I'd love to know what the hell we are thinking. Seriously. Our best face off taker, now gone.

It's amazing really. And you can't help wonder what kind of message this sends to Iginla,

"We really value your contributions to the Flames organization and would like nothing more than for you to re-sign so we're sticking Comeau beside you. Have fun"

And if Backlund or Baertschi aren't ready for next game (Sven maybe?) then maybe you guys are onto something and there is a possible trade in the works.

First the Joey Mac claim and now Jones being waived... **** I hope Feaster knows what he's doing.

and Jones was horrible last year, chances are since its just been a few good games his numbers will fall considerably.

Stajan has taken 220 faceoffs Jones has taken 70, Stajan plays against top centermen Jones plays against 4th lines, Stajan>Jones

Waiving Jones, I don't agree with.

As for Comeau... I'll be honest guys, I think there might be something here. He got pretty fired up against St.Louis, same deal with Iginla in Dallas. Maybe they can spark something. Would definitely be a gritty line for the Flames, something they really need... and really, if they can develop some chemistry, it gives us more options for the other lines.

I'd still like to have a C over 50% on the team, regardless of who he plays. It's been a long time since we've had a good C at winning draws. Yeller was our last great faceoff taker.

Sounds like the David Moss experiment all over again. I agree with you about Horak.

I would of rather Comeau be waived over Jones without question, but it does make sense that if the Flames were trying to rid themselves of a contract that Jones was waived over Comeau. Jones also brings all the traits that you mentioned.

Conroy says hello. Yelle was great in 04 and 06, but became a 50/50 guy after that.

Totally forgot Conroy came back after 06

Connie was a great 51-54%. I miss him. Regardless, it's been too long since we've had a reliable 51%+

What the actual ****. Jones has been our only mainstay on the 4th line and suddenly he's waived??? Why not waive one if the players that have been healthy scratches?.. Makes no sense to me, especially with our shortage at center

My point is Jones isn't that last year he took 300 faceoffs and was 42% he was just off to a hot start.

This is incredible. It's as if the Flames are committed to having no true centres, and just rolling with wingers up the middle.

He might not be as bad as Comeau.

I don't think the Flames can offer sheet as they don't have a 2nd this year.
