It's unfortunate that Jensen has already been called up this season, because giving him the opportunity to play with Roy on that third line would have been ideal.
I'm pretty concerned that it looks like this team is always going to be one injury away from Dale Weise playing in the top nine. If this were the playoffs, I would prefer to see Jensen given an opportunity on the 3rd line over Weise. It worked pretty well for the Rangers last season when they did something similar with Chris Kreider.
I am going to this game tonight and hoping for a better experience than the last...The Canucks lost the last time they were in Calgary and I had a Flames Fan screaming "Go Flames Go" in my ear the entire night!
Hopefully we don't take them too lightly, they played us really well last time despite the score.
Yup, surprisingly the Flames looked like a real hockey team after that early Burrows goal. The Canucks will need to be sharp and IMO a strong 1st period will go a long way in this game.
Chris Higgins has been our hardest working player and had chemistry with Roy. I know its obvious but no way Weise can fill that void. Weise is a 4th liner and it's gonna be up to Roy and Hansen to carry line 3. Fortunately, Canucks still have a solid 1-2 punch with Kesler back.
Finally, Daniel Sedin... Please come back, where'd you go??!! 10 goals in 39 games, tied for 78th in the league. WTF ?! Your supposed to be the man. He has not scored in b2b games all year. Shooting % is low, almost career low. Henrik has been good, Daniel needs to be much better and i think he will be.
