  1. Not saying you hate him 😃 just noticed that you rag on him a bit. The flip side to less PP points is that he had more even strength points! Positives in every story 😃 Did he play less time on the PP this season? Regression of 0.44% on the FO! It's a hard crowd!! He probably had less FO this year as they used Ryan and quite correctly a lot more. Agree with the playoff frustration. Anyways my main point is that you could hardly call his year underwhelming compared to other years.
  2. Sorry TD but cannot let this pass. You seem to be on an anti Backlund roll for the past year. It what way can you call his last year underwhelming? And in need of a rebound? The last four years have been pretty similar. Points solid to previous years and yet less PP points and PP time and games +/- improved drastically FO% pretty much the same I have not looked at all the new stats but in this snapshot I see no difference. And yes playoffs he was not particulary good along with some notable others like Gio and Chucky but you have were questioning him long before the playoffs started. We would be a lot weaker down the middle without him. It is not just you by the way. I just do not get the Backlund dislike.
  3. Well Lucic is a Flame now. So welcome and good luck!! BoA is going to be so hyped this year.
  4. Seems a pretty solid selection for all 5 guys. No-one to come and play in September but a couple of picks could be real steals. With Wolf - numbers are good but he has backing up a good Everett team. 6.1 maybe small but still suprised he fell as far as he did yet Mads Sogaard went at number 37. Be interesting to see how he pans out.
  5. Really suprised at the Canes. Thought Bourdreau would out coach them
  6. CBJ v BOS in 6 CAR v NYI in 5 STL v DAL in 6 SJS v COL in 7 actually the sharks probably advance but I detest Kane so I hope the Avs prevail. NYI v STL in the final with St Louis winning in 7.
  7. Thebrewcrew - 1 out of 8 Cross - 2 of 8 Conundrumed - 5 of 8!! Only one winner there!! One of the weirdest 1st rounds with no diviision leaders making it through.
  8. 3 out of 4 division leaders out of the playoffs in round 1 and the 4th in a game 7. seeds 5 7 & 8 through from the West and if Vegas wins then number 6 aswell. Does show the parity in the NHL and you need a bit of luck here and there. If game 2 OT went the other way it could have been a different series. Unfortunately AVs were more hungry, played better than us and we were out coached. Although I am still hugely dispappointed at the round 1 exit, overall as a season, none of us were expecting top seed in the West, I am extremely proud of the the team as a whole. Gio for Norris! Go Flames Go!!
  9. Amazing that our worrygoing into the playoffs was goaltending. I guess that as this thread fell so far down that everyone is content with Smitty's performances? I just hope he isn't tired out with all the work we have given him.
  10. got to be Blockchaining joking All the Satoshi Nakamoto they hve let go
  11. not going to be any calls in this one. Zebras put their whistles where the sun don't shine
