Calgary Flames.


We went to see the Flames play Vacnouver at The Saddle Dome when we were skiing in Banff last January.

They came from 2-1 down to win 4-2.

And I lovesd every minute of it  \:D/


You lucky git. I went there three years ago and they were away. I went back two years ago and all the players were on strike.

Maybe it's you? I've heard about your bad luck.

I know, see they got off to their usual flyer. My Uncle really loves them.... a dislike that intense he follows Montreal.

Another tough season ahead for my Phoenix Coyotes but after being a Villa fan for over 30years  I think I will be able to cope.


What do you think of "The Great One" as a Head Coach ?

I suspect that he'll be like many great players in other sports in that he'll never be able to see why his players can't do the things he could (see Ted Williams as an example).


He seems to be pretty good coach and obviously he gets the respect of the players but it is not a hockey town,so I think he may be fighting a losing battle.

Talking of bad luck at ice hockey.... a friend of mine goes to Streatham when Dulwich Hamlet aren't playing. He sits behind the goal.

One evening the puck soars over the protective barrier and catches him right in the middle of his forehead, lays his skin open to the bone.

He still has a jagged scar there. Everyone refers to him as `the boy wizard'

Whilst the rest of you were suffering the England game, I was at "The Big Blue Tent" down in Cardiff Bay watching the mighty Cardiff Devils win their eleventh game in a row to storm to the top of the Elite League.

The Devils are playing a top of the table clash away against the Coventry Blaze on Sat 24th Nov. So, if you want to see Wales'** finest in action, the Coventry Skydome is the place to be.

Even da Beeb have the story


(** - OK, so its really a bunch of Canadians and Americans plus one guy from Kazakhstan who grew up in Canada but plays international hockey for Israel)

Here's a clue, it's an NHL thread in the off topic section. What do you want?
