2021 Calgary Flames NHL Draft

Recommended Posts

Size in their prospect pool is definitely a deficiency of this team, so adding two big forwards with some skill and lots of room for growth isn't necessarily a bad thing in this draft.

 

There are going to be a lot of hidden gems in these rounds.

The size and skill combo is nice here. I’m all for getting bigger but not at the sacrifice of skill. Flames have struck a nice balance with these last two picks.

Yuuuup.   Which is basically a complete waste of a pick.   There is always that chance he surprises us, it's just extra hard to do that on LW.

 

Like @travel_dude says though, the pitchforks stay in the shed until the draft is done.


now we have hindsight to fall back on in a few years, so we can say hindsight is 20-20 and kids are hard to predict.

The pandemic conspired to make the best players go out of order.

Traded to LA?


Bummer. I have all these plans for today, and I'm waiting on this pick so that I can get started. Bastards... 

Love.

Same. Carolina has become my least favorite team today.

Wouldn’t have a problem with multiple trade downs now. Keep collecting lottery tickets in this type of draft.

So, no D drafted yet?

2nd goalie just before our next pick.

Name would create confusion?

 

Lol it would have been funny.

 

I get it though, really.   there's no point in drafting a player if they're not a LHS forward.

Well, we lost that IMHO, they drafted a guy with 29 KHL games under his belt and he's not an over-ager.

 

That said, we were probably going to lose anyway as we would have drafted a LW.

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.

Well from some of the highlights his foot speed sure isn’t slowing his goals down any…
