Michael Cammalleri doesn’t have many bad days.

The affable Calgary Flames forward can usually be seen with a smile — a noticeably more toothless one thanks to an errant puck to the chiclets a few days prior to camp kicking off.

But he had reason to flash the … er gums Tuesday after learning he had a new winger on his line.

“It’s Jarome Iginla,” Cammalleri said when asked about the new line combinations at Tuesday’s practice at the Corral.

“What can I say? I don’t want to play with him?”

That would be silly talk.

Especially considering how well the duo fared a few years back when Cammalleri sniped 39 goals and 82 points in the 2008-09 NHL season playing on the opposite side of the captain.

When Cammalleri was re-acquired by the Flames from the Montreal Canadiens last January, many thought a reunion with Iginla was a no-brainer.
