Calgary Flames halt talks with city on new arena

Flames president Ken King said Flames owners believe they can’t make a deal because negotiations have been unproductive.
King said the Flames owners remain committed to staying in Calgary for now.
A proposal to put an arena, football stadium and field house on the west side of downtown took a backseat to talks of building an arena on the east side of downtown.
The announcement comes in the run-up to a civic election next month. Mayor Naheed Nenshi is running for a third term.
