thoughts on the game?
Will the Kipper start in goal? Will he relieve Turek part way through the game? Will he sit out and watch Turek play the full 60 minutes?
Personally, the thing I'm watching for is how the fans take to Dany Heatley. Being his home town and all, you'd think that Calgary would be more supportive than anyone else, but I don't think I could really bring myself to go out of my way to support for a guy with a history such as his. Great hockey player, yes. Player who's on my good side for his play alone, yes. Guy who should be given a standing ovation for something other than his play, not a chance.
That said, he'll probably move people from their seats by his presence alone, it'd be kind of nice to actually be there to see how everyone reacts, and not how sportsnet spins it.
