As Flames this season...

White - 16 Games, 2 Goals, 4 Assists, 6 Points, -10, 6 PIM, 21:44 TOI
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
Other than his 1st game with the Flames (nerves) I have been impressed with Babs. I mentioned it before, his first pass out of the zone is almost automatic. It's always almost on the tape. I think he should go to the 1st PP unit. I like him better than White actually, i thought Ian took the bulking up too far and lost some speed.
