As Flames this season...

Anton - 15 Games, 1 Goal, 4 Assists, 5 Points, +2, 6 PIM, 17:05 TOI

considering the Flames actually won a bunch of games with White in the lineup in October that +/- difference of 12 is ridiculous... while Anton doesn't eat up the same amount of ice-time he has been much more reliable than White... also Kostopoulos > Sutter... so this deal is really looking like alot of win for the Flames
Fair enough, and Babchuks number are respectable, however the first few games he played here he was invisible out there. But there is no question he has picked up his play over the last few games. Obviously there is going to be an adjustment period coming to a new team, but it looks as though he is settling in well. Hopefully the coaching staff can get him to be consistent with this play from here on in.
