Tell me about it... I was looking forward to getting a couple of hours more sleep than usual, but now it's ruined. Oh well, what can you do.

backlund's making his debut tonight?! so glad i grabbed a couple tickets for the game..

any ideas as to which line he'll be placed on? i know its most likely gonna be the fourth, but it'd be interesting to see him get some time on the second.. maybe a couple shifts with iggy/cammy?.. seeing as how were playing the isles, it might make a bit of sense just to see if he sparks with those two.. you never know..

I am excited now to watch this game. It was a little lackluster before but now it'll be an exciting one. I enjoyed watching Backlund at the WJC's and now I get to watch him again this time with the big boys.

Go Flames Go. Lets distance ourselves from the Casux.

This makes me wonder now. If he does okay but better than expected would they send him to the AHL? Because since hes suiting up for the nhl that starts his nhl contract correct?

he has to play 12+ games or something like that in the NHL before his rookie contract kicks in

I'm hoping the isles come out with a strong effort and we get a good game.

Flames 5,Isles 3.

I think this is going to be a closer game then some think. The Flames will come out slow, but smarten up in the 3rd.

Almost 2 full pages in the GDT before the game has even started. And it's against the Islanders to boot.

Backlund's debut is certainly generating a lot of flurry. Should be a interesting game thanks to him.
