After last night's NHLer-filled roster, the Flames are back to icing a rag-tag group of enough guys on one-way deals to fill out the league-mandated minimum roster spots, and that means a whole lot of kids.

A fairly veteran squad has landed in Saskatoon for the Calgary Flames who will take on the New York Islanders in exhibition action tonight (7 pm, Rogers Sportsnet Flames and The FAN 960). 22 players made the trip, and with no morning skate today, we won't know till pregame warmup what we're looking at in terms of lines, lineup etc.

(Today we present the second part of Robert Vollman's Flames Comparables series. This post will focus on some "supporting" offensive players)
Matt Stajan, 27
Acquired in the Phaneuf deal, the Flames have invested $3.5 million a year in Matt Stajan, so you know they'll give him every opportunity to succeed. Stajan has shown steady improvement throughout his career, leaving him on the brink of breaking the 20 goal and 60 point barriers after two seasons on the cusp.

The Calgary Flames will take on a rather veteran Phoenix Coyotes lineup tonight at the Saddledome for their fourth preseason affair this year (7:30 pm, TSN and The FAN 960). The Coyotes team will resemble very closely their opening day roster, while Calgary will have a number of notable names not playing. It's also the home debut of Henrik Karlsson in net.
