If Bärtschi is returning then I hope he'll be on the top 9 taking Horak's spot with the Cervenka and Hudler and not having to play on the 4th line again.

Horak on the line with Hudler and Cervenka was a disaster. Huds and Cervenka were so hot it looked like you could put me on that line and we'd produce. This is not the case. Horak made that line look mediocre at best.

Hopefully Svens back and can hop into the top 6 and Akim can bring us a physical presence we really need

Aliu has most definitely not earned this call up, this is a desperate move to add some toughness and energy to the lineup. I think Begin will sit on Saturday in favor of Aliu on Saturday, possibly with Cervenka moving to center.

Cammalleri - Tanguay - Iginla
Glencross - Cervenka - Hudler
Baertschi - Stajan - Stempniak
Jackman - Comeau - Aliu

Perfect we need more energy and Aliu could really help with that.

Aliu hasn't looked all that great with the Heat, but then again, a lot of people were saying Brodie was a disappointment down there too when he was sent down at the beginning of 2011. Some players just look better in the NHL then they do in the AHL.

I'm really excited to see Aliu. Not much else to be excited about this team.

I wouldn't be surprised if Aliu took Jackman's spot. He was terrible lastnight.

Two assignments and one recall? I guess Baertschi might be good to go. I hope thats the case and that they are not desperately shoving him in when he's not 100%.. Either that or we are going to have a grinder like Comeau in the top 9

Hopefully Aliu brings his A game and does what this team needs him to. Its to bad Ferland didn't have a better pro start and earn this callup.

Ferland is doing great btw, he has 21pts in his last 13 games.

As an overager, I think he will be a solid 3rd line winger one day.

I love Ferland. I really hope he pans out. Seems like a real heart and soul type of player you want on your team.

So....we must be recalling someone else then? I'm fine with the move, can't wait to see Aliu actually. He's going to have a chip on his shoulder and I expect him to lay a few people out in his time here.

Well this is obviously not a move based on performance at the AHL level, but more so an attempt to fill a glaring need on this sad sack roster. I have expressed my displeasure's with Aliu's game in the past so I don't need to keep pounding on the guy, but I just cant see how he is the solution.

Either way, I hope he brings what the team is looking for and can become a consistent role player for us moving forward.

They aren't bringing him in to score, he's going to be here purely to punish people.

I understand that, but he doesn't play that role consistently (even at the AHL level).
