  1. I am Good luck trying to do as much damage as Lowe and MacTavish did...
  2. 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...
  3. 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...
  4. Funny coincidence... Jagr actually fits the definition for meister...
  5. Jagr is everywhere...
  6. 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...
  7. Kudos to Gio...
  8. One thing about Jagr is that he still continues to make other good players shine even brighter...
  9. 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...
  10. Starting to look like getting Draisaitl signed to a new deal could take a while...
  11. Too bad Jussi Jokinen signed with the Oil... Cheap at 1.1 Mil too...
  12. Happy Birthday!

      Thanks Flyerfan52...   :)

  13. Maybe I'm wrong and he has more upside than I think, but if I was looking to sum up my thoughts on Pirri in one word it would be 'meh'... Not the end of the world if they added Pirri to the lineup, but I would rather they aimed higher...
  14. Jussi could be a decent addition if it was in the right price range... Another possible line combo could to put Jokinen with Bennett and Versteeg to balance it out... Jussi can play a more defensively responsible style than Bennett or Versteeg, and could compliment their offensive skills and add some stability
  15. Didn't forget at all... Even having an offer sheet on the table and unsigned is leverage for Draisaitl and his agent... They go to Chiarelli and say that they have received an offer for say 9.1 mil for a year but haven't signed off on it... Chia says well that is only a one year deal, and he still wants to work out a multi year deal with Draisaitl... It still drives the price up for the Oilers (Chia still matches in that range) and the poison pill still has the intended affect... Draisaitl saves face and doesn't crap in his food dish... Don't forget that Draisaitl and his agent are already not happy with how they feel that Chia peed in the water bowl due to how they feel Draisaitl was handle prior to his breakout... and that is why they haven't drank the water and signed... They want the money to buy a nice new dish... If a team is serious about wanting to sign and keep Draisaitl, I think it would take more $ and term for Chia not to match... But I think there is a threshold where it could happen, and also a couple of teams that might consider it...
