McDavid didnt make 50 PTS in his first 50 games rookie season, Pettersson did. Only three other guys that have. Injuries or not, it is what it is. 

McDavid's rookie season was also his draft +1, whereas Pettersson's was his draft +2.

Markstrom stood on his face today. 3 goals against at face value doesn't look great but watching the game this could easily have been a 6-3 Calgary win. Marky has officially made me a believer in his starter status.

I am not a fan of Markstrom at the beginning of the season, but boy did he turned his game around!

 

Thank you for stealing 2 points!

Not happy with Green's decision to put Granlund as the third shooter. I know Horvat sucks at shootouts, but he had scored his first goal in whatever many games and played solid throughout the game. Then, Green has the wherewithal to put Markus freakin' Granlund as the third shooter??? You don't think Horvat sees the first 2 shooters being Pettersson and Boeser and think to himself that he's part of that trio of core forwards and that he belongs to shoot with them? Who the F*** is Markus Granlund?

 

And why was Gudbranson out for the last 2 mins? If the Flames scored then and there I might've converted to a Leafs fan lol

Wrong.... Jake has an excellent shot.  He scores a lot of goals from positions where most players don't do anything.

 

Where he is lacking is in not being willing to go to the net and get the dirty goals.   He has the size and hands to do that, but seems to be afraid to get his nose in there.

Yeah, I dunno man. I like Jake, I really do but  his Utica output was about the the same (9G 10A in 65 games). If he was such a sniper you would think he would have produced a bit more down on the farm. I mean, I hope he develops and turns into an impact player but I recall hearing the same comments about Mason Raymond year after year. " He just needs more time to develop" etc etc.

 

I wonder if TG should play him on PP1? He can take Horvats spot in front of the net. At the very least he'll pick up some assists and maybe a tip in or two on that unit. At least get his confidence up.

It might be beneficial to have Horvat on our PP2 anyway so that our PP1 isn't so stacked while PP2 is compartivly weak.  I dunno about you all but I cringe every time I see Petey and Boeser leave the ice to make way for the PP2 to come on.

Yeah, if not Horvat at least Goldy or Leivo. Granny was a strange choice.

how many gaffs can one defence make,

before they're forever banned?

Lost track of how many times I wanted to throw something at the screen from all the unforced turnovers and failures to clear the puck.  Beiga, Pouliot, and Gudbranson were terrible, but at least Biega joined EP in rubbing Neale's bad season in his face.  WAY too many Flames left open uncovered, especially Johnny Cherrypicker, and although much of that was from the unforced giveaways, how do you continue to leave him uncovered and give him clear breakaways?  You know he's out there, who's his check?

Big shout out for Stecher...…..26 + minutes tonight!

Stecher competed well but looked a bit over his head.  Probably his career high in minutes, and he did a lot of good things.  Will have to see how he continues to handle increased minutes like that, but anything to get the PP going at this point is needed, and badly.  The 4:3 and 5:3s are particularly embarrassing.  Zero confidence, they look like they don't even know what they're supposed to do.

Markstrom was sensational. The boys bent but didn’t break. 

They folded in half and came out the other side.

Just watched the pvr after my own game.  

 

What can can I say.   Unreal effort and I’ll eat crow on my early season comments regarding markstrom.

 

And fwiw, my team plays the oilers next and I like our chances.

There are no easy points in this league.

The only point that is a given, is "Don't be like the Oilers."
