Saddledome's nerve centre 'a total loss' to floods, says Flames president

CALGARY - The Calgary Flames say everything below row eight in the hockey team's home arena has been ruined by flooding.

Team president Ken King calls it a total loss — dressing rooms, players' equipment, seats, boards and scoreboard electronics.

King says a player coming out on the ice right now would be completely submerged.

He wouldn't estimate what the repair cost will be, but he believes everything will be covered by insurance.

King says crews have a lot of work ahead of them to be ready for the upcoming season.

Quote of the Day

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.

— Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen on the team's prospects at development camp
