As the Calgary Flames get set for the Vancouver Canucks in a split squad affair tonight, here's what we can tell you. I think everybody gets the concept now, one game in Calgary (7 pm, FAN 960 and Sportsnet Flames) and one game in Vancouver (8 pm). But we can also give you a little more as to what you'll see, specifically at the Dome this evening.

It's not understating it to say Flames prospect goalies Leland Irving and Matt Keetley are both entering the most important season of their young pro careers. A consistent and positive year for either or both players would obviously raise their stock within the organization. However, another campaign similar to last year will bring them to a crossroads with the only pro organization they've ever known. For both tenders, now is the time to impress.

The Calgary Flames prospect getting the most buzz coming out of Vancouver's Young Stars tournament seems to be blueliner TJ Brodie. The 2008 fourth round draft pick has shown an impressive skill set in two games so far, and has done a nice job building on the mild buzz he garnered after a nice OHL season with the Saginaw Spirit and Barrie Colts. But with a glut of defenceman already signed by the Calgary Flames, his chances of cracking the big roster are slim. And that's a good thing as he continues to develop.
