Well the good news is Calgary's season has come to a merciful close, and the better news is I'm almost done having to think about it. But until that wonderful, sunny day comes, I am here considering what has become of one of the better franchises in the Western Conference.

Perhaps the only debate with the potential to be more divisive than the fate of Darryl Sutter this off-season is what to do with Jarome Iginla. And despite the strong emotions and sentiment such a question evokes, his performance this season renders it a legitimate one.

I guess you can call Wednesday the official end of the season for the Calgary Flames, as the players did their traditional locker cleanup and exit interviews with the coaching staff and management. Monday it was Darryl Sutter and Ken King giving their thoughts on a disappointing season. While that session didn't seem to satisfy anyone, I felt we heard a little more from players on Wednesday afternoon

The 1st year Abbotsford Heat will begin their quest for the Calder Cup tonight as they visit the Blue Cross Arena in Rochester to take on the Americans. So since our beloved Flames failed to make the playoffs in the big show, we decided to turn our attention to the farm... Welcome to HeatNation.

I was supportive of the move to bring in Brent Sutter this past off-season. Although I was ambivalent about Mike Keenan's coaching over his tenure, I liked Sutter's resume, his results in New Jersey and the fact that he had an established history with some of the Flames players (Boyd, Dawes, Phaneuf). He had guided a Devils team featuring the cheapest blueline in the league and half a season of Scott Clemmensen to a division title the year prior - a team that boasted some impressive stats across the board. With the Flames needing to tighten up the defense, it seemed like a natural fit.
