Don't know any of those guys beyond Parsons and Ruzicka.

So we are on our way to the final week. Quite honestly I think this Tckachuk contract issue might open a spot for Czarnik to slide into at the beginning of the season. I am also starting to think that perhaps the Flames think they can get away with Bennett (in place of Tkcachukjak) and may give him his final tryout before his next contract. Don't see how Dube doesn't make it. I don't see any of the PTOs making it. D's not really a question. I am sure there is more to this depending on contract status but I don't think this looks much different than last year.

Talbot's play has been concerning. If the goaltending is weak that feeds a fragile group.

My focus is going to turn on the Vets this week and see how they are responding after being ass smacked by Colorado. See if they have turned the page and their heads are ready.

It'll be interesting to see who gets more cost-savings in the end: the short term guys or the long term guys. I think the era of the 10-year deal might be over, though.

I do have to register a minor gripe with this team. Every other Canadian team seems to broadcast all their preseason games. CGY and EDM don't seem to feel that preseason is worth broadcasting. While all this appears to be moot with the last week of preseason approaching I do feel its worth mentioning that the same attention to hockey doesn't seem to be represented in the province of Alberta!

Hell even Jersey and the Avs have been represented fully via the package.

Jon Gillies on waivers...ends up being the next version of Brent Krahn/Leland Irving.


Which lead me to this great write up about the Flames goalie drafting history (in a nutshell not very good):

How a Battle of Alberta doesn't find its way onto Sportsnet in Alberta is beyond me. Last Preseason game on a Saturday night....nope put on Survivor or some stupid shit. Clean it up Calgary!

Surprisingly they sign Zac Rinaldo to a 2 way deal.

https://www.nhl.com/flames/news/flames- ... -309560384

Rinaldo sent down and Quine on Waivers as of today.

Here we go........the heat is literally on this team starting in Colorado. Make or break time.

You have to be shitting me.....How did Dube not make it?

https://www.nhl.com/flames/news/future- ... -309599084

But I guess who was he supposed to knock out Czarnik? But hey ......Tobias Rieder and Kylington made it so.......

Brad says its better for him to play in Stockton then not play on the big club.......whatever.............. :zoid:

He had 2 goals against EDM the final night apparently he also had a good camp but I couldn't tell you that since Calgary doesn't like to broadcast its pre-season games.

The Kylington thing I can understand as he played on a pairing with Rasmus when they were younger.

I am assuming the dead weight will work itself out as the season starts and we see Dube rather promptly.

IMO this game in Denver is a must win right out of the gate.

Doughty vs. Tkachuk is quite the rivalry.

Some background: https://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/tka ... y-nhl-use/

Last night, Doughty scored the winner in OT and gestured to the Calgary crowd. Great stuff.

Whoa...may want to forget about last night. Especially this goal.

https://www.nhl.com/video/reaves-cashes ... c-69603903

Bennett and Jankowski collide just inside the blue line, which leads to a turnover and a soft-as-hell goal given up by "Big Save Dave" to...Ryan Reaves.
