Flames to have 25 Nationally Televised Games

+

Get the popcorn shelf stocked. The Calgary Flames will have 25 games broadcast nationally during the 2010-11 National Hockey League season. A total of 24 regular season games, including a visit from Alex Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals on October 30, and, of course, the Heritage Classic outdoor game at McMahon Stadium on February 20, are among the nationally televised games. The CBC will televise 14 games while TSN will televise 11 games, including a pre-season game when the Phoenix Coyotes visit Calgary on Sept. 28. The Flames season-opener, versus provincial rival Edmonton on Oct. 7, will be broadcast on the CBC as the NHL kicks off the regular season. Four of the six Battle of Alberta games will be broadcast nationally. The Flames will face their other Western Canadian rival, Vancouver, five times on national broadcasts. You can also see the Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks take on the Flames at the Saddledome on Nov. 19 on national television. The Flames regional broadcaster, Sportsnet West, recently signed a new, unprecedented 10-year deal with both Calgary and Edmonton. Beginning with the upcoming 2010-11 NHL season, Rogers Sportsnet West and Rogers Sportsnet ONE will combine to televise at least 58 Calgary Flames and 58 Edmonton Oilers games for 10 seasons within the Flames and Oilers regional territory which includes Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Northwest Territories and Nunavut. There will no longer be Flames and Oilers Pay Per View broadcasts. Sportsnet, the Flames and the Oilers will announce the Sportsnet schedule in the near future. Credit to Flames.com

Jarome Iginla and how he got involved in Hockey

Calgary to get outdoor game next season. Against the Habs?

24

I think we all knew this was going to happen but the team we're facing is new to me. It won't be the Canucks, but the Canadiens. From the TSN story: While outdoor hockey may well be the last thing on fans minds at the moment, the NHL will formally announce the locations of dual Winter Classic games next season. The Pittsburgh Penguins will host the Washington Capitals at Heinz Field on New Year's Day, while the Montreal Canadiens will travel to Calgary sometime in February to face the Flames at McMahon Stadium. This will be the second time that a Canadian city has hosted an outdoor game after Edmonton's Commonwealth Stadium set the standard in the inaugural Winter Classic between the Oilers and Canadiens in 2003. This will also be the second time that the Pittsburgh Penguins have been involved in the Winter Classic after they faced the Buffalo Sabres at Ralph Wilson Stadium in 2008.

Winnipeg to find out soon if the Coyotes will come back home.

+

Seeing that the Reinsdorf deal looks to be falling though the NHL will notify the city of Winnipeg whether or not the Yotes will come back to the city they called home for three decades. A deal will be in place within the next three weeks or sooner. Quebec City, Kansas City and Las Vegas are also possible bets but both Quebec and Vegas need deals for new arenas soon.

Jim Playfair snaps after he disagrees with a call that see's JD Watt getting 5 and a game. The good stuff is around the 3 Minute mark but this is just the cherry on the top of a very tough season in the Flames organization at least the Heat will be in the playoffs.

2010-2011 NHL Jersey Watch.

+

"Let's get this out of the way first. There are 15 teams that will not be changing their home, road or alternate jerseys in 2010. They are: Atlanta, Boston, Carolina, Chicago, Colorado, Edmonton, Florida, Los Angeles, Minnesota, Ottawa, Phoenix, San Jose, St. Louis, Tampa Bay and Vancouver. In addition, Detroit, Montreal, New Jersey and Washington are the only 4 teams that do not have third jerseys and do not plan on adding or changing anything." Anaheim - Adding 3rd Jersey, Home & Away remain unchanged. Buffalo - Killing of Buffaslug, 3rd becoming Home, Away becoming similar to the retro jersey of old, 3rd jersey will feature Buffalo script with logo and number on the jersey below the script. Calgary - Making 30th Anniversary Jersey full time 3rd, Home & Away unchanged. Columbus - New 3rd with Cannon Logo, Home & Away unchanged. Dallas - Road & Alternate swap, The one with the Stars logo is now the 3rd. Nashville - New Home & Road, 3rd becomes home new Away no 3rd Jersey. NY Islanders - New Road, 3rd to become the new home is unconfirmed. NY Rangers - Introduction of a 3rd Jersey, Unknown if Lady Liberty's head will be used again. Philadelphia - New road jersey possibly the Winter Classic jersey. Pittsburgh - New 3rd unknown if Baby Blue will be used but Blue will be used possibly the older darker blue they used back in the day. Toronto - New Home & Away but won't be a major overhaul, white stripes and blue stripes will make a return, Also new Shoulder Patch. The Retro 3rd will remain. Taken from the very useful Icethetics NHL Logo and Jersey blog.

Matt Cooke Will not be suspended for his hit on Marc Savard.

How can this happen. Collie was comparing this to the Mike Richards hit on Booth saying that "Philadelphia's Mike Richards was not suspended for a similar hit on Florida's David Booth, so Cooke was not disciplined either." And the main adjective for the GM's this week is what again?

Dion Phaneuf to the East?

5

According to the rumor producer ESPN insider. Dion Phaneuf could be headed to the tri-state area. Now the problem with ESPN Insider is that you have to pay for it to look at the full rumor and they give you a preview of the first sentence to entice the reader to buy it the sentence says the following. ''Stud Blueliner could be getting closer to Avery.'' Take this for what it is but if this is true and if someone of prominence comes the other way I'm all for it. So if anyone out there has access to ESPN Insider please enlighten us on the situation, till then all we can do is speculate and make up what the trade could be.
