I'm ok with a new Baertschi thread. Sure there's a prospect thread, but Sven is not the average prosepct. I understand the need keep a board organized, but it's not like the Flames board is overflowing with traffic.
So exciting to hear Sven is ripping it up in the playoffs. It's always a little worrisome if you hear that a guy isn't performing well under pressure. This kid seems to thrive when it matters most. We have ourselves a special one.
Honestly, I haven't noticed him much. Which I guess is a good thing. He certainly isn't out of place often. He does however have 1 goal and 1 assist in the three games. I also don't focus on watching him as much as I do Baertschi. Every time Sven is on the ice, he makes something happen.

I'm sure someone who watched Portland more often will be able to provide more details. (Didn't we have a poster from portland who watched every game?)
