Calgary Flames Media Day

Al Cameron of the Flames Insider at the Calgary Herald, from Mike Keenan’s press conference:

Also interesting was Keenan’s somewhat condescending point (or maybe I’m just a little over-sensitive) that, yes, he’s been a member of the media in the past, and yes, he knows the pressures we’re under from higher-ups (yes, you editors know who you are!) to draw conclusions and pass judgement on hockey matters, but maybe, just maybe, we don’t know the full story in all cases..

A bit more from Keenan about this year’s playoffs here, mentioning that he plans to be behind the bench next season, and a few other points.

And what did Miikka Kiprusoff have to say today? Another posting from Cameron:

Hey, whaddya know? Miikka Kiprusoff, for the second straight year, has elected to blow off the media and, by extension, blow off the fans of the Calgary Flames by not speaking on garbage bag day.
Yes, I know his job is to stop pucks for the Calgary Flames, not speak to the media, but at some point he’s got to say something to the people who pay a good chunk of his salary by buying tickets to see him play.
No such luck this year. Thanks for nothing, Miikka . . .
