Re: From Bountiful to Ponoka

Where would Hamonic fit in if he was a Canuck? I think he would be at least in the second pairing.

Re: From Bountiful to Ponoka

Calgary still has a lot of the facilities from the 1988 Olympics, and they are still being used and maintained. The IOC said the the Saddledome is fine for the games, so they wouldn't have to build a new arena specifically for the games. However, I think that the Calgary Bid would include a new aren...

Re: From Bountiful to Ponoka

There is going to be a big turn over in the Flames ownership over the next few years. Most of them are in their 80s. I imagine Riddell's share of the Ownership of the Flames will go to his kids - similar to McCaig's shares when he died. Murray Edwards is the young guy of the bunch and he's almost 6...

Re: From Bountiful to Ponoka

Sinkaruk wasn't going to make the Flames anyway. I don't know about Rychel, but I'm not expecting him to make the Flames. Anyway, looks like Granlund was a good pickup for the Canucks. Hunter is on his last chance to make the NHL - I think he's done.

Re: From Bountiful to Ponoka

Flames fans are enraged at Ryan Kesler for his comments to Ryan Johansen over at Bountiful. Something tells me Johansen probably laughed it off but that messagboard is right pissed about this. It's a long slow summer, so they just need something to complain about. It sounded more like a joke to me,...

Re: From Bountiful to Ponoka

Even with Neal, I still think they still need at least 1 more top 6 forward. As for Gio - I think he'll be fine next season (he's a fitness freak), but his best years are behind him. Good thing the Flames are deep in defensive prospects. I can see Andersen making the team next season, and Valimaki t...

Re: From Bountiful to Ponoka

The Flames can't afford to sit around and wait on those not-blue-chip goalies IMO. They did well in unloading problem child Hamilton... a good trade for them. Still, they seem like a bubble team to me for the foreseeable future. Not being an asshole, just an honest opinion from an outsider. Hey, if...

Re: From Bountiful to Ponoka

Ritich played fairly well when he was called up. I think he just needs another season or two and he'll be fine. The guy that should be great is Parsons - but then again........... Just look a Hellibuck (or however you spell it), in Winnipeg - he really improved drastically last season over the previ...

Re: From Bountiful to Ponoka

The flames have three decent goalie prospects Gillies and Ritich (one of which will be the backup in the upcoming season) and Parsons who is pegged to be the future goalie for the flames but he's a few years away. So, Smith is a stop gap goalie, but the Flames need at least one more good season out ...

Re: From Bountiful to Ponoka

Flames sign J. Neal. I like the player, but at 31 years old, the term is a bit too long. I think he will really help the flames for 2 or 3 years before he becomes an albatross. This signing should help the flames in the upcoming season. I'm a bit concerned about the goal tending - will Mike Smith ge...

Re: From Bountiful to Ponoka

I haven't been here in quite a while, but I thought I'd chime in with my view of the trade. I think it was a good trade for Calgary. I'm cautiously optimistic - after the Hamonic trade last year, which seemed like it was going to improve the team and get them farther into the playoffs, the team fail...

Re: From Bountiful to Ponoka

Bottom line is the Flames did get better. By adding a reasonable, slow, physical stay at home defender that would be a 5-6 guy on a contender but will play top four on the Flames. Sad. Well the Flames aren't a contender - they are rebuilding. They got a decent D man for spare parts. Nothing sad abo...
