Anyway, what year was it that Calgary got off to one of the moat impressive starts ever and then dropped off and ended up missing the playoffs? Wasn't there a season fairly recently in which the flames got off to a record breaking start before a big collapse?

What year was that?

What was the story there?
I believe you mean the season we got Jbo. We were first in the NW until an epic 9 game losing streak that resulted in trading Dion. As the rumor goes, Dion had started to become quiet the partyer and got a little friendly with one of the flames players wives (I believe the rumor was Conroy's). It all ended apparently with Dion and Regehr in a shouting match and Iginla telling Sutter it was Dion or him. Don't ask for sources it has been years doubt I can find any but that is one of the rumors I heard.
