Flames injuries continue

14 Feb

You always hear about the ‘man games lost’ number, which is usually misleading because one game without Sidney Crosby is probably worse than an full season without Raitis Ivan?ns. Who, by the way, played one game for Calgary last season but counted as 81 man-games-lost.

Anyway, this year has been bad, as bad as I can remember. Curtis GlencrossBlair JonesDavid MossLee Stempniak and Derek Smith are all injured right now. That’s your entire second line. The second line tonight against the Leafs? Tom KostopoulosMike Cammalleri and Blake Comeau. That line has a combined 18 goals all year, or as much as Mikhail Grabovski – T.O.’s number two centre.

Calgary has 254 man-games-lost due to injury this year (as of Feb 10) which is second most in the league. Second only to Pittsburgh.  But they win so they’ll get no sympathy from me. Calgary can’t win with a full roster, much less a decimated one. Feel bad for us!

    Let the trade rumours begin!

    Apparently Rick Nash is in play, is he just the guy the Calgary Flames need?
