When we last left the Flames, the trade deadline had yet to pass, and there was still a lot of excitement left to look forward to.
That’s… not so much the case now. It was an eventful, fruitful deadline, which is going to see some changes to our report card now. For example, obviously Jiri Hudler, Kris Russell, and David Jones are off the list: they aren’t Flames anymore. And because Tyler Wotherspoon has been demoted, he’s off as well.
I’ve also taken Ladislav Smid off the list; he’s on the injured reserve and it doesn’t seem like there’s anything good going on there, so best to just stay out of that area.
A couple of players have been added, though, of course! Newest Flame Jyrki Jokipakka, as well as latest call up Garnet Hathaway are here for you to vote on. Niklas Backstrom isn’t present, but that’s because he hasn’t really done anything yet – rest assured, after his first start, he’ll be there.
This will probably be Brad Treliving’s last week on the report card, at least until he does something new in the public eye we can talk about. Until then – the Flames played three games since the deadline, and they lost all three of them. Have at it!
