  1. No... as long as the player you choose was available at the Flames first pick.
  2. Here is my crack at it: LW C RW 1st Line Brad Marchand (2006) Patrice Bergeron (2003) David Pasternak (2014) 2nd Line Mathew Tkatchuk (2016) Mathew Barzal (2015) Nikita Kucherov (2011) 3rd Line Jamie Benn (2007) Ryan O'Reilly (2009) Mark Stone (2010) 4th Line Jakob Pelletier (2019) Sean Monahan (2013) Justin Williams (2000) LD RD 1st D Duncan Keith (2002) Kris Letang (2005) 2nd D Colton Parayko (2012) John Carlson (2008) 3rd D Juuso Valimaki (2017) Noah Dobson (2018) Starter Pekka Rinne (2004) Backup Mike Smith (2001)
  3. What if you were in charge of scouting and drafting for the Flames from the 2000 NHL entry draft until now, what would your roster look like?? Rules: Pick a player you would have selected with the 1st round pick from each draft year starting with the 2000 NHL draft. The player must have been drafted lower then the position the Flames own (Ex. In 2007 they owned the 24 overall, can only select the original pick (Backlund) or lower) Must pick 4 LW, 4 C, 4 RW, 3 RD, 3 LD and 2 goalies (Players must play their position, cannot have a team of all centers) For the years the Flames didn't have a pick assume they did: 2018 select a player 12 or lower 2015 select a player 15 or lower 2010 select a player 13 or lower Players must still be active Would be interesting to see what kind of teams everyone comes up with! Would this team contend for the cup?
  4. If Jack Quinn falls to us, I feel like its a no brainer. Gunler will be there and I think he would be a great add. Both these players are goal scorers, something our team really lacks.
  5. Jack Quinn would be a stud on the right side of Mony and Jonny.
  6. I agree on your assessment of Brodie, but I just don't see the need for Hamonic… If we sign him for 3.5 to play on the bottom pair then its Stone all over again. Our D is very good without him: Gio - Brodie Hanifin - Andersson Valimaki - Gus extra: Kylington, Yelesin, Forbot Now this being said, if the plan is to dangle Hanifin for a top 6 winger maybe signing him makes sense. But definitely not more then what you mentioned @3.5 x 2. Gio - Brodie Gus - Andersson Valimaki - Hamonic extra: Kylington, Yelesin, Forbot
  7. I like his shoot first mentality. We don't have many like that... the second Monahan goal was set up because of that.
  8. I agree with this 100%... I think it will also relieve the pressure from Gio to play in every situation. This will keep him fresh for the playoffs. Gustafson can play PP and Forbot can play PK... I think this makes our D very strong and balanced.
  9. Barrie just left practice too.... lol oh trade deadline speculation
  10. No forecheck.. it seemed like constantly the Bruins had forever to get out of their zone. They never seem to make the game harder for whoever they are playing.
  11. I would be all over this. He has played center at a high level before, imagine him with Tkatchuk… feisty. Gaudreau Monahan Lindholm Tkatchuk Domi Bennett Lucic Backlund Dube Mangiapane Ryan Reider That's 3 balanced lines and that second line would be something else.
  12. I think he will take a wait and see approach based on prices not the results of the games. Right now it seems prices are high, so it might not make sense to buy. On the other hand, if prices stay high then maybe its worth selling... IMO A depth player is not going to move the needle, I don't see the point... if BT makes a trade I feel like it needs to be for a bonified upgrade in the top 6. Hopefully one that can stay there for a couple years...
  13. Toffoli is 1" taller, and 1 year younger and I wouldn't say he plays with grit.... Palmieri plays nothing like Gaudreau… I just think if you are going to pay for a RHS scoring winger Palmeiri is a better player and with an extra year on his contract its better asset management. He has 5 straight seasons of 20 goals or more now... Toffoli has scored 3 total... and they were 3 years ago now. Just my thoughts, Toffoli is hyped because he is a rental and the Kings are selling, but I don't think he is the better player at all.
