Tanguay Entering The Season As A Motivated Man

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

In the NHL, anyone can have a bad season. It happens to journeymen and it happens to the league’s stars – a year when every puck seems to bounce the wrong way, or where every little nagging injury develops into something more. The accumulated effect of such a year on a player can occasionally force some needed introspection. The smart ones go home, crawl under a rock, heal, train harder and prove – to the world – that an off year is just that, a blip on an otherwise successful career trajectory.

Now, two bad years in a row, that’s a different story. Two bad years in a row suggest there may be some erosion in his overall game and that the talent once present is slipping away.

This then is the situation facing Alex Tanguay, one of two new/old players recruited by the Calgary Flames in the off-season.

I think he will fit in well with the flames, and good on them if he does make a comeback. Tanguay is the type of guy you want on your team when he is playing well. I hope he does well in Calgary
