The Calgary Flames are proud to announce that they will wear a fusion design jersey honouring the history of professional hockey in Calgary (inspired by the Calgary Tigers’ uniform) for the Heritage Classic at McMahon Stadium on February 20, 2011 versus the Montreal Canadiens.

"And the best, I must confess, I have saved for the last, for the ruler of this Christmas land,

is a fearsome king with a deep mighty voice, least, that's what I've come to understand.

And I've also heard it told, that he's something to behold, like a lobster, huge and red!

When he sets out to slay with his rain gear on, carting bulging sacks with his big great arms, that is so I've heard it said.

And on a dark cold night, under full moon light, he flies into a fog like a vulture in the sky!

And they call him Sandy Claws!

Makes you wonder whether they truly don't recognize the hideousness or truly don't care.

Consider that this is the same franchise that thought the "Snot Horse" was a good idea, and I think you'll find your answer...

Why couldn't those idiots just wear the same jerseys they did in the 80's.

They wore those jerseys a lot last year and it looked great. Why the urge to do something idiotic when a special event comes up?

That being said, they should play against the Canucks, who should bust out the Flying-V.

I think they're trying to ensure a win by inducing seizures on the ice with those. It's the only explanation I can think of.
Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

if you buy the jersey and wear it to the game you get a free big mac and large fries. this heritage classic is going to be largely uneventful. calgary and montreal will both suck pretty hard this year. i wish it was toronto vs. ottawa or something like that. make the game interesting. not calgary, who is evidently rebuilding BIGTIME! i'll be playing NHL 11 while this s*** and the pens are playing on new years. f***, i used to like the flames before sutter destroyed their roster over the past couple seasons. i mean, sign bouwmeester and not cammalleri...the guy got you 42 goals and iggy finally had someone legit to play with.

Even funnier for me watching? What in the good lords name was Steve Staois doing there talking for calgary?!?! He's a bum! He should be a buyout candidate, not the face of the Heritage classic. God I love how terrible Calgarys gotten :D
