78 RPM

Not a news flash at this point, but Craig Conroy has signed with the L.A. Kings, and will make much more than the Flames were willing or able to offer. His terrific playoff performance priced him out of Calgary.

I can't say enough good things about Craig Conroy - he's what you want from a professional athlete in your town. Friendly to the fans, works his ass off, makes a difference. The man is also a great interview, despite (or more likely because of) the fact that he sounds like he's way, way, hepped up on goofballs. And unlike many American players traded to Canadian teams, he never gave the impression that he was unhappy to be here.

Best of luck to you, Mr. Conroy. You will be missed.
