You are of course assuming that Horak will get the call. Which I understand because he is the best prospect down in Abbotsford, but if system of recalls is truly based on merit then Ben Street deserves the recall before Horak does. Street is more consistent and has been better on both sides of the puck all season long, including since Horak rejoined the team. Street is also good on faceoffs and is a top penalty killer in the AHL.

Another possibility if Feaster/Hartley look at recent play in Max Reinhart. Since the lockout ended Reinhart's game has gone to a whole new level. He has recorded 8 points in 11 games and has been one of Abbotsford's best players. It would be a good opportunity to show a kid that if you play well you will get a shot, it would also be a good way to see where Reinhart is with his development since the Flames were unable to evaluate him during training camp.

Horak recently missed a couple games with injury himself and has been pretty unnoticeable since his return.

All in all I would give Street the call over anyone.

Glencross - Tanguay - Iginla
Cervenka - Stajan - Hudler
Stempniak - Street - Comeau
Begin - Jones - Jackman
