  1. I said the article was interesting... and the sarcasm was intended... I didn't say I agreed with it... Parts of it made good sense, but other parts were definitely cause for concern... re bolded:... As I have mentioned before,,, Sometimes Wardo fails to see problems that should be obvious... and what is even worse, is even after he thinks about it over a substantial period of time, he intentionally repeats the mistakes...
  2. Interesting article on Wardo's coaching philosophy... https://www.sportsnet.ca/nhl/article/flames-ward-looks-lightning-blueprint-revamp-calgarys-gameplan/
  3. Sometimes it seems that Wardo is a slow learner... I hope I'm wrong and he starts to show he can start to learn from his mistakes more quickly than he has so far, but that said I also have my doubts that he will last until the end of his contract if he continues to make mistakes by making poor decisions on basic things that should have been covered in coaching 101 class...

    That's right, Gretz was 20 at the time, and dating Moss's sister Vikki... and whenever we saw him throughout all those years, Joey Moss looked like he loved every minute he spent with both the Oil and the Eskimos...

    Oilers

    The enthusiasm Joey Moss had while working for the Eskimos and Oilers was remarkable, and no one sang the Canadian anthem louder or prouder... RIP Joey Moss...
  6. I like the Nesterov signing... Low risk move to pick him up at league minimum, and it looks like he could step in on the 3rd pair D, and also play either side... and he has a bit of a mean streak as a bonus... 27 years old, 5'11" and 198 lbs... So not a really big guy but but built pretty solid, and not a lightweight either... Let's see what he can bring... If he can take a spot, great... But either way he could come in handy as a call up if he doesn't make the cut...
  7. ... Couldn't help but notice that the title of the second video is from a Lightning vs Red Winds game... Must have missed the news, did a bunch of angry birds convince Detroit to change the name from the Red Wings because it offended the angry bird that looks like a cardinal?... It won't do any good, because it won't be long until Aeolus the Greek god of wind files a lawsuit... This is getting out of hand... Oops... Now the angry birds will be upset again... Because they don't have hands...
  8. I agree, Dadonov would be a good addition... and it's good to see you back on the boards conundrumed...
  9. Horse Satoshi... But you are right on one thing, Hamonic was out... By his own personal choice, he chose not to show up... and I won't miss him either... So either way that we all might try and look at it, Hamonic still needed to be replaced...
  10. Between the lack of the expected and typical increase of the the cap and no revenue from selling seats, the league is in uncharted waters... It was a whole different world for free agency this year... I am still hoping that a couple of those dominos fall and end up playing for the Flames this season...
  11. Different styles... Different strengths and weaknesses... They let a Chevy truck go and and got a Dodge instead... Try and think of Tanev as another piece of the puzzle with a different purpose and not a replacement for Brodie... Hamonic is gone, and I think that is for the best... Maybe we can try and give Treliving a little time to see what he might park in the driveway next... If it doesn't work out, I'll be as pissed off as anyone else. but it's still to early for the pitchfork and scythe mob...
  12. I know that phoenix, it was more just me taking the opportunity of the subject coming up to clarify my opinion... I suppose I could have added that to that post in the first place... I also think that Brodie was gone back East even if the Flames had the same offer on the table, and I know a lot of people don't see it that way...
  13. Just to clarify, I was not trying to say that we should have kept Brodie my when I put up the bar charts... My intention was just to use them to show the strengths and weaknesses of the players... Some people will just look at the charts and see red and blue, without really looking into what all of that means, but there are pros and cons with both players... What I think happened is Brodie got the chance to move back East closer home where he and his wife grew up together with a pretty good contract, and took it... If so, it is better he did, rather than stay with the Flames and have regrets for not taking that chance... None of us knows what his wife had to say about it, but I think it's a pretty safe bet what her vote was... Tanev is not a big change when it comes to more basic stats, 2 less goals last season, and 3 more assists... and he plays a different style... He is a Flame now, and I will be cheering him on and hoping he has a positive impact with the team... Seems to me that Treliving felt Tanev was a piece he needed for the puzzle, and I don't think he's done yet either... So I will wait and see what the roster looks like to start the season... Then I will wait until we are far enough into the season to be able to properly assess the moves Treliving made... So I'm sure I will have some things to say about individual moves that will likely come up in the next while, but I will reserve judgement on what Treliving is doing to put the team together, until get to that place far enough down the road to be able to see how things look...
  14. Just another way to compare some stats with a tool...
