Out of the 4 you mentioned, Wideman is the only one who has a comparable shot. Depending on the opposing team, if having a shot like Babs on the 2nd PP unit could expose a weakness on their PK, he could be another weapon there. I actually don't think he has that bad defensively last season, but his skating is atrocious.

Last year I thought he was bad his first year I liked him alot more I hope he can find his form again. I don't see his shot being a huge weapon this team and pp is based on quick smart passes we don't use a big shot alot we try to move the puck around and step up a quick chance down low. Babs has never impressed me with his hockey IQ, maybe if we play him with Jbo it could work I just don't know how he would fit.

I agree with you, I'm just wondering if Hartley thinks he could use him. It doesn't like the Flames are planning on moving him. It sounds as if he's gonna play soon.

I think we will play him for a few games and show teams he is still a top 6 defensemen and then depending on injuries we will try and move Stempniak and Babchuck for a physical #4 defensemen to give us some depth on defense.

Kipper out for 2 more weeks with grade 2 MCL sprain. Hopefully he bounces back fast; in the meantime, Irving has been doing really well and giving us cause for hope.

At the very least this should give us a cold hard look at Irving.

Hopefully the team stops playing like crap in front of him.

Any words on either Baertschi or Backlund's recovery? Is there an expected return day/month?

Backlund has been out a week and it was said 4-6 weeks. So he will probably return Mid-March.

Baertschi is listed as week to week. He has missed about 2 weeks now, I would guess since he is skating now that he could return in the next few games.

I heard Conroy on the Fan yesterday talking about the status on Kipper and Sven. He said Kipper is not quite ready yet, but he's close. He said he will be back sooner than later.

He said Sven has been practicing but no contact yet. Craig said he's personally been doing drills with Sven and they've been doing a little contact in the corners, and hes looks good to. Sven looks to be not to far away, but needs to be cleared for contact and then have a few contact practices with his teammates before he gets back to game action.

@SvenBaertschi on the ice for practice with a regular jersey, by that I think it's safe to say he's been cleared for contact.

I guess that explains Horak going down, looks like Sven might be good to go tommorow.

Any updates on Kiprusoff? I know he was expected to miss two more weeks as of February 14. That should give him about 5 more days before he's ready. Is he skating at all?

I haven't heard anything about him. I wouldn't look into the injury length too much. He has a grade 2 MCL sprain so you can expect him to miss another 1-2 weeks.. Maybe more since he's 36 years old.

He's not a homeless 36 year guy...he's in the NHL. Im sure they'll cough up an update during HNIC tonight.

Good News for #Flames. Miikka Kiprusoff took his 1st skate since injury. Took shots as well. Which makes it even better.. maybe soon.
Good to hear, maybe another week and he could be back

Judging by Conroy's comments I'm going to speculate that Kipper is 7-10 days away.

Probable an accurate assessment
At least he is on the ice, taking shots and doing some butterfly work

If James Reimer farts it's on TSN...but you can't find a Kipper update to save your life.
