Flames scoring depth

Hey guys,

I've recently adopted the Calgary Flames as my second favorite team, partly because my Devils are awful right now, but also because I'm a big fan of Brent Sutter and I loved his work in Jersey. The guy actually has a set system that doesn't handicap players and it allows for a quick transition game and lots of offense.

So, with that out of the way I was wondering what you guys think of the Flames' scoring depth this year. After watching two games this year (vs the Sharks and vs the Oilers) I think it's safe to say the Flames are doing just fine at forward.

Iginla
Tanguay
Morrison
Jokinen
Stajan
Bourque (love this guy)
Hagman

and on the blue line you have guys like Bouwmeester and Giordano creating offense.

I think the depth is just fine, this team plays like an actual team and that's why they're going to have a great season this year. With a ****ing awesome Defense core, a solid group of forwards and a very capable goaltender between the pipes, you better believe these Calgary Flames are for real.

What do you guys think? You content with the scoring depth?

Definitely content considering the injuries:

Langkow - Neck - Out Indefinite
Stone - Knee - Out Indefinite
Kotalik - Knee - Out Indefinite
Moss - Shoulder - Out Indefinte
Ivanans - Head - Day-to-Day

Possibly the most man games lost due to injury in the league so far and scoring goals like it's going out of style. The Flames are looking really good right now. Let's hope it continues.

definitely content... lets be honest here we have 11 forwards that should be playing in the top 9 when everyone is healthy and 9 NHL calibre defensemen

Welcome to the C of Red. ;D

When it comes to scoring depth, I don't think I've ever had any concern. By the end of the offseason (pre-injuries), we were basically running a 1b, 2, 2, 3 sort of lineup in terms of line ability. Now it's more like a 1a, 2a, 2b, 3, in that the second and third lines are interchangeable in playing strength / scoring ability. A slight downgrade during the season as opposed to the preseason, mainly because of Langkow.

But still, most of that comes from the "scoring by committee" system that Sutter's got, as I'm sure you've seen. Lots of teams say "defense needs to jump up into the rush", and it's the new buzz phrase across the league, but Calgary's d-men are actually putting it into play and getting results. 3 straight, 5 out of the last six = wins. High scoring for the most part. Strong defensive team play.

All the makings of that Sutter system everyone's wondered about. Not to saw that the team can't slump, but obviously, proof it works when it works.

Very happy with the scoring depth. Our top 9 is always a threat to score, and thats with injuries. When Tanguay and Jokinen signed, thats when I felt we had some really good depth.

Yet for some reason, people would still say that we would have trouble scoring goals.

Sutter is an awesome coach, it took him one season to get settled in with the Devils and it looks like the same thing happened with Calgary.

One thing that really impresses me is the defense, they are so physical and they make it hard on opposition forwards to enter the zone.

You know, I've always kind of liked the Devils too. Wonder if it's a Fire and Satan correlation?

Got to be honest as well. Devil's fan as well. I really hope they turn things around, as I expect big things out of their top players. I'd kill to see Zajac in a flames Uni.

Welcome over from the dark side Sure the Flames stunk it up a couple games but they can score. That is no longer the problem. Now it is to remember how to play their game plan.
