The Center puzzle

Posted Friday | Comments 0
A month from the start of training camp all of the articles on who fits with who on what line are starting to come up. As opposed to previous years Calgary is in a dilema with center...they have too many! Langkow seems to be the obvious fit with Iginla and Tanguay, that line at times last year gave flames fans something they hadn't seen in years, tick-tac-toe passing plays...
It's fun when the team you cheer for has great propects and great prospect camps because you get to hope that they will crack the line up, this was the case recently in Calgary where some of the young talent made the fans think, "what if?". "Flamstr" wrote a few great blogs on prospect camp and even interviewed the families of a couple (if you haven't read these it's wort...

The sky is falling

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
One player during the pre-saeson stood out as a guy who came into camp that was game to play. He wanted a spot on the roster and he got one... just maybe in a little while. Dustin Boyd, leading pre-season scorer, was assigned to Quad city today...why?? Well the Answer is because Rhett Warrener is on injured reserve and until he can be declared a long term injury where h...
I am a little upset at the selfishness of the Calgary Flames organization, I just want to write some blogs and voice my opinion on how I would change things. I think it is ludicrous they won't give me one thing to write about. Is it so much to ask to just have the power play fail at least so I can continue my call for new special teams coaching? But nooooo, they have t...
Dustin Boyd practiced with the number one line, and while Keenan isn't known for sticking to one line all game, it does show that the Flames' drafting has improved since Sutter took over. A quick look at the roster for this current year will show that the drafting done since Sutter took over is helping the team. Nystrom first round 10th overall, Prust third round 70th o...

It Ryhmes with Bombardi.

Say what you will regarding the Calary Flames team defense, the seconday scoring, which is critical this season is heating up. Yes that pun is completley intentional and I do will not apologize for it! Here's a quick look at the pace of the secondary guys: Boyd: 30 goals 10 assists Moss: 10 goals 19 assists Bourque: 14 goals 29 assists Conroy: 14 goals 24 assists G...

Sneaky Sutter

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
With the recent pick ups of Fredrik Sjostrom, Brian McGrattan and now it looks like Nigel Dawes, Darryl Sutter is following his usual routine of sneaky pick ups during the summer season. Looking at the three less than flashy pickups, as opposed to J-Bo, each one can offer a great upgrade at their position. Knowing Sutter’s history over the past five plus seasons h...
Flames fans are excited again. The excitement flows from the off season moves by the Flames management team and it's acquisition of recognizable names, even if most of the names are just bound for Abbotsford. Some of the questions that we will likely get the answer to soon are: Q: Is Cammalleri's scoring replaceable on the power play? A: The hope would be the power pl...
The Flames couldn’t have been expected to make blockbusters necessarily, having already made the two biggest trades of the year a month earlier. However, it was fair to at least expect some additional tinkering by Darryl Sutter. He had a large surplus of forwards (albeit, mostly mediocre ones). The team itself was facing a very tight playoff race, with a sense of urgency...

Preds Deadline Review

Posted Friday | Comments 0
First blog in a long while. Lets get to it. Well the trade deadline has come and gone and its time to look back at what changed with the Preds roster. [b]EDM trades: D Denis Grebeshkov NSH trades: 2010 2nd round pick Thoughts: [/b]I had a mixed reaction. When I got a text from a colleague and friend from a news source informing of this trade, I said to myself ...
On Tuesday, June 29th, 2010 the Habs traded disgruntled forward Sergei Kostitsyn and "future considerations" to the Nashville Predators for forward Dustin Boyd, Goaltender Dan Ellis and "future considerations". What an awesome trade folks! Gauthier and the Habs brass impress me yet again this off-season. Dustin Boyd: If he decides to sign, Boyd will be a great 3rd...

Poile pulls the trigger...

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
I will have to admit, in the past I have been very critical of David Poile and the Predators have not taking a high-end risk. (Yes, the Forsberg trade was a high-end risk.) I think a move like the acquisition of Sergei Kostitsyn from Montreal for a goaltender you had no interest in keeping as a UFA and a 4th, or at most a 3rd line center, who is a RFA and future considerat...
Here we are ... about 40 days away from the drop of the puck. Is anyone as antsy as I am for the season to start? It's not that I don't like summer, but watching baseball just doesn't do it for me. But at least there's some Canadian Football to tide me over. Speaking of which, Ottawa is supposed to get a team for next season. But I digress ... Since the Habs ros...
