I see some sporting outlet has picked these guys to win the Pacific and go as far as the Western Conf finals............still not sure which publication this is...probably the same one calling for the cup parade in Toronto.


WHOAH! Let's reign in those horses and set the bar low!

What's Postive? Addition by Subtraction! No soft Dougie, No Bouwerplay, No Gutlacksaosnaaoson, instead we have Lindholm, Neal, Hannafin and a pleasant surprise Czarnik.

There's some other dudes like Derek Ryan and Anthony Peluso...but don't know where they fit yet.

I'd like to see a lot of kids hold permanent spots this year.....Mangiapane, Rasmussen, Valimaki.......

Mike Smith in net still...which is still a wild card.....Rittich is still back there as well as Gilles........Jeff Glass was just invited to a PTO hopefully to push those two.

Monahan is done having 15 1/2 surgeries and Brodie doesn't have anywhere to go but back up or out.

What can Johnny do and can James Neal feast like a Pirahna off of Johnny's playmaking?

Is there secondary scoring?.....yes if Czarnik is who I think he is.

Sam Bennett could be on the block especially if Mike Smith gets hurt.

So where does this all go?

The Flames weren't very good last year and they lacked heart..........their home record was terrible and the PP was a f'n disaster. I would expect those things to improve this year under Peters. The direction seems to be back on track and as a fan I am willing to forget last years shit show due to management's acknowledgement and attempt at fixing it.

I've got the Flames making the playoffs....anywhere from 6-8....I don't think its a 100 point team but I might expect them to get out of the 1st round this year.

3Lives is on his last one now!

With increased forward depth and new young additions in Noah Hanifin and Elias Lindholm signed long term, Treliving feels his club is ready for a bounce back campaign. The Flames’ architect even declared this year’s crop of talent entering training camp “is the deepest group that’s been here since I’ve been here.”

"How shall we, the murderers of all murderers, comfort ourselves?"
