The Coyotes are a great "team" playing together. Their success is team based, unlike the Flames who focus on individual game and success. You have to give the Coyotes credit, they play a great team game and make some average players look great. Look at Smith. He was waiver wire material and Bryzgalov was a wall last season. Now Smith is a wall and Bryzgalov can't stop a beach ball. Is that the goaltender or the system? I think it's the team game.

Agreed, but I definitely take Glencross over Hanzal, Iginla too. Glencross is an all-around player who would've scored 30 without the injury last year. Cammaleri and Tanguay have some big holes in their game. No one in our current line-up creates more offense than Tanguay though.

Hanzal is going to win the Selke sooner or later. Have you guys been watching the playoffs?

Purcell was arguably Tampa's best player in the playoffs last year. Just saying.

The playoffs are tougher and I like to see who can step up and raise their game when it matters. However, the flip side of that is that it is just a few games and some guys are going to get hot and some guys aren't.

If you randomly picked different 10-15 game stretches for the Flames last year for example, you might conclude - depending on which stretch you chose - that Glencross was our best player. Or Jokinen, or Iginla, or JBo, Giordano, or Cammalleri. Or it was nothing but Kipper.

Greatness is proven over time. And his career high is still 35 pts in his rookie campaign.

Again, love the guy and would gladly have him join the Flames. But do you think you would be suggesting that he might be a future Selke candidate if he were playing for a team other than the Yotes?

Agreed. Whitney probably has an edge, but it's a pretty close call.

Ok. It's probably just a lot of desert people trying to stay cool in a hockey rink
