    That was kinda my point. Guys get scratched for a number of reasons in AHL, call-ups, injuries, veteran limits, to spread out playing time... etc. Just assuming he's called up when they don't disclose injuries is foolish.

    Well if he's getting called up, scratching him for tonight's game is smart (isn't he lighting it up down in the AHL again?)

    Don't want to have him playing twice in less than 24 hours. (afternoon game tomorrow)

    If he's being traded...

    The “It’s Happening”gif. just made this more real. I can’t believe we’re getting Mark Stone for Eat Bread.

    Fair point but I did not assume he's been called up, just said "possibly called up?", with other possibilities obviously being a trade or an injury.

    My response was more for the people that would take your post and turn it into a foregone conclusion.

    And here I sit watching the replay of the bronze medal game and all I can think of is how many ex-Flames are in this game.

    Now I have to add about-to-be-Flames too?

    Saw this on my twitter feed this morning, good on Brouwer for calling them out, that's a pretty classless thing to do.

    It's like a 14 year old kid. I think it's ridiculously insecure that Brouwer bothered replying to it, and it really shows that he must (and rightly so) feel ****ty about his level of play if he's even fielding things like this. Also it always irks me to see a grown ass man misuse you're/your.

    Also the dumb kid is right, why didn't brouwer do anything to stick up for johnny? What other point at all is he here for, especially given that he's utterly ineffective at scoring points? The guy probably can't even spell leadership.

    I actually like Brouwer's response, maybe it's just me? I feel like he is being humorous about it.

    What's classless about it?

    brouwer has been a god damn tire fire since signing that deal. It would benefit the Flames if he was no longer on the team so why shouldn't a fan express this?

    I would have been much more impressed with Brouwer if his response had been "you are right I immediately retire and will no longer drag the Flames down." That would have been the proper and right thing for him to do.

    $18 raised so far. Someone tag Ken King to make sure the Flames get their money. We all know they really need it.

    I have absolutely zero problem with what that kid did. I would happily contribute to that GoFundMe if I had the money :laugh:

    If anything, it would've been a dick move to tag Brouwer in the tweet but he didn't.

    Can't hate on Brouwer for accepting that contract but he's an awful player who deserves to get criticized for his s*** play

    Gulutzan said his return will either be Monday against Pittsburgh or Wednesday against Buffalo.
