We've all heard of long weekends but the Calgary Flames' upcoming weekend might seem especially long.
The boys in crimson are off as far as regularly scheduled National Hockey League action is concerned but head coach/chief critic might have some very labour-intensive chores in mind for his chaps between now and the resumption of play on Monday night when the St. Louis Blues visit the House That Kevin Lavallee Built.

Much of the talk this past week in the hockey world revolved around another ridiculously stupid play in junior hockey. Patrice Cormier elbowed Mikael Tam with a disgustingly cheap elbow in overtime that left Tam convulsing on the ice. It wasn’t pretty, and Cormier will learn his fate this Monday.

So the Calgary Flames are a not-that-nifty 50 games into the 2009-2010 National Hockey League season.
While Monday's debacle at the Shark Tank creates the impression the Flames are heading towards rock-bottom, a fairer bigger-picture view of the whole affair suggests that once they pull out of their current death spiral, they will once again be a club that barely makes or barely misses the post-season.

Nine FREAKING one!? In a 'measuring stick' matchup against one of the premier teams in the league? With Kiprusoff in goal? Naw, not this defensive juggernaut. Not a chance!
