With Rob Kerr leaving FAN960 earlier this summer to become the Flames play-by-play man on Sportsnet TV, a vacancy was created in the afternoons on Sportsnet Radio. After an exhaustive search, the powers that be have finally found their man... err, men.

(Today we debut VF's Voice of the Nation - a weekly from a more fan friendly perspective)
For months we have talked about what the Calgary Flames need to do this off-season to not only remain competitive in this upcoming season, but to also enhance and secure a viable future, with a refocused look on drafting and development in the farm system. This week we debut "Voice of the Nation", grassroots look at what a team can do from within to dig themselves out of mediocrity and strive towards being a contender once more.

This is clearly one of those pieces that I’d rather not have to write, since I’m compelled to discuss a player that, if I had my druthers, would have had the chance to author a Conroy-style coda over the next few years. A player enjoying a period of graceful aging and a nice retirement ceremony is a rare thing to witness in the modern world, though, and yesterday, Daymond Langkow became the latest athlete asked to move along as he neared the gloaming.

Seeing the Calgary Flames deal Daymond Langkow to Phoenix in exchange for Lee Stempniak left me with a very similar feeling to Calgary's deal with Buffalo at the draft in Minnesota. While it sucks to see Langkow leave, I can understand the rationale behind moving a 35 year old forward who has played next to no hockey over the last year. He may still be a very effective player, but it's tough to see how Langkow fits into the longterm plans of the Flames.
