FlamesForum.com posting vignettes continues.

Calgary quickly visited Winnipeg for a single game before returning home to face the Edmonton Oilers tomorrow night. The place look to get back on track after their recent loss against the St. Louis Blues. What we got instead was an average effort. Right now the team average while producing below average results.

  • Mark Giordano is not playing good hockey. Behind of the rest of the defensive core struggles.
  • Kari Ramo  crapped the bad yet again. This is either a goaltender problem in his inability to cover the shortside (every single team in the league knows go short side because Ramo cheats), or it’s a goaltender coach problem.
  • There zero secondary scoring from this team. Actually the second like got the only goal tonight, but the shots continue to favor the opposition every single game.
  • Don’t even get me started on possession stats.

Lance Bouma is out until Winter with a knee injury. Granlund was called up but didn’t factor into the lineup. Backlund up to the second line and Raymond on the 4th line, which is weird given his recent improved play. Hartley seems to have an idea where this team is going, but doesn’t want to play the hot hand. Who gets the start tomorrow in the three goalie controversy? Give Ortio a shot, and for the love of god, trade Ramo.
