Quotes from Garbage Bag day

Pat Steinberg ‏@Fan960Steinberg 1h
Steve Begin doesn't know if he'll be back with the #Flames next season, but he made it pretty clear he'd love the chance.

Pat Steinberg ‏@Fan960Steinberg 48m
"You want to be wanted" is the quote Cory Sarich gave us when asked if being in Calgary was still his desire. #Flames

Roger Millions ‏@RogMillions 1h
Tj Brodie has accepted an offer. From Team Canada to play at World Championships in Stockholm. #Flames.

Pat Steinberg ‏@Fan960Steinberg 36s
Backlund says he's off to the World's to play for Sweden if he gets the all clear from #Flames doctors.

Pat Steinberg ‏@Fan960Steinberg 5s
#Flames forward Curtis Glencross the first guy to hint strongly towards Kiprusoff not coming back.

Pat Steinberg ‏@Fan960Steinberg 8s
Here's what Glencross said re: Kiprusoff via @SUNGilbertson “Just talking to him, I don't think he'll be back but we're all hoping he is.”

Wes Gilbertson ‏@SUNGilbertson
Does Brian McGrattan want to be back with #Flames? You bet. "I never wanted to leave in the first place ... It was awesome coming back."

JermainFranklin ‏@TSNJFranklin

Baertschi said someday he wants to be the face of the franchise... knows at just 20 he has a lot muscle to build and maturing to do

Pat Steinberg ‏@Fan960Steinberg 5m
Sven Baertschi is disappointed he can't play for Switzerland at the World's, but groin injury suffered in Nashville will prevent it. #Flames

Pat Steinberg ‏@Fan960Steinberg 5m
Lee Stempniak won't play for Team USA at the World's because of a family commitment. #Flames

It's obvious Sarich doesn't want to be here. Trade him for a bag of pucks.

Begin won't be back. He had a good year but he is def more than replaceable.

Love the quote by Baertschi, shows a lot of motivation by him to not only make the team but be a huge part of their success.

Also pretty obvious most fans don't want him back...guess you can say feeling is mutual.

McGrattan - Bouma - Begin

I could get excited about that as a 4th line next year.

If it came down to Begin or Jackman, I guess I would take Begin. Jackman did a whole lot of nothing this year.

I like Bégin, I think the way he plays is contagious for his linemates; no quit... I mean hell, didn't he want to go play for Hartley in Switzerland when his hips were still all screwed up? Warrior.
I think he'd be a good guy to keep around to patrol the fourth line, with guys like Bouma/Aliu/Big Ern. Have to make an energy line of warriors.

Sarich has worn out his welcome in Calgary. I thought it was apparent last season, even with rumours of him wanting a trade, etc etc... He skates ridiculously slow, he's feisty, but more often than not is just out of position... He is a warrior as well, but I don't think there's room on the Calgary Flames for more over-the-hill, old timey NHL'ers like Sarich. I'm pretty sure some team would give their 3-5th round pick for him. I'm certain in fact. A lot of teams wouldn't mind a 6-7 guy with some grit.

At least he knows how the fans feel about him.

Giordano says he doesn't think we're going to have a rebuild.

Thoughts?

I think it's obvious Sarich is disappointed he doesn't feel wanted. Which tells me he very much wants to be here but it just isn't working out.

I agree on Begin, was very happy with him and would welcome him back in a 13th/14th forward type role, but I would look at other options first especially at center so Bouma can stay on the wing.

Maybe he thinks the team is now built? Like an addition through subtraction type of thing

Or maybe we're back into the retool/rebuild semantics

It doesn't sound like Sarich doesn't want to be a Flame, but rather he doesn't want to be on a team that doesn't want him, as illustrated by him being a repeated healthy scratch this season. It's a shame because he's easily the most physical player on the team and would be an ideal number 6 on a rebuilding team.

In his interview, he talked about how management in Calgary has a win-now attitude, how he thinks a lot of players will be available in the off-season with the cap going down, how management is always willing to spend to cap, and how Calgary has a lot of room to spend up to the cap.

Putting that all together, he feels that ownership aren't going to give it time, and that the Flames are going to be buyers in the off-season to try to make the playoffs next season.

I think that he thinks, and maybe management agrees, that the moves they made this season will allow us to finish re-building our core in one year.

By contrast, Cammalleri doesn't profess to have a clue about management's intentions, and says that he expects to meet with them to discuss their future plans and whether it's something he wants to be a part of.

That explains a lot. Giordano is still in denial about missing the playoffs for the 4th straight year.

Feaster said were a playoff team.....playoff team.....playoffs....

Feaster said he would address it at the Management/Coaches meetings...I think it will more or less be left up to the coaches if they bring him back. Feaster did say that they understood Roman only just started to "play his game" towards the end of the season after lingering healthy and conditioning issues.

Personally, I hope we bring him back for a full season.

Gio's quote probably means the team won't be doing firesales anymore, aka won't be trading him.
