Don't see us moving Stempniak as we will almost certainly need him for depth if we are playoff hunting, look at our recent injuries.

I fully expect Baertschi to be back on the 4th line when he comes back.

I know, I don't really like Stemps on the 4th line either but if he gets outplayed by Sven then I think its the only option. Backlund I think looked good with Sven in the season opener, and since Stajan did well with the Czechs that could be a good option. This of course is the problem with having 10 top 9 forwards, but i don't think its a bad problem to have.

Yea.. I've liked Horaks play yesterday and before he got sent down but theres simply no room for him, its either we dump him on the 4th line or in the AHL, and I think its better for him if he goes to the AHL.

Rundblad and Summers are likely dressing. Stone isn't even on the NHL roster.

Everyone is jumping the gun on Backlund returning. The guy has a torn MCL most likely won't be back full time for at least another month.

Enough of your "realistic time frames". I am going to the optimism thread.

If we can get a 2nd for Stemps i'd do it in a heartbeat (who knows, Gaustad apparently is worth a 1st).. Horak looks like the perfect player to call up if there's and injury so I can see us maybe moving him if we get a good return.

If he keeps this up he could get more than a 2nd at the deadline from a team desperate for some offense.

Especially a team like Pittsburgh which only needs a couple small pieces to be the cup contender.

I have to think there might be some bigger fish Wingers on TD Day though...

Normally I would agree but in the shortened season almost no team will look out of it on deadline day and so Perry and Iginla most likely won't be available. I think if we add a late pick we could get a late first or if we add a player like Butler with the late pick we might even be able to get a good prospect like Maatta, it just depends on who is looking for offense and who else is available.

If the Ducks can't sign Perry I imagine they try to move him.

If we got Maatta for Stemps I would be pretty jazzed. Don't think he would return quite that much though. A 1st, if the stars align is possible though.

Baertschi - Horak - Stempniak
Baertschi - Horak - Cervenka
Baertschi - Horak - Hudler
Baertschi - Horak - Iginla
Baertschi - Horak - Cammelleri
Baertschi - Horak - Tanguay


Baertschi - Backlund - Horak is going to be something we'll need to see.

I used Maatta as an example if they got real desperate, also given how well the Ducks are playing no way they move Perry, they are the 2nd best team in the west and Perry hasn't even caught fire yet, they are going to be a very dangerous team I think they risk losing Perry if they have a chance at the cup.

The Ducks have a history of moving their best (unsigned) players, even if the team is playing well. Pronger as an example.

Would not shock me at all to see him moved.

All I want is a win and to eat cake with Blake Comeau for his birthday. But Because he is in PHX and centering either the 1st or 4th line.....I don't think I will get to do either.

In the end......it's always fun to watch the team fall apart in front of our backups backup... backup.

GOGO Backup, Backup, Backup Goalie!

Big night for Iginla tonight, I predict 2 goals and 1 assist for him in a 4-1 Flames victory.

GFG.

I would be shocked to see them move Perry, the Ducks barely made the playoffs with Pronger it was clear that they need some youth this year they a #2 they aren't going to risk ****ing that up. Also Pronger was moved in the offseason not the deadline.

A Bärtschi - Backlund - Horak seems like a great line. The chemistry that Bart and Backs had was awesome.



And the optimism thread was bumped again, so I predict a Flames loss tonight.

Not just a loss but a brutal beat down, 8-1 Begin with the only goal

2-1-1.

I think he's 2-2, but he still claims he never said 5 goals for calgary in the St.Louis game, he just said 5 goals. I'm giving him the 2-1-1 because of it.

Just asked, he said 3-1 Flames as well.
