  1. Peters kept his team playing the same way as the regular season and didn't adjust. Bednar exploited a weakness and out coached Peters. Peters, didn't have an answer.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. I always have liked Mony. But, he folds like a cheap lawn chair under pressure. 82 games of 1st line Center pressure is exhausting to him. He, didn't match Mckinnons emotion and drive. True, 1st line centres that carry it every game and playoffs are a freak of nature.
  7. Our speed was on display. Then, the Avs have 3 guys collapsing in front of the net. Maybe, counter with a puck carrier slamming into them like bowling pins? Get in close, shoot then hit for the rebound.
  8. Getzlaf would be awesome. Leave sunny Anaheim? But, maybe he will want to give back to his junior team in the form of helping the flames.
  9. Colorado collapsing in front of the net like that. How do u counter that? Maybe, just get a full head of steam with the puck and bull doze them like bowling pins. Which would Create loose pucks in front?
  10. I think Mony buckles under 82 games of pressure. Which is weird cause he carried his junior team for 3 years. I, couldnt and not many can handle the pressure of a pro league for 82 games. He, might need a veteran grey beard Center to lean on in an 82 game season.
  11. Wish Sammy could of became our first line Center. Luv the Grit.
  12. Why didn't anyone run Grubauer? Nothing to lose. Stirr it up. It's playoff hockey. Throw caution to the wind when your down that much.
  13. Good possession player. But, big game moments aren't his thing. Why, didnt he top shelf that shot in game 4 in OT? He, had all day Grrrr!
