Good day to you, Nation. Welcome to what is now both 2013 and a post lockout utopian dream. Surely with all the news of ratified CBAs, schedule planning, game matchups, shortened training camps, and what is surely to be an exciting blend of rusty hockey players blowing three goal leads and highlight reel dangles, you can expect FlamesNation to lend it's unique stance and unparalleled voice of the Community of The Flaming C throughout all their trials and tribulations this upcoming campaign.
Today though, we pan an ex-Calgary Flame who played a total of 59 games with the team more than 20 years ago and is, at best, entirely forgettable, because, well mostly because it was ahead in the queue and we don't play games with the queue. So with that in mind, Gary Leeman, this is your Two Minutes Hate.

1. It's starting
I swear to you that I wanted to enter this season with some amount of positivity until I got a list of inquiries from Kent on Monday night. That FlamesNation roundtable, which was published yesterday morning, asked a lot of tough question to which I found myself more than aggrieved by most of the answers.

Welly. Welly. Welly. If our old friends at Bodog didn't release the odds of winning the Stanley Cup now that the lockout has ended - a mere 145 months after it began. Good news in these parts up here in Edmonton, because it confirms something we already knew - The Oilers are awesome.

With training camp finally opening on Sunday we here at FN figured it was time for another roundtable. I asked VF, Ryan, Justin and Lambert for their take on a variety of topics, from their feelings on the lock-out to what they expect to see in terms of line combinations this year. Here's what they had to say...

Speculation is flying that Kovalchuk might stay in the KHL, Ryan O'Reilly is still playing until he signs a new deal with the Avalanche, and KHL President Medvedev is pretty much threatening war against the NHL.
Ignore the KHL now? The fun might just be getting started. Enjoy!
