I was optimistic about Backlund's progress when I heard Sutter was fired.

We are the 14th oldest team in the league, so no, that's not true.

Is it sure that Cervenka and Hudler will not play tonight ? And I'm kind of surprise in expectation Horak in third line with his performance in last AHL games. I expected fourth line and lesser ice time for Horak...

It's a certainty that Cervenka will not play. He has to been seen by a hematologist to determine when he can come off the blood thinners, that appointment isn't until Monday. I wouldn't be shocked if Cervenka doesn't see any action until the end of February.

As for Hudler, his fathers funeral was just on Friday and it didn't sound like he was going to be able to leave for North America until Saturday, I would assume that he wouldn't be back until Sunday at some point, too late to be prepared to play tonight. I do however think he will be back for Mondays game against the Ducks.

All new lines in practice today
Cammy - Backlund - Iginla
Glencross - Tanguay - Stempniak
Sven - Stajan - Comeau(I am guessing he is playing here until Hudler is ready to go)
Horak/Begin-Jones-Jackman

Still surprised that Tanguay is still center.

He struggled the first game but was 50% yesterday and having a play maker at center is also an asset.

I like the top line....2nd line looks ok.

3rd line I am not as sure of. Not sure how those 3 will do together.

Yea again I think Hudler takes Comeau's spot when he is ready and then I like that line alot more or Hudler bumps Stemps down who takes Comeau's spot.

At this point, I think the Flames should just accept the inevitable and put Stajan in the top six.

Cammalleri-Backlund-Iginla
Glencross-Stajan-Tanguay
Baertschi-Horak-Stempniak/Hudler
Begin-Jones-Jackman/Comeau

It comes down to utilizing the available talent most efficiently. With good linemates and decent ice-time, Stajan's good for somewhere around 40-50 points (pro-rated). If Backlund can take the next step and put up similar numbers, then the Flames will still have sup-par centre depth, but it could be serviceable, provided the wingers, a position the Flames the strongest in, mitigate that weakness by contributing more.

Judging by performance in 2 games, and by the new practice lines. I would go:

Baer - backs - Iggy
GlenX - tangs - Stempniak
Horak - Stagan - Cammy
Como - jones - begin

Wideman - Gio
Butler - JBo
Brodie - smith

Line 1 gives the kids a power forward. Obviously he can score and pass. These 3 have been creative so far and put pucks on the net.
Line 2 have all scored and have been the teams best 3 so far.
Line 3 are who I consider the most lost of the FWD. all have potential to put up points.
Line 4 is basically whatever.

Once Cervanka and Hudler return you start sitting the guys who aren't performing.

I'm happy with the D, except when they so make mistakes, the mistakes are usually costly. That's just earlier season jitters and all teams look sloppy at times.

Good news.

@DarrenDreger: Cervenka cleared by Mayo Clinic to stop taking his blood thinning meds. Will return to Cgy to be cleared. full prax with Club on Thursday.
Looking to debut on Saturday, most likely then, along with Hudler.

Great, hopefully he fits in well in the top 6 without a big adjustment period.

James Mirtle put together the average weight, height and age of very teams opening day lineup. Thought it was interesting. Here's where the Flames stood:

For the Oilers game:

Hudler-Tanguay-Iginla
Baertschi-Backlund-Stempniak
Glencross-Cervenka-Cammy
Jones-Stajan-Comeau

Gio-Bow
Wideman-Sarich
Butler-Brodie

I don't think they'll put Cervenka and Hudler on the same line, since they're both cold as of now. I also think Baertschi-Backlund duo is pretty sick, and along with Stempniak it's our most creative IMO.

I'd do:

Tanguay- Cammy- Iginla
Baertschi-Backlund-Hudler
Glencross-Cervenka-Stempniak
Comeau-Jones/Begin-Jackman


If wanted, Tanguay can go to center and Cammy to LW.

Well the've already moved Cammy back to LW in practice, so maybe...

Cammy-Backlund-Iginla
Glencross-Tanguay-Hudler
Sven-Cervenka-Stempniak
Horak-Stajan-Jackman

Move Backlund up with Iginla, I think this will work well given Backlund's play so far.

I'd rather have Tanguay on LW but we have a wealth of talent at that position, he or Cammy will have to play centre for the time being. Tangs was better on faceoffs yesterday, so that's a good sign. And he did put up a couple points.

The third line could just be a killer 3rd scoring line.

I like Horak and Stajan together. Jackman has looked good so far, and you can alternate Iggy and Hudler when we're down in the third period.

I think Jones should draw in instead of someone.. Not sure who, but he showed a lot of jump and grit last night.

14th oldest. New Jersey and Florida (1st) surprisingly, are the oldest teams in the league while the Blue Jackets (30th) are the youngest.

Switch Backlund and Stajan. Although I agree in principle that Backlund earn his spot for big minutes, I'm not sure I want him to be hung out to dry like that. Getting beat in the circle and forced to face the toughest competitors is not good for him right now.
