I'm a little worried we aren't quite as Gudas them, but I hope we don't Panik as a result and Brown our pants. Recently, we've been serving up chances on a Palat-er to the opposition and it's been Killorn us. Hopefully we don't make those mistakes which Kostka us the game.

Wait a minute, where the hell are Stajan and Byron? Injured? Both enforcers in over Agostino?

I guess Burke managed to convince Hartley on board the tank...

The Lightning are a couple players away from being a threat imo. Add a top pairing vet who can move the puck and play with Hedman (Ehrhoff??) and another top 6 guy (CAMMALLERI ) and they'd be a threat. Certainly more than any of the other Eastern teams aside from Boston.

With St. Louis gone I no longer hold as much ill-will towards the Lightening.

So is BRYCE VAN BRABANT really playing tonight? If so looking forward to this game. I will take a win, but a loss to guarantee 4th overall is not to shabby either. Gotta love it when you can be happy with either result. I think next year is going to be a great year to be a Flames fan!

Don't care about the lightning anymore. Are there any players from their Cup roster still there?

Anyways, that 4th overall would be great for the rebuild. We need to develop players who can bury chances into the net.

I feel like 4th overall might be just enough to grab Ekblad if GMs continue with their philosophy of not drafting defensemen 1st overall.

Dream on. Edmonton brass would have to be completely braindead to not pick Ekblad. They know a thing or two about winning.

Well, they do need a centre as bad as they need a defensemen. That team has more holes than we do!

They don't need more centres. They need to teach the centres they have how to play hockey or else bring people in who can show them.

First of all you'd like to think they learnt from their mistake. Also, at the time Yakupov was considered the consensus BPA in the draft. This time it's more of a toss up, and Ekblad actually may be the player with the most "wow" factor in the whole draft class.

Except Gagner was never a top 6 centre in his career.

Because of their incompetence, they do need another top 6 centre.

It's going to be pandemonium on the main board if Edmonton wins the lottery again.

I dug down a few pages on this board and did not see a thread dedicated to Backlund, nor is there a general Calgary Flames discussion thread (as far as I can see), so this is a good-enough place.

Many of you know the Blues need center help and a couple seasons ago I was pining for Backlund to join STL thinking that his developmental trajectory was on the upswing.

He is, indeed, scoring at a higher clip this season, but what is holding him back? I thought he would have busted out by now.
