Ironically the Colorado Avalanche and Jarome Iginla are next on the Calgary Flames schedule.  It is ironic because this morning the Calgary Flames just reassigned 2/3 of the players they acquired for him.  Gone are Ken Agostino and Ben Hanowski.  Sooner than later Morgan Klimchuk will complete the re-assigned trifecta.  Agostino was a disappointment this preseason as I was excited to him possibly play an off wing and pair up with an equally speedy Mason Raymond.

Bryce Van Brabant and Garnet Hathaway were the two players on the list that had had the strongest showings of the players on this list.  More honestly, Van Brabant and Hathaway are the players that most pleasantly surprised me.

David Wolf and Keegan Kanzig take the award for players that disappointed me the most this training camp.
