  1. I don’t think we should complain about the 2nd unit otherwise.
  2. No, goaltending is the team’s problems not the depth scoring. We haven’t seen what happens when the first line gets shut down at all. 3M line is getting better again. But the only time we see depth is in high scoring games against teams either at the bottom of the playoffs or out of it completely. The tighter games it’s a different story.
  3. Rittich was not bad that night, the team was bad defensively. The players let a guy skate behind them and gave up a breakaway way and they scored. Another was a bad low percentage move by frolik in their slot, giveaway and they skate up ice, set up, frolik tips the puck on net and in. Another goal was on a hard screen and couldn’t see the puck at all. Now tell me how he had had a bad game? the Flames’ goalie was not great, but we want the goalie to be great in order to win? That is only masking the flaws. I don’t want to mask flaws. Out of the last 6 games the flames played a good game and an average game and the rest are all ones BP wants to iron out in practice. The first line line is masking deeper problems and when we talk about those we are also not positive enough. I guess we meet somewhere in the middle?
  4. We don’t deserve a good goalie. Our Flames fans suck at getting behind a good goalie. The team can make errors but it’s on the goalie. Allow the other team to screen, or our own player can tip the puck on our own net and it’s Rittich’s fault
  5. Well I don’t agree and think he’s the reason the Flames have won , keeping games close enough to comeback. the team play has been horrid aside from the Smith game.

  8. A lot of goals were on screen shots last night, and things out of his control. Unless a goalie is playing like supermen he’s not good. The team made Satoshi Nakamototy mistakes on the goals, so we blame the goalie because he’s the last guy. I will I’ll say that stat is more of a team stat than anyone wants to admit. This is why goalies die here. Even Kipper was at fault when he lost. Lame PS How much of that stat is affected by the lazy goals against after they scored an empty net goal? The Flames also won higher scoring games but went all free and didn’t play great defensive hockey. Stats are deceiving. The Flames have played one good game in the past 6 games.
  9. Gio was at the end of the shift.
  10. Yup! BS, Tkachuk never touched the puck either.
  11. Too pretty on the Frolik giveaway in the slot. They come back to score on a tip off of Frolik’s stick. A blind giveaway up the middle and it’s 3-2 on a huge screen. Team kind of went pretty after ip 2-1. Saw it coming.
  12. The ones I would replace and upgrade are Peluso and Prout.
  13. Ferland scored a little bit on the 4th line. He showed his potential skill in that role, not just as a hitter. Its like saying, Monahan is a 2nd line C without Gaudreau but a 1st line C with him. He’ll score about 25 goals without Gaudreau but will score 35-40 with him. Ferland isnt going to make offence as a set up guy, but Monahan isn’t the driver either. Probably a bad example. But on a 3rd line I always saw Ferland as a 15 goal guy. He makes your team better as a depth scorer. Although he is showing he can score 20 on a first line.
  14. Yup I think it is great that they have the confidence to comeback but at the same time, it’s not a good habit. The teqm ram has been a slow starter for years now. I guess could call it a feeling out the game process but I’d like them to I still their will from the drop of the puck. It’s hard to be mentally prepared in an 82 game season. But I guess seeing great players and teams do it in the past has spoiled me.
  15. We had a game tonight and after the game One of the guys on our team said it, “I hate to say it but those flames are a good team.” They have a great chance and it’s what all of us on here have been arguing over little/big things for. We’ve waited a long time for this. I think if the Flames can keep the middle six going now, we definitely have something. Tampa is definitely showing what it takes to win. I think we can get there. Next is killer instinct!
