After seeing the Flames lineup, I don't know how they managed to look even more mediocre.

Canucks should be able to win this one. Let's see how Cory responds from his last start.

I have spoken to Calgary fans I know, and some of them have predicted Calgary to finish as high as 4th in the West.

I swear some of them are so optimistic it borders on delusional.

Other homerisms I have encountered that make me roll my eyes:

-Sven Baertschi is supposed to be a lock for the Calder, and everyone better watch out when the amazing superstars Jiri Hudler and Roman Cervenka (who?) get here.

-Kiprusoff will win the Vezina and the Jennings, and he won't have to share the Jennings because he's playing all 48 games.

-Alex Tanguay will excel as a top centre in the NHL after not playing the position since before he had pubes.

-Jay Bouwmeester will finally be the offensive defenseman Calgary expected him to be when they signed him originally. (That may actually happen, but not until next year, that's the last year of his current contract)

-Iginla will re-sign with Calgary and will practically seal his fate to retire without a championship. (For some reason many Flames fans prefer this, selfish fools)

If Vancouver shows up for any game opening week, this better be the one. Unleash the big guns against this patchwork team of veterans, kids and AHLers. Don't take any crap from the likes of Stajan,Glencross and Stempniak, and any other blue collar lunch-bucket forward. Guys like Jay-BO and Butler don't hit barely at all, so this should be easy, if the Canucks show up at all.

What are you talking about? The Flames are one of the teams that gets good value contracts

5 - 0 Canucks Cory with 29 save shutout

D.Sedin Kassx2 Raymond Garrison

henrik with 4 assists

Hoping that day off to regroup and then a solid practice yesterday will help the Canucks bring their game back up and just bury the Flames.

Side note: Apparently calling it the Game Day Thread is a good way to root out the users here who have some minor OCD. ;)

I haven't grabbed a coffee yet, and I'm glad I didn't, because after reading that I would have to be drying out my keyboard.

Lames are going to get rolled, they are unfortunate enough to draw the game that will feature a severely pissed off Schneider. Not to mention the green men who will be seeking retribution on Giordano for the ATB commercial.

How can Schroeder have any success, Raymond and Weise, really?? That is really our fourth line. I dont know why offensive player (specially rookies) aren't put in offensive role or real offensive player, isn't it obvious what the line should be?

I just read that Burrows will center the 1st line, as per NHL.com


Sooooo. Where does that leave the lines? Splitting Sedins?


edit. IGNORE.
The great staff at NHL.com had another misprint, it has been corrected. Hes on 2nd line apparently.

Had a sweet Signature, but thank's to lies from ARIGOLD, and a mod who did no investigation WHATSOEVER, it was removed.   Thanks Mods!   The Arigold bus needs to stop, the guy is a complete jerk.

I'm going to predict a 5-2 win for the good guys. Kiprusoff has been really weak to start the season and I've been reading Calgary fans even worry about Kipper this year. I think this will just be a game in which everything comes together for the Canucks. The offense will be strong, the defense will be solid and Schneider will come back with a great performance in net.

CAL goals:

Cammalleri (PP)
Baertschi

VAN goals:

D. Sedin 2 (1 on the PP)
Burrows
Weise
Higgins (EN)

It's a misprint, read the article and even NHL states he will be centering the 2nd line coming down from the first line. I swear their journalists are really rusty.

Weise's play the last couple of games has shown that he deserves a shot with more minutes, plus he's a decent skater and Schroeder/Raymond are very good skater. It'll be a fast and defensively reliable line hopefully. It's one of those boom or bust experiments, and hopefully it works out.

I'm a little excited about that Flames third line, Baertschi - Backlund - Horak. Of course I want the Canucks to win, should be an interesting tilt.

Again, I'm not sure if that's what the lines actually were. I'm just giving my best bet based on 5 on 5 TOI from the last flames game.
