  1. You’re definitely right that they are BS. How does Pavelski, with 33 points, get picked ahead of any of Monahan, Lindholm or Tkachuk. Taking off the Flames coloured glasses even, how does he make it ahead of Draisaitl? Being the host city should have nothing to do with it. Then you look at Karlsson getting selected ahead of Gio and it just makes you shake your head in disgust.
  2. I think that the best all around choice to bring in would be Wayne Simmonds. Would Philly be open to a deal with Michael Stone going back, to even out the dollars? Obviously there would be another piece going back, like a draft pick or a young guy. Someone like Kylington or Dube. Would this deal be worth it, to add some more toughness with some skill? Another option, although I doubt they trade him, is Lawson Crouse from Arizona. He’s a big tough forward, who has some skill.
  3. I was looking at it tonight with the possible injury to Smith. If he is out long term and his money can be put on LTIR, then Jake Allen could be added to this trade somehow. Besides that, does a trade like the one below appeal to STL? To Calgary: Vladimir Tarasenko Robby Fabbri To St. Louis: James Neal Mark Jankowski Oliver Kylington I am not sure so maybe others more in the know on the value of Fabbri, could say how close or far off this deal is. Would you need to swap Bennett in instead of Janko? The only aspect to consider is how much of a leadership/attitude role does Neal play in the dressing room. Is he a big part of why this teams got more of a winning culture it seems, despite his lack of offence? He could be bringing the intangibles that we were missing.
  4. So Lomberg gets a suspension, as he should, and Giordano gets a hearing for the knee/trip. No word on Dumba getting anything.
  5. I feel like we have been waiting a long time to see the Flames respond to one of their players (usually Johnny Hockey) getting run at. They have really stood up for each other this season though, and tonight was the best response by far. Both an automatic response with the fight, and then the huge comeback. These are the types of wins that really bond a team together.
  6. I have really liked how Lindholm has looked as well. His puck pursuit and determination have really stood out to me.
  7. By reading some of your posts I am beginning to think that you are a troll of some kind. You are nothing but negative about everything Flames related. I don’t mean to be offensive or anything, however it’s tough when you are continually bashing every move the Flames make.
  8. You’re forgetting Tkachuk.
  9. Here’s how I think it breaks down after next season. Tavares: $11,000,000 Matthews: $11,000,000 Marner: $7,500,000 Nylander: $6,500,000 Marleau: $6,000,000 Kadri: $4,500,000 Reilly: $5,000,000 Zaitzev: $4,500,000 Anderson: $5,000,000 Total: $61,000,000 That is a boatload of money for just 9 players.
  10. Beat me to it Cross.
  11. I think that you are underestimating the talent difference between Lindholm and Ferland. I personally do not think that the Flames needed to add Fox in as a third piece, but I think that the upgrade from Ferland to Lindholm is significant. So we lost some on the defense but pretty much evened it out up front imo. Giving up Fox is what makes it just a little hard to take for me. If he wanted out then we should have dealt him in a separate deal, or received more back from Carolina.
  12. I am not happy with this either, however I had a thought. What if Dougie was more upset than was let on, over his brother being traded?
  13. Treliving has never clearly lost a trade, I don’t think. Would this be his first big blunder, if it’s true?
  14. I suggested this same thing a little earlier, but with Pacioretty coming back too. It could be a good fit, if a deal could be worked out.
  15. What do you guys think of Bennett and Brodie to Montreal for Pacioretty and the 3rd overall. Then we draft Brady Tkachuk at 3rd overall? Would that be enough for Montreal to do that deal, or would it need to be Bennett and Hamilton? This made sense to me, seeing as how they are looking for a Centre and a D-man.
