  1. Darren Haynes has a interesting take on the lines. Worth a read. http://www.flamesfrom80feet.ca/2020/10/but-what-if-flames-core-has-changed-and.html
  2. They still have to sign Kylington if they are going that route. According to Cruickshank in an Athletic article we are at 18 signed with 3.3M left in cap space to sign 4/5 more so I can see them going with Yelesin/Petrovic if they want a RD but could also seem them give Mackay a go. Unless we make moves to free up cap space they are going to have to go with 22 players and the last 4 that make it need to be close to league minium.
  3. The hint of attitude and swagger is what we need and he is 18!! My impression was a slight cockiness but happy with that as well. Wish him every success. I also like how upfront he said in a previous interview how he thought he would end up back in Kamploops this season and still had stuff to work on to make the jump to pros. To me that is someone who knows his game and where he needsto be at.
  4. The Athletic article suggets even if we give Mange $3Mil and fill out roster with minimum contracts we will still be 500k over cap. Which would suggest we still need to trade someone away.
  5. ffs why do people have to be so freaking negative all the time. Opinions are fine but he constant bashing of the Flames and thier scouts. I came looking for some good info on our draft choices and found a bunch of wannabe GMs and Scouts who are basically clueless whether this kids will pan out or not.
  6. Being the UK I have not the local knowledge to discuss the pros and cons of individual draft picks. So do not comment. But i find the thread informative and appreciate what Crzydrvr does each year.
  7. By all accounts a solid pick with added bonus of 2 x 3rds. Good job BT.
  8. We didn't gift Fox. He was never going to sign here. Trying to lay the blame for that on Treliving is just daft. Similar to that other D we lost out of college to NYR but he didn't pan out so we are not blaming anyone. It's only because Fox is looking like he is going to be a legit 1st liner that people are complaining that we lost him. Personanly I am glad we got rid of Hamilton. I think we got the best player in the deal with Lindholm.
  9. Yeah but if we had taken him you know his hip injury would come back 😛
  10. Gio - your organisation shows no class if you ship Gio out. A Captain is more than just his on ice presence. In today's world he is an ambasador between the community and club and if you think Gio is going to be moved by the Flames think again. It's not going to happen. Now I also think Gio is a realist. He will know in himself he has not had his best season. I can see him pass the C on to someone else but I actually do not think there is a suitable replacement. Some will say Tkchuk but I would disagree i don't think he needs the C as it would take away from his style of game. And outside of Matty who has the cahunas to take this club out of country club mentality? Nearest for me is Anderson maybe Dube in the futrure but heere is no one on this club that screams make me your Captain. Oh and as much as I have loved watching JH I think it is time to ship him out to the East if we can get a decent return for him which in times of a flat is going to be real hard as his contract looks pretty decent.
  11. Great period. Must be ready for the push back in the second
  12. yeah dinlt like that penalty from Lucic. Byt great start Flames Now keep it going.
  13. Good morning Flames Fans +GDT Carty thank you again. Lets get this done Flames Go Flames Go!
