  1. Bad night from the Flames tonight. Vladar looked sharp though
  2. https://www.nhl.com/flames/video/live-flames-vs-oilers/t-277437092/c-40471703
  3. First game of the exhibition season. 7pm at the Dome Two Flames I'm most interested in tonight are Vladar and Pelletier.
  4. I love Tkachuk. But if the Flames are serious about keeping him, be prepared to pay up. I think he looks at the Marner deal. Thats 10.9 AAV
  5. Shea Weber is likely to never play again so they'll just put him on LTIR. They can be over the cap in the offseason
  6. I think it’s probably fair. A little high for me personally, but MTL had a hole they needed to fill. One thing this deal could do is shake loose the trade market. Maybe teams with interest in Dvorak will call BT about Monahan
  7. Right now, this is my Flames lineup Gaudreau-Lindholm-Tkachuk Mangiapane-Monahan-Coleman Dube-Backlund-Pitlick Lucic-Gawdin/Ruzicka-Lewis Hanifin-Tanev Zadorov-Andersson Valimaki-Kylington Markstrom Vladar I like having one spot open for a young player to potentially fill, if they earn it. I think this year it's Ruzicka or Gawdin. I would also explore adding a 3rd pairing RD and a 3rd line RW.
  8. If MTL matches the offersheet, they aren't able to trade Kotkaniemi for a full year. I also think it'd be a significant overpayment for MTL to get Eichel. It would be like the Flames dealing Tkachuk to Anaheim, only if the return is significantly better do you trade a premier player inside the division
  9. Teams in the OHL and QMJHL will frequently mortgage the future to win a championship. They will jettison multiple, significant futures. Thats's what the Foreurs did and unfortunately they just came up short. An example being Robert Thomas (plays for STL) was traded in the OHL for Connor McMichael (WSH pick), 4 2nd round picks and a 3rd.
  10. If Montreal doesn't end up matching the offersheet, I think it will wake up, what's been a quiet trade market the past month. The Habs would be looking to replace Kotkaniemi and aside from Eichel, Monahan, Hertl and Dvorak have all been rumoured to be available. Friedman thinks Bergevin will survey the league, see what kind of player that CAR 1st and 3rd could get him. I'd do that if it was offered for Monahan, although I think the Flames would be looking for a hockey-trade. Could always use those picks to add on to an Eichel trade offer.
  11. I love it, but it’d have been better if they’d have waited a year and went after Nick Suzuki. Give him an insane shorter term deal like they did to Aho…
  12. I would take the compensation if I was MTL. I have hard time paying someone that wasn’t even in their lineup at the end of the Cup Final being worth 6.1 Exciting news in a slow spell for the NHL though
  13. https://www.foreverblueshirts.com/analyst-claims-rangers-last-place-sabres-will-trade-jack-eichel-because-thats-where-he-wants-to-be/
  14. I could see Boston having interest in Monahan. Not exactly easy, the Bruins have 1mill in cap space. John Moore needed hip surgery and will miss time, on LTIR that can free up 2.75 in cap space. The Flames would have to take Debrusk in a Monahan deal. I'd also want one of their D prospects to offset the difference in Debrusk/Monahan as players. Vaakanainen, Lyle or Berglund. Flames forward lines would look like Gaudreau-Lindholm-Tkachuk Mangiapane-Backlund-Coleman Debrusk-?-Dube Lucic-Lewis-Pitlick The big hole is obviously at 3rd line C. Would almost need to get an Eichel or Dvorak deal done, because the top 9 wings are really deep.
