So Backlund was recalled to watch from the pressbox?

Oh for the love of god. Play him in the ahl, or play him in the big leagues. But the worst possible thing to do is hamper his development by not playing him at all.

Anyways, i like both these teams. I think Canucks come out slow assuming its going to be an easy win. If calgary keeps their feet moving, they can win this one.

This is ridiculous, if he isn't in the lineup tonight I'm going to facepalm until my forehead bleeds.

Take your best prospect and sit him in the box...wow

2nd & 3rd lines revamped

Morrison - Conroy/Backlund - Bourque
Hagman/GlenX - Stajan - Kotalik

My guess is that Conroy & GlenX sit.

Simply said, if the Flames want to win, our 2nd/3rd lines need to show up. They've been invisible for a while now.

Flames need to show some pride and not get down on themselves if the Canucks score first. Play for 60 minutes and the Flames, as poor as their record is, can beat any team in the league.

Play to win. Don't just play to not be embarrassed.

Let's go Flames.

Kids don't stay up late to watch this one.

This game will not end well for Calgary.


If the fourth line is the Flames best line.

Fan 960 sayin' that according to line rushes in practice, it looks like Hagman will sit tonight.

EDIT: It's confirmed - Hagman and Conroy healthy scratches tonight.

There's no way we win this one. The Flames will make it close as they always do, but unless Backlund plays out of his mind, this will be another L.

I don't think Hagman has been great but it seems like we should have sat Morrison rather then having him play wing on the second line. Maybe they think he will play hard against his former team but the guy sure does get a lot of ice time and hasn't produced.

I bet my Vcash on Vancouver, since whenever I do bet, I lose....

Hopefully the boys can pull up their socks/skirts for tonight and play well, but maybe thats asking for too much.

Haha... I just usually go around betting only 50 on 2-3 games that have high odds on winners... for instance, I bet 50 on Russia today for the WJC.

Very low chance they'll win according to stats, but if they win, I can feel better about losing...

I've never seen Backlund play out of his mind, so I guess we've lost already?

I have seen Iginla and Kipper play out of their minds to win games though. I think that's what we'll need tonight.

I hope to see a good game tonight. Backlund is in and the Flames seem to have picked up the pressure lately.
It will also be good to see Morrison come back and kick it in his old house... afterall, he had almost godlike status here once.
