BACK ON ICE

After battling to overcome a serious injury and plenty of adversity, Ladislav Smid set for return to the game with his hometown Czech Republic club

by GEORGE JOHNSON @GJohnsonFlamescalgary / calgaryflames.com

The uniform hasn't changed one iota. That Tiger logo so familiar to Czech Extraliga partisans still snarls out from the front of the jersey.

Home base remains the 9,000-seat Tipsport Arena in Liberec, with a population of 102,000 the sixth largest city in the Republic.

And a quick check of the Bílí Tygři Liberec team website confirms that his old number, 15, isn't in use at the moment.

Checks off all the boxes.

"It's so … cool,'' says Ladislav Smid,

"Not only to go home again, where my family and friends are, to play for the team that really raised me for the NHL. But to be able to play at all."

37 FOR 37: KIP-KIP-HOORAY!

A deal for a little depth between the pipes landed the Flames a superstar

by GEORGE JOHNSON @GJohnsonFlames / calgaryflames.com

The deal, admitted coach/GM Darryl Sutter, was made mostly out of necessity.

Flames' No.-1 Roman Turek had been sidelined indefinitely by a bum knee. Young Dany Sabourin found himself in tough trying to get up to speed to NHL calibre shooters and career caddy Jamie McLennan was on the verge of being burned out.

On the flip side, a 27-year-old largely-unheard-of Finn, Miikka Kiprusoff, had lost a battle in Silicon Valley to Vesa Toskala as back up to San Jose Sharks' starter Evgeni Nabokov.

Reduced to nothing more than a practice goaltender, Kiprusoff was eager to be moved.

37 FOR 37: TONGUE LASHING

Of all the legendary toe-to-toe tilts in the history of the Battle of Alberta, MacT vs. Harvey was one of the dog-gone wildest ones

by GEORGE JOHNSON @GJohnsonFlames / calgaryflames.com

From a northerners' standpoint, the scoreline was downright depressing - 4-0 Flames.

And only nine minutes remained on the Saddledome scoreclock to overturn the sizeable deficit and his team hadn't shown any particular signs of a quick renaissance.

So, in an owly mood to begin with, Craig MacTavish wasn't about to stand for any extracurricular guff. 

Certainly none from an oversized dog cheerleader with a porkpie red hat and long red cloth tongue lolling out of its mouth.

37 FOR 37: THE GREATEST

Iginla's 2001-02 campaign marks one of the greatest statistical seasons in Flames history

by GEORGE JOHNSON @GJohnsonFlames / calgaryflames.com

He'd go on to scale unprecedented heights for this franchise, setting career standards in the colours that threaten to stand forever.

Scrolling back to 2001-2002, though, Jarome Iginla could be considered at the very peak of his considerable powers.

"Looking back,'' Flames' assistant GM Craig Conroy is saying, "I honestly don't know how he didn't win it (Hart Trophy) that year.

"Jose Theodore had a great season, too, but …"

Conroy shakes his head.

"I mean, I realize I'm a bit biased, being a teammate and a friend, but that year … Jarome just did it all. Fought. Scored goals. Won the (Art Ross). Was our leader.

"Everything."
