Obviously for the best. If the Flames fail to make the playoffs, at least Sven didn't have to experience the disappointing defeat of only playing till April. Hopefully Bartschi can win a Memorial Cup this year.

Sadly, this.

I would have loved to keep him up for the rest of his 9 games. He'll get a legitimate shot next year though for the Flames, and I think he might have a spot in the top 9 already.

I think its safe to say his spot in the top 9 next year is pretty much secure.

I hope so. He's shown that he provides a great 2-way game, great offensive awareness, a phenomenal shot, decent passing and a spark that helps the team. He's been the most exciting Flame we've had in a long time.

If everyone forgets if he played 10 or more games we lose a year on his contract its better he is sent back down so he can get 3 full year instead of 2 year and 16 games

It was fun while it lasted. Hope they get a coach who will give him a real shot next year and let him use that skill set. We need some youth and excitement put back in this team.

I don't think anyone forgets that, it's just an acknowledgement that he will be missed.

I gotta admit, I had almost no expectations of him. We've had years and years of dud rookies so I just kinda wrote him off as an up and comer dud that everyone was getting pumped up for nothing. I'm really excited to see him make the big club as a regular.

Give him a real shot...? What exactly do you mean by that?

Ditto. Sad he can't stay up, but happy he'll be up for sure next season

i can not say anything completely positive about the flames to i will through a backhanded compliment their way because there is nothing bad i can really say, so i guess i will make things up like normal because afterall thats what trolls like me do
