  1. I know that this sounds stupid, and I think that we've had this conversation before, but I truly believe that Sam Bennett should change his number. First of all, I don't think 93 suits him, and second, he's not Doug Gilmour. Furthermore, and an aside, when Doug Gilmour scored the most important goal of his career, he was wearing 39. Anyway, I think Sammy might have better luck finding his game in a number like 15. 26 would work really well, too - but we've already got one of those. Love.
  2. You know, for what it's worth, 27 is my favourite number. For some of us, number selection is a big deal. I think for Milan, though, 17 is his first choice. It's been his number on every team except for Edmonton as it's retired (Jari Kurri). Love.
  3. Sounds good for Murray Edwards! And if the conditions reported above are correct - we definitely do not want that 3rd round pick. Love.
  4. I was pretty sad to learn that the sweetener wasn't Puljujarvi. I thought he might do well here. So what's our sweetener? To shed salary, we send out Lucic and Kylington for a fifth? Hopefully there's more to this picture, but I don't see this playing out in some way that brings an impact player back to Calgary. Confused. Probably not love.
  5. I realize that this isn't Flames news, but it seems worth mentioning because there are rumours linking the Flames to each of these players. TL/DR: Lucic for Ericsson was nixed by the latter. The trade included Puljujarvi as well. https://www.hockeyfeed.com/nhl-news/rumor-trade-between-the-oilers-and-canucks-was-blocked-by-a-player?fbclid=IwAR0zEZFaBsw7j0NUqmEdQTRrUXacNyN99etnrVue02NiDbR86cMJXmdr9pU Love.
  6. I don't disagree with you... but I was more upset about the Zucker thing. Love.
  7. Indeed. Furthermore, while I realize this is an unpopular opinion around here, I am totally confident that he's going to have a better season. I think that this past year was the outlier, and I suspect that he'll average around 40 points over the next few seasons. He's spendy, but double the production from last year, and it's no longer the worst contract in the league. Love.
  8. Holy smokes! It's Carty's birthday! Hopefully it's a good one, Man! 

    They don't have your name, but in a pinch, I've selected something similar. We'll use our imaginations. 


    1. Carty


      Thanks Heartbreaker...   It was a really good one...   :)

    2. Cowtownguy


      I always miss these threads. Glad to hear it was a gooder Carty.

    3. Carty


      Thanks Cowtown...   :)

  9. I'm not sure what to do with the first line, but assuming that they make no additional changes (which they definitely will), I think that you're right to move Lindholm to the second line. I'd do it like this, though: Tkachuk - Bennett - Lindholm I think that 28 and 93 can split faceoff duty similar to how they did it with Monohan last year, and saddling Dube with Backlund is a solid defensive option, and an excellent development opportunity. Love.
  10. I don't think that he's referring to Caster Semenya as she's intersex, and does not self identify. She's a woman that has naturally occurring higher levels of testosterone due to a physiological anomaly. I believe that he's referring more to stories like this, and like this, and like this... Love.
  11. 31 and 35 are Millennials... https://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2019/01/17/where-millennials-end-and-generation-z-begins/ Love.
  12. In my opinion, this is exactly right. This is the reason that I've always thought that the Avs were a bad first round matchup. We aren't very good at defending against players that come at us with a lot of speed. We've been feasted upon by the likes of McDavid, Petterson, and MacKinnon for a long time. I realize that every team struggles to defend against those guys, but surprisingly, they don't always get on the scoresheet - so someone is doing something better than we are. Love.
  13. Love this song. In 2006, as an aside, I tried to do a guitar cover of it, but never finished it because it was my first foray into the world of drum loops, and they sounded terrible. Nevertheless, now that I'm an old man with no shame, I'll share with you, for the first time, my dregs. Love.
  14. Yeah, that said - the Jackets could take a 3-0 series lead, and be up 5-0 in the third period of Game 4 - and the Lightning could still win. I wouldn't write that team off until the final buzzer. Love.
