I lived in Calgary for 2 years, I've watched him MORE than enough - perhaps it is him playing on BAD team(s) for years.... most people, like myself think he isn't as good as he looks - and that contract is gross.... BUT, he CAN skate and pass the puck.... never been in the playoffs (not that means anything), and plays a ton of minutes.....

I've always said he sucks b/c he hasn't ever shown great things while watching him play. He is better than Carle on the D side - but not by much... so take it for what it's worth.

At this point, while I know D is the focus.... I say we go with what we got and take a run @ Weber in the NEXT offseason....

Edit: my Flames friends would trade him for a bag of pucks.... haha...
