  1. I think I could probably count on one hand the number of times the Flames have played a complete, 60 minute game so far this season. All the talk about how they lack skill, talent, youth, etc is BS. All they lack is the DESIRE to show up and play hard from the opening faceoff until the final horn.

      HA, that is just not true. The other team is trying to win as well. Sometimes things don't go your way, but that doesn't mean they weren't trying. Do you play pool or darts? Are you at your best every time you play? When you're not, does that mean you weren't trying? In sports like hockey, it is even more convoluded because the other team is pushing back. Fans of every team in every sport make the same claim: our team doesn't put in 60 minutes every night. But ...

      I'll settle for a full 60 min effort tonight as a start.

  2. Is it just me, or is calling diving AND the supposed infraction simultaneously totally counterintuitive? If you got tripped, you didn't dive; if you dove, you didn't get tripped.

      yea, it's more a call of embellishing than diving.

      Yeah I guess so, but then just call the dive. Nobody will ever stop diving if they know they won't put their team SH. I've literally never seen it called on its own.

      I agree with you HA, and not only that but I think the league should start suspending players for cumulative dives. It affect the integrity of the game

  3. Hey remember those player comparisons that used to go in here? How about Tanev vs Carson? Both guys look poised to play a 5/6 spot this season, is it a fair comparison?

      if bettman's going to pre-arrange the outcomes he should be a little more circumspect. HA.

  5. I miss Peter Loubardias...

      Summer's gonna be long.

  6. is LOL'ing at our 4th line tonight...Mikkelson, Stajan, Staios...what a pile of crap.

  7. All I want for summer is no more Stajan. And Kotalik. And Hagman. Ok and Staios. lol

      Staios is gone either way. UFA.

  8. Congrats to the Nucks and fans on 50 wins...that's pretty epic. I'd be pumped if the Flames hit 50.
  9. I hate Matt Cooke.

      I will cheer when he's out of the NHL forever, this guy should not be allowed to own a pair of skates.

  10. Happy St. Patty's Day Flames fans! Get out to your favourite Irish pub tonight and enjoy a green beer or two while the Flames smash the Avs!

      I've got some Irish blood and I like my beer... But I'll pass on the green brew and have a couple of shots of Absynthe instead... Happy St. Paddy's day... Cheers...

      woot happy St. Patty's day :)

  11. No kidding, what a dbag comment. Grow up you infant.
  12. I'm somewhat freaked out...I have a totally random thought about how Rypien is doing this morning, and it just happens that he speaks for the first time since November? I haven't thought about him once since he took his leave. This is almost as freaky as that kid that controlled the Flames game with his PS3 the other night.
