Brent Sutter Admits That Backlund Needs Sheltering


What more can I say? Backlund hurts the team, Conroy and Boyd should have been above him on the depth chart. Open and fucking shut.

Burrows Accuses Official Of Biased Calls


So Alex Burrows last night was victimized on a couple blown calls, and sounded off saying as much. Having watched the highlights, I agree the calls were blown. And if what Burrows says is true (that the referee actually was out to get him) it sets an uncomfortable precedent. I find it ironic though that Burrows is complaining. Frankly I don't think he has a leg to stand vis-a-vis complaining about blown calls - mostly because he's already on his knees after a dive. I find this choice bit from the article especially entertaining: Burrows was referring to an incident back in December when the Preds' Smithson hit Burrows and was given a major penalty for charging and a game misconduct. On Monday night, Burrows said Auger was getting back at him. "When Smithson hit me from sideways and he (Auger) said, 'I saw the replay, you had your head up, you weren't really hurt and you made me look bad so I'm going to get you back tonight,' and he did, and he cost us two points. This douche regularly victimizes officials with his antics. The play in question was particularly brutal. I figure if he's drawn 15 blown penalties over the course of the last two seasons that's 3 undeserved goals - or a point that he has cost the opposition. So it's richly ironic that he's complaining about losing points to blown calls. But the alleged intent behind the calls is troublesome. Side effect: this overshadows LaserGate, and just for our own entertainment that should be front and centre.

Flames jump the queue for flu vaccine


Apparently the Flames brass decided to jump the line to get vaccines for several Flames players and family members. I can see why they would do it - millions are on the line when dealing with the health of players - but given the shortage in Canada, couldn't they just have bought these vaccines from private clinics in the US instead?

A Day Late, A Buck Short: G9, Blue Jackets at Flames Post-Game


The Flames play their best game at even-strength against the suddenly-legitimate Columbus Blue Jackets. Despite getting horribly outclassed in special teams, they managed to turn their EV dominance into a 6-3 win.

Only seven games into the 2009-2010 NHL campaign the Boston Bruins have sent forward Chuck Kobasew to the Minnesota Wild. In return the Bruins will receive winger Craig Weller, a second round pick in 2011, and the rights to prospect Alexander Fallstrom.

After a 3-game losing streak, the Flames had something to prove against their NW division rivals, the Vancouver Canucks. Despite the 5-3 win, all they proved was that they still have something to prove.

In Calgary, the Flames are right up against the cap with a talented squad that added Bouwmeester during the offseason. Where that leaves UFA-bound Olli Jokinen remains to be seen. "Management wants to see how the team plays early in the season and what role Olli has in that, and then we'll see how we proceed from there," said Jokinen's agent, Mark Gandler. "It looks like the changes the team made are positive changes, and it's the right team for Olli. I know Olli feels that way and the GM feels that way. So we'll see what happens."

Sutter's going to wait on Jokinen (Tip of the hat to CP [blech])
