I hate myself for saying this, but I think Flames surprise people and finish around 7th or 8th.

We were 8th against western teams last year with like 11 SO losses

I swear, Calgary Puck gets mentioned in this thread more often than anything else! Kinda sad really.
Also, to all the people "shocked" that there's a Flames thread, there has been one for the past few years now. Since 08 if I remember correctly.

I can't wait for some Calgary/Vancouver games so that the real bickering can start! Need Schneider to have a crap game so that we can come up with a nickname for him too...

Just a friendly head's up: It's fine to have a thread, but if you're just going to troll Canucks fans, then be aware that you're eventually going to be banned.

Hey, where's that guy with that Tool avatar? Forget his name now since he's been banned for so long. Oh yeah, Lateralus. What a tool he was.

Goin to be same story different year for the flames. Goin to be in the hunt only to miss by a couple points and get a mid pick while they could tear it down and get a top 5 pick seeing how this draft has a pretty solid prospects. Also what's with cervenka I have a feeling he isn't going to live up to the hype of being a topsix player. If I was a flames fan I'd be worried about getting nothing for Iginla if he leaves to persuit a cup and come to Vancouver. Wouldn't that be funny would flames hate the canucks with iggy lol.

Baertschi currently out again with neck injury. From what we've seen so far, he is fairly skilled, but also fairly brittle.

He may not make the Flames lineup this season.

First you give me a warning for not trolling. Then you troll another forum member in the very next sentence? Hypocrisy much?

Baertschi was out with an upper body injury. Possibly a concussion. But he came back and played in the AHL already before the lockout was announced to be over. So I think he should be fine and ready for training camp.

In his defense, Lateralus was the biggest troll since that J-Bo guy.

I have to shake my head when I listen to the Flames' house media. Saying that they see the glass as half full all the time was an understatement.

They like to state how they only finished 5 points behind the Kings, but fail to mention that the Kings were in the basement for half the season and made a incredible turnaround after Darryl Sutter came on board. The Flames were nowhere near the level of team the Kings were (hell, neither were the Canucks)

The Flames organization is just as Mickey Mouse. They invite Al MacInnis to a 'Ring of Honour' equivalent ceremony where they honour him but don't actually retire his number. We are talking about the 3rd highest scoring defenseman in NHL history, who won the Conn Smythe trophy as MVP for the Flames' only Stanley Cup in 1989. Even though Al's most productive years were in Calgary, he went on and was a great enough player that St.Louis retired his number AND erected a statue of him in front of the arena. Despite all that, the Flames feel MacInnis isn't worth losing a number.

You can't spin a turd into gold Calgary.

They might want to consider giving their #2 goalie some playing time, because Kiprusoff can't play forever, and believe it or not, he can suffer an injury at any time. They have been extremely lucky this hasn't been the case so far.

What are you talking about? The Flames are one of the teams that gets good value contracts

Say, I may have been pointing out how people from other fanbases have been banned? And telling the truth isn't really trolling, is it? He really was a tool.

On this forum.. I've been advocating that Bob Hartley would be one of the best options for Canucks' coach had AV been fired. I'm excited to see what he can bring after a few years away from North America.

I also have been cheering for Backlund for a long time and I hope he is able to turn it around a bit this year.

SVEN of course is exciting too.. I hope he gets some time with Iggy.

Tanguay on Sven:

“You look at the goals he scored last year with us, all of a sudden he’s there, the puck’s on his stick and it’s in the back of the net. We want him to bring that,” said Flames left winger Alex Tanguay.

He's a long ways away. A very serious injury in his first pro campaign really held him back and he's been fighting to get his consistency back ever since. He's at best a long shot to make the Flames over the next 3 years.

I would love it if the flames got in the playoffs as the 7/8th team. A series vs flames would be pretty awesome. Miss the old Canucks/Flames battles.
