Good morning, Calgary

Good morning, Calgary, and good morning, Insiders. So! A new arena is coming to Calgary. No shovels are in the ground, obviously, but a deal was finalized earlier this week to build a $550-million new arena to East Victoria Park, which is adjacent to the Calgary Exhibition and Stampede and in clo...

Good morning, Calgary

Good morning, Calgary, and good morning, Insiders. Late night! Our first late night of the season. We spent only 31 minutes in the air, though with an 8:00 p.m. start, a game with lots of stoppages, and a ride to the Edmonton airport that's only a few minutes shy of the extended cut of Kill Bill,...

Good morning, Calgary

Good morning, Calgary, and good morning, Insiders. One last Western Canada trip to rule them all. Other than the truncated 2012-13 season - it has been a while since we said "truncated" or "abbreviated" to describe 2012-13, as we did so many times that year - the Kings have played at least two ga...

Good morning, Calgary

Good morning, Calgary, and good morning, Insiders. Hello from the team hotel downtown, one I'll always remember from a Silvertips road trip early in the 2007-08 season. Every time we arrive here - which is often late at night - I think back to my first extended road trip in the WHL, and how our c... Full Story

Good morning, Calgary

Good morning, Calgary, and good morning, Insiders. I've always enjoyed sharing non-hockey conversation topics in this column, but when losses in six of seven segue into a 6-2 loss to a non-playoff team, it's not the right time to share movie reviews and go Munters hunting. (Admit it, the Munters ... Full Story

Good morning, Calgary

Good morning, Calgary, and good morning, Insiders. The Kings' spread out post-Christmas break, pre-bye week Western Canada jaunt has reached its final stop, and lo, there are tall buildings. They are so tall, in fact, and LAKI is at the base of the U-shaped hotel, that the photos represent the ve... Full Story

Good morning, Calgary

Good morning, Calgary, and good morning, Insiders. I'm at a slight loss for words here, gang. I had already written two sentences of what I had believed would be the final Good Morning post of the season before realizing that no, it isn't, because the Kings play in Vancouver on Thursday. Oops! Ho... Full Story

Good morning, Calgary

Good morning, Alberta, and good morning, Insiders. Good Lord, it's a road game! An actual hockey game played away from the friendly confines of Staples Center that doesn't feature an early rush hour commute from El Segundo to downtown. Technically, I'd be able to commute via light rail - there's ... Full Story

Good morning, Calgary

Good morning, Chicago, St. Louis, Dallas, Nashville, Calgary, and good morning, Insiders. Oh, a Minnesota-Calgary back-to-back, you say? Sure, why not. Based on a quick check, this is the longest distance back-to-back set of games since the Kings played on Long Island and at Dallas on consecutive... Full Story

Good morning, Calgary

Good morning, Calgary, and good morning, Insiders. The team will head to the rink for meetings in just over half an hour, so this will be a short GM, C. But there was an interesting arrival in Calgary last night, when there were high wind warnings in the region and YYC experienced gusts of 75 km/... Full Story

Good morning, Calgary

Good morning, Calgary, and Happy New Year, Insiders. May you and your loved ones be touched with happiness, health and comfort in 2016. How are you celebrating the New Year? Are you still recovering from the Y2K world shutdown? We're looking forward to potentially ringing in the New Year more tha... Full Story

Good morning, Calgary

Good morning, Calgary, and good morning, Insiders. We're in downtown Calgary, and the area around our hotel has turned into a construction zone encompassing several city blocks as new skyscrapers have rapidly emerged from the Eau Clare earth and have seemingly doubled in height since our last vis...
