|Flaws:||Needs to continue adding more strength in order to win more battles in the corners. Isn't a natural goal-scorer. Can go a little overboard at times when riling up opponents.|

T.J. Galiardi makes quick amends for Flames | 10/05/2013 10:14 AM
NewsT.J. Galiardi apologized to his Calgary teammates after an ill-timed penalty paved the way for a Flames' loss Thursday but he was taking bows Friday for his winning efforts.
ImpactGaliardi, acquired by the Flames in a deal with the San Jose Sharks in the off-season, had two points in Calgary's 4-3 upset over the Columbus Blue Jackets. "We're going to make mistakes throughout the season, all of us," Galiardi said afterwards. "But it's all in how we respond. Maybe in my younger days I would've let something like that stick with me a little. Now, right away, I just wanted to get back out there and play, and help. I just wanted to respond because that's what good pros, too." Calgary captain Mark Giordano added this about Galiardi: "He's a resilient guy. We're learning that quick."

Galiardi's penalty proves costly for Flames | 10/04/2013 9:52 AM
NewsT.J. Galiardi apologized to his teammates after taking an ill-timed goalie interference penalty.
ImpactCalgary was up by just one goal late in the third period when Galiardi was penalized. The Flames were dominant early with 3-0 and 4-1 leads, but at that point in the contest, they had lost their momentum and had already previously surrendered a power-play goal. Nicklas Backstrom took advantage of the late opportunity and the Capitals went on to earn a 5-4 shootout victory. "Just got a little over-aggressive. I'm accountable for it and we'll move past it," Galiardi said. "You're praying that they're going to kill it off, but it's not like I do it all the time. You learn from it and move on."
Galiardi aims to defy expectations in Calgary | 09/12/2013 10:20 AM
NewsT.J. Galiardi is tired of people predicting that the Calgary Flames will be the worst team in 2013-14.
Impact"It kinda pisses me off when I hear people say all these negative things, 'Oh yeah, have fun finishing last,' stuff like that, even from people from Calgary," Galiardi said. "People like that should just not bother talking. ... If we're not working our hardest, that's when people can have the right to complain and get on us, but if we go out there and play our hardest every game, I think the results will show." The Flames certainly don't look like a promising team on paper, at least not as far as the 2013-14 campaign is concerned, but anything's possible.
Galiardi thinks Flames can make the playoffs | 07/03/2013 10:08 AM
NewsNewly acquired T.J. Galiardi is looking for the Calgary Flames to surprise people next season.
ImpactCalgary have shed a number of their best players since the start of the 2013 campaign in the interest of rebuilding, including Jarome Iginla. "I went through a rebuild in Colorado and we ended up making the playoffs that first year - kind of a Cinderella story," Galiardi said, referencing the 2009-10 campaign. "I realized it's not really about what you have on paper, it's about the relationships you have as teammates and coaches. The chemistry you build throughout the year. It doesn't matter who is on the team, there is so much parity in the league and you can make a splash. I'm hoping we can do that in Calgary." Of course, the Avalanche haven't made the playoffs since, so that makes the story lose a bit of its thunder. As it is, the Flames haven't made the playoffs in their last four seasons.

ImpactGaliardi saw time on a line with Joe Thornton and Brent Burns in the playoffs and enjoyed his role as a top-six forward. "I want to be here. I'm not afraid to admit it at all," Galiardi said. "I'm restricted anyway, so I think chances are I'll be here unless something crazy would happen. Ever since I've found that role and responsibility and trust of the coaches, I've had a lot of fun. I think I've kind of found my place here and I don't want to have to leave already." Galiardi had five goals and 14 points in 36 regular season games and will look to hit the 40-plus point mark if he remains on the line with Thornton and Burns.
