  1. Cale Makar gets hit hard behind the net in game 4. His, next shift u could tell he was pissed off. He, Came back harder on the Flames with an abundance of courage. A college kid? Hanafin has been in the league for 3 years R. Anderrson with 2 years of Minor hockey. TJ with 6 years of NHL experience was shown up by a 20 year old college rookie. No, more softness.
  2. I don't care how fast and amazing u can skate. Hanafin, Brodie, are soft. Hit them hard once in the mouth and they're ineffective. It, takes just one hard body check and they disappear. So, I'm thinking cash them in for 20 something forwards that can turn the physicality wave. Dube is 2 years away so is Valimaki.
  3. Gio and Hamonic are the only hard Hash Rate on the defense. The, rest of them are soft and indecisive. Evident from the Colorado series. Smith was under relentless pressure when Gio and Hamonic weren't on the ice. These fast skating Dmen these days are soft. My trade idea involved young players coming back to us. Cash them in for some gritty power players that aren't afraid of physicality. My trade idea sacrifices the future but our core is young anyways. We're not an old team.
  4. At this stage in Neal's career he's probably suited for the eastern conference where skating isn't as big of deal as the west. East is more strength and aggressiveness. If BT could add Kadri and Zibinajad without losing Any of the core that would be ideal I think. Maybe, our first rounder and O. Kylington for Kadri. ZBJ for Dube, Vallimaki, and Stone. TJ Brodie for a 3rd or 4th rounder. Kadri and ZBJ would add a huge amount of grit to the line up. Flames have 15 mil in cap space. Kadri and ZBJ add 8.5mil. TJ as a salary dump minuses 4 mil Leaves 10.5 mil. Chucky gets 7 mil. Bennet gets 2 mil. Only important rfa left is Rittich. Sorry, guys I think my math is off a bit on this one.
  5. Exactly the opposite. BT and BP have forced Bennet Ito an agitating fighting role.
  6. Wayne Simmonds for sure 2nd line right winger. No, way we'd get Simmonds for Stone. Good start though. Sweeten the deal a bit.
  7. Valimaki for Brayden Schenn. Our, new 3rd line Center. Kick scaredy cat Janks to the curb.
  8. I agree with you. NYRs defense is atrocious though. There best dman is rated a 69.9. TJ is rated 76.7. Why does Janks and Backs get 6 years of development time and our best draft pick ever gets a season and a half?
  9. I just want to say 1st of all that I'm still pissed at the way 93 is being Utilized. He's not a goon he's a fast gritty play maker. NYR are in a transition stage and if you look at their defence ratings on dailyfaceoff it's brutal. If BT, dangled TJ and Sammy could we squeeze M. Zibanejad and M. Zuccarello whose an FA at the end of this season. So, essentially TJ for Zibanejad and Bennet for M. Zuccarello? Zibanejad RS 2nd line Right wing. Zuccarello left wing 3rd line.
  10. Yes, your right. Tons of scrambled play.
  11. Sammy should have 6 goals by now 3 waved off and one post. Neal should be the extra finisher on the 1st so that could put Lindholm on the second line with Chucky. IMO BP is working a lot with Sammy to get him back on track and I think BP likes him a lot. If BT wanted to bring in another playmaker into the fold maybe take a looksie at Mats Zaccarello he's 31 on a rebuilding team so, maybe he's available he'd work good with Sammy and Chucky. I think Sammy will take the 2nd line Center spot soon.
  12. Your idea of Sammy and Chucky together. Two guys that have unstoppable motors. I think would gel nicely.
  13. New arena and field house would employ 2000 construction people and add a huge trickle down effect on the economic activity in Calgary. Something, we need desperately right now. I've, said this before but, the MTS Center in Winnipeg holds 15400 people. Bettman didn't want Winninpeg but he let it slide. 14 year old arena and only 15400 people. No, crying from the jets owners. Murray Edwards who is a good dude made a lot of money off of Iggy. He's given more money away then anyone in Calgary.
  14. If, we could just find another Younger Dman like Gio. He covers everyone's Hash Rate that misses an assignment in the D-zone. He, digs out pucks in the corner in the D-zone when it's the centres job. Gets, the puck skates up the ice & hangs on to the puck until the last second gets walloped but makes a play then moves in and scores a goal. Never injured maybe once. No, one else on the D plays like that.
  15. The puck does die on his stick a lot. But, he's always going full tilt. He's, always so jacked up.
