Charlotte is the Flames minor league affiliate, so aside from a couple guys it's very similar to Grand Rapids in terms of not much quality depth. Players to watch for Charlotte.....

RW/LW Sven Baertschi - He's their top prospect and if you believe the hype a can't-miss stud. He'd probably be in the NHL right now if not for the lockout. He's their systems Nyqvist, but probably better.

RW Greg Nemisz - Another high-end talented winger in the Flames system. His ceiling is similar to that of a Frk or Jurco.

C Max Reinhart - Their top center prospect. Another high-ceiling guy similar to Jarnkrok (not in play style just in terms of upside).

D T.J. Brodie - Flames top defensive prospect. A step below Smith in terms of upside, more in the Sproul/Ouellet category.

Plenty of guys on the Flames side to watch. Should be an interesting game without some of the ridiculous stacked teams for either side. More like a true AHL game from any normal season.
