So now that the Flames have traded J-Bo and Iginla and have lost Glencross and Wideman to injury, they call up seven AHLers and... start to win games. Nothing like playing your way out of a top-five pick when the season is already a lost cause.
Not that I would ever hope for my team to lose; its just frustrating that they piss the season away when they have their full roster and then actually start to put out a consistent effort when they are essentially fielding an AHL team. Even so, it was nice to see the young talent playing to earn a roster spot for next year - Reinhart looks great and I'm hoping Baertschi will be a regular next season. Pretty glad that they re-signed Joey Mac, too. He beasted on the Wild tonight and has done incredibly well for a waiver pick-up.
Nice to see some vintage Kipprusoff in what may be his final few games. Great reaction from the crowd at the Saddledome... it'll be strange to not have him back next year.
