If he can win a faceoff, this might be the best signing of 2013. (So far)

Good for him. All coaches want players that play well into their system, not surprised by this at all.

Since the lost season (can't believe I can no longer say the lockout) he has a faceoff winning percentage of 50.1%.

He basically replaces Bouma as the 'Tweener.

Expect 110% effort when he's on the ice, solid PKer, good in the face off circle, and the occasional bad penalty.

If he plays anything like what I remember from him I'm perfectly okay with having him on the team. Heck if he plays half as well as he used too he's going to be a great addition to the fourth line.

Takes bad penalties but skates well for a fourth-liner and play hard every shift

Cut, but flames are weighing his options.
I like the Begin signing, gives two centers out if four that can win some major faceoffs. If backs could get back into form, all bets are off.

Think Tom Kostopoulos, except he's a centre - and apparently can win a faceoff.

Bruins fans thought he was a warrior when he was with them, but that he didn't have much by the end. After a major surgery, it'll have to be seen if he can still play at the NHL level. There's no question of effort, just effectiveness. If he still has something to give, then, it might not be a bad option for a 13th forward. Certainly better than Leblond.

And it's certainly nice to see it wasn't one of Feaster's trademarked two year deals.

Exactly, a one year deal, low risk high reward. I got no problem with this

Look at "La victoire d'un grand guerrier"

RDS excluvity

Hartley gives him the Calgary jersey and it's pretty emotional.



Hartley congratulates him and tells him how sweet that red jersey looks on him and that he's an example of perseverance.

Very nice moment.

Wow great moment. You guys in Calgary have yourself have a true warrior. And Bob Hartley is awesome. I am sure the Flames will overachieve this year.

I think where his real value will come is showing guys like Howse/Ferland how hard work can get you to the show. In the end I doubt he spends much time with the Flames.
