Grant looks slow but wasn’t horrible thus far.


He’s a solid NHL player and funny enough better than a Rowney and McKegg.

I still don’t like Brassard on wing and ZAR in WBS if you are going to try to shoehorn 6 natural centers into the lineup.


I don’t know about a solid nhl player. One good season and squat prior to that. I’ll reserve judgement for now as I didn’t get to watch him much last year.

This game has gone in a different way than I was starting to think it would. In a good way.

Flames defense doesn’t believe in clearing rebounds. Interesting game plan.

Not sure how that clear off the glass wasn't icing but I'll take it.

Remember all the preseason talk about all the good centers we had, I’m just not seeing it. Brass looks lost, Sheahan looks like Sheahan, which isn’t a good thing. Dad really hasn’t done much. Oh well, we are winning anyway, but I can see a center trade for a right handed D man before Christmas

Smith affected by subtle equipment changes ?

This is the worst defense

Glad to see Tkachuk make a miraculous come back tonight to recover from that vicious hit by Letang.

Anyone still thinking that wasn’t a dive?

I just don’t see a guy leaving the bench for a dive. Aside from basketball. Usually if a guy dives he stays on the bench and fakes shaking it off. I’ve never seen a guy leave the game or bench.

Justin Schultz is in the "Notable Defensemen" list? Good to know.

Murray picked an unfortunate game to have a bunch of big saves.

Let's kick the extra point before the end of the second period.

Murray being very aggressive at the top of his crease and Calgary can’t finish.

Have the Pens abandoned the power play approach of dropping the puck back to the trailer for speed, which didn’t seem to work very often ?

He still could have hurt himself because the idiot took a dive. Nothing Letang did caused him to fall to the ice like that. And he’s fine.

The first unit uses it. I'm not sure if I've seen it with the second unit. Certainly not as much.
