It's become a tradition: every year at FlamesNation (and at our sister sites OilersNation and CanucksArmy), our writers and commenters pick their stars — that one player who they will praise without end no matter what — and their goats — their yearly whipping-boy; he who can do no good for the season.

The first instinct is to trot out the old shuffling deck chairs on the Titanic metaphor, but that would be gratuitous.
In case you missed the self-wetting news, the Flames have rearranged the seating arrangement in their dressing room and the party line is that the stall shuffle is a further reminder that things are going to be a little different now that Marshal Brent C. Sutter is patrolling these parts.

Good morning, I hope this Tuesday finds you happy, healthy, and most importantly, that those in your life are doing well.
Nine years ago today my father, William Arthur Gregor, passed away at the young age of 56. The morning of his funeral I couldn’t sleep and decided to write an e-mail to my friends to release my feelings, and since then I type an e-mail in his honour each year, and hope that it somehow lessens the void in my heart and the hearts of my family.
