A couple of things came out of practice today for the Flames. Firstly, the NHL named Jarome Iginla the NHL player of the week. Let’s hope he can continue his tear on the three game road-trip.

One persona who won’t be making the trip (or playing in games) is Curtis Glencross who’s been suspended for three games after his blindside hit on Chris Drury. I don’t mind the suspension although it’s tough for Glencross given his bad play as of late. We need suspensions like this so sports fans don’t think the NHL is a joke when it comes blatant disregard for hits to the head.
