Iginla carries him well and when all you need to do is stand there and wait for a one timer life is pretty easy.

His ability to create offense from the perimeter is exactly how he ended up with multiple PPG seasons.
In other words, he's the Marc-Andre Bergeron of offense.

Sounds about right.

There's actually good value in having excellent perimeter players.

Good offensive player, but scared of his own shadow...he will always put up decent numbers on the PP.....

We needed someone to score dirty goals, hence the trade, plus Cammy was talking trash, out loud...that's a no-no in Montreal...glad we made the trade, Bourque this year has been good for us!!

He is not dead yet. Let's hope that an hommage will be made to him while he's still living....There's way too many hommages done when the men or women are dead...how about doing it will they actually can witness it firsthand...

Anyway, let's hope for a quiet outcome. That's all that matters now...
I used to love him ribbing Réjean Tremblay back in the day. It's a shame he won't be seeing the Nords coming back.

Hardly.

Cammalleri scores like a regular top sixer just not a distinguished one and has decent defensive value.

MAB is strictly a PP and offensive zone specialist.

Cammalleri is only comparable to MAB if you are one of those foolish fools who confuse size and physical play with defensive ability.

Iginla doesn't carry anyone anymore. If there is a Flame guility of waiting around for someone else to put them in offensive position its Iggy more than Cammalleri. Guy's declined to a uni-dimensional sniper.

Flames were better off with Cammalleri with Backlund, being the offensive specialist to compliment their best puck control center (with a weak offensive zone game). Tanguay-Cammalleri-Iginla get pinned in their own zone and lit up negating whatever offensive abilities they bring to the table.

No one talking about the Chara dive last night?

Or the fact that Lucic declined to fight Kassian, Lucic likes to pick his opponents

Chara and Lucic are't going to fight goons unless they feel the need to make a statement. Lucic would rather fight the Prusts of the world so he can keep his reputation.

Chara is a diver, now has dived in 3 consecutive seasons. Too bad last night's game was on Sportsnet and not NESN would have loved to hear that *** Edwards

As for Lucic, he still looks like a big "Mongol"

Like who Kassian? He was on waivers a few weeks ago and went unclaimed

Ahh the great Matt D'agostini. Another one of the mythical ex-habs who "should have" been traded for more than what the habs acquired.

Still acquired more than a conditional 5th round pick for a player who couldn't crack the lineup and had to pass waivers to be sent down.

When Lucic declines to drop the gloves with a goon Bruin fans defend him by saving he's too important to the team and he was smart for not fighting.. But when non fighters from other teams decline to go with the Bruin goons they are considered cowards by Bruin fans for not dropping them. Claude Julien as taught them so very well.

I read a conditional 7th (in 2015!!!)

Which is about as cheap as you can acquire a player, unless via waivers.

The Blues sent the conditional 7th with D'Agostini. For the Devils' 5th.

No call to the carpet on the Nash hit on Kopesky? It was a hit from behind, with the elbow, to the head and it was late, even if just marginally.
