Flames forward Jarome Iginla will undoubtedly be the subject of trade rumors this season, but should potential buyers beware? Maybe they should, according to one of Iginla’s former teammates. Retired ex-teammate Rhett Warrener on his radio show questioned whether or not Iginla still has that flame burning as he plays for the lowly Flames. “His greatest asset was his shot but more importantly his compete-level — his refuse-to-lose attitude — and now you are watching and … it’s not there,” Warrener said, according to the Calgary Sun (with a stick tap to ProHockeyTalk.) “He’s not Dany Heatley-slow, but he’s not getting there. I don’t know if he’s slowed down and his compete-level has followed, but you don’t see that compete and fire in his eye now. I think you see frustrating setting in.” The frustation, of course, would be understandable. Calgary is tied for the fewest points in the league, and Iginla’s production has been somewhat nonexistent. He has just one goal and five assists

NHL Fights: Antoine Roussel Vs. Jarome Iginla

How rare is it for Jarome Iginla, a guy with 1,081 career NHL points, to drop the gloves? Last night’s fight with Antoine Roussel was his first this season and sixth in the last three years. It’s not that rare, but still impressive to see a guy who consistently goes 30-30+ in the goals-assists department to throw down. As for Roussel, he was playing in just his sixth NHL game...

Keeping An Eye On Iginla And Smyth

from Mark Spector of Sportsnet, They are the same guy, in so many ways. Jarome Iginla and Ryan Smyth. A northern Alberta kid who captains the Calgary Flames; a Southern Alberta kid playing most of a 1,200-game career with the Edmonton Oilers. One, the face of the Flames franchise and favourite son of owner Murray Edwards. Another, whose flowing mullet and oversized...

Mascot 'moons' Stars player during interview

During an interview between periods, former Calgary Flames player and current Dallas Stars player Eric Nystrom was mooned by the Calgary Flames mascot.  Harvey the Hound obviously felt that this was the proper way to welcome Nystrom back to Calgary, and I’m sure Nystrom thought it was funny.  Unfortunately for Nystrom, his homecoming wasn’t that great, as the Flames beat the...

Bill Meltzer: Star Gazing: Burned by the Flames

The Dallas Stars' four-game winning streak crashed and burned in Calgary last night, as the team got pummeled 7-4 in a game highlighted by a Michael Cammalleri hat trick. Dallas was never able to recover from a disastrous first period in which in fell behind by scores of 3-0 and 4-1. The bottom line here is that, yet again, Glen Gulutzan's team produced a clunker in the...

Final Dallas Stars 4 - Calgary Flames 7 The Positives: There are very few positives in a 7-4 loss against one of the worst teams in the league. Ummmm, Brenden Morrow wasn't too bad this game.
