Olli Jokinen left the Calgary Flames’ pre-season matchup with the Phoenix Coyotes last night in the middle of the second period with an undisclosed mid-body injury.  Temporarily stepping in for Jokinen between Niklas Hagman and Jarome Iginla was Alex Tanguay but don’t expect that to be a long term solution.

Offensive Corps: The captain Jarome Iginla led the team in scoring for the ninth straight season but did not display the same scoring tenacity he showed earlier in his career.  His 69 points were his lowest point totals since the lockout began and at age 33, one has to wonder if this will be a…
