I don't know what you think a rollercoaster is but you may want to try pendulum in your analogy.

Pendulums are boring, I find the idea of Iggy or Jagr exciting!!

Yes you're right. A pendulum is better to describe the discussion between the two. The rollercoaster I refer to are the emotions I feel. The wild excitement of rumors and possibilities followed by the valleys of no news and no signing as of yet.

What would be nice if is some reporter just asked him straight up if Calgary was an option and clear it all up. Of course you probably wouldn't get a straight answer.

"incarceratedBob" is saying the Islanders and Iginla are talking.

He is pretty rough but has broken Islanders news before.

It actually pains me to say all of this because Mike Vernon is my least favorite Flame of all time, yes, even ahead of Fleury in that regard.

You make being a fan look like so much fun.

Edit: Quote fail on my part. Meant to post this in the Retire #14 thread. Point still stands, but sorry for the irrelevant bump.. Mods, feel free to move/delete.

Team and community before individuals. I cheer for the team, and their success, over that of individuals. The second individuals put themselves before the team is the second I no longer support the player. Teams win. Individuals don't.

You must still work for your first employer, being such a "team player" and all.

Iíve heard Fleury had some unfortunate circumstances growing up, might have contributed to his ďme firstĒ attitude you claim he has.

You might want to practice a little compassion before judging someone like that. Heís been pretty progressive in speaking about the abuse he experienced. I imagine thatís helped a lot of victims.

In any case Fleury is undoubtedly one of the best Flames players of all time, thatís not up for debate.
