OMG it's going to be an emotional puck drop!! Hopefully it continues to stay exicting.
I like the projected line-up. My biggest concern tonight is Glencross because him and Bourque were good buddies, and he might think he's being replaced by Cammy. I think we should keep that top line together because Glenny should continue to be rewarded for his hard work and chemistry lately, plus I want Cammy to get the message that we're playing a team game here in Calgary.
We need Stemps and Combs to get on the score sheet soon. I'd like to see both those guys get a goal tonight.
From Sutter's comments on FlamesOnDemand it seems they expect Cammalleri to step in to that second line role and start lighting it up. He needs to play with our top players to be effective, he won't be putting up big numbers with Backs and Stempniak.
Once Tanguay comes back though, it won't matter who the center is on that second line.
Just having Cammy back I'm thinking will definitely boost Iggy's morals even more. Expect him to have a helluva game. Really pumped for this one. Almost got tix for it too.... so mad... almost made it to 3 games in a row.
