I watched Cammalleri play a lot within the last few years. This guy seriously has one of the best one-timers I've ever seen.

Hehehe...if teams try to stop it they'll give Gomez more room for set ups. Our PP looks so awesome on paper.

Nobody's made much of how he seems to be on Tanguay's tail and replacing him wherever he goes -- he's even taking his number this year, no? Kinda funny. Calgary dealt Tanguay and said publicly that they had what they thought was a better replacement, as far as I recall.

Cammalleri quickly became a fan favourite here in Calgary. His one-timer is deadly; you gotta love when he gets down on one knee when firing his one timers. Very classy guy, and it's unfortunate the Flames couldn't retain him.

For whatever reason, however, Cammy's offense dried up towards the end of the season, and wasn't overly effective in the playoffs. Whether or not it had to do with bringing Jokinen in, or not, will be determined.

He did very well with Iginla who isn't known for his set-up abilities, so I wonder how he'll do with more capable play makers around him.

the other thing is especially watching the first half of the video is how quick of a release he has. A lot of breaking down the wing and get a deceptively hard accurate shot away for goals.

Cammy by far my favorite hab signing in 15 years.

when cammy was in LA, he manned the point on the power play. he has excellent goal scoring skills. he's not a softie and he knows where to go on the ice to get a good scoring chance. he's not very big but can hold his own in the corners with mediocre defenders. his one timers are good ... but he's not a jari kurri.

Cammalleri had 80pts in LA, how do you explain that?

He's a goal scorer who's fantastic on the powerplay. I'd also argue that Gomez is a much better playmaker than Iginla.
The extremely underrated Alexander Frolov.

Its odd seeing Frolov's point totals decreasing for 2 years in a row now.

Cammalleri healthy = Frolov's best year
Cammalleri hurt = Frolov production decline (more case of leveled because of his own games missed)
Cammalleri traded = Frolov's production further declines

Frolov's production actually increased in 07-08 on a point per game basis. It's not a case of levelling off. He played better. Period.

Last year, the whole team struggled offensively, including Kopitar. That's because Terry Murray came and imposed a strict defensive system to get the youngsters to learn defense.

Whether you like Cammy or not, he has nothing to do with the decrease in Frolov's production. Frolov is a very good playmaker and he can rack up good points totals playing with many players. Obviously, having Cammalleri capitalizing on chances instead of a lesser player might help, but it doesn't really diminish Frolov's skill in any way.

I think he's just trying to disprove or argue other points that may be selling Cammalleri short, like many seem to be doing.

I'm not scared of Camalleri not doing well here. Looking at that video a lot of his goals come from him using his good shot or going to the tough scoring areas around the net for rebounds than the result of fantastic plays that he just finishes off.

I'm not saying he can score 40 goals but I certainly don't see him doing poorly like most of our scorers last year(or Ryder the year before)

Hey look, I like Kovy and have a red home jersey with his name on it. I don't plan on not wearing it, though I do own a Jacques Plante and Patrick Roy classic jersey and have Ryder on the white and blue vintage one, so I'm used to wearing former Hab jerseys. But Cammy is a fine replacement. He may not have that playoff demon ability or that wicked wrister but he's more consistent. He has two 80+ pt. seasons, two 30 goal season (three 20 goal seasons) and his last AHL year was fantastic too (46 goals, 106 pts.). He can produce at centre but has the one-timer to be a dynamic winger too. He doesn't shy away from physical play, as does Gionta (Gomez can be worn down once in a while). I think our new "smurfs" have more Koivu than Plekanec in them.

When Kovy got to Montreal, he was in his 12th season in the league but still only had three years of over 30 goals and one season over 80. When he tallied 44-51-95 in 2000-01 he was playing with Jagr, Straka, Lang and Lemieux, which beats out Jarome Iginla and the Flames of 08-09 any day. Kovy had shown flashes of brilliance, but I think Cammy's been consistently good. He's only 27 but by 27, Kovy had yet to put together any season like what Cammy did. I think sticking a healthy Cammalleri with Gomez, Gionta, Markov, Spacek, Plekanec, the Kostitsyns, etc. will bring out a lot of his offensive potential. Anything less than 30 goals, 60 pts. in a full-ish season will be a disappointment IMO.
