08:20 AM ET 03.01 | It wasn't just an earlier start time that gave Calgary's Wednesday morning practice a different feel. Head coach Brent Sutter repeatedly implored his players to increase their tempo and practice at game intensity, and there was no joking around on the ice. "We need to practice the way we want to play, and a big part of that is emotion. I want us to have that. I want us to play with that," Sutter explained. "It's all about having an aggressive mindset, and that gets back to what we've been talking about: going after it and grab it." ... [The] time has come to put together strings of wins, and Sutter had no problems reminding his charges what is missing from their game.

Bench both Iginla and Blowmeister. Both were liabilities last game- if your serious Buhrent make serious moves, its now or never

Just send Jerome to Pittsburgh, no need to "bench him."

Who picks up the slack if Sutter were to do that?

at the very least Tanguay may feel he can take a shot himself rather then trying to force it into an Iginla that is no where near open.

They could steer away from the iceberg by taking a Costa cruise near the Italian coast, or off the coast of Africa? Er...........no, wait a minute, I need to think that one through a little more.

So then should Iginla Return To Centre?

Ken King and Co should be very wary of the apathy starting to form in Calgary right now. On 960 am sports talk radio this am the biggest ( and funniest discussion) amongst the chat mongers was not the Flames. It was about what would be a worse job, a waste collection person in Regina in winter or the animal slaughter person in a meat packing plant. Very funny points made , but nothing funny about no Flames chat on March 1st.

"Sutter demands more from sinking Flames"

Demanding more from this thin on talent Flames team is like trying to squeeze water out of a stone. There just ain't nothing there! Duhryl made sure of that.
