Mulligan (from Wikipedia): A mulligan, in a game, happens when a player (or General Manager) gets a second chance to perform a certain move or action. The practice is also sometimes referred to as a "do-over".
With the torch and pitchfork crowd in full effect here at FlamesNation lately, I decided to try and lighten things up; have some fun. OR... maybe even further enrage the masses. Let's pretend the deal's the Flames made last winter were never made. Let's give them a mulligan on the Phaneuf deal, the Kotalik deal, the Staios deal & the Boyd deal.

As we near the official end of the season (how awesome have these playoffs been, btw), some rumblings out of Flames-Land that a possible trade may be in the works. Here's what FAN960's 'Boomer' Dean Molberg just tweeted:
Working on a Flames trade rumor this morning. Nothing confirmed, but believe there to be a deal done... Should mention, if true, the deal is not of the blockbuster variety.
After months of scathing reviews, what does DAZ have up his sleeve? Stay tuned to FlamesNation for updates.

The Flames more recent first round pick spent the entire season in the Swedish Elite League, playing for Skelleftea HC. It was Erixon's second season playing pro hockey for the club, despite only recent turing 19 in February. He was a depth player for the team as a 17/18 year old, but managed to play a more prominent role in his sophomore season (45 games, 7 goals, 13 points).

As the Stanley Cup Finals wind down, I wonder if Patrick Kane is the most under-rated player in the NHL; or at least from the Canadian media and fans. Jonathon Toews gets more accolades than Kane, and despite his 22 points, to Toews 27; Kane hasn’t been mentioned as even a possibility for the Conn Smyth.
Why I wonder?

While it's almost a certainty that Backlund will make the big team out of training camp this coming October, the young centerman is still technically a rookie and therefore a "prospect", so I felt it would be meaningful to look at his AHL results from last year, given the fact that he spent a majority of the season there.
