Today Flames goaltender Roman Turek and former Flames captain Dave Lowry both announced their retirements from the NHL. Turek will likely return to the Czech Republic to play for a club team, while Lowry joins the WHL's Calgary Hitmen as an assistant coach.
Both moves were pretty much expected, what with the Flames trading for former Avalanche goaltender Phillipe Sauve yesterday.
Read an interesting letter in SI today and wanted to get the boards take: the gist of the was that Hockey is a north south game rather than an east west game. and that the main camera angle should reflect this. The way it does in EA's NHL series.
