  1. I was agreeing with JTECH. It appears to me a lot of the prescribed trades aren't taking cap issues into account. We have them. May need Brodie gone for picks alone just to get a couple mil off of his contract to meet the Cap.
  2. Excellent point. We have about $11-12 in space. Tkachuk Bennett Mangia Hathaway Fanta Rittich We're outta space. Buyout of Stone likely. Our trades may have to be at the draft table for picks to create space and move fwd from there.
  3. Torts as coach would go something like this: "how did you think your 1st line performed"? Torts: why don't you go ask them how they think they performed, no comment. Love it.
  4. Kinda all comes down to where the first is I think. A >20th 1st deserves at least another 2nd imo.
  5. Excellent point. If Kapanen doesn't have our guys opening ice up for him, is he honestly a 2nd line RW? I'd say no, personally.
  6. It was briefly enjoyable. lol Should Brodie get the same range that we spent on Hamonic? Brodie/4th for a 1st and 2 2nds?
  7. I love Torts. One of the best coaches in the league for my money. Players coach, leads the attitude and treats the media precisely as they should be treated. And he's hilarious. lol
  8. The draft should be quite the start. When Holland realizes the scouting staff is seriously below Detroit's. I wonder if he'll consider the Datsyuk thing. Give up a 1st to lose a bad contract. Quite a conundrum, as they need the pick, but likely the cap space more. He sure has his work cut out for him, as does Stevie cleaning up his mess. lol
  9. JTECH posted this in Realistic Trades etc etc. Just my opinion, in case anyone agrees. A lot of these threads are saying the same thing and are simply becoming massive pages long. Seems like 8 different, yet the same, subject matters are in half of the threads. Is it time for a Flames forum board clean up? Just wondering everyone's opinion. Out with the old, in with the new?
  10. I tend to agree. Could be Chiarelli v2. He was amazing in Detroit prior to managing in the Cap world. Most Wings fans haven't liked him for the past 5ish years for bad cap mgmt. Detroit comes out the winner now with Stevie Y taking over. Both teams with cap issues will make this an interesting comparison.
  11. Works in this regard. Ken Holland is respected throughout the league. Oilers notsomuch. Who wins out. lol
  12. Detroit's been needing LTIR to stay under the Cap forever, it seems like.
  13. Hopefully Stevie Y can clear some cap and older players. Good young players up-and-coming. Please take Green and a 1st aid kit, lol.
  14. A guy who has done nothing but struggle with the cap for 5 years goes to a team struggling with the cap. lol
  15. Same. They seem to have the ability to flip a switch throughout games. Bunch of jerks. lol Outside of the exceptional dmen, it's a pretty ragtag bunch of believers leaving it all on the ice.
