  1. I was fairly impressed with him in his limited time during last seasons playoff. But I agree, expansion protection, long comeback from a pretty serious injury, and the fact we have enough Dmen are more than enough reason to keep him out of the lineup IMO. That said. If hes in game shape hes likely an upgrade on Stone, Yelesin, or even Kylington.
  2. I'm a big fan of his skill-set and believe he could potentially win a scoring title with a better team. Having watched him quite a bit, it's really plain to see his frustration oftentimes. Have to wonder how long it is before he decides he needs a change of scenery.
  3. So 28 skaters: Forwards: Johnny, Monahan, Lindholm, Backlund, Tkachuk, Mangiapane, Dube, Ryan, Lucic, Bennett, Jankowski, Rinaldo, Rieder. Defense: Giordano, Brodie, Andersson, Hanifin, Hamonic, Gustafsson, Forbort, Kylington, Stone. (The app also lists Yelesin and Valimaki as part of the active roster) Goalies: Rittich, Talbot This leaves 4 spots open for the aces and potentially 2 tenders on top of that if the Flames so choose. Assuming they wouldn't have a need for any more defenseman it will be 4 extra forwards on the roster. I'm thinking Quine, Czarnik, Robinson, and Gawdin most likely with outside chance Phillips gets the call up.
  4. The problem with all this is that at this point the players have been off for months. Even with 3 weeks of camp the playoffs would likely be a gong show because the players are no longer in season-end form. Also, with the proposition of the condensed schedule next season (no bye-week, no allstar break) the players will be so gassed by 2021 playoffs that tournament would again not be the type of playoffs anyone is used to. Just my opinion though, and I totally understand the money factor.
  5. I think we need to hang onto Brodie. He makes mistakes sometimes, but when hes on his game he is honestly pretty underrated as far as importance to the team is concerned. I agree though 6.5 is too much.
  6. Interesting. I used to shoot ambidextrous when I played depending on the position I was in. ( Mostly center, but I played all three forward positions ) Never seen it at the pro level though.
  7. That Tkachuk goal always puts a smile on my face. Absolutely filthy.
  8. Didn't know where to post this and it's not virus-related but Oilers forward Colby Cave has died at age 25. Condolences to his family.
  9. Just here to wish everyone safety during this troubling time. Stay healthy everyone!
  10. https://www.matchsticksandgasoline.com/2020/3/5/21165191/heating-up-the-rise-of-hanirazz Not sure if anyone has posted this yet, but I found it an interesting read. Definitely have decisions to make as far as pairings go when we get Hamonic back in the lineup.
  11. Glad to see Talbot getting the start after the SO in Sunrise. GFG!
  12. Mercer could be a solid pick. Mangiapane is one of the few players that brings it every night. We need more like him.
  13. The only thing the Baertschi pick was good for was that it got us Andersson.
  14. Indeed this season has been a tale of two Backlunds.. The player who couldn't hit the broadside of a barn. And the more recent selke-caliber Backlund.
  15. I'd go with him again next game. But I'm not an NHL head coach, therefore I must not know what I'm talking about.
