KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia - The Badminton World Federation has reversed a one-year ban handed to Olympic gold medallist Lee Yon-dae for failing to comply with doping requirements.

Lee and fellow South Korean player Kim Ki-jung are eligible to resume competition immediately after the Malaysia-based BWF found that the "whereabouts failures" were due to the management of the program by the national badminton federation.

Neither player failed a doping test, but had been required to provide whereabouts information for the BWF to conduct out-of-competition testing.

CALGARY - The Calgary Flames did not make the playoffs for a fifth straight year. The difference between this spring and the previous four is the Flames did not underachieve this time around.

When since-deposed general manager Jay Feaster brought himself to say the word "rebuild" last summer, it confirmed following the departure of Jarome Iginla, Miikka Kiprusoff and Jay Bouwmeester that the Flames were going to be a lunchbucket squad until new stars emerged or were acquired.
