Poor Ramp.

Hopefully Ortio can miraculously re-find his game and steal a few.

He'll have to start a game or two for that to work...

Actually, he's headed to Arizona from Stockton.

Ortio has shown massive potential in the past. If he put's it all together he can still be a very good goalie.
He obviously sucks this year, but it happens to young players. Despite that he still has a 9-9 record. Although, its not unheard of for a player to find their game all of a sudden.

It's also not unheard of for a player to become completely irrelevant despite their potential. Leland Irving being one of them.

So maybe we should see how he does on this 2nd go round before we write him off?

He knows this could be his last shot, not only with us but potentially his last shot at an NHL gig.

Oh I agree it can go either way. I'm not saying he will. My guess is he goes into one game a gets lit up.

As for Leland I honestly never thought he was a good pro goalie.

I was a big Ortio supporter coming into this year, but I've lost a good amount of confidence that he'll be part of the Flames future in any way.

He's been unimpressive in the AHL and only rarely do average AHLers perform better in the NHL.

I'm ok with giving him another shot given where we are in the season and the standings and considering Hiller is the best shot we have at making the playoffs at this point. This should be the least amount of pressure on Ortio to perform that he's going to get with this team so if he can't make a big slash, I'm fully ok writing him off with the big club.

Hopefully Ortio can find his game. That looked real bad for Ramo, feel bad for him as he really has been good since coming back from the AHL.

Hehe.

He was assigned to Stockton, from Arizona, too.

This is untrue. There are plenty of examples of "mediocre" AHLer (by stats) performing well in the NHL. Corey Crawford and Pekka Rinne come to immediate mind. There almost isn't a correlation between AHL stats and NHL stats. They're a very different game with much better defense played in the NHL but much better shot-takers, whereas the AHL is helter-skelter but the shot-takers aren't very skilled.

I hope to be proven wrong, obviously goalie development has a longer timeline than any other player so yeah, he could be a very legit tender, I just don't think we have the time or roster spots to wait him out.

IIRC, weren't Hammond's AHL numbers pretty mediocre before his call-up last year?

Meh. Doubt he plays unless it's in relief should Hiller gets shelled or injured.

There's no real pressure so maybe he does well in those situations.

As for why he was recalled, Treliving needs to know whether he's worth qualifying.

I honestly don't even think he'll play unless A) Hiller gets hurt or B) Hiller is horrific. I could seriously see Hiller starting 20 games in a row, look no further no Nakladal.

Let's hope he doesn't get a chance. You can count the good games Ortio has had this year on one hand. Poor choice in recalling Ortio, IMO; he has not come close to outplaying Poulin.

Why wouldn't you want him to get a chance? At least then it's not a mystery if he still sucks or not.

There is no mystery, I watch him regularly. He sucks even in the AHL.

I think he was recalled partly so the Flames can get a final look at him, and also because he won't play much so it ensures that Poulin gets more games.

True, but it's not too late for Ortio to lead us to a 30-3 finish is what I'm saying.
