Maybe a Ray of Hope for the Defense?

by Anne

If the Marc-Andre Gragnani experiment falls through, there may be hope. Looks like Mike Weber is back to practicing at full after his knee surgery a few weeks ago.

Gragnani has been fine (its only been two games). He's a +2 with two shots on goal while logging some short handed time and just over 12 minutes one game and just over 11 in the next. His stats have been roughly the same as Paetsch's over those two games and the two have mostly been paired together. They've been decent, and I'm not blaming either of them for the losses as neither of them have been on the ice when goals were scored. However, Gragnani was in the box when Mike Cammalleri scored in the third to make it 4-2 Flames. But if we're talking penalty minutes, M-A G wins that battle with Mike Weber. Gragnani 34 PIM in 44 games, Weber 80 PIM in 35.

Its just good to see that we don't necessarily have to push the panic button as Weber gets healthier.

Any word on when we'll be getting back Teppo or Hank or Reggie?!

Remember when we had too many defensemen? That was nice.

    I miss the good ol' days...
