Casually announcing his retirement after a 10 year stint that saw him become perhaps the best goaltender in franchise history is so very Kiprusoff. Of course, this is translated from a Finnish news source and isn't what you'd call official, so we can't say for certain this is a reality yet.

Warning: not a hockey related post
A close friend of mine happened to be one of the few souls in the downtown core Friday morning when the high waters began to crest the banks and flood the city. He was able to catch some firsthand shots of the devastation before fleeing which he has agreed I can share here.

Cam Charron pointed out an interesting article by Sabrematrician Phil Birnbaum yesterday entitled Eliminating Stupidity is easier than creating brilliance; a statement I think is pertinent to the state of hockey analysis in general and to the Flames moving forward in particular.

Corban Knight is the newest Flame. He is also a scholar, a gentleman, a free mason and a superhero.— FlamesNation (@FlamesNation) June 18, 2013
Our own Mr. BookofLoob has been warning folks on twitter that the excitement level surrounding new Flame Corban Knight seems to be a little out of step with how important the player actually is in the grand scheme of things. And fair enough.

It was noted this evening by Edmonton radio host Bob Stauffer that the Flames may be making a play for former Panthers 5th rounder Corban Knight. A 22-year old center from High River, Knight recently completed his fourth season at the University of North Dakota where he scored 49 points in 41 games.
