    1st Line Center
  1. t This guy plays a Pronger style game.Yes,its an early comparison but check out his play at the world juniors.I think the scouts soured on him when he fired his stick in the crowd after a OT lose.To me it showed the "@#$% I hate losing" side of him.Great late round pick...Glad he had a good year..Hell be front and centre at the prospect camp..Good post Mess..!!
  2. This is the WRONG place to try and find anything positive about the Flames...Love it..,the rivalry is alive and well..The most important thing is both hockey smart fan bases like the direction their clubs are going and are behind their teams...Im actually finding a soft spot for the Flames because they are ALBERTA based..It has to do with the insane political landscape of our country..Its time for Stanley to make his way back to our province and stay for a long stretch..Itll help us maintain our "most popular province "status within Canada..
  3. Cracknell,Kassian,Marron,Kharia,Hendricks....Yipes..dont skate around with your head down against the Oilers for the rest of the year.
  4. And this guys and girls is how you can spend 1-2 million dollars in 2 seconds.
  5. This guy played some solid hockey for the USA in international events like the under 18(winning gold} and the WJC.He was a stand out in their developement program leading all Dmen in points.23 yrs old,his age fits right in with the core.The Oilers might of found something in this guy..Welcome Adam Clendening to OIler Country..!!
  6. So lets see...The guy played with Hall in Winsor, winning it all at least once. Taylor vouched for the guy or there wouldn't of been a deal..This is a HUGE opportunity for Kassian.Contract year as well as a chance to earn a roster spot on a team with an exciting future. So you've got a 24 yr, old power forward,thats has had some success in the NHL,giving it his all to give his career a boost..BIG TIME..This has got the makings of a storyline with a happy ending..And to this I say.."WELCOME TO OILER COUNTRY ZACK"..!!!.
  7. Froliks goal..at the 8 second mark....that was the Austin Matthews goal..Yes...Itll cost them big time.Fluck now...pay HUGE later.
  8. As of today...would any Oiler fan trade Hamilton for Reinhart.? Even straight up, never mind being locked in to Hamiltons contract for eternity..Yipes.!!
  9. This team must of set a record for one goal loses last year under a total crap coach.Just another year of age on a young team like this could make the difference of a winning or losing season.With the new additions,a new coach,and a new mentality this IS a way better club right now..The hay days were the hay days,there was NEVER a more exciting club to pull for in the history of the NHL.This team has a shot to be just as good or a close second.Either way they are both OIler teams..Just drop the puck already and let the naysayers and haters weep.
  10. The Oilers are always hated.They were hated more when the Stanley Cup lived here pretty well full time and will continue to be as the wins start getting chalked up.The best answer to a hater is "Get in Line." Looking forward to the 3 on 3 overtimes in the future...decisions decisions....McDavid,Hall,Nuge,could create a few scoring chances..
  11. Im all for giving him a shot with the new coaching regime.The guys got something to prove and has shown some incredible talent in the past.You don't lead the AHL in points ,as a defenceman to boot, without some amazing offensive skill..Lets not forget a college career that had 30 teams courting him as a UFA.The past is the past,its the future that counts...Congrats on the signing Justin !!!
  12. For the 1st time in a long time both fan bases are liking where their teams are and whos representing the teams logo.the rivalry is officially back on.I like the fact that Alberta is going to be a way tougher place to get out of with any points.
  13. Congrats Dougie...Welcome to "The Land of The Giants"....pretty well 6mill for 6 years. Now THATS a good raise.Sets the bar for other players.I wonder what Bouma and Ferland will want later today.Those guys both impressed me last year..Mohahan,Gaudreau,and Gio next year.....
  14. Tks Flyers Fan on the General Fanager tip...check it out boyz...It on the favorite page as of now.
  15. Cave Flames.Cave...Youd look pretty stupid bringing this to arbitration....7 million for 7 years.And the keys to the worlds biggest maxi pad of course.
