The insanity in Calgary continues! 6-4 Flames.

Sad to see Karlsson go down like that. Definitely one of my favourite players to watch.

Pretty much ruins any chances the Senators had of a post season run as well.

Definition of sad: watching Jarome Iginla grinning ear to ear after a reg season win in game 10 like it was a playoff game.

Iginla has been a massive disappointment this season, doesn't even look like the same player.

Great asset management by the Flames, should have traded him a couple of years ago for a nice package of picks & prospects. Now you have to figure he's not even worth half of what he was.

Don't mind Calgary winning occasionally. Keep them out of the lottery...at least the top five.

Sad to see Karlsson go down, probably the most entertaining defenseman in the league, would've been right up there for the Norris again this year.

Yes, I am glad that it didn't happen to us - so far (knock*3)

He brushed off Rhett Warrener's comments too, said that he didn't think he had lost a step. I felt bad for him. Calgary was lucky tonight that Bachman played worse than Irving. That won't happen very often, Irving isn't ready to carry the load at this level.

Man that's rough for the Sen's. I've watched that video several times and just don't see how Cooke could have done it on purpose. Sen's fans are upset, but it just happened to be Cooke who did it unfortunately. Pretty much kills their season.

When it rains in Ottawa, it pours. Here's a list of players that are currently out with an injury for the Senators:

Erik Karlsson
Jason Spezza
Milan Michalek
Jared Cowen
Peter Regin
Guillaume Latendresse

If Ottawa can make the playoffs with these guys out, it's pretty much a Cup itself for them. I'll be pulling for them to win games now, just because it would be awesome to see.

I think they should too. Get a good draft pick, and hope Karlsson is ready to go next year and then go for it. Would sure hate to see God errr....Alfredsson finish his career (if he retires after this season) because he team decided to tank.

Also, if no one got my God reference with Alfredsson there, if you have an iPhone and have Siri, if you ask it to show you god (or something to that extent, can't remember fully), it shows you Daniel Alfredsson and his picture with stats and whatnot.

I hate those days when you torture yourself to watching the Cup run. I've been there far too many times. However, I don't watch game 3, 4, or 6 of the SCF. Only watch the ones we win. I watch all of the highlights on Youtube of the previous series' though. Doesn't hurt as much now, but it still hurts.

He's probably off to one of his better starts in the last few years.. other than 2 or so games he's been fine.. You can't expect him to play like he was in his 20s and running over people. He's 'setting up the play' so far rather than goal scoring. He'll catch fire soon enough.

That's disgusting what happened to Karlsson tonight. Such a prominent young player getting injured in such a stupid way. Not sure if I can blame Cooke or not for it but I saw it late tonight in a bar and literally exclaimed a few obscenities when I saw it. Just an ugly thing to happen.

As I said last thread, you guys are out to lunch on Iginla. I'd pay a fortune to get him if he was ever available.

Gillis should make all of his players wear those cut-resistant socks now. No excuse not to.

I agree. The guy is a notoriously slow starter

Always interesting to me how fans individual perceptions differ.

I have thought Iginla has been over-rated for the last few years.

He has produced points after his slow starts, but that is not what I was basing my opinion on. For me, his on ice performance has been, to put it kindly, less than inspiring.

He does not back check, he continually plays the cherry picking game by hanging around the opposition blue line and as for his leadership...well, I have seen far too many "must win" games for the Flamesthe last few years, late in the season, where Iggy has simply disappeared...and the Flames continually have fallen short of the playoffs.

Iggy does seem like a quality guy, full of character, but I haven't seen that translated to on ice performance for a number of years.

Like I said, individual perceptions differ.

I agree that he could be that missing piece; but have a hard time seeing Calgary playing ball with us.

But if Iginla is tradable then Alfredsson can't be considered untouchable, especially considering Ottawa's situation right now... and he wouldn't cost us what Iginla would.

I honestly can't see him NOT retiring a Senator but a chance to play with the Sedins and be on a cup contender might be a move he'd consider.

I agree. To me, he looks like Naslund at the end here. Just playing out the string and he has lost a step. The slow start thing is starting to wear a little thin. I really have enjoyed watching Iginla over the years and admire him but, IMO, he looks like he's lost the fire. It probably comes from carrying the team on his back for years without managment getting him a true number one center. That said, a change of scenery on a playoff team could do wonders for his last few years. He could probably thrive if he was not counted on to be the go to guy all of the time.
