  1. At $500 a "share", you would have to buy 1000 shares to buy that ugly piece of crap Bowfort Towers art project that looks like a scaffold some drunks put together out of junk wood... But I guess the "bright minds" running the city thought that supporting a very wealthy New York artist was a good choice during an economic downturn, perhaps they thought it was needed to go along with all the other expensive pieces of so called "art" the city has felt was a good use of taxpayer dollars over the last few years... We should also be concerned that maybe they figure that new high dollar art center they built should generate several new 'artists' they can give grants to and buy overpriced ugly crap from ...
  2. Good find FF52, you made me laugh... https://www.thebeaverton.com/2017/09/nhl-threatens-move-canucks-calgary-city-doesnt-build-new-stadium/ But maybe we should just exile Nenshi, King and Bettman to Vancouver instead..
  3. Obviously not going to happen now, but still interesting to hear about it from Fleury... from: http://www.msn.com/en-ca/sports/news/marc-andre-fleury-would-have-waived-no-trade-for-the-flames/ar-AArP6Ug?li=AAadgLE&ocid=spartandhp Marc-Andre Fleury can admit now he was preparing for the possibility of becoming a Calgary Flame. He’ll even go as far as to say that had Pittsburgh Penguins GM Jim Rutherford crafted a deal to send Fleury to the Flames at last season’s trade deadline, the 32-year-old goaltender would likely have waived the no-trade clause he has in his contract. “I think so,” said Fleury while in New York for league meetings. “I think Calgary is a great town and a great hockey team too. I think they’ll be very good again this year. But here I am.” In Vegas.
  4. We've lost another great guitarist... RIP Walter Becker... For those who are not familiar, that's Jeff 'Skunk' Baxter (also of Doobie Brothers fame) with the stache wearing the cream colored shirt, and Becker was the dude with the beard and the multi color shirt...
  5. Jagr pulled this off just 5 months ago... He's still got the moves...
  6. It's no worse than what Peeps said about Vancouver...
  7. I am Good luck trying to do as much damage as Lowe and MacTavish did...
  8. Complain all you want, but Brouwer doesn't deserve to be anything more than a 3rd of 4th line player unless by some miracle he actually starts earning his paycheck... If he stays and doesn't step up soon, best thing to do with him is bench him or trade him even if it means retaining a bit of salary or otherwise sweetening the deal... Ferland played well enough on the 1st line for a limited number of games, but also struggled in some games as well... Maybe he can earn the spot to stay on the top line, but maybe he can't... Either way, you should never bet the farm on a maybe without having a really good backup plan... By the way, in case you never noticed, Ferland was a LW, and was moved to the right side out of desperation... Even if Ferland manages to switch over and play well consistently, the Flames still need more help at RW...
  9. Agreed... If the Flames don't pick up Jagr, they need to find another RW with similar skills... Ferland has potential, but is still finding his way... Even if he delivers, the Flames could still use another upgrade at RW... One of the biggest problems at RW is Brouwer... He'd be alright as a 3rd or 4th line RW, but not at $4.5 mil a season... If I remember correctly, he still has 1 more year on a full NTC, then his modified NTC (15 team no trade list) kicks in... If I was Gully I'd call him in for a chat and ask him to waive his NTC with his other option being that if he didn't have a strong camp and preseason, and then start earning his keep on a regular basis, then he could expect to be a healthy scratch like Wideman... Another option would be to buy him out, seems to me another window opens in about a week... Brouwer seems lazy with his effort and soft for his size all too often, and he sets a bad example with his bad habits... If Brouwer ends up staying and actually starts to earn that contract, great... But I wouldn't bet on it...
  10. Funny coincidence... Jagr actually fits the definition for meister...
  11. Jagr is everywhere...
  12. Barkov, Yandle, Ekblad and Huberdeau are probably wondering the same thing... No doubt Jagr has received offers, but even at this stage of his career he will still be able to have more of a choice in his destination than a lot of vets that are 10 years younger... Trying to get close to the $4 mil salary and $1.515 mill incentives contract he had last year was likely an issue for the Panthers, and Jagr will try and get the max deal he can with a team he wants to be a part of... Jagr will pick a team where he feels he has the most chance to succeed and have a good season, and probably will...
  13. Kudos to Gio...
  14. One thing about Jagr is that he still continues to make other good players shine even brighter...
  15. Got this strange feeling hunch that Jagr could end up on the Flames for this season... Might be time to go shopping for a mullet wig...
