It is good to see the success Dube has had in the minors so far. I hope he is getting some reps at centre too.

Is Dube the future RW for Tkachuk/Backlund?

Kansas City loaned forward Jared VanWormer to Stockton today. I've been watching him all year and hoping he would finally get his shot up there. He is one of the alternate captains for the Mavericks and has been called up to 3 different AHL teams this season. He was also the Mavs all-star representative and while he has been in KC this year he has racked up 18 goals, 25 assists for 43 points in 47 games.

Not a great angle, but Valimaki with a beauty off the rush tonight.

Pretty scathing report on the Heat over at FlamesNation. Stockton is out of the playoffs again and the columnist laments both the lack of talent supplied by the Flames and the coaching.

And yet some solid/decent players have graduated (however temporarily) to the Flames - Andersson, Kylington, Mangipane, Rittich - With other notables Dube, Vilimaki, Lazar.

Leads me to ask - which is preferable from the farm team - developing good players for the NHL or Having a winning/championship minor team? (would like both, I know, but that seems a bit unlikely.) Do the Flames owe Stockton fans anything?

The consistent trading away of top picks has done the Heat no favours. The outcome for the Flames has arguably been beneficial, but the outcome in the AHL is a severe lack of defence and 'top end talent'. The problems the Heat will be having have no apparent solution in coming either. The Euro players and CHL players coming in are mostly long shots at having NHL careers. Its not the end of the world, but it is a good thing that the Flames will be drafting in first round this year.

Because the farm team is owned by the Flames, number 1 priority is developing good players.

Keeping the fans in Stockton happy is secondary and really only of some concern to them because it helps to offset the cost of running a team and keeps business partners happy (e.g. the city that owns the arena).

That being said the Flames did get some AAAA players in Stockton like Taormina, Quine, Graovac, and Robinson who have a combined guaranteed AHL salary of $1.55 million.

They are investing in the team. The results just haven't been there.
