    Parson had a SV% of 0.921 and 0.925 in the two years leading into his draft year. Not sure how his offensive-juggernaut team changes how he stopped pucks.

    UFA 2021

    Here's hoping Brad forgets his cheque book at home tomorrow. Let the smoke clear then find some good value in the next day or three.
  3. Pretty goal........for a guy who holds his stick the wrong way.
  4. 5 years ago when we re-signed Gio to a 6 yr $40.5M deal not many liked the 6th year of that deal except Gio. If we had known then that an expansion team would take him off our hands the final year of his contract then it was a slam dunk re-signing. If Gio stayed this season he would have still been good value here while leading the team one more year. Gio is a leader, seeing him show up live on the Seattle stage was not surprising, he is a solid dude. The Kraken have added a great dman this season. We had to give up somebody. The team will definitely miss Gio but the Flames were forced to turn the page. All the best Gio and thank you for the great many years.
  5. Reminiscent of Michael Ferland.
  6. Lumber is up 250%, steel maybe the same. Tack that onto a billion dollar project and..................well lets pause a minute, or maybe forever.
  7. BT is not going anywhere, nor should he. FA’s have been getting over paid across every sports league since the beginning of time, nothing new there. SB is going to FLO to be SB. He will never live up to his 4OA selection. Thank goodness BT resisted signing SB long term when other teams were giving out 6x6 to kids like bags of candy. SB and Lomberg are going to rip it up, yeah! I do wish the best for SB though. The Flames should be getting credit for nurtured him into the man he is today. But no, we want to talk about over paying FA's.
  8. Yup. Will struggle to find ice time under DS regime.
  9. Huh? Nobody wanted Ryan at the beginning of season on waivers because the cost was full salary. Even if we ate 100% to gain a late round pick I think we'd be better off than status quo because I'm not seeing the player resigning. We are eating 100% anyway, may as well have a pick come back, unless the focus is on winning now. Are we winning now or building now?
  10. Not a bad TDL for BT and the Flames. The only way it could have been better was if they moved Ryan. Obviously there was nothing offered for him because I'm not seeing him back next season, even at league minimum.
  11. Writing was on the wall for Sam a long time. He left the org saying nothing but good things about it, the org had nothing but good things to say publicly about Sam. The split couldn't have gone better. Full marks to both sides for taking the high road on this one and looking like a professionals. Flames got a nice return. Sam gets an opportunity elsewhere. My advice to Sam would be to leave his gloves on until after he gets a new contract. The last thing FLO needs is Sam gone with a broker finger, minus 2 second round picks and nothing to show for it.
  12. Hall is no use to them, Lazar is finished plus a salary dump next year. BUF got something from nothing.
  13. Most of the ingrediencies are there with the exception of the lottery pick spice. EDM and TO seen to have found the rare spice but they had to loiter outside the food bank for years on end. Maybe a little more marination with new chef may help. How is the chili in DET these days? I prefer ground beef in my chili and stewing beef in stew.
  14. Edwards obviously rubber stamped the hire but I seriously doubt he made the Sutter hire. No secret BT wants a hybrid team, one that can do it all. But our core does not compare to TB core. We have nobody that compares to Stampkos, Point, Hedman, Segachev, Vasilevski. We got an undersized Johnny in the sixth round and we are hanging our hat on him hoping for the promise land.
  15. Hockey purists? You mean like Don Cherry? Obviously you missed the head lines about 2 pros capable of making appropriate decisions, hence the topic. And you completely missed the point of having responsible refs police their zone, and not the outcome of the game. Nobody mentioned backrooms or basements, pretty sure the suggestion was along the glass or similar with best view and cutting edge tech to support. When a captain skates over to talk to a ref have you ever him return satisfied or call over turned? I haven’t, so what is the point of skating over there? If you like the imperfect game so much then bite your lip about “being so sick of changing standards in a game or from one game to the next”. More eyes on the game, making the best decisions in real time was the suggestion while removing two obstacles on the ice.
