  1. Welcome, and nice layout of your thoughts on quick post. I personally think he's better suited to not be rushed. I think Monahan was an outlier and made the team moreso out of necessity than showing the club he belonged at 18 years old. I say send Tkachuk back and let him own the league.
  2. http://flames.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=888691&navid=DL|CGY|home One year, Two-way deal. Most likely starts in Stockton. With all of the upset he had to deal with in his family while playing a pro game, I hope he bounces back and becomes a serviceable bottom 9 guy. Best of luck to him. Thoughts? Discuss.
  3. I'm on board for anything to shed Wideman's contract. If the target is a viable backup or an up and comer and Wideman plus a B prospect is the price, then so be it. I believe Fleury and Bishop negotiations are done with Calgary. I'd be surprised if either of those 2 ended up in Cowtown this season.
  4. Goalie list updated on the OP. Glad the brass addressed the starter issue with Elliot. Always liked the guy's playing style, and we'll see how he does with a new coach, and Calgary's D core implementing a new system. It'll be interesting who they sign as a backup. I've never been to high on Ortio, while others have. He's had his moments, but I've always likened him to Irving who just couldn't quite grab the reins. I hope they don't jump the gun and bring Gilles up for a few games. IMO I'd prefer to play the whole season in Stockton.
  5. E4 is practically a done deal.
  6. I wonder if there's a deal to be had for Fleury, now that he's had his 2nd cup, and with Murray stealing his spot. I could see Pitts looking to shed some salary.
  7. Hartley, you will be missed. Thanks for all the hard work, the playoff run, and your positive work ethic attitude. Also the Hartley-isms. They were a treat each interview. Good luck to you and your family!

      I'll miss him. The man loved his work and working for the Flames.

  8. There's two sides to the coin here. Ortio is doing really well as he's had consistent starts and has earned Hartley's favor for the time being. However, one could argue that he's playing in meaningless games at the end of a season when points don't really count towards the score card.
  9. Janko has looked really good in his debut. He's already got his first point, and Huska has nothing but good things to say about him. 3:16 - Janko's first professional assist Huska, Schneider, and Janko interviews
  10. I expect Janko to sign by the weekend. My own personal belief. If/when he does, It'll be a treat to see him compete in a Flames uni. I don't expect the world to be lit on fire by his game, but to see a 4 year progression unfold will be intriguing nonetheless.
  11. Bring on the draft lottery already...so I can end this dream of Matthews coming to the Flames and get over waking up to him in an Oilers jersey.

      The dream has died.

  12. He's not my solution. I said he was a viable option, and I agree, it most likely won't happen this offseason. Bennett, Mony, Gaudreau, all are viable options. So are draft picks. So are prospects. So is cap space. Assets are assets. It's up to the GM to decide which ones are expendable for a need, and which ones are needed with the club. What would be your solution to starting goaltender needs, other than hoping Gillies pans out?
  13. Well, it's no secret that either wouldn't come cheap. Goalies, and starters at that, tend to come at a high price these days. The Flames do have a solid pocket full of picks they could deal with, and also a few players on hand that could potentially be dealt. The Flames won't be paired up with Gio forever. Like it or not. He's a viable option while his stock is at it's highest. Bishop has one more year on his contract at nearly 6 mil cap hit. With Stamkos looking like a possibility of exiting the club, they may look to retool on the fly. Andersen will be an RFA, and Gibson is already signed long term. Anything is possible if either the Ducks or the Bolts have needs in other areas and are willing to deal. I did forget to mention Raanta as well, from NY. He may be a doable FA signing if the Flames can entice him, and the Rangers don't put ink to paper with him before Free Agency.
  14. It's a tossup between Steve Vai and John Petrucci for me. Vai was awesome in Crossroads with the Daniel-son from Karate Kid. But Petrucci comes from one of my favorite bands (math metal type) Dream Theatre. And of course me being a drummer for 20 years, the drummer for Dream Theatre is my fave - Mike Portnoy. ( a hat's off to John Myung as well - bassist for Dream Theatre) John Petrucci Also, for those looking for a real treat, check out any youtube "G3" video and you'll see many amazing artists in action with each other, shredding up the masses.
  15. That he does rob. He's not a candidate for the Hobey, but I'd like to see him lead his team to another championship. However, lets look at the flipside. If he does win, there are no available games left in the season with the Flames. That puts a spin on him possibly knocking off one of his ELC years when he signs.
