Blame The Fantasy People

from Todd Kimberley at NHL.com,

What’s behind all the “what’s-up-with-Jarome” chatter in Calgary?

Craig Conroy has his own pet theory.

“I think a lot of it has to do with fantasy pools now,” chuckled Conroy, a longtime teammate of Calgary Flames captain Jarome Iginla.

“Everybody’s got the fantasy guys ... they might have picked Jarome first overall, so they want him to get some points,” Conroy said prior to Tuesday’s win over Montreal. “But yeah, it’s always been that way. In a Canadian market, they want to see a star player play well early, so they know this is going to be a great year.”

As barometers go, this one has revealed much of the charged climate and high expectations in Flames Nation these days.
