CALGARY - When you stop to think about it, it's as surprising as a spring snowstorm in Calgary.

A mother -- in this specific case, the mother of Flames prospect and Boston College Eagles standout Johnny Gaudreau -- wants her son to finish his college education.

Whoa.

Who'd have thunk it?

The Flames fan-base has been buzzing about Wednesday's feature in the New York Times, with Jane Gaudreau making it crystal-clear she thinks the 20-year-old left-winger should return for his senior year at Boston College before going pro, but Johnny reiterated Thursday he hasn't made The Decision and cautioned not to assume mom will automatically get her way.
