from Elliotte Friedman of CBC,
Wanted to write a column on how Jarome Iginla and the Calgary Flames should handle the next couple of weeks. This kind of article’s been written 1,000 times by 1,000 people, so the challenge is to come up with something different. For better or worse, here’s the result.
MAIN CAST OF CHARACTERS
Jarome Iginla: Calgary Flames captain. The franchise’s all-time leading scorer. Hugely popular in the community. Reluctant to leave.
Jay Feaster: Calgary Flames general manager. With at least six expiring contracts, has his first real opportunity to bring new energy into the organization.
Murray Edwards: A self-made success; one of the Flames’ six owners. He is chairman and director of the team.
Craig Conroy: Close friend of Iginla’s who moved into the team’s front-office after retiring. Initially wasn’t happy with being traded from St. Louis to Calgary.
Don Meehan: Iginla’s agent. His firm - Newport Sports - has the NHL’s largest client list.
Ray Bourque: Hockey Hall of Famer who, after much soul-searching, agreed to be traded from his NHL home of 21 years, Boston. He would win that elusive Stanley Cup as a member of the Colorado Avalanche.
