  1. What is the best they can pick in the first round if they fall out in the peg series? If they don't win the first over all what will the pick be any one know?
  2. Why would any one even think we would get the first over all even if we lost to winterpeg there is no way in heck the NHL would allow the Flames to get the pick
  3. Would Trouba for Hamonic be a good trade I know Trouba is due for a new contract but he is RFA and Hammy would be closer to Family ? Would a swap would even get it done.
  4. So from what you are saying might as well cancel tickets for remainder of the last season or 2 unless your willing to support a team who is going to use and abuse us for the remainder of there time in this City? If thats the case then lets get together and demand the management get to the table or we will stop now and let them scramble to move there precious team now or perhaps that might just open up a can of worms and force them to show there hand or I should say there intentions
  5. I know right now it is a game of Chicken but if all fails and the Ego's of both sides don't bend and the Flames deside to move that would be a huge transition. There is no guarantee the team will succeeded where ever they go will also have to start a new name and jersey and if they go states way with the way most teams out there are struggling they could lose it all for yrs to come. Knowing that and the high risk from moving from a City that supports them a 100% as far as going to games buying there product to me that would be crazy. Now saying that do they know something we don't will they risk perhaps going to eastern Canada like maybe another Toronto team or perhaps Quebec ? To me those would be the only viable sites you could almost guaranty a successful Franchise. I hate how the Management is putting a gun to our head I think it stinks even though it is just a possible empty threat but if it is not and they not saying anything till they have something in place due to losing a fan base prematurely. Because if we knew thy were leaving in the very near future no one or almost no one would attend another game. That would be a scum thing to do Just saying.
  6. Trade Gio for who Ovi Crosby Matthews ?Those are the only type of player I would consider trading for Because I believe he is worth all that.
  7. Don't most of those trades fail miserably ? Seems when ever a team is after a hot commodity that commodity usually turns out to bit that team in the rear end. Very seldom does a trade of a saute after player turn out in the favour of the buyer. I know it has happened but seems to me for the most it is a lost cause.
  8. Yes forgot about Shore he will probably start the season at Centre good point
  9. So what then who do we put on the 4th line some one has to go there Lazar?
  10. Hey J he is a Flame now stop with the negativity he will be a top player in the pro's and perhaps not in the NHL right away but he will kill it in the a's and the Flames will have no choice but bring him up.
  11. I don't think they will put Bennett in the C position this coming yr so I believe there is a spot for Dube we need 4 Cntrs . I know Peters did say something about Bennett and his centre position but I could see Dube coming in and taking that spot. I know every yr I think a rookie can come in and take a spot most of the time I get flake because PPL on here think the kids need to go to A's but I say why if they can play at the NHL: level and don't hurt the team why not? I think dube is that player he is a 200 ft player a Nystrom type player I hope he can bring it would be nice to see another draft pick show up. I can dream
  12. Wouldn't that be like asking us to trade away Hamilton same amount of points and close to the same age just 2 yrs ? You think they would actually do that ? would be great but can't see them going for it.
  13. I know we need help and it takes a good player to get one but Hamilton ? Really he is will be a top player on this team for yrs that to me was the best trade BT has done. Now every one wants to move him to get better I think we would regress if we did that move Hamonic or TJ or one of the kids but leave well enough alone when it comes to Hamilton please.
  14. Cross Didn't i just say same thing or along same lines?
  15. Sounds like Simmons is at the end of his contract so even if we did trade for him there's no guaranties he would resign? To me it would be a crazy trade plus why would we get rid of one of our best D men and he is only going to get better he's still a baby. Ok so perhaps he is going to be going into his prime in another few yrs but he will be renewing his contract by then.
  16. Here is a trade that is going around in flyers land about Hamilton interesting but I hope not https://www.letsgoflyers.net/articles/wayne-simmonds-to-the-calgary-flames/ I don't know if this has been circulated
  17. We have a new Coach how about we leave it alone for the first 20 games if still nothing then perhaps time to make a move. I know lots will say will be to late by then because know one will want him because he has not made any advancement in the right direction and perhaps so but right now I would be scared to see what we would get in return due to lack of production. He is a very good third liner being 4th over all we should be looking at top 1-2 C but not so. When we first got him and Dris was sent back to minors and Bennett was killing it in the playoffs I was so happy now the tables have turned and now not so much. So hoping new coach will change everything. I can dream;)
  18. Funny I'm never right about anything and I know BB wasn't fired but he is leaving and I think it was a long ime coming I don't think he has been much help in the last few yrs. Of course I have no idea what he has accomplished swispering in BTs ear but there is a few dollars saved in the grand scheme of things
  19. I will never understand trading or talk of trading away a top D for a forward especially Hamilton we just gave up a slue of picks for him and he was a top scorer on the back end and were thinking of moving him Confused? First of all we have never come out on top with TO in a trade we fail miserably every time second I wouldn't trust this Management to make a trade That would make us better in the long run. I would love to get rid of a few players that BT has signed but no one would take them unless we paid them. I would like to see how the kids do next yr before I start making moves only possible thing I might do is trade for a 1st or 2nd round drat pick but who would we lose to do so and would that cost us in the long run again I don't trust the so called brain trust we have and I still think BB should pack his bags he has done nothing that I can see other than make silly or bold statements and the truculence thingy has failed miserably Brouwer Carol and Smith has proved that feaster got dumped for less.
  20. Flames did not threaten to leave. That is just a reality if you can't continue to operate out of an aging building and you can;t get any traction on building a new one. They might not have said it in so many words but the connotation was there as soon as they said it that is exactly what I toke out of it and I bet I'm not the only one.
  21. Listening to Peters on tim&sid I was disappointed to find that Brouwer was in Hawaii sipping mi ties after such an abysmal season. I guess that is why he played so crappy didn't want to go into playoffs and not be able to enjoy his new found riches. That is one player I know GG tried on almost every line with no luck at first in the preseason him and Bennett had some chemistry but that failed miserably when the season started. I guess he knew then he didn't want to go into the playoffs LOL.
  22. Maybe I miss read but I did see something about the venue being moved between Cgy and Edm perhaps there thinking on moving the hockey games there unsure how that helps us but I'm pretty sure I read that some where?
  23. I know Bennett does not put up the numbers we would like and sometimes he takes dumb penalties but he plays hard on the boards does not shy away from the tuff style of play I think if Peters is going to start playing with the lines and see what he can do with these kids I think perhaps Bennett will benefit from him. I would really like to see Bennett with MrT and perhaps Janks or mang maybe even Lazar we have the players we need to figure out how to utilize them and get the best out of them. It doesn't seem like we have much success in trades or free agents I would love to see upgrades but at what cost and will we be happy with whom ever we get?
  24. If BP is same type Coach as GG whats the point Im sure after what happened this yr Im sure GG would have changed his way of dealing with players and line movement. Change just for change doesn't really help this team I don't think was hoping for and upgrade not a push. Now who would an upgrade be with my knowledge I can't say for sure but with everyone say that BP is a GG clone and with little upgrade due to his lack of getting Hurricanes any further than GG doesn't make sense to me. Colour me confussed?
  25. You don't really think Mon would do a BT move I can't see it after what BT has don't no team would ever make that mistake again LOL. Feaster got fired for same type of bone head moves I say time to axe him as well.
