  1. I do believe in those kinds of superstitions. I think even if Bennett went to #39 then he’d be fully following in Gilmour’s strides. When he gets traded to Toronto he can switch to 93.
  2. I think it’s actually harder than we think, and I mean, to find a guy that can play with energy and that can actually play. We’ve had guys who can punch faces but took up roster spots to play a few minutes. I actually think Peters could have deployed the 4th line a lot better to get more energy into the lineup. That 4th got really good there but he seemed to go away from it. I actually think we will really miss Hathaway and what he brings. We found him but also haven’t really found anyone that can replace him; for a decent contract that is.
  3. His career will blossom as he will feel more himself now

    MILAN LUCIC

    I am guessing we should expect 35+ points to be a good thing? I am just so tired of how much the Flames pay their bottom 6 players, and Lucic’s contract makes that even worse. The bottom 6 is ok but not that great to begin with and yet we spend that much on it?
  5. I am like you, there are other things that BT has done that I haven’t liked. This one made me lose faith due to the accumulation of errs that have been made. It is like others say, can’t hate the player but I sure as hell can hate the contract and GMs that are making the deals. But i I am beginning to really wonder about the plan. So many say it’s easy to sign guys like this but we have to pay him 5m+. ????
  6. He must’ve asked to get dealt?
  7. Looking at the Buyout I would have preferred they bought out Neal now instead of trading for this buyout-free contract in Lucic. The buyout of neal would have saved the flames roughly 4mil per season.

    500K per fight and 500K per goal. Go Looch!!!!
  10. They probably retain 12% of the buyout amount?
  11. Ya, true. What matters is getting the puck going the other way, getting it out and getting it into scoring positions. Is Justin Williams that fast? He makes a difference.

    MILAN LUCIC

    Hahaha A $1 million prize fighter. I guess it’s less than a main event fighter gets but worth it if Johnny and Monny don’t end off the season with something broken. Hopefully he can help with a new configuration for the PP and can pop an extra few on top of what Neal scored.
  13. Who is faster? Does Lucic at least have the ability to keep up?
  14. I think it had a lot to do with BP - Neal - as someone he just couldn’t trust anymore. Their relationship soured. He probably was never going to gain respect that was never earned, plus where would he play up the roster? I guess neither player is a win, but for some reason I would have preferred a gamble on Neal as the rebounder. Lucic has had three poor years to Neal’s one. Tough call, but a lot are right here, there must not have been any other options for Trading away Neal. I wonder if eating 2 mil in cap would have done the trick but... hoping there is more to it, there is still a lot of cap that needs to be shed to get the rest of the team finished.
