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.
Because I was bored, and the Cup playoffs obsess me, I did a little analysis of The-W's collective first round preditions. Best Predictor - Dunkndollaz and Big Vito Mark both got 7/8 correct, Dunk missing Montreal, and BVM missing San Jose.
