I’ve posted the most recent line combinations that I’m guessing will be the way the Flames line up for the first game against San Jose. Check out the 2013 Calgary Flames depth cart page here.

So we are only one day into camp and already we’re dealing with injuries. Iginla has a sore groin (probably from screwing over fans) so he may miss camp. That’s certainly not going to help his historic slow starts. Cervenka has not yet been cleared to skate with contact, and from the ‘does he even still play here’ files, Babchuk is out for 3-4 weeks with shoulder injury.
- Anton Babchuk (Donbass Donetsk, KHL)
- Mikael Backlund (Vasteras, Swedish Elite)
- Sven Baertschi(Abbotsford, AHL)
- T.J. Brodie (Abbotsford, AHL)
- Paul Byron (Abbotsford, AHL)
- Roman Cervenka (Slavia Praha, Czech League)
- Roman Horak (Abbotsford, AHL)
- Jiri Hudler (Lev Praha, KHL)
- Krys Kolanos(Abbotsford, AHL)
The 2013 48-game NHL regular season begins on Saturday, January 19.
For you non-math-types, that’s a three month season that starts in nine days.
I guess the quickest way to forget about this whole fiasco is to get things going as quickly as possible, before the fans have too much time to think about what just happened. Will the fans return? You bet we will, but we’ll feel icky doing it.
There are no winners here, all sides lost.
And nobody noticed, how depressing.
I take solace in the fact that there was not one single piece of NHL news in the last 30 days. Even though all the NHL reporters are still NHL reporting. Also depressing.
The National Hockey League announced the cancellation of the 2012-13 regular-season schedule through November 30 because of the absence of a Collective Bargaining Agreement between the NHL Players’ Association and the NHL.
A total of 326 regular-season games – 26.5 percent of the season — were scheduled for Oct. 11 through Nov. 30.
Most importantly I was supposed to see the Calgary/Vancouver and Ottawa/Montreal season openers, the Hockey Hall Of Fame game in Toronto, and the Caps vs. Leafs during those six weeks. Now the NHL and NHLPA has ruined that. Thanks a lot.
I heard that when an agreement is made, and the games are scheduled (this year or next) that the fans should all show up at that first game dressed in black. For that game there will be no cheering, just 60 mins of black silence. Because we all know we’ll return to the game when the players do, so you may as well show some sign of solidarity.
