Don't have a good feeling about this one. Kipper needs to bounce back like he always does.
At the same time neither Backlund or Cammy played great on the defensive side of the puck the first 2 games, having Comeau and Stajan on the ice could allow Sven to use his speed.

I said before the season started that the Nucks will be a fringe playoff team. Our lineup is far more deep than theirs, hell even one if their posters is asking about Stajan.

Flames win 4-3!

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

I think Hartley is trying out as many combos as he can to see who clicks this time he is trying Iggy and Backlund and he needs to get Cammy going.

Thats my point though, if you don't give Kipper some consistency he is going to be sluggish for most the of the season, and if Kipper is sluggish we wont win many games.

Iggy and Cammy should be on opposite wings that's a given. If they can find the perfect piece for the middle they will put up some points.

Sven is the type of player who plays well with everyone. Anyone who was on his line in on the Heat saw their production shoot up.

Backlund is needed on that first line right now, I'm not too worried about Sven. Team first.

So far ive predicted both flames losses, but tonight that changes. The game is too big for us to lose and we will win.

3-2 Flames
Goals: Iggy x2 Cammy
Goals: Burrowsx2

I agree, Sven will be Sven regardless of his linemates, I'm more worried about getting Backs production running so he doesn't lose his swagger, I know it seems a little weird but I think this team could sink or swim based on Backlund this year, I think he has the potential to solidify himself as a number one center that the team needs to succeed and or he will not and we'll be in the same position we were in the last 3 years.

I think Backlund is capable of it, I just think he needs to feel success in the NHL and he will take that baton and friggin run with it, as far as he wants.

I disagree, we have seen him be sluggish for the start of every year without any rest why no try to mix it up.

Horak was assigned to Abby do the lines will change, I guess begin will be in on the 4th line.

Our healthy lineup is very solid.

We're also missing 66% of our second line, what's your point? If you would like to talk injuries lets have a peek at the man games we lost last year. If you would like to brag about what your healthy lineup looks like there's a Canucks board for that.

I don't know about the rest I'm not Nostradamus, but I do also believe Baer Cheese scores tonight. He's due, with everything he's generated out of nothing, something has to go in eventually.

We are also missing 66% of our second line, I think we all know you have a solid lineup when healthy but right now I think it is clear we have better offensive depth but when healthy the Canucks have more top end talent.

The best part about a Flames win tonight would be tuning into Vancouver radio for the post game call-in show. Light 'em up, I want to hear some crying on air tonight, and not on 960!
