Dean Bettman: Bill, what is the worst team in this league?
Bill: Well that would be hard to say, sir. They're each outstanding in their own way.

Even I, among the most optimistic of fans, am starting to see the ground approaching fast for this edition of the Calgary Flames. I figure the absolute minimum to make the playoffs in the Western Confrence is going to be 55 points - meaning the Flames can only let 11 of a possible 40 points slip away before they're done.

It was a good game tonight for the good guys, and it was one that they deserved to win. As many times as we've heard a variant of the sentence this year, it hasn't always lead to a win - but tonight it did, as the Cowboy from Provost would shine on Western Night.

Tonight, the Flames welcome the San Jose Sharks to the Dome (they're likely on the plane from Vancouver right now!) for the first time since game one. Much has happened for both of the teams since that time, so don't expect it to be anything like that match. Or do. I dunno.

For an entire generation of Flames fans - hell, even Calgarians - those four letters were and still are instantly recognizable. Hearing them brings back one specific memory, maybe two, right away. The full-ice celebration, his first 50-goal season, breaking Al MacInnis' franchise record of 823 points, winning gold in '02 or the shootout goal against the Islanders, depending on the person.
He was able to put together a career out of seemingly nothing, becoming one of the greatest players in franchise history. Even though he dealt with numerous personal demons throughout the course of his career, Fleury still scored at a point-per-game pace over his 1084 contests: 455 goals and 633 assists.
