      Insults/Name-calling will not be tolerated   11/19/2016

      It's great to see the boys earning their way into the playoffs this season (barring a Colorado-would-be-proud collapse).  What a night-and-day difference from way back in November.   With the playoffs, we typically see more traffic/visitors on the site, usually from the opposing team's fanbase (especially from the Oilers).  This is just a reminder that stating your opinion is fine (it's exactly what these forums are for), and friendly, good-natured ribbing is OK, however, name-calling and insults will still be a major no-no and cause for the Banhammer to warm up.  This applies to all new guests and visitors as well: you're more than welcome to join the party, but civility is house rule around here.   All insults/name-calling will be met with a zero-tolerance approach, regardless if you are a new person to the forums, or have been around since these forums began.   First-offenses will be met with a moderator-needs-to-approve-your-post for 3 days Second offenses will be met with a week-long suspension Third offenses will result in a perma-ban   If you have any questions regarding this policy, or would like to voice your concern about it, you are absolutely free to contact me directly.   We all love this team, and this game.  Let's all hop on the Bandwagon, enjoy a few beverages, and ride this wave of excitement as far as we can.   --  Kulstad

Hello fellow Flames fans... How is everyone surviving during this lengthy lockout? Sure hope we can all be discussing more hockey on here in the next little while.

More on topic, the more and more I look at the flames roster/prospects, I am beginning to see a common trend of small left hand players in the wing and centre position.

For instance, tanguay, cammy, cervenka, hudler, Backlund (not as small) are all certain roster spots and left hand forwards below or at 6 feet. Prospects include Baerstchi, gaudreau, granlund, horak, possibly more I'm forgetting as well.

Now ill be honest, I do enjoy having each of these players on the team and I'm excited to see all of them play. However, are there too many of them? Most NHL rosters have a few smaller forwards and a lot of them are quite successful. I can not deny that fact but I'm worried we have an over abundance in that category.

Point is, I see this team is attempting a new culture. Smaller, skilled forwards to try and increase offensive production. We have lacked a lot of offense in the last few years and I hope this can change. But will it? On the right handed side, the team is not much bigger. We will be seeing a very small Flames team in the next few years. Success, stalemate, failure???

I don't usually read into statistics as some on here, nor do I have the time too. But I'd beg to differ, because I feel the Flames potential squad could extremely small. A little concerning, but who knows I guess.
