Not sure of rules around the August world Juniors have been clarified. Are countries able to invite new players and have a camp? If so I'm guessing kerins has played himself into a pretty good shot at team Canada.

If any offer comes up for Monahan, should we just take it? Assuming he'll waive his NTC?

– % on Monahan getting traded? I think it’s very unlikely but I have this bad feeling we’re in for a shocker tomorrow
– Who will the Flames pick up for depth on D?
– Stick with the new line combos for now or go back to the original?
– Thoughts on Jarnkrok in his first two games?

- Before the deadline? I give it 25% chance of happening. His cap hit is a lot to take on mid-season, but I could see the Flames making something happen at the draft.
- I would guess somebody like Dean Kukan or Mark Pysyk or Brett Kulak. (Guessing.)
- I think Darryl Sutter will roll out the new lines against San Jose, but I also think he’s going to keep shuffling up their lines to see what works and to see what different dynamics can emerge. The whole point is to prepare the team for a (long) playoff run, and you’ll need a bunch of different styles of game and line combinations to win playoff series.
- You can see that Calle Jarnkrok is still figuring out the nuances of the Flames style and system so far, but he hasn’t looked out of place at all. In a week or two, he’ll really start finding his groove I’d imagine.
