My Christmas Wish List for the Flames
 
In no particular order:

-A new home for Todd Bertuzzi
-A second pair d man
-A third pair d man
-Daymond Langkow to return to his 70 point form
-Cammaleri signed long term
-A great World Juniors for all our prospects (Backlund, Aulie, Wahl...)
-Irving to start playing like Steve Mason, showing there is a reason why he made the 2007 World Junior team and Mason did not
-Mathew Lombardi to finally turn into that 55-75 point player

Does anyone else have other lists...

I don't think Big Bert should be going anywhere. Who else are you going to pay under two million dollars for the performance he's been giving.

serratedmuffin 12-23-2008 04:11 PM

my list

-Phaneuf has his defensive ability turned into lidstrom like
-Cammalleri signed long term
-Boyd stepping up to second line minutes/role/points
-top 4 puck moving d-man to play with phaneuf (a younger hamrlik-like player)
-NW division title
-More playing time for McE so kipper isn't a sloppy bag of meat by playoffs

Hyde 12-23-2008 04:14 PM

I just want Vandermeer back, just so Gio and Dion are split up.

6 years is probably longer than anyone else will offer (hence the 4.5). But I mean...how appealing would it be to be offered to play the next 6 years with Iginla?

JorgeRocks! 12-23-2008 04:51 PM

and the 4.5 million is probably bit underpayed seeing some of the salaries dished out last summer on UFA's, (Brian Rolston, 31 goals, 59 points, 35 years old=4 years 20 million dollars) seeing how he is on pace for 27 goals and 64 points and is still only 26, and has cracked the 80 point plateau before, but where is he going to be able sign and get a linemate as good as good igilna?

Lets hope he is here for the long term, if not, i would rather have that 17th overall pick in the 2008 draft back

Northern Neighbour 12-23-2008 05:10 PM

Another thing to add to the wishlist:
- Kiprusoff returns to his Vezina Trophy form.

Good god, please stop posting it makes my eyes bleed

Bertuzzi makes less than 2 million and is arguably our best playmaker... everyone was well aware of his defensive gaffes and turnovers when signing him

2nd pair Dman?... we have 4 of them already... but unlike some other teams we have only one pairing with 2 of them... Sarich and Aucoin are both 2nd pairing defensemen... its just better for this team not to have Pardy and Giordano playing together

3rd pair defenseman too? so you want to run 10 defensemen out there? Parduy is shown he is a solid 6/7 guy... and Vandermeer and Giordano are both 3rd pairing defensemen

while Langkow getting 70 would be nice... but keep in mind he is playing with Bertuzzi and Moss/Bourque/Boyd/Glencross/Lombardi right now... his 70+ point seasons were with Iginla on his wing... 70 may be asking for too much considering his is on pace for his usual 20-25 goals... its hard to rack up 50ish assists when your best linemate doesn't shoot

Cammalleri & WJC... ok you actually nailed 2

Irving will not be as good as Mason... sure he beat him out the one year... but then as they continued developing mason beat him out for the same roster spot and never looked back... where as Mr. Irving appears to be struggling in the AHL a bit... I would just be happy to see him raise his SV% to .900 down in QC

Lombardi will never be a regular 55-75 point player... good god people... 1 international tournament does not negate the 4 mediocre NHL seasons he has put up (well almost 4.5 now)... wouldn't holding out hope for another 40-50 point season make much more sense? you know since he has only accomplished it once and hasn't even had a sniff off 55-75 points

Lombardi has been much better since having been given the opportunity to play with Iggy/Cammy. 40-50 is very achievable.

he's been much better yeah... but it was hard to be worse than prior to his injury... he has 8 points in 13 games since returning... for him that is an astronomical pace... i'll give him that... but even if he maintains that pace (which is unlikely) he will only have 40 points at the end year

JorgeRocks! 12-23-2008 08:17 PM

we need defensive depth in my mind. look at detroit 4-7th d men last year:

Brad Stuart, Andreas lilja, chris chelios, brett lebda

We have:
Aucoin, Giordano,Vandermeer, Pardy

I am quite happy with our top 3 D Men, but if we are going to be cup contenders, we are going to have to add those depth d men we need for a serious run. what if another d men gets hurt, do we really want to have pardy and matt pelech as a 3rd pair?

Bertuzzi can bring it offensively, but does not do much else, and well i have never been a bertuzzi fan at all.

and i think lombardi can be that 50+ point guy. Check out him and antoine vermette's stats from when they played junior togethor. pretty close togethor, and vermette had 53 points last year. i think it is possible, but quite a stretch

JorgeRocks! 12-23-2008 08:25 PM

Got a couple more to:

-Jamie Lundmark with the big club full time
-david moss signed long term
-for quad cities and las vegas to start playing 0.500 hockey
-for kris chucko to translate his ahl success this year to nhl success soon. (and also to somehow show there was a way he got drafted 5 spots ahead of calgary native Mike Green in the 2004 NHL draft. Yes that same Mike Green who was 7th in Norris trophy voting last year)

flamesfan12 12-23-2008 11:18 PM

-Boyd more playing time. He deserves it and needs to start playing in an offensive role.
-Cammalleri extension. Love what he brings to the team.
-Healthy lineup. Would love to have Prust, Glencross, Vandermeer back.
-McElhinney more playing time.
-Dion to start scoring. His overall play has been better, but I would like to see him get the goal total up. It'll come.

Bingo. I agree.

Philadelphia Flames 12-24-2008 11:22 AM

a #1 center please to play along Iginla. Langkow, Lombardi, and Conroy are all 2nd or 3rd liners. Look at Philadelphia down the middle, Richards, Carter, Briere, all 1st liners, even Carter would be a first liner if he was on some other team. I doubt it's going to happen since we're paying langkow 5 million to score about 54 points this season. Just someone Iginla can play along so he can hit 100 points.

cross16 12-25-2008 12:19 PM

- A number one center
- a puck moving dman (not necessarily good but even just a depth guy)
- more ice time for boyd
- Less for Lombardi
- More hitting from Phaneuf
- Everyone to get healthy.

Split98 12-25-2008 12:53 PM

Cammalleri long term... and Lombardi finally stepping into his own would be on the top of my list.
