The Calgary Flames kicked off their 2013-14 season with, oddly, an off-day for players on Monday (aside from Joe Colborne and Mike Cammalleri working out on-ice). However, the city's sports media were tucked snugly in the Ed Whalen Media Lounge for a chance to visit with newly-appointed President of Hockey Operations Brian Burke and GM Jay Feaster, the latter of whom announced the team's roster moves to bring them down to 23 men to open the year.
Here are some notes from the press conference.

The Calgary Flames announced their final 23 man roster Monday, sending four more to the Abbotsford Heat of the American Hockey League.
The 31 players cut over the past few weeks will either head to Abbotsford for the beginning of training camp there, or return to their respective CHL junior clubs for the balance of that season. So what lays ahead for these 34 young men as their NHL dream is - for now - postponed?
We'll also look at the Flames starting roster and discuss the potential line combos to open the season.

I have been thrust in charge of most things Streakcred because I’m the person around here that likes to win every useless thing in the world and I’m quite proud of it. With a mantle full of fishing titles and fantasy sports trophies I set out to dominate this year’s Streakcred. I’ve trained long and hard for this.
