Player Notes in the Draft (Dec 17)

Things are not very rosy, despite stringing together some wins, for the Calgary Flames, as the coaching staff is making sure that they get the most out of every player. Lee Stempniak is now in the crosshairs, as he is now scheduled to be in the press box for tonight's game in Boston.  Stempniak has 13 points in 26 games this season for the Flames, but has still drawn the ire of Bob Hartley.

Maybe this is the kick in the pants that Stempniak needs to start putting up some more points for Leo in the draft.  Leo only sits 3 points clear of last place in the standings and could use a little bit of help making his way back up.

The St. Louis Blues are dealing with some injury problems of their own, as Jaden Schwartz sat out last night's game against the Ottawa Senators with an undisclosed muscle injury.  Schwartz is listed as out day-to-day for the time being, unsure about how much more time he is going to miss.  

Not sure how many more injuries Tony can handle this year.  Already without Justin Abdelkader, Alex Burrows, Henrik Zetterberg and Alex Edler, Tony's team has just been decimated by injury and still, he isn't out of the top 20, sitting in 19th.  Incroyable!
