  1. Well you're a smarter man than me RocDoc! A few years back I too decided to treat myself to a flames hoodie. But rather than refusing to pay the expensive postage I added more items to get better value for my postage dollars. I ended up buying a hoodie and a t-shirt for myself and a hoodie and a t-shirt each for both of my kids.
  2. My offer to Buffalo would be Tkachuk, Monahan, Bennett and this years second for Eichel and Okposo. I think we would have to take the cap dump to make the trade happen.
  3. With this thread clicking over to 1000 pages it reminded me of when it turned 747 and heartbreaker hijacked the thread with his planes. Good times! Happy birthday heartbreaker!
  4. Great article. Thanks for posting JTech.
  5. Personally I was hoping to see Tkachuk - Bennett - Dube Gaudreau - Monahan - Simon / Leivo Mangiapane - Backlund - Lindholm Lucic - Ryan - Nordstrom Number the lines however you like apart from the obvious 4th line.
  6. So let's say we offer Monahan, Hanifin and a first for Eichel and Buffalo counters with we want Tkachuk, Valimaki and a first. Do we still make the deal? I do.
  7. I have been thinking about this too and was thinking that Alexander Wennberg may be a good addition for the flames. Had a relatively poor season for Columbus with 25 points in 75 games and a minus 2 on the regular season and then was a healthy scratch for some playoff games, seemingly on the outer with Torts. He then goes to the world championships and has 10 points in 6 games for a plus 11. It makes me think he would thrive here in the company of our fellow Swedes. Also worth noting he was the only Swede for Columbus last season but they have added Gustav Nyquist since.
  8. I would make this trade hoping we get the 16/17 playoffs version of Pageau. Has struggled with injuries and form since then but a low risk move I believe for the 1.2m extra cap space.
  9. I don't think Schenn is an unrealistic target. I read recently the blues are planning to move Robert Thomas to 2nd line centre this season and Schenn to left wing. With RFAs Edmundson and Barbashev still to sign and only $5m in cap space, with one year left at $5.125m maybe Schenn gets moved for the extra cap space. Unfortunately for us neither team can take on extra cap in a trade. But in principle Schenn is a good target.
  10. What stands out to me on this list is how low Lindholm sits on the primary points list. 9th - below Mangiapane, Frolik, Ryan and Bennett. I think the bigger issue here though is that Jankowski didn't make the list at all. 3rd line centre is where we need an upgrade.
  11. To me the Stone buyout suggests there is no longer a trade market for Brodie. Frolik on the other hand should be a different story. 40 point guy, defensively responsible, cup winner and this season has a cap hit of 4.3m but his actual salary is only 3m. I would be very surprised if he is not moved for cap space.
  12. The devils currently have 16.9m in cap space with just RFA's Pavel Zacha and Will Butcher to sign. I would offer Frolik ++(maybe include Czarnik) to get Kyle Palmieri. I doubt they would be interested in Brodie. It would take an overpayment to get him but they are one of the few teams that have the space to do it. Palmieri has 2 years left at 4.65m per.
  13. An article on flames nation says the goalie was Parsons
  14. I really like Reimer as an option. Seems to have fallen out of favour in Florida with Montembeault being preferred for 11 games late in the season. Maybe slightly overpaid at 3.4m for 2 more years but good news that they may be willing to retain some and shouldn't cost a lot in trade. At 31 and with 9 seasons in the league he could provide that veteran influence that Rittich seemed to like with Smith. In 36 games this season he posted a 3.09 and .900 both down on his career 2.81 and .913 I think he is exactly what we are looking for as a 1b / backup if we are willing to run with Rittich as our guy which I think we should.
