  1. Yeah, you grabbed him the same time I grabbed him in AllStars. I thought about NAHANA about an hour later and you'd already grabbed him.
  2. Yes, I think so. Even if the Flyers change nothing else. But if they make some of the additions they should, missing the playoffs would be epic failure. Kind of like Tampa in the first round failure.
  3. I don't know how to tell you this, but I have your first pick. You're picking with Pipers' pick, so 12th, I think. We should probably move this elsewhere so this stays a Calgary thread, but the goalie thing is something you'll probably need to wait until camp (or after some trade/signing in the offseason) to figure out. Been there, too.
  4. I don't think so. I just think they were offensively cold some down the stretch and their goaltending failed. This one was vastly less a surprise to me than Tampa (In fact, I have to point out again that I called Colorado in this one--but only because I've gotten nearly every other series wrong. Well, and because if you look above, I was the only one that called Colorado). But people like Lindholm were cold down the stretch and Gaudreau does his disappearing act every year in the playoffs. Plus, I didn't like what their goalies were doing. i just think things became unhinged for them the last 15-20 games. I also wonder if they need to think about bringing in some big game players. Their stars seem to shrink when the lights get brighter.
  5. I agree. This was a dumb call. Honestly, Rittich scared me down the stretch, so I don't know if it would have ultimately changed things. I think the dumb move, probably, was not shoring up that position at the deadline. In other news, I really do wonder about your goalie keeper in NAHANA.
  6. Yes, I'd do this on a two-year term. He can swing to right wing, too, so there's room to adjust if someone else catches fire in the fall (Frost, Vorobyov, Rubstov, etc.). Plus, I really just like the 2-year term. I'm not sure I actually like the JVR-Little Joe--Jake line. I mean, maybe. Maybe it's just the presence of Jake, but it really doesn't inspire excitement for me. I do like the look of a Lindblom/Patrick/Connolly line. I'd almost kind of like a different 4C and swing Laughton to left wing. I still don't like Scott at center. Then have Raffl be the 13th guy. All in all, if we can figure out a team defense structure (including, but not limited to, the defensemen), it's not a horrible lineup.
  7. I know by low sell high, but this particular argument makes me wonder why I want to throw in for a guy who disappears when the stakes get high. As far as Flames' best player, I'd put Giordano in the conversation with Monahan. And then Johnny hockey (or Lindholm).
  8. One of these times I need to remember to let the ruxpin login be right just so it's not so damn obvious.
  9. I think all that is valid. I mean, as it was Hextall signed arguably the second best player available. I wouldn't advocate spending just to spend. I completely agree on the Hakstol thing.
  10. I agree. On the other hand, they did finally win the organization's first playoff round. But yeah, if they lose this next round, the tradeoff remains huge.
  11. From here, it's impossible to disagree with any of that. My assessment was simply about "now," but you're right that the cavalry seems to be coming.
  12. Yes. But i don't want to mix passengers with those that are simply too many duplicate players that are working hard. We do have passengers. But my nagging concern is what tucson was talking about. Too many redundant grinders and passers. Like a bunch working hard grinding to get the puck (it happened once. It was a Wednesday. I remember because it WASN'T raining) but once they get it and can pass it, there's few if any to pass it to that know what to do with it to take a good shot. We have a bunch of point guards with no jumper but no shooting guard, power forwards or centers. But yeah, the passenger thing, too.
