  1. I gotta believe that Chiarelli would have been fired awhile ago if there would’ve been any other better candidate that would’ve taken the job.... The quickest fix for this organization includes firing a lot of people and buying out some bad contracts. They will also have to trade LeRoy Soupladel and eat half of his contract. The best case scenario for Oiler fans is that the Oilers are playoff contenders in about 3 years and cup contenders in 5 or 6 years at which point McSteven will no longer be there.
  2. Am I the only one that was expecting to wake up and here that Lomberg had been recalled for tonight’s game???
  3. I agree 100% with the notion that the league suspended both Gio and Lomberg for the Oilers game to give the Oilers as much of an upper hand as possible. It’s too bad because this really could have been a great game with lots of emotion and Lomberg would have come in handy on the road. I understand Lomberg getting the automatic game suspension as it is part of the rules but there was absolutely no reason whatsoever to tack an extra game on for doing exactly what every team does when one of their top forwards takes a big hit....
  4. I gots a feeling that the referees are going to have a major impact in this game!!! Too bad if I’m right... Correct me if I’m wrong but the Flames have had 2 pp’s through their last 10 or more periods😕 while badly ouskating their opponents for the majority of that!!!
  5. I didn’t read through the thread before posting this so if it has been asked don’t be too hard on me... Here is my question, Where would the Flames be in the standings, in your opinion, if they had league average goaltending from their starter (Smith)???
  6. ? Wrong!!! BP has one of the greatest goalie under the bus rants in history!!! Just ask Eddie Lack?
  7. BP just endorsed Smitty and threw Hanafin under the bus!!! This is likely relationship based but I certainly don’t agree with this. Smith is consistently the 2nd best goalie on the ice and it is high time his coach did something about it!!!
  8. 4 min for Peluso because Smith put the Flames behind early. The Flames are always having to play from behind and can’t get the bottom 6 enough ice time to even make an impact on the game!!!
  9. Smith gives his team a chance to lose every game!!! A lot of missed chances hurt but expecting the team to score 4+ goals every game is too much!!! Smith allowing multiple crappy goals is making it impossible for BP to roll 4 lines and is going to be taxing on the top players in the long run. On another note, the Flames finally got Stajan off the books and replace him with Doc Ryan????
  10. Benny was unbelievable tonight!!! The refs let the boys play hockey and Benny really brought it. I hope this is the start of a breakthrough. He’s scored in each of the last 3 games!!!
  11. Sam Bennett picked this team up and put them on his back!!! Nice to see!!!
  12. I’m excited about the lineup changes tonight. I expect Hathaway will be noticeable as he almost always is. I predict a 4th line goal tonight from Janko. It or sucks that Frolik is the odd man tonight but that’s what happens when you have depth. It’s going to be imperative that Brodano is out against the McKinnon line or they could cause a lot of grief!!!!

  14. Let’s just agree that this will be an awfully long season if we need 5+ goals each night to get a “W”. The poster that called Smith “Hot Garbage” was absolutely correct. When Rittich played like that last year the fans and media were all over him. This is supposed to be a 3-2 league...In order for this team to be successful the GAA needs to be below 3.00 It looks to me like Smitty has started this season just like he ended last season and that is not a positive sign for the Flames.
  15. Absolutely correct!!! So far the officials have cost him 2 goals this year. He should have 3 pts playing on the 3rd line. I’m happy with what I’m seeing from him!!!
