  1. Hello 2018! Hope everyone's doing well!

  2. Mock Draft made it in time for the 1st pick! Congrats to Nico Hischier, what a rise for the prospect over the 12 months.

  3. Part 3 of my Final Rankings are up! I wasn't able to finish everything in time, so if you have any questions please ask and I will do my best to answer or respond accordingly!

  4. Part 2 of my Final Rankings has been posted! That's my top 31, with more coming (probably).

     

    If you have any questions, ask away!

  5. Part 1 of my Final Rankings have been posted! Feel free to fire away....

  6. Left for a few weeks, came back to a WHOLE NEW WORLD

      It's just a Sominex-induced dream.  It will last for approximately 8 years.  Relax and enjoy the ride :-)

      It looks a lot different. You missed some not fun stuff.

  7. 2017 Draft Watch List is up!

  8. @Kulstad, I can't login via the Flames forum login button even after changing my password through nhl.com. Right now I can only log in via nhl.com, should I be concerned or will there be some sort of fix for bugs like this as the summer rolls on?

      @FF52 Man I still remember the "old" old boards, back before the switch to the current IPBoard software (I wanna say back in 08, but I'm not sure anymore). The good old days lol

      No kidding Crzy. Man we lost some good people after every change. It was funny but right after I joined the Flames board I won a t-shirt & some of the oldtimers were POed that a newbie with my name was 1 of the 1st winners. Then I started predicting the next winners (some right) & it was like "pick me" (lol).

      oh yeah.. we all forget the spammers that made our lives miserable ?

  9. Spent 2 days trying to log into this account before learning I had to reset my PW through nhl.com. Would have been handier to say that instead of "The security code you supplied did not match the one displayed, a new code has been generated, please try again", though.

      Thanks! Saved me two days of hardship and hair pulling! I noticed your post entirely by chance though. I couldn't agree more. What kind of diabolical mind thinks up such totally useless error messages? Remind me not to up-vote whomever was responsible for that lunacy?

    2. Kulstad

      that would be NHL.com and MLBAM. I've had the exact same isssue, and just got it resolved yesterday.

  10. Whelp, just had my contract terminated yesterday, so I'll have a bit of extra time on my hands for a few days. Guess it's time to organize my draft lists.

      Haha thanks guys, I needed a pick-me-up. Feels weird having time during the day but I will do my best to have my draft stuff updated as soon as possible.

      Sorry to hear it but you were missed here.

      Definitely missed, Better times ahead Crzydrvr!

  11. Happy holidays! Confirmed I'm still alive and still following prospects with aplomb. I'm wondering if I should start a quick and dirty midterm draft thread, would that be something worth reading?

      We've missed you Bud. Go for it.

      It hit me when I saw FF52's name that I've been on this site long enough to remember back before the "new" IPBoard software came into effect. Cheers to you for still kicking around, old man :P

      On a separate note, it seems there's light interest so I'll be spending the next couple of weeks putting together some semblance of coherent thought for the draft. Right off the bat, it's Matthews and Chychrun for me at 1-2, in that order. And it's a wide gap b...

      For Sure always a great read!!!

  12. Oh boy....GM Don Sweeney making it real easy to hate him. Zach Senyshen is an excellent player, but man he's really off the board with names like Matt Barzal, Colin White and Kyle Connor still on the board.

    1. travel_dude

      travel_dude

      Did the ghost of Feaster take over Sweeney? That trade and the subsequent pick will be downfall of the GM. Not today, but sometime soon.

    2. Flyerfan52

      Flyerfan52

      I rather like Sweeney right now. He gave us Hamilton for nada. Boston fans can hate on him but TB rolled a few picks for a player better than we could expect @ 15. I think I'll send Sweeney a Christmas card.

  13. Sweet, sweet victory. It's been so long since I've seen the playoffs that I didn't allow myself to get my hopes up for fear of disappointment, but it feels good to be a fan for just one day.

      I like to pretend I'm professional and wouldn't let my feelings get in the way of a good objective viewpoint.

      Of all the years since the last playoff appearance, this one "felt" like we were in position to make it. When US Thanksgiving came and went, and we were in the top 8, I knew we would do it. During the 8-game losing streak, I felt we had a bit of a cusion, so it was still going to happen. When Johnny scored 3 goals to tie the Kings, I knew he was going to make the difference. Other teams, other years didn't have that. The Hudler/Mony/Johnny line was money.

      I'm with you Crzydrvr, I refused to let myself go down that emotional rollercoaster and I am still in pleasant disbelief that we've made it.

      It's great to be a fan here again

  14. My final rankings are up! Only the last mock draft left to go!

  15. Watching MacKinnon play in the playoffs is a treat....there are players that step up in the postseason, and then there's Nathan MacKinnon.

    1. DirtyDeeds

      DirtyDeeds

      Fun series to watch indeed. Seems Minny is having trouble with the Avs speed.

    2. The_People1

      The_People1

      I would trade Monahan + 4 wins in 2012/13 for Mackinnon. Who wouldn't??

    3. conundrumed

      conundrumed

      MacKinnon operates at such a high-tempo so well, really is something to see.

  16. Midterm rankings are up! Also, for those of you who have Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/jessica.strowbridge.9/posts/10153673475675467:0

      The great thing about sports is the way it brings people together....treating the fans right would be a priority for me if I was a GM. :)

      Are you talking Tier 1 or Tier 2 fans Crzy?

  17. Sabres relieve Darcy Regier and Ron Rolston of their duties, effective immediately. Ted Nolan interim head coach, Pat LaFontaine President of Hockey Ops.

  18. "What are we doing today Jay?" "The same thing we do everyday John....try to take over the world."

  19. http://oilers.nhl.com/club/page.htm?id=33071 may just be the best biography I've ever read. That second paragraph was gold.
  20. If you're reading this Iggy, I want you to know that the only reason I found my passion for hockey was watching you and Kipper in 04, and that may have saved my life a few years later. You inspired a whole generation of kids, and that spark will definitely burn for a long time. There is no one who ever meant more to this franchise than you. And for that, I can only say thanks for everything. Keep it classy.

  21. I can see why Sergei Kostitsyn is in Barry Trotz's doghouse, that play on EDM's second goal was just brutal.

    1. The_People1

      The_People1

      Quite possibly the most brainless play i've ever seen, ever. Goes in a line change while defending a 2 on 2? Who does that?

  22. Not gonna lie, but some of the posts in the "Start Irving" thread probably tempted fate a little....

      Well Feaster tempted that same fate when he put both Karlsson and Irving on waivers. He tempted it again by trading Karlsson.

    3. DirtyDeeds

      DirtyDeeds

      This might be fates way of getting Taylor a chance...we just signed him

    4. Coolie

      Coolie

      Taylor deserves a chance.

  23. I want to know who's the idiot at Yahoo headquarters who made it so you can't edit your fantasy lineup in advance....so I can punch him in the face. Seriously. Do I look like the kind of guy who has time to spare each day guaranteed in the early morning to edit my fantasy roster so that Sidney Crosby isn't on the flippin' bench for his 3 point games?

    1. Canada15

      Canada15

      My Yahoo pools are set 2 weeks in advance. =)

      Go to my team, and you should be able to view day by day line ups... Remember to save your line up each day!

      Note: Every time you make a roster change (free agent, trade, etc) your line ups will be changed and you will have to set your line up in advance once again.

  24. Have I offended the hockey gods or what? I've seen maybe 20 wins in 2 seasons watching the Flames. I'm starting to get really PO'ed because I can't quickly flip on SN or TSN or CBC to catch 3 minutes of a Flames game without having them get scored on.

  25. Happy Holidays to all you awesome people. :) I'll try to have the midterm report cards up by the first week of January. Until then, cheers mates!
