How Will Calgary Greet Phaneuf?

from Mike Zeisberger of the Toronto Sun, Phaneuf admits he is looking forward to being back in Calgary on Thursday. He hopes the Flames fans do not jeer him. Of course, that might be asking too much.

“I’m wearing a different jersey now, so if it’s boos, well, I’ve been booed in different buildings,” he said. “I won’t take it personally. I don’t think they’ll boo me because it’s part of the business. I did not ask to be moved.

“It will be a special night. I played a lot of games in that building. I played a lot of games for that organization. I’ll have lots of people to say hi to. But once the puck drops, I’m on a different team. I’m sure the guys over there would say the same thing.

“I had a lot of real good times there. There were a good years that went well. Being up for the Calder was very special. So was being up for the Norris. There were good times.”
