Postma hopes to push for spot
 
Bumped into Paul Postma here in Calgary yesterday and got to chatting with him about the organizational move and whatnot and he gave me a few good quotes to put a little piece together. Thought you might find this interesting in the dog days of summer:

Quote:

I want to be there so bad and Im going to do everything I can to be there, he said.

Hes been there before, if only for a moment.

Postma got a sniff of the NHL last season, playing in a March 9th contest against the Carolina Hurricanes. Though he played just 9:55, the experience was more than enough to motivate the former Calgary Hitmen standout.

It was amazing, said Postma, who had 33 assists and 45 points in 69 games with the Wolves last season. Its totally different hockey. Players are a lot smarter. The game is just so much different. Sure it is faster and guys are stronger but I love the pace and the tempo and I thought I played really well when I was up there and I look forward to playing more next year.

Still the guy I think has the best chance of all our prospects to make the team. Naturally a trade needs to happen or a move of Byfuglien to forward (highly unlikely), but Postma is ready.

Thanks Aaron.

By all accounts it looks like Postma will be the first AHL call up this year. I think with injuries, and depending on where we are towards the end of the season (in the race or out), I think he will see plenty of action this year in the NHL.

I really like Postma, he impressed me against the Moose last season. I think he may have had a two goal game (?) but not totally certiain. For sure had a multi-point game. I would like to see us make a move for a center that would allow him to make our team.

Couldnt agree more.

Heaven forbid, but if the Bogosian situation goes totally off the tracks (not saying it might, but sometimes things just happen), do we see Postma in the lineup this year?

Haha I just saw Postma in Calgary. He doesn't like the new logos...
