I'm not sure what makes him a loser. He was sexually abused by his coach in junior hockey for years. It's amazing that he was strong enough to become a star player in the NHL. Sheldon Kennedy was not as fortunate.

1 Gold Medal
1 Best selling book

He's accomplished quite a fair amount in his life...

Fleury’s hardships and personal demons have been no secret in recent years. The crafty forward spent more than 10 productive seasons as a star with the Calgary Flames. Things spiralled out of control during the past few seasons. Fleury missed dozens of games due to voluntary and forced stints in the league’s substance-abuse program. He struggled through a 2001-02 campaign littered with bizarre incidents, including a fight with a team mascot and an obscene gesture to a fan.
He missed the first 25 contests of 2002-03 for violating terms of his aftercare program and was involved in a mid-season strip club fracas during the least productive season of his 15-year NHL career. The latest insult: he was waived by the Chicago Blackhawks last season and remained unclaimed.

I met him back in the 90's and he was a drunken idiot who liked to grab alot if ya know what I mean.

We all have our demons but some of us know how to deal with it.

Well it finally looks like he has conquored his demons. He has been sober for 4 years and is now married. Hopefully he will lead a productive life outside hockey.

FLAMES DESTROY LEAFS!!!!!!!



TORONTO (AP) -Calgary coach Brent Sutter was not happy even after the Flames' 5-2 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday night.
"Yeah, I'm (upset)," Sutter said Saturday. "I wasn't pleased at all tonight."

Jarome Iginla scored two goals and Miikka Kiprusoff made 38 saves to lift the Flames.
"The positives here tonight is that we got two points, our goaltender played very well, the captain scored two goals and we got a goal on our power play," Sutter said. "Other than that, it's wasn't a great game on our behalf. We were fortunate to get a win."

Eric Nystrom, Dustin Boyd and Jay Bouwmeester also had goals for the Flames, who rebounded from a 2-1 shootout loss on Friday.
Francois Beauchemin and Matt Stajan scored for Toronto, which has earned just four points in nine home games (1-6-2) this season.
Maple Leafs coach Ron Wilson was left to explain his team's latest loss.

"At the end of the day, you say it's too much Iginla and too much Kiprusoff," he said.
Iginla and Nystrom scored 16 seconds apart in the first 1:37 - a pair of goals that starting goalie Jonas Gustavsson probably should have stopped.
That left Toronto trailing 2-0 for the ninth time in 18 games this season.

Beauchemin soon started Toronto on the comeback trail. Niklas Hagman was screening Kiprusoff when Beauchemin one-timed a point shot into the net at 5:24 of the first.

However, Boyd followed up on his own blocked shot and backhanded the puck past Gustavsson at 9:54. That prompted Leafs coach Ron Wilson to replace his rookie goalie with Vesa Toskala, who had a good effort during the team's 3-2 loss in Chicago a night earlier.

Toskala seemed to help calm things down and Toronto carried much of the play for the next 30 minutes, outshooting the Flames 20-4 in the second period.

"They really bounced back," Kiprusoff said. "The second period, we weren't ready for that."
Only one of those shots, a backhanded rebound by Stajan, got behind Kiprusoff.
Kiprusoff has allowed just five goals in his past five starts and is a big reason Calgary ended its three-game road trip with a victory. He sprawled his left arm out to take the tying goal off Mikhail Grabovski's stick late in the second period and turned away Hagman from in-close in the third.

"Thank goodness he was there," Flames defenseman Robyn Regehr said of Kiprusoff. "I thought for most of the first period and all the second period, they were the better team.
"He made great saves. I can't say enough good things about him, he had a tremendous game."
By that point, Iginla had provided his goaltender with a bit more cushion. The Flames' captain scored his 11th of the season after roaring down the right wing and beating Toskala high at 2:30 of the third period, giving Calgary a 4-2 lead.

Calgary eventually turned it on during the third period and got a goal from Bouwmeester.
Notes: Defenseman Carl Gunnarson played his first career NHL game for Toronto ... Leafs forward Phil Kessel and Flames forward David Moss are cousins ... Calgary has opened the scoring in 15 of its 18 games ... The Leafs warmed up in retro jerseys.

Just a quick update.

Calgary 5 Nashville 0

Flames win again. This time they demolish the red hot Nashville Predators. The Preds were 8-2 in their last 10 games, until they ran into the Mikka "The Big Red Machine" Kiprusoff. Kipper has back to back shoutouts. I don't think it's premature to take of another Vezina trophy to add to his collection.

The Flames are simply awesome.

Red-hot Flames burn Sharks 2-1
Sunday, 12.06.2009
John Kreiser - NHL.com







The Flames improved to 11-2-3 away from the Pengrowth Saddledome with a 2-1 victory over the San Jose Sharks on Saturday night. Daymond Langkow broke a tie with a goal 3:36 into the third period, and former Shark Miikka Kiprusoff made 35 saves.

Kiprusoff's best stop came during a Sharks power play late in the second period with the score tied at 1-1. Scott Nichol looked like he had the go-ahead goal when the rebound of his shot bounced over a sprawled Kiprusoff's skate, but the Finnish netminder knocked the puck away with the heel of his skate.

"I saw it hit my glove and I knew it was right there," Kiprusoff said. "It can go anywhere when you kick it like that, and this time it went into the corner."

Kiprusoff has been playing some of the best hockey of his career.

"He's played like that all year. He's really enjoying it, he's on his game. He's fun to watch, he's always competing in there. He loves it," captain Jarome Iginla told CBC's Hockey Night in Canada of Kiprusoff, who has beaten his old team in 11 of 19 meetings. "The defense and him are playing so well, playing so well together."

The Flames are now 4-1-0 on a six-game trip that concludes Monday in Los Angeles. Their play on the road this season is quite an improvement for a team that went 19-20-2 away from home in 2008-09.

"I think part of is confidence and part of it is rolling," Iginla said. "From the start of game, we're showing more composure."

Not surprisingly for a meeting between two of the Western Conference's top teams, there was plenty of hitting (36 hits apiece), some good scoring chances (35 shots each) and excellent goaltending.

"That was a hell of a game, almost a playoff game," Sharks coach Todd McLellan said. "Unfortunately we made one mistake in the third period, and they scored."

The mistake came when Langkow was left alone in the slot while Rene Bourque won the puck behind the San Jose net. Bourque found him, and Langkow ripped a one-timer from 20 feet past Evgeni Nabokov's glove to break a 1-1 tie.

The Sharks' best chance to tie came about 80 seconds later when Nichol fired a shot that beat Kiprusoff but clanged off the crossbar.

"This was a game that both teams needed goaltending, and got it," Flames coach Brent Sutter said. "They both made big saves. The one by Kipper was unbelievable. The puck is heading into the net and he throws a foot up to knock it out."

It was the second home loss in three nights for the Sharks, who blew a late lead to St. Louis on Thursday and lost in a shootout.

"It was a back-and-forth game, a playoff kind of game," Nichol said. "It was like two big bulls going at it. You had to battle for every inch of ice."

After a scoreless first period, San Jose went ahead 4:40 into the second when Ryan Clowe swatted home the rebound of Dan Boyle's shot an instant before Kiprusoff could cover the puck. Clowe, who got off to a slow start this season, now has 5 goals and 10 points in his last nine games and 19 points in his last 19 games.

The lead lasted only until 10:28, when Olli Jokinen beat Evgeni Nabokov with a sizzler from inside the left circle. Jokinen's shot appeared to tick off Nichol's stick and zipped over the goaltender's glove.

"We had chances," Sharks center Joe Pavelski said. "Both goalies were very good. We just didn't get the one we needed."

I don't know what to say. Despite a very talented lineup, the Flames have been awful the past month. Hopefully they can turn it around.
