Montreal Canadiens v Pittsburgh Penguins - Game Five

On Twitter today, somebody suggested that we at The FAN 960 should no longer refer to Montreal's Mike Cammalleri by name.  Instead we should refer to him as "MC", to which I suggested we take a cue from the 2004 movie The Village and refer to him only as "he we do not speak of".

So, last week, I put up the first piece on Calgary Flames GM Darryl Sutter in a "The Good, The Bad, The Ugly" series… I put up three examples, and I'm sure there are more.

Montreal Canadiens v Washington Capitals - Game Two

Sometimes we hear the phrase "the grass is greener on the other side." Sometimes it is, sometimes it isn't... but right now, a number of former members of the Calgary Flames are playing post-season hockey with another team. I thought it might be interesting to see how they're doing while Flames fans still lament the season that was.
