Patrick Marleau - Joe Thornton - Joe Pavelski
Ryan Clowe - Logan Couture - Martin Havlat

Frazer McLaren - Andrew Desjardins - Adam Burish

Marc-Edouard Vlasic - Brad Stuart

Antti Niemi

Players to watch (courtesy of the Flames website):

Logan Couture (Last season: GP: 80 | GOALS: 31 | ASST: 34 | PTS: 65)
Quote:
Couture has quickly become one of San Jose’s biggest scoring threats, posting back-to-back 30-goal seasons. The London, ON. native was an all-star last season and nothing in his game has given Sharks fans any reason to doubt they won’t get the same effort this season out of the 23-year-old.
TJ Galiardi (Last season: GP: 69 | GOALS: 9 | ASST: 6 | PTS: 15)
Quote:
Joining the Sharks with the now-departed Daniel Winnik at the NHL Trade Deadline last season, Galiardi struggled in his short audition. Better acquainted with head coach Todd McLellan, the Calgary Hitmen alumnus will have a better opportunity to prove he can hang in San Jose.
Joe Thornton (Last Season: GP: 82 | GOALS: 18 | ASST: 59 | PTS: 77)
Quote:
Though one of the league’s elite passers and playmakers, Thornton has failed to reach the 80-point plateau in each of the last two seasons. He’ll come into the season with a little extra motivation and comes into the year game-ready after a successful stint with HC Davos of the Swiss League during the lockout.
Goaltenders Matchup:
Miikka Kiprusoff (Last Season: 35-22-11, 2.35 GAA, .921 SV%)
Antti Niemi (Last Season:34-22-9, 2.43 GAA, .910 SV%

More Information Before The Game Today:
- The Flames were 2-1-1 against the Sharks last season
- Chewbacca, I mean Brent Burns, is a game time decision following a hernia surgery
- Justin Braun (hand) and Jason Demers (wrist) are out for the Sharks
- Douglas Murray looks like he belongs on Honey Boo Boo or Swamp People or something. Seriously, look at this.

And finally...

GO GO


Sorry for no theme today, I tried to do the Lego thing but it wasn't working out. I'll try for a theme for the Ducks tomorrow!

A friend of mine posted this on Facebook, I felt it was necessary to post in the GDT, since we are playing the Sharks today.

Brent Burns is creepy.

4-2 Flames

Iginla, Smith, Bartschi and Backlund with the goals for CGY.
Clowe and Boyle for SJ.

I'm more bothered that he would be replacing Smith. If anyone was shaky enough to lose their spot last season, my pick would be on Butler.

I'm nervous for Wideman-Butler, but I haven't seen them play together yet, so we'll have to see. Hope Hartley knows what's up!

Yeah, IMO this home stretch could define the season.

I also see that flames.nhl.com has Begin starting instead of Jones. I liked Jones last year...Hope he's not hurt.

Could just be Hartley's preference after this mornings skate. It was between Begin and Jones.

On a separate note, I'm equally displeased to not see Brodie playing in the opener this afternoon. But maybe he just didn't impress Hartley this morning.
