  1. Many of us here have noticed that it has been quite a while since Flyerfan52 has made a post... It is with a heavy heart that I tell you that Flyerfan52 passed away peacefully while at home the day after his last post... His name was Larry... A lot of us often called him FF52... and I will do that here... After months of some of us trying to contact FF52, yesterday Pyro managed to find an obituary that he thought might be his and passed it along to me... I knew Larry's full name and quite a bit of of personal info, so as soon as I read it, I knew it was his, and I needed a day to digest the sad news and make this post... I thought that I would post it here in the 'Flames Talk' section where he made most of his posts, as he deserved to have it here, and not tucked away in the 'General Discussions' section where many might not see it... As you know, FF52 was a true fan of the game of hockey, and we were fortunate to have him share his tremendous insight of the game, as he was as close to a human encyclopedia of hockey as I have ever known... Larry was also a very kindhearted and soft spoken soul and he also had a great sense of humour and wit... His posts would sometimes make me see a different angle on something hockey related, and he often brightened my day with his good sense of humour... We have lost a good fiend to the Flames Message Boards... Please feel free to post any fond memories of Flyerfan52 in this thread, and I know many of us have them... One more thing... When the Flames host the Rangers Friday night, raise a fresh cold beer and say "To Flyerfan52, SKOL!!!", have a drink and then say "GO FLAMES!!!... the Rangers suck", and have another... He would have liked that, and somewhere in heaven above, he will be smiling... FF52 hated the Rags...
  2. VS Mar. 23rd 8pm ROGERS ARENA
  3. It was inspired by the movie Alien...
  4. VS Mar. 21st 7pm Home at the Dome
  5. This one goes way back... I'm hoping that the Flames smash the Nucks like a Fireball...
  6. I'll put one together for tonight's game against the Nucks...
  7. Just make your pick(s), and make a post with what game(s) you wand to do a GDT for... Include the name of the opposition and the date... Hopefully we see some of the people that have done them before do some more games, and let's see some new blood take a shot at it too... Feel free to be creative and make it using your own style or go ahead and copy the format you like that you've seen someone else do... Whatever works for you... If you have never made a GDT before, take a look at the thread pinned right below this on called "Game Day Thread Creation 101"... DirtyDeeds made that thread a while back, and explained in detail how to do it so it would make it easier for anyone who wanted to make one... If you want to make a GDT and have any questions after reading Deeds thread, there are a few of us around that can answer any questions you might have, so just ask someone who has made one before... Once you have made one, the next one gets easier, so go ahead and give it a shot...

  8. Brady smiling on the bench at Mathew's goal... Gotta like that...
  9. VS Mar. 19th 7pm Home at the Dome
  10. Smith might have the experience, and he might just pull it together and get in the groove... But it's also hard to ignore Smith's .896 SV% and 2.88 GAA vs Rittich's .911 SV% and 2.63 GAA.. Hard to say what the plan for the playoffs is at this point... and I think you are right and we will see both goalies pretty much equally, at least to close out the regular season... Smith could step up and be the close the door goaltender that we all saw for years... He certainly should have the incentive, as he is running out of time to do that... But we have also all seen the decline in his performance, particularly since he was injured last season... Rittich just might also step up and steal the spot... It certainly wouldn't be the first time the younger goaltender of the two on the team did that heading into the playoffs... Let's hope one of them does seize upon the opportunity at hand... If one of them doesn't really shine, we'll see both goalies get their turns...
  11. Looks like Smith gets the start... I had guessed Rittich...
  12. Best indication for lines so far...
