This has to be a joke. Its like they put Jones on waiver to promote Comeau to center? I don't understand..

Looks like Flames management have finally lost it completely after the embarrassment last night. Time to go get the popcorn?

If Backlund or Baerstchi was coming back I don't see why they wouldn't just send down Horak? I don't know what to expect, time will tell.

Highley unlikely, I don't the see the Flames trading Backlund or Baertschi anytime soon. Leaving Kipper as the other option which does not make much sense

I definitely think this could mean the Flames are looking to add a player and unfortunately Jones fell victim to a numbers game due to our contract limit. Feaster drafted him in TB if I'm not mistaken and the Flames always spoke highly of Jones which is why I find this bizarre. I don't think this means Iggy is getting traded or anything, but perhaps this does mean another near trade is in the near future.

And wtf is Comeau doing practicing with Iggy and Glencross?

If I had to guess we are either calling Street who will play center and comeau is filling in, or we are about to be for one ugly game

They are trying him at center according to Hartley.

I'm not a big fan of it but he does bring size, speed and passion (recently) to the position. Horak was completely outmatched last night at center, as he always has. I'm not sure Comeau can do a worse job than Horak did last night.

Other speculation i heard is they put jones on waivers because he has the highest chance of getting claimed, so im starting to think a trade is definitely a possibility

OR Sven is returning and they need to clear a roster spot and feel Street/Horak are better than the 4th liners.

Hartley said today that Sven is questionable to travel with the team for the next two games, and definitely won't be playing. I don't think the move has anything to do with Sven coming back.

It is another possibility but I feel that Jones was great at that 4th line position. I don't think Street/Horak is much of an upgrade considering the role they are going to get. I would hope its not a trade. A trade this early would imply that they are still trying to make the playoffs and might give up some of the future.

Some great quotes:

Hartley:

Quote:
“We’re not Amnesty International,” Hartley was saying after practice. “We’re way too generous. We need to play to win some games.”
And an even better one by Comeau on playing between Glencross and Iginla:

Quote:
“I’m excited for the challenge,” he said. “I don’t think I’m that bad of a player where I think it’s outrageous that I’m playing centre with Jarome and Glennie. I didn’t think of it as a joke at all.”

Panic transactions after a small sample size? Yeah, that sounds like the Flames.

Personally I would have waived Comeau over Jones tho.
Never is an exaggeration.

This certainly could be nothing, but I just think there might be more to come.

I would imagine Danny Taylor will be up and will start soon.

I wonder if the people in this franchise will ever realize just how stupid they sound and look to everyone else.

^ We have a shortage at center so we sent a center to the ahl

I don't see what Hartley and Feaster see in Comeau the guy blows.
