Bob Hartley is going to go over REAL well with the contigent of players who think they run the team. Hartley is a task master whose act wears thin very very quickly even with players who are normally diligent in their duties. There's a reason why he hasn't been in the NHL for several years.

Hartley is connected with Feaster's family, don't know exactly if his sister, daughter, garndma or wife, but that's the reason. :lol:

LOL.... a lot of the mongoloids believe that if D Sutter didn't get the boot in Calgary or if he was forced to go behind the bench that the Flames wouldn't have missed the playoffs the past three years and he'd still have a job there. There have been a few that say the Kings remind them of the Flames....

Whatever they are feeding those poor slugs in that city keep it up. You can't make this shit up. It's like they have the market cornered on village idiots .

God bless you D'Arcy for having a place so retards can discuss hockey.
Tell me how my ass tastes.

What gets me is, that most of those posters were calling for Sutters head last year. I can't believe how many of them have forgotten how badly he screwed the Flames for years to come. I think he's a good guy and all, but I certainly am not happy for him when it comes to winning a cup with the Kings.

Perhaps if he was coach they would have made the playoffs....provided he wasn't GM and perhaps never GM.

But he was GM and messed the franchise up. Though a lot of that blame also goes to ownership. Sutter was under directives to try to do well in the here and now and not really worry about the future. He did what they asked in the end, but had no idea how to do now and future.

Guess I'll plunk this here:

The Eliminator is returning to the Calgary Flames as an assistant coach.

Martin Gelinas, one of the heroes of the franchise’s incredible run to the 2004 Stanley Cup final, is expected to be named to the club’s coaching staff as early as Thursday, the Sun has learned.

When reached by phone Wednesday evening, Gelinas admitted he’s had discussions with the Flames about the post but wouldn’t comment further.

His addition would fill out the club’s coaching staff under new bench boss Bob Hartley, who’s also added Jacques Cloutier as associate coach and is expected to retain goalie coach Clint Malarchuk.

Gelinas, 42, has spent the last three seasons as director of player development for the Nashville Predators, working with the organization’s young players throughout their system.

A first-round draft choice of the Los Angeles Kings in 1988, Gelinas was traded a couple of months later to the Edmonton Oilers in the blockbuster deal that sent Wayne Gretzky to Los Angeles and spent 18 seasons in the NHL with the Oilers, Quebec Nordiques, Vancouver Canucks, Carolina Hurricanes, Flames, Florida Panthers and Predators.

Gelinas spent two seasons win the Flames, with the highlight the 2004 run in which he scored the series-clinching goal in the first three rounds, two of them in overtime.

When his career ended, the affable left-winger had racked up 309 goals and 660 points in 1,273 regular-season games. He also appeared in 147 playoff games and netted 23 goals and 56 points.

He was part of Edmonton’s 1990 Stanley Cup championship team, and reached the finals on three other occasions — Vancouver (1994), Carolina (2002) and Calgary (2004).

Gelinas retired from playing after spending the 2008-09 season with Bern in Switzerland’s top league.

He and his family made Calgary their permanent home.

It appeared the Flames were about to add Eric Veilleux to their staff on Wednesday when the Memorial Cup-winning coach — who has very close ties to Hartley — stepped down from his position with the QMJHL’s Shawinigan Cataractes.

However, Veilleux is reportedly going to coach the QMJHL’s Baie-Comeau Drakkar.


One of my favourite all time Canucks. :(

BC Lions are respected round these parts

BC Lions are respected round these parts

Although the Vancouver Canucks are easily public enemy #1 in Alberta, 960 "The Fan" seems to have a lot of respect for the BC Lions. Don't get me wrong - they don't love the BC Lions, but there's no hatred there either. They really seem to respect what the Lions did last year and also admire the leadership and development of Travis Lulay.

There's no love loss for the Eskimos, but no disdain either. Eskimos are kind of in 'neutral' territory.

Saskatchewan Roughriders are the team that's really despised here on 960, lol. What's interesting to me is that the disdain has lead 960 to make exaagerated and/or BS statements about the Roughriders. Funny how that works.

Where I am however - the Roughriders are absolutely LOVED.........and there is a serious hate on for the Calgary Stampeders.

Someone needs to tell the Mongoloid Farm that Wideman's contract mirrors what is left on Bobby Lou's deal.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

It is different. WIdeman has a NO MOVEMENT CLAUSE, not just a no trade clause.

I guess JBo is on his way out (or at least it seems that way). They overpaid for Wideman, but I guess that's the price of signing free agents. I wonder what Suter is going to get?

Basing it on Wideman's contract, Suter should get about $12M per for 12 years w/full NTC. :lol: ;)
