  1. It has nothing to do with the fans priorities. The Owners have always supported a rebuild with one caveat. Make the playoffs at all costs. This is the reason we are where we are. Management is free to take the team through a rebuild with full budget as long as Flames make the playoffs. BT made the choices he did because he saw progress. He did basically nothing at trade deadline because the team he has assembled performed beyond just about everyone's expectations during the regular season. BT did not see the needed changes. He is a hands on guy that doesn't hear/see the problems until after the results. Hindsight is 50/50 after the fact. I agree wih JJ on most of his points. We don't developed goalies and cling to our goalie coach and his methods like he was a god(guru according to George Johnson). BT Sticks with the status quo. He could have had Fleury.. He passed at the asking price... BT is a budget GM. too frugal to buy a competant long term goalie so we wander in the desert looking for a rookie or bargain to step up. We need a bigger stronger #1center that will bump all our centers down. Until we are ready to move on from the 3M line I don't see our top 6 improving much. BT will tweak it however. Neal was supposed to be that for 1st line RW. I disagree with JJ on the D however. All our D prospects that were given a chance stepped up this season. They are young and need more time is all. I just don't see a need to break down the D. We gave up Hamilton and tried Brodie back in his old spot on right side top D. We can move him down the pairings but he has not responded well to that solution in the past. I am of the opinion we need a top line center and a top 6 RW. We need to find and pay for a true #1 goalie. Has to be now and before next expansion draft. Then we need to tweak the D. Anyone who plays with Gio excels and looks better. Our youth is not ready for top 4 yet. There is more but this is good place to start.
  2. Go Flames !!! Kick some Hash Rate!!!
  3. Someone needs to put a shoulder square in the Av's #19 chest and bring him back to earth. DD
  4. And the Sens proceed to beat the Oilers in overtime...
  5. Rest in peace FF52. We were two of a few who shared a love for good tough defensive hockey. I'll miss his posts. It was obvious his love for his 3 teams. I will retire his chair and fridge on the bandwagon bus. Everyone raise a beer for a true Flames fan if you haven't already
  6. You can't just up and terminate a contract. Maybe he did something that breaks the rules.. (ie: constantly caught breaking drug policy), beats his wife or something else serious.
  7. We must be winning the faceoff battle.
  8. We need more body checks and less stick checks. Hitchcock smothering style of play is so boring to watch
  9. Go Flames !!! Make sure to give Carty some +1 love for his work.
  10. Quebec has an empty new Arena and is still waiting. Maybe they can get one of the weaker Franchises from the east instead.
  11. Top of our division and games at hand.. WTG Flames
  12. I don't think Schenn is an upgrade to Backs.. He would likely be slotted 3rd line center...

  14. We don't know much. Sigalet worked his way up from Heat. Read somewhere he was hard worker. He is a feel good story with his health battles but don't know if that figures into it or not. My contention is if he was "all that" good he would have some success stories. Something... the closest thing to success I can see from past is turning Ramo around when he was sent down through waivers and bought back up..
