Calgary Flames fans have already fallen in love with Mike Cammalleri.

The 2008-09 version. The one who sniped 39 goals and put up 82 points.

They might not be so enamoured with the recent numbers Cammalleri has put up, but the speedy winger said he's eager to pick up where things left off in Calgary.

"One of the reasons I was brought here is to produce offensively," Cammalleri said.

"That's something I'll look to provide, and hopefully immediately."

The stats weren't as flashy in Montreal, where he dipped to 50 and 47 points the past two seasons.

And he has just nine goals and 22 points in 38 games this season.

"It hasn't been a great year-production-wise, no doubt," Cammalleri said.

"I don't think it does any good to try to figure out in front of the cameras what it specifically was or wasn't. I'm just going to worry about playing as hard as I can tomorrow.

"I have full confidence in my ability to produce."

The 29-year-old, who never asked to be traded from Montreal, said the whole season has been trying for the struggling Habs.

"It was disappointing because a lot of us had different expectations for our group," he said. "You want to be a part of winning, you want your team to do better.
