Words are very/unnecessary/they can only do harm


Players wear Mike Vernon's name and number during warmup


The man of the hour steps up to the podium

A touching moment as Vernon recalls the help of his late mother in his career


#30's banner rises behind him and his family

Mike Vernon waves goodbye to the fans. Thanks for the memories Verny.




My only complaint about the whole night (besides the performance put on by both teams), is that the banner is in the team's current colours and design rather than the team Vernon actually played on. Its tacky and weird.

I didn't think it was as bad as the Sharks game earlier in the season, but it was pretty bad at times. 5 shots in one period? It was like we refused to shoot the puck.

I kept yelling 'watch their good player' whenever Havlat was on the ice, it was the one guy we needed to keep an eye on.

I will say this though, the last 5 minutes + OT was exciting, it just didn't go our way.

SO was a foregone conclusion.

I just don't understand why they did it that way. If you want to see how banners should look, (Calgary Flames fans cover your eyes) head down to Rexall.

No doubt. That was comically bad.

Nice Depeche Mode reference. No one else picked up on it?

Thank you! The real irony is that I had captions anyway...
