  1. I said to my brother that he looked like he was having norris type game, as ridiculous and bias as that might sound. He really showed his ability in those 4 on 4 scenarios, not to mention his defense all night was very good.
  2. I think the word immediately is wrong to use in this situation. It's been a long year for us flames fans to mull things over. Johnny has always struck me as a family first guy, despite signing with us when he did. Just an opinionated conclusion/feeling, not saying its right or wrong.
  3. What it looks like to me, is Johnny wanting out of Calgary. Assuming that's the case, I'd prefer it to be sooner than later. When he broke in to the league, he was right up there in takeaways, and HOUNDED players who had the puck. After he signed his current deal, imo, his work ethic has dropped season after season. I don't know if his dads heart related incident is playing a part in this, or if its a life outside of hockey problem, but this guy is far from the 99 point player he was last year. Ever since the 5 day break last season, he has not been the same. I don't know what happened, but its hard to watch how little heart he plays with night after night.
  4. I'd lose my Satoshi Nakamoto if we got Anderson from CBJ. Every time I watch the kid, he impresses me with his skill and work ethic. He was awesome vs the lightning last year in the playoffs.
  5. There was a point during the game where I almost threw up a bit watching Johnny. He was out there for maybe 20 seconds, and then changed because one of his line mates dumped it in, and he was supposed to be the forechecker trying to retrieve the puck. He might have been tired, who knows, I might be over thinking it, but man, its hard to say he's been playing with a ton of heart this season.
  6. 0 urgency on that pp. Absolutely pathetic.
  7. The preds coach firing kind of put a wrench into this thought, but I always imagined a Backlund for Turris swap could be good thing both teams. Something along the lines of: To the preds: Backlund 4th round pick (conditional 3rd) To Calgary: Turris (1mil retained)
  8. Before he got injured, he was almost at a 2.00 ppg pace. Looking like he's slowed down a bit following the injury, which is kind of a bummer, considering he was having a great season. Still love the player though.
  9. If its Ovechkin or Benn throwing those hits, no one bats an eye, in fact, they're probably celebrated, and kassian doesn't attack anyone. This was an incident based on reputation, and I know people hate tkachuk, but I'm absolutely flabbergasted by the amount of people taking Kassians side. Look where he had his grip on Tkachuk, right on the back of the collar. Any time he pulled on the jersey, he was forcing Tkachuks back towards himself. I don't care if thats Chara, no ones going to be able to break his grip, square up and start throwing retaliation punches. If you're going to whine about a player not fighting you, at least make it a fair fight to begin with. That's way more dangerous than any hit landed during this game. Tkachuk would have probably still walked away given the chance, but THAT'S when you fittingly call him a p***y. Kassian just straight up attacked a dude for getting ragdolled twice. If that's anyone else but Chuky, almost no one takes Kassians side, I'd bet money on it. And the turtle comments are just hilarious, like every oiler fan saying that wouldn't have done the same thing in that situation XD God they're so dumb.
  10. We just simply didn't show up. Burn the tape and move on.
  11. Its hard to believe that not too long ago, Ras was getting in trouble with management about coming in to camp out of shape. He's turned in to a solid top 4 with top 2 upside, and may very well be the best dman the league, that no ones heard of (yet.) This is an absolute steal by BT. His offensive numbers haven't been great, but it just seems like a matter of time with him.
  12. That's what actually bothers me the most about the play. Even though the play was definitely onside, there's no way the linesman was mindful about how precise that tag up at the line had to be. Most officials would have blown that offside without question. Regardless, this team had more than enough opportunities to score with pp's at the end. It's a learning experience for the group to not let one call derail their play.
  13. The flames team that showed up today still looks like a playoff team, which is a good sign. Reimer kept them in it early, and aside from flubbing it all 3rd period, we still put in a good effort. On to the next one.
  14. I loved that we started throwing the body near the 2nd and in the 3rd. It really seemed to energize us for a few shifts.
