Eric Francis had another musing about why he’s leaving the other day:
The fact that Calgary is far from his St. Louis roots, is across a border and is devoid of a modern rink doesn’t help the Flames’ cause.
Gotta get that jab in about the City of Calgary not ponying up even more public money to billionaire owners for a new rink!
Jesus, did the owners wave a twenty in front of him while he was writing?

Has any player ever said "I didn't want to be here because the arena's too old?"

Another Tkachuk piece in The Athletic, more of this BS
Has nobody been paying attention to the information that has been leaking out? Gaudreau and Tkachuk are leaving Canada because of the way our loser PM has been enforcing the COVID protocols and “vax” mandates, etc. Until this country gets rid of Trudeau we can all just say goodbye to all the American players on Canadian teams.

Pretty sure Ottawa just signed two American stars to 8 year deals in the last year with Tkachuk and Norris

HOCKEY CANADA STATEMENT
July 22, 2022|
Favourite (0)
CALGARY, Alta. – The following is a statement on behalf of Hockey Canada:

“Yesterday evening, Hockey Canada learned of an alleged group sexual assault from 2003 involving members of the 2002-03 National Junior Team after being contacted by Rick Westhead of TSN/CTV National News with disturbing details of the alleged incident. Mr. Westhead informed Hockey Canada he has spoken to multiple witnesses who provided him with explicit descriptions of an assault, following an interview with Conservative MP John Nater who is in possession of the same or similar information.

Oh, cool. Fucking cool.

Surprisingly not a lot of "big" names on that junior team. It's MA Fleury, CL faves Kyle Wellwood, Carlo Colaiacovo and Joffrey Lupul, and a bunch of guys you know but were not stars. BUT STILL!
