Browsers of the Hockey Forum here on The W have no doubt noticed my numerous Flames threads...ranging from the NHL's All-Star teams and the acquisition of netminder Miikka Kiprusoff. Now, my Flames are ONE (1) win away from the Stanley Cup. Yes, THAT ONE.
I can't wait until Saturday. This city is gonna EXPLODE.

To add more support to the "Canada is really behind the Flames argument", I was at the Ottawa Renegades CFL exhibition game last night, and the Flames got some great reactions whenever the PA guy announced they were leading during Game 5. What was cooler is someone a few rows in front of me brought a portable TV. Go Flames Go!

I have to disagree. As a hockey fan, I'd be MUCH more interested in seeing the Flames win an OT Game 6 at home, clinching the Cup in front of the home fans.

Wait. You went to a CFL PRESEASON GAME instead of watching the Finals with a Canadian team playing? Can't you get deported for that?
EDIT: Saprykin is a former Seattle Thunderbird. Just wanted to mention it.

Freeway, from that list, how many guys from the Flames have won Cups before? Also, perhaps someone could fill me in on this....have any of the Sutter brothers gotten on that Cup yet? You'd figure the odds are in their favour.

Let's see... Martin Gelinas won with the Oilers in 1990, Olwia didn't play in 2000 with the Devils but still got a ring, Nieminen has a ring from the Avalanche, Turek has a ring from the Stars, Reinprecht has a ring from the Avalanche, Stephane Yelle has 2 rings from the Avalanche and Chris Simon has a ring from the Avalanche. Fun fact...the Cup win by the '89 Flames gave each member of the team their first ring.
And the Sutter brothers...
Brent: 1982 & 1983 with the Isles. Brian: Never. Darryl: Never. Duane: 1981, 1982 & 1983 with the Isles. Rich: Never. Ron: Never.
