03:27 PM ET 06.24 | The Calgary area has dealt with massive flooding and the Scotiabank Saddledome wasn't exempt from the damage done by the rising waters. The flooding submerged the lower 10 rows of the arena and the zambonis, video control room, dressing rooms, kitchens, media lounge and most of the team's memorabilia were all destroyed, casting doubt upon whether the Flames will be able to play there next season, but team president Ken King is confident that will not be a problem. "We're going to be ready for the opening of the season," King said at a press conference.
