And it would happen to in Calgary if they had a real night scene.
Shit like this happens everywhere, when a) you have alcohol b) boys with small .... c) boys with egos bigger than their small ....

2004: The Flames ride Kiprusoff to the finals and lose in game 7. For some unknown reason hockey "minds" everywhere are suddenly calling them next year's favorites to win it all.....and Calgary's management and fans drank that Kool-Aid like it was the gospel when what they should have done is seen that Iginla and Kiprusoff do not a team make. They painted some of their players as the type of guy that every team should build around when really they only had two who fit that bill. Now, almost 10 years later they are one of the worst teams in the league, and got next to nothing for their two superstars at the end of the day. It's hilarious really, in 8 seasons they never added a single piece that got them closer to being a contender, they didn't draft anyone of note other than Phaneuf, a neanderthal who ended up proving he actually did look the part. I almost pity them.
2006: The Oilers ride a hot goaltender, a lucky Horcoff, and Chris Pronger, to the finals and come up a game short. The next year Pronger is gone, and they recognize that it is time to consider re-tooling. They make a few moves that don't pan out, and then tank hard enough to start rebuilding via the draft. They didn't hang on to some blind hope that 2006 wasn't just a fluke, they called a spade a spade, and the only truly bone-headed thing they did was overpay Horcoff by almost 75% of what he's actually worth. Now they just can't attract talent and are proving that they don't actually know how to draft.

Was Kesler diving last game against the Flames?
I didn't get to see the entire game and so I'm not sure.
According to Calpuck however, he made a few dives and was being a dickhead a la Brad Marchand style.
Any truth to this?
If so - I hope Torts has a talk with Kesler to not do that shit. Chirping is ok to an extent, but it only seems that we are NOW SLOWLY beginning to get some objectivity and respect from the refs......due to the perception and understanding that Torts has changed the culture of this team (either that, or the refs do not perceive us to be an elite team anymore and so they don't feel compelled to screw us over).
Regardless - I hope Kesler stops doing that if he was in fact diving.

Brian McGrattan didn’t hear a peep from NHL headquarters Monday morning.
He wasn’t expecting to, either.
The Calgary Flames enforcer didn’t think league disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan would see anything wrong with Sunday’s hit on Andrew Alberts, which resulted in an elbowing major for McGrattan and a concussion for the Vancouver Canucks defenceman.
“I’ve seen the hit. It was a shoulder-to-shoulder hit,” McGrattan said after Monday’s practice at the Saddledome. “Unfortunately, he went down, but the elbow wasn’t up, shoulder wasn’t up. Didn’t target the head. That’s my take on it.”
