Shall we critique our Calgary Flames performance so far?

We have depth. Guys like Backlund, Stempniak, and Stajan are showing they can be productive given the chance.
Glencross is really looking like he's a legitimate top line winger. Considering his contract, I couldn't be happier.
Kipper has been pretty underwhelming. It's early, but if he can't improve, this season will be over quickly.
Iginla. I haven't been impressed. He did well against the Oilers, but I expect more from him. I'm sure he'll pull together soon.
Cammalleri. Very disappointed with him so far. I wouldn't be opposed to trading him if it meant bringing in a strong stay at home defenseman, or a center with top 6/faceoff abilities.
Bouwmeester. Will we see the early Bouwmeester from here on out, or the unknown player who wore his jersey against the Oilers?
Gelinas. Every time I see him on the bench, he looks really uncomfortable. I would have preferred an assistant with more experience, but I'm willing to give him time before I decide. As of right now, I don't think he was a good choice.
Baertschi. I think he can fit in a top 6, just not here. We have too much depth, and I think he's the odd man out. If he wants to stay with the Flames this season, he needs to pick things up. He was great against San Jose, but I haven't noticed much else from him. Sending him back down to the AHL to develop isn't a bad idea.
