Joe Colborne wants to avoid his arbitration hearing on August 1 if possible.

The hearing would be moot if the Flames and Colborne agree to terms before it starts. The arbitration process can be tough on a player as he has to sit there and listen to all the reasons the team feels like he's not worth as much as he claims. "I've seen a few guys go through the whole situation," Colborne said. "I've heard when you go in there and your agents are talking, you feel like the biggest human alive. You feel like you're a superhero. And then the team comes in and you don't feel quite so big after all, and you come out of like you've been through the ringer."

Joe Colborne will play against his former Toronto Maple Leafs at a time when the team has hit a low point.

Toronto has lost eight games in a row in regulation time and the Calgary Flames will attempt to make it nine. On Colborne's end, he admitted that Tuesday's contest will be emotional for him. "Obviously, it’s where I played my first game, my first playoff game — that was one of the coolest moments of my life," Colborne said. "It's going to be a fun game. We're going to be battling hard. We know how much these two points mean to them." Realistically, Toronto has already been eliminated from the playoffs, but if they win all six of their remaining games, there's at least a chance that they will end up with a Wild Card spot. If Calgary beats Toronto Tuesday night, that faint hope will be gone.

Joe Colborne had his jersey retired by the Camrose Kodiaks.

Colborne never played in the Canadian Hockey League. Instead, he got his start with Camrose in the Alberta Junior Hockey League and became just the second player in NHL history after Brent Sutter to be taken in the first round straight out of the AJHL. Colborne went to Camrose over the Olympic break to be there for the event. "It's just such an honour," said Colborne. "It still is a shock. When Boris (Rybalka) called me in the summer and kind of mentioned that they had been thinking about it for a while and wanted to use the Olympic break, it kind of blew my mind."

Joe Colborne vented his frustration over the Calgary Flames anemic offense.

Calgary has been shut out of four of its last six games. "No matter what anyone says, it's frustrating when we're not scoring," Colborne said. "When you score one goal in four games, that's something you take to heart. You keep trying to look at the positives, but this is a results-based business. When you're not getting the results, it's frustrating. We're all competitors. It sucks to lose. It wears on you. We have to start stringing something together." Calgary is near the bottom of the pack with a 15-22-6 record. We wouldn't count on them bouncing back in the second half of 2013-14.
