Mike Vernon is standing up in that picture.
I actually worked with the Architect on his home. In addition to my fee proposal, I asked for an autographed Jersey - he laughed and said sure. Anyway, I still have it - never wore it, and probably never will. It's the only signed jersey I own.

Many people think it was this franchise that became an NHL one, but it wasn't.

The Atlanta Flames, sister team to the New York Islanders, went belly-up and was relocated to Calgary.

Atlanta, has blown it twice, yet again is being looked at as a future expansion City.

That's pretty cool. But it's probably way too small for you to wear anyway :wink:
Try to focus on 1 year from now...

Full melt down on Cowpuke. They want everyone traded, I mean everyone.

Johnny a whiner, spends too much time complaining. No heart. Afraid to get hit.

Monahan too slow, not a gamer. Avoids contact.

Taychook too slow for the playoffs. Great in the regular season but disappears when the speed and intensity pick up.

Neal needs to be bought out.

Defence too slow.

team too slow.

Team has no grit, playing afraid.

Peters out coached.

I almost feel sorry for them.











No I don't.
I agree with most of your items, except for the bolded comments. The team and the defense are not too slow - but they are playing against one of the fastest players in the game and he makes everyone look slow.
Sorry, I’m just taking quotes from Cowpuke, not making my own statements. I was mocking the board melt down :mrgreen:
The only HW the Canucks need

and the ref's still hate them

though depending what board you're reading, they may hate the leaves or the canucks moore.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

For a second, I thought Micky was going to point to himself in the old-timey team photo! I'm betting middle row, second from the right.

I think I heard somewhere that the Flamers did an open practice at the old Corral this past season. That's kinda cool, I imagine it would be a bit like getting to see the Canucks at the old Colosseum again. Or probably more accurately, it would be like seeing the Canucks at the PNE Forum...now that I think about it, who would want to go to that?

If the Flames loose tomorrow, will it be for our sins?

Just read the first page of a couple threads over there.....basically they want to trade most of their best players from the regular season and fire the coach. Let Smith go and bring in a different vet to play with Rittich. Oh and Gaudreau, despite being a total softie and lazy as shit should stick around and they should find a franchise 1C for him to play with.

:rofl: :rofl:

What else is cpuke saying? aha
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."
