It was September 5th of 2013, and your Calgary Flames had just hired Brian “Brian” Burke as their shiny, new President of Hockey Operations and “not General Manager”. The move at the time seemed to draw a line down the middle that divided the Cowtown faithful in reference their confidence in the new hire and, more importantly, the future success of their beloved franchise.
It was obvious to everyone when then GM Jay Feaster shipped Jarome Iginla and Jay Bouwmeester to new return addresses in the lockout shortened 2013 season that a new era was being ushered in at the Scotiabank Saddledome; a period of rebirth many felt was long overdue. In short, a rebuild. If you’re reading this, you already knew that.
Brian Burke, one way or another, became emblematic of the Calgary rebuild, but only in the sense that this accepted 3-4 year process of planned upheaval was suddenly in peril, given Burke’s spirit of competition and also more tellingly, all the troubling things he’d say whenever he would open his mouth…..

So we have all seen them… Personalized jerseys. There are people who put their own last names on a pro jersey or try to make the last name say something witty. For example: A Vancouver Canucks Jersey that has the last name STANLEY CUPS? and it’s number is 0. What are some funny or humorous personalize jerseys you have seen?
Here’s a couple
Iggy scored 2 goals against the Capitals yesterday to reach the 30 goal mark for the 12th time. His torrid pace over the last few weeks has him playing how most Flames fans remember him. Congrats Iggy! I know most of Calgary will be cheering for you on your march towards the cup!
Iggy hit 30 goals tonight. Thats 12 x 30 goal seasons. Congrats IGGY!
As a Flames fan it is still hard to watch Jarome Iginla don another team’s jersey. Yes I am excited that the youngsters are getting to play in Calgary but it’s almost like when your childhood hero retires (in my case Chipper Jones). It just makes you feel sad and old ( maybe old is the wrong word) because of all the time and memories you had watching a franchise player but now he’s gone. Nonetheless , Iggy has started his patented spring heat up in Boston and is on pace (ish) to get to that 30 goal mark again. He has 11 straight 30 goal seasons ( not counting the lock out season) Can he do it? He is 10 goals away. As a Flames fan I’m rooting for him. IGGY IGGY IGGY!
This goalie got shelled, pulled himself , went to locker room, and left mid game. Has anyone ever seen anything like this? This is crazy.
