Well Calgary's rolling out about a 65-percent decent roster up front and a bunch of kids (plus Mark Giordano and Cory Sarich) on the blue line, in front of Kiprusoff. That's the bad news.

The Calgary Flames will play their third preseason game tonight at the Saddledome when they take on the Tampa Bay Lightning (7 pm, The Fan 960). Calgary hasn't played since Tuesday, when they took 3-2 and 3-1 wins against the Vancouver Canucks. Tampa Bay is coming off a game Thursday in Edmonton, where they fell 5-2 to the Oilers. A number of notes to set this game up.

The Calgary Flames reduced their training camp roster by 14 players on Friday morning, sending all 14 players to the Abbotsford Heat of the American Hockey League. Of the players, Mitch Wahl is probably the most surprising to be assigned, mostly because of how he's impressed as of late.

A few weeks ago, word was that Daymond Langkow was nearing 100% and may be able to return to duty a lot sooner than expected.

Fast forward to this past Wednesday morning and the situation has reverse itself: Langkow is out indefinitely, Stajan is down for the count and 'tweener Ryan Stone hasn't even skated yet. Calgary's cap problems have noticeably receded into the background, giving the stage to their sudden dearth of centermen.
