After last night’s 3-1 loss to the Washington Capitals, the Calgary Flames have completed 10 games. It’s a nice even number, and for some reason the Flames have now played more than anybody else in the league save for the Boston Bruins.
Is it possible for the schedule makers to dislike both teams? Perhaps. But in another weird twist, both teams have won 5 of their 10 games. Spooky.
After 10 games, the Flames boast a 5-4-1 record. Who are your surprises and disappointments through this first chunk of the schedule?
My surprises: Paul Byron (only 4 points, but he’s been buzzing a lot) and Joe Colborne (8 points! and good use of his big frame)
My disappointments: Curtis Glencross (only 4 points, and he’s been largely invisible in a contract year) and Smid and Engelland as a pairing (they haven’t been very good; basically the Bizarro Brodie/Giordano).
