Obviously it's the news of the day, and we're not breaking anything, but Craig Conroy has announced his retirement after 17 seasons in the NHL. Conroy had two seperate stints with the Flames, and he remains in the organization, being named Special Assistant to the Acting General Manager.
Our new contributer Kristen Odland will have a piece up on Conroy shortly, but here's an opportunity to talk about his time with the Flames in the comments section.

Impressive is not the word I'd use to describe Calgary's 4-2 win over the Atlanta Thrashers, but what is impressive is a six game win streak, and that's exactly what the Flames are riding heading into a huge game against the LA Kings on Saturday night. Mikael Backlund scored an odd one late in the third period to put Calgary up by one and they'd weather the storm from there on out as the team continues their push towards a playoff spot.

The tone of the Nation comments as of late has been a whole lot more positive, and why not? The Flames are playing their best hockey of the season by far, and they're making things interesting for their fans, riding a five game win streak. Tonight, they return to where it all started: Atlanta, Georgia for their only meeting with the Thrashers this season (5 pm, Sportsnet West and Sportsnet Radio FAN 960).
