For the sound of it, he didn't appear all that happy here - that may explain his performance on the ice.
The "greatest" fans comment was a low blow though
i'm not sure that saying Flames fans are teh best going is a blow to another teams fans... you have to remember what he and the rest of the Flames experienced in teh spring of 2004 in regards to the fan support... i think it was meant to praise flames fans not dis the kings fans
yea, EVERYTHING, the oilers did (expect sing the national anthem which was just a response to san joses disrespect) in the playoffs, the car flags, whyte ave (come on, that is a blatent copy-cat) was a copy of what the flames did.
the flyers had the orange crush. which they accomplished by giving away t-shirts at the door, as did the san jose crowd. the flames had fan support UNMATCHED by anyone in the league in at least 10 years(and thats being polite to the dynastys of the 70's and 80's), unquestionably.
anyone who wants to argue with me can try, but if you werent here in the 2nd/3rd round, not even the finals, and you were on macleod trail, or deerfoot or whichever big road in calgary and didnt hear constant horns going. (something i really missed in the 04/05 playoffs) you have no place to say a word dissing the fan support our flames had, and believe you me, that made a difference and conroy as did the rest of the player in the league (as much as you wanna think you do, you dont know how the players think) recognised this. the fan support was unmatched and i know conroy is happy to be back here.
on a bad note, i dont think he will be more then a third liner with powerplay time. you cant push aside langkow and/or lombardi, but still conroy is a great addition and will pay off for calgary.
I owe many people an apology. On here and various other boards I ridiculed a few posters for suggesting we would get Conroy back. I always maintained that I really liked Conroy, but that unfortunately we would never see him in the Flaming C again.
