All sweetness and light these days, isn't it? Or maybe that's just me being in Arizona as opposed to the wintry 'Peg. At any rate, with the NHL on it's All-Star Hiatus, it's time again for a look at matters of interest around the Flames and the league. In this week's review, Calgary finds some form, players continue to drop out of this weekend's festivities in Raleigh, and the sale of the Coyotes is still on shaky ground.

Tonight's opponent for the Flames are a club that might be fortunate to be in the league at all given the iffy financial picture that's surrounded them for much of their tenure in the league, but they're again thriving on-ice despite all the handicaps they face.

Every year, a team rides some nice percentages to a high finish that no one expected. Boston in 08/09, the Avs last season, it happens. This year, tonight's opponent is the team that looks like it might be fortune's darling.

The Flames head to one of my favourite cities on the continent for a meeting with Les Glorieux this evening, and one issue that we've discussed ad nauseum around these parts is equally at play for the hosts, since they can't throw it in the ocean on most evenings themselves.

It isn't often that the Flames get to play a team that is clearly in a worse spot these days, but that opportunity presents itself this evening in Kanata when they meet the Senators. Ottawa is a team going nowhere and likely headed for a teardown, with near term prospects for the Sens appearing a bit bleak. Why does that sound familiar?
