Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Another thing on the Lucic trade, while he agreed to waive his NMC to go to Calgary, Calgary had to agree to abide by his NMC moving forward. In other words he still has a full NMC. He will be required to be protected in the expansion draft however there is plenty of time to convince him to waive i...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

wouldn't it be ironic if Neal gets 60+ points. This is one of my biggest fears. Apparently there is only a 10% salary retention by Edmonton, which is not nearly enough. Also hearing that there isn't even a conditional draft pick involved. Fuck Treliving - what the fuck - was he drunk when he made t...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

This one is a head scratcher. Neal has 4 years left at $5.75M. Looch has 4 years left at $6M. Neal stands a better chance of keeping up with Edmonton's top-6 forwards in terms of speed, but that's about it. I feel like Calgary is making out like gangbusters here. They get stronger, scarier (in the ...

Re: 2019/20 Pacific Division

On Calpuck, they are claiming that Lucic has been traded to Calgary for Neal. There is probably more involved, including salary retention by the Oilers for Lucic. On the face of it, I hate this trade. There better be something more to it, otherwise, this is the worst trade Treliving has made since b...

Re: 2019/20 Pacific Division

From my view point, I think they need another first line player on offense, and a decent goalie, before I would consider them to be a deep playoff team. As good as Gaudreau is, I don't think he is the type of player you build around - he is more of a guy that is added to a true franchise player (ie ...

Re: 2019/20 Pacific Division

The Flames are still going to trade one or more of Frolik, Brodie, Jankowski or Neal (don't see anyone wanting Neal). I think Brodie will fetch a decent return. Frolik might get a 2nd or 3rd round pick. I hope they keep Jankowski as he has turned into a great penalty killer. The key is what they wi...

Re: 2018-2019 Playoffs. Round three

Carolina have started to play tentatively at the wrong time. They might get some moxy back before it's over but it won't be enough. If Brind'Amour's really is good, and I think he is, the Canes will be even better next year and maybe get home ice up to the third round. It looks pretty good for them...

Re: 2018-2019 Playoffs: Round 2

Good Riddance to the Avs - I've developed a real hate for that team. Unfortunately, they are going to be good next season.

Wouldn’t that just piss off Flames fans in Avs dropped out in four. But it won’t happen. Still, fun to think about it.
I won't be pissed off if the Avs drop out in four. I actually expect that to happen.
