The Calgary Flames announced today that they have recalled right winger Akim Aliu from the Abbotsford Heat of the American Hockey League and reassigned forwards Blair Jones and Roman Horak to Abbotsford.

If Bärtschi is returning then I hope he'll be on the top 9 taking Horak's spot with the Cervenka and Hudler and not having to play on the 4th line again.

CoRD 02-21-2013 05:16 PM

Horak on the line with Hudler and Cervenka was a disaster. Huds and Cervenka were so hot it looked like you could put me on that line and we'd produce. This is not the case. Horak made that line look mediocre at best.

StreakingRed 02-21-2013 05:45 PM

Akim the African Dream has been called up.

BVicious 02-21-2013 05:53 PM

Lmao. I always laugh when I suggest or state my opinion and people quickly shoot it down like they are a GM of some sort.


And then what suggest....happens. Lol

tmurfin 02-21-2013 06:05 PM

Hopefully Svens back and can hop into the top 6 and Akim can bring us a physical presence we really need

Adirondack Flames 02-21-2013 06:06 PM

Aliu has most definitely not earned this call up, this is a desperate move to add some toughness and energy to the lineup. I think Begin will sit on Saturday in favor of Aliu on Saturday, possibly with Cervenka moving to center.

Cammalleri - Tanguay - Iginla
Glencross - Cervenka - Hudler
Baertschi - Stajan - Stempniak
Jackman - Comeau - Aliu

TheHudlinator 02-21-2013 06:21 PM

Perfect we need more energy and Aliu could really help with that.

Calculon 02-21-2013 06:22 PM

Aliu hasn't looked all that great with the Heat, but then again, a lot of people were saying Brodie was a disappointment down there too when he was sent down at the beginning of 2011. Some players just look better in the NHL then they do in the AHL.

FLAMES666 02-21-2013 06:23 PM

I'm really excited to see Aliu. Not much else to be excited about this team.

I wouldn't be surprised if Aliu took Jackman's spot. He was terrible lastnight.

DBU 02-21-2013 06:25 PM

Shrug. Couldn't make us worse I guess lol.

Flames92 02-21-2013 06:25 PM

Two assignments and one recall? I guess Baertschi might be good to go. I hope thats the case and that they are not desperately shoving him in when he's not 100%.. Either that or we are going to have a grinder like Comeau in the top 9

Nordberg 02-21-2013 06:35 PM

Should make our next game more entertaining which is the important thing at this point. I like it.

Johnny Hoxville 02-21-2013 06:47 PM

Hopefully Aliu brings his A game and does what this team needs him to. Its to bad Ferland didn't have a better pro start and earn this callup.

Ferland is doing great btw, he has 21pts in his last 13 games.

As an overager, I think he will be a solid 3rd line winger one day.

Nordberg 02-21-2013 07:02 PM

I love Ferland. I really hope he pans out. Seems like a real heart and soul type of player you want on your team.

InfinityIggy 02-21-2013 07:06 PM

So....we must be recalling someone else then? I'm fine with the move, can't wait to see Aliu actually. He's going to have a chip on his shoulder and I expect him to lay a few people out in his time here.

Baertschi is very close to returning

BVicious 02-21-2013 07:08 PM

They should play him with Cammy again. Worked last time. lol

:laugh: No Comeau is back to center

HighLifeMan 02-21-2013 07:13 PM

Well this is obviously not a move based on performance at the AHL level, but more so an attempt to fill a glaring need on this sad sack roster. I have expressed my displeasure's with Aliu's game in the past so I don't need to keep pounding on the guy, but I just cant see how he is the solution.

Either way, I hope he brings what the team is looking for and can become a consistent role player for us moving forward.

They aren't bringing him in to score, he's going to be here purely to punish people.

I understand that, but he doesn't play that role consistently (even at the AHL level).
