    I don't think it makes a difference. Why pull Elliott at this point? Either he goes on a tear and we win 4 in a row or we're out of the playoffs. It doesn't matter who's in net.
  2. I moved to Australia a few weeks ago, but I think it's easier to follow the Flames from here than from NY.

      Which part of Aus? The only issue with game times is work meetings being scheduled during games but I do my best to move them around to not conflict with my priorities..

      I'm in Sydney. Thankfully, I can usually avoid work conflicts and just watch the game on my ipad or phone.

      Happy Birthday JT. Representing Alberta north.

  5. I can not be prouder of where this team went this year. In October, if you asked if I'd be watching Flames hockey on May 11, I would have laughed at you. But here we are. This team has a bright future ahead and will only get better. I can't wait for next season.

      Absolutely. Been a great year for the Flames.

      It's funny, but I thought Johnny was going to get about 67 points, based on his NCAA career. I never thought he would become such a key guy throughout the season, though. Key, as in leading the Flames to comebacks, scoring key goals, taking the punishment that the NHL dishes out. With him, Mony, and Bennett, we have our future franchise players. That doesn't even talk about the value of Brodie and Gio's play, which was stellar.

      Now that the disappointment from yesterday has worn off we're still on a high from the season. Now the real work begins for off ice staff. Make us even better.

    I feel bad for Mac. Actually, I feel bad for a lot of players on this team. Mac is a quality backup, but this team is constantly placing players in positions where they are bound to fail.

    I'm calling shenanigans! Mac just doesn't have the rebound control to be a starter. Let's see what Ramo can do!

    It's funny that in a league where success is determined by Stanley Cups, you discount goaltenders who have won and add value to those goaltenders who you claim are "athletic." You know why Stanley Cup teams tend to have goalies that are positional instead of athletic? It's simple, positional goalies are consistent from night to night. The team in front of them knows what they are going to get and can adjust their play to suit the needs of the goalies. Let's take it one step further. Here's the losing (second place) team in those seasons goaltenders: 2013 Rask - Finland 2012 Brodeur - Canada 2011 Luongo- Canada 2010 Leighton - Canada 2009 Osgood - Canada 2008 Fleury - Canada 2007 Emery - Canada 2006 Roloson - Canada So what is that? 14 goalies from North America who have started in a Stanley Cup finals since the lockout in comparison to 2 (I may have missed a goalie). It's nice that you make all these value statements about North American goalies, but it looks to me that when it comes to winning cups--the only thing that matters in my books--North American goalies are rather apt for the task.

    Umm, Stanley Cup champion goalies since the lockout: 2013 Crawford - Canada 2012 Quick - USA 2011 Thomas - USA 2010 Niemi - Finland 2009 Fleury - Canada 2008 Osgood - Canada 2007 Giguere - Canada 2006 Ward - Canada I think your point is moot.

      thanks for all the birthday wishes, guys :-)

  11. Everyone i n Calgary, please stay dry. My thoughts are with you guys. Devastated to see the state of my city.

  12. Saw Corb Lund in NYC last night. Great show, though he wasn't to interested in interacting with his fans.

  13. At this point I'm certain I'm going to die in a hurricane, and it's going to be during an NHL lockout. Curse you NHL!

      Great to hear. I was born in Suffern and still have relatives in NY so I had a mild interest in Sandy (mild because I haven't seen them since I was apparently 4....).

      Plus it'd be unfortunate for the Flames to have to send out a presser stating that one of their forum mods died in a tropical storm on the East Coast. ;)

  14. Feaster was batting 1.000 in my mind until the Stempniak signing. Why?
