I wouldn't have thought that he had any chance of making our team this year, but ended up being one of the last cuts...

as for Lombardi - great game last night - his first hattrick!! seems like you guys got some secondary scoring last night - finally... although Iginla still seems to be in a funk... but with Lombardi, it's still early... just like it is for King - who had a 5 game goal scoring streak recently, and I believe he's either tied or near the lead for rookie scoring overall right now.
LOL I knew you would bring up King! I agree its still early for both guys...its just pretty rare that I actually spend a thread talking up a Flames player(or prospect) and then he actually goes out and does something
