The Calgary Flames are off to a mediocre start, filled with random bursts of hot and cold play. Few players have been consistent, especially the top line, who are in a bit of a slump.
However, of those few players, Niklas Hagman has stood out for me. Other than the occasional game where no one played well (cough...Capitals game), Hagman has repeatedly shown his work ethic and just how much skill he has.
So when you hear someone say, "The only good thing to come out of that Toronto deal was Ian White," reply, "No way man!" and list these reasons as to why Hagman should be appreciated in Calgary.
