 30 minutes, I want you to work. If you’re not going to work, it’s not really productive to do anything but get off the ice.

“They’re off for the day and they’ll be back tomorrow.”

Players were ordered not to discuss what took place or what was said in the room, which you can bet wasn’t peaches and cream, although one player said it “wasn’t Mike Keenan of 1989”.

The Goalie Situation In Calgary

from the Calgary Herald,

Kiprusoff’s leash has lost about five links based on Joseph’s efficient play and Kipper’s alleged sloth of late. For both Kiprusoff and goalie coach David Marcoux, this is uncharted territory. How quickly will coach Mike Keenan now pull back on the chain? How much more ice will Cujo see? And how will it play between Kiprusoff’s ears? You’ve just crossed over into the Goalie Controversy.

CuJo’s Career Has Had Many Paths

from the Calgary Herald,

As was the norm in those days, the clunkiest skater on the squad was handed lumpy leather pads, a battered blocker and a tattered trapper, and pointed toward the net.

“I had a passion to score goals,” said Joseph, “but I wanted to be on the team also. So there was a little give and take there.”

Give and take as in Joseph gave up on his dream of being a scorer and took the opening given him. Progress was slow for the neophyte netminder.

Sutter Has No Plans To Trade Tanguay

from TSN,

Huselius Should Be Moved

via Eric Francis of the Calgary Sun,

If indeed the Flames are to be active at this year’s trade deadline, the name Flames fans should hope is in play is that of Kristian Huselius….

Truth is the team has been doing just fine without him for the last month when the one-dimensional dispsy-doodler has chipped in with just one goal in his last 20 outings. It confirms what GM Darryl Sutter has been saying about him all along—he’s not a first-line winger.

He’s rendered useless when the going gets tough, he can’t contribute physically or defensively and he has no future here.

Flames Rarely Make A Big Splash

from Steve MacFarlane of the Calgary Sun,

When it comes to Sutter’s Flames on deadline day, that warning label should read: ‘Prepare to be disappointed.’

Although the Flames likely will be working the phones and kicking tires right until the clock strikes 1 p.m. Tuesday afternoon, history has shown Sutter refuses to overpay for the impact players most readily available at the deadline.

The biggest name brought aboard in the second half of a Sutter season here was Chris Simon in 2004, a few days before the actual closing date.
