Both are playing the defensive vet role with a rookie.

I am fine with Joey Mac playing tonight.

Also I am low on VCash. Willing to become a slave for the rest of your VCash.

Just for the lols, the entire forum should go bet everything on the Flames tonight. If we win, it's awesome, and if we lose, we supported the team.

He has looked good in Penticton in the past years.

Haven't we been doing this every game so far? Weird thing happened, though. I bet 50 on the Flames to win and after the game I had 50 again.

Done, 1113 v$ bet for the Flames.

...just, hypothetically speaking, what happens if one ends up with 0 vCash? Can he never bet on anything again or is it possible to reset your account to the original 500 or something?

Wanted to see Karri get the start tonight but can't really argue with the winning goalie strategy. He'll get his starts soon enough and he needs to be extra sharp then.

Hoping for a good one tonight! Lets get em! Go Flames!

Also just dropped 500 vcash on this game

I thought both were good defensively, Glencross tried to be to cute offensively and Stempniak just needs to shoot the puck he held on to it way to long.

Playing Monahan, Giordano, Glencross, Baertschi and Wideman in one of my fantasy leagues tonight hopefully it isn't a blowout and minus city... Those 5 would probably be benched on other nights though they where all late picks in a deep draft. People said they wouldn't do anything to help my team so I need to prove them wrong.

Obrien is doing wha you expect. He plays physical and with intensity. He's gonna take a few untimely penalties.

Overall the team has looked decent for most if two games and the effort has been consistent. Only two games but the team is already more likeable than last years.

Baertschi has answered. Monohan looks physically and defensively ready. At this point if leave him up, he's not going to learn much by physically dominating juniors.

The oBrien/butler pairing is quite weak. Both have defensive lapses and oBrien can get caught flat footed. The problem is that we have 3 top4 dmen and 3 6/7dmen. We really need a top 4 upgrade.

Once again FOs are a big issue...sigh.

I think when Stajan comes back faceoffs won't be that bad.

Still needs work though, he can't take every face-off with icing and things like that.
Stajan needs to work with the other centres a few of the wingers on it, for sure. At one point in the Columbus game, the faceoffs were somewhere around only ~30% for Calgary. That's embarrassing and it doesn't help hold onto a lead regardless of how hot Calgary's first periods have been.

This makes to much sense MG, great post. Plus Mac did play a good game, has more experience than Ramo, I think it's a good call. It's a long season and we don't need to throw Ramo to wolves all at once.

This is gonna be a good game. With the Dome being rebuilt I think our boys are gonna play really inspired hockey all night. The Flames need to win the physical battle in this one especially on the sisters and Kesler. If they can win that battle and get lots of traffic in front of Lou I actually like our chances. My areas of concern are containing the sisters and we need a very solid effort from Mac.

I'll be watching Colborne more closely than anyone on the Flames. I hope he can control his nerves playing in front of all his family and friends. I love how Hartley is giving him a real opportunity with good mates to produce.

I don't know how this one will end, but I'm stoked as hell to watch!

GO FLAMES GO!!!!!!!!!
