2021 Calgary Flames NHL Draft

Recommended Posts

Montreal making that first round pick.

The kid even asked to be withdrawn from the draft.

If he ever plays for MTL, I'm sure there will be a lot of negative press.

William Strömgren, LW this is what is said about him from SBNation and this is the bottom line not the whole right up 

 

This is a pick that should be based on skill and tools and not particularly results — Strömgren’s transition numbers and expected numbers are just straight up bad.

Tottaly agree that is my point that rule is so stupid and should not be in  the NHL now I am hearing something about college players getting paid ? Is this true?

Not paid by the university.  They can profit off their name and image.  They can sign endorsements and get money for appearances and autographs and stuff like that.  But again nobody who gets drafted is forced to sign with their team.  Glen Gawdin chose not to sign with St. Louis should he be have been forced, teams can choose not to sign draft picks should they be forced, you can't just make a rule for one league.

Yup.

 

You know, though.....  I'm going to say what many are thinking, it's kind of my role.

 

It was a stupid thing for him to do and it was not fair to that girl and behaviour like this really is unacceptable.    I don't think any of this can be disputed.

 

But.  A little perspective.

 

We've come a long ways since Calgary won a cup with an accused child molester.

 

It was consensual sex and I think we will see the video was consensual too.  He's not the first human to produce or watch or share normal adult porn.

 

In the press, the girl said the "only thing she ever wanted was an apology" but the thing is she got that right away so...   the things she said away from the press are probably more accurate:  "I want to ruin this guy's career".     I don't think she's a bad person either, she's not out for money, but she is pissed at him and has chosen to be malicious about it because she knows she has the power to even the score.   And that's probably a good and fair thing.

 

Without a doubt, this guy has received more negativity than she ever will in her life.  And rightfully so.

 

But does an 18 year old kid become unsalvagable because the media says so?

 

How many players would be left in the NHL if we removed every guy that shared a sex pic and identified the girl with his buddies?      

 

Also,,

 

In female sports....   if we removed every female who shared with her friends the identify of who she was sleeping with....would there be any women left in sport?

 

 

My guess is this guy Will realize he made a mistake and Will rectifiy it and Will give back to the community.    The bigger question is if he has the skills to make it to the NHL.

Personally imo  you dont make  a mistake like that and be allowed to play in the nhl there are consequences for serious things like that and it is unacceptable period

I am hoping Dylan Duke is available at our pick. Small but he is a goal scorer, dog on a bone type player.

Well, SB is not my idea of a great source of content.

The player's draft rank is anywhere from 35 to 54, so it's not like it was a big reach.

Could he perhaps have been picked in the 3rd round?

Absolutely, but then again we might not have gotten him.

He was BPA according to our list, so who really knows.

Conner Roulette is another solid pick at this point.


Feels like a solid gamble

Both Roulette and Duke seem like Treliving picks, smaller but stocky, but compete levels are their calling cards

I don;t think the press really matters.  You have a player that wanted to walk away from the draft and avoid this for awhile.  Maybe that is a wise decision on his part or a way to avoid the negative stuff.  MTL says we don't care about it.  Not important to us.

If we go with a defenseman Brent Johnson would be a solid pick. Good skater, offensive defenseman.

Cole Huckins?

Haven't heard that name much

 

Cragg Button seems to like him at 71, so I guess it makes some sense.

Drafted right after us, an extremely talented goalie already succeeding in the KHL.

 

Good thing we dodged that bullet.

So, no D drafted yet?

2nd goalie just before our next pick.

Name would create confusion?

Flames continue to add size. Not a flashy pick but a solid one especially in a draft like this one. Power forward type who seems to thrive on the forecheck. Good two way numbers too. 
 

upside not really there but lots to like.
