I kinda like Rittich. Dude's got some attitude reminiscent of Roy. I'm sure 3living would be thrilled if he bumped Smith down to #2.

Rittich looked really solid last night on the road in Montreal. He's 26 and undrafted, but sometimes goalies take a while to tighten up their fundamentals. The Flames might have their succession plan already in place. He'll get a lot of starts this season, at least, to keep Smith fresh.

I seriously had to look this up....saying I didn't realize Hamonic was still missing proves how noticeable he actually is....and how easily Andersen and Vallamaki can replace him. The only thing I have noticed is how shitty TJ Brodie plays D....even when he is with Gio. I think in years past he has gotten away with it but now that the talent around him is becoming better his plateaued game is in question.

Anyway

Travis Hamonic (facial fracture) has been taken off the injured reserve list.
Hamonic hasn't played since Oct. 3. He had a goal and 11 points in 74 contests last season. Oct 25 - 3:10 PM

I'm tellin' ya, Don Maloney convinced Brad Treliving to trade for Mike Smith so that he could snag his job. Crafty...

James Neal benched....ouch....Peters has his work cut out here. At 31 getting paid 5 Mil a year I wouldn't care if you paid me or not. I don't think benching helps. Let him play on the top line PERIOD don't care how Lindholm is playing. The new Brouwer....oh god I hope not. This could be Treliving's nail in the coffin.

Mike Smith is about at the end of his career.....but that was easy to see going into this year and unaddressed.

Why in God's name is Calgary continuing to waste their time with Mike Smith? He literally cost them the game against the Habs tonight. Rittich has been worlds better, just make the goddamn switch. They're trying to avoid the dreaded "goaltending controversy." Well...there isn't one, it's clear who's better and who sucks.

Bad game AGAIN from Mike Smith. Its time to see what's up in Rittich. I take back what i said about Lindholm....leave that guy alone.....James Neal is going to have to figure it out. That GWG was atrocious.

Matthew Tckathucckck irritated the shit out of the oilers on Saturday night. Full on turtle mode when Kassian started chasing him.

I'm an old school guy and I don't like the turtle but the NHL has changed over the years and the folks crying about Tckachuk doing that can't have it both ways.

He doesn't have to fight Kassian or anyone for that matter....and the new NHL does not give other goonery types the right to take him to task for it. Sorry folks if you don't like it you should have spoke up many years ago.

Apparently Tkachuk got someone in the Edmonton media so riled up that during Bill Peters' scrum he yelled out "Your guy turtled!"

Let's not act like Kassian is some Man of Honour or something. He tried starting shit like three or four times in the Edmonton/Colorado game, crashing the net well after the whistle and then getting all huffy when he got manhandled by the defensemen. :lol:

Honestly I don't think guys dropping their gloves does anything to deter irritants like Keith's oldest boy anyway. It never slowed down guys like Matt Cooke or Esa Tikkanen, it wouldn't do anything here either.

Speaking as an Avs fan I'm quite all right with the Flames continuing to trot out Mike Smith.
