  1. Can anyone explain to me why we are still posting in this thread and feeding this idiot troll? People, cut the crap, already.
  2. I was just LOL'ing by the way, guys. Obviously, not all Canuck fans are laser-painting butt-pimples. Though, even my Canuck friends turn into D-Bags during Flames/Nucks games. Got to the point where I refused to talk to them on gameday.
  3. Here's a new Stat: Using laser to blind opposing players: Canucks - 1 Flames - 0 lulz
  4. What was really dramatic was your impeccable timing.
  5. DL44, the Flames' PK as 11th a week ago. There is no reason to think it can't be improved upon.
  6. If a subpar PK is the biggest concern we're facing at this point in the season, I consider myself very happy. I have no doubt in my mind the PK will get better.
  7. Yeah, it probably would have been 1st if we didn't use Aucoin like we did. I already told you this, but Aucoin was more useful on the PP than the PK. He had a pretty wicked shot. As for the defensive stats, I'm not overly surprised. I clearly recall stating that their would be growing pains. Looks like I was right. I'm not happy with the numbers, but I'm confident they will come down. We've been taking too many penalties, and far too many 5 on 3 penalties. As for the offensive numbers, I'm not surprised. I went through the numbers and knew the Flames wouldn't be too hard pressed for scoring. They're higher than I anticipated, but I could only laugh at all the "experts" saying the Flames wouldn't be able to score. I think the biggest and most pleasant surprise of the young season is Kiprusoff.
  8. Did anybody see Luongo's dive tonight against the Sharks? He's in mid season form!
  9. Well, it may have been lost on you, but my remark was also a little tongue in cheek and sarcastic. You're sounding a little "childish and petty" yourself. Personally, I thought things were going well, and I'm not going to change my mind: I believe the Flames will improve dramatically defensively this season. There might be growing pains along the way, but you'll have to colour me very disappointed if at season's end the Flames were not much improved. Nearly every move Sutter made this off season was to bolster all defensive aspects of the Flames' game from the coaches right down to the players. Anyway, good debating with you. Was fun while it lasted.
  10. It's true, DL44, the Flames haven't played a game yet. It's funny that you're allowed to predict that the Flames' defensive statistics won't improve over last years, yet Flames fans aren't allowed to predict they will improve. Stick to the Canucks, buddy.

  12. [quote name='DL44 wrote: Codes'] And if you think that B. Sutter is going to coach anything like Keenan, then...I don't know what to say. Aucoin is an elite Pker... Aucoin is the greatest PK asset the Flames have... and now Sutter is gonna coach like Keenan... jeez. So much for having a logical conversation... anything other opinion people which to credit me with.... DL44, don't be dumb. Go back and read what you wrote. Everything I have mentioned was implicated in how your wrote your argument. 1) The Flames' PK will suffer because Aucoin is gone. Reads: Aucoin was one of the Flames' most important PKers. 2) You don't believe the Flames' defensive statistics will change much. Reads: the coaching philosophy and systems won't change, or will have little effect. Which is complete BS. Yeah, yeah, it's your opinion, and I told you I completely disagree with it. Yes, Aucoin was a big part of our PK. Your higher class defensemen tend to get more time on the PK. But, it's silly to think that the Flames' PK is suddenly in trouble because he's not part of it, especially since he was replaced with Bouwmeester. Keenan also poorly managed his players. It was a common complaint around here that he played certain players too much; one of these players was Aucoin. He's getting old, and he's getting to be too slow out there to be as effective as he was earlier in his career. Not to mention, someone had to pick up the slack on the PK when you're all of sudden down Giordanno, Sarich and Regehr. I guess you're actually right: he was the Flames most elite PKer at that point. So really, I don't get why your complaining. You bring up a point, and I either support it, or not, providing reasons as to why. That's how you debate. Seems perfectly logical to me. Ace, no-one played very well at the Last Olympics. The point stands: Regehr invited twice: Mitchell zero. Anyway, I don't want to get involved in the Mitchell vs Regehr debate. Regehr is my favourite player, and I'm biased. However, I also like Mitchell, and he is the one Canuck I would love as a Flame. But in all honesty, if Mitchell was so similar in skill to Regehr, then you wouldn't be seeing such disparity between the two in the eyes of hockey experts.
  13. I completely disagree, DL44. Stats are fun and all, but don't tell the entire story. For instance, I'm not knocking Aucoin's skill; I liked him a lot as a Flame. But, it is nonsensical to believe that at this point in his career he is going to be better than Bouwmeester for the Flames. I can't fathom how you figure that Bouwmeester might not fill the gap left by Aucoin's departure... And if you think that B. Sutter is going to coach anything like Keenan, then...I don't know what to say. Don, I'm not power hungry; control over my sig is good enough.
