Calgary Flames president Ken King addressed the massive flooding that left the team’s Scotiabank Saddledome in a press conference on Saturday, including a prediction that the team will be prepared for the 2013-14 season.
“We are going to be ready for the start of the season,” King said.
We’ll see if the Saddledome itself is good to go, though.
” … It is a total loss on the event level,” King said. “It’s very difficult to describe millions, millions of gallons of water sitting (in the Saddledome).”
Update: the team has a gallery of photos, including this disturbing image:
Vice president of building operations Libby Raines seems optimistic about the Saddeldome’s long-term viability.
“We’re fairly confident that we’re structurally intact,” Raines said. “The water is receding now.”
It sounds like the Flames still have a lot to sort out, but at least they’re positive about getting through some challenging times.
The team is also getting behind the community, as you can see from this “#wearecalgary” campaign.
