  1. Past hour
  2. It's hard to say mentor. His NHL experience is limited. Although he's been at the pro level for 5 years between the SEL and the K. I hope this pick up works for both sides. Hopefully we're a better fit for him than LA was. It happens. Again, this add at trade deadline looks like he was definitely a target. Gives me a lot of faith in the homework from the org. Say what you want about Burke, but he had an exit strategy and left us with a team builder. No apologies needed, he got us the GM we needed. Nice to watch BT growing into full autonomy and putting his stamp on this team.
  3. I'm sure he will, but is there a rule saying Neal has to draw back in? Is he a better offensive option than anyone he replaces? Not based on this season. Is he a faster than anyone he would replace? No. Kill penalties? No. Bigger/stronger? Sure. Here's hoping he turns his season around.
  4. The 4th line is rolling, but you can also say that Mangiapane and Ryan can play with whomever. Czarnik is comfortable playing LW. I think that Mangiapane-Ryan-Neal is probably your best best for a suitable third line. Mangiapane creates. Ryan is a RHS to feed Neal. Both Mange and Neal are shooters. Leaves you a 4th line of Czarnik-Janko-Hathaway, which is not a huge change. They have played together in different combos. The other option is Janko switching with Ryan. Has had some success with Neal. I'm not mentioning Bennett because I think he's injured more than what he was telling the coach and trainers. I think it goes back to that hit on the boards.
  5. There's a very good chance we re-sign Fanta. Under-appreciated by LA perhaps. Plays big, steady, excellent mentor for rookies. Would like to see if he's also effectove on RD, since it's about our only "weakness" on D. BT loves to make moves before the draft, so there's a good chance we see a move then, using someone like Brodie. Gio is the ultimate mentor for our D. He shows them what it takes to be a great player. Fitness. Attention to detail. Showing up for practice ready.
  6. Breadman wanted to go to the "Big City" back then, contender was secondary. He was a bit put off that he got traded to Columbus. If there was a way we could sign him this summer, that would be great.
  7. Good on Carts. I didn't see it until you mentioned it. So that makes up Ripley. She was hot way back then. We shall destroy them.
  8. I believe Neal as played both sides so with Bennett out it could be way to get him in there. I would prefer Ryan at C over Jankowski
  9. You can always trade players
  10. Today
  11. But then we'd have to hear, "Datsyukian" a lot more often. lol But to be fair, in the playoffs, this one can be hard to describe...
  12. It was inspired by the movie Alien...
  13. Maybe Datsyuk wants a chance to play with
  14. I love what he said in his first Fan interview, somewhere along the lines of, “hockey is hockey anywhere you play.” My guess is, get the puck, pass it up ice to the nearest outlet and go.
  15. Mid we remain a contender, high profile players may want to sign in Calgary though. Very rare but like Panarin in Chicago? Probably not though. It is the hope that players want a chance at a Cup.
  16. I'm surprised you didn't turn the Nucks logo into a toilet seat. Then again, I can't decipher what change you made to their logo. Exposed whale blubber?
  17. Excellent point cross. We no longer look like a team that has roster spots to offer, which is a beautiful thing. These "high profile" college free agents are typically so overrated that they seldom become solid answers. But they are in the enviable position of having teams play off of each other. Spencer Foo anyone? Philp is a good zero risk move sans hype.
  18. Considering th team has been stripped to the core, there not much there to be positive as a fan. Not even a chance at Hughes. Traded away Duchene, Stone, Dzingle, Karlsson for what you see here, plus magic beans for the future. Sure seems like a cheapskate owner that doesn;t want to pay for any talent.
  19. I agree. Fantenberg has been a really good add as a stay at home D man. Excellent research by the Flames in bringing him in. He's very steady in our zone. Considering we typically see adjustment periods with players on new teams, he seems to have just slid right in. Our D depth is unreal. I wonder if we use someone at the draft table in a trade?
  20. This one goes way back... I'm hoping that the Flames smash the Nucks like a Fireball...
  22. VS Mar. 23rd 8pm ROGERS ARENA
  23. I'll put one together for tonight's game against the Nucks...
  24. I honestly don't know but we didn't sign him for his offence. Both Brodie and Hanifin aren't noted for their defense. Fantenberg topped the pk minutes against the devils. I just find it interesting
