Nolan had a whole 2 empty net goals last season... shows how great your memory really is.. and yes Yelle spent some time on the 3rd line... when Nystrom & Moss were hurt... towards the end of the season Yelle was playing with Boyd and Godard

Anybody who says the "skilled players" Sutter was talking about weren't Tanguay and Huselius are kidding themselves or flat out lying. Of course it's them, who else would it be? The golden boy Iggy? Langkow who we resigned? 38 year old 3rd line centre Conroy? Godard, Smith, Yelle, Nilson and Primeau? Of course it's those two. They were his whipping boys and now they're gone. I hope we don't run Kipper out the same way because 12 months ago no one wanted Huselius or Tanguay out of town. it's amazing how a little not-so-subtle coach/GM thinly-veiled rhetoric regarding a few players can change public opinion overnight.

The only other conceivable person he could have talked about was Lombardi, but I fully expect Lombardi to be dealt only to see him flourish elsewhere. He's proved for years he deserve a 2nd line job but the Flames' brass don't like young players not named Dion. Lombardi saw a little action with Nolan but did spend most of the year with Primeau, Yelle, Nystrom and Moss. How many goals did those 4 combine for? 13. Lombardi played 2-3 less games than Conroy and outscored him - with virtually no pp time. What else is the guy suppose to do to earn the job?

We misused Tanguay, we misused Kobasew and we've been misusing Lombardi for years.
