They're one of the best teams in the league. Paajarvi scratched from St. Louis doesn't really mean much. I'm not saying it's great, but it's not that big a deal imo...

(I still think we fleeced them)

Anyone remember a team that went 9-2-1 to start last year?

That's Calgary this year, the bubble will burst.

Not great for Paajarvi, but STL is easily the leagues deepest team.

Flames win. Four games in, still no regulation losses.

I know this won't continue forever, but it lends credence to the theory that perhaps Kipper, bouwmeester and especially Iginla were holding the team back.

Well, it didn't take long for the Calgary media to get delusions of grandeur.

It's weakening, Wes.

But I have to admit, this only increases the pressure to win tomorrow.

That Calgary team can not hold a lead even with their point streak they do not look good besides Monahan.

Lots of unreasonable butt-hurt in this thread, don't be like CP guys.

They've done a good job - their later-round picks all seem to be emerging as legitimate talents.

Backlund, Baertschi, Brodie al lseem like the real deal.

They've made some astute signings/trades - Jones, Stempniak, Galiardi, Glencross are all solid vets to surround the kids with.

But most of all - they're getting the goaltending. MacDonald has been ridiculous.

Agreed. They've played a lot better than the Oilers, that's for sure.

I disagree that they've played better but I certainly wish that we had their goaltending right now.

Not impressed with him, or as impressed as I was when I saw him in that series against the Oil Kings.

Whatever, they've got a new star for me to hate in Sean Monahan. And as a rival, that's the highest compliment you can give.

3-3 in Tinseltown now. The Kings are off to a slow start although wasn't that also the case last year?

Ouch. Props to the Senators for pulling that out. They were getting dominated earlier.

Darn, LA just scored in the extra session, 4 on 3.

It's the case most years... their playoff performances have tricked people into forgetting that they always seem average in the regular season.

They definitely have the capacity to raise their level of play to a scary level. It's not something that is sustainable over an 82 schedule but they do enough to win just over half of their regular season tilts.

I wish the Oilers could afford themselves that level of nonchalance.

Their strategy is simple. Physically beat the living **** out of you until they win the turnover game.

You know Dubnyk's playing like crap when you hear this lol. Don't worry folks, Dubnyk's lowest SV% is .914 these past 3 years, we really don't need to be jealous of a duo of goalies with 3+ GAA and 890 something SV%.

CP is already throwing around the P word... Oh and all their prospects are golden despite most never playing an NHL game.
