    'I'm not Theoren Fleury'

    By GEORGE JOHNSON -- Calgary Sun
      Rene Corbet arrived in town at around 8:30 last night, outfitted in a baseball cap with the logo of a horse on it.
     "Hey, you're going to have to change that," he was teased.
     Goodbye, Broncos. Hello, Stamps.
     Corbet, unaccustomed to the intense media spotlight, looked a bit haggard after his United flight from Denver touched down. Right away, he was bombarded with questions about the man he was traded for.
     "I'm not going to try and be Theo Fleury," countered Corbet, the only tangible asset the Flames have to show at present for their big deal yesterday. "I just want to be Rene Corbet, the Rene Corbet who played the last four years in Colorado."
     Nope. Sorry. Gonna have to do more than that.
     Corbet's minutes will swell, his responsibilities will be multiplied. By okaying the trade for him, Brian Sutter will see to that.
     "I'll bring energy to the rink every night," Corbet promised. "This is the first time I've been traded, so it was a bit of a shock this morning.
     "What do I know about the Flames?" Corbet smiled. "Well, that they beat us all the time in Colorado, for one thing.
     "I look at this as another challenge. This is a young team fighting for a playoff spot. They're only a few points behind.
     "For my career, this is good for me."
     He's also going to have to prove this isn't disasterously bad for the Flames.
     And accomplishing that will be no small feat.
