    Gentlemen ( ladies if there are any here). Last night was a turning point for me, it will be my final watched game. The aggitaiton frustration, emotional lows for years will now end. Have I been hard on this club, negative yes, but it has been justifiable. Been a Flames fan longer than some of you have been alive, but its time. For the past god for as I can remember I would schedele my nights around watching this team play, if there was a game on i watched it. When the forum was down for me was a hard adjustment. I read posts from eveyone that like me is a die hard fan of the Flames. It was a great day when it came back on line, didn't realize how much I missed the comments and individauls who wrote them. I just wanted for what its worth, to thank those who have taken the time, effort and energy for these forums. The conversations comments and readings have been a huge part of my daily routine. I am a competive person and watching this is extremely frustrating to me. When I am more agitated than the players and staff, its time. This organization is a shell of what it once was, I truely hope that one day it finds it self again. As the sabres fan stated so perfectly, If I had a cardboard cut out in the stands I would remove it to not make them suffer watching this. This is a hard chapter to close, been a routne for years this forum has meant alot to me. I truely and sincerely wish everyone nothing but the best and once again thank everyone for their efforts.

    I trust that was bad typing and you did not intentionally say lames. That is for other fans to slander the team with and never our own supporters however badly they are playing.

    So picking on a goalie's stats, which were incredible up until his last 2 games, and performance in said 2 games may have been altered because of injury,. Not at all surprised, when you have it out for him to begin with.

    Didn't want to bury this in other threads. Mangiapane is becoming one of the best play drivers in the league and one of the most important pieces the Flames have. What a career this guys is starting to carve out for himself after being over looked in a draft and then taken in the 6th round. one of the better Flames draft picks in the last decade. I'm not sure his point total will ever get him enough credit for some fans, but he is turning into one of the Flames best all around players. He should be viewed as part of the the core moving forward.

    This team has a history of putting in inconsistent efforts, but this feels different this year. To me this team seems almost confused or unsure of what they are supposed to be doing out on the ice. I do think this team has a leadership issue with their core, but I think Ward is exacerbating these issues. Scratching guys and not communicating why they are getting scratched (Bennett), scratching guys in the midst of a 3 game winning streak (Nesterov), scratching guys while their game is starting to get on track (Leivo). It appears as if this team plays a different system every other game. Ward might be the worst coach I have seen coach the Flames. I know a change isn't happening any time soon, which is the most worrisome part of this.

    I don’t like being pessimistic but if we’re being honest the Flames are better off keeping Ward and just tanking the year. you are not going to trade you way out of this and unfortunately lottery picks is about the only way you can add high end talent.

    At the time that I write this reply, they are outshooting the Oilers 27 - 12. They are outplaying them most shifts. It's a little bit sloppy, but it's a welcome change. This is gut check time. You know that they're being feasted upon by the best player in the world, right? He's got four points on their four goals. So, no, I don't believe in this team right now, but I'm a little bit more invested in this game because it doesn't feel like they're going to roll over. I'll give them that chance. I mean, I've sat through some terrible games this year. Love.

    Rinaldo played 2:04 and Froese played 4:50, why are in they in the lineup if they can't play a regular shift. We won that game with 9 forwards and Nordstrom. It was still a baffling coaching decision.

    Missed this one but just watched the highlights, and by all accounts on social media, it seems like we finally got that solid 60 effort. Huge game for multiple players, as Monahan and Tkachuk get some much needed goals and Rittich with the statement shutout. Good stuff. I hope we play much the same way in the next one as the Leafs are going to come out hard. And for God's sake Ward keep Benny on that top line! Go Flames!

    Lol that seems like the type of thing BT would do🤦 This will definitely heat up the Bennett trade talks...for gods sake, PUT BENNETT with Tachuck already!!!!!!! move Lindholm back to RW where he has proven chemistry with JG and Mony... FFS yes they got burned last year with having only 1 line but dividing the line into two parts is still NOT the answer, the answer is find a Ctr (BENNETT) for Tachuck and then do what you must to get a RW for them (short term Dube) Dear god this is not rocket science...then you have line with Manji/Backlund/Simon or Levino or whoever. then the 4th would be Obviously Lucic and whoever and whoever till Ryan is back then it’s Lucic/Ryan/ whoever man it’s really not that tough Ward...get a grip! im not sure why Cgy insists on ruining good players like Bennett? at this relate them may as well trade Lindholm and Valimaki for Neil...it’s just about as sensible as what they are doing now on and signing Rino and Stone..what a waste of 1.4 mil (I think they combine for)

    Tough night for Monahan. That’s a bad turnover. but this is a deserved result. Canucks were the better and hungrier team for basically the entire game. I hope Ward can watch the film and learn that this is not the way this team is destined to play and stop with this passive defend the middle garbage. Damn I really wish the flame had hired an actual head coach.

    A few things: - I’d like Ward to be consistent with the current line formation, and give them some time together to develop some chemistry. - That said, if the Lindholm line continues on the same trajectory, my immediate swap is Mangiapane and Dube. Mange’s play driving metrics is the shot in the arm that line could use. Mange already has shown chemistry with Chucky. Dube seemingly took his shackles off in the playoffs last year and grew in confidence 10-fold playing with Looch, with Backlund being the difference at Center. - Benny is still finding his way on the top line, but he gives JH an option for a pass. How many times have we seen JH in the offensive zone alone, do a button hook, and a risky play/pass follows at the offensive blue line? Benny can skate, and will drive to the net, while Mony continues to develop his D zone play. I think it’s a matter of time before that line starts clicking. - I did like MP’s line formations above if these line configurations need a different look. If Lindy goes back to RW on the top line, they should try Benny at C with Chucky and Mange/Dube, leaving Backlund with Looch/Leivo/Mange/Dube for wingers. Now, some coming clean: - Tanev. I jumped the gun on you and I was wrong. You have not only exceeded my expectations, but you’ve now completely changed my tune about trading away Hanifin as well. I’m also protecting you in the Kraken draft. Bravo! - Looch. I remember my initial response to the trade wasn’t in your favour. I’ve since become a big supporter of you on these boards. My initial assessment was wrong, and I’m super happy to have your presence on this team. You keep doing you! - Backlund. I called you out a few games ago, and caved and joined those who’ve wanted to trade you for some time. I should’ve bit my tongue for a while longer. I’m happy to see you’ve found your game again. Don’t let it slip because we need that kind of play from you! Go 🔥 go!

    I doubt Edmonton loves that trade now. Lucic deserves a ton of credit for fighting through the adversity. I know I prefer him over Neal.

    The team had a look of defeat to me last game, no drive, no jump, no battle...going through the motions. Could this be a reaction to Bennett's scratch? By all accounts he is a popular teammate and the play of the rest of the team could have been a collective F you to Wardo for the benching. Very poor asset management once again when it comes to Bennett. If someone is sitting, there are several player that would be top of mind for me before him, Lucic being the first.
