  1. If things get chippy, i hope Lucic goes over and pummels Draisaitl, takes the two game suspension and have to hear oilers fans suddently say engaging a guy not wanting to fight is a cardinal sin.
  2. To Toronto Giordano Bennett To Calgary Rielly Kapanen Gio is our leader and best player most nights and is definately a blow to lose. Toronto needs defense and a gritty centre. We absorb the injury hit on Rielly for 8 weeks. With Gio having his best season last year this trade makes toronto better now and for the 2 years left on his contract. Thoughts?
  3. I believe JC to be a good backup on a good contract locked in. DR is not a cap dump but its a bottom forward with a cap hit of 3 million next year. Lastly the second round pick is the cost of trade deadline trades. As i said. Its not a trade that suddently puts us into cup conversation but i does makes us better for future growth and allows us to still make a bigger move. Personally i would rather be sellers at the deadline and get assets for our ufas and trade some bottom 6ers out.
  4. I would take toffoli if we were able to send derek ryan back the other way. TT isnt a move that pushes the needle enough to to justify a rental trade. I would suggest To Calgary Tyler Toffoli Jack Campbell To LA (thanks) Derek Ryan Cam Talbot 2nd rnd pick 2020
  5. Concerning the Riley Nash proposal, personallyni hate the idea. Riley Nash is a worse player than every player on our team and has another year after this one. Frolik is a great defensive player aside from having a moderate scoring touch. I would rather hold off on signing Tkachuk for a month so that we can give him the contract he is asking for. If we waited on signing MT and Mang for 1 month into season, we would be able to sign to get MT for 5 yr at 8.5 aav or less and still sign Mang for 1.4 aav.

    RIP FF52. I havent been on in a while and am sad to hear that part of our hockey circle has passed. He was always active in these boards through the good and bad. Always posted his counter arguements with thought and humour. His discourse will be greatly missed in the game day threads and flames discussion threads.
  7. Im not a fan of Talbot coming to Calgary but if we sign him for 1 million without conditions, we can send him down if he doesnt perform without any consequences other than paying him a lot for ahl play. I would even be okay with signing him for 2 or 3 years at that as we dont have anyone chomping at the bit.
  8. I think Calgary should trade a second (first if we have to) in 2021 to send Neal (and Stone) to a team like Ottawa. I agree that Neal had a down year and will bouce back somewhat but his contract blocks us from improving our right side. A trade that couples Brodie and Frolik would be great for any team with the cap room that could recoup the pick and return us an nhl player. With all that cap space we can make a move to sign a top flight right winger a second or third line right d and maybe a cheap winger like Justin Williams on a one year contract.
  9. We definately should have taken kaliyev. This draft was very underwhelming.
  10. RANGERS James Neal Derek Ryan Dillion Dube Dalton Prout 2019 1st rnd pick 2020 1st rnd pick 2019 5th rd pick FLAMES Kevin Hayes Mika Zibanejad Anthony Deangleo
  11. Jankowski outplayed Bennett yet most are still wanting to give Bennett favorable ice time. It is based solely on his draft spot and not on anything he has shown. He should have been put back in juniors however now he should play fourth line to limit his mistakes and bad penalties until he can think the game at a higher level. (If the third line gets broken up)
  12. Personally hoping we can move on from Kulak. Doesnt bring enough to warrant a full time spot. Valimaki joining us would be good with Andersson being our 7th ultimately means we will have to expose a good dman for Seattle.
  13. This is a thread about speculation. It is not intended to run a players name through the mud. With that in mind, the information that is public and the parties that have chimed in, can lead one to assume the simplest explanation. With Hoffman having been previously linked to Calgary, there is a place to discuss the allegations and the affect on his value or place on an nhl team. I do not believe that if his fiancee did do this, that he would necessarily know. Ones online antics are not always a discussed thing. It very well could have been that when EK confronted him that he heard about the harassment for the first time and didn't believe it, confronted her and was faced with her denial.
  14. I would offer something for him solely to help the senators locker room. The wives of former senators that know both of them have spoken out but this (alleged) POS has probably make others wives of current players uncomfortable too. Get him and ban his wife from any nhl related event so that the senators themselves can move on from this. As passionate fans, we can chant ditch the witch every game too. Let him walk when his contract is done.
